Well, I have an iPod now. Hopefully I’ll get to talk to my cousin Matt sometime soon, since he apparently got one, too.

Last night, we picked up Aunt Margaret at her house and then went to the ocean. We chose a long sand beach, and walked for an hour, maybe more. It was really nice- the sun was setting, and there were some big fluffy cumulous clouds (is that right? It’s been a little while since I’ve studied that) a little way out over the ocean, tinged with pink and purple and orange. It was beautiful! Every time I go to the ocean I become more confirmed in my belief that I really couldn’t bring myself to live permanently in any state other than Maine. I love it here. A lot of people complain that there isn’t much to do, and sometimes I wish there was a bit more, say, acting, or music, but when it comes right down to it, I’m happy the way things are.

Today we’re going strawberry picking. Oh, hey, we obtained two plastic bags and a box full of slightly overripe fruit yesterday! It was such a provision. Mom and I spent quite a while processing it, and ended up with a monster fruit salad. We’ve been whittling away at it since, it’s so tasty. Soon we’ll have strawberries to add to the lot!

Pippin and her new kitten are so sweet. Kitten is eating solid food now, though he’s too¬†small to comfortably get his head inside the food bowl, so he’s standing on the side while he munches.

    Hey Nie! I’ve never been to Maine, but I hear it is gorgeous! I’d love to visit. Strawberry picking sounds like fun!
    Oh, and good luck with the ipod. They can be confusing! X_X

    - Rummy.

    I love berry picking – have fun! Cool about your iPod! Out of curiosity, what sort did you get?

    Aww, thanks for commenting, you two!
    I got a white iPod video, 30 GB, Enya. It’s name is Schroeder. :P

    Maine is definately a wonderful state. I sure will miss it this August when I go out to college in Pennslyvania.

    You’ll have to bring some blueberries, lobster, and pine cones with you then. ;)
    Those may be the things that define Maine for the tourists, but not for me- well, maybe the blueberries and pine cones, but not lobster!

    Oh, wow, that’s so cool! Mine’s only 6GB – and now I’m wondering what I’m going to do when I run out of space… I like the name! Nice to know I’m not the only one who names such things… :p

    Caleb will have to bring the ocean – the rock bound coast of Maine – but definitely no lobster ;-)

    Haha Hannah did I ever tell you about the time my brother took two live lobsters on a plane out to Iowa? It was right after 9/11…they almost killed the things doing a security check on them. =)
    Nice about the IPod…I honestly have NO IDEA how those things work, I shall be no help at all. =)

    Haha! That’s great, Krissy- somehow I just can’t picture George, or anybody for that matter, carrying two live lobsters onto a plane. :P

    Well, if I can picture anybody arguing with security people about not opening the box because the lobsters will die, it would be my brother, but it still is kinda wierd. =)
