Let's see.. it's august and I haven't blogged since Memorial Day. See what getting old does to a person?? They get all busy and forgetful. So much has happened and I meant to blog about it, but I got lazy.. Oh my.. I'm making excuses to my own blog why I haven't blogged. I'm a wee bit pathetic. Whatever. I own you.. mwa ha ha ha...
Anyway. We have had a crazy hot summer out there. Last year I feel like it never got hot, not a single heat wave. We've had a couple now I think and the major one temps were over 100! Thankfully for us we happened to be in Maine that week up in a small down called New Harbor. We enjoyed the beach on many occasions and spent a day up in Acadia National Park. If you have never been there I suggest you go. it's beautiful. The first 3 pictures here are from that trip. on the way back we stopped to visit my aunt Barb in Northport and had a nice visit!
Our vacation in Maine was in the Mid-coast region- which meant for us a 4-5 hour drive. It brought back memories of driving 8 hours to Millinocket crammed in a car with a shoehorn between my aunt and mother in the front seat. I remember being told I got that lucky spot because I had the skinniest butt. Thanks.
So anyway, There was a light house at the southern tip of the peninsula we were on (about a 5 minute drive). It happens to be the one featured on the Maine state Quarter. It is the Pemaquid lighthouse. if you visit here be fore warned. the place is loaded with poison ivy. I am the only fool who managed to get it.. thankfully just a couple spots, but Goddamnit, it was on my toes-very annoying. Oh! and the geology here was fascinating! take a look at the rocks view from the ledge sticking out in the ocean.. that's right, just behind Jason who was taking this picture was the open ocean!
ok. what else... um. Oh! I have started my own business with the Pampered Chef! Which, btw, I'm very excited about. It actually is fun, and is nice to get out and socialize (not to mention earn some money too at the same time) I just had my second show yesterday, and when it cam to question time one person asked "when did you get started?" I said, "June", and they were all surprised because they all thought that I had been expecting an answer like 5 years, atleast. then I added that this was only my second show, and they were even more surprised! I received compliments liket hat at my first show with my mother in law as well. So I guess I'm good at it. Oh and I have to disclose that I'm an Independent Consultant, so you, my loyal readers don't' think that I work at the corporate office out in Chicago. and what would be a blog without a shameless plug for myself, right? (I will travel for shows!) If you are at all interested in the company or having a show please call or email me, or leave a comment and I'll get back to you. Like my pictures? I took them myself :)
I'm am going to stop writing for now, hopefully I will remember to post more frequently as to keep all 3 of you updated. more photos can be found on my web album if you feel so inclined to check it out.
Until next time- have a great summer!
