Good morning. It's 5 a.m. and in a couple of hours I'll be going home to spend some fun time with Pogo. Thank goodness the snow did not build up anything much. Just enough to cover everything with a light blanket of white. Tonight we will be on a high wind watch through Thursday. Then I guess we'll be getting more snow by Sunday. Of course! That's when I come back to work next!
The Mrs had a very nice Christmas, and was quite mellow and tired by the time I got here last evening. Once she was all tucked in bed for the night, I was able to have a nice chat with Su via Skype messaging.
For whatever reasons, we were all forced to change from Windows Live to Skype for messaging. I suppose at some time this will feel easier. But for now, it is a pain in the neck. It took me 45 minutes to figure out how I might get into Skype in order to chat. They just would not accept my email, name or password. Grrrr.
However, I did finally get in, and had a wonderful learning lesson. Su is so smart! Every time we chat, she teaches me something new about Photoshop. She is beginning to feel much better. We talked it over and I think we've decided that she will post her parts to the kit during January, and I will post some new freebies. We are aiming to be back on track with the kits by February. If it changes, we'll let you know.
I took a few photos of the gifts under my tree to share. There wasn't enough room under the tree so some stuff spilled over to the floor nearby.
See the jar in the front? Well, it has a butterfly in it that flutters about, and is quite fun to watch.
My little tree now has six new ornaments, that have been given to me (and Pogo) since I started blogging. It really is a tree of fond memories.
The one thing that I had asked Santa for was a point and shoot camera that I might carry about sometimes instead of my DSLR. As usual, he was v-e-r-r-y good to me! This is what he brought for me to play with.
So now, I have lots of learning to do all over again. It is much lighter, and I've taken a few pretty good photos with it so far. However, there is a lot to learn about how to use the settings, close-ups, etc. I see another very busy year coming up for me!
Now I think I'll catch up a bit with my emails and do a bit of blog reading. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
