"Happy Happy Joy Joy"

Yes, it's that time of the year for me again. I'm as they say one year older and wiser.

Did you notice the candle is a little askew? I guess that gives you a little insight into my personality. Yea,I'm just a little off center.This was the grand finale to an excellent meal at Petit Robert Bistro .This was a peach cake topped with a homemade raspberry sorbet.Very yummy!
It all started with an unusual drink called Mon Petit Miel (my little honey)and although it sounds like it would be something sweet, it contains grapefruit juice putting it more in the refreshing and thirst quenching category.This was all part daughter Sarah's planned day for me,and when we are together we are always open to having something we have never tried before.If you think you'd like to try this honey and lavender rimmed drink she has posted the recipe here .

This was our oh sooo french waiter who had the ability to smile like that at all times.We originally ordered the macarons for dessert and we had to laugh when he reported to us that they didn't look very pretty today and perhaps we should order something else? OK!!

A tasty bluefish with a healthy serving of mashed potatoes and vegetables gave us all the energy we needed to make it to our next stop. It's a good thing we had to walk a few blocks to get the blood flowing again.

The grande finale.A well spent evening with the Boston Ballet where we saw 3 of George Balanchine's works, all different styles yet all having his distinctive signature on them. Of course you know "no photos allowed "so the best I could do was to take a photo of a billboard outside "The Opera House".

After an adventurous return on the MBTA's Orange Line(there's always a story on the orange line)I arrived home exhausted ,but,excited to have made so many new memory cells.
