My Last Day with Hodel

Yesterday was the last day of Hodel's visit. :-(  She had to go home today.  I am so sad - I miss her already!  The house seems so quiet and lonely without her around.  We did have a great last day together, though.  We went to the beach at Lake Michigan and swam and played in the sand.

Here we are in our beach coverups looking out at the water.  Hodel was telling me about the other Great Lakes she's visited.  If she sees two more, she'll have been to all five!

We played in the sand until the sun got too hot, and then we braved the waves.  Sometimes Lake Michigan is super cold, but it's been so hot this summer that the water was not cold at all.

It was such a perfect day at the beach!

Hodel made a photo album all about her visit with me.  It has all the pictures I've posted here plus more.  You can look at it here:


Shalom, Hodel, and Kol Tuv!  (I hope I said that right - I was trying to say goodbye, Hodel, and be well!) :-)

Kol Tuv means something like "May you be blessed with everything good" ... depending on who you ask! :D

Anna Lee, I always have such a good time with you. Thank you so much for having me again (and be sure to thank Katie!) You'll have to come visit again soon! I miss you already!

Once again, it's been an amazing summer. I wish you luck this school year!

Miss you already,

Hehe - I think I like your translation of Kol Tuv better; it sounds more exciting than plain old "be well." Tell your Rosie that my Nancy asked where she was today. I guess she forgot you had to leave and take her with you :-( I like your new blog - how do you like the site so far? I have been annoyed with LiveJournal lately because of the annoying pop up ads that are always appearing now. :-( But I'm not sure if I have the energy to move all my old blog entries to a whole new one, and I would hate to lose them all....sigh. Decisions, decisions!

Thanks! Alyosha set it up for me when I was in Michigan with you. She wants me to start blogging now that I'm almost back in Ohio.

I think blogger is MUCH easier to use than livejournal. It's really obvious to use, but you can get geeky with it too! It's MUCH easier to work with, and there aren't any pop-up adds! You should try it out.

Rosie was very sad to leave. She keeps telling me how much she misses Nacy Drew. But she's okay now, because I told her it isn't really goodbye, because goodbye means forever.

"Until we meet again" sounds much nicer than goodbye, I think. :-) That is what I will Nancy to think about, too!

Thanks for your thoughts on your new blogsite...I am seriously considering a switch of some sort just because of these terrible pop ups! Argghh....

Hello! I'm Miley! My mama just found your blog and really loves it! We can't take NEAR as good pictures as you (in the posts below) But I was wondering if you read our blog? We are living at a school right now and mama is at home. But It's an awesome life with all my sisters!
Hope you have the chance to come!

Hey, Anna Lee! How have you been? I haven't talked to you in forever! I hope all is well!

Your friend,

Hi, Hodel! All is well with me - I got a bed of my own recently (though still no room of my own)! I haven't been updating my blog because I really want to switch it over to another hosting site, but Katie hasn't had much time to help me move my old entries yet. :-( Hopefully I will have it back up and running soon!

I miss you.
Anna Lee- please come back with more of your adventures. I really miss reading your blog. It's been almost a year since your last posting and you've been silent for so long. I hope nothing is wrong.
Best regards, Tupper (Doll lover and mother to many!)

Re: I miss you.
Hi, Tupper! Don't worry - I am doing just fine; in fact, I am in Cincinnati right now visiting my friend Hodel! I haven't been updating my blog because all the pop-up ads here on LiveJournal are really bugging me and I want to switch my blog to another site. I don't want to lose all my old entries, though, and want to see if I can repost them at a new site...but I need Katie's help and she hasn't had much time/motivation for that project yet. :-( But I will be back eventually, I promise! Thanks for reading my blog and enjoying it...I really do appreciate that. :-)
