A Book

Originally uploaded by SheReads
I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last Tuesday. Don't worry I won't mention anything that will spoil it for those of you who haven't finished yet. In the past week, I have seen people at the park reading, people in the campsite next to ours reading, people carrying earlier books in the series. It amazes me and makes me wonderfully happy that a series of books has gotten so many people excited about reading. I hope that this is not isolated to the Harry Potter Series and that other books get the world excited about reading. Who would have thought before Harry Potter that there would be midnight releases of a book?! I sure wouldn't have guessed it and I love to read.

The photo collage is part of my 365 day project from the day Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows arrived. Yes, I am wearing a witch's hat on my front stoop and yes, my mailman caught me! He even skipped my neighbor's house to give me my mail first. He said that he had 20 copies to deliver on his route alone and he has to walk! I have ordered the last three books from Amazon because they guarantee delivery on the release date. The boxes all have made me laugh and I can only imagine what the post office looked like on Friday night with the piles of books in their special boxes. On Saturday, July 21st I enjoyed a relaxing afternoon of reading in Riverside Park with a couple of friends. The weather couldn't have been more perfect!

I look forward to discussing the the book with all of you as you finish it. And if you haven't read any of the Harry Potter books I strongly recommend that you try--they are wonderfully written, entertaining and just plain good! Happy Reading!

In Case You Have Missed It

I am doing a fun project this year. I am taking a self-portrait everyday for 365 days, a year. I have been doing it for 19 days. This will give you a taste of what I have done so far. If you would like to see what I am doing every day you can visit my Photo Blog--She Shoots...Photographs or you can visit Flickr. I would love to hear your comments or ideas, feel free to comment here, on my photo blog or on Flickr.

Cameron's 10th Birthday 07/07/07

Although we celebrated with him on 07/06/07 his actual birthday was on 07/07/07 and he was born you guessed it 07/07/97. Yes, I am almost 20 years older then he is. You are probably thinking lets just get to the pictures. Enjoy!

Road Trip--Kansas Trip

We took a quick road trip to Kansas City this weekend to celebrate our anniversary and check Kansas off of our list of places to stay. We caught a Royals game today and experienced Riverfest Kansas City style. We all so had great food. Kansas City is known for its barbaque--and we tried what is said to be the best @ Arthur Bryant's Barbaque. We also picked up Chipotle burritos to go and tailgated outside Kauffman Field. Because we were one of the 1st 20,000 fans we received baseball hats.

Well, I tried, but was unsuccessful--we did not go anywhere that sold postcards. I'm sorry! Soooo.... this is your virtual postcard, you could say it is even better then a regular one because we are "on" it!
