It's probably a sign of the times...or our small group's demographics... but several members have taken on more employment outside of their family jobs. Net/net for Sisters is that we don't get to see some of our buddies very often and they don't get to be inspired by the group's work. In an effort change that dynamic, we decided to trial meeting at night (oh, horrors!) once a month.
Last night was our first meeting...it's tricky planning any meeting in the summer, but we soldiered on. There were eight of us: five Sisters and three Friends. And what fun it was. Gail hosted. Starting the evening with a glass of sangria set the tone: fun and friendly, which was nice because I was asking for a critique of one of my pieces. (I might want to take a bottle of wine to the next crit group meeting...just sayin')
We scheduled meetings for the next three months, which I take to mean that the meeting was a success and the new evening sub-group is launched. Thank you, Gail for your warm hospitality.
