Normally this would be enough for me. Coffee and a book store? That is my ideal day. Add to this a fabulous lunch - outside - in mid-November - in Connecticut and well.....that is almost too much. I have driven by Caseus a zillion times, but we usually default to our favorite Indian restaurant when we are in New Haven. The girls do not like Indian as much as we do, and usually we revel in the opportunity to have a meal there. Caseus is a fromagerie and bistro and it is great comfort food. In hindsight, we should not have ordered both a cheese plate and a ginormous grilled cheese, but it was very, very good. I tried to ignore the fact that I could indeed feel my arteries clogging, and vowed to do a cleanse, after I enjoyed this meal, outside, in 65 degree sunshine, in November, with Greg.
We had just enough time left to pop into an eclectic vintage clothing shop before we had to head back to pick up the girls. I’m so glad we took this time together. The holiday season in retail means longer hours and more travel. Greg and I will not get this opportunity to spend such quality time alone again for awhile. The leaves, the laundry and the food shopping got done eventually. Those things are important, but not nearly as important as the time we spend talking, laughing, strolling, and reveling in the day.
