~ Since May I think I've read more books than I've ever done before. I've read almost every book Janet Evanovich has written and scads more. And if you're looking for a good quick read, I recommend Tracy Chevalier's The Girl With A Pearl Earring. It was a wonderful book. I'm going to have to watch the movie now to see how badly Hollywood destroyed it.
~ The Lensday Photo Challenge is Candy. I have no candy in the house. I think I may have to make a stop in Gene and Boots to get a picture.
~ Saturday I'm taking my nephews to Idlewild Park as a last hurrah before Labor Day. I can't wait to go, and I promise that I'll take loads of pictures there. It's been at least 7 years since I've been there, and lord only knows how many more will pass before I go again.
At least I won't be bored this weekend.
~ The Blue Jays erm..blue jays in my yard are just as elusive as those other ones.
You know, these blue jays
Always the bird photographer, I've been trying to get one decent shot of the blue jays that come and feed on the bread I toss out each morning. If a bird could blue raspberries at me, this blue jay could do it. I spent quite a bit of the morning trying to capture his image. No luck.
~ Today's the last day of the happiness challenge. So what else makes me happy? Mix CDs! And thanks to Karen, I have a great idea for a mix: Least Appropriate Songs for A Porn Soundtrack! Give me a few days and I'll post the mix here!
countdown to an altogether more local road trip
