New Arrivals

So, a couple of new developments lately. One, I got a new camera. I have finally been dragged into the 21st century and am the proud owner of my very own digital camera. Yup, my first digital camera. I love it lots and lots. Itís a Canon Powershot S5 IS. I canít post a picture of the lovely thing and Iím too lazy to look up a link, but itís black and fancy and actually looks and behaves a lot like my trusty A1 manual camera, which has made the transition pretty easy. The real test will be this Saturday when I have my very first photo call with the new baby. Also? I can now go nuts with picture posts!Ö The once I figure out how to post pictures.

This will be my first attempt with a picture of the next awesome new arrival:


I bought a new couch! Weíve had nothing other than this poor, tired, 70s-riffic burnt orange loveseat the whole time Iíve lived here (a few roommates had additional sofas, but they never stayed for very long) and it was just time for that poor thing to be put out to pasture. It had lived a good, long life before we found it on the street corner and it served us well here for another seven years but I just couldnít take it anymore. SO! I am now the owner of my very first major piece of brand new furniture. It didnít come from Salvation Army or a garage sale, it came from a real furniture store. I donít know how well the colors read, but itís a beautiful sage green color that looks lovely in the living room. Iím so happy and I feel so grownup. Also, big olí thanks to E and D for helping me get it up the stairs (Mostly D, you rawk, dude. Thanks).

So, yes, lots to report, at least in new things. As far as events, not so much, but thatís ok. Bus Stop is open and Iím really very proud of it. It looks damn good if I do say so myself.

Hmm, I think thatís itÖ oh yeah, my sister had her baby


My adorable nephew arrived on January 25th at 8:30 in the morning. He weighed in at 9lbs 4oz and 21.5 inches long. Heís happy and healthy and so is my sis, which is wonderful. Heís one week old in this pic and heís already wearing 3mo clothes. Yeah, heís a big boy.

So, thatís about it from around here. Next up, learn how to size the dang pictures.
