Friday Five: Time with Friends Edition

Kathrynzj at RevGals says:  "I have been spending my week with one of my favorite people and it has been a joy. As you can tell by our shoes lined up in the picture from our first ever visit together we have slightly different hobbies - those that require cleats and those that require... lavender Crocs. Despite our differences we have found commonalities in conversation and coffee; life and faith. This week we were both working but were still able to find the time to hang out in a really cool bookstore and see the autumn scenery at a nearby state park.

For today's Friday Five please tell us 5 things you like to do with friends. Are they local - do you hit a favorite coffee shop or nail salon? What about the friends who come in from out of town? Do you have a restaurant or museum you like to show off?  Thanks for playing!"
Time with friends is something that I have so enjoyed since being out of work!  I wonder some days how I had time to work.  :)  Here are my five things:
1.  Coffee, lunch or dinner.  Pick one, pick all.  I like 'em.  Depending on the friend we have many different places to hang out.  The young adult friends are loving to have birthday dinners at this place.  Usually the go to place, though is the Taqueria.  Many life conversations have happened at the Taqueria.  Sometimes lunch AND dinner in the same day!  Coffee with K is usually at Star$.  Coffee with LN can range from a lively discussion outside Peets or walking around the amusement park in #3...with behind the scenes tours 'cuz she works there!  It's just nice to hang out, laugh and talk.

2.  Game night with the Ladies.  Usually involves food.  Sometimes involves, Sequence, whatever we come up with.  Always involves lively conversation, laughter until someone cries (or pees a little but we don't care) and always involves some kind of margarita.

3.  Depending on the out of town friend, we could wind up at the beach, walking in the redwoods or at our local amusement park.  Right now we would probably be down at the beach trying to get a glimpse of the humpback whales that have been feeding along the coast.

4.  I loooooovvvvvveeee concerts.  My favorite moments this year have been at the two (yes 2), Amy Grant & Michael W. Smith Friend2Friend concerts that I got to attend with friends.  Aunt C used to be my favorite concert friend but she moved away.  Sigh.

5.  Long car rides or road trips have been some of my favorite moments with friends.  The goofier the better!  Yesterday was probably the perfect day.  A car ride with youth pastor friend T to meet Songfriend at a restaurant for lunch.  Nice!

Actually, anytime with hanging out with my friends is fantastic.  Just being known and loved by others is good!
