How’s July goin’?

I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. It’s been on the crazy side in my world, a big part of the reason I’m blogging a bit less! Every ten days is CONSIDERABLY less for someone who often blogs daily and has blogged more than once in a day before!

David and I just returned from a long weekend in Maryland. He had a plan for trains he wanted to see while there that didn’t go anywhere near as planned! Train wise, the weekend was saved with a few choice catches at Sand Patch in Pennsylvania. We had dinner Monday night at Eat-N-Park, one of my favorite family restaurants because I love the fish dishes! I splurged a bit on the calories and had the Nantucket Cod, my favorite of them all!

Saturday was National Photo-Walk Day. Yeah, I hadn’t heard of it either, but it was a neat idea that I read about at Designs in Digital. There were organized photo-walk around the country in trendy or otherwise scenic places where p0hotogaryhy hobbyists gathered and took pictures together. I thought it sounded fun, but we already had plans, so I did an independent one with my hubby! Saturday afternoon, we took some photos in historic Port Deposit, MD.

Here are a couple of my photos from Port Deposit:

I’ll be doing some research on Port Deposit for journaling for the scrapbook page I’ll make for National Photo Walk Day. It was a fun idea and I’ll try to find out which day it is sooner for next year so I can plan for it!

We left Thursday night, which means we technically milked and extra day for Nanifest this year! Actually Nanifest started at 5pm on Friday, but since we were on a trip…

Tomorrow is my actual birthday, my first day in my mid-40s! I’ll start the day with a dental appointment! It’s not a bad way to start my birthday, really! I’m getting the second fitting for my partial. The whole in my teeth on the bottom shall be filled and I’ll stop biting my cheeks when I chew!

After the dentist, I’ll go to the BMV to get my license renewed. I’ve lived here three and a half years and this will be my third license! That’s because my expiration didn’t change when I got the new one with my married name on it. At least I’m sure that they won’t get the middle initial wrong tomorrow!

Siena Heights University, is having their annual Mud Hens picnic tomorrow. When I got my alumni invitation and saw that it was on my birthday, I had to go! David and I will go to the ball game as soon as he’s out of work. Pawtucket is in town and Mike Lowell has been rehabbing with them. The Red Sox could reactivate him as soon as Friday, so we don’t know if we’ll see him play tomorrow, but it would be cool! It otherwise will be the Tigers AAA vs the Red Sox AAA and a farm version of our first date!

Saturday, I’ll be going up to Michigan to celebrate Nanifest with family. So far I have lunch, afternoon coffee and dinner booked. It’s going to be a fun day!

Now I’m off to finish up a couple of reviews from last week’s study work and get on to reading this week’s sections!

First let me wish you a marvelous birthday, a couple of days late. I hope your special day was absolutely fantastic!!!

Sounds like you and David have been having a wonderful time. I did not know about National Photo Walk Day. I'll have to look forward to it next year. It sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

We've been rather busy getting a lot of work done on the house and in the yard. I can't wait for it to be finished. I'm at work now, so I need to get busy now. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
