restroom in restaurant - see plumbing fixtures? (also see me in mirror taking pic?)
OK, this past week started out a bit difficult as I vented on the last post when I couldn't find a parking place for my Monday class. The rest of the week was OK... although a bit stressful as my son was out of town on business and I stayed overnight at his place while he was gone. His place is very nice and extremely comfortable, but I just don't sleep well when I'm not at home and without DH. But because I'm used to at least 8 hrs sleep these days (since retirement) and only got about 5 those nights (had to be up at 5 to get grandson to school for early band practice), my head was achy for a few days. Because of this headache, I wasn't able to get much done on my pottery. I tried - went in Monday afternoon, Wednesday morning, and Thursday afternoon - but found that with my head hurting, I couldn't find my zen.
Wednesday evening DH and I took grandson out to dinner. His dad was due back later that evening. If I've learned anything about 14 year old boys, no matter where you take them, they get a hamburger. This time he got a bacon cheeseburger. It looked good. And must have been since it was gone rather quickly.
Thursday morning I met a good friend for coffee at Starbucks. She and I used to work together and retired at the same time. She was actually an Art Major at one time in Taiwan. I'm trying to get her to take some art classes with me over at the College. I think she would enjoy both the art and the comradery. And since we're over 65, it's FREE.
And Friday my dear friend came over to help me with my machine quilting again. She makes such beautiful quilts and she is a very patient teacher. After we worked on my quilt for a bit, we headed out to try a new restaurant for lunch (new to us). It's pretty cute. Called Whiskey Cake. Very Urban Green. Everything made from scratch, really different decor... plumbing fixtures everywhere. Huge industrial screws used as napkin rings, etc. Here's a picture of what we ate:

After the restaurant, she went with me to a meeting with an Attorney where some notarized forms needed to be signed. J is a lot more savy about these things than I am, so her presence and support was well appreciated. Later both our husbands met us at Salt Grass for supper. We hadn't been to Salt Grass in ages and really enjoyed it.
Oh yes! And DH and I grocery shopped at Central Market this weekend. Apparently Fall is near and Halloween is around the corner as - the pumpkins are out!
Aren't they gorgeous? I love it when they mass them out like this.
These are the odd ones...
