The Loveliest of Friends

Posted on

This Saturday turned out to be nearly perfect.  It was both productive and relaxing.  We woke up a bit early and lounged around in bed for a while because it was so much warmer in the bedroom than the rest of the apartment.  After watching 30 Rock, I went to McDonald’s to get us breakfast.  A heavy breakfast and Dickens made me sleepy so I took a glorious nap.  I love sleeping in the middle of the day.  It almost feels like cheating.

We braved the wilds of Costco on a Saturday.  We didn’t find ranch dressing, but came home with some other treasures including a big bag of lemons and a huge bag of Tollhouse chocolate chips.  I used those chocolate chips to make peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  I don’t really think there’s anything else that needs to be said about those cookies.  The title of the recipe pretty much covers it.  I boxed up the cookies to take to a little get-together at our friend Gillian’s place, and we headed out into the cold once again.

When we arrived at Gill’s I was surprised to discover that our friends had actually organized this evening in honor of our engagement.  It was so sweet and so thoughtful.  Gill presented us with a scrapbook she had put together with photos and messages from our friends here in Taiwan and some of Geoff’s friends and family from back home.  I have to say it was one of the most thoughtful gifts I’ve ever received from a friend.  I could tell that she put a lot of effort and time into it.  I felt so loved.  I truly do have the loveliest of friends.  Thank you so much for thinking about us.  I had a fantastic time sharing wine and pizza and stories.  Can’t wait to see them at brunch this morning and eat some more.
