Yesterday was a tough one for me after a long night of insomnia that I can blame on stress at work. I went to work very nervous that I had overbooked my GED tests. One brilliant thing came from my worrying because I mentioned it to the book keeper who used to do my job. Although she hadn’t experienced the high volume of GED sign ups, she recommended I enter the applications into a spreadsheet! Man, why didn’t I think of that myself? I have a spreadsheet set up for our bills and even my Christmas List is on one.
Luckily for me, the office was quiet for a while so I was able to enter all of the information and set up a formula for the computer to count. I didn’t overbook any tests, yay! The tremendous weight on my shoulders slowly went away with the headache I came in to work with also. Whew!
Now back to my December Daily – which I’m doing to motivate me to play with my camera every day this month. I played with my camera settings last night before deciding to switch lenses to my nifty fifty. Ray gave me that lens last year for my birthday/Christmas present. It is great for bokeh images this time of year – hello Christmas lights!
I’ve noticed that I have to be very careful when I hold the camera with this lens on it – it can blur easily since it doesn’t have an Image Stabilizer feature. I went back to my snowflake prompt from the other day. We haven’t seen any real snowflakes yet so how about some of my tree décor…
