Very random Saturday morning stuff. Mental meanderings allowed by a still-sleeping 12-year-old. I’m still not used to this sleeping in business. Very recent tween development. I’ll have to make some very quiet plans for this “free” time.
I’m trying to learn how to use the household DSLR. Please bear with me.
I hope to get the hang of it before I go to Quilt Market. (See you there??)
And I’ve added these because the outdoors at the front of my house approximates the convention center lighting conditions?
Have to start somewhere, I guess.
I believe I captured Pepper’s earnestness.
I may not get the hang of it but I do know my camera will have a stylish camera strap. After I make it one.
I’m taking along my old point and shoot camera just in case. Does that mean I have to take two pictures of everything with two different cameras just in case??
Speaking of travel. I miss Dan. I miss Dan’s silver Delta frequent flyer status. The free checked bag, the getting on the plane right before the general cattle call. It’s the little things sometimes. I’m sure I will survive.
What are your weekend plans? No soccer game for us this weekend. Which works out because it’s supposed to rain the whole time. Which also means we can’t do anything fun outdoors with our free weekend. Because I would surely melt. Or freeze. But we are going to see Regina Spektor tonight. I’m sure it will be warm and cozy. Strangely enough, when I was going through the DSLR camera case this week, I found a bag of ear plugs. These would have been from a music festival Dan took the kiddo to. How handy! Taking them along to the concert tonight.
I do find it strange that in the last year, I have found things like the ear plugs just when I’ve needed them. They wouldn’t have been things — various paperwork, for example — on my radar at any point before and weren’t part of my household job description previously. I just think it’s goodly strange.
Here’s a couple of quilt photos just to randomly round things out.
Oh, and the Bleachers quilt which now just needs the binding sewn down.
I have been calling this quilt Dear Stella, Wear Your Grungy Little Black Dress on the Bleachers.
Good, still sleeping. If she sleeps much longer, I can get away with brunch and will only have to feed her twice today. She got lucky too, I just found this recipe for caramel and sea salt pear pancakes.
Hope you have a photogenic weekend!
