Take a guess

I got some great gifts for my birthday. I think it’s pretty obvious as to what I’ve been up to lately. I got some other great gifts, including the lens that I used to take this photo (which isn’t doing it justice, but a few previous macro shots posted on here started to) that my mom gave me.

I’m pretty lucky.

Great Birthday

This weekend was great. I had some great food, I got to see my grandma and grandpa, and I got a great long run in.

Today, my actual birthday, was great even if I had to work. It was a beautiful day out and I got to have dinner with my parents, grandma, and my uncle and aunt.  I’m pretty stuffed full of food and cake right now though.

Down, Out, and Busy

Well after a big storm yesterday, my internet went out and has been down for over a day. I’ve also been really busy at work, but it’s still going well.

Jeff and Liz are coming to visit on Friday so it’ll be an eventful weekend.

New Way to See

My mom gave me an awesome early birthday gift. It’s a great lens, and as you can see here, it takes some pretty good macro shots. Actually it does much better than this, but my compact flash card is screwing up so many of the photos I took today were corrupted.

I found this caterpillar while I was watering the tons of plants I have out on our balcony.

I’m So Lazy

Yet another photo from the weekend.

Yesterday at work I got an email about free plants that the horticulturalist was giving away. I ended up with two flats of salvia and some milkweed. I also got three Thai chili plants, and a few other flowers. It was funny driving home, I had a tv that Sara’s dad had given us in the backseat and every other free spot filled with plants.

This afternoon I potted some of the flowers and planted the chilis in a big container. I’ll post some pictures of our patio tomorrow.

Weekend!

And a long one at that. I’m sitting here waiting for a couple of things today. I finally called the Glass Doctor (why not, they’ve got a great jingle) to come and replace the windshield on my car. I’m also waiting to hear back about something else, but we’ll see if I do, or if I do what exactly I’ll hear. That was vague. Sara’s sister Shelby is coming up to visit today so we’ll probably be going out downtown.

Oh and it looks like Jeff and Liz will be coming to visit next Thursday. That should be yet another fun weekend.

Blooming

I went home over the weekend to have Easter dinner with my family. I had a great time and ate some great food. My mom gave me some flowers, which I put in a planter that had some kale in it over the winter.

It’s been pretty hot lately, and even got up to 91 yesterday.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Sorry we’re not there to celebrate with you!

Lose An Hour, Gain Some Light

Went home over the weekend. Had some fun. I’m ready to move to Atlanta.

Sorta Spring, New Lens

It might not be the best photo I’ve ever taken (it was early this morning and I didn’t have the camera on a tripod), but I love this new lens my mom gave me. Thanks mom!

In other news, I’m still searching for jobs. I have hope that I’m going to at least get an interview soon.
