On the 16th, I rushed around the office making ready for my employer to leave the country for a week. I’m fortunate, in this economy, to still have an employer. But what I’m grateful for is that I have an employer who I genuinely like and enjoy spending a third of my life with.
On the 17th, I had brunch with my three brunchistas, and we laughed and hooted and hollered and carried on for a few hours, like we always do, and then we all toddled off to continue our Saturdays.
The rest of my Saturday involved going out to the Elks Lodge in Tucker and seeing my most fabulous friend, Moxie Anne Magnus.
In the grand scheme of things, my brunchistas are new friends, because Ms. Magnus and I have been friends since we were in elementary school. I am thankful to have both kinds of friends.
On the 18th, Brantley and I had brunch and went to the fabric store, and then I piddled around the house. I’m thankful for time to spend with my friends. Mostly I’m thankful my friends want to spend time with me.
