Friday October 23, 2009

It was another perfect day. I guess it's all in a matter of perception if you consider a day perfect or not. Perfection can come in any form all in the way you look at it according to who is experiencing it.

Anyway, today was our annual
Austin Rock and Mineral Show.
We got smart this year and waited to go around lunchtime to ensure the masses of school kids were done and gone.

It was an absolutely beautiful day. Temps were in the 60's and the skies were blue...and guess what?? I couldn't get my camera to work. My batteries refused to cooperate. Austin is a beautiful city and it's an absolute sin not to go there armed with a camera. So, sorry no pics this time.

Summer came home with more rocks for her growing rock collection. After we got home we ate our dinner and watched this really boring video on the ecosystem. Well, I found it to be boring so I figured Summer was finding it just as boring. Guess not, she made us sit through the whole video.

After we ate she disappeared into her "office" as she has been calling her room for the past couple of days. In a little while I poked my head in to see what she was up to. She was sitting on her bed organizing her rocks and watching PBS. She has never spent much time in her room always preferring to be in the living room or outside.

The rest of the evening was spent doing our usual stuff - Summer playing outside with a whole herd of kids, and me balancing the checkbook, paying bills, and doing mundane chores.

I did get to use my new web cam. My brother and I had a nice conversation AND we can see each other now, which makes it much more personal.

That was our day in a nutshell.

  1. Funny you'd say that. As I write my battery is charging. I wanted to go out for some night shots, and the battery was dead. Grrr. I need to get a second.
