Today I treated myself. I bought myself a hand held flash.
I won't tell you that I know yet quite how to use it, but I am hopeful that I can learn.
Here is a picture of the cupboard by the back door, using the new flash.
Here is a picture of the same cupboard, a few days ago, with just the regular flash on my camera.
There is a glare, and it looks harsh.
And here is the same cupboard with no flash at all.
Do you get it??
Good, cause I don't. I'm working on it though. God knows.
I have not had a good day. First of all, it was a # 10 headache day, haven't had one this bad in a while.
Then I was forced to admit that a SKUNK has totally screwed up production at Crazy as a Loom.
Yup, a skunk. He lives under the barn, and he was apparently frightened enough to stink up the whole place.
Everything has to be moved out of the barn, a gargantuan task, and HE has to go. Seriously.
Then I came home, and decided to make black bean soup. Which went well. At first.
It went well until I poured half of it in the food processor, to blend it, and it leaked out all over the counter.
Sputtering, I cleaned up the mess. I washed the processor, and put it back together, and tried it again.
It leaked out all over the counter.
By this time, I was totally ticked off, skunk and all.
The soup was just FINE unblended, with some asiago bread that I bought from Panera, and a wedge of iceburg, chopped tomatoes, and blue cheese dressing.
And a glass of wine.
The Cuisinart is history.
That's the way I roll.
