five things, july 30 edition

1. I think this is the worst thunderstorm, with the most flooding, that we've ever seen.

4. I think I need a project.
5. I think this is wonderful. Or dangerous...

5 things I think I think and some things I know

A semi-regular to regular Friday feature to wind down my thoughts of the week (semi-regular because, let's face it, how good am I at adhering to a schedule?). Hat tip to Peter King of MMQB.


1. I think summer is my favorite season.
2. I think I live in my head too much.
3. I think I need to live more where I live.
4. I know I love cool showers after a day at the beach.
5. I know I want a new basket for my bike.
