I love animals....especially dogs. I even stop on the street and ask owners if I can take pictures of their sweet puppies. Perhaps that is the reason I brought home my sweet Cinder. Toby and Cinder are still in the "what is she still doing here??" stage. I am hoping that eventually they will become buddies, there are no fights, just no cuddles.
I am a very impatient driver and this is probably caused by the fact I never seem to leave the house on time for wherever or whatever I am doing. Like today, for instance...my granddaughter, Bailey, texted me (young people have lost the ability to dial a phone number I am totally convinced of that) to meet her for lunch today. I love the fact we do that, usually at least once a week. But because I left later than I should have, I managed to hit every red light, get into every traffic tie-up possible. I was pounding my fist on the steering wheel, obscenities were streaming from my mouth, every driver was an idiot, definitely not lady-like. All because I didn't leave the house on time. I can fritter away time like nobody, thus the late to everything syndrome. Is there a cure for this??
I always sleep on the right-hand side of the bed. If I am forced to move to the middle or to the other side, I can't sleep.
I've been watching some of the new shows on TV...my favorite so far is "The Black List" with James Spader. When he was younger he was quite the looker, now not so much, he is balding and has become somewhat paunchy, but I still enjoy those interesting characters he portrays. The show is little intense but an interesting concept. Give it a try. I also watched the new Michael J Fox comedy...cute and The Trophy Wife...funny, made me laugh. The Goldberg's had too much screaming and head pounding for me. There just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I need or want to do. Reading, I love, photography I love, editing my photos, I love, writing my blog, I love and I enjoy watching good TV....so how do I squeeze everything I love to do into a day along with doing a little (I said little here) housework, gardening, and being with friends? Something always gives and it's usually housework.
I love Fall...that's it, I just love Fall. The colors, the sunny days & cool nights, sweaters, anything, I mean anything pumpkin the taste, the smell, the look, Thanksgiving its a favorite holiday, I even enjoy a good football game maybe once a season.
And my Friday Find is....I bought a new camera, the Nikon 7100, just arrived today. Have barely had a chance to test it out, but it has received such raves I decided to indulge myself. I have had several family shoots lately, so I saved the money I made from these shoots and invested in this new camera. Will let you know how I like it. I have already discovered one thing added on this camera that I like....a little knob on the top of the wheel that must be pushed in to change the shooting mode - Manual - Aperature Priority - Shutter Priority etc. Prior to this the wheel turned without having to press anything. Many times I would find myself shooting in a different mode simply because the wheel had been accidentely turned without my knowledge. Just a little extra something that I was delighted with.
