We'll see what "they" did to my cholesterol count. It was off to the lab first thing in the morning, even before coffee. I took my travel mug along so I could have a drink as soon as I left the lab. Isn't that pathetic? And it's decaffeinated. Talk about mental addiction!
Signs of the times! Is this common in all parts of the country? Regardless of who wins, I think I'll be relieved next Wednesday just to have all the advertising end. Every day, Jim and I ask each other, "Just who do you believe?". I think the answer is, "Nobody".
Peter came to fix the leak around our vent pipe which caused a leak in our upstairs bathroom. What fun!
Maia, Peter's dog, came along. I tried to get a picture of her and ended up getting a picture of both of us. She is such a good dog. Peter said I could let her out, but I worry about the highway.
Meanwhile, back on the canal path. This is another section of the path. We are working our way toward our goal of walking from Newark to Macedon. If the weather allows, we will make it with ease. I plan to do a post just about the canal path at some point.
Proof that it pays to walk. Jim found $.44. Granted, it's not a $1,000 poker chip, but every little bit counts, right?
Isn't this a cute little boat? We were tempted to take it for a little ride, but thought better of it. The owner was standing just a few feet away.
Do we scrap more or eat more? Good question.
Just part of the breakfast bar on Saturday morning. Here is where I "goofed". We had a quick breakfast and then went back to the work room. I had to leave by 1 PM, so was very seriously working and didn't get many pictures.
When I left the hotel, I went straight to church where we had a kitchen shower for our church kitchen. It was raining cats and dogs and I left my camera in the car. Hence no pictures of the eighteen women and their lovely gifts to our church kitchen. We had posted a list of things we needed and received over and above what we had asked for, as well as monetary donations to purchase needed things. It was a wonderful way to spend a rainy afternoon.
Oh yes, here is the fruit of my labor. I finished seven months of my calendar project. As you can see, it was stamping, not scrap booking, but we're pretty flexible about what participants work on.
As I end this "Day in the Life" project, I do so reluctantly. It has been such fun. I highly recommend it. I am so anxious, now, to put it together in a scrapbook. Laurie had just the right book. She purchased it at Hobby Lobby which is now on my list of places to visit later this week. I'm going to take a rest for a few days and try to absorb what a great week this has been.
