What a great couple of days I've had! After months of trying to decide on a digital camera, I finally bought one yesterday. It's a Canon PowerShot S2IS, and I am in love with it. My biggest photo challenge was taking pictures in the low-light conditions of my home, but this camera just kicks butt! From clear across the room, I took a flash photo of a clock and a hanging plant. You can read the numbers and even see the minute marks on the clock. And you can see dust on the plant, which I hadn't noticed until I saw it on the photo. I took a picture of my daughter's Yorkie and you can read her name and phone number on his tag. Too cool!
Also, I'm off work today, thanks to all the Mardi Gras celebrations going on, and the weather is beautiful. This is the first time in a month we've had pleasant, dry weather on a non-workday, so I was able to get outside and stain all the quarter-round trim that my son-in-law will put down for me soon. One more thing checked off my list.
This week is TV heaven: Tonight is The Bachelor finale and the season premiere of The Apprentice, then tomorrow night The Amazing Race kicks off a new season. Add in three nights of American Idol and I'm just as happy as a pig in...well, you know. I wish there was a computer program that would help me figure out which shows to watch and which ones to tape in order to view everything in the least amount of time. I'd buy it.
One more thing: I've just discovered that the reason there's so much detail in the photos I described earlier is that each photo file is about 1.5 megabytes in size. Huge! I'll have to go through and resize all the photos I've taken so far. In the meantime, here are these of goofy Butch sleeping on the futon and Kadi enjoying the sunshine.
