A Bit Of This and A Bit Of That 6

Yes. Another one. What can I say? Nothing. Just enjoy it.
* Went to lunch with BarbieGirl the other day. Greek! Yummy! I had the chicken souvlki (no tomatoes) and it rocked.
We went to a place called Ambrosia. I had been there before but it was the first time for BarbieGirl.
The food is absolutely wonderful. And when you ask for extra feta you get a crumpled brick of it. More than enough for the whole table. The pita is warm and soft and the chicken was marinated and cooked beautifully.
We sat outside on the patio and ate watched the people go on buy. We then went to a pet store where I felt quilted into buying $7.00 catnip.

* The Queen’s one cat Jasper has taken to visiting on a regular basis. Much to my cats’ dismay. The first time was while I was carrying groceries upstairs. When I was done I went into the living room and there was Jasper just sitting in Mr. Gow’s chair. Looking at me like “Oh. Are you back?”
He has since taken to crying to come up. Yesterday I left the door open a crack so he could go up. And he did. I found him sitting in the (of all places) the bathroom window.
Dragonwyck was very unhappy about the whole thing. She hissed at me all night. The others were more confused than anything.

* I’ve been getting some stuff done. We haven’t fully unpacked and Mr. Gow’s family will be here in 2 weeks. I did manage the bathroom yesterday. We just have to put up the new curtain and lay down the new little rug. Then that will be two rooms done! Yay!
And can I just say WOW to how many half full shampoo, bath gel, lotion bottles I threw out? I can not believe how that gathers up so quickly.
* I finally saw Warehouse 13 the other night. I tried to watch it once but was distracted by people and things. I think I may enjoy this one. It sort of reminds me of Special Unit 2, Sanctuary and the X-Files all rolled up into a new show.
We’ll see how it goes.
Also, Drop Dead Diva was cute. I liked it.

* Then there was the bad news. An acquaintance passed away. I didn’t know him well, but as I wrote to my friend I know how close they were and he was always kind when I saw him. I am sad not only for his family but for my friend as well.
He also never gave me grief about taking his picture. Even though the flash on my camera is brutal.
