I mentioned in my last post that I enjoy a busy weekend, and I thought I would share one from August with you. Another friend, R, had a BBQ and we had the same angst about the weather.

For me primarily, it is an abundance of good friends and family whom I do not see regularly enough. However this week, it has also been the weather. When I was packing, I asked my mum what the weather was like. Read the rest of this entry »
