So, here we are on day 5. So far so good, though last night I was tempted to have something I wasn’t supposed to have. I survived the evening with my integrity intact.
We went to a new (to us) place for dinner on our date night. We went to Brick, a sports bar/restaurant in Skokie. It is now on our list of places to go. The food itself is OK, not better or worse than any of the other places we go but good enough to make the list. As opposed to Red Robin which is not on our places to go. We went there once and that was more than enough for me. Brick gives you a choice to sit in a booth, at a table, or on couches. We choose the table this time but the couch will be it the next time. We each get our own couch and they have enough flat screens around the place that you won’t miss a sports event.
The Cubs lost their season opener and we don’t really need to talk about that anymore. Just to say if we thought the change of management and practically an entire team was going to be the panacea we were thinking, we now have a dash of reality to put our feet on earth.
I finished another hat yesterday and I have a specialty hat on the needles. This hat is geared towards brides and bridesmaids. It is a revised version of a hat I already sell and it’s one of those fun bridal hats. It should be finished today if all goes well.
This is Good Friday. Easter came fast and Lent was here and gone in a flash. This is the weekend of the resurrection. The days of new beginnings. It’s also the weekend. It makes for a nice combination. I hope we all have a great time this weekend with spring officially here and the really bad weather behind us except for the occasional rain and storm. (I won’t remind those of us who are crafters and who sell our wares that the holiday season is seven months away – we should live in the moment.) We should come back from this weekend refreshed, renewed and restored.
See you then!
