I drove my mom to the airport today. Seven days with my mom is definitely not enough time, but I enjoyed every second of it. I’ll be spending the next few days trying to catch up on the tasks I’ve been avoiding while Mom and I have been off shopping and eating lunch out and watching all 17 hours of Downton Abbey , Seasons 1 and 2 (Oh my goodness, we got SO sucked into that show!).
But, really, this post is not about Downton Abbey or my mom or even a two-headed monster-child. This post is celebrating my newest arrival….A Canon 60D!
I gathered up a few things to sell on eBay a few weeks ago, and using the profits from those sales along with two $100 eBay gift cards that I won for Mother’s Day, I was able to treat myself to a new camera body – something that was sorely needed. My old 40D was well loved. Over-loved, in fact. It lived a good life, but it has been done for a while now.
I’m excited about the prospects of enjoying my camera again (and not having to rely on borrowing my husband’s all the time). As much as I love his Canon 7D, it was never mine.
I guess that’s a long way of saying that I enjoyed taking pictures again this week. That’s something to celebrate. Even if I’m mourning the departure of my mom.
