December 1, 2008


Last week it rained for two days straight. We had the wettest Thanksgiving Day on record. It was very dreary, and a bit chilly. It was nice to see the sun again on Friday. By Sunday, temperatures warmed up, our high was 71. Not bad for November 30. The 70's hang around through tomorrow. I told Frank the lingering warmth is a birthday gift from Mother Nature. I met him on my lunch break, he loved cruising with the windows down, wearing shorts, and sandals. It's the warmest birthday he's ever had. He's 29 today, hard to believe since it seems like yesterday he turned 18. Time sure does fly.

To celebrate we had dinner at Stratta inside Wynn, last night. We ate there twice before during restaurant week, but this was our first time ordering off the menu. We started with bread and pesto, followed by fried artichokes. Yum! Frank ordered veal parmesan with pasta and a side of asparagus. I had seared scallops and a side of broccolini. Both were great! They have the best desserts in town, so we couldn't resist. Frank got tiramisu and a cappuccino, they had a birthday candle for him to blow out. I had chocolate toffee cake. Heavenly! After dinner he gambled a bit since he had free play at Wynn. No wins, though.
