Because It's Friday...

And I love my girlies...

And I got a new camera because yes, I'm going to seriously (FINALLY...really I am this time) pursue my photography business..



I have so much to learn to maximize the technical abilities my new Canon 60D, but oh how nice it feels in my hands, how awesome it is to have the ability to do wireless off camera flash triggering, and how lovely the straight out of the camera shots look. (As these are.) Thankfully I have beautiful models on which to practice.

You can probably guess what I will be doing this weekend...how are you going to feed your passions this weekend?


peace

I am getting on my bike and heading to So. Dakota with friends for the weekend, knitting in tow. ;) Riding, knitting, gorgeous scenery, good friends...my passions.

The pics are beautiful and yes, the subjects make that easy, but glad your new toy is working well for you! ;) Enjoy your weekend and your new camera. Look forward to seeing more of your work, Jenn!

Hugs,

Donna

DIY: Reusable Produce Bags

With Earth Day festivities gearing up for tomorrow, I thought I'd take a moment to post a short DIY tutorial on making your own reusable cloth produce bags. (Tutorial inspired by my favorite crafty mom blog, Crazy Mom Quilts. Produce bags inspired by running into my friend Laura at the grocery store while she was stuffing her produce into these.) This is my next step in the fight against the excessive use of plastic bags.

Our family has been making small environmentally minded changes in our daily lives over the past few years. We use reusable shopping bags. We've stopped buying/using Ziploc bags and plastic wrap. I'm trying to commute around town via bike more. I'm being more mindful about where the food we buy comes from and how it was produced. We more often hang our laundry on the line to dry in the spring and summer instead of just throwing it in the dryer. (Which is convenient at the moment since our dryer has decided to quit drying.) As we use up chemically clean…

Senseless...

Today while I sat in a classroom supervising students as they worked on their math assignments, I watched Lexi through the window enjoying time with her friends during recess. My heart smiled.

Those moments, moments of learning and carefree fun, those are the moments that SHOULD make up a school day. As a Mom, and an elementary school employee, my heart is breaking over the news and images coming out of Connecticut today. 
I send my kids off to school everyday without a second thought that they will return safely come day's end, just as I'm sure each one of those parents in Newtown did this morning.
Every day I walk into my school for work without a second thought to my personal safety, just as I'm sure each of those teachers, paras, custodians, sectretaries, etc in Newtown did this morning. 
Theories will be published. Evidence will be presented. Words will be exchanged about gun control and the need for change in our current culture of violence. I don't suspec…

Sunday Morning Silly...

Once in a while Dando's curiosity urges him to venture off the bookshelf so he check out other toys in the house.




I think he thinks Froggy is missing a few marbles.
