Time is Flying By Again

We had a great dinner Monday night at Terry & Carol's. Everyone brought something so it wasn't a burden on any one person except for Carol who set the beautiful table. Ann had stopped by our house for a visit a couple hours before we left so the day worked out all right.

Tuesday was my first appearance at Continental Breakfast Club. This is a new drop-in group for Newcomers. Different ladies open their homes for coffee and pastries once a month. It is a great way for new ladies to come and meet people. There are no obligations and you can stay as long or short a time as you would like. I'm supposedly one of the activity chairs in charge of this but I haven't been around for any of the meetings and Ann has been running it on her own. I should be able to make May before we head out for the summer.

Ted was in charge of the neighborhood men's luncheon selection on Wednesday and he chose Guadalajara Mexican restaurant. It's really hard to find something besides Mexican or BBQ unless it's a chain. Everyone enjoyed it and I think it's great that the guys all get together once a month.

We were invited to a French wine tasting Thursday night at the country club. We met Terry & Carol's new neighbors who moved in across the street from them. Ironically they are also from Zionsville, IN. Small world. The wines and appetizer presentations were all excellent and it was an enjoyable evening. I saw a few people I hadn't seen in awhile and that's always fun.

Tonight we went to Mel's in Tomball for dinner with Gail & Wilson and Gloria & Al, neighbors of ours. The place was packed because it is Friday and they had their All You Can Eat Catfish and Shrimp dinner on all day instead of just at dinner because it is Good Friday. We had to wait about a half hour for a table but the food came out quickly. Afterwards they came back to our house and we visited for a few hours.

Tomorrow I will be getting ready for Easter breakfast here after Mass on Sunday. Just Terry & Carol are coming but then we are going downtown to the Hobby Center to see The Wizard of Oz live on stage and will have dinner at Birroperriti's close to the theater. Our neighbor Gracie gave us the tickets along with a parking pass and four drink coupons. What a wonderful gesture. The tickets are part of their theater series but because it is Easter they couldn't use them. It worked perfect for the four of us since none of our kids are coming in.

Happy Easter to all. May the promise of the risen Christ touch your life this season.
