excuses, excuses....

I love summer, but there's always too much to do!
Living in Maine, it's important to run around and store up as many fun summery experiences as we can to get us through the looooong winter. It's the time for walks on the beach, bonfires, flea markets, outdoor parties, sailing (ok, I haven't gone sailing in several years, but this would be the time for it!), and all that other vacationland stuff.
The problem is that it's also the season when your employers want you to work more (living in vacationland means tourists are responsible for much of the area's income). Summer, too, is the time to try to pull your house out of its state of decrepitude - when you can have the windows open while painting, do outdoor tasks without getting frostbite, etc... With all this going on I feel that I should be exempt from laundry, grocery shopping and vacuuming, but this does not appear to be the case.
I do want to assure you that there has been a fair amount of both thrift-shopping and crafting in the past week, but I just need to have some time to photograph stuff (and some sunshine wouldn't hurt).
In the meantime, here are some pictures from the county fair last week. I thought the three little pigs were just adorable - is there anyone who wouldn't name them all Wilbur? And on a similar note, is there anyone who doesn't eat too much at the fair and find themself singing "The fair is a veritable smorgasbord, orgasbord, orgasbord..." while imagining they're dribbling their belly like a basketball?

I'd name at least one Babe (the sheep pig)!

Wilbur! I loved Charlotte's Web such that I implored my parents to call me Fern instead of my given name or the countless derivative names. How dare you be expected to worker harder during the glorious days of summer? Poo to that!
