Scenes From The Weekend

(waffles & fruit, Sunday morning)

(Friday's faculty retreat at the Dorr lodge & nature reserve)

 (learning how to focus my brand new Nikon D3100)

 (shades of plum in front of the fire)

 (a forever comforting sight: coffee, steaming)

(chocolate cupcakes with pink coconut snowball frosting = delectable Friday night treat)

(kooky/wonky, what have you)

I bought myself a beautiful new Nikon D3100 last week and spent a good chunk of the weekend attempting to figure out how to do more than turn it on. I think it will take me all Spring to really get the hang of the immense power and nifty functions, but I'm cool with that. I love it. All I want to do is take pictures. (And hooray for fulfilling one of my resolutions!)

Picture-taking served as a necessary interlude from working, which is what characterized the rest of my weekend. Between thesis-drafting, resume-editing and general paper-writing, I came up for air only to eat and watch our weekly Netflix (Salt) on Saturday evening. We also made a quick Whole Foods run, and now I'm delighted with the produce-packed fridge. Just the way I like it.

This week is shaping up to be a busy one, but I'm thinking a good one, too.  Hope you find your balance as well. 

Oh, and happy happy Valentine's day! We're celebrating cozy-style tomorrow night...a midweek romantic break if you will :)
