Why I Love Tuesdays

Tuesdays are one of my two favourite days of the week. I look forward to it all week long.

Why, you ask? This is why.

Every Tuesday is just like this. Honest.

Okay, just kidding. But every Tuesday IS like this:

Every Tuesday, around 3ish, I meet Liz and Paige and Kristianna (or some combination thereof) in Zeste for coffee. Usually a gingerbread latte, or a mocha, or a caramel latte, or a... well, you get the idea. This past week it was a Merry Minty Mocha, and it was delightful! But as lovely as the coffee sometimes is (and sometimes isn't...), it's knowing that at least once a week I get to hang out with friends and feel like a real human person that makes it worth going.

New jacket to keep out the rain and wind and bitter cold in Aberdeen: $170

Flavoured latte: $3.25

Spending and hour or two with good friends once a week: priceless

I have been so lucky to have had this kind of regular fellowship with the other gals here (mainly in Divinty, but we let Paige in anyway). Some years it's been for dinners once a month; other times it's been coffee or lunch-time meetings once a week; yet other times it's been less scheduled while still remaining a common occurance. I honestly don't know what I would have done without these times to laugh, cry, complain, rejoice, be silent, chit-chat, catch up, wind down... or without these wonderful friends to do it with.

To those of you who are no longer around or able to come for our little get-togethers (Carolyn, Carrie, Lo, Laurie, Barb...), know that I miss you! And I'm thankful for the times you were here.

To those of you who are here now? Thanks for making Tuesdays my joint-favourite day of the week. =D

I can't see the video. I wanted to see you elf yourself.

I can't say too much, I get to socialize with a 2 year old and a 6 month old. Talk about great conversations, although today, Machias was quite wonderful being santa, finding reigndeer, and using a towel to deliver christmas animal trains. Priceless.

Hm. I'll repost the vid by itself in a new post. See if that helps... I can see it. I don't know why you can't.

Conversations with the bubbee are great. I miss 'em.
