An ideal Sunday

March 14, 2010

Of many possible Sunday scenarios, this was one of the good ones.

The old gang plus spouses met up for lunch but we preloaded with the cutest cake ever before we went out.   Lunch was at an Italian restaurant that turned out to be Mexican food.  We’re must be aging – our memories of where and when restaurants are on which corners are sorta hazy. The little one had a ball throwing her chicken, rice and beans on the floor – she’s normally much better about eating her food instead of playing with it but she didn’t approve of the chicken today. I fully approved of my enchiladas, and their guacamole was delicious!

Lunch was followed by an hour of basking in the backyard sun.  We had a good long gossip, catching up on everyone’s lives: work, school, family, and health.  A group of five seems to be the perfect number for these kinds of conversations. 

We tentatively made plans for our next meet-up in a few weeks, probably a backyard BBQ since the weather is absolutely gorgeous, and headed out to the mall.  Since I only returned a top to H&M, I made it out of there without spending. Score!

    That sounds absolutely lovely! I wish my friends and I could just get together for lunch to catch up. But that would require picking a location somewhere on this earth, catching a plane and traveling through several timezones. Or there’s always webcamming over yahoo chat, which just isn’t the same. I hate that all my friends moved far away.

  2. What a nice day you had! I wish mine was as good… A strong strom began yesterday here in Jersey, our power has been off and on for two days now.

  3. Good conversation–what a wonderful day.

    Congrats on the new job. Moving may be a hassle, but having a regular paycheck and benefits is too good to overlook. All the best at the new job.

    Your post reminded me of this joke. Considering our respective parents’ medical conditions, I shouldn’t be joking about it, but sometimes you just gotta laugh, right?

    A group of 40 year old women discuss where they should meet for dinner. Finally, they agree to meet at the Ocean View Restaurant because the waiters are cute and buff.

    Ten years later, at 50 years of age, the group once again discuss where they should meet for dinner. Finally, they agree to meet at the Ocean View Restaurant because the food is very good and the wine selection is excellent.

    Ten years later, at 60 years of age, the women once again discuss where they should meet for dinner. Finally they agree to meet at the Ocean View Restaurant because they can eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant has a beautiful view of the ocean.

    Ten years later, at 70 years of age the group once again discuss where they should meet for dinner. Finally they agree to meet at the Ocean View Restaurant because it is wheel chair accessible and they even have an elevator.

    Ten years later, at 80 years of age, the women once again discuss where they should meet for dinner. Finally they agree to meet at the Ocean View Restaurant because they have never been there before.

    It’s coming. I just know it.
