Friday Five: Time with Friends

4 11 2011

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.

this is lovely and most interesting. I know what you mean about the seniors and their exercise…there used to be a Tai Chi group that met just outside my office window!

I linked to a site you might be interested in today.

It had to do with knitting therapy, tho I’m not sure how your wrists and hands are for knitting these days . . . .
