Mmm...coffee!

We went to Starbucks and got coffee this evening. Well, we three girls got coffee and my cousin Jim got hot chocolate...but anyway...

We stopped at the grocery store first and picked up some shredded cheese for with tomorrow's lunch. I picked up one bag of cheese, and then got up to the checkout and realized that maybe Mom had told me to get two...so I had to call her and ask, and she did want two, so I had to go get another one, and I felt like an idiot! I mean, it was weird enough, the four of us coming in and buying some cheese, but then I had to mess it up...ugh.

So then we were going to go to this Christian coffee shop, Moby's, that's nearby us. But when we got there, we couldn't figure out what to order, because all the drinks had names like "Divine Mocha" and "Heavenly White Mocha", and they didn't have frappuccinos which is what I wanted. It was nice that it was a Christian place, but it kind of seemed like everyone knew each other and we were outsiders, and intruding on their little cliques or something. Plus there weren't enough seats anywhere, so that we could sit together. So we went to Starbucks and sat and talked for an hour, which was fun!

This afternoon we all went on a walk up to the church playground on the corner, and we all froze, and had to come home and thaw! and after we thawed, Rebecca, and Andrea, and I were playing guitar and trying to sing...well, Rebecca was playing guitar and we were all trying to sing! Unsuccessfully... and I really stressed my voice, and felt like I was losing it...my voice that is... So we gave up on that and went out and made brownies for tonight and eclair cake for tomorrow, and messed up the recipe on the eclair cake, but I think we got it fixed so it will work fine!

Then I tried to play Rebecca's guitar...very unsuccessfully, because I of course can't play electric guitar any better than acoustic and I had no idea electric guitars were so heavy...

Then we ate pizza and went to Starbucks...and didn't I wrap that up very properly...mentioning what I started out the post with? At least, I think that's what you're supposed to do when you're writing an article and stuff like that...which I'm not good at...which was part of our discussion at Starbucks...and I think I'd better go to bed now, since I just messed up the nice neat ending on my post...Good night! :) I had too much caffeine...

Natalie! Your new blog post has an error in it!!

And we didn't need seats at Moby's...we could have just loitered around the counter...

Thank you...I fixed it..."any better" instead of "and better"...I guess I should have had more coffee!

Christian coffee, huh? I guess they do not sell any Devil's Food Cake there.

So, how many different coffee shops did you visit... how many times?
