New Year in St. Louis

Gary and I have had a wonderful New Year week here in my hometown.  We shared a late Christmas with my Sister, two brothers and their families - what a crowd!

Connected with a couple we have not seen in >20 years on new years eve in the middle of a snow storm.  Spent about 6 hours catching up and just enjoying each others company.  

Called a friend from my BS Pharmacy class who lives in the St. Louis area (we've friended each other on facebook, so have been following the day to day for some time) talked with her for more than 2 hours.  Were unable to meet face to face as she was under the weather, but have hopes that we can connect on another trip to STL. 

Exchanged Christmas gifts with my best frined from high school and her husband.  I'm amazed - we have so much in common although we lost contact with each other for more than 30 years.  She is big into cafts of all types and I've dabbled in knitting, crochet, cross stitch, macrame and now quilting has taken over for me.  I'm trying to convert her to a quilter, but so far no luck.  We both enjoy hand made items and each other's company. 

Today we're getting together with cousins from my dad's side of the family and tomorrow is a party for a great nephew (cristening party) and a birthday party for his brother (3years old), should be a lot of fun. 

Back home to Memphis tomorrow night.
