Today I got to have lunch with a friend. Now this may not sound exciting to some, but this was a great treat indeed. I have known this friend for a while now (her husband is in the Army Band). We see each other at band functions and I always enjoy talking with her, so when she asked if I would like to meet for lunch, of course I accepted. I think I've said before how challenging I find making friends when we move. People skills would not be at the top of the list "Things at Which I Excel". So let's just say I am extremely grateful when people extend an invitation. We discovered many things we have in common. One of which is browsing antique shops, which we did after lunch. Even though I was only away for a couple of hours, the welcome I received from the kids was heartwarming (even if the rest of me is still chilly).
