California needs her more than Germany. Because I said so.

Hamilton? I didn’t hear the rest so I parked on that street and pulled out my phone; Holly appeared within maybe ten seconds and I waved.

It’s not often you get to share lunch with a knitter who lives on a different continent. (And then she surprised me and treated me at Coupa Cafe–thank you, Holly!)

We talked knitting, we talked kids, we both looked forward to the day she and her husband actually move here and stay put, but in the meantime, we grabbed what time together we could.

And then I very reluctantly drove her to the train station and went home to do exciting things like getting laundry done and put away.

Our nephew Ryan will be arriving tonight. I can’t wait!

I’m glad you had a great visit with Holly. Is Ryan all settled in?

What’s the saying? When the door closes, something comes in the window. It’s a good thing you like doing laundry.

My Mom loved the long weekend she got to spend with her granddaughter–and wished it could last the whole summer!

I wish you (and yours) a wonderful reunion and many happy days – with the health required to enjoy it to the max! 🙂

It is a measure of how tired I’ve been all week that I didn’t notice the name of your nephew. Would this be the Ryan that I know and love?
