I Hate It When That Happens!

Yesterday my digital camera died. He gave me two good years but I guess he just couldn't handle the workload...I know I overworked him but hey, could he have given me a warning or something?! So today was a "Girl's Day Out" for me and Froggie which usually means lots of thrift stores and yarn shopping but she graciously agreed to help me look for a new camera. (Thanks, girlfriend!) I looked online last night...compared cameras and checked the prices...found one at Walmart that looked pretty interesting but I have to see it and check it out before I decide. So our first stop was Walmart. *they normally don't have whatever I find online and decide I must have* They had it and I got it! It's a Kodak Z1275 and I love this camera! You know how I love taking photos *not necessarily good ones* and it's got 12 megapixels...I was like a kid with a new toy. I have to be able to take pictures of my knitting! It's a need kind of thing right? That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

Not any knitting to share today but here's a photo of Ms Thang and Christopher (Froggie's little guy who's gonna get the new duckie). Can you tell they're happy to be getting out of school? lol

This one I took while we were waiting on the kids..just playing with the new toy. Luckily Froggie tolerates my strange obsession and isn't embarrassed when I randomly snap a photo while we're driving down the road. :P

Okay, my crisis is over and now I really gotta go get some knitting done. I did get a few skeins of yarn today but it was marked down *only $1.oo* and a couple balls of solid color cotton. Not a bad day at all.


*Oh yeah, no blogging tomorrow for the Blog 365er's. It's a day off...can't even blog about not blogging*

I'm glad you like the new camera! I have to get a decent one some day, so many things on the list, though.

Enjoy your day of rest tomorrow!

I am looking for a new camera as well. Saving my money. Does your new camera have a zoom lens???

Really we can't blog even if we want to???? OH no!!!!!!!!! I know I've missed a few days but geeeez.

Congrats on the new camera!!!! I have a Kodak digital that we bought a few years ago and it is going strong. I use it all the time. I am sure you will love yours.
