Unexpected Day Off

May 14th, 2009 at 09:10 am

With the swine flu on the wane, my kid is probably one of the last to have a very mild sore throat and cold. But need to keep him out of school, which keeps me out of work. S'ok, no pay, but a long to do list:

...Squeeze oranges from tree into OJ
...Make muffins with 2 overripe bananas
...Make something for next Tues school bake sale (probably will use the leftover condensed milk for fudge!!)
...shopping errands

Of the last I will keep costs down, use coupons. For example, my girl would love a few ice skate skirts now that she is in the 3rd level lessons. OK. I can sew. There is a pattern at Joann's and it only takes a little glitzy fabric and a bit of elastic to make the skirts. Yes, I have a 40% off coupon and a sewing machine.

A few things at the dollar store, ie bandaids.

And a wedding gift. They registered at Bed Bath Beyond just a couple weeks ago. The wedding is Labor Day weekend (Sept) so I am going to be one of the first to get in there and choose something REASONABLY priced before only the $500 dollar bed sets are left. Or whatever they listed.

Here's a look at my back yard yesterday.
It's not a honey bee (right?) but is very busy pollinating the apple trees, jasmine and other stuff we have growing. There were a couple dozen of his friends too.

    What a gorgeous picture! Did you use a zoom lens or how close did you get?

    Hi Kelly-my semi automatic inexpensive Canon A40 has a setting for locking in at 2X zoom (called 'digital zoom'). And then I can use the adjustable zoom button (called 'optical zoom') for the rest.

    I was already pretty close, around 2-6 inches. They are so busy on this big patch of flowers and I hold still, that I am not getting stung. It's a little scary though.

    i'm going to start using more coupons myself.
