Late Friday afternoon I received a text from one of my favorite peeps that a friend in our group of friends was graduating at 7pm, did I want to go be in his cheering crowd. Are you kidding me? Yes, we'll be there. When they started playing the recording of Pomp & Circumstance, this girl wept. See all those caps & gowns? Those are people who completed their GEDs. Our friend is 30 years and I couldn't be any more proud of him completing his GED than I was when my son graduated from college. It's a big deal! And, I'm so glad I got to be a part of the cheer squad when he walked up to get his diploma. Of note, he was the first in line. LOVE THAT!
On Friday I also received an invitation by text from another friend for dinner at her house and then a movie. Are you kidding me? Yes, we'll be there. After a yummy home-cooked meal and a tour of her back yard to see, among other things, her beautiful cherry tree, we zipped over to the theater to see the new "Star Trek" movie. I'm not a trekkie but LOVED LOVED LOVED this movie. A must see for everyone.
And then, I was poking around in my container garden yesterday and nearly screamed when I saw this pepper. I swear it was not there the day before. How does that happen? So exciting. I don't have baby tomatoes just yet but lots of blooms.
It was a great weekend and I feel like I got to do a lot of things on the fly.
Remember: it's good to make plans but don't plan the outcome. I had no plans on Friday morning for my weekend but by just saying YES twice, it made for a great time and I can hardly wait for the next weekend.
