I'm Baaaack!

So, how was your August?

Mine was...interesting. It was mostly good. I'll spend the next couple of posts updating you on where I have been and what I have done.

I will start with this week!

I went to dinner with my dear friend, jac. (I would love to highlight that and send you to her blog, but SHE WON'T START ONE!!) Our birthdays are right next to each other. Hers is the day after mine. We go out every year to celebrate "our birthdays". We were both swamped this year, so we didn't get to go out until this week.

We went to a lovely restaurant called Shade. We had a de. li. cious. meal. And some lovely adult conversation. How rare is that?

We don't usually exchange gifts, but this year we did. You'll never guess what we spontaneously gave each other. Preserves! I gave her figs and she brought me some of her yummy orange marmalade. I'm already almost halfway through the first jar. She is my big-city-simple-living buddy. She named our chicken, Scarlet. She lives but a mile down the road and we hardly ever see each other. : (

But we saw each other this week and it was fun!

Yea!! I'm glad your back-and I'm glad you had a great time with your friend. Everyone needs that!

Hey look! I'm famous! We had a great time, didn't we? Glad you are enjoying the marmalade. I haven't yet tried the preserves because we've been laid up with a stomach bug. :( I'm over mine, just waiting on the husband to get well too.

We need to go out more than just once a year for our birthdays. I know we can make that happen!
