Habit burger, Easter, cookies.
The boys are back & it's Easter Sunday and we are already back to the old routine. Edda up early, Vince still asleep, an early run for me, an early ride for Jeremy and -- taxes, laundry, baths, meals to plan, projects to finish, lessons to go to, outings to agenda-ize. Everyone came back safe to me, thank goodness. <3, <3 I was trying to teach Jeremy to take a good selfie. He's surprisingly not very good at it.
Last night (Saturday), was the last night of just me & Edda - so we headed out to Habit Burger.
I love the Habit Burger - they play quieter music than Five Guys and their meals are cheaper and I might like the fries better. Two burgers & fries for just about 10 dollars. We sat there a long time and we were surrounded by families with little kids. I do sometimes feel a little awkward when I'm out just me and Edda - we are a bit of a show with the wheelchair, the huge bib, the hand feeding of Edda and the various random flinging of food bits - so it does take me some momentum to overcome the inertia of staying home. We were sitting there at the HB (at one of their numerous handicapped tables (also a plus)) and Edda was almost done with her burger when a couple came up to me and told me that I was doing a great job with Edda and then said hello to Edda - this happens every once in awhile, especially when I'm out alone with Edda. They told me that they did the same thing with their son who passed away last year at the age of 25, lots of feedings at restaurants. Anyways, it was a nice conversation, I'm happy they stopped by and said hello. Sometimes I'm not in the mood for this type of interaction, but today it was fine. Actually it was very nice. We wished each other a Happy Easter. I think inspired by this little conversation, the toddler at the next table ambled over to say hello and give me a high five and then looked a bit at Edda. Then his mom crouched down and told him to say hello to Edda and blow her some kisses. Which he did and then offered me his fire truck. Very nice. Happy Easter all!
I wasn't ready to go home yet, so I ordered a sundae which was $2.50. At that price, how big can it be? It can be enormous apparently.
Nat came up to use our oven and made a million of these delicious Easter cookies. She bent each bunny arm into an embrace of each chocolate egg.
