I decided to sneak out for a bit this afternoon with the girls. We are sitting in Starbucks waiting for the housekeepers to finish cleaning te house. Right now, Vi and Avery are sharing back and forth a chocolate chip creme and a vanilla bean creme and eating banana cake. There is sone relaxing music playing and I can't say enough about the air conditioning. In a minute we're going to head over to the adjoining Barne's and Noble for afternoon story time.
Avery keeps saying she's cold-blooded and her hands are freezing. She periodically gets up and does jumping jacks to 'make her heat' because I explained she's warm-blooded and makes her own heat. I am, of course, having my usual iced vanilla latte. I just popped on to check my e-mail from work, but it is a slow day so... here I am. I'm going now, though, it's time to eat more cake and read some stories.
