Happy weekend everyone! Was it just me or was that one of the slowest work weeks of all time?
Either way, I’m excited to finally have some rest and relaxation. And most importantly, get some quality time in with the parental unit who came up to visit while my cousin runs the Chicago Marathon:Hey ma!
As I was uploading this pic, I said, “hey mom, I like this picture. It turned out well.”
She inspected it (after pulling out her glasses of course) and said, “eh. I guess I look alright for an old lady.”
Psht. Now I know where I get my critical eye from…
She and two of my aunts roadtripped their way up yesterday (living on almond joys and gossip- or so I’ve been told) and my mom was waiting for me at my place by the time I got home from work. So then it came time for our turn at catching up until I finally said I’d need something to eat or an arm would go missing.
Originally we had planned to go out to eat somewhere that at least had real silverware, but I wasn’t in the mood for anything too heavy and she had eaten a later lunch. Solution?
Why Jason’s Deli, of course. I was craving deli. This has happened a lot as of late. Not sure why. My mom did soup and a salad, while I tried something new to me from the “Lighter Side” part of the menu:I had the turkey wrap- which was filled with turkey, sprouts and guacamole (yes!). Sans tomato because I’m crazy and don’t like tomatoes in my sandwich. Also, it came with chips and guac (double yes!) on the side.
Sadly, the Goose Island beer didn’t come with it. I supplied that on my own. This was my first time trying the Harvest Ale and I have to say it’s not my favorite. I still like Goose Island’s Summertime much better. Maybe it’s just because I prefer lighter beer and not so much the malts, or maybe it’s because that’s me being in denial that summer’s over. Either/or.
Quick- name your favorite beer! Or if you don’t like beer- your favorite beverage to relax with?
Anyhoo, this is a quick one because clearly us girls have shopping to do. With very little time to do it before we travel downtown to meet up with the rest of the gene pool for an evening out.
Have a great Saturday! And for all you kids running, GOOD LUCK! I’ll be in the crowd. Most likely with a bright yellow scarf. If I see you, don’t be surprised if I’m jumping up and down like a maniac. It’s sorta what I do.
