Still quiet around here while the rest of my immediate family are in those 'I' countries (Italy and Indonesia). I've spent a few nights with my mom, so that's been nice.
Speaking of nice- one thing I like is having a nice, quiet dining experience with a friend. I had that this very night. . . at Brio's in Southlake with Bailey. I ordered the lasagna (I'm too predictable) and she ordered a special chicken dish. Both were wonderful (we sampled each other's, of course) and for dessert we shared the creme brulee trio (pumpkin flavored, chocolate - and regular (or vanilla). Oh my goodness. I think I have a new favorite dessert - those three creme brulees.
Speaking of favorites - I'm thinking of changing my other blog to something with my favorite jokes, quotes, and just general favorites. Nothing deep . . . just fun. Just a thought. I haven't done it yet, but I very well might. (It can be accessed from my profile page. I KNOW it should be able to be accessed from here - with just a click, surely, but I'm a neanderthal with this stuff, so maybe you out there should teach me how to come into the internet age.)
Speaking of age, I'm really seeing that one is never too old to learn new stuff. Me, for instance. I am learning how to play chess. And by admitting it on this blog, well maybe I will actually learn it - and retain it this time! Of course I know that practice makes perfect, so I guess I better get with it
Ah, but for now I must go and get ready to watch my favorite TV show: CRIMINAL MINDS - on CBS. (Did you know that if you went to their website - on CBS - you can take a quiz to see if you would make a good profiler? If you're looking for a career move you might ought to try it.) (I made an 80 on it --- NOT BAD, but I don't think I'll quit my day job.)
I'll sign off now . . . To my honeys out there in those 'I' countries .... be safe .... and know that I love you and am praying for you every time I think of you .... which means I've been 'praying without ceasing'!
