Woohoooo! This is better than moving the furniture! At least when I walk through the blog I don't smash my toes on the table I forgot was there. Even though I don't actually see my own blog very often, every once in a while I feel the need to change things up, know what I mean? And since it's so cold and rainy and dreary here in Virginia, I thought I'd cheer myself up with a photo of my favorite place on earth, Destin. And maybe this will help me get back on a daily-posting roll.
This afternoon I was writing a post and tried to upload some photos, only to be told I had reached my limit. Who knew there even was such a thing? So I bought enough storage space to last me at least a year and then starting moving things around and this is what happens. Once I start I just can't stop.
All the kids have gone back to school except Man-boy, who left for the day to go with a friend down to Lynchburg to see Abbie and some other friends, so Ben and I took advantage of the opportunity to go out for dinner. I've had a hankering for a big piece of BEEF, so that's what I ate. A filet with hollandaise and a big sweet potato, and it was pure heaven! It makes me wish I could cook a decent steak at home but I've never been able to, so I don't even bother trying anymore. When I want steak, we go out. If you have any great steak-cooking suggestions, feel free to share them. I need help.
So now that I have all this storage space, here are a few shots I took of the icy outdoors today. I'm still having trouble getting the focus right, but I have figured out how to switch from 18 focus points to one, so I'm thinking that's a little progress. I also think it has something to do with my diopter, but I haven't quite figured that all out yet.
This one would have been better with a smaller aperture/less blur.
Mr. Grill is looking forward to spring. Doesn't he look miserable?
The arm of my Adirondack chair. Someday soon I'll be sitting in it soaking up the sun.
Until then I'll sit by the fire.
Be thankful ~
