I have no more time to ponder around the blogging world like I would like too. Seems you can always find some pretty funny - fun and interesting people out & about in the blogging world. Plus some real weirdos.. and some really angry people. Geesh. So I ponder these things.. cheated & have seen them before.. but hey ya gotta wonder & wonder & ponder the pondering of these things. Have a great weekend!

A day

It was just that- a day. I was never on my game today. But what else is new?
The weekend was fun. went with the Donovan's in Portland to see the Starlight Parade. It was a fun unplanned thing to do. We ate dinner at the food vendors. Its' a street with about 5 or so street vendors- German- Russian- Mexican- Greek- Thia - and some others. The boys were happy campers. We came across a deli that served beer- yeah. AND they had a bathroom- YEAH YEAH! We watched the parade & it was fun seeing the marching bands and some floats. No- I didn't take my camera. I didn't want to haul it around. We rode the light rail transit back to the Donovan's home. It was so full. I had a panic attack. I had to have all of get off. I felt better though. It 's just a long ride. But worth it not to have to park downtown. We had a really good time. Nice to see them all. We don't do it enough.
I am behind once again terribly on scrapping. Terry found this information postcard for a place on Widbey Island- which is in Washington state. I emailed the gal & I REALLY want to go this fall. Just get away. If you ask me now what I want for my birthday- Christmas whatever- I'll tell you- a weekend to scrapbook. With the store I have no time to do what I love with my own stuff. The other place I found is in Yahats Oregon.. on the coast- just a different part of the coast. It's by the Scrappy Chicks. Click on the retreat center to the left.. you can see the floor plan.
So anyhoo- time to say goodnight to Cameron. He is on the countdown to no school & being a 7th grader! Hugs to all. Thank you Liane for sharing the siggy thing.. well I saw yours & clicked.. too fun.
