Girls Weekend 2010
During those six years a parent has died, daughters have married, and husbands retired. There have been two trips to Europe and one stroke. We get together and catch up on the latest news. We laugh over how forgetful we're getting. We look at pictures and gab about the extended families.
For the last two years, B has invited us to her lake condo. The view of the lake is beautiful. There is great shopping a few miles away.
So the weekend goes like this: meet, drive, talk, arrive, drink wine, talk, eat, talk, drink wine, sleep, talk, drink coffee, eat, talk, shop, shop, shop, talk, talk, talk, drink wine, eat, drink wine.... I imagine you're catching on!
The older we get, the funnier everything gets. This year we were talking about taking Ginko Biloba to aide our failing memories. However, there is fear that we will forget to take it. I've had a stroke; I'm not sure what their excuse is!
Some of my favorite moments are spent enjoying the autumn view of the lake: sunrise, fishermen, and the lights across the lake in the evening.
