The first Friday in August is here. Where does the time go? Christmas is getting closer and that freaks me out because I have so many projects that I’m working on. No worries though I’ll get them done (positive thinking). Handmade rocks and sure beats receiving a gift card for a store you don’t shop in. I might even take a leap and bake all those yummy goodies this year.
A friend of mine that runs a Wine & Martini Lounge down the street from our Vintage Shop found this video on Vimeo. It was filmed by a group of friends during a visit to Galena, IL. Watch and you’ll see that they visited our shop. Cool.
This topic came up in my Twitter feed last night. A television show that was discussing a new breed of synthetic drugs that are cheap and dangerous. Some even causing death. Very scary that kids are heavily involved in using them. I had only heard of the bath salts, but there are so many more available and legal. To The Maximus Foundation is a non profit organization that advocates and educates against synthetic drugs. I hadn’t realized that the problem was that big.

One of my goals this year is to get in shape. No crazy diets. And I won’t be weighing myself everyday. Why? Two reasons, I’m not worried about the numbers and I don’t own a scale. I use to work a FT job that had me on the move constantly. Things have changed. I would like to walk up/down this huge hill I live by without running out of breath and using several cuss words along the way. As my jobs have changed, so has my stamina.
