Mums Day stuff

Photo by SnaggleTooth May 2018

I had to work Mother's Day, but the kids made sure I wasn't forgotten.

The older one got me these on a plate covered with Truffles n pieces of all natural cake from Aldi's Market. We recently got that new store in town, but I haven't had time to shop there yet.

They were good n good for me too! Still have a few Truffles left.

I had very little time for image making this week. Got just a few done before PC decided not to let me crop without errors, facilitating a reboot, so this is all that I got done before I ran out of time.

Maybe I'll get back to it from home, later. It's alot more time consuming n complicated that way.

Same image as above, with color change.

I used the same mirror angle numbers on all of these.

Then I crop in closer, n do it again.

Here is the the last one old PC let me do without crashing. Well it is old!
 
After the reboot I began on a different angle, but got no further than trying to crop this to a squarer format... to be continued.

No problems with straight pics tho.

Also for Mum's Day My younger one got me this T-shirt, which I like. You have to really work to see the dark blue words tho-

Now our area is having storm issues, but not as bad as New Hampshire n Connecticut. They both got Twisters this week!

The flowers are going crazy n the pollen is proliferating. Trees are leafing, at least what's left of them after the storms this year- so many came down there are piles n piles of wood everywhere on the roadsides.
I shall return...

In the center of town at the Wharf park earlier in the week, I found alot of assorted Daffodils blooming in a large section.

The other patch was totally fried on my normal walk, so I took advantage of these, n had time to play with them a bit.

I've been having  a way less stressful week, not working. I ended up doing less than I'd planned, due to getting very sore digging the garden. I had waited too long so the weeds already took it over. Usually I do it in early April to beat the growth.

Heavy rains had gotten in the way of Days Off garden work last month. Really tho, I need all the rest I can catch up on. I just hope I don't get super tired right away when  going back to work this week-end.

Now I feel like doing more, but time is up, n I'm choosing to take it easy my last free-feeling Vaca Day. I've been eating alot of my fave foods n feel fat from ice cream almost every day too!


I did a few marker fill-in pics , but didn't get to other fun  stuff, or get up n out early, My body is stuck in the night schedule still.

Now I'll go nuts cramming tomorrow with things to do before the grind at work gets me too sore for fun again.This week, sleeping n shopping were the most fun I could manage. I did spent alot more time on facebook. I probably should have cleaned more.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2018

Now I need to gear up to have little un-pressured time again. It definitely helps to decompress once in awhile. Without time to be creative I just don't feel like myself.

One more day...

Green Buds

Photo by SnaggleTooth April 2018

Despite the soggy weather last week for Day Off 1 was a complete washout. I did a bare minimum shopping trip, n My clothes were drenched. The air was 50 F degrees, but the falling water with wind felt about 40 F.

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2018

Day Off 2 was crammed with too much to get done, including a couple B-day present searches.

I didn't make it to the Library computer, so I apologize for not commenting on some blogs this week. I did read most from home, tho.

Thanks for asking that question, Granny Annie. Everyone had a "no way" response to that one !

I also didn't get to see the Dafodils to take a pic on the way home, because I went to other stores. I bet they were pretty.

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2018

These pics used to alter today are from the past 3 weeks walks. Early buds, fatter buds, then worn but open blossoms with heads down in the rainy n cool conditions last week.

I didn't alternate natural color images with color changed images for this photo. Plus, I seem to have lost the crop version used for the altered here, so this is the pre-crop one.

This week's Days Off are toasty n nice, making up for the last one. I will walk by those Daffies this week. I like these 2-tone ones best, n easier to photograph too.

Same image as above, different colors.

I believe I'll have some free vaca days next week, n have so much to do. Hopefully I'll get some fun plus visits in. I haven't had a week off the work grind since the beginning of September!


Image by SnaggleTooth April 2018I've been very achy the past few weeks, but so have the 20-something folks at work, so maybe it is a flu thing. Hopefully I'll be alot better after more rest. 

Here comes summertime, n I'm ready!
