Friends and networking
Work was really busy today. We had great sales, and we were sure hopping trying to keep up with the rush! The class produced some really beautiful blocks today and I wished I was sewing with them! After work we had plans to go out to dinner with a couple of my husband's friends. My husband grew up in the same area for about 25 years. He is still really good friends with lots of people that he grew up with ... he is also great about keeping in touch with people. Even before email, he would just pick up the phone and call someone he hadn't talked to in years. I really admire that about him, because I am not like that. So tonight we had dinner with two of his friends that he went to middle and high school with. Isn't that incredible? The funny thing is they were all friends, and now the two of them are dating, and living near each other after being apart for a long time. Isn't life funny? Colleen and Bruce are their names, and Bruce has family that lives here. In fact, most of his family lives here ... so we have now seen them twice in the last year because they come to visit Bruce's family. I believe they all reconnected through Facebook ... modern technology can be an amazing thing! What amazed me about Colleen was we both have the same name, are the same age, love quilts, love coffee, were both legal secretaries. It was really funny our similarities. They are both nice people and it was enjoyable just hanging out and sharing stories. I am looking forward to relaxing tomorrow ... doing some quilting. Starting a new quilt that I will use as a sample for the store, but only for as long as they need it to sell the fabric. I will also be watching the Charger game and hoping they look a lot better than last week! I have a tutorial for binding that I took pictures for yesterday, so I'll post that tomorrow. Now go call or email someone that you haven't talked to in a while and celebrate the beauty of friends!
