Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Wow, what a busy week I had! Not only did I get a lot of reading done but I also did a lot of fun things this last week.  It was Hubby & my 8th anniversary (unfortunately with our schedules we only saw each other as I passed Munchkin off to him in the morning before work). We took Munchkin to Boston for the Children's Book Festival and to visit the Aquarium (again unfortunately the book festival was just to chaotic). Of course yesterday was also Father's Day.  We also continued working on our Index Card a Day projects and I have upped my art time for some Pocket Letter and ATC exchanges.


  1. Wow! Sounds like you had a crazy week. At least you had fun. It's been so hot here I can't go outside and do anything. Oh well. More time for reading.

    1. It was a crazy week but so fun. We usually don't get unbearably hot and humid until August here, the cold ocean water keeps the area pretty cool. We did finally turn the AC on this week though because the humidity got really bad.
