I just made that word up--cute, ain't it? I quite agree with you.
It is used to describe my exhilaration at my new camera lens which arrived via UPS last week. It's a 50mm and has already earned my undying love and admiration. Remember those photos from my last post? The macro shots that sharply captured the details? Yeah, I'm dizzy with happiness.
The photo above where my hair is wet and tangled? The very one. It was made yesterday after the twin and I ran to feed the neighbor's horses. Their house is a little distance from ours and I suggested that we drive the Jeep since it looked like rain. But Elisabeth claimed that she didn't want to waste the gas...so we walked.
And the clouds promptly unleashed their fury as we began the trek home. A fact that meant charging through the pouring rain, squishing through the soggy ditch, and getting cold feet (literally) because I had the wonderful presence of mind to wear flip-flops.
Oh, for a turquoise umbrella when you need one.
But at least we saved the miniscule amount of gas it would have taken to drive there, right? If I come down with a life-threatening case of pneumonia, y'all keep reminding my twin of this fact, got it? ;)
Note: We had Dominoe's pizza at a friend's house afterwards, so everything was fine. (I've found a good pepperoni pizza can cure a lot of things...how about you?)
