Change of plans


Sunday, August 19, 2012

Last night my DH and I were going to go out to dinner with our friends. As the day wore on, though, neither he nor I were particularly enthused. Not because of our friends--just that we were kind of tired and a night out with our friends would be a really late night because the four of us cannot stop talking. My friend and I decided to reschedule. They are in the middle of a major renovation at their house and I think they were tired as well.
DH and I decided on what we thought would be a quiet meal out. Yesterday the weather in VT was spectacular--in the mid 70s and no humidity.
We ate at a new venue in town right along the river's edge. There is a rooftop deck and that is where we were. We were lucky to get right in--shortly after we got there the place filled up and there were people waiting for some time to be seated. My DH wanted to go there because he loves beer and this place has their own brewery on the first floor. I do not like beer at all but they do have a decent wine list so I was happy.
I ordered my standard "keep me out of trouble" standard--garden salad, grilled chicken on top and blue dressing on the side.
It was a nice night out!
Hugs
Karen

    THE LOCATION SOUNDS WONDERFUL. I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO EAT AT A PLACE LIKE THAT. BUT HERE, WE HAVE MOSQUITOS THE SIZE OF SPARROWS. SO MOST PEOPLE STAY INSIDE. THOSE THAT DO VENTURE FORTH FOR EATING OR OTHERWISE PUT ON TONS OF SPRAY AS WEST NILE IS HUGE HERE.

    Hi Karen! Sounds like a good time.

Are you still knitting? I've been away from here so long I've completely lost touch. I'm still doing the charity knitting.

I'll sign up for your blog so we can stay in touch.

Hugs,
