Somemommy forgot....


Faraday: *grumble*

Don't look now, Maxie, but we're so not getting sunpuddles today.

Maxwell: Wait, whut?
Faraday: Come sees for yourselfs.


Maxwell: Yup. You're right, dood. They're down.
 *sighhhh*
When does Momma get home from work again?


Faraday: *heavy sigh* 
I dunno Maxie. 
Do I looks like I does maths and stuffs? 
I didn't think so.


Maxwell: Doooood. It's gonna be a looooong day.


Oops... Sorry, kiddoes!

Trying out a new lens



Confession time:  as much fun as it is to see Allie in a sunpuddle, this new 300mm prime lens is going to be used for something else.


(sorry, girlie...Cut it out with the stink eye, already!)



It's going to be mounted to this motorized polar mount for astrophotography.
 

The good news: it'll be fun. The bad news: it's like relearning how to take photos all over again!
(A professional photographer friend told the mom "welcome to Bizarro World!" when she contacted him to ask for pointers, MOL!)

At least she'll be sitting at the computer (warm laps FTW!) for loads of hours, processing the pictures she takes!

Here's her first attempt: The Orion Nebula. (She has a long way to go, and we don't think Hubble's going to need to worry about being out of a job any time soon, HA!)



Did your humans get anything out of the ordinary for the holidays?

Monday Gruntles™



Maxwell: Allie, dood, did you see the sidelong shade the Brat was throwing Momma this morning?




Allie: Well, first, I'm not a "dood" and second, he was just his usual not-a-morning-person.

Wasn't he?

Maxwell: Oh, no. He was totally giving her some serious side-eye. Take a look.


Here, I'll biggify it for you....


Allie: Oh yes. I stand corrected.
