Creative Sisterhood

All six of us were here for Creative Sisterhood, which was nice. It has been rare we've all been able to make it in the last year or so. Seems like people are headed in so many different directions these days.

Teresa, Julie and I talked until about 1 a.m. It was really good to connect with them. We covered a lot of topics we didn't get to during our time as a full group. It used to be common that some of us would stay quite late, but we hadn't done that in awhile. It is always good to be with this group.

Generally, I make some sort of baked goodie, but tonight I just popped a bunch of popcorn and made lemonade. It was nice for a change.

Dorothy and I had lunch at Roy's today. That makes two days in a row for me. I may well make it three days in a row. You can never have too much Roy's - at least that's what I tell myself.

It was good to talk to Dorothy. We're always trying to figure out how to make this a more welcoming community. We go back and forth. I keep thinking if I just ask the RIGHT question I'll figure it all out. It always feels like I'm just one question away. For some reason this has become my mission, to figure out the reasons people here don't connect in the same way as they do where I come from. It's as if this is the lab and I'm trying to figure out the answer to the question. No luck, so far. Dorothy is a trooper, though - she answers questions and I think and then we switch places. Maybe one day... one day... one day the answer will magically appear. If so, I'll be blogging about it ad infinitum.
