Tonight I took my friend K. out for a belated birthday dinner. She called this afternoon to warn me that she woke up feeling grumpy, and asked if we could change our dinner plans. We were originally going to check out a new Vietnamese restaurant, but I agreed that we could go to the local chain diner for something simple.
K. just turned 69, and is my book buddy. This time, I loaned her Barbara Kingsolver's "The Lacuna" and a collection of folktales from the Marshall Islands I just bought but am too busy to delve into right away. I always enjoy listening to her stories -- she's worked in the Peace Corps in Somalia, traveled, and worked as a school counselor.
Happy weekend! Tomorrow I'm off to a wedding. I'm looking forward to dressing up and getting a few good photos to share. :)
