Confession #1: Two days ago, my son sent me a text message informing me he can’t wait to have a turkey sandwich the day after Thanksgiving.
This is, apparently, the stuff college boys dream of?
Confession #2: I’m tenatively planning a few days in L.A. to celebrate my twenty fourth birthday.
There are some museums I want to visit,
And a beach I want to photograph.
And, of course, my daughter is in L.A. also – an added bonus.
If you have any suggestions for fun things to do in the Los Angeles area, I’d love to hear them.
Confession #3: I’ve been looking at “things” for the upcoming holidays.
Every year, about this time, I keep my eyes open for items which might make good
blog posts gifts.
I like to blog about gift ideas, because it’s fun.
(And because, a lot of you often chip in with great ideas of your own.)
I think it’s really helpful to share ideas.
Confession #4: I’m buried in work projects right now.
I spent four bazillion hours yesterday doing “stuff” for clients.
And by “stuff,” I don’t mean shooting (which is
only ten percent of the fun part of photography).
I always seem to get busy this time of year. I’m grateful even though it means long, tedious, hours on my computer.
Confession #5: Yesterday, I also set up a second Drobo 5D because a large part of my life is about data storage. Don’t you wish your life was as exciting as mine?
Confession #6: I took a break at the end of the day and took Mocha for a short hike in our canyon.
She and I both needed to clear our heads with a dose of fresh air.
Confession #7: I’m a little interested in the (new/updated/improved) iPad. I “need” a big tablet, but I “want” a little one. I’m so tired of dragging my laptop everywhere. Travel absolutely kills my bum arm. A tablet would be so much lighter and easier for short trips. However, the primary reason I’m considering an iPad is so I can have my portfolio with me at all times. I meet clients, and potential clients, everywhere I go. How nice would it be to have my portfolio right with me? I’ll probably check them out sometime soon and then think on it for another few years ….
Confession #8: Dr. Painless is having a new (to me) medication fed-exed to me. It might even arrive today. It’s some sort of magic potion he thinks might help calm down my angry arm/shoulder nerves. I’m always willing to try magic potions …
Confession #9: I might have eaten about three handfuls of popcorn for dinner last night. (This is the type of thing that happens when you don’t have kids home to cook for??)
Confession #10: I’m spending a couple hours at the gym this morning because I’m pretty sure popcorn isn’t a healthy meal choice. Then? It’s back to work. Sigh!
