We are so close now to being done this school year!!!! I can't wait.....only a few more days. My E.A. Debby allowed me to shoot this pic of her. It is pretty much summing up how my last feel days at work felt.
Today was a fun day, lots of beautiful weather and heat. Did some yard work and just feel so much better then I did yesterday. I had a wicked headache yesterday that kept me in a state of yuck pretty much all day. Today feels 110% better. I am so so so excited. Tomorrow I get to go in to Edmonton to get a new camera. I will be picking up a Canon 7D!!! I really love my Canon 40D but so happy to get this camera. I think it is a game changer for me. It will allow me to try some new things with my photography. The image quality is going to be a BIG jump. The noise reduction is one thing I will really enjoy. Also 1080P HD video is another huge jump for me. I am excited to enter the realm of HD video. I am going to be SUPER excited to drive in to Edm tomorrow to get that camera. :)
So I am hoping to get a 7D camera. Vistek in Edmonton is an awesome place to buy gear and they matched a price for me. I am so excited. The battery grip, a battery and my WONDERFUL 7D that I have been wanting. Now my Canon family will be a G9, 40D and my top of the line 7D. I am excited for this camera. Video is something I REALLY REALLY want to start exploring and getting in to. I hope this will be a good investment and allow me to keep being creative and pushing myself to learn more. Photography is amazing and video is something I really want to get in to next. THANKS to my loving Mom and Dad for helping me get this so soon. I will be paying them back tenfold. I get to see them end of the month!!! Can't wait. I am going to be going PICTURE crazy this summer.
It's been cloudy and cool, lots of rain. It's made the world green and lush. I took this picture of a small cherry tree we planted in our yard a few years ago. It looks so green.....I love the way things GREEN up outside during rainy days.
I have to admit, this is crazy. There is only 9 days of teaching left and I feel OVERWHELMED. Trying to prep my kids for their final is a bit of an ordeal. I hope they are ready, I think we'll be doing a LOT of review the next while.
My birthday comes on Thursday....not sure how to feel about turning 37....not even sure I have time to even think about how I feel. I'll be too busy with work to notice. Age is just a number....I do know there are things a person cannot fight when it comes to getting older. So I embrace my deteriorating muscles, graying hair, poor eye sight and hearing....hehehe. Bring it on old age.
This week has been a long and hard one. To finish it off I am getting sick, a cold is hitting and not a good time. With only a few days of classes left this is a BAD time to get sick. I will rest up and do my best to survive. I AM excited to finish off this year. SUMMER I CRAVE THEE!!! -Randy
