Went out to dinner at a fancy place last night
Wednesday, October 02, 2013
Tommy Jr. took us out to dinner last night to thank us and celebrate the new beginning of his company. DH and I loaned his company money so that he could get rid of a "partner" that has been a negative draw on the company. So we were celebrating the "rebirth" of his company which without this guy should be able to move forward and do well. Of course his new girlfriend was there and they are simply so cute together. Fun to see how attentive they are with each other. I truly hope this is it as they are good together.
It's funny though we went to a place called Daniels down along the water in Seattle. It's one of those really fancy places where you order your steak and then everything else is extra. I ordered the smallest one which was 8oz. Then we all ordered mushrooms, green beans, and asparagus. I didn't have the bread or baked potato to stick with my no gluten and no night shades. I couldn't believe how expensive fancy places in the states are ..... I mean my steak alone was $49 which is what we spend for a total meal at our favorite steak place in Ajijic Mexico. And that is for two people! Yikes. But it was lovely and the meal was good. Still not as good as the steak place in Ajijic but okay. I think we are so spoiled living in Ajijic with so many things. But it was a lovely evening and the damage weight wise wasn't too bad for me. I am holding my own at 107.
Tonight we go out to eat again with the dear friends who's son's wedding we go to this week end. That is the reason why we came here.
The weather is crazy. Today started in the 40's. Thank goodness we bought Tommy a new insert fireplace that knocks down the cold. It is awesome and I am nice and cozy.
Yesterday, I helped my DH install a new microwave above Tommy's stove. It was a difficult installation that required my DH to reroute electrical outlets and such. He is so talented that way and does such a good job. We got it done and it looks and works great. Tommy was thrilled. Both sons are lucky as their Dad is so handy and can do so much for them.
Hope everyone is doing well. Hope it is warmer where you all are.
Make it a great day.
