In other news, the washing machine broke down and the new one doesn't come until next Thursday. I got one of those top of the line front loader ones that does everything. Amazing that we used to get by with less than this. Everything gets cheaper (tvs, tape decks, computers, etc.) except appliances. They get fancier all the time. I think this one makes grilled cheese.
In other news, I am still reading Harry Potter! I am having a hard time staying away at night. I am also procrastinating about taking apart my entire house and getting rid of junk that we don't need. I also have to pay the bills, do laundry, vacuum the pool, go food shopping and knit. There is just no time for anything else. Maybe I'll win lotto and will have a maid, a nanny and a pool boy to take care of the pool.
Oh well, kids, who are still in their PJs and it's 11:00 AM, are watching Spiderman, the first movie. I matters well add some rows to my socks.....

And, this was the summer of losing 30 lbs, right? Well, I didn't do it. I gained 6. Not too bad, considering that I drank daquiris, ate tons of Chinese Food and moutains of sushi. So, as of today, back on Nutrisystem. Actually, as of yesterday, I started. Then I cheated, so I'm starting today. It's a MONDAY and everyone knows that that is the day that you're supposed to start dieting. This way, when the weekend rolls around, you'll be off it again and it will be time to cheat. I think one of my problems is salad. I really don't love eating lettuce. It's a pain to chew (remember, I have TMJ and lettuce and bagels are no-nos) it gets stuck in my braces, and has to be purchased and used right away. Sometimes, it freezes in the fridge, really annoying. So, I need to get used to that. I like tomatoes and croutons (another braces breaker..) and cucumbers though! My little 10 lb bear needs a friend so now I have to lose 16 lbs to get another one. Let's go go go!

The camera is packed. I am mad at my Jaywalkers and they are not going away with us. I will bring Tofutsies with me instead. It is quite possible that I will knock off a pair of socks, so, I am bringing some Cherry Tree Hill Old Rose with me, too. Just in case.
I have no pictures to show you so I'll show you where I'm going only it's where I've already been.
Lake George Village, view from Prospect Mountain., looking south. You can see 100 miles. The moutains that are touching the sky at the top are in Vermont.
DD giving a free concert on top of Prospect Mountain. She had a whole crowd gathered around her and she sang and danced!
Depe Dene Resort, Lake George. This is a picture of a REAL slide. With a REAL pitch to it and you can go 100 mph down it. It's great! Look how big it is. They have a real seesaw, too! Stay tuned for pictures!

This past weekend, we did alot. Elizzabetty came over and brought her dulcimer. DS wanted to play it. If I could figure out how to upload a movie clip, I could share it! Not sure if that's supported yet here in blogland. For now, a still... playing dulcimer with daddy.
Additionally, I was oh so very happy to find shoes that fit my 8WW feet. They actually measure 7 and three quarters quintuple E. Isn't that cute? They're almost as wide as they are long and I have to use like a million stitches to knit a pair of socks for myself. But anyway, I found dress black shoes, slingback brown ones and sandals. I bought them all up. You've heard about the Summer of Love, well, this is Summer of Spend. A car, a pool, a camera, a truckload of yarn....segue into...
It was cloudy...

Then, we had some excitement. What to our wondering eyes should appear but a ...
Then, they swam back out there and they went up to the helicopter and flew away. You can see, due to my 12 megapixels, that there is alot of spray and there is a ladder. Isn't that so cool???
As for knitting, I did bring a sock to work on and I wanted to show you the poncho; however, the new camera EATS batteries and is out of juice. I couldn't take any more pictures yesterday and I'm just now charging the batteries so stay tuned for an update on that!
I have to show you my poncho plus my new book.

In other news, I have been nothing less than pleased with my new camera and have been taking lots of pictures. Here's one of my new car:
It's a Chevy Equinox, an imitation "SUV". Basically, a station wagon. I like it. It's great for me to drive, not great with the kids. Behind it, you can see my '94 Sable that will soon be retired out to pasture.
As I told Elizzabetty today, "I got a pool, a camera and a car..It's like, I live in a gameshow!". Note to self: STOP SPENDING MONEY.
So far, I have been unable to take a really nice sunset picture to show you! I was ultra upset tonight, being hubby wouldn't stop the car to allow me to take the PERFECT shot. In fact, he stepped on the gas. It was the exact moment of cloud illumination and all the colors of the poncho as well as that of cantalope flooding the skies. But alas, he was in a rush to get home. Sigh. So, I missed it. He assured me that the sun would set tomorrow and if it didn't, I had bigger problems than worrying about my 12 megapixels.
Speaking of which, he needs to use this computer so I can't stay and chat with you tonight. Tune in in a few days to see the poncho update.
