Today is Sunday and so I will be heading off to church. I am on today....that means I will be interpreting (for the deaf) the music and announcements. Worshiping in sign is very special but the most special of all is seeing a deaf person who can not be motivated by the music worship his or her God.

After church we always go out for Mexican food, hhhhmmmmm I swear I would die if I did not get to eat Mexican food. When my hubby, who I will refer to as B for typing ease, and I travel sometimes we can't get Mexican food like when we were in Portugal and I missed it terribly. When I was a young girl my Mom would mail a pound of pinto beans to her brother in Montana....no Mexican food in the area they are from so now I understand why.

It is not unusual for B and I to go out to eat...in fact we eat out everyday. I know that may seem weird to some but for us it has become a way of life. Not very healthy maybe and more expensive than needed for just eating but you see....for us it is a happening. If we stay home then we just do the mundane like watch TV and of course you feel obligated to answer the phone and then the dogs are hoping for a bite and the bird is hollaring.....HELLO..........etc.

Going out, we focus on each other and watch people and enjoy our servers, many who have become friends....more on that later and we can be good and share a meal together if we can agree on what we want or we can each choose whatever suits our taste for the evening. The problem? Even though we live in a city we run out of new places to go and tend to go the the same ones over and over. I am always searching for a new restaurant that is close to home to try. Wished we lived in New York City on that basis....so many restaurants!! One of the reasons I love this blog New York Daily Photo.

There is a club we go to and have gone to for over 15 years now. It is a country club and sits on a golf course with a pond. I do not golf but I love that pond! It is our favorite place of all and right now it is going down the tubes....why? Pride....the owner/manager has a drinking problem and fired the popular music group that had been there for over 5 years, so now people are not coming. They keep bringing in new musicians but they are second rate overall and just don't fill the bill. The original group is still available and with an apology and maybe a deserved raise they might come back but you know there is that PRIDE. It is so sad to me and truthfully if I had any experience running a restaurant I would try to buy it. Yes, you are right, I need a restaurant like I need a whole in my head but this is such a special place and so many people will miss it if or when it is gone. I find myself thinking...if I were just younger, I would buy that restaurant and make it even better, I would do......................
Do you ever do that? Have these little conversations with yourself? I sure hope it isn't just me.

I love this blog, Changes! I'm glad to get to know you a bit better.

I'm not sure why I started blogging, mostly because friends urged me to, I guess, but now I'm hooked on the communication between bloggers..the words..the thoughts..the actions..the experiences...

I love that you are able to interpret for the deaf and that you do so in your church, and that you love Mexican food as much as I do:)
