Family of Friends


This is what is left of a most scrumptious coconut cake that 'Aunty Cathy' sent home with us Sunday evening. Mr. K participated in the art tour this weekend in which he hauls most of his paintings and prints from his studio to our home and hosts an open house Fri, Sat, and Sun. The house becomes a gallery unfit for the children, so I packed up the child folk and went for a weekend sleep-over to Aunty Cathy's.

'Losing family helps us to find our family. Not necessarily the family that is our blood, but the family that may become our blood.'

This is a quote from one of my favourite films, Finding Forrester, in part because it describes my experience so succinctly. I have one sister who lives in the U.S. and to whom I am very close and miss deeply. I have two more 'sisters' who have become my blood. 'Aunty Cathy' is one of them. I met her when I was ten and we have been related ever since. We had a wonderful weekend with her and her family and I am grateful to have her in my life.
Thank you for stopping by.
Aside: Due to the open house art tour I have had no time for the play area. Hope to post something soon, however.
