The weather has been beautiful here in Maryland and we were actually able to turn off the air conditioner today. I had begun to wonder if the oppressive heat would ever abate. But today we got a reprieve. And tonight -- well, tonight is even better.
So we’re going camping in the backyard.
George loves the cooler weather.
I love my new laptop. It’s a Dell Inspiron with a 17” screen. I can’t believe I was afraid of Photoshop CS5. Sometimes I am simply ridiculous.
Is it wrong to pretend that we’re camping?
We have the tent ready.
And I do believe that somebody wants to sleep out here with us.
The only thing we’re missing is the campfire and the s’mores.

I watched The Proposal again the other night. It’s on Netflix in the ‘watch instantly’ section but is also available on DVD. It stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds and although I enjoy the story, I really just watched it to see the Alaskan landscape. It’s so beautiful along the coast.
Readers have asked me how I find the time to watch movies and whether or not I have to tackle my husband for the use of the TV. The answer is that I make the time to watch them. And rather than watching them on the TV, I view them on the big monitor that I have attached to my laptop. That way, I can be in the same room as everyone else and while George and my husband are watching golf, or MLB, I’m happy as a clam over here in the corner with my laptop.
And I can toss Scary Bird around for George.
Hope your weekend is a good one. It’s always nice to see you here.
