"wooden spoons" ~ Avila Barn
Girlfriends... nine? ten? six? 

Coming... Tuesday ~ after work...

Tonight... making Tortilla Soup + dessert (any suggestions?)

We used to play Bunco... then Apples to Apples... sometimes we go to the movies... or walks along the Bob Jones Trail... or craft...  

This month ~ we'll chat about how we'll spend the upcoming holidays! & select a restaurant for our December dinner! 

The group's been together for 18+ years??

it's sort of like a marriage...

  • we don't always agree, but we're polite when we disagree
  • we comfort each other ~ through divorce, death, illness, loss of work & emotionally difficult times
  • we've all experienced the challenges of watching our parents get sick, ill or frail, with some passing on
  • our kids (the majority are 20's-30's) & grandkids are topics of conversation
  • we've shopped, traveled, dined, attended parties & weddings together
  • we've driven each other crazy (much like siblings)
  • we don't discuss politics, religion or money

I've hosted slumber parties (years ago as a single, empty-nest mom), brunch, dinner(s), movie night(s), a book exchange, & a craft night ~ lots of memories in my dozen years with the group!

So - girlfriends ~ I'll be chopping, whipping, cooking, baking up something tasty to share... 

SEE YOU TUESDAY at 6pm... You can wear your pj's, if you like!
