Blue, blue, late winter sky. This is a section of the building that houses the garage where I get my car's oil changed every 3,000 miles. It also contains a full-service car wash. On a nice day, it's better to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine while you wait for your car to be serviced, don't you agree?

Last weekend Pat and I finally had a chance to check out Coquette's Bistro and Bakery, across the street from Poor Richard's. All of our friends have been raving about it. And it's co-owned by our friend J.B., which is another good reason to eat there! I had forgotten that it's a gluten-free restaurant. Gluten is not a problem for either of us, so it's no big deal to us either way. Regardless, it was delicious. I had the most insanely yummy grilled cheese sandwich (there was brie in it! I'm still dreaming about that sandwich!) and a salad dressed with basil vinaigrette. Absolutely delicious! Pat had biscuits and gravy along with the most sinful doughnut you could imagine: maple glaze and bacon. On our way out I stopped and took a picture of their pastry case. Don't these cupcakes look delicious? And it's all gluten free!

We've had some lovely, mild weather lately. Here's Pikes Peak and the Garden of the Gods captured on March 20th, a day that felt almost like spring. I won't hold my breath, though. I've lived here long enough to know that in March it's safe to say we haven't seen the last of winter yet.

Ah, yes. Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars, a.k.a. Cons, Converse, Chuck Taylors or simply Chucks. Personally, I tend to call them Cons. I can't remember a time when I didn't own a pair. Did you know that the original Cons debuted in 1917? Almost 100 years later, they still never, ever go out of style. Cons are everywhere. (Just take a look at yesterday's blog post.) They're cheap, utilitarian, universally popular and yet somehow subversive. Most people can pull them off, but at the same time they're very punk rock. They go with everything -- even a formal wedding gown! My current pair is brown. What about you? What color are your Cons?
