Day 11 & 12

Friday and Saturday

I went to the market to buy vegetables on Saturday! =) Sadly, I don't know very many people who enjoy grocery shopping as much as I do. It's one of my favourite activities!!! One of the things I miss about living in North America is the farmer's market that I usually go to every Saturday. All the different types of apples and squashes that I get to pick from. Plus, they are all locally grown and certified organic!! Sadly, such things are not easy to find where I am. And when I do find organic products, they are so so so very much more expensive! But, I make do with other produce that I cannot easily find in North America =p Such as: PINK DRAGONFRUIT!! Unlike the ones I've found in Canada (at very high prices!) which are white on the inside, these ones are a rich deep pink colour and are sweeter!!

Tuesday's the next chemotherapy session. There's so much we want to do before she becomes 'bedridden' again for about 5 days. I really wished I had more time. When she wanted cake on Friday, I had to go buy some because I just didn't have the time to make it. =(

Ok, I really really need to buy a camera. Any good ones to rec? Budget is about $150. And, it has to be easy enough to use because I'm truly a tech-idiot!

Hey Gertrude! Thanks so much for visiting my blog :). I really don't know much about photography. I mean, I took a class, but I can't really see a difference in the picture quality between my dad's expensive camera and mine (in fact, I think I like mine better!). So I'm no professional, but I really like Kodak cameras. I think the picture quality of Cannons isn't as good. But it's just a personal preference. My sis has a Nikon and likes hers the best, so maybe we're all just biased!

Hope that was somewhat hepful!

Grocery shopping is one of my favorite activities! Visiting farmer's markets, too =)

As for the camera, I love my Canon point & shoot. It's compact, easy to use & reliable =)

Pink dragonfruit is LOVELY!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! So sweet and beautiful gorgeous color!

I recommend a Canon Powershot. Mine is a Canon Powershot SX200, and it cost abt $300, I think...I'd say think a budget of at least $200's worth it!

We got a Nikon Coolpix camera for $120. It is great.

And we love grocery shopping. Love it.
