Yesterday my parents left for Portugal. It’s been pretty quiet here since they left. I went grocery shopping and basically puttered around the house. I also watered the flowers and 5 minutes later it rained (biblical torrential rain). I bet the neighbors thought it was weird. The sky did look dark and ominous but you know when you think it’s going to rain and it just never does? That’s what I thought was going to happen. *shrug*
Squidge is really missing her Dada. I called him this morning and she got all teary when she heard him on the phone. Her pt is NOT going well. She is now refusing to go on the potty. She’ll sit on the blasted thing for hours then get up and pees in the back porch. So I’m not really sure what to do- off to the bookstore tomorrow I suppose!
It’s been very hot here, the rain hasn’t done much to get rid of the muggy ‘god I need a shower’ feeling you get 5 minutes after taking a shower. Now in case you think that was a complaint, it’s not. I will take that feeling over needing a cardi in July any day of the week!
Been reading all the Blogher posts wishing I could have gone but knowing I’m not anywhere near those bloggers league. I don’t make money off this site, I don’t advertise, no PR people contact me and I no writa soo good so no one has asked me to savvy/kirtsy/guestpost anywhere. So really why do I want to go to Blogher? The fact that it was held in San Francisco and Shutter Sister hosted a photo walk is probably two big reasons for my Blogher envy.
This arrived in the post yesterday.
and boy am I taking some truly crappy photos with it. Makes my little D40 look like a toy. I think I’m going to refer to them as Fat Man and Little Boy from now on- it’s what I thought of when I took Fat Man out of the box. Not that they’re in any way related to the original Fat Man and Little boy but hell I can call (or not) my cameras anything I please.
Tomorrow I’m off to the zoo with Squidge. I was going to go the the NE Aquarium but I think I’m going to save that for next week. I’m off to try to figure out this beast of a camera- I don’t want to take crappy photos of Squidge at the zoo!!
