Day 92: Tuesday, April 2, 2013
Made the goodbye rounds in Ohio–grandmas, family, friends who were at the hospital to have their first baby, and a last minute stop for coffee at George House Coffee–then we split one of their Pistachio Muffins as we got out of dodge. The staff was very friendly and one of them actually lived in Taylors, South Carolina, for a while–right around the corner from where we go to church! Another customer was from Findlay (like me) and back visiting before she headed home to another town South Carolina. Small world!
Stopped a little off the beaten path in Kettering, Ohio, for lunch at a restaurant we hadn’t heard of before: Meadowlark Restaurant. It was fabulous! Bryan had the turkey thigh tacos with their potato string fries with housemade curried ketchup (quite possibly the best fries and ketchup I’ve ever eaten). I had a grilled chicken sandwich with fried lemon slices (my favorite part), tapenade and roasted tomatoes, and a side of borscht soup. I only wished I lived closer so we could try more of their dishes. And the atmosphere was relaxed yet professional–everything from business meetings to ladies luncheons to dads with kids to a romantic date.
Finished the rest of the trip with only a couple traffic jams…and maybe a few more stops at Starbucks. Had a really good time talking and listening to music with my man!
Day 93-95: Wednesday-Friday, April 3-5, 2013
Back to work. And back to Goga. So glad to be back in the gym (and the sauna) after some long days in the car. And thankful that the sun decided to show it’s face this afternoon! Hoping the prediction of a sunny weekend is right! This girl’s ready for Spring!
