Good afternoon. Wow, the strangest things happen! I've just spent twenty minutes trying to get on the internet. I wonder if the internet providers shut down for a few minutes every day to save money the same way the electric companies do. And yes, the electric companies do have "brown out" moments. It's usually during the night time.
Yesterday, I managed to get quite a few errands done, including the birthday shopping. After Janet got here later in the afternoon, we went food shopping to Stop & Shop to take advantage of a fabulous sale on Marie Calendar dinners. It's time to stock up the freezer. I also picked up a nice ham. This also went into the freezer. I won't be cooking a big dinner for Easter because I have to work all weekend, and most all of the dwarfs will be spending the day with their families.
Last night after Janet had gone home, Pogo and I curled up with some warm fuzzy blankets to watch television. Not too long after, I drifted off to sleep and slept through most of this morning. I guess my busy day wore me out.
Tomorrow's theme at Photo Art Friday is to make graffiti. I am not a graffiti sort of person so I almost decided to skip this challenge. But then after seeing some of the examples that Bonnie gave us, I thought I would give it a try.
Sometimes I save some of the cute graphics that people send me in emails. You never know when they might come in handy. So, first I went to Google to find me a stone (or brick) wall. I brought the wall up into Photoshop, then I went looking for a couple of beauties that I had save from past emails. These, too, were sent to Photoshop.
Next I found me a photo of an ocean beach, along with a seashell. All of these different items were layered on to the wall with various degrees (and layers) of opacity, brightness and blend modes. When I was happy with my graffiti painting, I found me a "paint" font at da.fonts (Deviant Art) to paint my words on to the wall.
Because it is already afternoon, and I have to work in the morning, I will post my photo art today. I hope you can enjoy the humor in it. The beauties represent me and a friend enjoying our "golden years".
I'm happy that some of you enjoyed yesterday's PS tip, and I'm working on another one for next week. In between all this fun playing, I have to find time to work on my photo lessons. Joe will be home from work soon and I will take him food shopping. After that, I will be cooking up a big batch of haddock for supper. There is quite a bit of it so I will give some of it to Joe.
Now I must get busy here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
