Wow. As is typical, the weathermen all forecasted doom and gloom on us all the way through the day and night. The predictions of rain and thunderstorms that they put out this morning have been recalled. Thank goodness earlier we got the rain, but strangely this evening we got the sun to finally come out of hiding. Can we get a Hallelujah? Hallelujah! I fell like dancing.
It is amazing how a little sun can brighten your day. I was feeling very down yesterday. Wednesday was my 25th anniversary and my husband has been out of town since Tuesday. I didn't think it would bother me at all since I think how we treat each other day to day is so much more important than any particular day - including my silver anniversary. But it did. I find it weird that I reacted so strongly since we have had anniversarys that we have both forgotten. He gets back tonight.
Then earlier today doom definitely struck. My camera for the last six years has been a digital Elph. I bought it to have a little camera to take photos on a two week backpacking trip with my (then) 16 year old daughter. That little camera has seen so many good times with me. I just love it since I can toss it in my pocket and bring it with me where ever I go - when I remember. Today my Elph started taking some really weird photos.
All the red is gone. Very strange. Also strange is the coincidence that right before Joel left for his business trip he put on the macro lens for me and showed me how to use his camera. The Nikon D200 is not a little camera that you can throw in your pocket. It is a beautiful digital SLR. It takes such wonderul photos. It is much better than my Elph.
When I saw the wonderful evening light shining through the trees I grabbed Joel's camera and went outside. I couldn't help but turm my face to the sun and smile. I think when I moved to New England from Colorado as a college student I might have made a mistake. I'm always so depressed when the sun doesn't shine for days. I'm so glad it rained earlier in the day, but am even more glad it is now sunny.
