FRIDAY FRAGMENTS

Half-Past Kissin'Time

********
I ran over to Hallmark yesterday to take advantage of the Buy One Get One Free special that is going on with Christmas cards, gift wrap, stickers, tissue, ribbon, etc.! Yes I have enough supplies to last me the rest of my life but I never pass up a good sale and it is rare for them to have their individual Christmas cards on sale, you know the ones you buy for family members.........

********
Did you ever have one of those days when you get so involved on your computer reading posts and playing games that you end up showering around 1 pm, only to sit again at your computer with you bath wrap on when suddenly it is almost 5 pm, husband is out of town so you just put on clean pajama's.....I thought so!

********
I got myself a new point and shoot camera. I got an updated version of my Lumix from Costco and I love it. I was searching a few weeks ago online and saw it for $249. Monday I got an email flier so I went and looked and it was on sale for $199. I texted Mark in the UK just to ask if it was okay with him and it was.

Well he said it was part of my Christmas present but I said a camera is no different than needing some new hedge clippers, every household needs one! Am I right or I'm I right?

My old one had a 12x zoom and the new one has a 20x zoom. It also has HD video and came with a 16 GB card, carrying case and of course the charging stuff. Also it has the same battery as my old one so now I have a backup one. 

Yes I do love my Canon Rebel Big Girl Camera but when I travel, especially going to Disney World in December I find myself wanting to be free of carrying too much around the park with me. (especially because I will be alone) I get a lot of compliments on my pictures and some are from my Canon Rebel but the majority are taken with the Panasonic Lumix point and shoot! 

********
So my Fast Metabolism Diet is going well. I've been on it for 8 weeks now and have lost 11 pounds. I wish the pounds would come off quicker but I know that this is a healthy way to lose weight. Also this is with basically no exercise at all. I am really enjoying all the healthy food I am eating. (No sugar, dairy or alcohol except for a special occasion)....... 

Isn't Friday night a special occasion?

Have a Wonderful Weekend

I have a Canon Rebel too, but I still like my little point and shoot for certain things. Like waterparks or canoe trips. Don't want to risk taking the good camera! Your Lumix looks really nice though. I don't think I'd want to get it in the canoe either! ;-)

Yes, Friday is a special occasion and a camera and hedge clippers are in the same category gift wise : ) Enjoy!

In my opinion Friday is a special occasion :) WTG on the continued weight loss, Debby; I will have to check that diet out. Looks like a great camera! I do agree that having a camera is essential in a family to record events. Enjoy getting used to it :)

have a great weekend!

A new camera is definitely on my list too...

KC Bob said...

LOL, I am writing this around noon in my pajamas! Like the lens on that Lumix. I have not heard of that brand before.

You need to pat yourself on the back...11 pounds is a lot!

Love the new camera I feel the same I take the small one with me place and the big one to special occasions.

Way to go on the diet! I wish I would have stuck with it longer. I'm sticky to eating healthy and keep up with my exercise. I know God has a plan and I'm just giving it to him right now. I was stressing too much.

Chatty Crone said...

A new camera is something I want too! I would love a new camera!

Rebecca Jo said...

YES! Every house DOES need a camera... a good one too! I'll back you on that!

nancygrayce said...

No.....dear husband......cameras do not count as Christmas gifts! :)

Good job on the diet!!! I'll have to check that out because my metabolism completely changed when my thyroid started having problems!

Have a great weekend! I hope to do a FF before long! The weeks just slip away and yes, I do find myself doing just what you're talking about with the computer!

My last camera was a Lumix; I loved it.
No dairy would be hard for me; I love my yogurt and my cheese! Congrats on your weight loss.
I love pajama days; had one last weekend, because the hubs was at the hunting camp.
Thanks for linking up! Have great weekend.

Dawn Saros-Kirk said...

I'll have to check out that camera. I want to get another camera, and yes, every house needs one! I love those days when you can sit around all day in your PJs. And wasting a whole day on the computer is so easy. Have a great weekend. Congrats on the weight loss!

Loving the new little cam and sales are ALWAYS a great thing.

CB said...

Ha! It is 1:01 in the afternoon at my house and I am still in pajamas!!
I am with you on the camera I like carrying one that is not so bulky. I hadn't heard much about the Luminex but it looks like a great deal you got!

Unknown Mami said...

Jenny said...

Your camera is neat and your day sounds relaxing!
