Friday, August 14's August and we're STILL busy???

I'm really disappointed that 2 weeks into August and we're STILL way busier than I want to be!! Our round up this week included 2 sleep overs, a two lunch dates, 2 dr. visits, 1 crafting assignment, a quick business card design for a friend - or was that last week ????, a trip to the Fair to see the Demolition Derby, grocery shopping, and more but I can't remember....oh a conference call to work out some details of cool things to come in the near future :-), but you'll have to hold on to your pants for that because I'm still working on my part before I can show you your part!! hmmmm. mysterious.

The weekend is also BUSY - but fun busy. Goin' to the movies with two of my craftie friends to see the Julia Child movie - looking forward to that - but before that we're getting up early to pick 6 (or 8 depending on the berries) more quarts of blue berries for the freezer - then on Sunday I'm teaching a private scrapbooking lesson in Yarmouth. And Saturday is my Dad's birthday - which I was supposed to make a cake but instead played Boggle with the neighborhood kids and my Mom. When I got home I remembered I went to my Mom's to borrow cocoa powder and 1/2 cup of milk for said chocolate cake. She was relieved, though - because if I didn't make the cake then she didn't have to make the frosting for it....he he. Love how those things work out.

Oh, btw....I skunked everyone at Boggle. I got 40, the closest score was a 16. I attribute it to my creative mind :-)

So, here's a quick run-down in photos of my week:

Catching up with my friend Gayle. We can't remember the last time we saw each other, but both agree that the last time we actually had time to catch up was between 12 and 15 years. Phew, it felt good!

My boy and two of his friends at the Demolition Derby. They had a great time, but they had more fun on the bumper cars than watching the Derby, must be because they were re-living the experience???

One of my favorite flowers - the Purple Cone Flower. I told my boy to choose a cool table at one of our lunch dates (Wild Oats, yum!) and he picked the table with this on it.....he's such a sweet boy! When I asked him what he thought the center of the purple cone flower would feel like before I had him touch it....he thought it would be soft. He was pretty surprised, wished I'd gotten a picture of his face. If you've never felt the center of one of these, you should....I guarentee you'll be surprised. If you can imagine this, it feels a lot like what I imagine a dull porcipine feels like, LOL!!

Well, that's all for tonight. I must get my sleepy butt to bed. THANKS for visiting and enjoy your weekend!
