Things to be thrilled about

  • just received this lens
  • scored several viewfinder cameras on ebay for under $10
  • rummage season is around the corner
  • some days, when the temperature is like over 35 I've been going for bike rides
  • my mom is heading out to visit my brother in California. She's been talking and dreaming about going for years. Surprisingly, my brother is a great tour guide.
  • I'm completely addicted to downloading podcasts from the Splendid Table and Car Talk. Good listening during my crazy 2 hour commutes.
  • I am inches from finishing a quilt to show and have loads of quilt bee blocks to share too

I have the same lens and it's my favorite for portraits. The bushfire quilt is looking good too. Enjoy!

I would be thrilled too! Can I ask what rummage season is? Oh, wait, is it like yard sales? I'm a little slow sometimes.
Hmmm, I must look into that lens.
Great stuff indeed! :~)

Love Car Talk! Have you tried This American Life? That's my absolutely favorite podcast ever!

50 mm lenses are the best especially for the cost we just upgraded to the 50mm f 1.4 and I'm definitely in love.
