Starting to Heal

Starting to Heal

My body is starting to heal from the infection.  I’m still amazed that the flu had such and impact on my body.  From totally wiping me out, to disabling my leg, that flu was a doozie.

Goodbye Canon

I spent Saturday saying goodbye to my Canon camera equipment.  I’m selling it all.  It’s all packed and ready to ship to a new home.

Why?

Because I’ve found something better (as many of you know).  I’m 100% Fujifilm X-Trans cameras.  I’ve found the image quality so much better I am not regretting doing this.

Dormer Floor

Carpet Spectrum came to rip out the carpet that was damaged by the last tenant and install the new floor.  After the carpet and pad were removed, a beautiful red fir floor was under it.  The guys advised we don’t install a new floor, but have the wood floor refinished.  We all agreed and they recommended a man to refinish the floor.

Carpet Spectrum (on Route 21 between Palmyra and Marion) will get our repeat business.

Other Things

Other that that, the only other things going on is I’ve been working on Poser.  It’s pretty amazing software… when it works.  Others have been grumbling about the version 11 bugs, but being new to the game I’m none the wiser.

 

Painting the Studio

Today was spent painting the studio floor.  The floor is concrete, and it had been painted before, but over the years, it has started looking pretty bad.

I started by moving all of the stuff to one side, so I could paint the other side.  Of course, when painting a floor, you have to be careful not to paint yourself in to a corner.

After getting about 1/3rd of the floor painted, I had to get ready to meet with people.  Fortunately, it wasn’t for a shoot.  It would be difficult to do a shoot with 1/3rd of the studio floor being unusable.

For date night, Elizabethe and I decided to try out Papa C’s Pizza in Fairport because we had a coupon.  Once getting there, we learned our coupon would require us to purchase more than we could eat.  We ended up purchasing a pizza to take home with us for dinner tomorrow too.

A little about Papa C’s… this is one of those no-thrills restaurants.  There is diner style seating (booths and a few tables.)

We ordered an appetizer tray:  friend mushrooms, fried cauliflower, fried mozzarella and chicken nuggets, as well as a blue cheese dipping sauce and marinara dipping sauce.  It was okay.  I wasn’t impressed with the breading.  It was all a bit bland, as were the sauces.

Elizabethe ordered raviolis for dinner, and I ordered a full-rack of ribs.  Elizabethe’s raviolis were also kind of bland.  However, the ribs were prepared to perfection.

This place should be a rib house.  Their Italian fare is not very flavorful.  However, the ribs I could go back there again.

I’ll report on the pizza tomorrow.
