I took this shot on a gray day and the sky was completely gray, no clouds to make it interesting.  I used kk texture grunged up 2 on the pinlight blend mode, opacity 70%, which now gives interest to the sky.

Purple Bow

I played with split toning a bit on this one and like the subtle colors it added to this picture.  Split toning is a way to give your highlights and shadows some color for those of you wondering what on earth it means.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday April 19


This is one of the local marinas.

Drink of Choice:

Ice tea and water.


From Above:

This dove was above me.  I liked this shot as you can see the beak and also the different patterns on the chest feathers and wing.   I wanted to get closer but was afraid that if I did, it would take off.

Look What I Found:

This week as part of my science activity I brought tongs for the kids to use as well as tissue paper.  When I was cleaning up my room I found this purple bow of tissue paper tied around the handle of tongs.  I don't know who did it, but it sure was sweet.

Little Things Thursday April 16

These are some of the kids before going into the bee garden.  Kids have to wear the bee bonnets-adults are optional which was good as it would have been hard to take pictures with one on.

Last week co op had an annual mandatory meeting for returning members.  They are going to divide people into groups for subbing and said that even if you were not called on to sub they wanted you there the whole afternoon anyway.  With the space we have I don't see how that is possible as there is not enough room for everyone.  They are not sure if they will divide up into six groups on call to sub three times a semester or three larger groups to be on call ten times a semester.

Three times a semester is reasonable, but ten times is not.  Today I got to read the volunteer forms which say nothing about groups.  It does say on that written account that if you are not needed to sub you can leave the campus.   I wonder what will happen if they decide to do the three groups on call ten times after people have been assigned to teaching and those people decide ten times is too much.  Co op will be in a bind.
