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.

And the Tree that ended the evening.

After looking at these photos, I realized they were all taken with the 18-70 kit lens. I had decided to do the whole evening with this lens to see how they would turn out. There's was something not quite right about the photos with people and I couldn't put my finger on it. Now I realize it was the kit lens. Goodbye kit lens, Sigma 105, when will you be returned to me?
