Forehand Friday

My favorite day of the week has been sparkling! It is sunny, bright, and beautiful today! We played tennis this morning and had breakfast outside on the restaurant terrace. The couple we played tennis with forgot their wallets, so my husband treated them to breakfast. I’m sure they would have done the same for us. My husband is at Costco with my brother. My brother has to load up on goodies, since his son, our nephew, is flying in from New York City with his girlfriend for the weekend. I’m doing laundry as usual. And tonight is our Friday date night! We are going to a restaurant my new friend from Saks Fifth Avenue recommended. My husband snagged reservations yesterday. It’s called Gazebo and has French food. I’m so excited! Happy Friday to you all!

@LowRiderX However, today has been insane with constant phone calls, texts, and deliveries. All I want to do is myLot and relax a bit.

You don't know the half of it. Even while answering this, I received my 12th text of the day! That doesn't count the phone, emails, or doorbell ringing. I so need that relaxing dinner out. Ugh! Another text! The restaurant has great reviews. I'm set on loving it! Lol!

Thanks! Gazebo is not a chain restaurant, so that's why you probably never heard of it. lol Yesterday was beyond belief for me, and the weekend is going to be wonderful.

Beautiful shot. Looks kinda choppy, does that mean there's a bit of a wind there? I hope you enjoy your dinner, will you eat escargot?

No wind at all today, but those are just the natural waves. It's a very pleasant 70 degrees today. Thanks, but I stopped eating escargot years ago after seeing the snails in my garden.

That is so kind of your husband to pay for their breakfast! Maybe next time they will offer to pay for yours to return the favor although I am sure that is the last thing you two are worried about. It's always nice to help people when we are able.

Aww, thanks. My husband is very generous and often picks up the tab. However, no way will he to it Sunday night. We are going out to dinner with 5 other people. One of them is the cheapest couple we have ever known. One time, they started off dinner by asking for separate checks, ordered one salad to share, and took the rest home in a doggie bag!!!! If they do that again, my husband should pick up the tab for everyone else. It would kill them!
