A Full Day

Saturday was a full day. I left the house at 8:30am for the quilt guild meetings and didn't get home till 5pm. The meetings went well but they there were lots of details with the quilt show that needed to be ironed out.

I figured on a pretty quiet evening when I got home - but surprise the new laptop I ordered arrived (3 days early). So I spent the evening setting up the system and software.

Web Image Toys

I have been playing with some of the free cool image tools on the web this week so here is one of those images. This is from a site that lets you build an avatar/cartoon of yourself (or anyone else). They then e-mail you the image and you can use it pretty much anywhere. The only mistake I made on this one way that I forgot to change the eyebrow color to brown instead of black. Otherwise I think it is pretty close to what I look like. Damon also went to the site and made an image of himself that he is using on FaceBook - I am not posting it here as his cartoon self is making a rude hand gesture.

Catching up in the Garden

The garden was very busy with me away the past week or so. As you can see the sunflowers are now in bloom. I have a couple tiny tomatoes starting to form and the blueberries are starting to turn blue. Of course the busiest part of the garden was the weeds. Damon's bed of peppers is overrun with weeds - some as tall as the pepper plants themselves.
