Girls Day Out

"There is no wilderness like a life
without friends.
Friendship multiplies blessings
and minimizes misfortunes.
It is a unique remedy against adversity,
and it soothes the soul."
- Beltasar Gracian

My friend and fellow artist, Bernie Berlin, rolled in from Tennessee yesterday after delivering a precious cargo of dogs to Chicago. I hadn't seen Bernie in ages, so I was excited to get together with her, Kim, and Debbie for the afternoon. We planned to meet at a Cafe in Mequon at 12:30 p.m. Kim, Debbie, and I arrived there a little early. Bernie, on the other hand, got there a little late. But anyone who knows Bernie, knows that she has the best intentions of getting there on time... she just gets a little sidetracked!

But we didn't have to wait too long before she showed up. It was sooo much fun catching up with her! That girl always has a million different things going on in her life - I don't know how she does it! We did a lot of laughing, and never ran out of things to talk about.

When we left the cafe, we went to some nice shoppes and looked around. - And I thought I used to be a shopaholic... Geez, Bernie's got me beat! She did some real power-shopping and got a lot her Christmas gifts bought. And I'm proud to say I got a little Christmas shopping out of the way, myself.

But finally, it was time to say our goodbyes and head for home. I love getting together with the girls, and look forward to the next time Bernie comes to town.
