Yesterday’s post was a heavy one. It’s hard to know how to follow that. I think for tonight I’m just going to give you a few random thoughts going through my head right now…
Chris took me tonight to this little French restaurant in Old Colorado City. It’s actually an old house that’s been converted into a restaurant. But it still looks very much like a house. The ambiance was great – very warm with a muted elegance. And the food was fantastic! I’d recommend it to anyone in the Colorado Springs area looking for a nice place for a date.
Tomorrow is the Superbowl. I don’t really care about either team, but for Chris’ sake I’ll root for the Steelers. I always enjoy watching the game … well, actually what I enjoy is watching all the extra stuff like the Star Spangled Banner, the commercials and the halftime show. What? You never know when the next wardrobe malfunction may occur.
My sister Sara gets married four weeks from today. We’re going to New York for her wedding. It will be a blast, I’m sure! (Upstate New York in February? Definitely a blast of arctic wind.) Anyway, I’m excited for her wedding. It’s been fun to watch how God worked in her life to bring her to this point. It’s still hard to imagine my little Sara a married woman.
Well, that’s all for tonight. It’s late, my belly’s full of French food, my eyes are heavy and my bed is calling my name.
I’ll definitely go try La Petite Maison–thanks for the tip!
I agree — yesterday’s post was heavy, but at least it ended in a positive way for all three children. This post reminds me of the time Paul took me to a French restaurant before we were married. When the bill came, he gave them four twenty-dollar bills (a lot of money, especially in the 70’s). I teased him and said, “I hope you get some change back!” Well, that is about all he got back — change. We didn’t compare notes until a few years later, but we found out that he had a menu with the prices on it, and I had one with no prices shown. And — you guessed it– I ordered the most expensive thing on the menu! I’m surprised he chose to marry me at all, especially after teasing him that way about the bill. Duhhh…
