Things are warming up

I left the office at 4 PM yesterday, after a busy day, and headed over to Kelly’s, enjoying the walk from the metro station, down the hill to her house, because the air is finally getting warming around here. Eventually, we headed back up the hill for dinner, going to a place called Mexicali, which we thought was Mexican but might have been Salvadorian. Kelly had fish tacos and I had two shredded beef tacos and 1 chicken taco. It wasn’t bad. The guacamole wasn’t particularly good, but I’ll be in Southern California next week and plan on dining on good Mexican food a couple of times while I was there. On the other hand, they had $2 drafts, which was nice.

Earlier in the day, I picked up a copy of Juno on DVD as a little surprise for Kelly. I gave it to her yesterday when she got home from work, and then we watched the movie before going to bed. We’d both seen it before together when it was in theaters. Kelly saw it another time with a friend. Even on a second viewing, it was a great movie, with a great soundtrack.

I had a dream last night that I was having a bad allergic reaction to something and was breaking out in hives. I’m pretty sure I know what that dream was all about.

Got to sleep in this morning, which was nice. Two full nights of sleep in a row. It was warm already when we left for work. It’s supposed to be up in the 70s today and into the 80s tomorrow. Tomorrow, we’re planning to attend our first “outdoor” happy hour of the year.

548 pages through In Memory Yet Green. No writing yesterday.

Busy day at work today, I’ll be in meetings from 11 AM – 4 PM. Which means I won’t have time to get a whole lot done.
