Yesterday was quite a day in more ways than one. Some of my descriptors include:
Exhausted – I am an election officer and spent about 19 hours manning the polls.
Excited – To see 80% of my precinct cast their votes. Hats off to the residents of Northside!
Inspired – As I welcomed and cheered many first-time voters who were enthusiastic and proud to exercise their democratic rights.
Grateful – Tastebuds American Bistro said yes to serving one more couple late in the evening.
Satisfied – To imbibe a delicious 2004 St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County for $30.
Overwhelmed – By a $13 entrée: Cassoulet...Duck Confit & House Made Pork Sausage Baked with Bread Crumb Topping served with Warm White Bean Salad. At last duck confit! And non-crunchy beans! What a FANTASTIC dish!
Surprised – To learn that Obama carried Virginia. (and very pleased!)
Hopeful – As our nation chooses to enter a new era.
