I meant to update yesterday, but it was a hectic morning. How was everyone's weekend? Mine consisted of Friday night dinner at the Columbia Firehouse near my apartment. This restaurant embodies much of what I love about living in Old Town. This historic building was built in 1883 and was once a working firehouse. Now it is a gorgeous restaurant with chandeliers and lovely old brick. In spring the courtyard is full of pink cherry blossoms making it the best setting for a nice brunch.
Saturday's freezing rain led to a much drawn out morning of making breakfast, spinning records, and playing scrabble with my love. Sometimes you need those rainy days inside to improve mental health. I did eventually leave to go stock up on Trader Joe's goodies and to make some home made sushi.
Sunday was my day to explore. I went and checked out the national aquarium! Some highlights included the albino alligator, a nautilus, and a blow fish. Got to love the winter for encouraging some indoor exploration for a change.
Now to begin working and enjoying my venti bold!
