Early morning shots

I awoke at 6:45 this morning to the sound of Kevin starting up the tractor with the loud whir of the big mowing deck. On an spur of the moment day off, I thought he'd be off somewhere with a boat and fishing pole, but instead he'll be working around here. I like it when that happens. Not because of how much he can accomplish in a day (which is alot) but it's just nice to have him around.

I think the only way to truly out myself on the degree of garden neglect is to show you a picture. I'm so embarassed I could only manage a partial one. The overgrown clump of barely recognizable tomato plants to the left up there would be the top of the garden. John goes out to hunt for tomatoes and it's like unearthing buried treasure. The knitting has really taken over my would be spare time.

The porch redo is coming right along. Here I sit, still in my nightgown on the threshold of the kitchen door.

He'll be putting on the floor joists later today. And in other exciting news, it looks like I might be upgrading my camera. The one I use was a mother's day gift just a year ago, but Kevin's fishing camera is our originial digital one with a whopping 3.0 mp. He says it's time has expired and graciously offered to take mine and allow me the new one. How much it will help with my shop photos goes without saying. Pam, you just did all the research, what kind do I need? If anyone else has any suggestions I'm all ears.

I've got a Canon Elph and I love it. (not to mention one of my goats is named Elphie and it just fit...) But I did do my research and it has a great macro setting that does wonderful close-ups for my shop. The shop will be live in a few days, but every shot on my blog is taken by this camera. Its Canon Power Shot SD1100IS Digital Elph.
