To flash or not to flash

Bored and hungry today, so decided to make muffins and get to know my flash. A flash can be a wonderful thing, allowing me to hand hold the camera and add shadows and depth to the photos. I'm not sure why I don't use it more often. Probably because I don't know how to use it, but I guess it's time to start.

Baking, blogging and work share.

Work share has been a great program for companies during the past year. It helps to keep costs down and keep employees. But workshare can be a very good thing for the employees. An extra day off to do the things you want and not feel guilty about not being at work. Today I used my workshare day to bake. Not just bake something, but Christmas bake. I think it may have been a couple of years since I've done this and over the past years something I have not done on a regular basis.

For Jennifer:

For Manda:

For Shaun:

And thanks to Eddie, his wife and my sister we also have:

I have also booked a vacation day for tomorrow and I think I will bake again. And for those who know me, I only burnt myself once today.

I have a flower in the garden that droops every night and wakes up with the morning light. I took a series of pictures over 1 1/2 hours to show the flower waking up.
