Surprise! It’s a new camera!

Right now I’m in San Francisco meeting up with some bloggies πŸ™‚ More on that later.

This is my surprise!


I got a new-to-me Nikon D40 on Craigslist! It came with a different lens than the kit lens (one for longer distances), so I need to get a close-up lens too. The guy did give me the kit lens for free, but it’s broken – if I can get it fixed I might.

In between figuring out my camera and procrastinating, I found time to scare the cats.

Bo thinks I’m being stupid.

I love the camera. I made this for breakfast yesterday (recipe to come) – “brancakes“:

Nice picture, right? Back later. Happy Sunday! P.S. There’s a free concert today in Golden Gate Park featuring Train, Colbie Caillat, and Howie Day. It’s noon-5pm; Bobby and I will be there for at least some of it.

P.P.S. Bobby is going to start doing P90X and I might try some of the exercises with him. Any thoughts? (He was going to try training for a half-marathon, but I think this is a better option.)

  1. Nice purchase!

    I’ve heard nothing but good things about P90X! I haven’t tried it myself but know others who use it and have had great success!

  2. Awesome new camera! I love that breakfast picture it took. You can definitely see the difference. I would love to have a SLR/DSLR myself πŸ™‚

  3. Nice find! I love my SLR and I’m sure you will too πŸ™‚
    I have P90X and I do really like some of the workouts. I especially like the Plyometrics one-definitely feel the burn doing that one!

  4. Eating Bender posted a very thorough review of the P90X workouts. Sounds intense, but definitely a great way to get in shape. Go Bobby.

    Congrats on the new camera Maggie. Exciting!

    Bo totally looks like he’s thinking “What the hell?” πŸ˜‰

    Brancakes – yes, recipe please.

  5. YAY! congrast on your new baby. what kind of lens did it come with?

    hope you had a fun day of bloggie visiting…looking forward to the update. and your brancake recipe!

  6. argg you’re making me jealous! i really want a new camera but my wallet doesn’t like that idea at all πŸ™‚ i guess i will make some sort of compromise here!
    have a great week
