scenes from the weekend

July 18, 2011

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.

p.s.

NO AC? Poor thing. At least you had that tiger of a hubby to keep you company. :) Should I be afraid for the radiator?

Awesome! Except the no A/C part. That’s un-awesome. But the rest – awesome!
