It is cooler today but still nice. Dh went fishing so its just me and the dog. I have a little cleaning to do in the bathrooms and laundry area but otherwise it's an easy day. I may do a little decluttering if I feel like it too.
Last night we went out to eat at new restaurant. I had a Plain Jane hamburger with chipotle aioli and fries...very good...and I ate about 2/3 of it. Then dh and I shared a Bacon Sundae with caramel and chocolate sauce...I know, perfect for me the diabetic, right?, well at least I shared and we didn't eat it all. They made it different than the one other bacon sundae I've tasted. They had the bacon chopped up IN the ice cream..I didn't like that as well as at the end I could taste these fatty bits in the melted ice cream..yuck..but the rest was good. When I had it before it was ice cream with the sauce and a strip of very crisp bacon standing upright in it. Our son and his friend were with us and we had a great time.
Afterwards we went for a walk (my son, his dog and I)...something I rarely get to do and really enjoyed it. I estimate we walked about 1 1/2 mi at least and chatted the whole way.
Mellen - Welcome!! I am 71 and one of the older ones here I think. I am retired and live with my retiree dh who is 79. We love to travel but we also love our home. We eat out 1-2x a week and it is hard to stick to a diet, but I have to try as in addition the the weight issue, I am also diabetic. When I eat out is the only time I usually have dessert and I don't always then, but sometimes I do. Last night I ordered it mostly to prolong the good conversation.
Cherry - Great picture!! You are a beautiful woman and that baby is so sweet!
Good lucking guys too!
Cajun - Glad you got to go to the dress fitting. That's special. I was so happy when my dd asked me to go to help her pick out her dress. She had been out on her own for a long time already and they did most of the wedding planning themselves so it was really special to be included. Your diet sounds just right for you.
Donna - Are you out spending the money?
Karen3 - I would think bridge is good for the brain. Glad you enjoy it and hope your team (whatever you call it) did well. Great idea for Karen/Tim.
Karen31 - My prayers are still going up for both of you.
