Hot Days, Peach Tea and Snail Shells

July 15, 2011
It has been an incredibly hot (and humid) week. Normally, as long as I’m indoors, it doesn’t bother me. This week was the exception…our HVAC at work was less than accurate. I’ve been complaining about the air conditioning for over a month. My manager and I have this ongoing battle with the AC. He comes in fairly early, turns it down (below what’s recommended but I’m not sure it matters considering I never see it go below 74) and then we watch as the temperature steadily increases.This week, it seemed to be getting warmer than usual. Since my manager was out...

I’m On Fire!

June 29, 2011
On Monday, I came home from work and noticed that our house was a bit warmer than usual. I walked upstairs and my suspicions were correct…our HVAC system was on the fritz. So yesterday, at 8 o’clock on the dot, I called to make an appointment.

Our AC was fixed yesterday afternoon for the low price of $300. From what I understand, it could have been a lot worse, so I’m thankful ...

June 24, 2011
Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” I took this shot a couple of weeks ago and finally processed it this week. I keep staring at it because I think it’s so beautiful (I’m really loving the combination of texture and use of Pixel Bender), but I have no idea what to say beyond that. I guess this is one of those times that I shouldn’t say anything at all. Have a wonderful weekend!

Let’s take a walk…

June 10, 2011
So it appears that the “slump” I’ve been in is emerging…or maybe it’s just that I have a Compact-flash card full of photos to process – either way I feel much better. Last Saturday, following the wedding…we had about an hour and a half to burn before the reception. We only knew one other guest (other than the couple getting married) – and he brought his daughter with him. Needless to say, she was bored within 10 minutes so I asked if she might enjoy taking a photo walk with me. She was quick to say YES and we were on our way.To be honest with...
