July 12, 2014

Hello Dear Family,

Hello planet.  Another hot day in Boise today, at 100°f, but it did not feel too bad inside.  Yesterday Jack cleaned all the filters and vents, and that seems to have helped cool the house a bit more.  I also made sure all the shades were closed.  Ordinarily I love all the shades wide open, as I love natural light pouring into the house, but it also keeps things too warm.  The forecast for tomorrow is a high of 102°f.  Yikes!

What is crazy to me is that last summer I remember riding my bike over 20 miles in 99°f temps with no problems.  I miss that Veronica.  :)

Needless to say, we did not do much today.  Lots of relaxing with movies, Youtube and video games.

For my photo today I was looking forward to shooting the Supermoon this evening with my new 75-300mm lens, but because it did not work, I gave up on that idea.  As we watched the moon rise, it was so gorgeous I decided to try the lens again.  Surprisingly, I discovered that it works beautiful on manual focus.  What?  So I managed to get some amazing photos.  But what the heck auto-focus?  If I am using the T3, and Live View, I manually focus it is no big deal.  I am still going to contact the seller and let him know.  But yay for Supermoon pictures!

I have a new favorite snack too.  I fill a glass just under a half with hot water, add a teaspoon of instant coffee, and top with a couple of scoops of vanilla bean ice cream.  Instant frappuccino, and a great remedy for a headache.

Hope you are having a great weekend everyone!

Until next time...
