Yesterday was one of the best days I’ve had in a long time. I started out the day with a walk on the Katy Trail. That is one of my favorite things to do. One of these days I want to stop and eat at one of the restaurants they have there. There are two. I’ve been to the Katy Trail Ice House once and loved the atmosphere. There is a new restaurant called the Company Cafe that I still have to try.
When I got home, my mom and I went to meet my sister and her family out for lunch. We chose Maple and Motor as the place to go. I had been there once before, but no one else had. It’s a small little burger place at the corner of Maple and Motor Street. I am going to go out on a limb and say that’s where they got their name. They have one of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten.
Later that day, I went and got my hair cut. I went to Lure over in the West Village. We watched them as they were building the salon and worried that they weren’t going to make it when they first opened. That is definitely not the case now, as they have a loyal following. I barely got an appointment when I called a week in advance. I can see why they are doing so well, because they really do a great job and they pamper you! They will offer you a glass of wine while you wait to get your hair cut. They also have tea and water, but I opted for the wine.
