forget me nots

skunk update

They are still here and doing well. Also still living in our bathroom. Barb finished the enclosure for them today, though, and they should probably be miving into it tomorrow. They're very messy little creatures. The little one is so funny. I pick it up and it sleeps curled up in my hand and it will snuggle and be petted and make little smacking sounds with its little mouth. Then when I set it down it looks up and scuttles away like I wasn't just holding it. Tap-tap-tap-ing at me and looking fierce. :)

I'm sniffly and itchy and sleepy. I should go to bed soon.

Today, moments after I woke up, David called me and we talked for a bit and I agreed to meet him for lunch. I took a shower, got my photo stuff together and then Barb showed up to finish the new skunk house. I went out and helped her with that and then went over to David's. We dropped off my film at Saginaw Photo and went to eat at the Chinese Super Buffet. Yay! We went to several stores trying to buy a battery for the older camera. Finally I bought two that I thought would work together (they do, fortunately) and we went back to his dad's. He's here on leave for a few more weeks. I'm going to try to see him as much as I can while he's here. He challenges me like few others do and it's always nice to have that sort of conversation.

(no subject)

I woke up today earlier than I thought I would... so so congested and sniffly. I was still half awake and Stephanie called me to ask if I was coming to the shower this Saturday. We talked a little more about the line up, times, and she said she would call probably one more time before that weekend.

I took the skunks out to their new house. I hope they've settled in well. They should be up and moving around by now. There's plenty of bugs out there for them... a many-legged buffet. Yum.

I turned in my last assignment today in class... Thursday is my last day. From what I could tell I liked how a good amount of my slides came out. This class has helped so much. I'm glad I finally took it. Now I want to find a way to take more. But until then I'll work on using what I have. Practice won't do anything but good.

Every time I pass the Covenant Healthcare place on Mackinaw I'm always drawn to the lines and colors and reflections in all of the windows... today ewspecially because there was a lovely sky and fluffy clouds. So I stopped to take a few pictures of the building and of the fountain next to it.

Today I went and took some pictures of Jake. Some in color, and come in blackand white. We shot in his back yard, in the woods, and on the road by the fields where I took Nikki. Some of them I'm not too sure about but some of the others I have a lot of hope for. I would have like to have some of the B&W ones in color too. I told him I might want to go back another day and get some colored shots in the same place.
