I started two new projects tonight. I can't wait to share them. I got to use my new sander tonight and I love it. Still need to pick up a drill sometime soon. I also tried a new stainless steel cleaner that worked great to clean my pots that had gotten a residue on them from burning Pam cooking spray. They are like new now. :) I found the cleaner at Walmart near Comet on bottom shelf.

I am proud of myself. Made it to the gym today. Hoping to try to do something active every day to get into shape. Things have been a little bit busy for me working overtime which may continue through September.

So proud of myself that I was able to poach an egg for lunch. I had never really tried to do it before and been successful. I tried a different method and it worked great. I boiled water and using a ramekin I dumped the egg into the boiling water and waited 4 minutes before I took it out with a slotted spoon. Also I was excited I had lettuce ready from the garden. The tomatoes are getting close to being ready.

I stopped in Auburn on the way home to get another stamp. I only need one more to have visited all the Gifford's in the state of Maine. I get entered into a drawing to win Red Sox tickets and need to complete it by August 1st. This goal is a lot easier than the time I decided to visit every Starbucks in the state of Maine (which I did do before I turned 30 ;)

This weekend I went to a family reunion and got to spend time with a bunch of my relatives. 
It was great seeing everyone. I am hoping to get more photographs of family from a relative that was taking pictures of everyone.
