There's a saying in pagan circles I'm very fond of. Merry Meet, Merry Part, and Merry Meet Again.
That was exactly my yesterday. After a quick half-day of remote work from Michael & Maya's, Maya and I went out on Very Important Errands™ that included eating copious amounts of sushi together.
We also got to go visit with, and really shanghai our friend Amelia, who I love dearly. And, I texted my sister Pene, who also lives in the area, and let her know I was down here. Here's how that went:
Me: Guess who's in North Carolina? I'll give you a hint. His name rhymes with Nako.
Sister: Where are you in NC?????
Me: Maya's car.
Once we worked out the directions and arrangements, all of us, Michael, Maya, Amelia, Pene, and Uncle J, and me, the rhymes-with-nako previously mentioned, all met up for dinner. I loved being surrounded by people I love. We had a great dinner, laughed, talked, and when it was time to go our seperate ways, did so merrilly. So nice.
