A play date with a friend.

Liz and me. We used to work together at REDBOOK. Boy our lives are different now!

Hanging out with a friend you haven’t seen in a while is a definite mood-booster (provided you actually like the person!). 😉 My two kids and I just got back from playing at our favorite local park with my friend Liz and her 3 boys. They only live about 45 minutes away from us, but we rarely get to see them, so this was a real treat. Fortunately, Liz and I had a good phone chat yesterday so we weren’t the least bit frustrated by the little creatures impeding our conversation. Ha, ha, ha.  It was nice to stand back and watch our kids smiling and playing together while basking in the sun–something Old Man Winter hasn’t allowed us to do for quite some time! Everywhere I looked I saw tree buds blossoming, flowers blooming, and lush green grass. Being outside felt so invigorating.

There was a slight wind, so we attempted to fly the kite that Liz happened to have in her car. We didn’t succeed but it sure was fun trying!

Liz desperately trying to catch some wind.

For those of you who are stuck indoors today, I hope you had a chance to soak up some rays during your lunch break. But even if you didn’t, it’ll still be light by the time you get home, so plan on having dinner al fresco! And while you’re at it, why don’t you call an old friend and try to meet up? I promise it’ll crush your crankiness in a second!
