Aside from being exhausted from the day before, Mother's Day here was a fairly quiet affair. We went to early church service (where I got a couple yummy chocolates) and heard yet another awesome sermon. Came home and had breakfast burritos.
Then it was present time. :-) My children got me a new point and shoot camera. Specifically a Canon PowerShot ELPH 100HS. Most of my pictures I take are from the Nikon D50 my husband gave me for Christmas several years ago. And I LOVE it. Especially for action pictures. But it is the size of a 35mm camera and so can be bothersome carrying it to events where I just want to do a point and shoot. I will occasionally use the girls' point and shoot cameras but usually when I need them the batteries are run down or the memory card is full (do you know how many pictures teenage girls take of themselves? YES they can in fact fill a memory card). I just wanted something small I could keep in my purse for when I needed it and it fits the bill. No bells and whistles but it takes pretty sharp pictures.
Here are my rhododendrons in full bloom yesterday with the new camera:
Then we got a call to have burgers with friends. Burgers turned into a side of steak and I offered to bring my pasta salad. Again with the camera:
Isn't that gorgeous? 3 different colored peppers, purple onions, asparagus, broccoli, toasted sesame seeds and almonds and a yummy asian dressing. This is our summer staple.
Nice camera. I think I'll keep it. First I may have to hide it though.
