It looks like I should begin a countdown... This is post #198. I haven't really been keeping track, but #200 should warrant a celebration of some sort. Perhaps Max and I can go to the lake, feed some ducks and I'll declare, "Happy 200th post!" to all the ducks who reside in Sunny. Or if it's raining (as it is today) I suppose I could go down to the local cupcake bakery and ask for a red velvet with extra sprinkles. They probably don't personalize them with sayings. I will be sure to take photos of any celebrations that occur. That's only fair, isn't it!
I'm off to a goodbye celebration for a dear friend today. She's retiring and leaving town all in the same month. (Just writing those words makes me feel horribly old.) She is, however, a gorgeous blond who appears to be about 32. It is hard to say goodbye to good friends. Even if they're going off to a wonderful new life and they're just as happy as can be ~ it still brings a little tear to the eye.
But until the celebration begins this afternoon, Max and I are just puttering. Fridays are so wonderful for that. A little laundry, a little bite of toast with honey, brewing a pot of strong tea, and chatting with a friend or two... Somehow, just somehow, I wonder if our family members in Heaven do the same thing on rainy days.
