Rob was on his way early this morning leaving me behind with the usual "first thing" household chores consisting of making the bed, doing up the dishes I was too tired to do up last night since it was only a couple of plates and such, and of course most important attending to our Aussie's needs.
My brother, Allan called at 8 am, dropping over shortly after to pickup the laptop Rob and I had given our, almost 14 year old, Great Nephew, Riley. This was in lieu of the usual GC we gift him for his Birthdays. This will be a good start for him to work himself up to a new one down the line some time.
This morning I was scheduled to attend a meeting at the Wiarton Chamber Office to learn a new computer program. It didn't seem too much of a learning curve for me with many of its features similar to that of Blogger that I do my daily journal on here. I will have to put it to practice on a day that I am not feeling so weary (must be all that leftover Turkey we have been eating lately).
The meeting carried on for about 2 hours, bringing me back home after the lunch hour.
Back home I had myself some lunch consisting of a wonderful moist Turkey sandwich, before answering a couple of emails before Rob arrived back home.
The Source Store, downtown Wiarton, has After Christmas Sales running until the 31st of December, so I headed down there to check out the cameras they had available. This little excursion took at least another couple hours out of my day, as I also had to stop in at The Berford Street Tea Room, and the Rankin River Trading Co..
At the Rankin River Trading Co. all their Christmas decor, gifts and wrappings were 50% off. I had a great time in the Christmas aisles deciding should I or shouldn't I for next Year. Funny thing was there was a lovely lady there too doing the same as I was. She also begins her Christmas Shopping afterwards and all through the next Year, having it all done but for a few trinkets by the time December rolls around.
After I checked out each and every Camera at The Source, I headed back up the street to The Berford Street Tea Room where I had a lovely chat with owners, Jim and Debby. Their neighbour, Victor Last, had gifted them a collage of photos of days gone by in Wiarton.
Leaving the Tea Room I collected my packages I had left at Rankin River Trading Co. and headed home for the second time this day. Rob had also been gone, and also returned not long after I had.
I think I am also weary from spending so much time checking and re-checking specs on different brands of Cameras. It takes a lot of energy reading through review after review, spec after spec, and then sometimes re-reading when you forgot what you have checked already as you have checked so many ! Oh Man ....
I think after two days of all of this checking I have found a durable Point & Shoot camera that might work for my needs. Check it out HERE. If anyone out there has had any personal experience with this Panasonic model or any other one, please let me know, as I would love more personal input if possible.
The percentage of reviews in favour of this camera I had read did outweigh the cons, HERE. Finally a decision ! (I hope the right one).
Well that is pretty much my day, with again another early night ahead of me I am sure, as last night was a restless sleep night. There seems to have been a lot of early nights for me lately, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
