due to our work schedules, john and i only have one weekend day together (he has saturday and sunday off; i have sunday and monday). we spend as much time together as possible on sundays, and try to plan something fun. this sunday was a lovely one! this morning, we slept in (which, in this case, was until 7am – don’t say we don’t know how to party!), had a leisurely breakfast, then went to town. we sold a few dvds to half-price books, and, due to the money we received from that + the 15% off coupon, only paid $5 for the stack of books we picked up! then on to whole foods – i especially adore the cheese + produce areas, everything is so gorgeous and beautifully arranged.

john had plans to stop for lunch at a tiny mediterranean diner we’d come across, but it was closed; and he then suddenly developed a craving for chinese food. the restaurant we found was housed in what looked like an old alpine lodge – as though the restaurant inside would serve fantastic breakfast foods, rather than egg foo young and crab rangoons!

after we got home, i baked a loaf of bread, we both read for a while, and have friends + their baby coming over to watch a movie with us. it’s always easier to face the week ahead when we have such a lovely day together.

p.s. we’re in the market to buy a new digital camera, and as of right now, i’m leaning toward this. criteria: more than 10 megapixels, good macro, quick shutter speed, reputable brand, under $200. thoughts?

    I’ve had nothing but Canons since my film days… had a little film Canon that I loved then upgraded to Canon Powershots. I recently got this one that I love love love (http://www.amazon.com/Canon-SD1200IS-Stabilized-Dark-Gray/dp/B001SER492/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1268020416&sr=8-2) because it’s so small, it can go anywhere with me. Sar Starnes had one, too, that she loved to use to shoot videos of the girls. (But it was stolen!) It’s great because it’s tiny but takes great quality photos.

    Regarding the PowerShot you mentioned, that’s a good one, too. I just like mine better because it’s smaller. My brother has one similar to the one you’re considering and has had it for years and still loves it. It’s a great camera. No matter what, you should go with Canon!

    Thanks for your input, Kate! I don’t mind the camera I linked to being a little heftier (with the slim ones, I’m always afraid I’ll drop it); I actually like a heavier, bulkier camera; I’ve been shooting with a film camera from the 70s, and loooove it, but see the need for a digital, especially as the Baby Arrival Time draws ever-nearer. :)

    You know we love the HP Photosmart 945. Takes amazing photos, and even when they’re printed out in huge poster size, they’re absolutely un-grainy. Has huge optical zoom and a digital zoom. Great camera. Not to disappoint.

    Hey Mom,

    We actually ordered the Canon on Sunday; it’s 12.1 megapixels, good optical zoom, and you can make 16×20′ prints from it – and we don’t really need to print any photos larger than that! :)
