It is final,

I am going to purchase a good quality digital camera! Every day I see a photo that will never be taken because I do not have a camera. This morning I saw the sweetest thing that I will probably never see again. There were two crows on a telephone wire canoodling like a couple of love birds. I have never seen crows in a cuddle before.
They were centered on the wire so the only backdrop was a perfect bright blue sky. It was a fantastic image! One crow had it's head bent down cuddled in the others chest while the other crow groomed the bent head. So adorable!
The camera I decided I must have is an EOS Digital Rebel XT camera.

On the subject of small animals; in theory my gerbil should have babies either today or tomorrow. I peeked at them this morning before I left and they were all cuddled in a little stack snoozing away. No labor happening there. Who knows, maybe the wee lad just wasn't mature enough to make gerbil babies on the first go round? She is looking a little fatter. I guess we will just wait and see.

Volunteering at the teen center went wonderfully last night! The kids liked my mashed potatoes. I think I might have made too many, but they turned out surprisingly yummy for the large quantity. (We packed up leftovers for them to serve at lunch today)
I boiled 20#s of spuds with garlic cloves so they had a very light garlic flavor to them. I used a whole bottle of cream and 4 sticks of butter in them so they were creamy goodness. Serious comfort food for sure!
Next month I want to make my 3 bean vegetarian chili. I could make cornbread to go along with it. Mmmmm. This is all making me hungry!
A funny thing that happened was when I showed up it turned out my old friend Dave and his wife were the ones who actually ran the thing. I had no idea! It was a happy surprise, but a surprise none the less.
It is such a great program!

I want to come to your house for dinner!
3 bean veggie chilli with cornbread sounds pretty damned good to me.
Seriously though, good for you for doing your bit.
