Sunday, so good to me
Annie Fannie finally appears in my posts and it is about time, she says!!!
I awoke this morning to sunshine and I was stunned because the forecast was for a cloudy day. It’s Sunday and that means it is a film day because I belong to my first blog “EverySecondSunday” and we post on, guess what, every other Sunday and so this is a day for shooting film. Not the only day, of course, but a special day, a different day than most during the week because it has a certain “feel.”
My hasselblad was eagerly retrieved from it’s case along with the meter and I cast my eyes around hoping that one of the cats would oblige me by sitting in the front room where the sun was strongest (guest room, office, whatever room) and Annie did! After I took the shot I really thought I had locked up the mirror but then realized that I had not unlocked the camera! I am sure that Carl would have loved if I hadn’t been sooooo vocal in my self critism!
It is a day that is very orderly for me in some ways: Carl does the marketing for my elderly parents whilst I do the laundry, we take the groceries to their home and then, usually, we see our daughter Rachel and her wife Megan and, hopefully, Rachel’s mom and step-dad and Megan’s parents and usually Michele and sometimes other friends.
But between the few household duties I do and our other visits, I feel sometimes that I really do squander my free time on Sunday and Saturday… that I spend a great deal of time daydreaming and relaxing and just puttering. Carl says he thinks it is good because I work hard and it is good to have a rest. I think that I am a big, lazy girl!!!!
Well enough of that! The day turned very cloudy and my cold turned from an annoyance to “I just want to lie on the sofa and watch stupid television.”
So here are some digital shots from this morning starring Annie Fannie and a glimpse of Parker with a huge showing from Honor my Hassy. Oona still has not been captured for the blog! MY blog!!! It still is so very strange to say I have a blog!
