It’s a lazy day and there’s nothing better for lazing about than the pajamas that Somnia created for Chic². In three version and multiple colors, there’s surely going to be one that tickles your fancy. Being an Oregonian, I opted for the one with the raindrops. As a follow-up to the post on alternatives to PhotoShop®, I played with two of the alternatives I featured. This picture was done using the retro effects on Pixlr.com. It took less than a minute to do and was so intuitive, I didn’t even look for directions.
Then I used PicMonkey’s collage maker to put together these snaps of the shoes and socks combo from Tea Time. They come in tons of colors and the socks come in vanilla cream and cocoa brown. Each pair of shoes comes with both colors.
Using alternatives to PhotoShop - I edited this with LunaPic to emphasize the pouring rain.
I have many great memories of my father. I remember him singing and playing banjo, dancing with my mom and telling stories with a twinkle in his eye. I remember his voice and his laughter. One of my strongest and most powerful memories, though, is from a day he made me miserable and angry.
My dad and a picture of the woods above the river
I grew up in the country on the far side of a lake, deep in the woods. It was a 3.5 mile walk to the school bus, though I often shaved some off that by taking deer paths through the woods. That day it was raining and dad offered to give me a ride to the school bus stop. We had gone about a mile when a squirrel ran in front of the car and we could hear a slight thud as it was struck by the car. Dad pulled over to make sure it was dead, but it had run off into the woods.
