Today I decided to take the day off. Having my son visiting from L.A. I had planned some extra time to spend with him and do a “me day” today. An extra day to chill and do some things around the house is much appreciated at the end of a busy work week.
Starting the day at our favorite “diamond in the area” restaurant, Mardes is like a step back of time, located in our very own Mayberry USA. Hidden in a neighborhood nearby and locally owned by a family, it is a step back in time.

'Chilaxin' before he heads back
Everyone knows everyone, the customers are regulars and the restaurant is so small we can hold a conversation with someone across the room. Still offering breakfast specials that include coffee is almost unheard of in today's business world and walking out of a restaurant feeling full spending little money is another gift.
I know my day will go fast as I watch some HG-TV and refresh my manicure but that's what a day off is all about. Chillaxin!
