Yesterday I had the day off from work, so I decided to spend part of the day outside relishing the gorgeous fall weather. After several days of rain, it was so delightful to enjoy a dry, crispy-cool and sunny Thursday.
I had several errands I needed to run, but I also wanted to relax and take time to feed my day with a visit to one of my favorite cafes; grabbing a sandwich while sitting outside eating it.
For those of you who might not have a Corner Bakery where you live, it's a faaabulous eatery that offers a delicious menu serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. OMG...the bread and pastry menu is to DIE FOR, especially if you're someone like me who worships bread (carbs) and has a sweet tooth that doesn't end. Anytime I stop at the Corner Bakery, it takes me at least 20 minutes to decide what I want because it all sounds so good that my conclusion is to order EVERYTHING on the menu.
Me: (standing there and staring up at the menu) "Ooo...I think I'll get that, no wait, maybe that, no wait, that sounds good too, maybe that, no wait, oh shit, I think I'll just order one of each!"
This is the Corner Bakery I went to, which is located on the corner of 17th Street and JFK Boulevard.
I just so happened to go during the city lunch hour rush, so I had to take a number (90) and wait for my order, which I finally decided on the California Grille on Harvest Bread Panini:
a vegetarian mixture of grilled zucchini, marinated artichoke hearts, roasted tomatoes and pesto with fresh spinach and provolone cheese.
And here it is....
And just about the time I was getting ready to put the last piece into my mouth, I turned my head to the right and saw this...
Adorable little sparrows EYEING me and tweeting, "Oh, can we have some too? We love panini's."
So of course, I torn the rest of my panini into tiny pieces and shared it with my fine-feathered friends.
But as you can tell from this next photograph, ONE of the sparrows ate MOST of it...
*I nicknamed him, FULL-FIGURED FREDDIE.

Yesterday was one of those days when you say to yourself before going to bed, "Man...this was an exceptionally great day. Thank you!"
Have a beautiful fall weekend everyone!
