Days Gone By

After Sunrise

Since the last time I posted, I have:

  • given in to the temptation and bought a Hasselblad 500C/M camera outfit a.k.a. the Hasselblad 500 Classic off eBay.
  • bought various accessories for the said Hasselblad even though I hadn’t had the camera in hand.
  • ventured the foreign world of video-gaming in order to give Troy a Nintendo DS Lite for his birthday, which was on the 20th this month (got it from evil Walmart, no less, because it was the only place that still had any in stock less than two weeks before Christmas).
  • also bought a game called Chibi Robo: Park Patrol to accompany the DS console which turns out to be the dumbest game ever to me, but Troy seems to enjoy playing it.
  • taken the most bus rides in one day in the history of my life (6 different buses, 7 bus drivers).
  • found out from a grumpy bus driver that bus fare is now $2.50 instead of $2.25 and apparently has been since July this year (obviously I hadn’t taken a bus ride in ages).
  • been amused by how mothers suddenly become video-gaming experts around Christmas-time.
  • thought to myself that if I ever decided to become a novelist and needed to get inspirations for characters in my story, all I’d have to do is take a bus ride and observe the passengers.
  • had my mango seed sprouted, and the plant is getting bigger and bigger every day!
  • marvelled at how the year fly by.
  • been looking forward to the new year and even more exciting adventures of Troy and Firda. :)

Busy Bee?

Kitchen Window

Since the last time I posted, I have:

  • got a new scanner (Epson Perfection 4490);
  • finally received my Diana+ camera (never received the pick-up notice because it was delivered to someone else’s house but we went to the post office and I showed my ID and they gave me my package);
  • shot one roll of film with the said Diana+;
  • started growing a pineapple plant out of a pineapple top (it’s grown new roots and new leaves);
  • started growing a mango plant out of a mango pit (it’s grown a root);
  • picked up a pomegranate from a grocery store for the sole purpose of growing it;
  • done two family photo sessions with babies;
  • seen Great Lake Swimmers and Feist live in Kitchener;
  • had Troy buy us tickets to see Hayden live in Kitchener next month;
  • made alfredo sauce (low calorie version) from scratch for the first time;
  • finished my kitchen curtain sewing project (made out of a bed sheet I picked up from a thrift store);
  • started writing a blog entry but forgot to save it before closing the browser window (oops!).

What’s not on the list is the procrastinating part, but let’s just take it for granted, shall we? ;)
