Of many things....

All of a sudden I realize that summer is just about over and there is still so much that I want to do! The kids head back to school in exactly one week, and then we will really be into the swing of things.

Karen and her kids were here overnight last night and she and I bailed and went to book club. We had read The Poisonwood Bible, and although she had not, she was content to tag along. Next is the Red Tent. We made ourselves curry for supper as seems to be our tradition, and enjoyed it immensly. We also made coffee ice-cream. It was amazing.

My friend who I have been helping along with his discovery of birth family has been in contact now with his mother, and father, sister, brother and some half siblings. Just the other day, I learned that his bio brother lives not far from where we used to and that Hudson actually knows him. I have now seen a picture of him and they are the spitting image of one another. Mutual friends of ours say that their mannerisms are also very similar. Again I am blown away by how much genetics have to do with things!

Hud has meetings at night the next few days, so I shall enjoy just sitting around enjoying the crisp evenings on the porch.

Off now to hang out some laundry and work in the garden...thankfully it is a wonderful sunny and warm afternoon.

I have been such a bad blogger and blogger friend this summer. I think though I am finally getting back into the swing of things. I know I havent been commenting but I have been checking in on you every few days!

I echo Evey's sentiment exactly. I have not been blogging much this summer either...much rather enjoying reading in the backyard and the garden you helped me start this year!

So glad to hear about your friend's contact with his birth family! And so glad you had a great relax with Karen.

I think you should post your curry recipe. I love curry! It must be so special for you and Karen to spend time together. You two are such peas-in-a-pod:).

The Red Tent is a good read. I read it a few years ago and enjoyed it, hopefully you'll feel the same way.

Sounds like fun all the way around. I WISH we had one more week until school started. We are already into the second week.

Have fun relaxing!

That is so cool that two people that have never been around each other can have the same hand movements or behaviors... just so cool!

Enjoy your weekend!
