Today was a day off for Omar.
Today there were older two kids at a class, a girl at the grandparents, and a baby with us.
Today there was coffee.
Today there were drawing lessons and piano lessons with the grandparents in the afternoon.
And a napping baby in their room.
This all equals a Curbside Gourmet lunch date for Omar and me.
I’ll have the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with a side of crab cake sliders, thank you.
And together we talked books and kids and our town.
This was all followed by an afternoon at my parents.
Kids scootering, baby drooling, turkey roasting.
I figured I should clear last year’s never-cooked turkey out of the freezer to make way for the next one.
Then a crazy rainbow followed us home, and we saw half of our town out enjoying it.
And now there is chai, Bach, and my bed, which is surely the trifecta of something.
