So here I am, in a coffee shop, to reflect on what you have shown me this afternoon. The day started off beautifully. I had my luggage (thanks to flying with carry-on only), got my rental car without incident (that I pricelined for $10 a day!!!) and drove straight to the Pearl without getting lost (thanks to Google Maps).
It was wonderful. I parked and walked into your gloomy arms. There was some slight drizzle which didn’t offend me, but did my beautiful brown leather jacket. So I used my umbrella begrudingly. Then I proceeded to find the most exquisite little cafe: Everett Street Bistro and had the most delectable omelette. It was perfect with its juicy mushrooms, soft swiss and onions. YUMILICIOUS!! Then I saw an apartment, it was nice. Then the sun came out admist your protests and I put away my umbrella.
I walked all over the Pearl checking out its boutiques and have had 2 cups of coffee and 2 cups of tea all so I could use the free wireless. Oh internet, how I love thee!!
Now it alternates between sunshine and gloom all in an hour and it drives me crazy. I packed nothing but sweaters and boring turtlenecks and it’s supposed to be 75 and sunny this Saturday. Nuts!! I guess I will have to go shopping. At least Portland is tax free.
Up next….the Coco and Jojo monsters.
