We’d had a great weekend with the kids but then I was really craving some “us” time just with Daniel. It so happened my sitter Donna was available last minute, so we said we’d just be gone for a couple of hours and she was fine with that. The kids were watching TV and falling asleep anyway and she just adores them so it was mellow when we left the house.
Of course we went to our favorite haunt, the Floyd’s Coffee Shop on SE Morrison Street. It’s just great there. The coffee is excellent – they serve Stumptown Coffee. This is really important for Daniel who seems to think sleep is over-rated, a trait our second-born has unfortunately inherited. I love the soup bread there.
So we were there for just over an hour and it was just great chilling, people-watching and ending our weekend on a mellow note. What a great kick-start to the work-week ahead.
