Not another case of the Mondays

Since graduating and starting my full work schedule, I haven’t been having cases of the Mondays. This is probably because Monday, Tuesday and (sometimes) Wednesday are my days off. Instead I have cases of the Thursdays.

Today has been an excellent Monday.

I had a good work meeting with my bosses—they want me to take on even more marketing/event planning responsibilities.

Then I swung by the campus post office and picked up my snazzy new camera that arrived today! It’s an Olympus E-PL2 which is a compact system camera (between point-and-shoot and DSLR).

It’s beautiful and I’m waiting for the battery to charge (by modeling it) so I can play with it.

I’m really excited about it because one of my long-term projects that’s been on the back-burner for a while is to start dabbling in photography. I have a pretty good aesthetic eye, but I want to get beyond just using the auto settings of the camera and really be able to craft a particular shot.

Also, my old 2007 Cannon point-and-shoot was kind of on it’s last leg…

After that, my friend Sara and I got delicious veggie tortas from a local sandwich place and took them out to the Blue Mountain Lavender Farm for a wonderful and tranquille afternoon picnic. It’s family owned and the husband is French so I got to brush up on my speaking skillz (just in time for my DALF* exam later this week.)

I also bought some lavender sachets! (I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so I bought both of them…)

And in a few hours I’m going to do yoga and then go to the meeting of my book club.

Wow…I almost sound like a housewife…

*The DALF is a French language proficiency test. If you pass the level you test for, you have a cool, internationally-recognized dîplome.
