How time flies when we're having fun! Jess just left on Amtrak this morning after spending 6 days with us. Where did the time go? She would have stayed longer, but duty calls; she'll be teaching summer school for migrant kids starting next Monday.

Twenty-six years ago, when I was pregnant with Jess, I made an appointment with a hairdresser -- my first "professional" haircut in over 10 years! My hair was very long, waist-length or thereabouts. My hairdresser, Kiarra, was a charming young woman who also happened to be pregnant with her first child. We instantly hit it off and I have been visiting Kiarra at either her home or the salon where she rents a station, ever since. She also cut Jess' hair all the years she lived here and Jess has held a special place in Kiarra's heart and prayers throughout the years. Kiarra had us over for lunch and we had wonderful time visiting her in her delightful cottage. I could move into her home tomorrow and be right at home!

Wally is in the midst of "busy season" at Premier and is working an average of 15 hours a day, and now it will be 6 days a week. Sadly, we didn't see much of him last week. Jess missed him a lot, but he did manage to get off early on Saturday so we spent some time at the beach and the Saturday market.

And there was plenty of time to do what Jess and I love best!

Godspeed, little one! We miss you already!
