A journal of sorts.

I am an avid photographer with a love for digital processing. The Bearded One and I have become "Townies" once again and are in the process of transforming our suburban nest into a peaceful refuge.
This blog is where I like to stash things. An assortment of random thoughts, a recipe or two, a few of my favorite photos, and the processing thereof.

Satisfied Sunday

Cottage Life

Today was a lovely guilt free day. I accomplished very little but did so with great gusto. The rain came in the middle of the night and washed a lot of the gravel dust of the ferns and berries along our long driveway. It felt good to be "clean". The Bearded One and I are getting geared up for another great week of re-inventing ourselves (that's what we do... no TV and all) we spend our time developing our new and improved selves, including planning our menus ahead a little. Usually we are on two different schedules as far as grazing goes. The Bearded One forgets to eat, and I forget not to. We however, fully embrace the new day theory. Tomorrow is one you know... A new day that is. Now go and make the best of it!

Before and After

A couple more Norwegian boat pictures. Sam is the one who restored it, Melody is our Landlord. The sun was going down when they decided to check out it's sea-worthiness. Shooting with the gear I have in low light, left me with "noisy" images. Sometimes when that happens it helps to process them a little more.

I like to tell stories with my photos and I think they are more animated with a little boost. Much the same way that Norman Rockwell paintings give that little extra "life". It might be over the top for some, but It I find that it brings a smile to my face and captures the essence of the moment.

Having fun with regular "snap shots"...

The setting sun really played on the water and the beach, giving everything a nice warm glow.

Healthy Choices

Tomorrow is "Chub Cam" and I've decided that I will keep track of my progress using the "Stick O' Butter" meter. That means that every 1/4 lb is one cube or stick. Get it? So for every pound gone it's four sticks. Cheesy isn't it? And just to be clear, I love butter and still eat it... often.

Okay, Yesterdays accounting... complete with a little food porn.




Hmmm... Pause for Thought

A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don't allow the happy moment, because they're so busy trying to get a happy life.
