Inside information

During the day yesterday, we filmed more footage for the gardening show which is due to come out in January or February. I am learning a lot about the process. I can't believe how much work goes into a half-hour segment.

The camera guy is amazing, a real pro. He spends up to an hour preparing each shot, getting rid of undesirable light in about a dozen different ways using blankets, sheets of colored cellophane, aluminum foil, screens and other devices, as well as adding light with various bulbs and reflectors.

Nursery party

Had a fun Christmas party at my house last night. I wish I would have taken more pictures, but I was pretty busy hosting. Above is my mother, right, with Darlene and Sharon.
