Guess what I have for you today? Yes, that's right - more pictures of my food and the books I'm reading! I see a definite trend setting happening in my photography these days, with food and books taking center stage. The evening lighting is at it's peak photography potential right after I get home from work...which is also when I make dinner and read a book for a little while. So, here's yet another post about (really) the things I love best.
They say writers need to write about what they know. And since photography is an expression of the heart, perhaps photographers just need to take pictures of what they love. Eh? :)
I've signed up with several book publishers to do blog book reviews, since it combines one of my favorite things (books) with another favorite thing (free). And I'm currently reading In Broken Places by Michele Phoenix. I'll not steal the punch from my forthcoming review on this book, but let me just say amazing.
My goal as a living-on-her-own-er is to NOT eat Macaroni & Cheese for dinner every night, even though those delicious noodles rank high on my list of favorite foods. But last night called for a quick dinner, so Mac & Cheese it was. Oh how sad. ;)
You've seen this incredible woman on here several times before, but let me just re-introduce you to her. This is Colleen, one of my housematets. Also known as one of my very best friends. Isn't she cute? I don't think I could have wished for a better roomie.
Note: what exactly do you call someone with whom you share living space, but not a room? Roomie implies the same room. So...a housie??
Is that, is that, is that....MERLIN SEASON FIVE?? Yes, it is! I found a surprise package leaning up against my door when I got home from work last night and after ripping open the box like a 5-year-old on Christmas morning, I saw the face of Merlin nestled inside the wrapping, in all his wizardly cuteness (eek, did I just say that outloud? Oh snap, I did). My brother Steven and his wife Caitlin bought me pretty much the BEST house-warming gift ever. Although I'm sure the fact that they've been waiting just as anxiously to see it as me had nothing to do with their motive for getting it into the family circulation. Hehe. *wink*
This picture was taken just before I put in Episode 1...and then get no further than that episode, since the disc was defect and therefore, malfunctioned at just the wrong spot. So, it's being sent back and a new one should be here by tomorrow. Yay for Amazon Prime, people.
So between Mac & Cheese, an incredible book and Merlin to keep my company, last night was pretty much amazing.
