Yes! Friday....

Hot drinks, fun atmosphere, interesting company and the chance to get to know each other a bit more...what is better than a coffee date with a friend? Siakayle got a fun design in HER cup...probably because mine is tea and not coffee. 

Stacia got to play with  Siakayle's kids while we enjoyed time together. Stacia and I headed to Freddies to pick up a few things for an event tomorrow. As we were leaving I heard, "Hi, De'Etta."

I automatically replied, "Hi," as I turned to see who it was.

It was Alicia! Alicia was on the International PWOC board when I was a Regional President...we trained women's ministry leaders in Korea and Japan together. Imagine - Korea and now ALASKA! The places we bump into each other. AnyHOW....we're all military retirees now....her husband works right here in our town and they live in the town over.

WE certainly need a coffee date to catch up. If not in January, I will make sure to schedule it in February.

Stacia and I ran by the library, mail box, and Papa Murphy's, before heading home.  Michael and Alex were waiting for the van so they could go to THEIR lunch/Bible study.

I spent an hour or so working on retreat sessions.

We dipped some strawberries for tomorrow, Krista got home from work, Dad came out of his room, the guys all got home...and we had dinner.

BreZaak took the kids with them to Alive Alaska tonight. I love watching the kids, however, I do miss Family Friday nights here at home. This is the first time I've been home with the family in 2 1/2 months on a Friday night.

We lingered over dinner....because we COULD. It was nice not to have a meeting to which we needed to rush off. We played Forbidden Island. Well these 4 played. Dad opted to make phone calls and go to bed. Michael worked on a puzzle; I watched to see how the game is played.  I had chicken in the canner and needed to fill some time. The kids have been watching MacGyver so we watched an episode followed by the movie, "Overcomer."  It was a refreshing night home together after a refreshing day out around the town.
