The cafe life

Sep 16, 2013

It’s a Monday and my brother, Nick, is visiting (Joel came down for the weekend, too, but left early this morning). We dropped Oliver at the daycare, and came here to Cocoa Cinnamon to sip delicious cocoa and work (me) and study — Nick is in his probationary period as firefighter in Austin, Texas.

I’m thoroughly enjoying the outdoor patio, the street noise as delivery trucks rumble by, the rising heat and the conversations around us (one table discussing last night’s episode of Breaking Bad).

This is a nice way to start the week.

Nick flies out tonight. Erin has trips to Baton Rouge and Charlotte this week, and I’m off to Washington next week to attend the Sackler Colloquium on the science of science communication.

So, before the week gets wild, I’m enjoying the pace of this day.
