miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


I am a little behind this morning. It's like another holiday for us because the husband is home today and I'm not in the normal Monday morning routine. But better late than never, right? So off we go with some Monday randomness...

{ONE}  4th of July was a GREAT day for our family.  Though we got started a little later than planned, we packed up, hooked up the boat and headed to the TN River for a day on the water.  We all enjoyed ourselves so much we didn't want to come back home.  We had a great dinner and then settled in a huge field with other families to watch fireworks on the river.  Good times.  But we got home super late and I'm a bit on the tired side this morning.  

{TWO}  The husband surprised me this weekend with a new camera lens - EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III and I was SO excited!  I haven't gotten to play around with it too much and am itching to do so.  Maybe today... I have the best husband ever!

{THREE}  I had been having the hardest time installing actions in PSE8.  I had tried tutorial after tutorial and just couldn't get them installed.  I have been so disappointed about this.  But I finally figured it out and they work!  I.  AM.  ELATED.  Beautiful, luscious, delicious actions....

{FOUR}  I am very curious to see what today holds.  Maybe a movie day at home.  Maybe take the kids to see a movie at the theater.  Notice I have not complained about laundry one bit.  Since the hubs is home today, laundry may have to wait until tomorrow.  

{FIVE}  I signed up for a photography class hosted by Faith at Simplicity.  I am excited and nervous all at the same time.  People will be looking at my shots and critiquing them.  The class starts today and I already have my first assignment waiting for my in my inbox.   EEK!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.  If you'd like to read more monday randoms or link up some of your very own, head over to Carissa's blog, lowercase letters by clicking the logo above.  

Have a FABULOUS day!

    It really was a perfect day. I think we both kinda wish we'd stayed the night and taken the boat out again today. But summer has just started. Many more boating weekends to come!

    This first assignment is good for me. I often find myself trying to edit shadows off of the kids faces. And the aperture, shutter speed and ISO is definitely something I need to learn to tweak. Glad we're doing this together!

    Well, I should be cleaning and doing laundry but it's all getting put off. A day on the water was just what we needed. Hope you had a great 4th as well!

    HI Courtney,

    a day on the river with fireworks at night sounds just perfect! Congratulations on your new camera lens. I am no photography expert myself, but I have a friend who is and she has shown me pictures taken with different lenses. It does seem to make a huge difference!

    Have a blessed day,
    Kate
