Trying to catch up here -
These are not true macro photos - I no longer have a proper macro lens since I traded it in when I got the 70-200mm f/2.8.
I thought the 18-220mm zoomed all the way took close-ups just as well as the macro, but maybe I wasn't using the macro correctly? I have not tried turning my nifty-fifty around, but I read that it works.
Week 12 was supposed to be "Threes & Green" for the Feast of St. Patrick, but the greens have already been packed away. We did celebrate with Guinness Beef Stew, shamrock pretzels, picture books, and plenty of music. Evidently I just failed to pick up the camera!
March has kept us running hither and yon. Two SAM Graduations, two recitals, and the thick of theatre season. Passion Week is already upon us and next week is the whirlwind that is spring cleaning, Holy Week, and the Triduum. Looking at the planner, I also see Well Read Mom meeting, eye exams for three kids, a salon appointment for me, and a tour of The Hapsburgs exhibit. Oh, and dyeing Easter eggs, making hot cross buns and lamb cake.
I'd better close the laptop and finish The Betrothed! I hear it's worth it -
What are my words for the year? Focus, peace, and holy indifference. I will need to remember these.
From the Offertory:
Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth, and a door round my lips, that my heart may not incline to evil words, and seek excuses in sin.
