Magix Slideshow Maker 2

Being a woman of the digital age, I have thousands and thousands and thousands of pictures.  I kid you not, there are thousands.  On disk, on hard drive, in my phone, on my camera.  Stuck in little sd cards that are piled in my camera bag.  But do you know how many have made it to my photo album?  7.  That's it, that's all. Why?  Well, because everyone I want to share the pictures with is either my friend of facebook, twitter, or they come to … [Read more...]

Pretty Flowers, a rainy night and a gift from a stranger

This is a picture of Mum's that I purchased yesterday. I love to take pictures of flowers. They are so perfect! Last night was a very rainy night. It poured for hours. Both the above and below picture were taken with maximum flash and the camera facing upwards. The flash reflected off the rain drops allowing me to photograph them. I love it!! And finally a gift from a stranger. Yesterday a gentleman came into my place of work. He was waiting … [Read more...]

Our Adventure

Ben and I decided to go for an Adventure today. We took a walk through the paths in the wooded area by our house. We were looking for Toadstools, Salamanders, Squirrels, Chipmunks, and Bears and Moose according to Ben. We spent about an hour out playing in the woods. It rained a little but we were well covered by trees. I love Trees. I'm teaching Ben to be a tree hugger, but I think I've told you that already. So, we found some interesting … [Read more...]

Fungi Frenzi

The Great Toadstool Hunt! Holy Toadstool!! Ben and I had a bit of a toadstool frenzi today. There was a giant toadstool that shot up in the front yard over the last two days and I had to get a picture of it. I would bet that this toadstool could have been seen from three or four houses away.  Toadstools are kind of amazing aren't they?  They just seem to pop up out of no where. This is Ben and the Giant Toadstool. He poked and prodded … [Read more...]

New toys for Mommy and Daddy on the go!!

OMG...I am still reeling over this one. OK, so I was in need of a cell phone with plan. I've put if off for this long and I finally gave in. First I went to Alient (now Bell) because I knew one of the ladies working there. I waited for 15 min while she finished with another client (with my 3yr old ds in a shopping cart) and I walked up to her, and she looked at me and said "I was off @ 5, I'll be back tomorrow" I said " Good Enough " and … [Read more...]

I want a new camera!!

I want a new camera!!! I have great love for the camera I have now. Daddy on the go and I were very pregnant and we decided it was time to buy a camera. It was May 3, 2005. Ben's Due Date. We went from one store to another looking for the best deal on a digital camera. I remember the pain in my back and legs from going from store to store. We eventually settled on a Kodak EasyShare 3.2 mega pix. We bought it from Zellers. When we sat in the … [Read more...]
