Got taken out to lunch yesterday by Michelle and Brian. It was a very pleasant surprise and we tried a fairly new restaurant that I had not been to yet - 'Theann's Greek' it's called. The food is very good. I tried the Dolmathes (stuffed grape leaves) and enjoyed every mouthful. The service is a little slow, but that should improve after they have been in business for awhile.

Worked on my latest small project for a bit at Sisters and am ready to start backstitching on that one and work on Patchwork last night - one colour and the backstitching to do on Square #9. Today is my Oldest UFO day. All this progress is SO encouraging.

When I Was One-and-Twenty

When I was one-and-twenty
I heard a wise man say,
"Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away;
Give pearls away and rubies
But keep your fancy free."
But I was one-and-twenty,
No use to talk to me.

When I was one-and-twenty
I heard him say again,
"The heart out of the bosom
Was never given in vain;
'Tis paid with sighs a plenty
And sold for endless rue."
And I am two-and-twenty
And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

Alfred Edward Housman
1859 - 1936
