Yesterday, I was off work and got to spend the day with a friend and her kids. I do not get to see them nearly enough. We blasted rockets, practised super hero powers, played with play doh, climbed slides, worked in a factory that processed wood chips to (magically) make bread and robots, went for a walk, watched caterpillars, played instruments, got drooled on, cried at, laughed at, told jokes, and lived a lot in a short time. We also drank tea, talked about passports, travel, homes, families, music, and any other topic that blew into our minds with the lovely autumn breeze. And I had a wonderful time.
