Thomas and I are the lamest couple. We had a babysitter, we had a gift card to a g00d restaurant and after dinner we didn’t know what to do. First we had to drive out to my in-law’s house to water their plants. It has been in the high 90’s and last night was still very warm. We stopped by Fern Ridge Reservoir and enjoyed the lake and a great breeze. There were people sailing, jet skiing, and inner tubing. We headed back to town and ended up visiting an acquaintance of Thomas’ at the Eugene Hostel (the guy owns it). In our defense there wasn’t much going on downtown, probably because of the Lane County Fair. We drove around, and around, and around. At one point Thomas lamented, “I just want to DO something!” Unless it’s First Friday Art Walk, there isn’t usually a lot going on downtown, except for the homeless and the perpetually strange. We ended up at the Valley River Inn in their restaurant, Sweetwaters, for dessert and coffee. We shared a piece chocolate mousse torte cake and Thomas had coffee. We got a table outside next to the river and we could hear the music from the fair. It was nice. Then we went home to find a mess.
