Outside my window.. the sky is a little gray and dreary. I think we got some rain last night, but I'm not sure what the rest of the day is supposed to be like.
I am thinking... that I need to get off the computer and get this day started, but not before I finish this post. I'm looking forward to the start of school in a couple of weeks and having some sort of a routine. Lazy summer days are nice, but there is something to be said for getting back into a schedule
I am thankful for... finally getting back to normal. Combine a little post-vacation let down with a bad case of PMS and you get one insanely miserable Colleen. Seriously, this past week was pretty much a blur of crankiness, cloudy thoughts and couch potato-ness. I was kind of a mess, but now I'm feeling normal and cheery again! Yay!
I'm wearing... a black tank top and gray yoga pants. Not that I plan to do any yoga...
or maybe I will...
I am remembering... with a smile, my Aunt Deb. She just called me and it was wonderful to talk to her. She summers in Maine, so we spent a good portion of our vacation going on "adventures" with her. (More on those later!)
I am creating... nothing in particular right now, but I'm ready for a project. Maybe we'll go out and do some peach/ apple/ blackberry picking and then I'll be able to create all sorts of yummy goodies. It's a thought!
I am going...to do some housework today. After that, Julia and I are planning to do some projects from her Mythbusters science kits.
I am reading...hmmmm... some book by Fern Michaels that I borrowed from my mother. I can't remember what it's called and I only just started it so I'll have to let you know if it's any good.
I am hoping... that we find lots of fun things to do during these last couple of weeks of summer. We've had a great summer so far.
Pondering these words.... "Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting."

Isn't that sad? I hate goodbyes.
From the kitchen...sausage and egg sandwiches... probably for lunch. They're a total blast from the past for me. We used to order these from the local pizza place when I was seven years old. So far, my eggs haven't been recalled, so hopefully it won't be a sausage, egg and salmonella sandwich. :)
Around the house...the floors need a good vacuuming and there are still a few things left from our trip that need to find homes.
One of my favorite things...Rocks! I love rocks. We have tons and tons of rocks around the house. I always wonder what the movers think when they have to pack up all of our rocks. But we love them and they are beautiful (and cheap) souvenirs of our trips. If only Charlie Brown felt the same way... his Halloween would have been much better!
A few plans for the rest of the week... I don't know if I have any definite plans yet. I've been hoping to go to the local pick your own farm this week. I'll have to check their schedule to see whats available. I think there is a dentist appointment or two scheduled for this week.
A picture I would like to share... How about a couple? From one of the silliest little gift shops in Maine.
