Friends (and a just a little bit of hockey)
I’m trying to write this post and watch the Leaf/Montreal hockey game at the same time. It isn’t working out well. (The post that is – not the hockey game. The game is tied at 0-0 right now. For a Leaf fan, this is good.)
Anyway, just wanted to say – yet again – how wonderful this world of blogging is. My network of friends is expanding both in the virtual world and the “real” world.
On Monday I met Sherry from Sage and Thyme for coffee. Instant “click.” We chatted for ages. Sherry is as inspiring in person as she is on her blog. Such a lovely lady. Thank you for your words of wisdom, the smiles and the laughter.
(Montreal just scored. Crap.)
Yesterday, I met my buddy Patricia from BookLust for coffee. I think we kept the people around us well entertained. I swear, the two men to my right were listening very carefully to our conversation. Way too much silence at their table.
Patricia had the added bonus of meeting my son Ted. (He works nearby and drove home with me.) They made each other laugh. Big surprise!
(The Leafs just scored! I’m pumped.)
I wish I could meet more of my blogging friends in person, but having cyber friends is such a blessing, too.
(Perhaps it was rude of me to intersperse hockey tidbits with my tales of friendship? I prefer to think of it as multi-tasking.)
P.S. The Leafs lost in overtime. Again.
