Sarah and I always enjoy The Elusive Cow bar/restaurant in Bellevue, with its cozy feel, good draft selection, and ease of vegetarian ordering. I know the picture is a little overwhelming, but you can pick our a table inside, car parked outside the door, and a nativity at the church across the street. We shared portobello fries and nachos and we each had our own beer. Perfect.
Sarah stayed an extra day because she picked up a cold. Germs are everywhere, no blaming it on any one person. She started on her way back today, stopping in Berea to run to the top of the East and West Pinnacles outside of town. Neither her cold or the cold temperature seemed to bother her too much.
And now the house is once again too quiet. The front door stays shut. The refrigerator door stays shut. The washer isn't washing. There are no tv video games and no hockey equipment here and there. The piano lid is closed. No one is asking for a charging cable. Sigh.
