My Thoughts for the Blogging Day…

Sliding Back into Obscurity…

I find myself becoming more quiet and withdrawn these past few days.  For a few days there, a week, I was so gregarious as far the blog was concerned and Twitter was concerned.  It is just one of my cycles I go through.  I will try to get back to replying to comments today, but no promises.  I was also so much more prolific with what I wrote.  I am finding it hard to think of things to write yesterday and today.  I hope this passes soon.  I much more liked my more gregarious self.  It was fun and exciting!

Big Storms on the Way This Morning…

The radar looks nasty to our west this morning.  The National Weather Service timeline says the storms should be here around 9am.  I am so excited!  I love spring storms as long as the power doesn’t go out and we don’t get any tornadoes.  I love the rain and we badly need to wash all this pollen away.  My car is literally yellow and there is a fine film of yellow on everything in my house from running my fan in the window these past few days.  The pollen has been so bad that it looks like smoke when the wind blows.  I am not exaggerating.  

Discovering Over the Air HDTV…

I was reading about my new HDTV on the Internet yesterday.  It said I could pick up high definition broadcasts over the air with an HDTV flat antenna.  Well, I just had to go to Wal-Mart and get one.  The picture quality is absolutely amazing.  I am astounded.  Public television never looked so good, and I would cancel my cable TV if it were not for my Cable Internet connection.  I get an amazing variety of channels as well.  I love the PBS knowledge channel.

New Camera…

002 copy Dad gave me his old Nikon Coolpix camera last night.  He had bought a new one.  This camera is tiny compared to mine.  It will easily fit in the palm of your hand.  I was relieved when it took two AA batteries and didn’t have a proprietary battery that needed to be charged through a cord.   I haven’t taken any pictures yet and will try it out today.  We will see what this camera can do.  I love gadgets so I was overly excited to get it.  I am going to let it be my “car camera” – the camera I can easily carry around in my pocket for that perfect opportunity for a pic.  My old Canon camera is really bulky and big.  I can’t express how tiny and light this thing is.

We are supposed to get the big storms tonight. It's been so warm here, as I guess your parents told you when they were here visiting. Temps will be back to normal after this front comes through.

Summer, mom and dad said it was HOT in D.C.! Despite being a doctor, my brother is extremely frugal and wouldn't turn the air down. Dad said he kept turning it down anyway! lol "I'll pay for it!" he said he told my brother.

Storms should be here in about thirty minutes. I am keeping a close eye on the radar. I have to drive to Lagrange in about an hour and a half and hope the worst has passed by then. I need some AA this morning. My daily dose of good shit in life. lol

We have really had our fill of storms here on the east coast. You would have loved it. Another one coming tonight. I don't want to hear anything about water shortages this summer.

Me neither Mary. I am sure the weather channel will be touting a drought somewhere though.

Ha, that's my camera, a Nikon Coolpix L14. Not exactly since yours seems to have a few more buttons than mine but it's close.
