A Small Informal ActiveRain Meetup

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

It's been awhile since I've had lunch with my friend, and fellow ActiveRain blogger,  Elizabeth Weintraub. When she called about a month ago and said, "If we don't put it on the calendar, it'll never get done," so we calendared it!

Today was a gorgeous day in Old Sacramento. It's blue skies with temps in the high 70s.  


The Firehouse Restaurant is always a charming venue for a special lunch.  So, that's where we headed.  

The food was amazing, especially the sweet cakelet dessert with creme, topped with an out of this world caramel sauce.

Pictured below (1) A scene of the Old School House in Old Sacramento. (2) A picture of Elizabeth and I snapped by the gentleman who waited our table, and (3) A photo of Elizabeth holding a blossom.  We are hoping that Roy Kelley will be able to identify it for us!

Roy Kelley - I'm sitting here smiling at your comment, "That MAY be a chrysanthemum."  I assured Elizabeth you would be able to identify it lock, stock and barrel, including providing the name in English and Latin!

I don't think I was wrong when I called it an aster. Aren't all mums part of the aster family? Roy Kelley would know. You are right about that, Myrl. And it was a lovely lunch yesterday, enjoyed it immensely, even if we did make a mess with the cracked pepper. I think our waiter has a crush on you, Myrl.

Myrl, Thanks for your comment on my Yoga post. No worries about getting all twisted up trying Yoga. There are numerous beginner poses and many are geared to improve balance.
