I had a busy day planned,
and so it turned out. It started with preparing the accounts paperwork for posting to the UK. We then went shopping to get food for tonight’s EFM class; it’s my turn to provide the evening meal. My original idea was to make a proper English shepherds’ pie, but the time spent struggling with the accounts yesterday had prevented me from doing my reading for tonight. Ginger was very nice and volunteered to make chicken soup while I did my reading. Before settling down to do the afore-mentioned reading I checked the air pressure in the van’s tyres, That’s the second tyre pressure checking picture I’ve taken this year.
Taking today’s shot took much longer than I anticipated because the Nikon gave up focusing again. I got round the problem by switching over to manual focus, totally un-focusing it, and then putting it back to autofocus. This worked, but of course I didn’t find out it wasn’t focusing until after I took my first set of shots, had removed the camera from the scene and chimped the pictures.
My plan was to take a ‘honest shot’ with the remote in full view as my shot for today, but I decided to go with this picture instead.
The rest of the afternoon was spent studying, and at five I went off to class. I got in shortly after nine, having stopped on the way home to fill up with exorbitantly priced fuel ($3.23 per US gallon). We watched a movie – The other Man. It’s now horribly late and I ought to stop typing and go to bed.
