et, longtime sporty friend of mine
signed up to do a quick 5k this morning
prior to our bookclub brunch
and was surprised to learn
that she was somehow stuck doing a 5-miler
due to a ‘volunteer miscommunication error’
and toughed it out, arriving on time.
please note the difference in her demeanor, expression, and body language
in the photos
still running and realizing the mileage
arriving at brunch and enjoying a breakfast bud light.
here’s to her mighty spirit.“either you run the day or the day runs you.”
met up with my bookclub
for a late holiday brunch
in one of my favorite places
some of my favorite people
lots of bad gifts
a full morning of laughter.
a couple of people even read the book.
“laughter is an instant vacation.”
la dolce vida
lovely spot tucked away in the city
site of a
(books and drinks and samba society)
women (and a random piñata) of all ages and occupations
talking about books
sharing many laughs
meeting new and interesting people
sharing the piñata head
in what seemed
much too short a time
everyone was off
in different directions
to see flashdance one more time
to watch sports
continued the celebration elsewhere
after this wonderful beginning to the day.
met up with some friends for brunch.
waited a long time and caught up on stories.
looked forward to the mimosas and coffee and delicious savory crepes.
as last, they arrived at our table.
our dessert came.
1 minute later.
ice cream, sweet apple filling oozing, delicately wrapped in brown sugar.
tucked inside of the softest of doughs.
melting onto the plate.
we each had the same reaction at the same time.
threw down the gauntlet.
abandoned our food without a look back.
jumped into dessert.
why we are friends.
we understand each other.
even when no words are spoken.
Absolutely eat dessert first. The thing that you want to do the most, do that. – Joss Whedon
