As you know, my blog got hacked earlier in the year, and as a result,…
I have decided that I need a new camera. To be precise, I need a much better camera than the one I typically use. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my little Olympus FE-340 digital. It takes “good enough” (i.e. “snapshot”) pictures, and is compact enough to take just about anywhere. I have 2 extra batteries for it, and the XD card holds about 1,000 photos at a pretty decent resolution.
So, it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that we recently moved from the Pacific Northwest to the Mid-Atlantic. We had a mild winter here, but we are now getting slammed with an unbearably hot and humid summer. The high temperatures have been in the mid-to-upper 90s for the past couple of weeks. Top that off with severe thunderstorms that left about a million people without power last weekend, some of whom are still without power today, and you can see that it all adds up to a whole lot of discomfort. Luckily, we were only minimally affected by those storms, and we’ve had power and AC all week.
Just wanted to share: My cousin crossed over last night, so I’ll be attending her funeral on Tuesday. Since it’s out of town, I’ll be driving tomorrow, and returning on Wednesday, along with my sister and our parents. Spousal Unit and the Child Units will be staying here.
OK, fans (all both of you). You asked, and I provide. Photos, that is, just to show what I managed to do this weekend. Yep, I did all this in just 2 days, including going to the store at least twice to get supplies and equipment. Ready? Here we go….
This weekend promises to be warm (OK, hot) and sunny. So, today’s the day I start working on painting those pieces of furniture for my studio. I’m chomping at the bit to start unpacking things, and putting stuff away so I can start making stuff again.
Last night, I saw fireflies flitting around the treetops out back, just after dark. Or rather, I saw their little blinky lights flitting around. I’m not sure why, but the sight of fireflies so close to my home makes me a happy, happy girl.
