so I got myself three Christmas presents. with all the extra hours I put in before the holidays, I decided I needed one and deserved the others.
the needed one is to help keep my mountain goat descending as easily as she ascends. and my deserved ones will give me more flexility. one because 24 is starting back up. (not the guy, the show.) and the other is to let me be more creative with one of my artistic passions.
yes, I finally ordered TheDog stair treads and myself a DVR and new digital camera.
TheDog was not descending the slippery hardwood stairs as easily as she once could. now she can run up and down them with ease.
then, I was getting tired of missing my two favorite shows, yet home at times when nothing's worth watching. now I won't miss the favorites, and will have something to watch even on a boring Friday night in.
however, I'm most excited about the camera. my film lenses will fit it. and I can use all the tricks I learned long ago on my old film camera, but now add the digital tricks I've acquired with my little point and shoot and Photoshop.
and so, instead of taking down my decorations, writing anything interesting or responding to tags, I've been carpeting, connecting, assembling and tinkering. I'm sure you'll all get sick of the new pictures soon. well, as soon as I get a new card reader.
