Randoms on Monday Night

Late Monday post ... but it's still Monday, and better late than never (which is what happens to most of my Monday post ideas).

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{one} No Left Turns

I don't turn left well when I'm driving.  I'm like the opposite of a Nascar driver.  In the fall of 2008 a few months after we moved to Nashville, I totaled my car making a left-hand turn out of the apartment complex.  The road before the turn out made a deep curve which caused me to not see the car when I looked.  So yeah ... it was quite emotional and scary ... and now I will take three right hand turns if it keeps me from turning left.

To get on the interstate I have to turn left.  This morning my uneasiness apparently angered the guy behind me because he turned left behind me while I sat there and waited.  Guess he was in a hurry.

{two} Less Snores

My hubby is in Atlanta right now at his first week of training for his new job.  I miss him.  I don't sleep as well without him in the bed with me, but I also don't wake up to loud snoring at 3am.  But I really do miss him.  I can't wait till he comes home on Friday!

{three}  Baby, It's Cold Outside

I have been a bit obsessed (is 'a bit' ever 'a bit' when it is followed by the word 'obsessed'?) with the new Nora Jone's album Featuring.

Take a listen'll thank me later!

{four}  Envy

I'm suffering from camera envy.  I love looking at everyone's pictures, but I am so quick to compare with my own.  'If I had a DSLR camera; I could take pictures like that.  I could experiment with a depth of focus like that.  I could be that good.' blah blah blah

I did ask for Photoshop Elements for Christmas so I can play with actions and textures and all that fun stuff.  I just feel a bit in a rut.  

Want some envy too?  Check out The Shutter Divas flickr page ... amazing!

{five} Blessed

but ... I am blessed.  Even if I want someone else's camera (don't look away for too long friends ... I might steal).  Even if I only have a point and shoot (granted it's a nicer one).  Even if the lens cover doesn't close all the way and the lens is often fuzzy (that's thanks to Audrey).

I can capture this incredibly cute picture as we got ready to cheer our Auburn Tigers onto an SEC Championship.

How are you blessed tonight?


  1. I hate left turns, they scare me. You are very blessed! I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

  2. I hate left turns too. I totaled my van almost a year ago. I was turning left at a green light and a lady ran her red light and slammed me in the side. I always am slow taking off at green lights now. Crazy how much that can affect you. Thanks for sharing that song.

  3. I have a DSLR and I still have picture/camera envy. I decided not to look at that Shutter Diva site as I'm already annoyed at my photos as it is!!! Loved reading your blog.

  4. I thought I was the only one that hated left turns! I've not been in an accident turning left, but that's only because if it's busy, or if I can't see, I will go right ;0)

    I am blessed with an amazing husband that loves me deeply ... enough even to overlook our daughter's horrible mess of a room because I can't put her new dressers together and he has been busy.

  5. Such a cutie pie! Great photo!
