Chocolate and Blueberries: Perfect breakfast combination.


This was the scene in the morning at Indigo Coffee in Hyde Park Village. I'd had a coffee earlier so the cup is hot chocolate with thick whipped cream. It is scrumptious and as chocolate as I can take. The muffin is filled with fresh blueberries and drizzled with a sugary coating. (I'm sure it's very healthy.) If you wonder if there was a choco/sugar high after this relaxing time in the Village, that would be a resounding, yes! Although it's humid, it's a pretty day without a storm cloud in sight. The perfect, lazy Saturday to sit for a while by the fountain (which is still without water because of our shortage and use restrictions) and watch a great variety of people strolling, biking and simply enjoying the setting. My favorite thing though, is watching the young 90-lb. moms navigate their huge, 6,000-lb. SUVs into tight parking spaces, and load and unload little ones without once stopping their cell phone conversations. They practically need a step ladder to just unbuckle junior from his car seat. It's a hoot.

I posted a photo of the new mansion being built by New York Yankees ballplayer Derek Jeter a couple of day ago HERE. If any of you want to see a shot I got from across the bay of the home under construction on Davis islands, I've included it here. Click and enlarge it to get a better sense of its size. I'm guessing that the homes on either side are in the range of 5-7,000 square feet. His 31,000 square feet makes theirs look like guest cottages.

I love this post. It's a very well-composed photo!

Methinks you might be a chocoholic! Sure doth look good, though!

And that house is, well, hard to believe!

It's way past breakfast time here, but I'm thinking that looks like a great afternoon snack! All the clouds must be up here today because I haven't seen the sun. I enlarged that picture of the mansion and if you hadn't told me what it was, I would have thought they were building a hotel over there!

Your morning snack looks deeeeelicious! And as far as the yuppy Moms go, do you mean to tell me that they can unbuckle junior, talk on the cell phone at the same time as nail filing and hair flipping?? Such talent you have down there.
