I need to figure out the flash/light settings on my little camera; some of the inside flash pictures are washed out, you can't even see the lights on the tree in the pictures I took (and I need to get a new card for the big camera).
I have been very lucky this year -- everything I've ordered for presents has ARRIVED. Now I just need to get over to See's and pick up some candies for my Mom-in-Law and mom's friend Bunnie; then, I THINK, I'm done except for baking for our care packages. (Which, despite our best hopes, may NOT get in the mail before Christmas...)
Many years ago, I bought a little set of the red statuettes they sell in Asian gift shops which claimed to be the Buddhas. One was Kuan Yin, of course the laughing Buddha (Budai/Hotei), and I'm not sure how many others I've misplaced over the years; and the fellow who has been standing on my dashboard guiding me for nearly the entire time I've owned it. I gave framefolly a ride last year and she looked at the little statue and said, "Is that Confucius?" I really wasn't sure (of course SHE knew!). So I was poking around this evening and it looks like, yes, it IS indeed Confucius, and not "one of the buddhas," as I had thought. Occasionally I need to study deeper when I get interested in things and not just take things at face value. I know better than that!
I cannot figure out how to turn off the flash on this camera. I have to find the instructions...
It rained in Phoenix today. Woot!
