Question: Could you remind me what kind of digital camera you have? And the features you like the most about your camera? (I am in the market for a new one)

I feels very much like magic, that i am going to Egypt tomorrow morning. Can't wait to see the pyramids, it is truly a childhood dream coming true.

This week, magic to me is sitting down outside my new house at night, tired but satisfied after a long days work, enjoying my new place and the cool breeze after a hot day.
New Beck album? Are you kidding? Oh my sweet G, gotta buy it! I'm addicted to that man and his music. Always something new cool on his albums.

LOVE the Beck album. When I first listened to it, it seemed just okay, but after listening to it a few times, I'm nuts about it. It hasn't left my car stereo since I bought it a few weeks ago. I'm especially in love with track six.

The job I do at the newspaper I work at put together weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. (kinda like a mini scrapbook each Sunday), I love the "magic" of putting in the people who have turned 100! I once had a woman named Agnes who was 106. WOW!

As you wrote, there're so very classic the paintings. I like the one with a tree and birds, I think I'll use this inspiration in my scrapbooking! Thank you!!
Hmmm ... I'd like to live one day of your life full of inspiration and wonderfull activities! You inspire me so much everytime I come here! Already, I see the things I've never seen before or I didn't really take care of it. You opened my eyes.
Ula love Elsie, hehehe.
See you soon (I'm going on my summer holidays till 18.08).

Those are really amazing paintings! Right now, all the rainy, stormy weather we're getting is like magic. It puts me in such a relaxed, creative mood!

My magic this week was when I realized that someone was thinking of me today. I know this because I can tell who was checking out my blog.
It's fun to know that somebody, out of the blue, was thinking of me and decided to read my blog. That seemed magical to me. A little ray of sunshine on a very stormy day.
