I can’t show you my Friday Finds today? I had it all planned. I was ready to take advantage of the sunshine so I could take a good photo. The sun is streaming in my kitchen window. Just where it needs to shine for the photo I had planned. Everything was in place – my ‘find’ was staged and ready to pose for her photo, and then. . .oh, no! The battery in my camera was dead! My camera told me. She said, ‘Battery dead’. Plain and simple. Just like that. I wasn’t surprised but I could deal with it – I had another battery in my camera bag. No problem! At least I thought so!
Retrieving the second battery from my camera bag – and grabbing my battery charger for the dearly used battery – I was confident. Within minutes I would have the photos I wanted to share with you today. But, it was not meant to be. You see, the ‘new’ battery was so dead it didn’t even have enough power for my camera tell me this one needed to be charged, too. Then I remembered that I had quickly switched batteries a few weeks ago while taking photos of a gorgeous sunset at the Oregon Coast. When I returned to the car I didn’t do what I normally do with batteries that need to be charged – and then. . .I forgot!
So, today, would you just take my word for it that I have a wonderful, new Christmas find that is embellishing my kitchen? I’ll show you a little peak at something that will give you a hint but I will save the story to tell you another day. After that silly battery has been fully charged and the other battery is securely locked in place in the charger I’ll share a photo and tell you all about it!
I have a new-to-me teakettle. She looks something like this. Similar – but different. She’s the same color – and shape - and she is decorated with holly. While my battery charges, I think I’ll heat some water and have a relaxing cup of tea!
