I used to do this all the time when my first Mac came with a simple photo program. I took flower pictures from another site and put children's faces in the middle of the blossom. That was ten years ago! I didn't have a clue about resolution so they are very fuzzy because they're small, BUT! I have just found a free web program that will let me do these again. It is difficult for me to learn so I try, try, and try again. I started completely over about a dozen times and I think maybe I've got it somewhat now! Yea! Success is reward enough.
So, here is my first flower child of 2015.
"Oldies" from 10 years ago

By the way, the temperature this morning at 7:30am was -14°!
Today I feel better. It has almost been a week of repetitive days. Get up, make breakfast, clean up dishes, make beds, clean me up, sit at computer. Read stuff. Make lunch, cleanup, nap, sit at computer, play a bit, make dinner, clean up, watch TV, go to bed. Over and OVER, and OVER! No unread books on hand. My stash wasn't supposed to last into March! We should be in SC. Normally, we would be there.
I was beginning to feel very angry. Today the sun came out and I feel better, a little better. But… I see more cold and threatening days ahead well into March. DANG! I’m missing my Snowbird friends, Marie, Mona, Patty, Mary, Sally, Linda and Carol; my SC neighborhood pals, Jeanette, Vickie, Tina, Dina and Jackie. My longtime perfect hairdresser is retiring February 28 and I will miss her celebration. Besides that I will have to find a replacement. Pity party, please.
Looking ahead isn’t promising. The local forecast temperatures are still too cold to leave the cabin. Frozen pipes would be disastrous. I know, I know, stop my complaining! Others have it worse. Much worse. I’m just ranting, anyway. James is still staunchly guarding and protecting Cabin Tranquillity.
Now down to the past seven days of doing much of nothing.
Photomanipulations, and one baking event. Still painfully trying to be a productive prisoner.
To make this one I took 6 of my red flower pictures, layered them, colorized and spit out my mood into the "Shades of Red" creation. It took a while.
Nothing new here. Same ole' same ole' and I'm sorry if I bore you but I am just documenting this month's weather conditions. It is VERY windy and gusty today, and tonight it will be much colder. We're fortunate that we aren't walloped like the people in the Boston area and others up there!
