Celebratory Dinner

My best friends took me out to dinner to celebrate my finishing Bound By Love - the fact that I was doing the happy dance all over the campsite wasn't enough. So, they took me to one of my all time favorite restaurants, Hearthstone. I absolutely love their soups. I ordered one of their Magical Soups - Orange Ginger Chicken, but they ran out just before she was going to serve us, so I chose Indonesian Carrot Soup. The Indonesian Carrot Soup tasted like curry and ginger. There was a subtle kick to it that started in the back of your mouth and whooshed forward. Oh My God! It was exquisite. I'm not sure how they do it, but magical is a great description. All of their soups are made from scratch. I also had Manicotti, which was fantastic, and bread, but really the soups are great. I also sampled their Cheddar Cheese, which was great.

Bi-Weekly Goals

Goals are one of those things that help some people achieve their dream or get through the to-do list. I like goals - I don't always make them, life occasionally intervenes, and then there is work, and they want you to do their work and not write! But, I like them and I make them. So, in the next two weeks - I have a couple of photo things coming up, so, I get more time - I want to revise BBL and get the time line and details all straightened out and then submit it. And then I want to get 5 pages done on TB-TT. My reward -- hmm -- ooh - homemade chocolate chip - raspberry cookies.
