I'll Do the Three Things Meme

1. Smith has, so far, been successful in keeping the round zucchini plant alive and producing, by squishing the bugs and stirring the ground to upset their nests. A yellow zucchini has not yet been infected. We'll fight until the end to keep our plants safe, but we should have zucchini for the foreseeable future. We're worried about the kids pumpkin patch, but in that patch there hasn't been any sign of the bugs, as yet.

2. We did what all the cool kids are doing and got smart phones. The camera feature put me over the edge. I forget my camera regularly, but usually remember my phone. Maybe my blogging skills will improve if pictures become more readily available. I just need to get the hang of the "modes", focusing, etc.

July 9, 2014 7:45am - I'll never stop loving the sky, so I need to get better with the camera

3. I finished my TTL Mystery shawl, but haven't had a time to take some "fun" photos. We'll see how the weekend goes and if there is time for something other than the boring standing on the patio or under a tree photo, I'll post photos next week. The shawl is gray, I'm gray and something needs to happen to make us look less gray.

4. Tonight we're going out with friends and have my favorite food (sushi!). My friend and I share the love of sushi and our husbands can find things on the menu to there liking, too, although they both are starting to acquire a taste for the delicate flavor of raw fish. A fine sushi chef helps, as does the Kobe beef he adds to their rolls. 

Hey, I made it to 4 things (aimed for 5 but I've run out of time). I hope you have a delightful and beautiful weekend!!

(I've signed up...took one last summer and learned a lot and had fun!)
Can't wait to see your shawl. All the FO's have been so pretty! Enjoy your sushi and the weekend!

We've been making ceviche. Yummy and easy.

i have eaten sushi only a few times--when I was withmsomeone who knew where to eat and what to order (and out of town to boot). I'd love to find an excellent sushi place where I live.

Yay for the smartphone and its camera! I'm so happy you are liking it so far.

I have great confidence in your shawl-photo-styling capabilities.

You'll love your smartphone.
Happy Weekend!

The phone can really be so fun. Lots of free apps out there to mix things up. Can't wait to see the shawl...my goal is to finish clue 3 by the end of the weekend! ;-)

"The shawl is gray, I'm gray and something needs to happen to make us look less gray." lol Fuchsia shirt maybe?

I barely use my camera anymore - my phone is generally nearby and it doesn't make the kitties instantly suspicious when I pick it up. Other than focusing and the occasional zoom or flash, I don't do much with the picture taking settings - I clean 'em up after.

I am such an old fogey. No smart phone here, and no plans for one. OK, I admit it, in some ways I am a luddite! I hope you enjoy yours to the fullest and learn all the bells and whistles.

once you have a smart phone you can never ever go back! Have fun always having a camera at the ready!

Hooray for sushi! And smart phones! And using the smart phone to take a photo of the sushi. Hint, hint.
