Is it bad that I love giving and receiving equally? I do and I’m shameless about it. Whenever possible, for every gift I give, I get one for myself as well. I’m just so good at getting myself gifts that I love. For example, I bought myself the least expensive Canon lens (EF 50mm f/1.8 II) I could find. I’m so glad I got it for myself because it works really well in low light and I’ve been spending a lot of time indoors.
The new lens, our holiday decorations, and a post on How to Capture Holiday Lights Bokeh led to the following picture:
I’m pretty happy with it considering it was my first attempt at capturing Bokeh.
I also got to play with Photoshop Elements and do some layering with photo textures. I don’t really know what I’m doing as far as photo editing, but as far as I’m concerned, they are all happy accidents.
A not so happy accident (and the reason I’ve been spending so much time indoors) is that Put Pie has been sick since Monday after she got her flu vaccine. Poor thing has been running a fever and having very uncomfortable nights. Why do illnesses always get worse at night?
I’m hoping she will be back to her usual self by Christmas Eve. If not, I might have to ask you all to postpone the holidays until she is all better.
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
