My woman's club hosted an ice cream social this evening, on the patio of a local garden center. At one point, a few drops of rain fell on the party and not one person made a move to escape the moisture, indeed, we all welcomed it; our state is on fire and we are in dire need of the rain.
Do you hear that, Mother Nature? We would like a downpour, please.
Anyway, the ice cream social was a mixer for new members as well as an occasion for old members to visit and get reacquainted. The Teenager went with me, in her capacity of ASTRA Communications Chair, and; was happy to see that the daughter of one of my friends was also in attendance. The girls spent the evening catching up and giggling over things that teenagers giggle over.
I got to catch up with one of my friends who isn't able to make meetings as often as she would like due to her new work schedule, which was nice (catching up, I mean, not her new work schedule; I'm sure that sucks).
I also got cornered by the current District Governor, who was instrumental in getting our ASTRA club established; she was full of wonderful things to say about our group, which made me feel pretty special.
All in all, it was a nice way to spend a summer evening.
I mean, you can't go wrong with ice cream; am I right?
