This weekend I have been :-
  •  Experimenting with my new camera. DSLR's are completely new to me and I am a little out of my depth. That one term of photography in high school just isn't coming back to me. But bear with me. That is one thick instruction manual.
  • Staying inside with the rain.
  • Hoping very much that Violet's cough improves soon. There has been a lot of clinginess, much  nursing and two slightly worn parents. Not that that matters at the end of the day.
  • A Sunday drive into the forest and packed picnic lunch upon which I forgot to pop my memory card in the camera. Oh well. You will just have to take my word for it that it was a nice picnic, if just a little freezing.
  • Knitting on the way to the picnic and learning that four wheel driving and knitting do not mix. Who knew?
  • Giving myself permission to not make the beds.
  • Reading and thoroughly enjoying Spaces.

Oh poor little tacka, hopefully she is better today! I've had my dslr for over a year and I'm still learning how to use it!

I've tried crafting in the car but it just makes me carsick!

I hope little Violet gets better soon, it's hard when little ones gets sick. Gorgeous photos Tania and your crochet bookmark is very pretty. Have a great day. x

I only knit in the car when we are on the highway. Knitting and four wheel driving presents a funny mental picture.

Have fun with your camera. Lucky you!

Forget the instruction manual, if you bought it from somewhere that offered a 3 hour class then do it asap. They just give good pointers on using it semi manually, well worth it.

Looks like you have a handle on that camera already. Those shots are lovely, as usual. You have a nice way of looking at things.
