I'm pretty sure I have the plague ...
Or a garden-variety cold.
I'm probably going to bundle myself up this weekend and plant myself in the middle of the driveway ... right about where that pretty blue bin is sitting now ... and egg the kids on as they chase each other up and down on their Plasmacars.
If I have any bursts of energy, we may hit up one of these events:
Five Rivers Environmental Center, 56 Game Farm Road in Delmar is hosting its Fall Festival Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. Center naturalists have planned a bunch of fun family activities including guided hikes, hands-on crafts for kids and plant and book sales.
