My favorite program is amazing! Not only will it turn a photo into a painting, it will also create a sketched look. Originally a photo taken late this evening of the church on the corner.
Yes, it’s 2007 and I’m still talking about rain! We were beginning to feel desperate again, but received much appreciated rainfall yesterday and again tonight. We had high winds last night, but fortunately, the only damage was a downed limb on the mulberry tree out by the road. I hear thunder in the distance, so I better log off!
Mama, in the background, has taught her calf well. They think if they lie very still, head and body as flat on the ground as possible, they can’t be seen. Well, that works some of the time, but not this time… I not only spotted him, I captured him digitally!
I keep meeting these traveling critters on the roads. Fortunately, I have enough sense to keep my distance from some of them. Although the first photo looks as if I’m close enough to touch, it’s really just my telephoto lens giving that illusion. I love that sucker… not the deadly copperhead snake for heaven’s sake, the lens!
Yeah, it’s tax time cause I’m a procrastinator. The good news is I’m nearly ready to start filling out the forms… as in, tomorrow if I can get my last receipts in order and get a final total to fill in the blanks. I hate this stuff, I really do. I would rather wade through vats of snakes! Um… well… actually, that’s a lie, I hate snakes too! I’ll just continue on my personal deadline to finish before the 1st of April and stop the “I’d rather’s”! Wish me luck!
but fun if you can sketch or draw.
As you can tell, I’ve got nothing to say or report…. but boy do I know how to waste time!
I finally had a creative streak! Of course the spark came from a challenge idea and I’m very grateful for the jump start. Sometimes I open my graphic software and nothing comes to mind. When you have an object or idea to get you going, it’s a fantastic feeling to actually “see” an idea come to life.

Although the hubby usually mows (cause he likes it!), I made a round or two today. Then my Mom and I cleaned the garden spot at her house and I prepared it for planting with the tractor and tiller. Once I start wanting to work outdoors, it’s just a matter of time before I go nuts buying and planting flowers!
I’m not in the vegetable gardening mood, but I wouldn’t mind a few home grown tomatoes to accompany my meals. On second thought, now that my taste buds are awakened by the thought of fresh veggies, I just might have to help her out after all!
The Charolais and Black cow produced a smoky colored calf. This red Limousin cow and the Charolais bull produced a tan, almost yellow color. I think I’m going to like this cross, but admit the smoky color is my favorite so far. We’re hoping to keep a few heifers out of this bull, we shall see if we like their looks as they grow. Of course we need to get some girls on the ground, these first two are boys!
