Summer In The City

I had a great day in the city with Tresa on Saturday. I took the 7:08 train in and she picked me up at the station. We had an awesome breakfast at a vegetarian place. I had scrambled eggs with spinach, pesto and sun dried tomatoes, wonderful potatoes and warm fresh baked bread. Oh, was it good!

Next, we went to the condo so I could clean the litter boxes for her. Chris was out of town and you can't clean little boxes when you are pregnant. Here is Harley checking out my water bottle, and Casey lovin' her cat nip.




I had also put new elastic in some maternity jeans for Tresa, since they were getting a little....uh....snug...so she tried them on and I finished them up.

It started raining as we headed out to get our nails done. We had to park about 3 blocks from the shop and under normal circumstances a 3 block walk would be nothing....but in the pouring rain with a pregnant woman in flip flops.....well, let's just say even with an umbrella...we were drenched when we got there. The owner of the shop is awesome and threw our sweatshirts in the dryer while were were getting our manis and pedis!

While we were getting our nails done...the rain also stopped....so that allowed us to enjoy the festival on Division Street. Lots of crafts and food booths and most of the shops had sidewalk sales or in store discounts.


I made one purchase and here it is....

Is this not just the cutest little organic hat ever? I can't wait to see our baby boy in it when he arrives this fall! We saw a lot of darling clothes, but everything in the stores right now is for summer....so we will have to wait a little while. It's okay though, I'm finding plenty of cute little things I can buy now.

I did stop in a beading store and couldn't resist snapping this picture for my bead loving blog friends Lanyard Lady and Chile Cats! Aren't the colors just mesmerizing?

After some Starbucks and bit more walking it was time for me to catch the train back home.

It was a great day! Did you have a nice weekend?

What a fun day of "girl time!" That little hat is precious. And the bead photo...of course it made my day. Sometimes I wish I lived near a big city.

How fun that all looked, Kathy! That hat is so cute.

We actually spent some quiet time in the hammock this weekend. Glad to know we both still fit.

Yep ! I had a nice weekend but not as good as yours ,Your lunch sounded great , I love food , cooking it , eating it , and giving it away to friends . One who came on Saturday has been a friend for 30 yrs,. plus , I think in all that time I have sent her home without cheese straws , no more than !/2 dozen times.
I,m no good at making quiche .
I have only recently learned how to make a really good fruit cake but bluebell told me to use the Delia Smith recipe , result , perfect .
The sidewalk shopping looks interesting and that cute hat!!!
As you read on my blog I,m now into making ice cream , coffee flavour today .--cottonreel

That sounds like SO much fun! We had a nice time celebrating a birthday (I posted about it) and visiting our grandson's preschool-to-be (will blog later), all while dodging raindrops.
