BHK made a lemon cake, an we gave him a lemon meringue pie and tickets to the bluegrass festival. (and the first three lethal weapon movies on dvd)
Adam brought a keen gift of fridge and microwave combo for his workshop... and stocked it with 5 cases of soda and water.
After the get-together, BHK and I headed home to get some rest... I think we fell asleep on the couch within moments of landing there. We were awakened by neighbor Daniel (10) at the door, wanting to visit and gab because he was bored. We talked a lot about social topics a 10 year old might have, like school, movies etc. - Buckaroo Banzai was on, mute dint the background, and was an interesting juxtaposition of listening to the little guy gab.
He eventually went home, and we had sloppy joes and garlic fries for supper - super yummy.
Danny and Mom phoned... or I phoned them, I forget which. I think I called Danny, the momster called me. Just general catching up, both are doing ok.
Autumn is coming... that's when BHK gets her pumpkin eyes.
BHk's doodle of my accusation re: her fondness for all things pumpkin-flavored, come the fall. Coffee, ice cream, bread... you name it!
