Some how, some way or another Lent has snuck up on me. For the last handful of years, I haven’t given up anything. I want to keep my vices, thank you very much.
But I think now’s as good a time as any to make a change. And since it takes about 3 weeks to 3 months (depending on who’s talking) to make something a habit, I decided to try something new.
Given the flagging/faltering/just plain crap economy, I decided for the next 40 days, my husband and I will take a break from national chain restaurants. We’ll still go on our weekly date away from the kids meal, but in the interest of helping out some local chefs, we’ll embark on a culinary adventure and maybe, just maybe find a few new favorites.
Now, I just have to tell the hubby.
Picnics are good. Specially when it’s in a secluded place with a blanket.
I like the picnic idea, but there’s not much seclusion in the desert unless you hike pretty far and then there’s always folks out at this time of year.
A small pop up tent would provide privacy when needed.
And that won’t be obvious at all:-)
Well, it won’t be much of date if you don’t tell your hubby…
I knew there was a downside:-)
