Mess’n With Maddy

As if I don’t have anything else better to do with my time, I took a minute or two… three, quite possibly four or more give or take. Okay, more on the giving than the taking side of things but I try to excuse it all as “learning” and therefore not a complete waste of time that would be better spent scrubbing toilets or searching for that unrecognizable stench wafting down from the Farmers bedrooms. My “education” is much more enjoyable than mommy-maid duties and honestly, I just finished all the wash yesterday.

So here’s a picture of Maddy – Miss Is – straight out of the camera. She wasn’t too excited; she had to go to the bathroom and refused to ‘lift her skirt’ and go pioneer style in all the brush and I equally refused to pack up and go two seconds after reaching our destination. Anyway, there it is.


And then this is me playing with all sorts of fancy buttons and virtual tools. A little more pizzazz!

But there are so many things yet to discover. Like this.

Oh! There’s another one, just sitting there all unused and sad-looking!

I’m enjoying the ability to take a hum-drum, not-up-to-snuff picture and tweaking it into something worth printing.

Back to writing my RS lesson for Sunday… not nearly as much fun.
