Off to a good start

It’s only one day into the new year, but I’m off to a good start on my drop in the Bucket List.  I’ve already gotten right on item #3 and cleansed my house of not one, but TWO items (I know, I’m such an over achiever… ha!).  The two pairs of shoes were pretty easy to part with, but I never said it had to be hard.  

Also, I’ve begun working on item #2.  I started reading the manual to my camera.  You know what I realize after reading it for about 30 minutes?  I realize that I’m lucky to have taken any good pictures at all!  Ever!  I don’t have a clue about an awful lot of what they’re talking about.  I’m learning about white balance, apertures, f-stops, and such, and  I have a long ways to go.

Luckily there are 364 more days in this new year.  I’m looking forward to them!

  1. Hey, stopped by from NaBloPoMo which took me to your old blog. Are you signed up with your new blog yet?

    Good luck with your “drop in the bucket” list. I love that! I have a similar list that I’m working on but they are bigger things that will take me a while to do.

    • I need to change my blog on NaBloPoMo. Thanks for the reminder. I’ll get to that now. I’ll also look at your list of bigger things, since one of my goals was to come up with some more “bucket-y” type things for my lists so it’s not as much of just a “to do” list.

  2. Hey, good job. You’ve inspired me! I put two items (one clothing, one household) in my discard pile earlier this morning.

    • Thanks! The camera manual is going to involve a lot of reading and re-reading… I had to pull it out today already just to remember some of what I read yesterday and wanted to try out! I did manage to mess with some settings that I’d never tried before, though, so it’s all good.
