Not A Bad Week!

Yesterday I went to lunch at the Beacon Grille. My Dad wanted to take his sister Teresa out to celebrate her upcoming birthday. My cousin Kathie & tagged along. Kathie actually picked it, following my father's dictum, the restaurant must have cloth tablecloths and napkins. I had the most delicious sandwich called an Innkeeper's Melt and sweet potato fries. The upside of not being able to finish my lunch, is that I know what dinner is going to be! I told my cousin Kathie that when I win the lottery, I will pay someone to bring me that sandwich every day.
Today I walked down to Thompson Square. It's happening more frequently and it is becoming easier. Even if it is at a maddeningly slow is progress. I picked up a class schedule from the Charlestown Yoga studio (which is run by the marvelous Sue Lynch of "There & Back Again"). I've been trying to work out with a DVD, but I am so slow and rusty.......I think a class or two might be good for me.

When I was in DC with my sisters, Jen & I snuck off to Modern Nails for a mani/pedi. Grace preferred to nap in the hotel. It was one of the best manicures I have ever had. It finally chipped today, two weeks later, which is phenomenal for real nails.

I got to see Frankie's Brittany today.....we get along SO well. We both love Frankie. More importantly, she likes the red starburst and I like the orange, so we split a bag!

I might even head down to Rocky Nook this weekend and take my Thomas and my Frankie to breakfast.

Oh, don't you just love Sue? She's great. By the way, guess who California girl is getting more and more lassoed in by Boston area yogis? Moi.
Yes, so look at what I'm up to next, which if things work out mean I'll be there at the end of August for 4 days.
