It’s frigid in Seattle. Well, you know, as frigid as Seattle gets. I spent two decades in the midwest, and while I may miss many things, being able to see my breath is not one of them. Normally this wouldn’t be a huge deal, but we have construction going on (Yay master bath!!), so Cormac and I have been trying to stay out of the way.
As such, we’re trying to stay out of the house as much as possible. Today we met up with some friends at Cafe Momo. I am sure the staff at Momo think I might be homeless, or at the very least that I need to branch out and get a life, but seriously, it’s a 3 minute walk from our house, they have a huge enclosed play area, and I can let Cormac run around while I load up on caffeine. It’s basically my Mecca. We managed to kill an hour and a half, and catch up with friends, which was really nice.
After a stop at home for lunch and a nap for Cormac, we decided to head back out. But first we needed to bundle up! Here’s Cormac showing off his new dinosaur hat and gloves.
He actually seems to like them and kept them on the whole time.
Oh, and he’s actually in love with my scarf. He thinks it’s really funny to wear it.
We swung by the park to run off some energy.
Not many people were braving the sub-40 weather today, as you can see. After some stick-finding, swinging, and climbing, we walked around a little bit more, and stopped into The Butcher and The Baker for some meat for lunches, and Cormac got to enjoy a sample of some cheesecake.
We finally made our way home, but I guess Cormac still had energy to burn
He basically ran around like a wild man while I prepped dinner. The above photo is an action shot of him jumping while banging my rolling pin. Fun!
And more scarf time.
Construction continued upstairs until 6pm, but I managed to get dinner on the table, some roasted pork tenderloin with sauteed red cabbage. I deglazed the pan with a splash of apple cider vinegar.
Brent got home a little after 6 and hung out with C reading lots of books and did bath time before putting him to bed. And now I’m drinking (spiked) eggnog and watching really lame Christmas movies on Netflix. My kind of evening.
Can’t believe it’s already December! Cormac and I are making an impromptu trip home to Chicago next week and we leave in 10 days! So looking forward to it!
