I don't really know where I will be at any given time so I am thankful for friends who allow me to come at a moments notice and stay at their house for a few days. I've been friends with Katy and Richard for years and for now, they live in a community outside of Seattle. I got up pretty early from the campsite and called Katy to say I was near and she said, "sure, come on by!" I arrived a few hours later and decided to stay for a while.
It is so relaxing here. Her guest room is like sleeping on a cloud. After days of camping and sleeping in the dirt, sleeping in a home and being among friends was a welcome treat! It's been too long since I've been here and I am so glad I was able to stay for a while to catch up.
Richard and Katy are so kind to me, I am lucky to have them as friends. I love their little girls and Max does too. Max had a lot of play time with them in the backyard and around the house. When they weren't watching, Max would steal a toy from their room to play with. I actually saw him smile for the first time in days.
I enjoy traveling and being alone but there is something about the comfort of being around good friends. It will be hard to leave, but I am so glad I had this time with them. Next stop...being a tourist in Seattle and then, who knows?
