I have such a good time with those ladies every time we get together though, so it is nice to be there for the same reason they are now! It is so refreshing getting to have coffee with women! I miss having other women around that I can relate to. Lindsay, Eva, Kundi and I make up the resident American women, though Kundi didn’t make it this time. Jenny was a Canadian that came by with yarn as she is starting her own yarn shop in Dubai. It was a really nice time and I always come away feeling so much more positive than when I went in.
Lindsay gave me a ride home after swinging by IKEA and True Value (a place Stu and I MUST head to, only to resist buying everything!). I have to say, there is nothing better than being able to have someone understand the stressors you experience daily. I am missing Rainy, who is STILL in Brazil (!!!) but Lindsay has been a nice replacement while she’s gone. I hope to get together more often with the girls as I know we can definitely all use the camaraderie (Eva??? :)).
Here I am knitting for the first time! Thanks Lulu!
Here are Eva (sitting) and Jenny looking through a book of yarn samples.
And here we're just enjoying some coffee and chatting. Lindsay, me, Lulu, and Sharon.
I mentioned how Stu taught himself to play the harmonica from YouTube videos. Now Kaden thinks this little part of one of his toys is his own harmonica and he goes around with it in his mouth while he blows into it and hums. My little musician in the making!
