Here in California, we often forget to slow down and actually spend time with our friends. On Saturday morning my husband and I spent about two hours at Starbucks visiting with another couple. They brought their new puppy. He's about six months old and they've had him since he was six weeks old. I didn't know that because we haven't spent much time with them since before Christmas. It was wonderful reconnecting with them and hearing what each of their three adult children are up to.
After that we dropped by another couple's house. They were having a garage sale so we spent about an hour visiting with them--in their garage, of course!! It was great catching up with them and two of their four adult children. These friends we do keep in contact with on a weekly basis, but it is always nice to drop in and visit with no reason other than to say "Hi".
Life seems to go at the speed of sound around here. I'm already feeling the pressure of Son and Daughter going to Fresno State at the end of August. And it's just now July. Stop, take a breath and enjoy the Fourth of July!! BBQ, swimming and fireworks!!
