April 8--Just like an old-time telegraph man

I got up pretty early for a Saturday. Malida left for work at 4, and I never really went back to sleep and was up by 5, starting the laundry and working on some homework for my photo class. The rain stopped at some point, and never really started up again the rest of the day. In spite of getting up so early, I forgot that I had to leave for class at a certain point, and was almost late.

Since we are going on our field trip next weekend, there wasn't much to talk about in class other than the weather. Paul pulled up the weather reports and talked about the possibilities. It won't rain the whole time, and there will be one clear day. I am already figuring out things to photograph if it is rainy and cloudy. I can imagine a shot in the woods, with water dripping off the moss-covered branches.

Class got out early, so I wandered around for a while taking pictures of things. The sun wasn't quite out, but it wasn't pouring rain either. I have some new neutral density filters, and played around with them for a while.


The dogwoods are in bloom.

I had some lunch and took a nap. I forgot I was supposed to go to some event in the early afternoon, and by the time I remembered, it was late enough that I could legitimately blow it off. No big deal. I went over to have dinner with some friends, and Malida joined us after she got off work.

I read more of my spider novel before bed. I am about 75-80% done, and am really curious about how it will end. It's not a book I would have ever picked up on my own, but a really interesting read, so am glad of the recommendation.
