This was the day we had to do chores: one of them is the dreaded laundry. Although I like the accessibility of our apartment, the one thing lacking is a washer and dryer. Oh, well. It's just something we've got to deal with until we can move to a better place. With the economy troubles, who knows when that will be? Maybe when I get a good job or win the lottery!
At least we're not washing our clothes by hand. That's what I did when I was still in the Philippines, living in the dormitory when I was in college. The laundromat wasn't popular at that time because it was too expensive.
Just finished drying me....ah, the clothes I mean.
But the happy thing about doing laundry in Berkeley is that we got to hang out at Meridian. It's this new pub right across the street that caters to sports fan as evidenced by their windscreen televisions.
They have an area crammed with books and a fireplace. The cushioned seats are so comfortable it almost feels like home, --- almost. Except the part where you get to pay the bill. (hehehe)
They have a selection of ales that my man loves and their food is oh so...served delicately like you were in a fancy & expensive place. Their plating is superb, you'd hesitate to mess it up. That's why we had our Valentine's dinner there, but that's another story. I'm just remembering what we ate and I got carried away.
Charcuterie Assortment: prosciutto, salami and other sausages.
Delicious and hearty: Braised Oxtail and Potato Gnocchi Stew.
When the laundry was done, we headed off to watch "Monsters vs. Aliens". We had a lot of laughs. It's cool that they featured San Francisco, so we had fun trying to point out familiar places.
Not a tiring day at all even if we did our laundry because we got to relax too. What about you, do you like doing laundry? What chores don't you like doing or would try to postpone as much as possible?
Stay cool and keep smiling!
