This and that

Photobucket

Sometimes I have an ambitious week...I plan a meal list, a corresponding grocery list, and then I follow it to a "T". And sometimes I do NOT have an ambitious week. This week is the latter, all week it's been a little bit of this and a little of that. I had a craving for hot german potato salad, so we made that yesterday, it was so good. The only part that was to be dreaded, was the boiling of potatoes on an eighty degree day. Of course, yesterday was also bread baking day, so I spent the better part of the afternoon in a sweat. The perfect counter to the heat was a basket of fresh local strawberries from the outdoor market. However, the little boys in the back seat of the van who were "only looking at the strawberries on the ride home, somehow managed to look at the berries with more than just their eyes. I arrived home to find red lips and tongues, and a few random berries rolling around the bottom of the basket. Gah. So, I made it up to myself today, I went out thrifting and got a chocolate shake.

I'm so glad you commented on my blog so I could find yours. I really admire a good photographer! I love your photography style.

I dream of owning a fabulous camera, and knowing what the heck I'm doing, someday. For now, I enjoy playing around and figuring things out with the fully automatic little beast that drives me crazy, I mean the little digital, that I use. ;)

You have some gorgeous subjects right under your own roof!

I read your post a few posts back, and I hope things start looking up for you guys.

thank you for your comments jennifer. trial and error, the internet, and a few good books are great places to start learning the basics of photography. Let me know if you ever have any questions!
