This was the centerpiece. It's the paperweight Barbara gave me for Christmas which is in the same place as it was right after I received it. It hasn't joined my other paperweights because I just enjoy looking at it. It reminds me of a swirly wonderful ocean beach. And then... yes, my winnng Powerball ticket.
We don't even discuss other options and go straight to Gracie's... They were lightning quick tonight. I swear the food came in 10 minutes and despite the outside air temperature the food was piping hot.
Barbara went with the burger, with cheddar cheese, deluxe of course...
And I went for a bacon omelette that came with home fries and a toasted bagel:
She put together this little piece of exercise equipment I bought. I would have done it myself (eventually) but when it arrived yesterday I thought Oh, perfect timing for Barbara to do it, and she did....
As always, a good time was had by all!
Preview: As we were consulting our calendars to pick dates for the next three months -- we're so darn organized -- Barbara realized that February is our 35th anniversary of being friends. That's a long time. She doesn't remember the exact date we met, just that she interviewed for the job in January and started in February of 1981. We've been throuh a whole lot together, and we both made it this far. Yippeee for us. So next month we'll have to do something a little special -- cheesecake from Little Red Hens maybe??
