Good morning Everyone!
It’s really hard to believe, but we are already 1/12 of the way through 2015! I have lots to share with you from the past month, but first I have to figure out how to download and coordinate pictures from three cameras taken in two states and one district.
This year, we did something very different for Christmas – we took a family vacation to Washington D.C. We were there from December 24 through December 30 and had a blast! Mark and Kayla had their cameras there, so I need to figure out how to get their pictures downloaded onto my computer. (I’ll have to dive into the morass of cords in the electronics graveyard drawer. Wish me luck!) We went to Mount Vernon, Monticello, some of the Smithsonian, saw a play and had dinner at the Kennedy Center, had my birthday dinner in Georgetown and toured the Capitol building.
And we went by one of the many Tyson’s Corner shopping centers – how do they keep them all straight up there? – where the parking deck blew me away! Each spot on the deck has a light above it – green if it is open, red if it is taken – so you can see far in advance where a spot is available.
Kayla participated in a bridal fashion show the first weekend of the New Year, so I have those pictures to download from the big Nikon. She was lovely – and the dresses and other models were stunning, too!
I have finished my first novel and three edits of my first novel which I will write about another time.
We also camped near Mobile two weekends ago and went to the Alabama Battleship Memorial that Saturday. Unfortunately, we forgot all three cameras that day, but I can still tell you about it!
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what I have been doing over the past month, give or take a few days, in addition to the regular round of daily living.
Have a great day!
