Rainy Saturday

And it is rainy today.  Most of us are moving slow. 

Yesterday Little Guy had several episodes of vomiting, and so I took him to the pediatrician.  Turns out he has a sinus infection.  We finally picked up the antibiotic this morning and plan on starting it a lunch time today.  We also kept him home from swim class this morning.  We figured that getting wet on a cool and rainy day would not help him feel any better.

The best part is that Little guy slept until 7:30 this morning!  I was stunned!  Cannot say I feel very refreshed, though.  Still feel tired and a little queasy.  Not sure what is going on.  Trying to stay hydrated and resting as much as I can.

My birthday diner last night was a Frankie Rowland's.  It is a fancy steak place in downtown.  The steak was amazing, and the wine was fantastic.  I had a California red zinfandel, and then an Italian red Zinfandel.  I realized that I drink a lot of American and Aussie wines because they are better to drink alone.  You really need to drink European wines with meals.  The Italian wine was great, but it was a lot earthier than the California wine, which was very clean and easy to drink.  (If you could not tell, I am a bit of a wine snob.) 

It was fun going out last night.  It had been a while since I had gotten dressed up and gone out to a fancy restaurant.  The best part was:  no children!  It was lovely to have an entirely adult evening.

Sort of nice to have a lazy Saturday.  Better get back to it!

I love a good Zinfandel! We were supposed to go to Frankie Rowland's back in February for Valentine's Day and had to cancel at the last minute. Definitely want to get there very soon. I hear it's fantastic. BTW, we went to the Blue Apron in Salem on Saturday and I highly recommend it. Great, fresh food and nice atmosphere. Book ahead bc reservations are hard to get.
