Mellowing Our Harsh

We had a great day today. I slept in. We all enjoyed the backyard. Skylar made one of her concoctions with the big container of cinnamon, just like she used to do when she was three. She also drew, colored, and cut out various pictures of fruit and vegetables and taped them onto the wall outside my office. Then we headed down to Beyond Bread for a long, delicious lunch at a large, round table -- not easy to secure at that busy hour -- followed by a leisurely walk around the Reid Park Zoo. The animals were in fine form, from the frolicking rhinos to the excited black panthers -- jaguars, really -- eagerly awaiting their afternoon steaks. Now I'm off to Club Congress to see And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead. Not bad for a "day off" in the middle of a hectic week. My next entry will document our feast.
