NaBloPoMo #2

Day 2 of National Blog Posting Month...so far so good. So I said I'd give a restaurant review today. I headed to Russian Hill after work last night to meet a new friend who is also new to the city. We tried a restaurant in her neighborhood that I've been curious about for a while called Street. I'd link it and all but I don't think it was all that great. The bar was nice and I had a couple of yummy manhattans. I decided on the ahi with mashed potatoes and blue lake beans and it was all tasty but I ended up with an upset tummy afterwards. Thinking about it now, it was either because they put dairy in the mash or the ahi was a tad too rare. It wasn't a hit for me but the company more than made up for it. We told stories and shared laughs and just had so much fun. Next thing I knew it was 10pm! That's when I usually turn into a pumpkin on a weeknight. We had so much fun we hope to try a different new place next week! Yay!

I think this month will be a good opportunity for me to catch up on all those blog things I've been delaying. First up is my TUSAL report. I'm a couple of months behind but this is the latest shot of my jar. I really like this photo since it shows the oranges and greens from my Pumpkins for Sale as well as the pillow from Carol and floss tag given to me by Carol S. years ago. My jar is all decked out!

I haven't stitched in the last three weeks because I am preoccupied with my knitting project. However, tomorrow is one of my stitching groups monthly get together. I'm hoping to see pretty things I can share with you all tomorrow.

Happy Friday!

Carol's floss tag is so cute, as is the pin pillow.
Hope next week's restaurant experience (food wise) is better for you.

It's good to try new places but disappointing when it doesn't work out. I think when this happens, it's tempting to stick with the places you know you like.

Your ort jar is adorable with the little tag and pillow. I think I like Halloween stitching more than any other kind.

I *finally* pulled out a cross stitch project after many months of no stitching. I hope to start it tonight.

Have a wonderful time at your stitch group.

Those are some great looking threads that go so well with the ornaments.

I stitched the design that is on top of the jar many years ago...lol

Can't wait to see your knitting and stitching update.

Oh the joys of living in a city...when I lived near London we were told that there was a restaurant for every day of the year in central London - so plenty of choice! Now we live in a small town that has only a handful of restaurants. We have frequented each of them several times! :0)

How fun that you have found a new friend that you can hang out with. Love your Halloween ornies.

Chris said...

Sounds like a fun night out. Sorry that your stomach was upset later.
Lovely Halloween pieces.

Sounds like a great night out overall, so that's good!
