Friday Fun

I had a great day today. The Bible Study gals (almost all of them)came over to make cards and we had a blast just creating and chatting. Here are a couple pictures from the day...
Afterwards I was really exhausted but we had a yummy dinner, I took a hot bath, and then I curled up on the couch with a nice mug of hot tea and watched one of my favorite movies with Brian, "You've Got Mail." I have two favorite lines from this movie and they both come from Joe Fox played by Tom Hanks. The first is in the very beginning of the movie when Joe and Kathleen are exchanging emails, Joe writes: "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address." I think this appeals to me because of my love of school supplies but it just creates this vivid picture in my mind of long, yellow pencils that are tied together with a beautiful ribbon. The second line that I really really love is at the very end of the movie when Joe and Kathleen have become friends and she is about to go to the park to meet NY152 and he is telling her how he wishes they had met under different circumstances and says, "I would have asked for your phone number and I wouldn't have been able to wait 24 hours before calling and asking, "How about coffee, drinks, dinner, a movie (pauses) for as long as we both shall live?" How sweet is that? It's just so honest, maybe I like it because saying that makes him vulnerable. I imagine him thinking about how hurt he could come out of this situation but he knows that if he doesn't say it he may always wonder, what if??

Big day of art fairing tomorrow. Wish me luck!
