Next Tuesday I will be meeting two friends that I used to work with almost nineteen years ago. Estelle and Tina worked in the Civil Dept of the Clerks Office and I worked in the Probate Section. We have all since retired and try keeping busy volunteering at different activities and locations. At least once a year, depending on our schedules, we meet for an early dinner (4p.m.) in a centrally located restaurant. We just love catching up on each others lives. Applebee’s is having a special- entree, side and desert for under $10 which makes it affordable to have a coffee or low cal drink, too.
On Wednesday. I am meeting my friend B. J. who will be my cruise roommate in December. We thought it would be nice to start early planning of wardrobe ideas and places we would like to see. Lunch will be at an outdoor restaurant under an umbrella just in case it decides to sprinkle a little. Friday will be the end of the week and the beginning of a new month, the first of August. My friend Judi will be having a birthday and my gift to her is dinner, a glass of wine and a nice card. We always have lots to talk about and she loves fine dining so I think I will be making reservations for “Sam Seltzers Steak House” where they serve the best sirloin and fillet Mignon. Their dinner rolls are warm and scrumptious. Mentally, I am adding up calories and thinking I might have to ration some of my appetite and spread it out over the week and maybe spring for some birthday cake. It should be a nice week of good friends, fun and food……….
