I’m really starting to enjoy weekends with no plans. Especially when the weather is nice.
After staying out a bit late Friday night, Eric and I were up pretty early Saturday morning and were itching to go ride our new bikes. We made a plan and headed into Fairmount Park near Belmont.
Oh new bikes? Plural? Yeah, a few days after I got my new bike Eric bought a mountain bike. Our apartment is overflowing with bikes.
I’m not going to lie, learning to ride on the trails was hard. Between shifting gears, clipping in and clipping out, hopping over logs, avoiding brush and trees, I was pretty overwhelmed. But I managed to stay up right for the most part and I am excited to get back out there soon and learn some more.
Later in the day Eric and I ran a few errands. I had to stop and buy some cat food at our local shop. There is a cat who lives there and it might be the ugliest cat ever. But so sweet. I reached down to pet it and the cat jumped up on my back and refused to leave. She just kept rubbing her face against mine and purring really loudly.
We stayed in Saturday night and made pizza, drank beer, and watched terrible movies. Eric and I shared this Crooked Cockeyed Cooper Barley Wine. It was really good! It’s 11% but didn’t have that cough syrup taste that some higher alcohol barley wines tend it get.
We woke up pretty early Sunday morning and decided to go to breakfast and try to beat all of the Mother’s Day crowds. Even though there is a Green Eggs Cafe practically across the street from us, we wanted to check out the new center city location because our friend works there.
I ordered the vegan french toast and Eric ordered the breakfast burrito. Both were delicious and it was nice to eat before the crowds.
