Saturday morning

I love to go out to breakfast on the weekend, don't you?  We woke to more snow.  Doug hustled out and shoveled our drive.  We live on a hill an have a big, long drive.
  Then we headed to "the spoon." 
"they dined on mince and slices of quince which they ate with a runcible spoon."
 I love the blonde mocha which is a mexican coffee and the mimosas by the pitcher.

 I love living in a college town.  It is so interesting.  The young men to my right were speaking in a language which I didn't understand.  The women at the next table seemed to be a professor and a student.  I love watching people.  The young woman and the older woman, who I imagined to be a professor, were both so beautiful and seemed to be having such an interesting conversation- I wanted to join them.  Do you watch people like that and imagine what their line of work is, if they are single or married or any manner of imaginings?  It is so fun.

 This pic of Doug- such concentration.  Or maybe he just couldn't see.

this is where we sit when it is warm
 Then we went next door to Boxcar Books.  Boxcar Books is ran by volunteers.  When we went into the store, there was a young lady out front- shoveling the walk.  She said "let me know if you need any help."  Who just lets you go into a store and trusts you not to rip them off? 
There is a public bathroom inside with lots of posters and information.  There is a sign instructing you not to "poo."  Apparently, the toilet will overflow if you "poo."  There was a big chalkboard with lots of chalk in the bathroom.  In pink chalk I wrote "no poo, no ew."  I thought that was a good contribution.

 Because Doug and I were the only ones in the store, for some reason it occurred to me to to make an artistic statement and I asked Doug to take the photo of me, below.  I thought it was funny.  But I'm a little strange different that way, sometimes

too many mimosas!

Sounds like a great town to live in. A blond mocha sounds wonderful. I wonder how it's made?

Sometimes you just have to get out, snow or no snow. What a lovely morning you had.
I love the last two photos. Those two tables in the snow are just beautiful.
You.... sleepy and filled with Mimosas in a book store is a great shot. Hope you got home safely and took a nap. LOL!

Mimosas by the pitcher sound wonderful. Southern Indiana is one of my favorite parts of the state to visit. Got to get hubby down that way again this summer.

I've always loved that area, especially Brown County. Have only been to Bloomington a few times, can imagine the great places you must know about. Hmm, maybe you two should begin showing us all your special spots?!
Laced with mimosas, I'd be dancing on table tops......great post!

It seems like a fun thing to do. The photos remind me of the town where we can hang out and enjoy similar shops.
