I managed to find two designer tops at one boutique -- by a designer I've enjoyed for some time -- for 75 percent off retail. With retail being $300 each, that's one nice chunk of savings. It's nice to splurge once in a while when you get the chance.
On Friday we opted for a nice dinner. I got to choose where. I "found" a nice French bistro. And what a find it was -- it was fourth on the list of top ten restaurants in the city, and I agree. Exquisite food, right down to the cocktails. Pricey, but a nice treat to be able to get in. Others on that same top-ten list have up to a year-long waiting list. We got in the same day.
Yesterday we bid goodbye to our girl and went about our puttering. I ran off to Kmart for clothes hangers (they have my favorites), then off to the mall to look for a jacket I'd seen in a magazine. LL Bean - a Donegal tweed blazer with a lovely loden plaid. Good luck finding it. Apparently, it was in two magazines at the same time. The clerk in the store said it had been hanging on the racks for ages and barely moved until those two issues came out simultaneously. Luckily, she was persistent. We found one in a store in some place I'd never heard of. It will be here this week.
In the afternoon, we went over to Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge Park for Evensong. Absolutely beautiful -- the candles on the ends of the pews were lit, the choir was joined by a choir from a neighboring church, and the music was divine (no pun intended). We left humming and singing. Then he said "Let's go to Molly's." Off to our favorite Irish haunt for some more great music and some dinner. I had to split my attention between the music and the football game, but it was a great time per usual.
Today I have three phone calls and one project to get going. Plus I have to get a few more interviews scheduled for my article. I love that it has a long deadline, but I'm not going to sit idle. Holidays are coming and that usually means no one is in to be interviewed. Best get that sorted now.
How was your weekend?
