A few minutes ago a few straggling snowflakes began to fall from the clouds that crept over us this afternoon. Now they're falling with much more intensity. Perhaps the storm from W. Washington has finally made it to the Mid-Columbia and we'll have to deal with the ice and snow along with so much of the country. Ah well, it looks pretty right now.
I could use some downtime that a snow day would give us as I have a new digital camera to learn to use!! This came as a windfall to me a couple of days ago. My DH had been given as assignment by his Dad and stepmom to find them a good deal on a nice digital camera to take on their cruise. Finally Gary found something that was both in Sunday's Best Buy ad. He called his brother in Boise to see if he could pick one up and save the shipping charges and time, but bought a back up just in case Best Buy in Boise was sold out. Actually they were sold out here in Kennewick, so he was able to price match at Office Depot. Well, brother Jim found one and DH decided we should go ahead and keep this one as it's a nice size to carry around when he doesn't want to pack his big digital camera. This one is a Panasonic DMC-LZ5 - woot!
Here's my first picture taken with it, another little Grady gown I've been working on for a couple of days. These gowns are great for packing up in a zip-loc to smock on in a dentist office or in the car while waiting for kids. All that's needed is a skein of floss, needle, scissors, and a simple design that I usually can keep in my head.
