One Very Big Day

I’m taking a break from your regularly scheduled programming this week, i.e. photography tips, tricks, and camera talk to bring you other updates.  Imagine that.  And I’m glad many of you told me you’re enjoying it.  Good, because there’s more where that came from!

Yes, I made it back to San Diego after being gone at Food & Light

And boy, it was wonderful putting my key in the front door and just being home.

I went to the grocery store & TJ’s

Such awful weather to run errands in, I know.

Stocking up on fresh produce after traveling is almost as good as taking a shower in your own shower and sleeping in your own bed.

And this is probably better than sleeping in your own bed.

I’ve talked about my love for Sunflower Seed Butter, and then sun, in a post that was unexpectedly quite popular.

On my 7 Links Post, I was supposed to list a post who’s popularity surprised me, well Sunny is an example.

I unpacked, did laundry, cooked, cleaned and chopped produce

Went to work

And best of all, I hugged my precious!

Earlier today I was featured today as the Spolight Blogger on Pooja’s Way

I guess they liked me.   I’m flattered!

Thanks to Jane and the team at Pooja’s Way!

And later on today I have two fabulous events planned.

I never have that many “exciting” things on my social calendar but it just so happened that today, I have two.

Part of it is because BlogHer ’11 is in San Diego this weekend and all kinds of fabulous bloggers are descending on “my” city today.

I am first getting together with Lori, aka Recipe Girl, and lots of other bloggers.

Then, I am getting together with Kath, and other bloggers.

When it rains, it pours!  It’s been a big day already, and it’s not even half over!  Getting back from a trip and having a real “calm” schedule is just par for the course for me.

Thanks for the lovely comments on my last post, Photographing Challenging Food and Personal Assignments

I like to read what kinds of things, food, people, or various subjects are hard for you to photograph.   You’re not alone.  We all have that things that are just tricky.  And some things like brown food or beans or your cat who doesn’t want to cooperate are especially tricky.

Thanks for sharing what personal assignments, projects, and goals you’ve given yourself, and things you’d like to work on more.  Challenging ourselves and going out of our comfort zone is so important!

Questions:

1. Do you feel like when it rains, it pours?

I have had the most “exciting” four weeks in recent memory

A trip to Mexico City

Finding out we had to move and packing my house up with 2 weeks notice

Moving into a new home, unpacking, and getting settled

A trip to Boulder for Food & Light

And today, I’m meeting people that I’ve wanted to meet for ages.  I wish I wasn’t going to meet them all on the same day but hey, when it rains in pours!

Busy times, events, occurrences all seem to cluster together; then life usually calms down for a bit.  I’ll be ready for a little calmness.

2. What’s been keeping you busy lately?

Stay tuned for my big meetup(s) recap!

P.S. A call to anyone attending BlogHer ’11 here in San Diego, if you are around, you’d like to meet up, you know of fun meet ups that are happening, drop me an email or just comment and I’ll email you back.  Maybe we can sync up our schedules!

  1. It absolutely pours whenever there’s a little sprinkle, and not just because I’m in Oregon ;)

    It always seems like nothing is going on, or a million things are. I was supposed to have a relaxing weekend coming up and now practically every second is accounted for. I hope to get some calm time, I really think I need to calm my thoughts and meditate more!

  3. Yes, it never rains but it pours! Glad you’re going to get to meet up with some bloggie types.

    We had a wedding, three different sets of guests, and now I’m in Tacoma, WA for my MFA program–definitely felt like one thing after the other.

    Have a great weekend with lots of fun meetups!

  4. I love how when good things happen they tend to keep happening and kind of avalanche. That’s awesome.
    I love Todd & Diane… I’m sure you learned so much!

  5. I have been busy getting ready for my sister’s wedding, which is on Friday. There is still so much to do!
