Neato Burrito and the Wendys of the Future
Today was our first day off (no show, but we still drove.) We spent a good chunk of our morning sitting around the dining room table with the Littlehales, eating pancakes, laughing and having great, deep conversations before we left Blair County. Also, had a wonderful opportunity to sing for Brian's Mother, Marie, who is living with MS. The whole family joined me on Somewhere Over the Rainbow, You are my Sunshine and Where Have all the Flowers Gone. It was a beautiful moment to share with all of them, especially Marie, who really perked up and glowed during You Are my Sunshine. We took off hours later than anticipated, because, again, we just felt so at home with these folks.
Had a bit of a rainy drive at first, through more gorgeous mountains and scenic overlooks. Stopped for lunch in Harrisburg at this MAGNIFICENT Burrito place called Neato Burrito. The interior design totally wow'ed me and I LOVED the weird vintage record sleeves on the walls in the bathroom. BUT THE FOOD. OH MY GAWD. THE BEST burrito bowl I've ever eaten.
We also stopped to use the restroom at the craziest Wendy's we'd ever seen. Seriously, it was so futuristic looking that Annie and I felt we should be preparing for a board meeting or to deliver a power point presentation inside. Digital Menu Screens, a Modern flameless Fireplace, and very loud hand dryers in the bathroom. It was nuts. So nuts it made my brain hurt a little. (See Photo!)
Then, there was a target nearby, and again, it was our day off...so no rush....so....I GOT SOME AMAZING BOOTS but I can't show them to you yet because I'm incorporating them into my outfit for tonight. We got to Dan Collins glorious woodland tree house in Media, PA around 7, ate some dinner, caught up, and headed downtown to the Irish Pub, Sligo's where we heard some great live music. On the way back to Dan's, we sang Beatles songs and showtunes, and eventually we had to quiet down so as not to disturb potentially slumbering neighbors. We stayed up talking and listening to music til way too late. Which is such a good thing and we all need to do that from time to time.
This morning, I woke up, looked out the window, and felt the sun give me a pat on the shoulder.
