It's all relative

This is a non-knitting-related post. Yesterday Ed and I had a really nice visit with his cousin Brendan (on his mother's side) and Brendan's wife, Kate (pictured above at O'Donnovan's, where Ed and friends had just watched England lose in the World Cup). Kate is doing her law school internship in Chicago this summer, and Brendan was visiting this weekend from Iowa. They hope to be moving here next summer, which would be great. It was fun to meet both of them. Brendan and I have lots in common, in that we're both writing books. His is about a jazz musician; mine, about the spiritual journey of infertility. Well, at least we're both writers.

It would be nice to have relatives in Chicago. We are about to take a pontoon ride with the neighbors to celebrate them selling their house. Got a new hot water heater installed yesterday. They guy is still planning to take Kelly. He is moving to Greendale on Wednesday and it will be after that. Got a great recipe from Holly for an Icy Latte. 1 c. skim milk, 1 tsp. instant coffee, 4-5 ice cubes, about 1 tsp. Splenda, a dash of vanilla (I bet a shot of Irish Whiskey would work!). Blend until thick. I may take a pitcher of these on the boat.

Infertility - spiritual? It certainly is, in the most surprising of ways. Good luck with writing the book!
