Words For The Journey

Some days are blessed. Today was one of those days. I was able to enjoy lunch with my writing friends at a lovely park. 
This morning was the weekly meeting for my WFTJ writer's group. After today's meeting, we all took sack lunches and went out to eat together at a local park. 

See the lovely cotton tablecloths? Those are vintage, from the 1940s and 1950s. I love that style and the substantial feel of the the fabric. BTW, they're all mine. I always carry a tablecloth in my car. You never know when you're going to need one. Some of the girls thought I was kidding when I said that. Not so. See this post and this one for further explanation. I usually have one tablecloth in the car, but today I grabbed some extra for my friends. 

I pack a lunch when I go to my day job a few days a week, and another thing I always have is a linen napkin. See it? I stuffed it in the top of my green purse on the bench. I think we should take good care of ourselves and our friends. Having the simple pleasures of nice tablecloths when you eat on a public table is a luxury. Ahhh. 

Oh, I didn't get the hat memo. Apparently Robbie, Kay and Chris did.

I came so close to not even going today. I'm so glad I did.
I love vintage stuff and didn't get the chance to tell you how pretty those are. I will have to get some, myself. I have aprons.

I have aprons too, though I don't use them.

I didn't know there was a hat club going on.

Love you all!
