Yesterday Was Simply Wonderful

True story.

My first photography class was in the morning.
And we learned about the exact thing that I most wanted to learn about.  And then I practiced it all day long.

I got my hair cut.
Every single one of them, actually.  

I had it all chopped off.  It’s pretty drastic, but I wanted short hair, so I did it.  I can’t believe how a thing as simple as your hair style can make you feel so different!  Maybe it’s just that I feel brave and bold for doing something that I knew could be completely and utterly disastrous.  

It’s shocking, but not a disaster.  I like it.

I spent the rest of the day at my sister’s new house.
It’s lovely.  The house backs to a lake, and we spent lots of time outdoors in breezy, beautiful weather. There were ducks and geese, and they fed me dinner (my sister and brother-in-law fed me, not the geese).  And did I mention there was water?  It was peaceful and pretty, and I do so love spending time with my family.  

I finished up my Treasure Island book on audio on the way home, where I arrived relaxed and happy and content and all things satisfied and good.

I’m gonna try out WordPress’ slideshow feature:

  4. Ohhh, Allison is ADORABLE!

    And I love that photo with the blue flowers. 🙂

    • I took so many pictures of that blue flower! I really thought it was pretty, too – but so little in real life. And thank you, I think she’s cute, too.

  5. You just can’t keep a kid out of water. Can you believe it, naked outdoors in March! Your sister is lucky to have you to take such great photos of her children.

    • That kid loves to be naked no matter what time of year it is! And you’re right about the water – she calls it Swan Lake 🙂 We all love the water, really. But I’m not swimming in Swan Lake. *shudder*

    • It’s a numbers game really; I took over 800 photos on Tuesday, and believe me, many (many, many) did not turn out as well as I’d have liked.
