I think if I was left to my own devices I could easily become a hermit, so it is just as well I have friends who occasionally invite me to join them for lunch.
I always enjoy it, so I’m not really sure why it takes so much effort to be more social. Perhaps I am getting into a bit of a rut – and that is no good at all!
Today I joined an old friend at a quiet café and we happily passed an hour together chatting about this and that and nothing in particular.
I ordered Macaroni Cheese and it came with token salad and a decorative drizzle of sweet sauce. It went well with my lemon and ginger tea.
The afternoon was quiet and I had a little snooze on my bed in the sun. It made Mittens very happy – she loves having me in the bedroom and seems to think it is her Cat Duty to keep an eye on me when I am there.
Lately she has been developing a new habit – if she thinks I haven’t come to bed at a reasonable hour, she will come and butt her head against my leg and then sit and frown at me (yes, cats can frown) until I make a move.
How can you not love an adoring moggy?
Lovely to have a nice meal out with a friend - it looks tastyReplyDelete
Oh yes, those moggies certainly can make us know what they think of us! Sounds like a lovely day Margaret.ReplyDelete
Yay for friends and my, that food looks very good. And I am hungry since half an hour!ReplyDelete
Ohhh, Mittens is the cutest!
The important thing with all social interaction is reciprocation so be sure not to wait to be invited, Margaret, or you may unwittingly become a hermit!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a wonderful lunch combo. I, too, tend to stay at home most days with no apologies. Contentment is very underrated! Blessings...ReplyDelete
Zoey does something similar when she thinks we need to go to bed. She will come look at us, run to the bedroom and repeat. Eventually, she will just go to bed by herself.ReplyDelete
Yummy lunch and Mittens sounds like a very loving companion :)ReplyDelete
Das ist so süß mit Ihrer Katze. Grüße aus Germany.ReplyDelete
That is a caring cat! Out for the occasional lunch is a great treat!ReplyDelete
Cats are great company, sometimes bossy but still great company!ReplyDelete
Yup we are all adorable. Xxx Mr TReplyDelete
I am hardly social at all. Because I work in retail it makes me not want to see more people on my days off, although I did catch up with a cousin yesterday so that was nice.ReplyDelete
Mittens takes her duty (keeping an eye on you) seriously. Does Millie ever join the two of you or is she more of a loner? GMReplyDelete
Millie takes care of Son. They sort of divide their duties between us :)Delete
Oh yeah, it's always good to meet friends... and yes, friendships have to be nurtured... otherwise they never happen.ReplyDelete
A hug for you.
The lunch looks very good, and it is always good to see friends. Cats are adorable:)ReplyDelete
I absolutely agree...I could be a hermit as well. I like the quiet life...but you're right, I need to get out at least once in a while!ReplyDelete
How many times do I say to myself, "I should do that more often"? But being content with spending my time quietly at home gets in the way. Your lunch does look good!ReplyDelete
