Although being summer, I sometimes forget what day of the week it is. Weekends are still most important though, cause that's the days I get to spend with the hubster ~ well normally. I'm actually leaving this afternoon to go over to Tampa. I will meet up with my quilt gals at "Scrap & Sew" for an evening of sewing and chatting. I'm spending the night at MC's and then around 3:00 leaving Tampa for Ocala where I'll meet up with J&J and retrieve my son. He's been having a blast and probably doesn't ever want to come home. He's gone to classes with her in Gainesville, started his own blog, had an interview with one of the professors for his blog, and received an "offer" from the Jaxs Times Union to do something with them next time he is in town. I'm so proud of him but really can't wait to get him back!

Last night Richard, Julz and I went to Fujiyama Japanese Seafood & Steakhouse for dinner. Julianne had gone there last weekend for a birthday party and her talking about it got Richard and I craving it. It's one of the places where the chef cooks your food right at the table all the while tossing knives in the air and setting the cooking surface on fireDSC07036
Richard and I haven't been to one of these type of places since we left Raleigh, NC back in 2002. The food was really good. I had the steak & chicken and Richard had the scallops and shrimp. This way we all got a little of each.
Our chef was very entertaining. He even made a little volcano out of rings of onion (not to be confused with onion rings) DSC07038
Here is is getting ready to flip shrimp pieces into customers mouths DSC07041 and he made it 2 out of 3 times... including the one he threw at Richard.
All in all it was a fun night for us and while Julz is missing her brother, she is loving having us all to herself.

When the chef flipped shrimp pieces into your mouths, weren't they hot? (Didn't they burn your mouth?) I've never been to one of those places, so I don't know how it all works.

Have fun in Tampa! :) I loved it there.

Cool! We have a mushashi's I've only been there once, it's kind of expensive and I always forget about it when we are trying to decide where to go out to eat.
