Coffee Shop Sabbath

Sittin here at Tastebuds in downtown Salisbury, NC. Michael and Jerm are playing some of their best songs. They are, by far, the best musicians in Salisbury. I could be a little biased... but they ARE good!

I had a Chocolate Milkshake with Hazelnut. I wanted Hazelnut AND coconut but he's fresh out. Mixing chocolate, hazelnut, and coconut always makes me reminiscent of my college days. Blackbird Coffee in Milledgeville, GA had this one drink : Coco-Mocha-Nut. Same combo as was mentioned previously. I made that combination a lot when I worked at coffee shops. First Starbucks while I lived in Atlanta after college, then Its a Grind in Charlotte, before Michael and I were married. I have a tender spot in my heart for coffeeshops. Tastebuds is especially good.

So, first blog.... ever.... fun times. I'm feeling very vulnerable right now.... hmmm....

So yesterday, I was off from work (PRAISE HIM Y'ALL!). I had it all planned out. I had a lot of housework to do so I was gonna sleep in a little and then just make a day out of it... Well, I flippin woke up at 230am and was UP for the rest of the day. Michael woke up at 230am too, strangely, but that punk, he went back to sleep at 430am. I, on the other hand, headed to Walmart. Where else could I go at 430am? We needed dish detergent. Then I came home and worked my tail off. Did laundry, dishes, swept, almost broke the oven/lit myself on fire.... yeah, funny story.

The clock on our "vintage" stove was making this crazy loud noise. So I thought I'd surprise Michael by fixing it. (ha ha.) Those involved were the trusty screwdivers, sweat, brut strength, and of course, sparks!! I was so scared I laid down on my nasty kitchen floor that I was planning to mop (which I did this morning) Poor Michael. I finally had to go in and wake him up with tears and whining and confessions. His reactions to my insanity has always surprised me. He wasn't mad at all... just very amused it seemed, that I thought I could fix it. Yeah, the joke was on me.

So, after that, I pretty much just worked until I was about to drop and then worked some more. Don't ask me why. I don't know why. I should've dropped dead on my feet at 3ish. I didn't. And then I get like 6 rough hours of sleep last night, too. Madness. But hey... it's a fun day today. I'm just enjoying a nice Sabbath with my friends. We just played our last song, so not sure what the rest of the day holds, but I'll bet its gonna continue being a great day. More restful than yesterday at least.
