I collect dust. It is a passive activity that requires absolutely no effort on my part. The dust is non-discriminating, and is content to settle on all my "piles"... SB magazines waiting to be read, my SB workbench longing to be used, CDs that need playing, books that need reading... Great blog, Noel!

congratulations cathyb! email me your addy and i'll get your package of goodies. loved the whole collecting dust! our fam got a great laugh off of that one. CONGRATULATIONS! thanks again for everyone who checks in from time to time. you guys are the best!

and now for a brief wrap up of our camping weekend! it was pretty much amazing. we couldn't have asked for better weather. after snow flurries on wednesday, we had the most perfect weather imaginable for our whole weekend. sunny and 70! yes. we enjoyed the best weather we've had since september! we roasted marshmallows, popped jiffy pop popcorn over the fire, hiked, hung out on the beach, found little sea creatures, watched whales, visited with friends, rode bikes, threw a football, played paddle ball & frisbee... and a million tiny little things that make for a fabulous camping trip!
