drying / dried
solo post - L Nikon coolpix 990
Taylor took her camera back to school with her so I am back to using my old (1996) Nikon 990. It's a great camera - I won it back when it was one of the best digital cameras made. But I was getting rather fond of using the D40x and especially with the 200mm lens.
This weekend we had perfect spring weather - cool breezes and warm sun. I enjoyed the time outside working in the yard. I dug a hole to plant a butterfly bush, I raked old leaves away from the gardenia and hydrangea plants and pulled old dried stalks away from the flowers down by the creek, and best of all enjoyed reading in the hammock. But even when the weather is nice outside, inside chores have to be done too. I couldn't bear to break away from the sunlight so I stood in the kitchen window light, hand washing dishes instead of simply putting then in the dishwasher.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
