catch-up with my friend

My friend Arlene and her husband Robert visited with us this afternoon. The visit was completely unplanned and the idea arose during a conversation that I had with her earlier this afternoon. When I agreed that she should stop by, I mentioned it to my husband and assured him that I would straighten up our home a bit in advance of their visit. The next thirty minutes can be characterized as a mad dash to clean up in advance of their arrival.
It was pretty amazing how much could be accomplished in such a short period of time. It happens that I was just finishing with putting away the dishes from the dishwasher when they arrived. Thus, my husband was happy that I didn’t have anyone over when the house wasn’t clean. While they were here I had an opportunity to catch-up with my friend while our husbands watched the Olympics. Just as they were leaving, I woke my youngest daughter, who they had never met, and took a few pictures. Overall, I think it was a very nice way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.
