It’s nearly 4 a.m. and I have been working steadily since early this morning – well, yesterday morning. I did take time for Chicks, dinner and some camera shopping, but otherwise, I’ve been working on things for the Homes Tour on Dec. 2. I’ve also finished the newsletter and gotten things ready for the Christmas parade this weekend.
Sometimes I have these days when I can just accomplish so much in a relatively short amount of time. Of course, that’s because I’ve been working on them all along and am just finishing them all at once.
I’m going to have the refreshments at my house for the homes tour. I won’t have my whole house open for the tour, but people will be able to see the living room, dining room and downstairs sunporch. Regardless, some decorating, cleaning and cooking must occur between now and then.
I mentioned camera shopping. The reason is that my Olympus c-60 zoom is about to bite the dust. The door on the front doesn’t want to stay on. It’s secured with a hair elastic at the moment because it’s integral to the lens operation. I’ve been very happy with this camera, but I think I’m going to have to get something new. I’m holding out to see if there’s a great deal for the holiday season. I can still use this one, but its days are definitely limited. And you know how much I love a good deal, so I’m content to wait for one for a little bit. Of course, Thanksgiving is next week so it’s not too far from now.
I’ve been looking at a Kodak and there’s an HP Photosmart camera I like. Sony has some with great specs, but considering Greg’s experience with them, I don’t think I’ll probably ever buy another Sony product of any sort. It’s a pity – I’ve always been a big proponent of Sony – but, they’ve refused to stand behind their product and that makes me steer clear. Some years ago, an old boyfriend had a problem with a Western Digital hard drive he had just bought and they refused to make good on it. I don’t own any Western Digital products, either. Things like that really leave an impression on me.
Well, it’s time for some sleep. I have a busy day tomorrow/today and it’s starting in just a few hours.
