Ice skating. This can not possibly be good for her ankles. Or her knees. Which reminds me I need a good orthopedist for her. She is so pronated when she runs knees in feet flaring, its almost too painful for me to watch. I think pilates would actually be perfect for her but I just can’t see her having the patience to master micro movements. Contrary to her expression she had a great time and I loved just getting outside again.
These two grabbed my arm as we walked by Urban Outfitters and screamed PHOTO BOOOOOTH!
I was back in the dentist chair to get my permanent crown. I let her give me lidocaine (mistake) and had to wait out the arrhythmia, it was pretty bad for a few minutes. I swear its a wonder I get enough blood to this brain of mine sometimes. The tooth was pretty angry all week and developed some pretty severe sensitivities. I’m beginning to think I made the wrong decision in even messing with a crown that was never hurting in the first place. My husband (also a dental practitioner) believes if it doesn’t hurt don’t mess with it. Like poking a bear. I poked the bear!!!!! Waaaaaaaaaaa!
Since then I’ve been researching places that will remove all the amalgam out of my mouth so I can begin the detoxification (chelation therapy) but so far seeing guys in hazmat suits performing the procedure has all but qwelched that desire. That and the top place everyone seems to go to is across the Mexican border. My husband thinks I am a total loon.
Speaking of loons … it was Weebee’s birthday she turned 12 and she is as weird as ever, eating Ritz crackers, getting stuck in drawers left open and liking the cheese off your Cheezie fingers.
Found out the Canon Service Center moved when I tried to drop off my camera fro cleaning. Brand new facility is beautiful inside, like someone said on Yelp! its like a camera museum. You can see every single lens on display there. Dropping of your camera for sensor cleaning will set you back 49 bucks but its worth it, the only drawback they update the firmware and when that happens all your custom settings are wiped. Which then explained the next day why I picked up a dead body (as in camera), the auto shut off had reset to never. Can you imagine if I had been on a shoot? Yikes.
Speaking of shoots I’m doing a wedding in a few weeks and yes the night terrors have begun. I dreamt the other night that I was not only the wedding photographer but also the event coordinator and I was so busy getting the event right that I forgot to do the photos .. ha ha (although it didn’t feel very ha ha when I woke up.) Very similar to the showing up an hour late for your final exam dream. Classic.
Thursday I had a meeting with the resort and got to do a walk through. Happy to do this wedding for a special friend of my sisters. Its going to be an intimate gathering, no assistants or heavy lifting I’m most excited about shooting them on film. And the venue? Well it doesn’t get better than this my friends.
Friday I headed to Whole Foods to grab my weekly CSA box that frankly isn’t working out for me anymore. It never was actually. Problem is my refrigerator is like 20 years old and loves to freeze EVERYTHING so last weeks tender bok choy got annihilated. I’m loving the apples and organic oranges but all the greens are wilted or frozen within a couple days. I’m sad to end this. I really hope Santa brings me a new fridge or that I wake up one morning to spoiled food so I can finally have a reason to go buy one. My husband just can’t see replacing things that work (are you seeing the pattern here??)
Anyway when I went to grab the veggies I was STOPPED DEAD IN MY TRACKS at the sight of shiny new red cards all lined up. I smiled, did a complete 180 went back to my car fished out a couple cameras( yes I pretty much have a camera on me at all times) and set up shop curbside. I even passed out business cards.
Feeling the mojo of that day’s shoot I spent the weekend working on my store. I made a calendar and some notecards for a friend who’s husband (who also happens to also be a rockstar font designer) is recovering from TBI (traumatic brain injury) you may remember me talking about it in Week 19 his story >> his friends are hosting a shopping event so I made a care package for them. I really forgot how much I love to do stuff with my hands (other than click and type.) I happily printed out work and packaged everything up in cello and stickers.
The event featured THE CUTEST craft, a hanging planter, guided by Open House Creative << a space where you can explore the world of color, art, shapes you name it… and its geared to all ages.
And of course there was shopping. If you know me then you know I love my drapey clothes and I consider this LA brand a personal staple. I could wear their Athletic Woven Crop Pant every day.
We picked up dinner on the way home, as one would when you are exhausted. Someone had fun with mom’s phone. I’m waiting for her to ask for one. It’s coming people.
Next week I’m going to review my order from My Social Book (they gave me a 30% OFF CODE for you!!) 😀 I spend a long time reading through my past life, its pretty interesting to see how we adapt and change to conform into the social media paradigm. It has me wondering how much of what I think and do are influenced by my top two, Facebook and Instagram. Do you ever tell yourself you are going to take a “break” from it? I’m curious. I have thought about it but for someone who’s mojo is web driven I fond it really hard just to quit cold turkey. Maybe after the first of year when this project is done.
Have a great weekend people and remember …
