2010 Train Calendar!

I finally printed a trial run of my 2010 train calendar, and I think it looks good! I won a book from Lisa, a Flickr friend and blogger, who had a random drawing from her commenters. The first person selected declined the book, so I was lucky. When it arrives, I'll send her a calendar as a thank you!

It's Summer. and we've been busy with family, baseball practices, day trips, etc. Last week, we went to Fort Ticonderoga at the top of Lake George, and the neighboring King's Garden, which I really enjoyed.We played Miniature golf in Lake George and spent the night in a cottage.The next day, we hiked up Blue Mountain a ways. Actually, J nimbly scrambled ahead of us as we picked our way through the mud and rocks, lagging behind a good twenty paces.

Yesterday, we drove to Ithaca in order to watch the All Star game on a real TV in a hotel. Most everyone else had booked rooms in nearby hotels for college orientation visits.We also visited the Ithaca Bakery for lunch and breakfast, and visited a couple bookstores.

Our infrastructure is being repaired, little by little. D replaced a corroded pipe that lead into our washing machine- no more laundromat trips! He also replaced our water tank and more corroded pipes in the cellar, no more stuttering on/off of the water pump. I even negotiated a deal for a new satellite radio complete with car attached. I think I'll like my Hyundai Elantra!

Off to another baseball game.

AHh, thank you so much! I can't wait. Hubby will love it too. I haven't had a chance to get to the post office, but I will and will get that book off to you soon! :)
