And poof, gone

There was packing. There was a glad-you-were-here celebration of a dinner. He sold his Suburu to a dealer today because he wasn’t going to need a car in New York City, and then his girlfriend gave him a ride from the lot to our house and helped him get ready for his flight out.

And so, our nephew left tonight after spending the summer with us while doing an internship and getting to know her family better as well as ours.

I’m trying hard not to mope.  Such a nice kid. And besides–he needed to gain weight after an illness, I need to gain weight, who else can I bake for like that totally guilt-free? Speaking of which: the hazelnut cookies? Skip the oil and add several ounces of good dark chocolate instead. Just sayin’.

(I got the girlfriend’s favorite color out of her before the evening was over. So sneaky. Right.)

I’ve no doubt he appreciated your kindness and generosity as much as you enjoyed his company this summer!

You mope? I didn’t know you had time to mope!

I’m with Bev, no time to mope. You’ve got Princess Eden knitting, and that favorite color knitting, and birds dancing, and just maybe some I’m-not-moping baking to do? Chocolate always helps. Your nephew sounds like a great kid (seems to be a trend in your family) and I wish him well.

Wait?! The summer is over already? Jeepers, that went way too fast.
