Our summer ended with weeks of blistering heat followed by a hundred year flood. This first week of fall has been much more stable and dreamier. We also got our first snow on the Peak this week.
It actually snows up there year-round. The summit of Pikes Peak really has its own separate climate from us lowlanders, but it's this first major covering that always gets people snapping pics.
Speaking of snapping pics, we finally got us a decent camera this week. Magnum found a sweet online deal, and we snapped it up (get it? "snapped" it up??). It's a Canon EOS Rebel T3. I personally haven't read many reviews or such because Magnum usually does that stuff before making a purchase. It's like the way Burger King just builds wherever McDonald's does because McDonald's does all the market research.
Magnum is my McDonald's.
I need to learn how to use it yet. Maybe I'll play around with it later today. Toad photos anyone?
I finally got around to visiting another PEO chapter this week and plan to visit another soon. Apparently, my name has made the list of People-To-Call-Because-They'll-Actually-Come-Visit-When-Invited. My phone's been ringing crazily lately.
In movie news, we watched Side Effects, which I think I liked. It was a bit creepy and disturbing involving evil people. But there are several plot twists to hold the attention, and I'm happy to watch Jude Law do just about anything.
Wolfgang graced us with his presence for a while this weekend. He needed a haircut, and I was happy to oblige.
And I finally got around to getting my eyes checked. It's been about 5 years since my last prescription and I noticed having a bit of trouble seeing the board in class. Turns out, my eyes haven't changed all that much. Maybe the instructor just has messy writing?
