Pajama Day

So, we officially took today as a pajama day at our house.  After our recent travels and a busy couple of days trying to get caught up, I just wanted to be comfy today and the boys are always more than happy to oblige me by having a pajama day.  I even managed to get some things accomplished--got my kitchen and bathrooms cleaned, the floors vacuumed, and 'work' work as well.  

Now, I am getting ready for a fun Friday night of curling up in bed to watch this week's episode of Survivor.  For many years, I rebelled against watching Survivor, partly because everyone else was and partly because I was in and out of the country.  (and to be honest, I saw Boston Rob on the Amazing Race and he got on my nerves!)  But, when Micah started med school and I found myself with more time on my hands at night, I started watching it and have wondered why it took me so long to start watching it.  I have loved this season, and while the vast majority of television that I 'watch' happens while I am scrapbooking or doing some other sort of online activity (i.e. reading blogs, checking forums, etc.), there are a few shows that I have to just put everything aside and watch and this is one of them.   Aren't you glad you know all the mundane details of my TV watching habits?

I was going through some photos today working on my P365 stuff and thought I would share a few photos from a few weeks ago.

I am including the original and the edited versions of this next photo, 
just so  you can see how much a little processing on a photo can do.
this is straight out of the camera (50 mm, f/2.5, SS 1/1600)--now that I look at those numbers, I can completely see how I really needed to slow my shutter speed down to allow more light in.

This is with a little editing in Lightroom to fix the exposure and lighten it up a bit--the beauty of shooting in RAW and using a program to process a bit.

This just cracks me up--William was being "Batman"

and this is his 'tough' face!

Happy Weekend!
