Lame Post Friday is getting lamer and lamer, I fear. Perhaps I am coming to the end of my usefulness as a blogger. SAY IT AIN’T SO!!!!!
I have been having a fun evening. My husband, Steven, and I went with our friend Kim to a beer tasting at Route 51 Beer Belly Bob’s Discount Beverage Center in Ilion. We purchased some beer, of course. I do not drink as much beer as I used to, but sometimes a beer really hits the spot.
Kim had commitments elsewhere, so Steven and I continued to dinner alone at Salvatore’s in Herkimer. We had soup and garlic knots. Yum! Then Steven had a cup of coffee and I inadvisedly had a piece of chocolate spoon cake for dessert. Oh, was it ever good! However, it was also very rich and filling. If I dare to step on the scale tomorrow morning I will no doubt find I have jumped up three or four pounds.
Now we are home, and Steven put in our DVD of Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol, one of his (and my) favorites.
Christmas time is all about revisiting old favorites, isn’t it? When we got to Salvatore’s, we had to sit in the parking lot to hear the ending of “Do They Know It’s Christmas” by Band Aid. I love that song and had not heard it yet this year. Inside the restaurant, we enjoyed more favorites: “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Sleigh Ride,” and Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” as well as another favorite I had not heard yet this year: Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time.”
Well, talking about that has put me in a sweet, cuddly Christmas mood. I’m going to knit and watch the rest of this Christmas special. Full disclosure: next I may watch Dateline. After all, I still gotta be me. Happy Friday, everyone.
