Hi! Hope you’re having a nice weekend!
Jeff and I started off the weekend celebrating his birthday. He loves steak so I took him to dinner in Boston at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse located in the Old City Hall. It was a hot summer night, but we chose to eat outdoors on their quiet patio instead of inside the noisy, crowded restaurant. The food was perfection! But when we returned to the car in the parking garage, Jeff noticed that his keys were missing. We carefully retraced all our steps (we went for a long walk in Boston because we were early for our reservation), but we couldn’t find the keys. (I was wearing shoes that were not meant for two long walks!) We went back to the car, and Jeff noticed the keys on the floor locked inside the car. It took AAA about an hour to come, but the guy was able to break into the car so we could get the keys. A little too much drama, if you know what I mean!
Then we went back to Jeff’s place, and we each had a piece of the birthday cake that I had our friend, Leandro of Leandro’s Bakery in Essex MA make for the occasion. It was delicious and so pretty!
Tonight, we’re going on a cruise of the Gloucester harbor on the Beauport Princess with three other couples. Three of the guys have birthdays a couple of days apart during the last week of August. A nice way to celebrate – on the sea and with a lobster dinner 😀
