Camera Wi-Fi explained...well a little bit anyway!

On Saturday I was walking by a window in my kitchen when I caught something red out of the corner of my eye and I thought, what is that, a small dog with a red collar?. I peeked out the blinds and to my surprise there sat Woody, that red-headed woodpecker I've been trying to get a picture of for four years now. He was pecking at a tree stump of a dead tree which had just been cut down across the street. He is very sly, even if he's on a tree out back whenever I grab my camera he moves to the other side of the tree just outta sight but still pecking away. Then if I move closer he flies away. It's been infuriating! I went to grab my phone and it occurred to me that I would never get a good zoomed in picture with my iPhone so I went looking for my new camera. I mean, what did it matter, he was likely to be long gone before I got back anyway. Surprise again, there he was. He even appeared to be posing for me :o) I was so excited! Finally a good picture!

Now normally to upload pictures I would have had to fire up my computer which is so slow (due to where I live) that it can be a chore. Then to transfer images from my camera to my phone I email them to myself and save them to my camera roll from my email. A lot of work for a couple of pictures but even with fancy camera apps for my iPhone I'm still not overly impressed with the photos it takes all the time. Besides the camera always uses a lot of juice so I try to keep a camera in my purse too. With my old  point and shoot camera finally giving up I had to have another. One with a little ooomph too! I haven't had much of a chance to take pictures just for the sake of taking pictures here lately so I hadn't taken many with my new Canon Powershot S110 let alone figured out anything much about it. I knew it had a Wi-Fi setting but I figured it would once again play into a slow internet connection and not be of much use to me. You never know until you try, though. I wanted to post that picture of Woody on Instagram and I wanted to do it right then. The camera supposedly had Wi-Fi so why not try it out. So I pulled out the manual and all it said was to connect the camera to your device and/or check the cd for more information. I thought, well here we go...going to have to fire up that computer after all and spend two hours figuring it out. As it turned out I didn't need to fire up the computer or the home internet to hook it up to my phone. Your phone will set up a separate network for the camera. Just remember when connecting to the app to choose the camera network on your phone first or it won't connect. I downloaded the Canon CameraWindow app and after some tinkering I had it ready to transfer images. I was actually flabbergasted that it worked so well! I'm sold! This is the way to take photos if you like to post online. You can also send images to your computer but I haven't gotten that far. I am way too excited about just being able to send them to my phone for now. If you are in the market for a new camera, get one with Wi-Fi capability. I love it and I guarantee you will too! ♥

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ok, so last night I had a dream that I was standing on the roof watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers play "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" and I was featured in the video. I was looking great in a cute outfit with some type of hat and having a ball! lol The next thing I know I'm running through the jungle looking worse for wear with a dinosaur chasing me.  We watched an episode of Terra Nova and then Jurassic Park III was on so I know why I was dreaming of dinosaurs but where did the Red Hot Chili Peppers come from? I was so excited I woke up and had to pee!

How cool can you get?
I love a man that cooks! Although Flea scares me a bit!
Now this is a fashion statement if I ever saw one.

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
