Yesterday was a fun day. I met up with the "special ed ladies" at one of their houses. Our hostess made Italian Wedding Soup and Split Pea Soup (I skipped that one...not a fan of the pea!). We all brought something. The plan was to get together and eat lunch, and we all brought a project or a book. That last part was a waste, because all we did was talk! From 11:00 to 3:00, that's pretty much all we did.
Our hostess has a very nice screened in back porch, so we ate there, listening to the birds and the occasional bark from a neighbor's dog. We talked about our families, things in the news, and (of course) school. It was such a good time!
This was the biggest hit:
One of the ladies brought a quilt she is working on:
The hostess lives on the "Curves" side of town, so after I left her house I went Curving. We're talking full-blown Curving! The only thing I went easy on was the 2 machines that involve the twisting of the back. I definitely don't want a repeat of the sciatica bout!
It felt really great to be able to sit down with friends for a nice outdoor lunch and not have to worry about rushing off to get my next group of students! Don't you just love summer?
