What do you do when it's nearly 70 degrees and the middle of November?
Spend as much time outside as possible, that's what. After lazing away the early morning in my pajamas reading the Washington Post and New York Times online, I headed out at 10 for a long loop around the neighborhood. Nothing better after spending hours on an airplane than stretching your legs and getting the blood flowing again.
Yes, it was back to the airport and back to DC for me yesterday. Originally, the plan was to drive home with my mom (12ish hours in a straight shot) but as Indiana bureaucracy forces her to stay in the state longer to sort out issues with the estate, she decided to send me home to "babysit" my 20-year-old sister. Ah, the joys of family.
Coming home to a totally empty refrigerator required a big stock-up at Trader Joe's after lunch (only my second Chipotle visit since moving back to the United States!).
New TJ's find: Ruby Red Chai Tea. Holy yum!
Time to enjoy this unseasonably warm day before temperatures start dropping again: me, iced tea, Ruth Reichl and a sunny seat on the patio.
