Hometown Nomad: Shogun Steak & Sushi (Restaurant Review)

Last week, I took a chance on trying a different sushi restaurant.  We arrived early afternoon and were seated immediately. The restaurant is located in the midst of a conglomerate of strip malls. It has the feel of the type of place where you run in for a quick lunch or takeout.

We ordered California Rolls, Sunshine Rolls, and Shrimp Tempura. A water and an iced tea.

My iced tea tasted watered down yet still quenched my thirst on a hot day.  I was still optimistic that the remainder of the meal would still be good.

The server brought our rolls and I noticed that they did not appear to be rolled very tightly. It almost looked like they were haphazardly placed on the plate. My dining companion and I exchanged a worried look but, began eating anyway.

Thankfully, the rolls tasted delicious. The ingredients were fresh. More than likely, I will wait a few months before going back to this restaurant. Also, I am well aware that sometimes the Saturday lunch shift can be harrowing for a first time dining experience.

My next visit to this restaurant will occur on a Friday or Saturday night.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
