Happy Thoughts

I’m breathing better. Yay!

Got a new camera bag that will also hold my laptop. Now travel will require one less bag. And, I can actually fit my purse in one of the compartments. Color me thrilled. I probably should have spent the extra $40 on the bag that was slightly larger, but this one will help me to pack a bit lighter no matter how near or far I roam. Best part is that when I go hiking (yes, I’m slowly getting back into it), I have a bag that will sit where it’s supposed to: center of my back.

Roast beef is good.

Miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups rock. The minis have the absolute perfect chocolate to peanut butter ratio.

I entered a photo in my meetup group’s monthly challenge for the first time. I find out tomorrow if anyone liked it.

A friend of mine used me as a model for a shoot last week. He’s almost done with the photos and I’m actually very excited about seeing them.

Another friend needed a model for a class assignment this last Sunday (before my unfortunate food adventure). I was that model. I think I taught him more than anything else, which was cool, I guess. I’m a little curious to see how the images came out. He called to say one of the portraits turned out well and was considered the best for the whole class. That sort of scares me. I mean, if any image of me is the best anyone could turn in… no no no no no…I have to get over thinking like that. I know this. I just couldn’t resist the joke.

Today I did a shoot with my friend K. We used available light in her home and got some really beautiful images. Since she’s also a photographer, I was thrilled as she proclaimed her happiness with the photos. She’s very sweet and pretty and I knew we could accomplish what we set out to do. It was exceedingly gratifying to have the results equal the intent.

Breakfast With Scot is a lovely movie. I encourage everyone to see it. I’ve never been a Tom Cavanagh fan before, but this movie made me one. I’m not going to say anything else about the film other than: this is what love really is. Now go rent it.

Also saw The Answer Man. I quite liked that one, too. Jeff Daniels’ character is very familiar to me. That’s kind of like Buster.

A Serious Man was good. I rented it on Saturday without knowing it had been nominated for an Oscar. To be honest, I loved the opening.

The best happy thought I have for the day though is knowing I get to see the kids this weekend. I’m off to San Diego to dog sit for friends and that gives me the opportunity to spend time with the kids. I miss them so much! I’m feeling practically giddy knowing that it’s just a matter of hours…

And you? How have you been?


  1. Well… got near missed by a tornado. Have a temp job that has potential to go full time, we’ll see. My feet are killing me. Other than that, not too much.

  3. I’m still plowing through pictures from last weekend. I took WAY too many. As usual. And each damn one of them asking me why the hell did I go home.

    Glad that you’re breathing better! And get to see the kids. Have fun!

  4. Mini Reese’s rock!! I could use some right now! ;)

    What makes roast beef so damn good, hmm? It’s alright, but I’d rather have a Reuben…

    I’m doing alright, glad the snow is gone (I hope), busy as all get out at work… speaking of work, we have a client that makes awesome camera bags and such – lemme know if you’re interested in the name, they ship from our warehouse in Chicago… :)

    My son turned 12 last week – that was very cool.. :)

    No, I didn’t get a new camera yet… still wanting one though.

  5. Sounds like you’ve been having fun while I’ve been in Aatollah land and unable to access your blog as its blocked! What have you done or said to upset the Ayatollahs?
