Saturday November 28, 2009-Out for Dinner

It's been cold and windy all day today but we did have sun for a change. The wind was strong enough that it reminded me of my morning walks in Texas.

I spent most of the day on the couch reading. I did get some of Nancy's Christmas decorations out but we didn't do anything with them yet.

Nancy is having a couple of girlfriends over tonight and they're bringing dinner. Unfortunately neither of us can eat it so it's regular fare for us! So since we found out there was at least one smoker in the company (Nancy goes outside to smoke), we decided to go out for dinner since both of us can't tolerate cigarette smoke.

We wound up going to the Bella Vista (the restaurant we had planned to go to on our anniversary). Gordon says their gluten free pizza is the best. I had scallops with rice (wasn't much on the menu that I could eat) and the scallops were very dry. It came with Greek salad so after picking out tomatoes and feta cheese, I had lettuce and black olives but it was ok. I'm getting used to it!

After dinner we stopped at a Mall that we don't get to very often but I guess it's not close enough to Christmas yet as it was closed so we drove to downtown Ottawa and then into the market area coming home via the Ottawa River Parkway and stopping at the Walmart in Kanata for something to clear the smoke. I have to say it doesn't do a very good job.

I can remember when cigarette smoke didn't bother me and when we came to Nancy's I wasn't aware that it did, it's been so long since we've been around smokers indoors. It makes it hard to breathe and makes me extremely nauseated and Gordon's been coughing quite a bit.

Since it's open here at the house from upstairs to downstairs we had the bathroom and bedroom closed off so just went to bed when we got home, consequently no blog got posted last night, so here it is!

  1. I sure understand the smoking. We aren't around it either and when we are we both start coughing. I hope it didn't last long for you.
