The husband ended up with a few free weekdays last week. Not being a girl to let anything go to waste, I hopped in the car and yelled “Buh-Bye” as I pulled out of the drive.
I ran a few child-less errands – which amazingly took less than half the time they normally would and then….then, I, I… didn’t know what to do with myself. I’m not really a mani/pedi type girl – rather, I wasn’t much in the mood for it.
So, I drove around for a bit. Remembering that I had my trusty laptop with me, I thought, “meh” ((shrug)), I guess I could use a few hours of uninterrupted work.
So, I pulled up to The Blackbird Cafe (b/c I recalled they had wi-fi and I had heard what a great little spot it is), popped in and made myself right at home on a little black couch in the way back. I ordered up some tea, a little soup and voila’ – I was in business!
With it’s quiet jazz background music, it’s WAY friendly staff and my new best friend (this black leather couch) I got crazy amounts of work done.
All in all, The Blackbird Cafe is a definite winner for my escapes when I can wrangle one. And I have to say, sneaking off and not having to answer when you hear “Mom!” has it perks!
Dear Blackbird, I shall return!
