10am / 5pm

trying to be patient until she joins me again

10am - This morning when I was eating my oatmeal, I noticed the backyard was full of robins. It looked like the leaves were jumping there were so many of them. So I went outside with my camera to see if I could capture them - of course they flew away. But there is always something outside to take a photo of - these 3 little sweet gum balls for one. I found out they make a good fire starter that burns blue, so I'm collecting them for my winter fires.
5pm - still working on my printing dilemma. I took another set of files to have printed at office depot and they are still too dark in areas, whereas on my epson printer they are just how I want them. But I feel like I am going to have to get some of these cards printed outside of printing them at home because the epson ink is expensive. So here I am tweaking yet again - using channels and selective color adjustments. It's fun in a way but its tedious. Does anyone know of a good source for printing bulk quantities of greeting cards?

I do all of my printing at Costco/Sam's club. They are dirt cheap and use the highest quality paper and ink.

I know a friend whose son always wanted to sleep with the gum balls : ) I love those things. They burn blue? That is something I have to try!
I don't know a cheap print place but I will definitely be checking out Sam's!

I really love that picture of you. It's wonderful.
