#MicroblogMondays: Emerging from hibernation

Last Wednesday morning, a friend/retired coworker called & asked if I'd like to meet for tea that afternoon. I happily accepted, and we had a lovely visit over tea & scones at a local tearoom. :)

I had barely hung up the phone before it rang again. A high school friend was in town (downtown Toronto, more specifically), accompanying her husband on a business trip, and wanted to know if I could meet her for lunch. She was only in town until Thursday, so I had to decline, but we had a nice chat, catching up.

I couldn't meet her for lunch Thursday, because I already had plans to meet another old friend at a gigantic springtime craft show that we have often attended together in the past. We spent two hours wandering the aisles and another two hours having lunch, then tea, and (of course) talking. :)

It never rains but it pours, right? I spent a very long, cold winter cooped up in the house and, yes, sometimes bored out of my skull -- and now, suddenly, everyone is coming out of the woodwork all at once (emerging from hibernation?). 

Spring MUST be on its way! :)

  1. Definitely true. Glad tea was lovely and can't wait to hear about the craft show!

  2. You must be right. I was able to see a friend this week that lives out of state. It was fun to see her again.

  3. It's like you're all flowers pushing up out of the earth. Enjoy soaking in the social time.

  4. How nice to go out for tea. I can imagine that, with the winters you have, spring feels as if you've been released from prison!

  5. That sounds so nice to have a crop of social teas after such an awful winter. Spring sounds so encouraging!
