Sometimes........You Just Have To Go With The Flow

Posted on August 09, 2014 by Karen Schumann | 1 comment

It seems that I took a week off from writing.  I had no intention of doing so, but just have to go with the flow.  It all started last Monday with one glorious, fabulous lunch with my friends.  Monday is my day to cook, to blog, and to get things together for my week, but my friends come to the store most Wednesdays for coffee and pastries so it was time for me to venture out of my world and go out to lunch with them.  What I thought would be a very pleasant and somewhat short outing turned out to be the catalyst for my week of getting nothing done!  And it was a wonderful thing, just what I needed!  We sat outside at a fabulous restaurant,  on a gorgeous day, overlooking the water and kids taking sailing lessons.  We had spectacular drinks, to die for lobster rolls, and yummy desserts.  Our problem, no one wanted to leave!  We just kept sitting, talking, and eating.  It brings a smile to my face even thinking about the moment when we all realized that we didn't want to go home, that we felt like we were away from the world and our lives and we all just laughed!  These are the moments that make me stop, pause, and think about how lucky I am to have these great women in my life!  I know I went home happy, realizing that I could take a day off, actually, it turned out to be a week, but sometimes recognizing a wink by God changes everything.  C'est Ma Vie!

PS  Next time, I'll take pictures!
