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? ;)

    I am so impressed! Esp with gar­den­ing stuff — I’m going to try that when we start get­ting organ­ic veg box­es again… And am well impressed with your sewing project! I real­ly should stop bitch­ing about our cur­tains and take a leaf from your book… When I pro­cras­ti­nate, I actu­al­ly grow mould…like a sloth.

    I grow to make me feel bet­ter about all the plants I man­aged to kill.

    I have an Epson 4990 and it’s a good scan­ner, but I haven’t tried scan­ning film yet. I say yet, because I just found out that the 1 hour pho­to place around the cor­ner can process 120 film. I nev­er would have thought they would. but I stopped in to ask that sil­ly ques­tion. It turns out it wasn’t so sil­ly after all.
    I’m now just wait­ing for the week­end.

    I real­ly like your site, and I like Feist a lot too!
    I was won­der­ing what plu­g­in or soft­ware you use to cre­ate your quizzes… I like them a LOT but can’t fig­ure out how to make some for my own site.
    Can you help me out?
    Thanks, Brad

    how do you like the scan­ner? I’m in the mar­ket myself and find­ing it hard to make a deci­sion .. of course the fact that I also need a new print­er isn’t help­ing, nor are my cam­era acces­sories wish­es .. oh well.
