Linking up with Masha at Piękno!
Today I am . . .
Feeling . . . drowsy from a late night and an early morning. This offspring of mine is allergic to long expanses of sleep, which is difficult because I am the exact opposite. Also, I slept wrong or something because there's a strained muscle in the deep jointed area between my neck and my shoulder. It's a reoccurring injury. Hm.
Seeing . . . dark clouds gathering in counsel, deciding when and where to rain.
Smelling . . . an Avon perfume my coworker sweetly bought me for my birthday. It was so unexpected and touching!
Tasting . . . iced coffee with milk and sugar, a perfect summer treat!
Listening . . . to the Squirt enthusiastically demolish a Styrofoam take-home box from our little date two days ago.
Grateful . . . to learn at least part of my blurry photo problem has nothing to do with me. I have an old Rebel TX, not even a Rebel TXi, and it only has 12 megapixels. Bought it in 2006 or so, and since technology has a very short life-span, that's incredibly outdated. Good DSLR cameras (digital professional cameras, I guess) have 18 to 20 megapixels. So when I enlarge my photos, they're not going to look as clear as others' who have more recent and/or expensive models. Makes me feel better. I knew that I couldn't have got worse at shooting photography since switching from film to digital.
On the other hand, a new camera body will cost upwards of $500. *faint*
Reading . . . Michael O'Brien's A Landscape with Dragons. His name has come up in conversation during the Harry Potter book club, so I dug up his book to refersh my memory about what I did and didn't like about what he had to say. I have no knowledge of his writing on the subject of Harry Potter himself, but I am told, and it would match the rest of his conclusions, that Harry = very bad.
And by reading I mean skimming over a few pages in the near-dark at night before I fall asleep.
Also Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, but that's a given.
Loving . . . my most recent copy of Soul Gardening. Still.
Hoping . . . for less work hours in the the upcoming weeks to spend time with my family!
