My best friend came over tonight. We had veggie sandwiches on homemade bread with corn on the cob. It took twice as long to eat dinner as it usually does, because we were laughing and chattering so much.
She hadn’t seen the stash in a while, so I acquainted her with some of my recent purchases. Have you ever fallen in love with a yarn all over again just from showing it to someone? It reminded me of why I’d bought it in the first place, of how soft it was and how the color just called to me.
But the best part was just having time with my friend. We haven’t seen nearly as much of each other lately as we’d like. We’ve talked on the phone or stopped by each other’s work, but tonight was the first time in a long time we’ve been together when one of us wasn’t working. It was so good to get together and just hang out. To look into her eyes and see her laugh.
It’s easy for me to get stuck inside of my head, and she’s got this ability to get me to come out of it, to stop taking myself so seriously and just live right now. She helps me remember who I am and who I want to be.
