This weekend was several kinds crazy in Minneapolis.
Crazy bad because the dew point was around 80 all weekend and the heat index around 110F/43C. What that means is that it felt like we were living in the rainforest minus the monkeys. p.s. I do not have air conditioning.
It was crazy good because I was finally able to play with the Canon 20D camera that my amazingly generous Father-in-Law gave me recently along with a new lens. This is my first DSLR and I spent the whole weekend playing around, evidenced here. You can tell I’m still getting the hang of it but I’m so excited to start experimenting.
There was also a fun trip to the Band Box Diner, beers, a film at the cinema, homemade ice cream making with friends, Mexican soda, three adopted pots of herbs (mint, rosemary, chives), World Cup football, and lots of non-cooked meals.
