I finally made my plum jam. Or maybe it's prune jam, Italian Prunes to be exact. Did 2 batches. No matter how much I stir that stuff, I still end up with floating fruit. I tell Kerry that it's supposed to be that way. Plum jam on top, plum jelly on the bottom of the jar. He's just happy to have it.
I called about my camera that was supposed to be in at Visions last week, and of course, it's not in. Al, who I am sure is sick of me, is going to call Canon again and see what the hold up is. I fear that when it comes back it won't be the same as it was before. And I don't mean it will be fixed, I think it will be worse off. Just a feeling I have. I sure wish it was back, tomorrow Shaun's dojo wants to get some better pictures of the club and all I have is a rinky dinky film camera. A silly waterproof Canon Sureshoot or something like that. I don't like it at all. I get the shot all set up, look through the tiny hole, push the button and then what....nothing. I don't know if it's a good picture or a bad one, so I take another. And waiting...holy smokes, I have to take 24 pictures before I can see my jam shots! I don't even remember what is on the roll of film anymore. Or if this camera even works, I mean it is advancing the film and the flash goes off, whether I want it or not. It's torture.
Kerry had a chance to get a FREE Sony digital camera but I wanted an MP 3 player, and really, I have a darn good camera. But I almost said "Get the camera." I thought maybe, just maybe, the new one would get here before mine gets fixed. But then that would be cheating on my camera and karma would get me, and my camera would come back worse off than before. Someone asked me who takes my pictures for me. I replied I do. She said I must have lots because she could see them all over my scraproom. I jokingly said I loved my camera, more than the kids, and the kids replied from the other room, "Yes, she loves her camera more than us!"
And it figures, my printer, Canon i9900 is on at Office Depot for almost half of what I paid. I couldn't have waited a year but still...it bugs me that stuff like that drops in price so fast.
Fall is officially here. I love this time of year.
Did you know it's less than 3 months until Christmas? Get started on your Christmas cards, get them finished and send them out!
