So far most of our time since our arrival in New Mexico had involved drinking water and napping. The road trip itself, the time change and I think the altitude were all responsible for the napping. I drink a lot of water on a regular basis, but here because of the dryness, more water is definitely necessary. Glad I brought my big Weight Watchers 32 ounce mug with me. Fill it up and drink it down. I keep it with me and I’m ok. I think I filled it up three times and drank it down three times on Wednesday.
I almost said Monday, my days are still a bit confused, Ralph’s, too. We decided though that we needed to get into town to see how the old place has been doing without us. Our first stop was at probably our favorite place, Java The Hut. It’s a wonderful tiny, sort of indoor outdoor coffee shop. It’s not fancy, but it has a wonderful atmosphere and we try to go there as often as possible while we’re here. The coffee is excellent. Our friend, Marcia, the owner told us that she went through a lot of coffee blends to come up with just the right one. It’s rich and strong but not bitter. We fell in love with Marcia the first time we met her and have remained friends. I didn’t take any photos of the shop but you’ll see it soon.
We decided we needed lunch before coffee. Ralph had a sandwich from Java, ham salad which he declared “excellent.” I opted to get mine at Diane’s Bakery and Deli, just a few steps away and also a part of The Hub. The Hub is a great little complex of eateries here in Silver City. Diane’s has lots of sandwich options, all on fresh made rolls. I’ve had their veggie before and wanted it again. You get lettuce, tomatoes, onions, banana peppers, mayo, mustard, oil and vinegar. You also get your choice of 2 cheeses and are they interesting and delicious. I had horseradish cheddar and pepper jack/colby. It was so good.
My roll was whole wheat. It also came with a pickle and a cookie! I gave both of those to Ralph. I’m Trying To Be Good. You all heard me say that. We just sat outside of Java The Hut in the little terrace area. We got to meet a man who Marcia referred to as “the character of the day.” Believe me, Silver City is full of them and they all seem to gravitate to Java The Hut. It’s the place to be!
I don’t want to bore you all with my speeches about the beauty of New Mexico. How many words can I replace with this picture?
Full moon at sunrise over the valley. ‘Nuff Said.
Happy Thursday! (Had to think before I typed that!) That’s all for the moment from the Land of Enchantment!
