I had the misfortune to come down with a stomach bug that luckily only lasted 24 hours. This is a photo of part of my nightstand, featuring a bottle of papaya enzymes, a container of cantaloupe that I was able to keep down towards the end of the night, and a bottle of water.
We don’t get much snow where I live and when we do it’s a calamity because of all the ice that accompanies it. This is what I woke up to the day after I was sick.

I decided to play around with the shutter priority function on the PowerShot.

I needed to pump milk for my son today and this is the amount I got out of two sessions. Why did I take a picture of this? Because ever since I stopped pumping regularly, it’s become harder for me to get more than an ounce of milk after multiple pumpings. What you see here is almost 4 ounces of milk. Proud of myself? You bet.
