Just monkeying around
Today was mostly a quiet day. I worked from home today because my mom has the flu (maybe even of the swine variety) and I had a sore throat yesterday and most of today. It's exactly how my mom's started, so I wasn't taking any chances.
With my mom sick and my sister's wedding in about three days, rest and fluids and vitamins are key. Plus, I figured my co-workers would appreciate not getting H1N1. I'm nothing if not considerate.
Thankfully, I'm feeling better. I even went with my dad to pick up the wine for my sister's wedding on Friday. Good thing I went. Did you realize you can only buy eight cases of wine at a time? We had 8.5 so we put the .5 on my card.
I came home to make dinner, but it was a complete disaster. I tried to make a sweet potato gratin, but it was a soupy mess. Not photo worthy or even that tasty. It was super rich and not really in a good way.
I didn't mind not taking a photo, though, because this baby wasn't even charged up.
But it is now!
I've spent all evening playing with the manual functions and shooting in raw. I can't even begin describe to how ridiculously excited I am. I can't wait to actually photograph my food with it. In the mean time — a monkey. Get it? I crack myself up sometimes.
