I had a lovely time last night. After meeting with the creative team for the symphony project, I headed over to my friend Cristy’s house for dinner. We had not seen each other for a long time, and it was our date to catch up. She travels a lot for work and also made a huge trip to Africa over the winter holidays, and I was anxious to hear all the stories. Cristy is a fellow adventure-seeker, so we get along well. In addition to her Africa travels, she spent some time in Amsterdam and Brussels as part of the trip. That girl certainly had some itchy feet!
Imagine my surprise when she greeted me at the door with her new pal, Gail. Gail is a twelve-year old Cairn terrier. She has had quite a few teeth removed and she is almost completely deaf. She is also an angel dog. Cristy adopted her from the shelter and is giving this senior girl a lovely life now. The poor little thing had been in the shelter almost six months before Cristy came along and rescued her. Cristy has one of the biggest hearts in the world, so this didn’t surprise me in the least. It is exactly something she would do.
So I got to meet Gail. I tapped my knees to get her attention, and she immediately rolled over and wanted me to pet her tummy. Ever so tender and sweet. Cristy and Gail make a great team!

We exchanged some gifts and I was delighted to get a Peruvian hat. Cristy picked that up for me on one of her work excursions to South America. It’s too warm to wear it right now, so Buddha is the model.
Fetching and unusual. Love it!
I love connecting with friends. My soul is refreshed. I listen and I am heard. How wonderful is that? Cristy is also on a non-processed food diet, so dinner was amazing and healthy. An added bonus! No-bake chocolate almond cookies sweetened with dates for dessert. They were heavenly!
