A Whole Lotta Nothing

by Alaina on November 16, 2011 · 2 comments

That was pretty much my day today. A whole lotta nothing.

I woke up to David calling me around 8AM. I contemplated going for a run but ended up vetoing it since this cough I’ve been fighting is in my chest. I don’t want it to get worse. I signed up for the Whitinsville 5 Miler Turkey Trot for Thanksgiving and I want to be in tip top shape!

For breakfast (which went unpictured) I had some When Pigs Fly toast with 1 egg scrambled on top, side of Morning Star “sausage” and mango Cobani.

The only time I left the apartment was to get the mail. And you know what? I liked it. With my schedule over the weekend, a day at home was much needed. I was supposed to go out to dinner with a friend from high school but this cold is keeping me indoors.

When I made lunch, I put together one of my favorite stir fry bowls with chicken and quinoa. I also decided to do some experimenting with my camera to see what the manual setting is all about. I changed the ISO setting on each picture, but still haven’t gotten the handle of aperture’s and f…numbers. Yeah, there’s a lot to know, but I’m excited to learn! The pictures go from an ISO of 400 down to 80:


And then I just sat on my butt all day, watched TV, checked blogs and signed up for a New Year’s Polar Plunge with my brother in law and sisters in law! We’re raising money for Camp Sunshine. I’m scared and yet really excited for it. Smile

Are there any photography tutorials that you like? Blogs or books?
