Hi my friends, thanks for stopping by to visit! Shirley, my best friend from 7th grade arrived yesterday for an overnight visit. After a nice visit we headed out to dinner - hubby had a chore to finish here so just the 2 of us went. The Old Country Kitchen is a time-honored restaurant in Portland - it opened the year before I was born - so you know it's been around for a while. :-) Shirley had never been and enjoyed dinner so much she wants to go again when her husband comes on the next visit. We both had an 8 oz. filet mignon and both were excellent.
Today she joined us for lunch with my 2 sisters, 2 brothers-in-law and hubby to celebrate my older sister's 69th birthday. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory. I had Gourmet Jumbo Crab Ravioli.. it was very good! What a fun time we had chatting and telling old tales. Shirley's birthday is on Thursday so I brought a gift for both my sister and Shirley - I gave them each a hand-painted watercolor card, and gave my sister a frame for hers. For sis I gave her a painted Rainbow Trout - for her lake house at Fishhawk Lake. For Shirley I gave her a Sumi ink goldfish painted card! You can see the type I make here: Teresa's Watercolor Cards
Thanks for stopping in and I just *ADORE* the lovely comments on my last post. Hugs all around to all of you!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
