Five For Friday For Last Week - Better Late Than Never!

As summer winds down, I'm realizing that I'm still busy with day to day "stuff."  During the school year, I work and get my "stuff" done, but how do I do it all during the school year when I can barely get anything done in the summer?  At least, I'm finally getting around to linking up with Doodle Bugs for:

Last Thursday morning, I got up at 4:00 a.m. to see the meteor showers.  I actually saw quite a few meteors so it was definitely worth waking up.  I tried to get a picture on my phone, but I wasn't quite quick enough.  Here's a cool picture of someone who got a picture up in York Beach, Maine:






Last Saturday I managed to get a flat tire. Actually, I ripped my tire due to a poorly placed screw on a temporary water pipe.   Upon bringing my car to Wakefield Tire, I learned that all my tires were "borderline."  Now I have four new tires, and they smell very rubbery.





Thanks to a wonderful Facebook post, I learned that Mr. Sketch markers were on sale at Walgreen's for $4.99 so I bought my first box:


Also, according to my colleague, Mrs. Fenton, these are the best markers.  Well, I'm looking forward to checking them out!



My friend, Jeanne, and I went for a walk at Deer Island on a hot and sunny day.  We got stuck in bad traffic on the way due to a power line that fell across a road in Revere.  Jeanne had to do a three point turn on the highway and go in the opposite way to exit the highway so that the National Grid truck could get by to fix the power line.  By the way, this was the 2nd time in one week that I got stuck on a highway due to a down power line.






I finished an amazing book:

Now I've started to read:

Click on either book, and you'll find yourself at Amazon and can read more about these awesome books!

Three weeks from tomorrow is my first day of school (meetings).  Of course, I'm not counting, just reminding myself that summer is winding down.
