We are right smack dab in the middle a winter wonderland. Snow has fallen all day and it has made for some interesting predicaments for some people. Not me. It means 3 snow days in a row...and now Christmas break. I have remained at home caring for the animals and knitting by the fire. Poor Hubby has been out on the roads helping people out of the predicaments since he works for the county and can run a snowplow and sander. All I can do is keep the home fires burning and make sure he has a warm meal when he gets in. I made cinnamon rolls, how's that for a treat! Now I would take pictures of all this snow but my camera is at Canon getting fixed. It has been a problem since I got it. I can get some amazing shots but for every one of those I get a bazillion that are out of focus. Me being the self-doubter that I am kept thinking I was doing something wrong so I put off taking it back. Just when I would be all prepared to take it back I would get a gorgeous shot like this....
And think, once again, it was me doing something wrong.
After taking my camera to Thanksgiving and letting my son and his lovely girlfriend look at it, because they know a whole lot more about cameras than I do, I decided to take it back. They told me it was the camera for sure. So I took it back to the store only to be told that I was 10 days too late. If I'd have come back 10 days ago they'd have given me my money back. The manager said, "Why in the world would you think it was your fault?" "Most people think it is the camera."
Well I'm not like most people and tend to think everything is my fault....or nothing is my fault...depending on who you talk too.
The next day I called Canon and a very nice gal troubleshooted with me and determined that is was indeed the camera and to send it back pronto so they could get it back for Christmas. She said she would email me a shipping label and a return invoice. So I waited and nothing came. I called again and this time I got rude dude on the phone that sharply told me that they never give out shipping labels, it was against their policy but could I hold....so I held...he came back on the line and said begrudgingly that he would send me one but once again it was against their policy. At least rude dude sent one and off to the repair shop my camera went. I hope I get it back before Christmas, but I didn't get it back in time to take pictures of Sunny in the snow. He is such a little fuzz bucket right now and I would love to have taken a picture of him today as the snow fell.
So I leave you with a few shots of warmer days and a reminder to not forget to look up.
Help! I'm lost without my camera.
This just in; Camera is on the way...yay
