Spent a little of the early afternoon watching Pablo-cam.

Today was officially the first day of school for Jina. Granted it was only a half day. When she got home we all piled into the car, hit the drive thru at McDonald's and hung out at the park for a while. Jina had fun feeding the ducks while the kids played. We had to call it an early day due to be bothered by the bugs way to much.
Scrapping in and of itself is difficult sometimes. You have to have the right mindset and a variety of other factors. So when a 16# cat decides to make himself at home in the middle of your layout it kinda complicates things.
Since our zoo membership was close to expiring we decided to take a last trip. We got up early and left early in the hopes of beating the heat. However it was raining all the way there and drizzled the first half hour or so. Then the humidity and heat kicked in.
Terry and I were playing Rift on this day when we heard a loud boom followed by another boom. We got up and went onto the patio and saw a huge dust cloud coming from the highway behind the house. A few days later we found that our assumptions of a truck hitting the embankment were spot on. This was borrowed from the fire departments Facebook page.
So I finally gave into the hype and got The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo from the library. I have to honestly say I don't understand the hype. First off it was well over half way into the book before it got remotely interesting. And parts of it were overly predictable. But I read it.
