Malida was off today, so we got to spend time together. I like when she is off, but I also like when she is working, and I get time to myself. It keeps me happy and sane. In any case, she got up way early (6:30) and tried to convince me to do the same, but I wasn't having it. So she went out walking, and by the time she came back I was up and having coffee.

She had some things to do, so I went out walking in the park. It was a lovely morning, and the temperature was perfect for a walk.


This seems a sort of dreamy photograph. I was thinking about the light and shadows when I took it, and the geese in the distance. I am not sure what caused the rainbow effect--maybe the light hitting the lens from the side or something.

After I got back we did some chores and went out for lunch to a dive place one of my former students told me about. From the outside, it looks like a typical dive bar. On the inside, it looks like a typical dive bar as well, but there was a patio, so we sat out there, next to the smoker, where I could smell brisket.

fish tacos

We had fish tacos, which were delicious, as well as an order of fish and chips, which was also delicious. I will be sure to go back and try that brisket they were smoking out there.


I took this picture of Malida while we were waiting for our food. I like it.

We did some shopping at the asian super market, and then came home. Malida took a nap and I read some stuff about Hello Kitty. Hello Kitty is not a cat. She is a little girl. She is five apples tall, and weighs the same as three apples. She has a twin sister, Mimmy, who is also a little girl. She also has a boyfriend, named Daniel Starr. According to the biography, he is not a cat either, but is also a little girl. Everyone calls him Dear Daniel.

It was a nice evening, so we went out walking in the park again just before sunset. We happened across our housekeeper who was driving past us and stopped to tell me she would be coming by Monday to clean. Interestingly, she was all dressed up and driving a fairly new Lexus.

Those look really good. The description of that bar reminds me of Loretta's Northwesterner outside Seattle.

Well, both actually!

Loretta's Northwesterner. I learned about it because a friend of The Bohemians had a t-shirt from there with an Airstream on it, so when I got back to Seattle I made it a point to check it out, and then wrote it into my story.

That is cool, about Iredale's, sorry you never got there.
