Today's prompt was lunch.  And, again, it was quite appropriate.  Gak's phone started giving him grief about a week ago.  It seemed that some times when he wasn't even quite touching it all kinds of "buttons" were pressing.  So, since it was less than 30 days old, we went to AT&T.  Since it's an iPhone, we had to go to Apple.  We made an appointment at the Apple store down near my mom and made plans to meet up for lunch.

This morning was pretty low key.  The boy-o decided he wanted strawberries and whipped cream and milk for breakfast.  He didn't want a waffle or french toast sticks or cereal with it, just berries and milk.  Ok.  Find by me.  I made some french toast for Gak and I.  I covered mine with two small peaches cut up.  I think I had more peaches than toast.  I love peaches and the ones I've picked up at the store this past week have been awesome.  As in, they taste like pure summer.  (They're a little more expensive than the loose "Eastern peaches" that are smelling like nothing and are rock hard, but the ones in the bag have been perfectly ripe and so full of flavor you can taste them from halfway across the room... worth the extra $1 or so.)

After cleaning up and getting ourselves cleaned up and dressed we headed on down to the mall.  Let me tell you, I know why they have you make appointments at the Apple store for tech service.  It was bus-y.  After taking one look at the crowd, I look at Gak and say that Boo and I were going to go wander.  There's a Lego store in this mall.  And my boy-o loves Legos.  As we were about halfway to the Lego store, my phone rings and it's Amma!  She decided to run some errands and was at L.L. Bean.  I tell her where Boo and I are headed and she joins us there when she was done with her shopping.  Boo and I had a great time looking at the various builds that were on display, both the Lego kits and the ones just made up.  Boo was in awe when he saw the wall of open Lego bins that he could choose what he wanted.  He decided that he wanted to spend the last bit of his birthday money on a small container of "choose your own" bricks.  You'd have thought he was in heaven!

Anyhow, by the time Amma, Boo and I wander back to the Apple store, Gak was ready to go.  We head over to Michael's Deli for lunch.  Let me tell you, I don't get corned beef very often, but I truly love it when I do.  I even remembered to take my camera out before lunch was brought out.  Unfortunately, I didn't remember it until after I'd already eaten half my sandwich and was just waiting to get a box for the second half when I suddenly remembered why I had my camera out.  So, you get a shot of half a yummy corned beef sandwich and half of Boo's grilled cheese.

That was about all the excitement of the weekend.  We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Peace to all and may you be able to treat yourself to something yummy (or something fun) now and again.
