Do you have a BFF? A girlfriend that you can’t imagine life without? Someone that you share EVERYTHING with? I am fortunate in having several best friends. If you have attended the Academy, I’m sure that you have met them. But one, Nancy S., and I seem to be joined at the hip. Lol. Here is a typical day in our lives:
Barbara: How are you coming with your new Wool Oak Mystery Quilt?
Nancy: Pretty good, but a lot of the blocks have pumpkins in them, and I don’t have a lot of orange wool.
Barbara: Well, where would you go to buy quality wool.
Nancy: Nancy Nehez has been telling us that we should go visit Primitive Homespuns in Frederick, MD.
Barbara: Great, I wanted to go back to Wilson’s in Hagerstown, MD to match some background fabric.
Nancy: It is about a 3 ½ – 4-hour drive.
Barbara: Pack an overnight bag, we might find other Quilt Stores along the way. I’ll bring the cooler and pick you up tomorrow morning about 7:30?
Nancy: See you then!
After a GREAT day of traveling, shopping, and eating, we did stay overnight. The next morning . . .
Nancy: Are you in any hurry to get home?
Barbara: No, I just want to avoid the traffic around DC as it is Friday.
Nancy: No problem. Let’s go home via Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Barbara: Let’s go.
We social distanced, and masked – but we got back to a new normal; staying at a hotel, eating outside and inside restaurants . . . but more importantly . . . spent time together in our favorites pastime . . . shop hopping!
That’s how we roll! Ha Ha. Do you have a friend like that? Thanks, Nancy, for a wonderful, spontaneous trip.
