–a new set of chairs for my dining room/library table from a freecycle friend. With lower backs and a smaller footprint. They make the room look so much bigger!
–an email from this old friend today. Speaking of his surprise in having stopped by my blog and discovering my Quaker affiliation. He & his wife are Quakers now and he’s the clerk of the Saylesville Meeting–they meet in this simple 300+ year-old Meetinghouse in Rhode Island. What a *thrill* it is to know that David and I are not only friends, but Friends!
–John’s off of work today because of Spring Break. Sitting across the table from each other this morning. Each working on our laptops. Then a nummy sushi lunch together. Playing footsie under the table and nibbling off of each other’s plates.
–Discovering this article about a Chilean dancer in the “New Era” magazine. Mavi was a foreign exchange student in our previous ward. I was her YW leader and she spent many hours hanging out with our family, teaching us how to make empanadas, telling us of her dreams for dancing, and attending the Nauvoo Temple Dedication at our Stake Center together (her first dedication experience). How exciting to know that she’s achieving her dreams!
