Fun

Ommm … my goodness!

I was doing really well at the mindfulness and meditation class tonight. It was our second try at calming the mind. My mind was clear. My third eye was pointed inward. I heard a noise from the vicinity of the lady in the chair next to mine that could have been furniture moving or gastric…

Pad Thai One On

Sheri and I went on a little adventure tonight. We went to Old Town Littleton to have dinner and do a bit of shopping. I also found a Thai restaurant called Wild Ginger to try out. I’m not a huge fan of Thai food (too much coconut) but there’s always something I can try. Sheri loves…

This magically appeared

Like most offices we have a restroom at work. This appeared without prompting or warning next to the soap on the sink  the other day: Yes, it’s a real product. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s made by the people who make “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”.

Yes …

… that is a Breckenridge Bourbon Manhattan served at Mercury Cafe. And yes, it has a rose petal in it. And yes, it’s a delicious as it sounds. We had a great time celebrating Sheri’s birthday tonight. If you’ve never been to Mercury Cafe, you owe yourself a visit.
