Why Lemony?

Today is a sleepy day for me and Billy is being very accomodating. He's off with the girls at a lumber yard- one of his favorite play places, and the girls usually have a good time too. He's all charged up to make a table for the laundry room, and a platform to stand on in the laundry room when the basemenst gets water in it (like now for instance). My big accomplishment for the day was folding four baskets of laundry. Oh, and I took Georgia out on a date to Dos Reales, which neither of us have been to, and we had a great time. We were in the noisy lunch rush and had fun people-watching together. We watched the waiters whisk out arm-loads of hot dishes impossibly stacked from silver-mitted finger tips to hard-working shoulders. And we saw the Monticello Sages high school? (maybe junior high) girls basketball? team. Georgia was impressed. I had the Pollo a la Parilla. It was muy bien. But it has put me to sleep.

As you may have noticed, I'm not fasting this year. I'm still nursing Maya at bedtime. At first, I was thinking that I could swing it anyways because it is not very much nursing, but then I read that fasting releases toxins into your bloodstream at dangerous levels for nursing babies, so scrapped that idea. Even if I can handle it, she can't. Oh well. Some day.

Dos Reales is a favorite place of mine when I'm in town. It's great that you've discovered it, too. I usually have the burro (maybe Grande Burro?) with just beans and cheese and I can never finish it. It makes me sleepy, too. I love authentic Mexican food.
