But no matter what, the bonds formed by women are important. I was reminded of that this weekend.
Friday night I attended a Women's Dinner Club. As I told you before the guest list was a secret. It was a little like Christmas morning, as each time the door opened we anxiously awaited to see who was on the other side. Each one was a new gift.
It ended up that everyone knew at least 2 - 4 people out of the 16 invited. It was certainly an interesting collection of women - all different ages, backgrounds, and experiences. It is going to be a great journey getting to know more about each of these women as the winter progresses. In attendance were 2 gals I went to high school with and hadn't seen for many years. It was so fun to reconnect with them.
And the food. . . . . . outstanding ! But then again, anytime a man cooks and serves a group of women - its going to be a treat. (hehehe) I am very much looking forward to our next gathering in December.
The remainder of the weekend was equally enjoyable. Saturday morning there were a few craft shows around. I shopped a bit and got a few little bits and bobs and also got a few new craft ideas. Now if I could only find the time to try and make them.
Next stop was to the International Food Fair that was being held in my Church. There were 12 different countries represented with food. And it was (conveniently) lunch time as I ventured in. I sampled some tasty treats from El Salvador, Cuba, France, China, the Congo, Vietnam, Lebanon, Thailand . . . . . I can't remember the others. Well I tried all 12 samples. I hear they are planning to expand it for next year. I will be there - for sure.
I'm glad I wasn't counting calories this weekend - but I certainly enjoyed myself. If its been awhile since you got together with your gal pals - - - pick up the phone and make the arrangements. You won't regret it.
