Bad Celery, Really Good Cookies and Summer Wrap Up

I haven't had much time to blog lately, busy on a project which will be revealed on Saturday. It's a lot of work, but should be totally worth it in the end. I hope I will be able to get my part done (and done well), please send some positive thoughts my way.

I also haven't picked up a book in a while and let me tell you Catching Fire is calling my name! Hopefully I will get to read that soon. My sisters and I are planning to read it together, leach of us will take a turn reading it out loud to the others. Could be lots of fun (or not lol), but it's a little bit hard to sync up all of our schedules.

Here's some randomness from today....
  • I Love Farmers' Markets, spent the morning at a local one.
  • Discovered, quite possibly, the BEST chocolate chip cookies in the world at aforementioned Farmer's Market.
  • Ate the worst piece of celery EVER while trying to snack 'healthy' this afternoon. See what happens when you try to be good.
Some more randomness (in pictures) from Summer, which began with cleaning out a senior citizen's apartment, a really big mohawk and locks of love. And pretty much ended when school went back this week.

He was allowed to do whatever he wanted with his hair for Summer Vacation, however this only lasted one week before I took him back to get it cut in half. I think this still qualifies me for The Coolest Mom contest.

Her second donation to Locks of Love.

Me learning to love the Barleycorn. This is one of many things from my Grandmother's apartment that we still have to find a home for.

The kids and their cousin - Amusement Park Fun! (Knoebels)

Friends raising $$ for Alex's Lemonade Stand

NEPA TwilightMoms - This picture was taken the day we met for lunch (and drinks, of course), had some discussion of The Time Traveler's Wife book & then went to see the movie.

Steamtown train museum & train ride. My Aunt, my sisters, the kids & I spent the day having local fun....train museum, train ride, lunch at Moe's, ice cream, Riverside Park & stops at a few produce stands.

Back to School

Of course there was a heck of a lot more that went on, but I won't bore you with any more. Back to school brings about a complete change, a return to routine, a tighter schedule.....sigh. But on the bright side Fall is my favorite season and changing leaves are just around the corner!
