Just too busy February 23, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — amygeekgrl @ 5:08 pm

I’ve been home for two days, but just haven’t had a chance to do much blogging.

Yesterday was spent doing tons of laundry, cleaning up the house and getting caught up on various things. And last night was a ladies’ night out for my AP group. A group of seven of us all got dinner at a local restaurant. The food was delicious, but they made a mistake on my order (Mediterranean wrap with sundried tomatoes, hummus, olives, spinach) and put chicken in it! And, what’s even worse is I ate a few bites before I realized it. 😦 Ugh. I thought something tasted off on it, but I couldn’t put my finger on it until I actually saw some of the chicken poking out of the wrap and was like WTF is that??! I felt like such a tool for eating it and not realizing it was chicken. Duh. I told the waitress about it since they charged me for adding chicken to it (and I didn’t feel I should have to pay for something I didn’t want) and she apologized profusely. Guess I need to inspect my food more closely when dining out.

The other thing that’s been occupying my time is playing with my NEW 50mm LENS!! 🙂 I’m so thrilled to have it and have been enjoying playing with it the past two days. I got some cute shots of Ava today. Here’s the only one I’ve proofed so far.

The lens cost a pretty penny, but I’m paying for it using money I’ve made from my CafePress store. (Hooray for a little extra income.) It will be soooo useful to me in my portrait photography and is well worth the investment.

The lil girlie is napping now so I should go get some other stuff done. I have a new recipe to post – a casserole I made for Jody and Ava last night using carrots, Quorn “meat”balls, veggie crumbles, tomato sauce, cream, cheese and bread crumbs – that was delicious. (I had leftovers today.) I didn’t write it all down though so I’ll have to go from memory.

  1. Beautiful picture!

    I’m in the process of camera buying now! I’m leaning toward the canon digital rebel xt.

    I’m jealous of the lens!! I can’t wait to get one for my camera! Great picture of Ava 🙂

    HL – thank you. oooh, have fun w/ your new camera. 🙂

    christina – which camera do you have? i think most 50 mm lenses are only around $100 (which isn’t that bad if you ask me), but since olympus uses the 4/3 ratio system, i can only buy one brand of lenses which, of course are nearly 5 times that amount.
    and thank you. 🙂

  4. Ava is soooo pretty!

    I want a new camera, among other a new blender, a food processor, shoes..oy.

    Hidden meat in food is the worst. Reminds me not to take veg restaurants for granted!

    Jess – Thank you. 🙂
    I would love to get a food processor as well. I use my blender for everything, but it doesn’t always cut it.
    And yes, what is up w/ hidden meat?? I felt like such a dweeb for not realizing it right away, but then, I’ve only been a vegetarian for about a month and a half so the chicken didn’t seem like a totally foreign substance to me. Ah, live and learn.
