Well, it was more like a Gabfest. And, tons of fun!
Yesterday, me and two AR cooks met, in person, for the first time. In a small, bustling coffee house near our State’s Capital, in they walked. I knew who they were immediately and they knew
who I was. We hugged, got coffeed up and the gabbing ensued….. non-stop for 2 ½ hours! What fun we had!
We talked and talked and talked. About family, children, careers, music, cooking, ball games, things we have in common, Thanksgiving traditions, Christmas parties, sushi, cupcakes, Gang-Up Challenges, and
the great and diverse people on AR. Oh, and then we talked and talked and talked some more. We laughed and giggled and talked some more.
Both of us brought our cameras. I unabashedly spoke up to say that I had and would like to take a picture. My new AR buddy jumped in with “I did too. Let’s take pictures.” So, the picture taking started. Isn’t
her daughter beautiful? Plain to see who she gets her good looks from.
I had the bestest time with these two and can’t wait to hook up again. They are both coming to my next Sushi Class. Just as I had suspected, people who cook are “Good People.” I’m grateful for having made
two new friends yesterday. It would be wonderful if us NW Cooks could put a regional ‘Round Up’ together sometime so we could all meet in person.
Alas! As the morning turned into the afternoon, we each had to leave and tend to our respective errands. We hugged twice more and hesitantly parted with promises of staying in touch. Lunch at Kyo’s??? Until
next time …….
