Today I Love the company of a friend - Slice of Life 2014 -Day 26

Thanks to the good people at Two Writing Teachers for sponsoring the Slice of Life Story Challenge.  And thanks to my friend, Cathy, who first introduced me to this challenge last year.  Cathy has been such an inspiration to me as a student, as a teacher, as a mom, as a friend.  We graduated college together, went our separate ways as young teachers, wives, mothers, and reconnected through the wonderful world of blogging a little over a year ago.  Today is Day 26 of this second writing challenge and today I enjoyed a nice break in my busy Spring Break week with my friend, Cathy.  Looking forward to more of these days in the future.

 
Vacation?
Nope, not me
Couldn't get away
and truth be told
I shouldn't
Queen of Procrastination 
strikes again
and grades are due soon
Long, dramatic, self-pitying sigh...

But today I took a break
with a friend
chatting
laughing
eating 
 discussing
reminiscing
 learning


slicing aloud
she and I were


(literally and figuratively)
 



Slipped over to the farm market
Moseyed through the aisles
Dinner in our arms 
A pound of this, thin please
A half of that, a little more 

Dreams in our minds
of new recipes to try
of tried and true favorites
for family 
near and far




Signs of spring
everywhere
we look
when we look

Not a beach
nor a mountainside
but a break 
in the busy week
and the company 
of a friend

  1. Trish,
    I so enjoyed catching up with you today. You've described our day perfectly "write" down to the slice. I'm not sure you can have to crown as QUEEN of procrastination as I'm a pretty strong contender, but perhaps. I like to think we're just good prioritizers --- first things first. Of course, time with friends is always first in my book.

    Thanks,
    Cathy
