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.

Way too tired Friday...

January 6th 4:00pm 37 degrees and raining here at the cottage

Cottage Living

I had the opportunity to watch two of my grand kids today. They grow up so fast. Max caterwauled for about 30 seconds when his mother left, just long enough for her to walk out to the car. Then He was fine. His usual chatty, cheerful self. His needs are simple. Scrambled eggs with ketchup for breakfast, apple slices with peanut butter for a snack, and a peanut butter and Jelly sandwich cut into the shape of two dinosaurs with the help of an imaginative "cookie-cutter-like" thing for lunch. Baby Milo was quite content to sit in his little crescent shaped cushion and and giggle as long as I was looking directly into his face. If I turned away for even a moment the smile would fade and he would quickly voice his displeasure, which actually gave grandma an excuse to accomplish absolutely nothing. At Max's prompting we spent the afternoon watching "He-man and She-ra" Masters of the Universe, a classic early 80's cartoon...the very long early episode where Adam, aka He-man, first discovers his long lost sister. Is it me or does He-man seem to be sporting a fake tan. I remember having to sit through this with my oldest kids when they were little.


Before and After

Tonight I was definitely out of steam and out of ideas. I thought this was kind of fitting. A dim light bulb covered with cobwebs.

Used a "topaz" filter for this one... wanted art rather than photo.

Pause for thought

This clip is only one minute and fifteen seconds long. It seems we were watching all afternoon.

Until next time...

now this is sleeping on the job.

  1. I'm having a 'dim bulb' kind of day, too - but yours IS art!
