Just some stuff I took pictures of this week

My sister-in-law has started doing a Friday blog where she talks about 5 things from her family's week, and I thought I'd see if I could do something similar, though perhaps not on Fridays.  In any case, it was good motivation this week to get out the new camera I got for Christmas and take some pictures with it.  Here are  things that happened this past week:

1) Couches

The first sofa/love seat combo I'd picked out didn't work out because the sofa wouldn't fit down the stairs into the basement, so I had to go back to the store and pick out something else. I found a section from the same collection that looked like it ought to fit and thankfully when it showed up it did fit. I just had to give up on ever closing the door to the downstairs family room, something that I feel fine about.

2) Mom's birthday

My mom had her birthday last week and on Sunday night the Utah half of the family gathered to celebrate. I was able to try out the slow-motion video feature on my new camera for this shot of blowing out the candles:

We also played Ticket to Ride, and I won on a luck-of-the-draw draw-3-route cards on the last turn where I got two 20+ point routes that I'd already completed.

3)  Cold

It was cold this week

4) Snow

And then it snowed. A lot.

5) Birds

And some birds stopped by, giving me a chance to test out the 20x zoom on the new camera.




I also drove 50 miles on snowy/icy roads Friday night to go to a fantastic concert, but that deserves its own post.
