Happy Summer Soltice!

I know that I haven't updated this blog that much lately, but life seems to be passing me by spiritually. Today being the Soltice, maybe I can sneak in a little ritual time after the kids go to sleep. I want/need to do a ritual to draw energy back to me, so I can find the motivation to do the things that I need to do (like lose all this extra weight). I really need to cleanse my room, and get rid of this headache that I have been lugging around all day.

As, I have found the motivation to write again. Inspiration has hit me at almost every turn. Maybe I'll find enough of it to finally write the novel I know is trapped in my brain. Here's hopeing, cause I could use what little money it might bring in.

New Post Card

I got another post card yesterday, I just haven't had a chance to scan it. Not to mention that our modem is down at home. We should have the new one tomorrow, the cable company is dropping it off tomorrow, so I'll be able to post in after that.

I have had a very quiet couple of days. My mom took my girls camping. It's given me plenty of time to catch up on my knitting. They'll come home either tonight or tomorrow.

Stop by my knitting blog if you'd like to see pics of out hike for Saturday.

Guess What I Saw Today!

I went across the dock this morning to let one of the drivers in, and he pointed out a tiny little toad. Here it is:

And just to show you how tiny, here it is on his finger:

Don't worry, we released him where he wouldn't get hurt.

I have slacked, again!

I am such a bad blogger! But I think the only things I got accomplished this past weekend was another pair of knitted socks and a sinus infection! I spent most of Friday evening at Miss Tammi's house. We watched White Noise and Man on Fire. I have seen White Noise before, and I picked up things I didn't notice the first time around. I had never seen Man on Fire, cause I'm just not that into Denzel Washington. Don't get me wrong, he's a great actor, maybe it's just because I never really got into the movies that he has been in. But, Man on Fire was a good movie. On Saturday, I slept in until 10 am, but only because I was up at 5 am, sicker than a dog. At around noon, I went back to Tammi's and we went to the Ohio Historcial Society for more research. Then I spent part of the afternoon at her house, finishing off the sock I was working on Friday. Then the girls and I went home and watched X-Men 1 & 2 for the rest of the evening, and I casted on for another pair of socks (I just can't seem to stop knitting socks). On Sunday, I woke up with a sore throat and my stomach was killing me. But, I made pasta salad and went back to Tammi's for our Sunday cookout, which turned out to just be Sunday dinner. But, that was my weekend.

I still haven't heard from Miss Rachel. I am starting to worry about her. Maybe I'll call her tonight and see how she is doing.
