Woohoo - Look who bought herself an early birthday present! More [and better] pictures to come.
I did a ton of research. Thank you Steven for all your help and expertise! I was really torn between the Olympus and this Canon but
when it came down to it, the Canon had all the things I was looking for
in a camera - and then some. Now I just have to figure out how to
use all the and then somes. More info to come about the purchase process [and it's a doozie!] Thank you DiAnne for your help with that. And SloMo, I can't thank you enough for all of your help.
Life is still amazing but I'm a little tired of not having time
to update my precious journal. Actually, I'm getting tired in
general. But I'm resting when I need rest. Which is why you
haven't heard from me in a while. And already, I have a full
weekend coming up. How does this happen?
I have about ten minutes to update - then I'm off for another
long dogwalking day. Every morning I push through a great
hike. You know that slow burn you feel when you're working
out? Ooooh yeah baby! Bring it on. Of course, the
first few days of the week were brutally hot. Not fun on a hike
in the hills. Only brings me closer to the burning sun.
After an hour hike like that, all my individual walks are a
breeze. And the trip to the dogpark is like a lunch break.
That's when I see other dogwalkers and people with their dogs.
It's social time for all of us.
I brought my car in to be fixed the very next day after posting
how I was worried about it. Yay me. Strangely, it's still
making the noise that concerned me. But my mechanic did a
courtesy check on the entire car and said I'm good to go. I even
pushed for other stuff, "Is there anything else I need fixed that would
make my car run better." He practically had to shove me out of
there, "No, everything looks good. Your key is inthe ignition."
It was finished in less than three hours. I had rented a
car for the day, thinking the mechanic would be an all day event.
So I drove a clean car for a few hours. It was nice not being
invisible for a while. I swear, in my car other cars don't see me
coming. I'm constantly swerving out of the way of people making
left turns in front of me. I don't know what it is. But I'm
ready for a different car - preferably this one!
OK, gotta run ... I spent more time here than my schedule
comfortably allows. But it was worth it. I hope to update
again soon. Be well all.
