Day 2/7 Nature Photo Challenge

Yesterday and today's photos were both taken this week at the cactus garden at KCC. I totally got bitten by some kind of bug(s) and was itchy, itchy, itchy on both lower legs and both hands until I got home and took a bath.

Photo Challenge

My photography buddy Erick invited me to participate in a Facebook 7-day Nature Photo Challenge where you share one nature photo a day for seven days.  Wonder if a fake jelly fish paper weight counts.


K, didn't think so.

Maybe I best get off my lazy butt then.

One Marathon Runner

I went outside at around 6:45 in the morning, took a few shots to test out my just-repaired camera, went back indoors and never went back out again. I missed the whole marathon. Aiyaaaaa.

Just Checking In

How are you guys doing?  Shopping/baking/wrapping done? Almost?

Me? I'm a little bit ahead of schedule this year. I like it. I feel calmer than usual . . . not so frazzled. 

I had to put my sewing on hold because this is my sewing area. 


Guess what happened since I last blogged. My Precious camera broke. I went online to trouble shoot and deduced (hoped) that it might've been something simple like needing a new "clock" battery. I went to Walgreen's (and Longs and Radio Shack and Game Stop and Ross) and picked up the battery and a small Phillips screwdriver set. I nervously opened up My Precious and replaced the battery. Several times. Because it still wouldn't work. And I kept thinking that I was doing it wrong. But no. No matter how many times I tried, the camera still wouldn't work. Waaaaahhhhhh.

The best, best thing about owning a Canon camera is that we have a service center here on Ward.  They still have to send it away, but at least you can drop it off here and they'll ship it for you. I left my camera there and waited for a diagnosis. I got a call the next day. Two circuit boards needed to be replaced as well as the lens contact assembly, and LCD assembly. My shutter had a very high count (144,000) and needed to be replaced too. My total cost to repair: $531!  I said okay.

And finally for you, here's a funny video about what happened to a car that was illegally parked in a handicapped space somewhere in Europe.  Thanks for sharing, Ross!

That's it for now.  Happy Shopping.
