Yesterday morning I rolled out of bed around 7:30 feeling fully refreshed. Once G woke up, I fixed breakfast and we snuggled in to watch the season 8 premiere of Doctor Who that we'd recorded the night before. I'm not quite sure how I feel about the 12th doctor (Peter Capaldi), but I have a feeling he'll grow on me. I felt the same whenever Matt Smith replaced David Tennant and he ended up being my favorite doctor, though David Tennant will always have a special place in my heart as well.
After mama-bear got back from church, we all went out to eat at Olive Garden and then indulged in a little retail therapy. G was able to get the X-Box One (since PC gaming was somewhat of a bust) and I finally purchased the prime lens for my camera that had been on my wish list for well over a year now. For once, I didn't feel bad for spoiling myself a bit. I don't purchase expensive things for myself very often, but I've been working hard and I felt like a reward was in order. You guys, this lens is a beast! For something so compact (it's the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II), it's image quality and performance is great. Great investment overall.
Here's a few of the shots that I've taken with it so far:
I'm off today, but I have a few more errands to run and loads of laundry to do. I feel like I've gotten enough rest and I'm ready to conquer
the world whatever this week throws at me! I hope you all had a nice weekend and try to enjoy the rest of your Monday.
