Kathyrynzj brings us a great idea for a Friday Five today. She asks: What are five things you like to do with friends? The question itself makes me realize that I don't spend enough time with my friends.
Be that as it may, when I do get to spend time with friends, here are five ways we spend our time:
1. Dinner and conversation. Every once in awhile I'll cook a nice meal, but more often than not it's an evening out at a fun restaurant, like the evening my husband and I spent with blogger and friend Jan at the Dakota Restaurant when she was visiting Minneapolis.
2. Taking a walk. Because of where I live, often the walk will be around a lake. But, not necessarily. Sometimes it's just a nice walk and a talk through a shady neighborhood.
3. Going to church. Admittedly, this is a rare occurrence. But, last summer, on one of my Sundays off, I had fun visiting the church of one of my friends here in Minneapolis. I like to worship with friends, when I can.
4. Going out for coffee. Or chai. Or, a glass of wine.
In the past, my list might have included: 1) going to the Festival of Animation, 2) renting a lot of movies and making popcorn, 3) trying out a new recipe, 4) writing stories and reading them to each other, 5) singing (I had a couple of friends I used to sing with).
