Marcia and I had a really nice get together today...we left early for the Villages...walked around the shops (nope, we didn't buy anything at all!!) then stopped for lunch at RJ Gators at Sumter Landing at the Villages.
We were sitting outside and this was our view! Beautiful afternoon and a great lunch! I had a blackened Mai Mai with melted cheese, tomato and onion on grilled rye bread...really good! And they have 2-4-1 drinks...we'll remember that if there's a 'next time' as we both only had one glass of wine. We needed a DD to have any more than that!
We did do a little more walking because I wanted a Starbucks coffee...so I looked up the closest Starbucks on their app, which was .1 mile away...ya! Well, because I took off in the wrong direction, it was a little over .1 mile!! But that's ok...we ate all our fries so we needed to walk! We're hoping to meet up with both Gary and Marcia for dinner either Tuesday or Wednesday. Looking forward to that too.
Tuesday will be a library run down and grocery store...then I'll be doing some stamping/stenciling/monoprinting fabric for one of my projects. Hope it goes well!!! If not, there's always another day to play!
