This & That

As usual, lots of jumbled thoughts, and very limited time to sort through them. So here we go. A little of this, a little of that. Bullet-point style.

♥ First off, y'all are so sweet to be concerned for Sierra. Yes, that was a bandage you saw in the "birthday donut" pic. And no, we weren't playing doctor that morning ;) Last week, while we were berry picking, Sis had a little accident. The girls were actually pretty focused on berry picking at first, but after awhile they got bored of it, so they ran off to play with the other kids. I'm not exactly sure how it happened, but amid all of the excitement and fun of running amongst the blueberries, a couple of the kids started tossing rocks {I think it started with blueberries} and wouldn't ya know that one grazed Sierra. After we got her cleaned up {who knew head wounds bled so much!}, and settled down we could tell right away that it wasn't serious. But we did have a long talk reassuring her that it isn't "tattling" to come tell an adult when things start getting a little out of hand. She's healing up quite well ;)

♥ I've been having a ball with my new camera, thanks for asking! :) I sold my Canon Rebel to my mother-in-law, and purchased the 7d without a lens. Thankfully I have my 50mm 1.8, but I'm finding it to be quite limiting. Any suggestions on a good {not horribly expensive} versatile lens for everyday shooting would be greatly appreciated. {Thanks for your input, Suz, I'll be checking out that lens soon!} Yesterday a dear friend of mine came over for a visit, and I was able to snap some pics of her gorgeous girls. I actually have photographed them before, right after little Ava was born. And it got me thinking, that juuuuuust in case I get more involved in photography, I ought to start a photography-only blog. So . . . now I just have to figure out when to squeeze that in ;)

♥ Anyone else looking forward to Fall? Don't get me wrong, I love summer. The sunshine, the picnics, the long days. But I LOVE LOVE Fall. Just the thought of pumpkin patches and apple cider makes me want to do a little happy dance.

♥ House Update: There isn't one. Siding is taking a very long time. The End.

I love Fall too! I'm already trolling Ebay big time for Autumn time dresses for my girls. :) Your daughters are gorgeous and you've got a great blog!

I love fall, but I love winter even more! Here in AZ it doesnt start feeling like fall until Halloween usually and that still isnt cool weather!

I had to tell Jakob when someone was being a bully it was OK to tattle.

Yay for new cameras! Check out lens converters. They are attachments you put on the end of the lens you have and can turn it into a wide angle, macro, etc.

Sorry to hear about the siding. Boo.

So glad that Sis is okay! I hate when kids throw rocks. (connie gives her kid the evil eye)

Poor punkin! I'm glad she's ok!
Yes, I love fall too!! I can almost taste the pumpkin spice latte and smell the firepit.....

Throwing rocks while picking blueberries sounds like something my boys would do:) I'm ready for fall too...or just some cooler weather! We have been in the 90's forever and it is just plain HOT! You are doing the siding yourself, aren't you?!? The stuff you do yourself always seems to take the longest!

Kelli said...

Jamison had a rock incident this summer too...bummer. I'm glad she's OK. The new camera sounds like a lot of fun but I would be no help with lenses...good luck. SO READY FOR FALL...I can't even tell you how ready I am.

So glad that Sierra is ok...I was wondering about the booboo. :)
Fall?? Fall?
I LIVE FOR FALL. My windows are dripping with humidity...bring on some crispness. Please.

You know, I was going to ask about Sierra, but then noticed the bandage was gone in the other pics. I'm glad she's ok. Poor thing!

I love Fall too! There are so many great activities!

I LOVE fall too! I don't know what it is exactly, but I can tell almost immedietly when the air starts to change and it just makes me so happy!

My favorite time of the year is fall.
I can't wait to see all the fun pictures you are taking with your new camera. I want a new one too.
Siding does take a while. it will look great when finished though.

I love love love fall as well. It is the reason I will never ever leave New England!
I am glad Sierra is okay, I hate head wounds. Even when they are minor they seem awful.
