(grin grin). Spent most of the day looking up recipes for my new passion for cooking,reading,chatting and scheming. I’ve had a good dinner and desert,and the reading continues…the new yorker really makes for great reading! I learnt today that no matter why or how long you are separated from someone,it all seems to work out in the end if you especially cared for each other. I’m glad to have chatted with two friends today that live in countries that are next door to the one I live in.It was bittersweet to laugh again,share an just be. Friends are real …
