This N' That

I'm still here, I'm alive, I swear! I've been reading other blogs but no time for posting my own or leaving comments. Busy, Busy, Busy!

Maya's "little cold" turned into pneumonia and she was home from school all week. Poor kid. She is all better now, though! Just in time for her gymnastics class today. She takes gymnastics at Gymkhana and loves it. You should see the spark in her eyes when she's going to class, talking about class, coming from class...

She's actually really good, too. She may even compete someday! Yeah, I'm her mom and maybe a little biased but... I've seen her do things in class that the other kids couldn't do... anyway enough bragging from mom...

In other news, I'm still lovin' the job and thanks so much to everyone for wishing me luck on the interview and the congrats for nailing it. I'm learning so much and I love it. I'm also studying some photography on the side, I bought a few books and I'm even taking notes because, well, I'm a dork like that. I finally understand about shutter speed and aperture and fun stuff like that. Hopefully someday I will be able to afford a kick-butt camera... I want an SLR in the worst way. But I still love my little canon powershot.

Well... as always I will leave you with a photo, and there are new photos over at My Flickr Page and My Deviant Art Gallery.

Congrats (a bit belated) on the job! I, too, am tired from that month of blogging haha. And I, too, miss my SLR dearly... but I didn't want to splurge on a digital SLR, so I went and bought an "advanced point and shoot"-- the Panasonic Lumix FZ18, and its amazing!! You might want to try it out, but it might be a little too amateur for what you do...

It makes such a difference in how you feel about everything I agree!! Yay for Spring! I'm so glad you love your new job!

I know exactly what you feel, after living a few years in Boston. You have to love Spring (much more than Summer usually !) because of this Long And Cold Snowy Winter !
Enjoy the nice weather !
