Hey there! Good morning. Not the new camera - the reason for the new camera. those black smudges at the top of the photo are not trees - they're scratches on the lens.

almost ready to make a decision about the camera, though - just a wee bit more investigating ... I visited a camera shop and got an earfull. I'm thinking of visiting another one in a different chain to see if I get any more hands on advice. One good thing the camera guy told me on Monday was ... wait till April when the new Nikon will go on sale. sweet.

Thank you for the bloglove on my post 75 Days Does Not A Habit Make. I'm proud to say I did get outside with those doggies and took a tiny walk. That's enough to count because life really does make other demands. the funny thing is that only a week ago I had begun to think I really had formed a habit - that I had quit waking up thinking "it's all too much I can't do this" ah well. It's all about being conscious, right? Being present - being here. And that is all good.

But now and then .. I do long for "Couch 101" emoticon

Thanks for the flowers! That was just the ray of sunshine that I needed to brighten my day.

I thought about you yesterday as we went out on the pier to look at things - low tide, canoe that needed to be bailed out. It was awfully windy yesterday with a true chill on the water. I wonder - did you venture out on your lake again?

soon soon I'll be joining you.
