Slow Sunday

Today was a slow day. We turned the clocks ahead last night so we slept as long as we could this morning. We didn’t get up until almost 10 am. It was good to sleep. My husband made corn muffins as part of our breakfast this morning. I love those corn muffins. Especially when the are warm and the butter melts. Yum!

This afternoon the sun stayed out longer as you would expect when you move your clocks ahead each year. The sunset was beautiful. I don’t see skies like this too often anymore. Since I moved into the city 3 years ago, I no longer have the views I used to have. I miss those views.

I only walked 1 mile today but I did close the exercise ring. It does’t make sense since yesterday was so off.

Lazy Saturday

We previously had plans to go to dinner at Jill’s house but they had to cancel because Mr. Dail was out of town. So during the day we just went shopping. My husband bought some spring decorating items. We then went to Total Wine and bought a case of wine. We had a coupon and a gift card to use. We got some nice wines.

As we usually do we had crackers and cheese before dinner. I took a picture.

I don’t understand today’s walking. I walked 2.92 miles, 10,570 steps and I still wasn’t able to close the exercise circle on the Apple Watch. Sometimes I think he doesn’t keep track of my exercise very well. Oh well.

Instagram Likes

Tonight for dinner my husband had scallops and risotto. I took a picture of it and put it on Instagram. It is now my most liked picture. As of this posting it has 52 likes. I know that’s not a lot but that is for me. I was very pleased with the number. However, what I think is a good picture usually doesn’t get many likes. I guess it was the tags I used to get it attention. I don’t know. What do you think?

I walked exactly 2 miles today.

Birthday Lunch

Today I went out to lunch with 9 ladies who I used to teach with. It was Kate’s birthday so we all met for lunch to help her celebrate her birthday. It was fun catching up with everyone. I hope to have more of these opportunities in the future. Sandy put me on the list so that I’d be informed when the next lunch is scheduled.

I walked 1.22 miles today.

Cinematic Short Film

Today I decided to make a short film. I did some research and found the best settings on my Canon 80D for a cinematic look to my shots. I then used Final Cut Pro to figure out settings to make it look cinematic in the editing. Notice the letterbox look. I also found a perfect piece of music to go with the video. I think it looks pretty good. It’s very short but I think it looks cool. And hey, subscribe to my YouTube channel.

Today I walked 2.06 miles.

No Picture

I totally forgot to take a picture of anything today. I was busy doing things around the house and ended up getting 13 minutes of exercise before even going on my walk. But I did walk but only had to walk 1.54 miles to complete the 30 minutes of exercise on the Apple Watch.

Concert and Dinner

Late this afternoon we went to a concert at the National Cathedral. The music and singing were beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Then we went to La Piquette for dinner. I love that place. I had a delicious half chicken while the husband had duck breast. And we had a wonderful bottle of wine. We had a wonderful evening. When we came out of the cathedral the sun was beginning to set and it was the golden hour. Of course I had to whip out the iPhone and take some pictures. I love golden hour.

I walked 1.37 miles before the concert today.

Wineries and Friends

Today we went to two wineries and met some of our wine friends. We went to a barrel tasting at Gray Ghost vineyards. Then we went to Rappahannock Cellars and did a tasting and enjoyed some cheese and crackers. It was a long day but we had a good time. It was nice hanging out with our wine friends.

I walked 1.99 miles today. Not sure why I didn’t get to 2.

Old Time Lunch

Today for lunch I had some old time beefaroni. We ate this a lot as kids. I loved it! Plus today was a very windy day. I think it’s been referred to as #windmageddon. We had some really strong winds. Because of this my husband had the day off. I still walked though. I walked 2.08 miles in the building.

Early Morning Shot

Happy March 1st! It’s cloudy and a bit rainy. Does that mean March is coming in like a lion?

This morning I was laying in bed while my husband was getting ready for work. I thought the scene looked great. I quickly got my camera and tried to get a shot. Tell me what you think.

One thing I learned is that I need some new lenses that have a lower f-stop so that I can take low light photos and not see noise in the photos. I’ll get one.

Today I walked 2.12 miles indoors.
