1. Summer is upon us, isn't it? No more school, less of a schedule, lazy days and did I forget to mention the heat and humidity? We are already in the grasp of summer's merciless heat in this part of Texas. I refer to this time of year as 2 shower a day weather. At least. Please.
One thing that keeps me feeling cooler (besides staying in my AC bubble as much as possible) is enjoying plenty of cool, crisp salads. I crave them. My current favorite mix is fresh greens, albacore tuna, a sprinkle of Feta cheese, a sprinkle of Balsamic vinaigrette, chopped pear, and an assortment of sliced strawberries, mandarin oranges or blackberries.
What is your favorite salad?
3. I spent a good portion of this morning transferring & organizing pictures in my SmugMug account. I have been dealing with mixed feelings about blogging, since it seems to have replaced scrapbooking. While I am glad to have The Blog as a record, I still miss scrapbooking. So. My goal is to order prints of recent (who am I kidding, not so recent too) pictures and work on the creative side of me more. Annelise loves to pick up the albums I've done and look through them. She can't really do that with The Blog. However, I am thrilled to have my printed blog book on its way from Blurb soon.
4. Two words: LOST finale. Oh my.
5. I took this picture of A. this morning on our way to school. She has two more days left, so I didn't want to miss a chance to get an end of the year backpack shot. Today was movie day, so her backpack was packed to the gills with a blanket and pillow.
