What a lovely dinner, Pingo! Nice about the booth working out so well and the great service. Your having lost 15 lbs helped the space issue, lol. :)
My Dad was a pastor, and there were always people who forgot the time change and came into church just as we were singing the last hymn, lol. Whoops!
Told DH about the cupcake dilemma - if he's going to eat something anyway that will make him sick no sense spending $$$ on non-inflammation ones. He agreed, but said he'd "try" to not have one of hers. Um, have one or don't have one; as Master Yoda said in Star Wars, "Do or do not. There is no 'try'." He'll probably eat 3 and suffer the week for it. But, if he doesn't and wants these I'll make them on Tuesday. In the meantime, he'll have his yummy lamb, his favorite meat, and I bought frozen raw jumbo shrimp to cook today for shrimp cocktail as an appetizer, something he often chooses out at fancy dinners for an app. Not sure about the sides. Spinach, I think, and probably our mashed turnips which he loves.
Need to get put together. The boys came home after 20 minutes with the gate closed on one of the properties they need to cross to get to the trails. So, he loaded up Gracie and his skiis and went back to Plan A. I'd like to be dressed by the time they get back!
My friend from town is going with me tomorrow to the chiropractor so she can go with me to Trader Joe's afterwards. I'm really looking forward to spending time with her. She works at night as a nurse so is often on the opposite day/night schedule.
Also planning to see if I can do lunch with the trips' dad (unlikely) or another way-back friend this week. I've been having a down, exhausting time lately and getting out and about with dear friends lifts my spirits. I need to counter having to pick BIL up from the airport on Tuesday with something fun or I'm going to have a nervous breakdown. Maybe I'll buy some new Spring clothes, too. Nothing I have fits given I was 15 - 20 lbs heavier last Spring. I wish we could post photos. I have before and after photos, one from last July 4 and one from this past Valentine's Day that really show the difference.
