Drove a Manual Transmission

I drove our car home from a friend's house. It wasn't far, and I didn't drive very fast.  But I only stalled once!

Photographed and uploaded the 4 new scrapbook layouts that I made yesterday at my scrapbooking crop.

This one is of Trumpet Vines that grew wild along the roadsides in Indiana.

I have been more aware of the play of light and shadow in my photography this summer

I looked out my front door this morning and saw the shadowed reflection of my garden frog.  Grabbed my camera before the sun went back behind the clouds.

I made some crafts and arts after read the book. It's fun.

Read a couple of articles about adult sleep needs

Was interested but not surprised to find that "the degree to which sleep deteriorates or improves over time tends to mirror their overall health.”

I am grateful that I don't have sleep issues except that I tend to stay up way to late and most nights do not get the recommended amount for adults which is 7-8 hours.

Watched the Olympic tennis matches

I was so happy that Murray won! As the commentator said Andy Murray finally found his moment!

Went to the Titanic Exhibition at the Henry Ford
