Sarah of the Pink Shoes

Late yesterday afternoon, my friend Sarah and I met up at Coffee Culture for a long-overdue gabfest.

Sarah and I first got to know each other in August 2008 (can it really be that long ago?!) when she started working at the store. We had a lot of fun working together.

It was Sarah who inspired me to get these shoes (one of my four pairs of Nike Frees)!

…and we had fun being the Bobbsey Twins, wearing them on shift together. (Please don’t say “small things amuse small minds!”).

Whose feet are whose? I forget now!

As always happens when you’re chatting with a friend, our visiting time flew by in a flash, yesterday. It was so good to catch up! Sarah is now a certified teacher, and landed a long-term contract job that began in October of this school year, and will last until the end of the school year, in June. I’m so happy thisĀ all worked out for her!

We intend to get together next month, again. Can’t wait! [Sidenote: Of course, I ordered a coffee at the coffee shop. Guess what? I realized I much prefer Coffee Culture coffee to Starbucks – CC is not so bitter!].

When’s the last time you went out for coffee with a friend? It’s hard, sometimes, to co-ordinate busy schedules, but always so worth it!

teacher sarah! with a hot chocolate!

end of our visit, boo hoo. the time went way too fast!

Before we left, I needed one more snapshot for the records…

no pink shoes for either of us...although we're still sporting our NIKES! (sarah on the L in lunarglides, me on the R in the frees)


Winding this silk yarn has grown extremely tiresome.

skein #2/4 total...not. having. fun. with. this.

I am literally untangling the threads inch by inch, turning this mess into a useable ball of yarn. After finishing this skein (maybe today?), I may take a break and just knit with the two balls I will now have at my disposal…seriously, Dad, watch out…I am so tempted to enlist your help to wind skeins #3 and #4!!

OK, I’m outta here. Thanks to having a day off today, I have a time-intense New Experience I am going to try to accomplish – it may or may not be ready for posting tomorrow, but I’m going for it! It’s definitely a Kiki-Ish Idea (ie. quirky, fun, unique!)!!!
