Yes, today I met Roy Toft. He taught a photography workshop to the kids after school today. I walked right in and said I was a fan and had a nice chat with him. He was very nice (good sense of humor) and did not mind one bit that I was stalking him. What is funny is I don’t get star struck. I could see George Clooney walking down the street and give him a nod but talking photos is something I love to do. I really love his work so it was neat to talk to him. Of course he was talking to a bunch of elementary school kids so he was not getting too technical. I just wanted to raise my hand and start talking aperture and shutter speeds. I figured that would be a bit tacky since he was there to teach them. Tyler really enjoyed it and I could see he was inspired by the workshop. And of course I asked Dawn to take a photo of us. It was funny having two photographers in front of the camera. We kept giving poor Dawn instructions on how to take the photo.
I have to say that today was a bright day! I worked out, worked, and came home for a bit. Janine stopped by with a nice surprise for me and we had a pleasant afternoon over tea. This is a perk of being a stay-at-home-mom. I also received quite a box of cutting supplies from my new sponsor Acme United/Westcott. Have you ever seen so many different scissors? I got their new Laser Ruler that I saw debuted at CHA and some great tearing rulers. Having a scissor company backing you is too darn cool! I asked Janine to pinch me because having all these wonderful companies backing me is a TOTAL dream come true. I am afraid to wake up.
Then it was on to school to complete my "Mission". Now I need to stay on track and take that photography trip one day (already on the Life List)!
And can I say this was all capped off by Pete making dinner. There are just days I don’t have anything left in me to make dinner (truthfully it is the one job I detest) so it is so nice when he comes home and offers to handle it. I know his days are long so it means a lot that he does that. Plus he cooks so much better than I do.
