Love (My Camera) Thursday
Happy, happy, happy happy, happy, happy.
Ladies and Gentleman (Hi, honey!), I present to you the first picture taken with my new, incredibly awesome, Canon Digital Rebel XTi. This one is for Lisa.
It took me a while to dial everything in. I mean, not that I have, by a long shot, learned everything I need to learn about it but to get the flash batteries charged up and the camera battery charged up and install the software and then... well, I took these pictures and it made all the wine abstinence and Starbucks withdrawal and the fact that I'm going to actually have to do some self promotion and sell some of my writing or my hair or something, all worth it.
My old friend, Sydney.
(I don't know if I ever explained that you can click on the pictures in my blog and see BIGGER pictures but you can. Only, I haven't quite figured out how to make them open in a new window so you'll have to use your back button to come back here.)
I took a bunch of other pictures, too of things like, um, children and my spouse and the cats and Scout. And other cleaning products. But I know that what YOU'RE really interested in is this:
The progress on my latest sock. (Which isn't very impressive because I wasn't kidding when I told you that I was too sick to knit.)
Have I mentioned how happy I am? And really, feeling much better. Life is good.
PS: Edited to include the link to the post that talked about the yarn. I should have known all of you knitters would want to know that!
Sydney is still a little tilted after her stroke but I think she's doing pretty well. And oh, how I love that face!
Back to the school for my second round of volunteer duty. Love Thursday is very big on volunteering for me.
And awwwww, Sydney!

Blogger comments won't allow me to paste the HTML, so I'm sending you a separate email about that.
Or, hey, screw it. If I can't have the camera, send the cute man anyway.
