pictures worth a few words

I forgot to post on Tuesday, probably because I had nothing to say. Here’s Tuesday’s picture.

This is a bud on my rose bush, Old Blush. Its an old garden rose (as in not hybridized to the point that if you look at it cross-eyed it gets black spot). There’s a little history on the rose here, if that kind of stuff interests you. She’s a tough old broad. I completely ignore her and she still grows and blooms (not as nicely as if I tended to her more). The bush is currently about 6 feet tall and about as wide. Its going to be a shame to cut it back next month, but it needs to be done.

Today I . . .

Sat in bed and started reading a book about my camera, so I can make the most of it. I already learned the importance of histograms and what they can tell you. I think this book will help me a lot because its written in a fashion that makes sense to my brain. Its not all explained in technological jargon. I need some gentle words surrounding the tech stuff so I feel more at home reading it. I’ve got a basic grasp on the features, but not as in depth as I’d like. I’d like to get to the point where I could maybe take pictures good enough to sell a couple prints on Etsy (dream big, girl).

I can’t decide if I want to keep posting them here with blogs. I guess it will just depend on whether I have anything to say, not that having nothing to say ever stops me.

Today was my dad’s appointment with the doctor at the cancer center. They’re going to do scans and blood work and swallow studies and he’s supposed to see a medical oncologist and a radiation oncologist. The doctor did say there’s a chance it could be scar tissue build up from the last surgery, but I’m not getting my hopes up for that.

Randomly, I was hearing something on the news about being socially withdrawn is bad for heart patients. I’m going to have to make my mom leave the house more when she gets home.
