Photography and Mama news

I've started yet another project, but it's a good one!

I'm trying to work on taking better photos!

Here's the link!!!

I'm hoping that I get better and better, and can take superb pictures of my family. I love having a DSLR, but I know that I have to really learn the "proper" way to take photos. :)

All's well out here in our neck of the woods. The lil one just turned 6 months, and I can't figure out where half a year went! It seems so fast that they grow up.

On Monday the older one starts preschool here in Oz, and she will be in school every day! EVERY.DAY.!!! (WOOOOHOOOOO!!) I think she really needs it, as I think she needs an outlet that's not about her sister or being mad at D and me because we have to take care of little sister. I think she'll adjust, just needs time. Lil S is really excited and totally LOVES her teacher whoms she runs up to and hugs each time she sees her!

Can't wait to see the pictures I get for her first day of school!

Hope everyone out there is having a good year so far!

Weather Haiku

(a view of the Todd River here in Central Australia flowing for the first time in 2010 - Picture taken by D)

There has been a flurry of insane weather activity across the globe.. with colder than average temps across North America.. and lotsa rain here in Central Australia... So I got inspired and asked my friends (they are the initials below) on FaceBook to give me a glimpse into their weather via a haiku.


And if you'd like to submit one, add one in the comments (I do moderate comments, so be nice) :)

My Haiku :

Rainy days are cool
Too many hot days are foul
Drops that cleanse the soul

Beer you are so good
I drink you when it's raining
and all other times.

Fog lowers her veil
the calm before the cold gale
Time for one more ale

I love rainy days
Few and far between they are
Enjoying the treat

A winter snow falls
Not really but in my heart.
Glad be the penguins.

Sun where have you gone?
Clouds rolled in and snubbed you out.
Now its cold and dark.
