Progress Report: Well this will probably be the biggest progress report of the day :p I got quite a lot accomplished since the last check in and made it quite the nice day. I went out to the lake front and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL out there. I found a bench underneath a mossy oak tree and watched the sun set as I read over half of Gene Luen Yang's Boxers. Having done so, I did what I thought was inevitable...stopped by Barnes and Noble on my way home to by Saints :p So after this post I'll be finishing Boxers and then reading Saints. While I was at Barnes and Noble, I picked up a pumpkin spice latte too! When I got home I had a package from Davids Tea waiting for me!!! If you follow Lu's blog, you might remember that she posted about this awesome mug the other day from there that has leaves on it that change colors from black to orange when your tea is hot and I couldn't pass it up :) So I got me one of them along with a tin of their pumpkin chai!!! I see another caffeinated treat for me later tonight! Here are some pics of the last couple of hours:

Also, here's my self portrait along with Gene Luen Yang's pictures for the readathon self portrait mini challenge :p

And then there's the midevent survey!

I didn't end up going outside and now the sun is going down. :( But your pictures are beautiful so they make up for that a bit. Enjoy the rest of Boxers and then Saints!
