Had the best day yesterday. Breakfast with one of the fellas from the gym... Don. I am so in with the 65 and older crowd and I just love them. They cheer me up every time I see them and we all say good morning and they have no idea how much they brightened my days this past year.
Don was such a gentleman, so smart, such a great conversationalist, great stories... and I feel really happy to start to get to know him. He and Bob (also from the gym) go fly fishing and he said they would teach me and we can go to Red Feather Lakes this summer to fish for trout in belly boats. Sounds good to me.
Got to work and we've hired so many new people. There are two that I just jive with... Vicki and Garrentt... they are married and young - early 30s - and a total kick in the pants. Garrentt has a squat rack, a barbell and weight plates to sell me... SCORE.
After work, met with a great friend, Kelley, for dinner at 415 - a restaurant I adore in town (goat cheese, beet salad with swordfish skewers and mixed veggies with a side o' spaghetti squash). After dinner we headed to the local performing arts place to see Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn.
SO AMAZING. Bela Fleck if you don't know (and I actually didn't) is a bluegrass banjo guy... not just any bluegrass banjo guy - he's been nominated for something like 15 Grammy Awards and Abigail is his wife - also an incredible banjo musician, has the most gorgeous voice, she speaks fluent Chinese - and sang a bluegrass song in Chinese.. wha? How freaking cool! And if that weren't enough she began clogging at one point. She is fabulous and they put a huge grin on your face to see such talent.
A lot of me wants to hole up and just keep to myself given the experiences this past year... but boy... that really isn't me. I like having friends.
Was just a really great day from start to finish. The universe telling me it's all gonna be jussst fine. (which I KNOW, I do - I totally KNOW this... but it's nice to have a super day to back up that knowledge)
