Frozen Dinner

It's been a cold week and that's no exagger- ation (not that I was trying...) I'd love to don extra layers and head out for a photo taking excursion, but small children have made that a challenge so I snap a few here and there where I can. Lake Ontario is getting more visible from upstairs every day. This morning, with the sun shining on the frozen shoreline, I could actually get a fairly decent, though distant, shot. Yes, all that white stuff back there is ice and snow over the water.

Yesterday afternoon I was invited out to dinner with two old friends from high school. I don't go out with friends often so you might say I jumped at the chance. We met at a very nice little Chinese restaurant and sat for hours just visiting, and then we decided that next time L. is in town, we should meet at the Rheinblick German Restaurant in Canandaigua. Eventually the Chinese restaurant cleared out and not wanting to cause the owners grief, we decided to call it a night, said our goodbyes, and headed back out into the cold.

  1. Martha, how fun for you to get out of the house and just chat for hours with friends. Does a heart good doesn't it?
    Just got out of the shower...clean body and hair does a heart good too.
    Sending love

    1. Yes, it does. Jo and I have decided we should do this more often. We'll see if it actually happens. :)

  2. Not much is more fun than visiting with girlfriends! And going away on a little holiday with some women is REALLY fun. I have done this on several occasions and truly the laughing and cackling is good for the soul :-)

    1. It's been along time since I did one of those, Marilyn, but you are right. There is nothing better than a night of laughter. Just remembering those times makes me smile. :0)

    1. We're about a mile away from the lake. Keeps us warm, cold, and sometimes snowy.

    1. The picture probably makes it look closer than it is, even if it is walking distance.
      Girlfriend time is a necessity once or twice a year.
