Tonight is date night!!!
In our house it means getting just a bit dressed up and going off to our neighborhood gem...
We love this place.
It is always crowded.
The chef is amazing.
The martinis are icy and cold.
We usually know what we will have before we even get there.
It's a relaxing time for us to talk and connect.
That is what we will do.
We will share a starter... tonight it will be calimari...
made with deep fried lemons and chili peppers and an amazing aoli.
That is as far as I am thinking.
Often I have a starter for dinner.
I would kill for Sovano Bistro's pommes frites.
They come in a metal cone that has white parchment paper on the inside.
But Dennis won't let me have that for dinner.
There is still time to think about it.
I finished reading Val McDermid's The Retribution...excellent.
I also just finished Ellen Potter's The Humming Room...really different and really lovely.
The Retribution was complex and hefty...but I loved it.
The Humming Room short and sweet...but I loved it, too.
I just started reading this book...from a small Indie press.
YA...a wealthy hidden family...
their future lies with the abilities of an estranged daughter.
Tomorrow is GAME DAY for this house.
My husband is from Colorado.
He is...how shall I put this...
extremely excited for this game.
He loves this team.
He has passion for this team.
Lucy and I might be in another part of the house while the game is on.
He is incapable of watching it without major histrionics.
He will be all over the place.
We cannot have people over nor can we watch the game anywhere but safely in our house tomorrow night.
I don't get it.
Do you know anyone who has this kind of over the top extreme passion for a sport?
