I left the house at 11:15 this morning and drove to my daughter Debbi's house. I had some pretty tight spaces to drive through to get out of my street because of all the construction work going on. I'm paranoid about getting flat tires now too.
Debbi and I went out to lunch today to a place called Grass Roots, (I think that's the name of the restaurant) which is vegetarian. And although I am not a vegetarian they have some great food. We sat outside on the patio over looking the edge of a wooded area. Debbi had soup and a salad and I just had a salad. We splurged and shared a dessert - Silky Chocolate Pie. It was as good as it sounds. The piece was tiny but very rich so it was just enough for us.
As always we enjoyed our time together. :-)
This little gray tree frog sat on the railing next to our table the whole time we were there. They offered to move the cute little thing but we didn't mind it there at all and it never moved an inch. Our server said they have several of these little frogs that hang out there. Some times they sit on top of the umbrellas.
There was a bit of a problem getting in my street again to get to the garage. I have to pass the front of my house, go around a bend and turn into the street which leads to the back of my house, where the driveway is. I squeezed through some narrow spaces and got to the turn and then was stopped because there was a concrete truck pouring the driveways of the new houses right at the bottom of my street. I didn't want to back up because it was a pretty tight squeeze on a bend. So I waited for the pour to get done. The truck then pulled in my street to let me pass which was the street I had to turn up. He finally pulled out of my street and I was able to get to my garage. What an ordeal to get in the garage!
Did a few things around the house and then knitted on a white square for the sampler afghan.
Before long Ken came home from work and out again I went to eat. This time we went to Mamma Lucia's and met Cheryl there. It's restaurant week with a great special going on. Salad, any pasta dish, a drink and dessert all for just $10.99. We had a nice time eating and talking. I ate way too much food!! No snack for me tonight watching Netflix. I may skip tomorrows snack as well!!
Hope this Wednesday you had lots to smile about.
