Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks
A friend and I spent the day at the outlets in Kittery Maine yesterday (which is why this is late.) It’s an annual trip we take that started long ago with another friend who has since died and that we continue each year in her honor. (I still miss Jackie with a pain that has dulled but has never gone away.)
I don’t see my friend often (even though we live close) but we’ve got kids the same ages and have known each other for years. We’re both busy, busy people. Often we make plans to get together, but then a child gets sick, an unexpected championship trip must be attended, or life just gets in the way. Even still, we have the kind of friendship where we simply pick up where we left off. You know, that really good friend, kind of friendship.
We laughed, we talked, we ate good food (fish taco and Kale/white bean/sausage soup) and we bought supplies for our households (I always need to restock glasses and plates that have slowly disappeared throughout the year.)
We ended the day, saying how much we enjoyed the time together and that we really should do this more than once a year. Then she went to her house to drive her daughter to gymnastics class and I went home to make the dinner that no one had started.
Happy Easter from my flock to yours. Enjoy the peace and the hope of renewal that the season brings.
Be safe and see you all next week.
