But a lovely day with an old friend. My friend Gail came up from New Jersey today with her husband and we had breakfast at Panera and we watched curling as her son was competing in a curling competition in a nearby town which was the fortuitous reason for her visit. It is so funny Gail is one of my greatest old friends and my son was a toddler last time we had face time, but it's funny about great old friends you cannot see them for generations and when you do you remember exactly why they are so special to you. We went through so much in our crazy early twenties. And now we can talk about our sons and sit and chat about politics and everything else and never miss a beat. Her husband is wonderful too. Very self aware and spiritual. What a wonderful day and I didn't want to let it pass without comment. Off to watch the Oscars and embroider some.
