Some Days

Some days you can sit back and know that something has changed - the course you were on has taken on a different dimension. Okay, so sometimes that is for the better, and sometimes for the worse. Today was one of them for me.

I spent the day with Miss K and her family and other friends. From afar it may not have looked like much - I arrived early and played battleship (lost one game, won one) and chess (lost one, won two), we had a great bbq (thanks Mr T for the cooking and Miss K for the rest), we chatted, the weather was so-so but on the verandah it didn't matter. I even took a couple of photos of real people .... but I respect that there was angst so they won't appear here (Miss K's frangipani had no such problem though lol). Four, five hours passed before I gave in to the need to finish my assignment and headed home.

And in amongst all of that something positive and big happened - I don't know quite what it was but I do know that in time to come I will look back and know that whatever it is all started today on Miss K's verandah.

Yes, some days ... you just gotta dance :-)

awwww....why am I only just reading this now? I so enjoyed our time together...we must not leave it so long between stops, especially now I know it has magical qualities ;)There is something so healing about spending time with friends, that nurturing and kind regard...can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be xo

Sigh ... so we could have a get together to celebrate my return ... or as you have something booked for around then we could just make up random reasons for the one after that - say "It Is The 12th" or "It Is the Third Saturday or the Month" or ... well you get the idea lol
