It seems that my house serves as a place to rest my head, shower my body, and reload my iPod, but little else. I am rarely there, and when I am it is not the peaceful oasis that I always imagine my home being. Would I have it any other way? Sure, but I don’t have the financial means nor the portable employment skill set to change much right now. Pity.
I Was Running. No Really, Running!
I ticked off approximately 4.5 miles on the roads last night. There were still too many moments during which I had to stop in order to catch my breath, or I “unfortunately” had to stop and wait for traffic lights to flip. The group with which I ran had set out to do a three-mile loop and I chose to tack on an additional mile, which unbeknown to me had a long, straight uphill within it.
After the run I gladly rejoined my companions for a pint or two at George’s Bar. I managed to limit my food consumption to popcorn and a shared plate of nachos as well.
It feels good to be committed to exercising again, however carving out time to fit it into my life will continue to be difficult.
Kudos To Good Neighbors
When I arrived at the hovel last night I was pleased to see that the fallen tree limb (see below) had been cut up and hauled to the curb. Not only that, the workers also cleaned up all of the leaves and pine straw that I tossed off the roof onto my driveway while I was up inspecting the roof. If all housework would be performed like magic by unseen elves then I would be much happier. I’m sure you would be too.
Soon I’ll Be Able To Look Through Rose-Colored Glass
As if I needed to buy more camera equipment. However, yesterday I ordered more camera equipment which in the camera world was relatively inexpensive.
Yesterday I placed an order with B&H for a Cokin filter holder with an adapter ring for my 77mm lenses and a neutral density filter. I’m actually quite excited by this purchase as this will allow me to start taking longer-exposure shots on sunny days (think “silky water”).
Now if I can only find time and subject matter for my photography.
What’s Going On In Inman Park?
During my morning drive along Highland hurtling toward The Connector I saw many trailers and trucks parked along the road. It also looked like something was being set up (movie/tv filming perhaps?) in the green space that separates Highland from Austin Avenue. Anyone know the scoop?
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
