Well my whole family came down with the flu, including me, and I'm now getting my energy back and feeling further away from the grave. :)
So not much to report really. I got a new camera that Russell's dad gave me. It used to be his and I always loved it and the cool stuff it can do. Now I need to figure out how to work the thing! But it's better than the camera I have and I'm hoping it will hold me for a while until I start needing an upgrade. I might have to save my pennies though and buy a serious zoom lens for this thing and not need an upgrade for a very long long time...that would be nice.
In other news, my ankle isn't completely right yet. It still swells and is much bigger than my other one. I can walk and stuff, but if I've been on my feet all day, it starts hurting and I have to ice it. Hopefully by another three weeks it will be almost completely healed. That would be the standard six weeks for a sprain to heal. If it's not good by then, I'll assume I did more than sprain it...but probably torn ligaments and/or tendons. Then it will take much longer to be strong enough to handle rough terrain or lots of trail miles. Looks like I'll be car camping for a while eh?
Let's see what else...
Well I finally saw One Eyed Doll at Headhunters perform on the 16th of this month. They rocked! I love their sweet little singer. Go check her out! I've heard their music on a few occasions and thought they were pretty good. I've been wanting to see a show of theirs for some time now, and was so excited to find out they were playing the last night of SXSW at the bar I happened to be at! We were there to see another band, but when I found out who was playing next I though what a super bonus that was! I was not one bit disappointed in their show and now want to see them play as much as I can! I bought the cd for sure and have every song memorized now.
Ok, what else can I tell to catch everyone up....
Russell, Ben, and I, dyed Easter eggs yesterday. I bought a bunch of the plastic ones too and filled them with candy and money. Ben had a blast dying eggs, and of course he loved hunting them as well. Russell and I hid those things all over the place and it took Ben forever to find them all. He had a little help from us on a few of the hardest ones to find. We played the hotter/colder game.
Well that's all for now. I apologize to my readers...if I have any left by now...for taking so long to post again. For those die hard loyal fans of mine, thanks for sticking around! And when I figure out my new camera, I'm getting back to my photography. Hopefully I'll have a few good shots to show for all my efforts in learning this new contraption. :)
Ta Ta for now.
