I woke up in a tree this morning, coated my feet in honey, and started off the day with a light stroll through an ancient fern meadow I found last year in the back of my closet. It’s kind of like Narnia, but with more nudity and less heroism. Also, there weren’t any speaking animals. That would just be weird. After some solid Qigong breath work, I glided into my car seat and headed up north to try out this neighborhood café that Carol told me about. It’s called Coffee House Café, and they apparently take great care in selecting and delivering their coffee. Alright, I’m game.
Starting at 10:30 a.m., Norma’s Cafe is being a real sweetheart on its 56th Anniversary Celebration by allowing you, the customer, to purchase one of three different entrées (the chicken fried steak, meatloaf, or chicken and dressing) for the low, low price of $1.79. Each dish is served with green beans, mashed potatoes, and a buttered roll.
Did I mention that you could get this whole plate of food for $1.79 only? No? Because it only costs $1.79. Actually, with an 8.25 sales tax rate, your total cost is $1.94 if I’m doing my eighth grade math correctly.

The think-sustainably family over on Junius Street partnered up with its neighbors (The Lab and Little Bean) to install a chicken coop in the back garden.
