The funny thing about knowing that people are reading your blog is that you start to feel obligated to write about something exciting each day. But as I said in my first post, I am allowing my mind to lead me along my way. So, this post starts with a warning, this post may be informative but not overwhelmingly exciting. I think this goes against writing protocol if you want people to read your blog but I am a painfully honest person. So here is it goes:
I finally washed my car. After two hours of cleaning and debugging, I am proud to see my car shine again. I love the “wash your own car” places. I totally understand why they need them here. I first tried one of those drive thru car washes but discovered that I had just as many bugs and huge areas of dirt the machine had missed. So, off I went to wash my own car. It was well worth the time. I can’t imagine how often people need to wash their cars around here.
Sleep-a good thing. I once again surprised myself by sleeping in until 11:30! What is that about? Oh, well, nice to not feel guilty about it.
It is really hot outside so I am going to wait to go take photo’s until this evening.
In the mean time, I have been very productive. I have been organizing all my files on my computer. I seem to gather a lot of lesson ideas and then forget I have them. So, I am going to make my life easy this school year by arranging them in an easy to use format. I have to admit I have trashed a lot of files. If your anything like me, this is a therapeutic experience. I tend to get excited and copy files, lesson plans, and pictures I think I will use during a lesson only to find out later that they weren’t practical to use. So, cleaning-out these files has been a good thing even if you think I should be avoiding anything that resembles work. 🙂
Today’s internet connection is being brought to you by: Caffe Ibis. If you want really good coffee (so my friend told me) and cheesecake (Yes, I had to blow my diet and try it. It was well worth it.) then this is the place to visit in Logan. They have a great deli that offers organic food and gluten-free options. Yum! This is right up my alley. This place definitely has a different crowd than Starbucks. I felt right at home as I entered and noticed that employees all look like they came from Berkeley. Patrons seem to range from older men sitting around chatting, young college students, and people who look like they are in touch with Mother Earth. I love it! I will definitely visit this place often during the next two weeks. I am looking forward to visiting when they have an open mike night with live music.
Since I am telling you about this place, it would not be right to not mention another place to visit if you are ever in Logan. A few weeks back, my cousins’ wife posted on Facebook that when she travels “Yelp!” never let her her down. So, I decided to test Yelp out and decide for myself. Boy, was she right! I was surprised to see that the top rated restaurant in Logan was an Indian restaurant called, Tandoori Oven. I always have to be really careful when I eat out because I am a celiac. So, I was actually excited that a place that I could easily eat at appeared on Yelp. It is a small restaurant with a cute little Indian lady welcoming you as you enter the restaurant. This restaurant’s food is completely authentic. It was just what I was hoping for. I had the tandoori chicken with rice. Yum! So, if you are every driving by Logan, this is the place to stop at.
Well, all this talk about food is making me hungry. I am off to go grocery shopping. Let’s face it, I am on a budget and it is just easier to cook my own food than worry about cross contamination of gluten. I am so thankful to be staying at my friend, Pam’s house where I can cook my own food. Bye for now!
