We first had a wonderful meal. Kate had the vegetarian which was risotto with Parmesan, portabellos and asparagus and I had the NY strip with shrimp. The meal was amazing and the service impeccable. After dinner we ordered a chocolate cheesecake that was served during intermission.
Neither one of us had seen the play before so it was a lot of fun to see it together.
On to Paco:
Last week a friend brought over a huge supply of sewing/craft things that her mother had had for years. They had been clearing out some of the old things in her home and were going to take everything to Goodwill. I was the recipient of the craft/sewing things! I called my sweet friend Connie and she and I went through everything and sorted out who gets what. I'm happy to tell you, no blood was shed and hair was not pulled. We're mature like that.
I got most of the sewing supplies including some wonderful vintage hand embroidered pillow cases and Connie took the yarn. There was some lovely aqua colored yarn and I pointed out that I thought I needed an octopus in that color. I have no idea why I needed an octopus, I just wanted one at that moment. Sweet Connie met up with me on Friday night with a crocheted octopus. I just love him and I can't believe she did it so quickly!
His name is Paco and I love him so very much. He makes me deliriously happy. Thank you again Connie, you know I love you!
