Last night we went to a new tapas restaurant. The food was amazingly. The server attentive. When the wine we ordered was unavailable we were offered a higher priced similar wine for the other price.

The best and worst experience. We went to dinner at a near by Italian restaurant, that has been highly recommended...we received our drinks, had our order taken, received salads...then were forgotten. Until a person, not our waiter stopped by to see if we'd enjoyed our meal and saved room for desert. We point d out politely that we'd never received our meal. So 3 1/2 hours after arriving we finally left. We did get food, no apology from management or even our waiter. No comp like a drink or dessert. And the food was only ok. We won't go back. Yet I imagine it will be successful in spite of itself.

This was one of those projects where the pattern is good and the finish sweater is nice but the knitting was painful. If I make this pattern again I will make a smaller neckline. It's a bit too wide for my taste, but Frogging and re-knitting is out of the question.

For most of my life I only had hand mixers, and not great ones at that. Finally I splurged on a kitchen aid. Love it. Now after 5 years in Florida I decided it would be nice to have one here. Target online came through with early sale, plus my red card discount, plus a discount from all the med's I've filled lately. So it was about as good a deal as I would ever find. Only problem is its "professional ". So bigger then I expected. Not sure where I will store it. And I certainly need to start putting it to work.
