Busy Saturday

Today has been super, duper busy!  We started it bright and early, well in the rain, and headed to Kennestone for the "Matters of the Heart" class that we were attending.  It's all about dealing with the emotional side of heart events, and it was really nice to be able to hear from others, and connect with others under the large umbrella of persons who had had a "heart event".  It was a good thing for Mom, and it helped her to get a chance to talk to others.  It was a nice class, and we spent the majority of the time going around the room and talking about what had happened that led them there.  It's humbling and striking - and things like this tend to bring you back to reality.  You really get a chance to realize that everyone in the world is dealing with something.  All in all, it was a good thing indeed!

For lunch, mi madre took Gary and I to this place in Sandy Springs called Nori Nori.  It's this amazing Japanese buffet that features sushi, traditional soups and salads, and the prettiest desserts I've ever seen!  The food was amazing, and it was packed, even for our late lunch!  It was a bit pricey, but completely worth it, and Gary loved it!  It was a perfect place for his birthday meal!

After lunch, we stopped at this road-side stand to grab some fresh veggies and fruits.  There is nothing better, let me tell ya!  The lady running it was super nice, and was willing to offer some suggestions about how to cook the snap peas we bought... those brought back some memories for my mom.  She and her sister used to sit around a bowl stringing and snapping those peas all afternoon from the sound of it.  Sounds like good times to me, and I'm looking forward to doing it!  We also got some sweet corn, some okra, a grapefruit, a champagne mango, some strawberries, and a basket.  Not bad!

And now, we are headed to the drive-in!  We were trying to decided between seeing Harry Potter at the theater, and Bridesmaids at the Fox.  lol.  So we are compromising and seeing Harry Potter at the drive-in with the possiblity of seeing the Green Lantern after!  (Gotta love double-features!)  :)
