Kindergarten Pipe Dreams, Revisted

Last July, I made guacamole. Then I took one of the avocado pits and suspended it with toothpicks in a plastic cup, just like I did in Kindergarten. Because I am easily amused. I don't remember what happened with my avocado tree when I was actually 5, but this time around, it's thriving.

Can't wait to throw that baby in the ground this spring!

Then:














Now:


















In other "yay" news, we got an email today that after all of our back-and-forth fighting with the warranty people, Casio has finally shipped our repaired camera back.

In the meantime, I've been wondering what life would be like with a Digital SLR, and trolling Craigslist for steals (highly unlikely). If anyone out there is looking to upgrade or has an old, beginner-friendly DSLR that you're thinking about selling, can we talk? A new one certainly isn't in the budget, but oh boy, I'd love to be able to take nice photos.

I firmly believe that you can take decent photos with almost any camera.

There are less expensive cameras that give you flexibility beyond a point and shoot, but not quite as much as an slr. The Canon Powershot SX10IS is $340, new.

I got mine on ebay, a couple of years ago. It's done well by me, but I know not every ebay purchase goes as smoothly.
