I'm Back! Well, Sort Of!

Good Morning !

I've scrubbed,  polished and decluttered closets until I couldn't take it any longer.  The house now is sparkling clean and I've turn my attention and energy towards gardening.

It's finally warm enough to get outside and maybe get some planning done.  I keep watching the weather for the lows and it seem we may be good to go here . . . finally . . . . I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  It's been such a wonky spring.

I was all set to get to work outside until about noon on Mothers Day when my hubby threw me a curve ball.

To my delight, I unwrapped this  . . . .

The Mothers Day gift to top all others if you ask me!

It sure is an improvement over the camera I have been using the past five plus years which was this . . .

Now that I finally have a "Big Girl" camera all my plans for this week have been pushed to the side as I'm eager to play with my new camera and figure out how it works.

I guess I'm not sure if I'll be around that much this week either.  I may just take another week off from blogging and play instead!!!!

What would you do?



  1. Is it a Rebel? I have one and love it but still need to learn so much. What a wonderful gift!

  2. Play you lucky girl. I so need a new this point, I'd take anything!!

  3. Have fun with that new camera!!

  4. What a very sweet present! I have the same one and I'm still reading the manual! lol!


  5. Very cool gift! I think playing after all that cleaning sounds like a great idea!

  6. Aren't you the lucky girl! I would be playing, gardening can wait!

  7. OH I think you are going to have some fun with that! Such a wonderful gift!

  8. I'd say go and play with your new camera. What a great gift from hubby. My son gave me a new Sony for Christmas as my other one was about 15 years old so i know how you feel.
    Take lots of great pictures.

  9. Girl I'd be playing with that camera! Congratulations on that gift.

    I have a big birthday coming up in June and there has been a mention here or there of a nice camera. :) You'll have to let us know what you think of it.

  10. Oh, my lucky! :) YAY...I'd certainly play. ;)

  11. Wow, Robin! That is fabulous! How fun to get a really nice new camera, what a sweet thing for your husband to gift you with! I know you will have fun with that.
    Hugs, Cindy

  12. I've been taking months off so I know what I would do. :) I've been gardening like crazy and my pots are all done, perennials added to the beds, weeds pulled. Still so much to do. I have a canon rebel, too. You will love it. It is so fun to see what better quality photos you will take. Have fun playing around!!



I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
