New Lens! Happy Birthday to Me
So I turned 35 yesterday. What does one do on one's birthday when it's on a Wednesday? School is still in, you still have to get up early the next morning to go to work. I had a pretty good day, actually.
Today is my last day at WIM, so yesterday we had a staff lunch at The Gristmill in Gruene. Lanier came, and so did Cheri and Caleb. It was lovely.
Later that night, Lanier and Hannah gave me flowers and sang "Happy Birthday" while I blew out a candle stuck on a brownie that had broken, thus being left off the plate of brownies I'd made as a thank you gift to our neighbors. Then I opened my presents. A sewing machine! An 85mm 1.8 lens!! Riches! Treasures! I can't wait to get started.
Below are a couple of shots I took of Hannah in the backyard with the new lens. Nothing earth-shattering, but hey I love pix of my kid, ok?
Mom's coming to visit this weekend from Georgia and I am SO EXCITED. Hannah will return to Georgia with her on June 2. While she's gone, I plan on using this new machine to make her bedroom curtains and also get that room painted.
Oh! Oh! I forgot: I snapped a few quick shots of the living room before going to work! Here they are! We got it painted this past weekend. Love it! Love it!!
Lanier's ridiculously huge TV demanding attention of the entire room. Hate it.
My lovely flowers they got me for my birthday. I love how they match the colors of the room. :)
