Today’s RevGals’ Friday Five is an easy one: five things you like to do with friends.
*At home in Hamilton: knit, drink tea (or in Beijing, just don’t have a group of knitting, tea-drinking friends yet due to my non-attendance at Stitch n Bitch Beijing! Well, I’ve been twice, and it was fun but sarcoid has complicated my non-essential going out, so solo knitting has been my mainstay. Do miss the Fairly Crafty Sunday morning stitching)
*Out and about in Hamilton: eat great Indian food, dosas especially! (the above photo isn’t super-flattering or even a very good photo but they are super-good friends)
*Out of town friends arriving in Beijing: Temple of Heaven. For the craziness of the park (line-dancing, choirs practicing, chinese opera, karaoke, old people hard core exercising) and the beauty of the buildings.
*Out of town or in town friends in Beijing: a bit of shaved ice magic
*Any friends, anywhere: eat, talk, laugh, talk more – about theology, politics, the state of the world, eat dark chocolate, drink tea, solve more of the world’s problems….
I am so glad for the friendships that shape my life, sustain my sanity, bring me joy and challenge my thinking.
