I need more weekend. Mine flew by too quickly. None of the usual weekend chores were tackled. But sometimes a weekend like we had is worth it.
Saturday was consumed by my best friend’s renewal of wedding vows ceremony/going away party. I was enlisted as the official event photographer. Have I mentioned that my best friend is a professional photographer? Yeah. No pressure there. I told her I don’t do people pictures. I do flowers and other such things. Things! Not people. She said not to worry. As long as I could get the poses and such and convince everyone to smile and look at the camera all at the same time, she could fix whatever I mucked up with lighting and such.
As it turned out, I did alright. I took about 300 pictures. (Ah, the joy of digital!) And I got some pretty good ones too. She was happy.
The reception/going-away party was also a big success, if the headache with which I greeted the day yesterday was any indication. I got out of bed around 10 a.m. when Brad called home to wish me a happy Mother’s Day. I felt alright while talking with Brad for about 20 minutes; just a little tired. After I hung up the phone, the “icky” started to set in. I went to find some Tylenol and went back to bed until about noon when I felt significantly better.
It was about that time that my kids greeted me with some beautiful Mothers Day cards and a couple of planters filled with Gerber Daisies. They are gorgeous! I love Gerber Daisies.
From then on, the day was pretty lazy. It was beautiful outside after a windy, cold Saturday. We visited both the moms and then I wrapped up the day by going to Gina’s to transfer pictures from my camera to her computer. We watched a slide show of photos from both the ceremony and the party, which was held in the banquet room at…you guessed it! The bowling alley! Along with all the posed and nicey-nice shots, Kacey managed to take quite a few of us bowling. Yes, someone decided we should bowl. Until two in the morning. Gina was wearing a wedding dress, mind you! I was slightly dressed up as well. That didn’t stop us! Nope. Not at all. I’ll share some of those pictures eventually; just as soon as I have a chance to do some cropping and editing.
Of course, all that sleep I got yesterday morning plus the fact that I was back in bed quite early last night means I was awake well before the alarm clock said I needed to be this morning. And that left me time to actually write this morning! Not a bad way to start the day! I should try this going to bed early stuff more often!
