My web snapshot

Here is my web snapshot from webifyme. Sort of like a horoscope ... surprisingly accurate.

I found the gym!

It had been almost a month since I had gone to the gym -- with Cinderella happening and keeping us busy, there just weren't enough hours. This was always my fear when I initially joined the gym. I figured I'd have the best intentions, then end up flushing away a monthly membership. But until last month I'd done OK. So hopefully I'm back on schedule. Two miles on the elliptical is a good start (especially with a bruised foot from stubbing my little toe really badly).

Jeni and I have started on a new multi-vitamin that a friend of ours formulated. I'm onto my third day and I have to say I am amazed at good how I am feeling. I don't know if it is coincidence (I doubt it), but I just feel more focused and mentally clearer, and I seem to have more energy. That's all very good. I hope this continues.

Random thoughts

Just some random thoughts, because I felt like pounding something out here instead of on Facebook. Facebook is fun, but anything you put there is lost in a day, so tedious to recall.

We have wrapped up Cinderella at Workshop Theatre. It ran for about 16 shows starting in mid-July. It was a lot of fun. I was working the mics for the actors, which was a fun and stressful endeavor. Two mics died on me during the run. Thankfully the actors could project and be heard. I don't think Jeni will be producing another show until maybe the spring, so it will be nice to have than break. Maybe we'll get a chance to do the other things on our to do list, like tend to the yard or read a book. (Although it has been so unbearably hot that the yard hasn't been an issue lately.) I need to post some Cinderella pictures, because we have some really good ones and I should show off the set and the costumes because they were amazing.

I'm eager for fall to get here, although I hate to say that because I don't want to wish time away. It goes fast enough already. I just love that time of year. Things seem calmer for some reason -- the season just doesn't seem to last long enough.

We went to see Cowboys & Aliens the other day, which could have been Cowboys & You-Name-It because the aliens were almost too matter-of-fact in the way they were addressed. But before the show we saw the trailer for Battleship. I'm going to say it now, this will be the Snakes on a Plane of this year. It looks so pointless and ridiculous. I'm amazed that they have based a movie on the board game. We truly have run out of ideas.

Earlier this month we went to Fripp Island with some friends. It is an amazing place, and officially one of my favorite beaches.

Baby sea turtle
We saw a baby sea turtle make its last 20 feet of its journey to the sea. I know I shouldn't have taken a picture, but I couldn't help myself. I stunned her briefly with the flash, but she did OK.

Deer on Fripp Island
They also had deer all over the place. The deer were so tame and accustomed to people. Just amazing.

Doe and fawn
Could you imagine having this in your front yard every evening?
