a few shots from the weekend.

Which of course, have nothing to do with any of the work I intended to get done this weekend. But that just seems to be how things are going lately.

I’ve got a new look.

I was getting a little bored of the old blog design…. What do you think? Not sure if its a little too white, but it’s summer so I guess it will do for the rest of the season. 😉

Here’s a couple shots from a visit to Sayville recently.

Summer is here

I’m not sure where the spring went though. It went from 60 degrees to evil overnight. Really hot. The Giant thermometer up on the middle school sign read 106 degrees today. Thats hot. Not Paris Hilton style either.

Haven’t attempted to go outside much in the past few days, for fear of my camera melting, or me, so I’ve been shooting random things around my house.

I went over to Target today, to develop a roll of film, and I’m actually pretty happy about the processing. I don’t have any of those bizarre lines in my film that I got from Wal-mart, or the globby spots that I got from CVS, so even though its a bit of a trip to get there, I think I’m going to go there from now on.

However, all was not perfect…. The girl at Target who scanned my film onto the CD for me, scanned the film upside down and backwards. So now I have to flip everything around. I’m thinking that it may be why the scans are extra grainy this time around. But all-in-all, its the best I’ve found so far.

Decided to decorate my balcony, with some of those big cafe lights.

Been a pretty busy weekend for me, had a friend’s baby shower in Connecticut, my cat got some wonky foot infection, and my mother was over for most of the weekend.

It was nice to sit out on the balcony Monday night have some coffee, and finally relax. One day, I’ll actually be able to relax on a day off work.

Crazy, I know.

Its been super cold and rainy here today…. and pretty likely to continue for the rest of the day. I like rain, but today all I want to do is sit on the couch and nap. Perfect weather for a blog post, and maybe a hot cup of coffee.

I have a secret love of dandelions. I like the fluffy yellowness of them. And the puff ball of seeds. Its a sign that summer is coming, and that, for me, is always a good thing. Caught these fluffs on the way to work the other day, with my trusty Nikon.
