I've been an awfully good girl......

and look at what Santa brought me today!
A Nikon Coolpix L100.......
Wow I have never had a camera this good. At least I think it's good! I can't hardly work it yet....too many bells and whistles. It appears to be sorta user friendly though because it seems to prompt you if you get in trouble. I need prompting often!! I can't wait to actually have a pretty sunny day...been raining buckets here today....to be able to take a picture of something interesting.
In the meantime I could dust my laptop, ya think?
Don't you just love my picture in my header? It is an original by my daughter Leslie, painted when she was in high school. It was in an art show and someone wanted to buy it but I wouldn't let her sell it. She didn't like it so I got to keep it. I love it!!!!!!
I have been Christmas shopping today. Whew! Almost finished. No decorating as of yet. I am so ashamed of myself for not having the decorating finished and all the shopping done and all wrapped up under the tree. Those were my plans each year when I was working but it didn't happen then "because I was working"....what's my excuse now? Blogging you say? Probably!!

I'm really, really, really, really jealous now! I want one for Christmas, too! I'll trade ya a horse for it... there's a short, little fat one out in the pasture that you couldn't even fall off of:)) Your daughter must have inherited that talent from her mother!

I am jealous too! I really want a camera for Christmas! Please put in a good word to Santa for me! I love the picture in your header, she's very talented!

Yaay to new camera! I can't believe Leslie didn't like that picture. I thought you had scanned a greeting card and put it on your header. I think it's pretty.

I'm jealous too! I really want a new camera! Thanks for putting my picture up. I like it better now than I did then. Just wish I could still paint like that!

I've always loved that painting! I wish she would have given it to me! Come June you'll have plenty to take pictures of:) So you better get to practicing and learn how to use it!

Great painting, your daughter has lots of talent.
You'll love the camera, I've got one and it's the best ever. I use it to take the full moon shots and don't even use a tripod!
What's that? Oh, you can tell.
sigh.
Still pretty, though...right?
