It is so good to be back sharing my weekend happenings with Carissa on Miscellany Monday.
Our weekend happenings actually began on Thursday when friends from Bastrop called to say they were coming to town and wanted to visit. We could not have been more thrilled. We met them at Superior Steak House for lunch.
I had the highly recommended meatloaf on mashed potatoes and one HUGE carrot. It was delicious and worth repeating.
Afterward, Tommy and Lea came home with us while Charles and Jerry had a business meeting, but we just had to do a tiny bit of shopping on the way at Corner Collections.
Lea found some bright, colorful items to hang on her outdoor patio wall. They are as happy and colorful as she is! She is probably showing them off herself today at CiCi's Corner.
We enjoyed visiting and catching up on the years since our last visit which was much too long ago.
This spontaneous visit with long-time friends was so much fun, one has to wonder why we wait so long between visits. We vow to not let that happen again, and yet we know it probably will. Life is busy and we all go in different directions, but it is such a blessing to know that when we do make time to renew old friendships, there is nothing more rewarding.
Even the Hubbies enjoyed the visit.
We belatedly celebrated my precious and "oldest" friend's 70th birthday. I know, who would ever know!
Judy and I have been friends since we were preschoolers and reunited as adults 10 years ago. It has been the sweetest friendship and one for which I am so grateful.
I prepared a delicious dinner for the four of us after which we enjoyed a game of Mexican Train. We are really the Party Hardy Bunch!
Happy Birthday Judy!
I went to my monthly Sunday School Class Ladies Luncheon which is always held at the
Last year, I featured this wonderful place and it's owner, my friend Sharon here.
Our dining table. Isn't it just lovely?
I love the Victorian Soup, which is asparagus and other goodies, so I rarely change my order.
But, among the other things ordered was this beautiful tray of Tea Sandwiches. And, oh the deserts!
I love the Glenwood Tea Room!
That evening, we met another group of friends for dinner at Monjuni's Italian Restaurant
prior to going to the Emmett Hook Theater for a production of
We undoubted have some of the most amazingly talented people here in Shreveport. The production was superb. Good friends of ours, Horace English and Barry LeBlanc played their parts as Javert and Jean Valjean respectively, equal to any Broadway production you could see.
After Sunday School and Worship, Hubby and I took a new friend to lunch. She is such a fine lady and one we really wanted to get to know better. We so enjoyed our lunch with Mary today and look forward to doing that again.
It has been a great, busy, friend-filled, long weekend. I am so grateful for friendships!
Now, for the lesson God is teaching me.
"Cast your burden on the Lord (releasing the weight of it) and He will sustain you."
