I did some random house chores, though Malida took care of most of it yesterday. Including cleaning my office. Grrrrr. She just can't leave it alone. She did do a nice job of rearranging my Hello Kittys though.
I spent a few hours re-researching the camera I was thinking about getting. It will replace the camera gear I have had since I bought it for my birthday in 2004. I still have all that stuff, but I will sell the lenses, which have kept their value, but the body is a relic, and I'll hang onto it along with a few lenses that won't sell.
I was going to wait to buy the camera until next week, but there was a good sale, and everything was about $700 off, so I called and asked when the sale would end. The guy told me tonight, and that it would go back up to full price after that. So I ordered it. I looked tonight and it actually went down another $100. I hate when they do that. I will call Friday and either get $100 back or cancel the order.
My old camera was feeling pretty badly, so I took him out this afternoon and we took some pictures together, for old time's sake.
A lonely turtle. It was overcast today, and looked like it was cold out, but it was actually 70 degrees out.
A curious squirrel. I love squirrels. I met a friendly cat along the trail today as well, but she was camera shy, and after I tried to photograph her, she ran off meowing, "No photo, no photo!"
A clump of something growing in the creek. Just about this time the sun came out for a bit and there was some blue sky.
I had a beet salad for dinner tonight. I love beets. I looked them up to see how healthy they were, and they are just what the doctor ordered. I read it in the Reader's Digest, so it must be true.
