Something New!

Like most people, I tend to allow my life to get in a rut sometimes. We all do it. We go to the same stores and restaurants. Visit the same coffee shop at the same time each week. It's easy to do because we're all so busy and our lives so scheduled.

Part of my new pact with myself is to shake things up a bit.

Today hubby and I went to a new restaurant. The shameful thing is that we've had gift certificates for this place for almost a year. They were given to us by a friend for our anniversary last August, and have been languishing in my purse ever since.

The restaurant was small and privately owned...no big chain restaurant. Some of the walls were stone as the building is old. The atmosphere intimate, but fun and lively. The food--vegetarian fare--was delicious.

We had a wonderful time. And even better was the fact that it cost us the price of a tip. We'll probably go back again sometime in the future.

What have you done new lately?

Well, I can't say i have done anything new lately. But, you have inspired me to start writing again. I've been working on a new story. It's almost finished. In fact, it practically has written itself. It wouldn't leave me alone till I told it.

That's wonderful, Kathy. It's wonderful when a story comes easily.

LOL You've had the opposite lately, Charli. All new.

Life cycles like that. I figure I'm due for another big change soon. *g*
