Hey Bloggy Friends!
I hope you're having a nice day. I thought I'd stop by to share some of our weekend with you. It's been a busy one, but we had a great time. How was yours? Are you all moved in, Puss? Feeling better, Bill? Mimi, did you find us an air mattress yet? Mammy, how was your weekend cold water douche? Monica, are you about ready to pop? My sister is!
Tonight is the night my sister, Alexandra, goes into the hospital to have her labor induced. She probably won't have the baby tonight, but by this time tomorrow I should be an uncle. I'm so excited. I'm planning a trip home in a few weeks, when I'm on spring break. I can't wait.
So, like I said, our weekend was pretty busy. Friday night our friends Kelly and Ed spent the night with us. They came into the city to see a play, then came to our place when it was over. We didn't do much, except chat and have a few drinks. They were our first guests in our new apartment, so it was nice to see how that worked out. We have been a little concerned, because this place is so much smaller. We think it's going to be quite accommodating, though. That's a relief!
Saturday Alan and I met up with Jude at T-Bar, where we caught up over a pot of Lavender Earl Grey tea. Later in the afternoon we walked over to the theatre I work at to see the current show. There were several things I liked about it, others I did not. For the most part, though, it was well done. My favorite part of the afternoon came when the show ended. The three of us walked towards Rittenhouse Square to have a drink at Parc, a french bistro in the city that overlooks Rittenhouse Square. It was fantastic! We shared a carafe of wine, and a spread of three fabulous cheeses with bread. I felt like I was sitting in a bistro in Paris. I had a wonderful time. We'll have to do that again soon, Jude!
When we parted ways with Jude we met back up with Kelly and Ed who were doing some site-seeing in the city. They were famished, so we took them to a restaurant we've been dying to try called Kanella. Kanella, which means cinnamon in Greek, is a Mediterranean restaurant in Washington Square West. Alan and I weren't very hungry, so we shared an entree. We had a whole dorado fish, which was infused with rosemary and lemon. We loved it. It was so good. Kelly and Ed shared a cornish hen, which they both enjoyed as well. I'm definitely marking this one down in my favorite places book.
Today (Sunday) has been pretty laid back. We did our usual grocery shopping, and browsed around the city for a few other things. It was pretty gloomy out, but the temperatures were very reasonable. It looked like it was going to rain all day, but we didn't see anything but a few sprinkles here and there. Tonight Alan made Rosemary Salmon with Lemon Relish. It was accompanied by a healthy spinach salad and couscous. It was fantastic. We were both so hungry after a day of traipsing around the city.
I hope you've all had a great weekend too. Fill me in on all the happenings! I'll chat with you soon.
