Morning Routines

Hmm...well, I didn't exactly intend not to blog for...erm...three months? But apparently that's what's happened. In any case, for some reason the scene above, which is "My Desk" circa 9am this morning, struck me as hilarious and I just had to snap a picture and share.

This is my life most of the time now. Two kinds of worcestershire sauce, a back issue of some food magazine, a mug of tea, scribbled notes, my little jar of lotion of in the distance reminding me to stay moisturized. I still grumble and don't want to get out of bed in the morning, but all in all, it's not a bad way to spend your day.

I also recently got an SLR camera - a Nikon D50 purchased from a friend of a friend at a wicked good deal. ). I've been having loads of fun playing with it, and I'm pretty surprised at how easy it was to transition to this from my point-and-shoot. I expected more bumps in the road and tears of frustration, but it's been pretty darn smooth. In fact, I think I've only used my old camera once since getting this one. Which makes me feel vaguely guilty for some reason, like I've abandoned my old camera. Sorry, little Canon 620! It's not you, it's me!

Plans for the wedding move along. It was stressful at first and probably will be again, but right now, it's just fun to see little things start to come together and fantasize about how everything will be. 

The Engineer and I are actually thinking of starting a blog together once we move to Columbus (in May - Engineer got a kickass job doing For Reals Engineering). The focus of this blog has kind of...shifted, it's original purpose of giving me space to chatter about food and such doesn't seem quite so necessary anymore. The new blog would be a way to keep in touch with all our friends here in Boston, show them little snippets of our new lives (like the cat that the Engineer has promised me. Finally.), and chatter about, well, other things. 

Anywho, that's the thought! I'm not sure what to do with this blog. I've managed to collect quite a few blogs over the year and it would be nice to trim them down. Yet, I'd still like the archive of my time here. Hmm...further contemplation required.

Off to go for a run around the pond. It's actually quite spring-like here today, but shh....don't tell! I have a feeling that if Winter hears, it'll be back to bite us tomorrow.

Wow, it sounds like a lot has happened for you in the last three months! Columbus, wow! I have no idea what it is like there, but it sounds like it will be an awesome place for your guys to start some new adventures. I am also laughing at your use of "wicked"...soooo Boston!!! I hope we can catch up soon!

I love my Nikon (or rather, my husband's work Nikon)! We recently got a smaller point and shoot camera for the convenience and portability and I like it but it's never as crisp and clear as the Nikon. So much fun to play with.

If you get a cat, please let it be a good mouser that can come over for sleepovers and deal with the mice I keep finding in our house! We probably won't ever have a cat (allergic family) but oh I want one to put the fear of God into these little vermin! Right now peppermint oil and a fearsomely electric zapper trap is keeping them at bay!

Looking forward to you being here!
