The Situation Will Be Fluid

It’s been a bittersweet sort of weekend. Yesterday was good. The day was spent lounging around the house, half-heartedly cleaning, but mostly relaxing. In the evening our wonderful babysitter came over, allowing the husband and I to go out. Together. A rare event, really. And I am so glad we chose to eat at Namaste. It’s a new Nepalese restaurant in Uptown (once again I have Chel to thank for one of my weekend food choices). The restaurant is lovely. Open and airy and serene. It likely wouldn’t have been so serene had the little man been along. Anyhow, it was a relaxing meal, with a number of vegan options to choose from. My favorites…I started off with the vanilla nutmeg chai (made with soy milk), the spiced potato appetizer, and some of the husband’s cauliflower with potatoes and peas. Yum. And though it’s Nepalese, it’s different enough from our beloved Everest that we can enjoy both. Afterwards I attempted to take the husband to Intelligent Nutrients, so he could try their vegan turtle cake, but they were closed. Doh. It was just as well. We were able to head over to the Riverview Theater without having to rush, to catch a showing of The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada. I’m not going to give anything away, but wow, I totally did not recognize Dwight Yoakam. Weird.

have a seat, at Namaste

Today, well, we’ve been a bit on the tired and cranky side. We neglected to tell the babysitter what time to put the little man to bed, and he stayed up too late. And then we all overslept. And we had places to go and people to see today. But all that running around did help somewhat, as I’ve been trying to keep my busy brain away from the fact that this Mother’s Day I’d expected to finally be a mother of two. Thank the heavens I have my little man. But I would have loved for him to have a sibling, and he really was looking forward to being a big brother. Maybe someday.

    Wow! I’m glad you liked Namaste. I gotta try the chai sometime early in the day. In further food news, G and I went to Trader Joe’s last night and even though it was insanely crowded frenzy zoo and many items were actually sold out (!) it was still totally awesome and we got a boatload of super yummy stuff for cheap, cheap, cheap.

    Wow, I really have been in a cave.

  3. Heehee. I plan to head over there some weekday, after things calm down a bit.

    And chel, yeah, the chai was fantastic (and I say this as a long time fan of the Tea Garden, which is kiddie corner to Namaste). Can’t wait to go back.
