Is it Wednesday already? My schedule is all kinds of messed up now. I worked all day on Monday since it was really busy. I do work on a 24-hour urgent care now and so the work is crazy all over the place. It is busy in the morning, then slows down in the afternoon, then picks up again at night. That means that I run out of work during the day and if I want to get in a specific number of lines, it means splitting my shift. I must say that is tiring. It’s like working 2 jobs, only for one pay! Uck. I hope it smooths out more with the holiday done and kids back in school.
Anyway, today is the last day of this beastly heat. I know I shouldn’t complain because of how bad our winters are, but I don’t like extremes on either side. I have been a cranky pants with the humidity. I sweat way more than John (such a lady) and even riding in the cooler mornings and my forearms are covered in sweat. Just in case you wanted to know that.
I brought my uber camera along for this morning’s ride to breakfast. Here is our downtown:
It’s early enough to be quiet and not many cars yet.
Can’t afford anything here, but it is nice to window shop:
This building is my favorite to look at:
It’s really well kept.
It’s quite a charming downtown. The only thing missing is a lot more retail. There are a handful of shops, but it is hard because you need a lot more for it to be succesful for drawing people in, which then makes me want to open a retail shop. 😯
I took about a dozen shots of breakfast playing with settings. The thing I am enjoying most about the Rebel so far is the ability to change where to focus in a shot instead of the camera deciding. Now I have allll the power!
I have been practicing my bird shots. Little Chickadee!
I call them Chicka-dee-dee-dee a lot since that is the sound they make. 😀 They come right up to our window feeder and eat seed, much to Pixie’s interest.
I have been working on my projects, too, with it being hot out. Welcome to my mess:
Three projects in progress – a chair, the trunk and a picture frame on the table. I have totally claimed this basement room to do all my stuff. John called it Lori’s Workshop. I am currently hiring elves, btw.
I have all of the copper polished up on the trunk now. It seems that it was covered in some sort of reddish paint, which you can see in some spots,so I don’t know if I will try to remove that or leave it as is. I like the copper.
Now to scrub and sand the wood and get this lady shining!
