The start of something

So everyone else has these blogs so I thought I'd actually start one.  Not sure how well I'll keep up as I'm terrible at it usually.  Anyway.  The name is Carrie.  Mother of one 2 legged child, 3 feline children and 2 canine children.  Married and trying to convince the husband that we need either one or two (or more) equine children as well. So far he hasn't bought it.  I'll keep working on him.

So what is this gonna be for? Usually the journals are the rantings. This I'm going to try and avoid the rantings but sometimes it may slip up and there may be a few in here.

I've recently picked up writing again.  Mind you can it really be called "Picked up" when you don't actually have to pick up a pen nowadays? Maybe I should say started writing again.  That's probably better.  Mind you it's all saved on the computer.  I do have to make a note to myself that I'll need to pick up a portable hardrive just to keep all the writing on and safe.  I've also started really working on some photography. I got a new camera before Christmas from hubby and absolutely love it.  I had been going to friend's horse shows trying to prove to him that I needed a new camera and it finally worked.  Got the Canon Eos Rebel T1i and I am in love with it.  I've taken a few online photography courses.   I'm going to post the difference in pictures between what I was using and the Canon, just to compare.

This is my friend on her horse at one of the horse shows back in June.  This was just a digital Camera as opposed to the Digital Single Lens Reflex camera that has become yet another of my children.

Same friend, same horse but the new camera. :) The first weekend I had it.  LOVE it!

So I guess what I'm saying is this will probably be for photography and writing.  Possibly, not sure yet we'll have to see what happens.

And now I bid you adieu.  Though not sure who's reading it.


  1. Your pictures look good... I can't wait to see more of them.

  2. Then be prepared. There's gonna be sooooo much more in this next blog post.
