I have a good friend. We don't see each other much, but we have a scheduled time each year for catching up.....and working on projects.
We stay in a beautiful cottage and sew up in the loft that over-looks the frozen lake.
Or we sit by the fireplace and enjoy some knitting.
This year we spent more time working on hand-work....which allowed us many hours to "catch up". I am pretty sure we solved most of the world's problems while we were at it. :)
Life is good.
