busy busy busy.

the past week or so has been pretty busy. i'm staying occupied. housework is lacking. my to list keeps getting bigger with no sign of being anywhere close to done.

i had an impromptu photoshoot tonight. i'm indifferent about the outcome of the photos. i'll post a couple of them tomorrow. right now i'm tired.

tomorrow will have a decent photo update with portraits i've been working on. i want to do more.

there's not enough time in a day.

one night in athens is not enough. i need to fix my schedule where i can spend at least 36 hours in athens rather than less than 24. this weekend was a tease.

just a few things...

i haven't felt much like updating this, and i really need to keep up with it. i think for the next few posts, i'm going to do strictly photography related things. so, what i have for your viewing enjoyment is a photo of my niece (victoria) and my cousin (baylee).

i've been trying to figure out adobe lightroom and i'm finally getting the hang of it. this program cuts my editing time in half. i love it love it love it.

the picture of victoria i'm thinking of using for promotional stuff for my kid portraits. i can order post card sized promo stuff for less than $10 (100 post cards!)

saturday night blogging~~

yep, i have nothing better to do with my life tonight other than blog. actually, i have a lot of around-the-house stuff to do before heading to athens tomorrow, so i decided to write a bit while i eat my delicious vegan black eyed pea/salsa/rice/avocado quesadilla complete with home made vegan "cheese".

tonight's plan was to make vegan cheese cake and gluten-free brownies, but i'm not going to be able to do that. no where in this town has silken tofu, so i can't make the cheesecake and i'd rather the brownies be fresh for my friends on monday/tuesday.

i put together a tasty bev tonight with my pinot noir. it's quite reminiscent of sangria, but without all the fruit. i made a 1:1 mixture with pineapple juice, and it took the "bite" off of the wine. i like it a lot now. i'm a fruity drink kind of gal, i guess. one glass is all i'm having, then i'm getting to work on the rest of my to do list.

life is moving along pretty swell. ken will be home "for good" on monday. and by "for good" i mean, he'll be in athens and not on the road for a while. (hopefully). it's been a long six weeks, but i'm really glad he was able to go. it was a pretty bold move for us/him to make in such "early stages" of our relationship, but the outcome was really positive. things are great with us, and i feel that this only made us stronger. it's going to be great having him here with me for a few days.

i'm stuffed now. time to work on the to do lists:
laundry
clean kitchen
clean bedroom
clean living room
pack
sleep
