*****So KD's step-mom lent me one of her digital cameras. She brought it over yesterday. It's a Canon PowerShot, and so far I really like it. The problem though, is that she doesn't have the disk to install the driver, so I can take great pictures, but they have to stay on the camera. Sigh. I was so looking forward to being able to take good pictures again. There is so much I want to show you: the jug I painted at the stagette, the jungle I'm growing on the front step, my rosebush, some new gifts I've wrapped for a wedding shower this weekend. Sigh. I got the film developed of JK's birthday, and most of the pictures were horrible. Luckily people emailed some of the pictures they took. Here are some of the better ones from our film camera. This is KD's brother and soon-to-be sister-in-law with JK. They gave her some pyjamas, which KD put on her right away, and a dress...which KD put on over her pyjamas. And the cutest eighties-style baby sunglasses. The guy in the background is KD's uncle. JK actually played more with her gifts than with the paper. I was surprised about that. And her hair stays in an elastic now!
*****Finally, here are some not-very-good shots of our living room after painting and everything. I love my living room. It turned out exactly like I wanted it to. And I discovered that putting the piano at a slight angle in the corner makes it seem friendlier and not so intrusive. My piano bench served its purpose of extra seating beautifully at JK's party. Keep in mind that the wall colour looks way better and warmer in person.
