Now, we are all attempting to recover from our revelry.
The basement was set up and cleaned, a table ready, the freezer available, a fire going in the beast, games, food, music and beverages and guess what we did all night? Sat around the kitchen counter, ate, drank and talked.
What’s the saying? “No matter where I serve my guests, they seem to like my kitchen best”. Yeah, that one. No complaints though. Just an easygoing evening with friends. Since N couldn’t make it, we decided to make a shrine to her and felt we needed to involve her in our merry-making….
That N got around, let me tell you! B had so much fun she left her clothes and some music here. Jenny left a pan, indicating that she’d love to make some more monkey bread in the future. L left COOKIES and I had to leave everyone to go off to a lunch date with a good friend and two Elementary teachers who taught in my elementary school. Much hard thought went into remembering way back for all involved and the teachers were interested in what I’ve done with my life. I answered and we chatted and they came to the consensus that I’ve had a very charmed, interesting and fun life.
As I walked home, I considered that. I reviewed what I’d told them and considered how I’d feel if I’d heard these things and not lived them. Then I said a huge thank you to the powers that be for giving me these experiences.
All of which has left me in a pleasant little fuzzy sleepy lull of a Sunday, part of which I spent sitting in some sunshine and just relaxing while listening to some music.
Thank you, J, B, L and N, my dear friends, I love you all and am so happy to have you in my life.
