I Do Want to Post

Image by SnaggleTooth Dec 2017

Wow, alot has has conspired to get in my way of blogging the past few weeks. I wasn't able to get to a computer, or play with pics, but did get some photos for playing with later.

Unexpectedly I was able to get to my uncle's memorial service because it was scheduled for 2 weeks later, plus a long-distance ride was offered.

So began days of compounded allergic reactions n days in a row of missed sleep. I still don't feel recovered. My regular errands never got done last week n a game of Catch-Up is in progress.

It seems trying to get Xmas stuff begun is taking priority in my brain this week, as I try to squeeze in extra store browse time somewhere. Last year at this time my shopping was mostly done. I have just started, n have few ideas.

Then after I got back I had moved so many items to bring with me, I couldn't find them after returning because they weren't in the normal spot.

Image by SnaggleTooth Dec 2017

Most notably, was a 4 hour search yesterday because I knew I'd moved my data stick, that I always put pics on from the cam to use in the paint program, plus bring it to the library. I could remember they were keeping my cam charger company somewhere when packed up to leave for the ride back.

I went nuts unable to locate it, thinking I couldn't even transfer pics to play with, n what would I do were it left somewhere. All my passwords for payment online is in there... Need a back-up in a home location soon!

Bingo, it was in my drink cooler bag- whew! That's the only reason I had time for a few images to post today.

Now the rush is on to spend all my dough, but missed some work-pay so gotta keep it cheap this season. Back to the shopping with no time rush.

Happy bargain  hunting! 

And finding...

Hope all in the USA have  good Thanksgiving. I love excuses to eat  turkey n visit at the same time. Yay I have the day off! Boo Xmas n New Years I'm  supposed to work.

Got alot of leftovers to bring home n pies too!

 Played with an old pc pic again, the instruments , most now stored away. I miss having the option to play with them all. Plus they are pretty, n made fun altered images!

I have gobbled enough for one day..

Older is Better

It's been a tough week for me so far, feeling pushed to the brink of walking out by folks at work, n fighting the urge to lose my cool.

Image by SnaggleTooth 2017

Another paternal uncle passed away the other day. I hate that it looks like I probably can't make the funeral service 400 miles away.

There's only one remaining brother of my Dad, who passed away 26 years ago. I want to say that the living brother won, "The Last One Standing Award,"  but it must feel terrible to get that prize, n be witness to burying the rest.

Most of my cousins are on a group family page on fb n that's how everyone found out. That's good n bad at the same time.

He had been ill, n in Hospice care since the summer. But no matter how long you are expecting it, or think you are accepting it already, you never seem to be prepared for the flood of over-whelming emotions that wash over you in waves when it happens with those you have known your entire life.

Even when you try to carry on with a normal day, it is tough to ignore  what your brain n heart are doing.   

I tend to bottle it up n do ok with distractions, but then one little thing will do me in emotionally, even when not connected to what is upsetting me.

This pic was on the old PC n is a scan done back in November 2005 of found leaves. Thought I'd try my new button pushing on it to see what happens...

This year's leaves pale in comparison.

This crop from the original is what I used. On some without color change I increased saturation plus contrast only. I do miss the leaves from the old woods.

The third week of October in New England you wouldn't expect to see Monarch butterflies in a blooming butterfly bush in 70 F weather, but that's what this pic is...

Wow, that DayLight Savings extra hour of rest before getting out for work really has me wanting more sleep than just that. What a relief to feel a little less in a rush  until I get into work.

Image by SanggleTooth November 2017

Now the cooler temps are settling in for a bit finally, and that adds to my craving to not get up.

Image by SanggleTooth November 2017

The past few weeks I've been watching Season One of Starz original "Camelot" series on dvd, from the library. Another take on The King Arthur n Merlin tales, on which I have read many books. I like the different approach to the cast characters and what they did with authentic looking sets.

The story has a twist with a half sister plus magic, n the plot is interesting. I think the theme music could be better, n some of the tunes are adding to my sleepy streak so it has taken me awhile to get thru it. I admit I'm hooked on the show, n want to see more of it. There are alot of unexpected elements put into the story, tho truely unique from any other movies or books on the ancient subject.

I only changed color saturation n contrast to the red pics here.

Today's leafy pic was a bit out of focus due to the wind, but still pretty n produced some interesting, tho fuzzy altered images. I could never dither colors like that by hand without taking weeks to get it half as good. Yay button pushing!

Most of the Fall colors are muted this week. I still try to get pics tho -


The Arctic cold is reported to be coming in for the week-end.
Now back home to a winter's nap...
