Wow, we are running out of month here. Just today and tomorrow left and then it will be a whole new year. Let us hope that the new year will be a better year for everyone.
As the post title says, this is the last Mandarin Orange Monday for 2013. I had a photo all ready to post, but then I thought I would try my hand at abstract. My friend Andrea took a photo of an egg frying in a pan, and turned it into a really cool piece of abstract art. So I figured that I should give it a try too.
I'm not sure what you see when you look at this it of bit of art (?), but I see a very happy snail. He is so pleased with himself because he has just finished the race and is crossing the finish line. I call him Mr. Tweedy.
I started with a milkweed plant from the Mrs' garden, and played with and applied an assortment of things in Photoshop. In all, I used layers, blending modes and filters. I did not start out to make anything in particular, but stopped when I was happy with it. Here's a peek at the original photo.
Yesterday, it rained all day and all through most of the night. It was a very good day to be lazy, and I was! I have a jigsaw puzzle program on my laptop that I played with for a while before putting my creative cap on.
Can you tell it's very dull at my house? lol. That is not a complaint though, I'm quite happy with "dull". Today will be busier because I have a couple of errands to do. This will make Pogo happy because he has been cooped up in the house for too long.
Today I thought I would share some of the neat stuff that friends send to me via email. Yesterday, these "picture sayings" had me laughing for quite a while. Some of them are so true, and deserve to be passed along to you. My favorites are the first two. So have a laugh and enjoy.
I am at work and it's time to check on the Mrs. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
