February Break Update

It's been a busy week. I'm trying to spin, knit, get the house in order, do my taxes and amuse the kids. Tuesday, we went to the park for a bit. Somehow, I smashed my UV Filter. Always use one! You never know when that can happen and it protects the lens. Do the math, a replacement filter is like $10. I have no idea how it happened and didn't even notice it until I got home! I thought the lens was dirty and that's why I got a diagonal ghost image on my pictures.
The line starts at the lower left, just above the railing and goes all the way up. Also, in the bottom center. Pooh. Lens was fine, thankfully. The next day, we went to Best Buy to visit the TV I want to buy and to get a new filter.

Today, I took them to the Long Island Children's museum. I almost always enjoy going there but like to do so when it's not crowded. I was there only 12 minutes after the place openned and it was filled to the gills. Lots of interesting exhibits though.

Girl in a bubble.

Self portrait (yes, I focus with hand underneath, I was shielding lens from the track lighting)

Some dried up flowers yet, when will it be spring?

Spring is coming! Last night I saw clusters of bulbs sprouting at the Forest Hills train station!
