Busy-ish week, which is why I haven’t really written. But busy means there’s stuff to write about, so there’s no excuse, eh?
Monday night George took me to a yummy Chinese restaurant on the North Shore, which is about 25 miles north of Metairie, across Lake Pontchartrain. It’s kind of exciting to go on a mini-road trip for dinner, though I have to admit the food wasn’t as great as I’ve heard. Maybe because it was a Monday night. Who knows. But I’m not picky.
Tuesday Polly and I went shopping. We ate at Chevy’s for Mexican food, also very yummy. Deelish! Then we went to Barnes and Noble and a couple of other stores. Woo! Also was able to use an old friend’s employee discount. (I shan’t name names…)
And then yesterday, a few of us in our department got to eat lunch on one of our boats, the American Queen. It’s a beautiful boat and the food was too, too delicious. And filling. We had four courses! Fried green tomatoes, then seafood gumbo, then Trout Amandine with green beans and garlic mashed potatoes; then bread pudding with whiskey sauce. Holy cow! I don’t know if I could eat two or three meals a day for at least three days on one of our cruises! (Okay, I lie. I could. But I would hate myself.)
Last night I did laundry. Whoopee. And then went to Polly’s to watch Sex and the City. Yay, yay, yay! But only three episodes left. Boo hoo.
Tonight George and I are going to our neighborhood association meeting so we can meet this guy who might be able to give us some inside info on a house. Keeping my fingers crossed…
