I also have a new camera to replace the one that was lost/stolen over the Thanksgiving holiday, but unfortunately I'm not in love with it yet. It's a little pocket point and shoot, and I love how convenient and small it is, but I've been fighting with it to take nice, clean shots without flash. Hopefully we strike a balance soon. (Or, don't tell my camera, but I think I might be trading it for something better!)
I've taken on a new activity, one that's been missing from my life for about 8 years.....I finally joined the local Symphony! I auditioned last night and the conductor welcomed me right in and told me to stay for rehearsal. It was a wild sight-reading ride for my poor un-conditioned fingers and brain, (we're playing Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade) but it was soooooo fun! I've also been working practicing into each day for the past week or so, hopefully I can keep it up.
So those are a few of our "news." I really did try to post all of my New Years Day skiing pictures on Sunday, but blogger wouldn't take them. So I'll try to get them up again in a couple of days. I also have some fun handmade holiday posts to share, stay tuned!
