Monday Randomness

This post is really just about this picture. I'm just adding in some extra stuff because I couldn't do a whole post on just one picture.

I did it in Photoshop, messing around with layer masks. I've always wanted to do a picture like this (black & white background, colored subject). I was very proud of myself for figuring it out, so I had to share! (Yes, I know certain family members already know how to do this. I'm slow and independent. So shush.) It's our poor, tired potato bush. It still has a ton of flowers, but you can see they are starting to lose their color and vibrancy.

This Week's Menu:
Monday: Slow cooker Carnitas (Pork tacos)
Tuesday: Pork Sandwiches (from leftovers)
Wednesday: Spaghetti & bread
Thursday: Biscuits and gravy
Friday: Pizza
Saturday & Sunday: Most likely leftovers, and/or hot dogs

Both of the kids have been picking up so many new words and sentences lately, and they jabber constantly. Jack's had a few really cute misplaced words or just horribly cute mispronunciations:

"I need a sheeps!" - When there was no sheet on his bed. (Funnily enough, I think I've said this sentence to Ben before...)
"Can has some soups?" - Wanting the soup I was making for dinner
"Look! A crock pop!" - While I was setting the crock pot on the counter
"I want bruffa teefs!" - Translation: "I wanna brush my teeth!" This one cracks us up.

They make me smile every day.

And knitting... well... umm...

Not much, sorry. I've been spending so much time reading about photography and Photoshop and researching cameras, I haven't had much desire to knit. I've been obsessed with taking better pictures.

I realized that I really don't take many pictures at all. I used to. I have very few of the kids aside from right after they were born, or the family in general. And I'd like to take better pictures of my food and knitting. So I've been messing around with that stuff. But I did finish the body part of the second Honey Quartet glove. Now I just need to put the thumbs on both of them.

Have a great Monday!

now that is the cutest sentences I have ever heard. It just makes me want to come over and kiss them up. I don't know how you stand it with all of the cuteness around all of the time. I can't wait to show Gampa.
Cool that you are experimenting with photoshop. I drives me crazy. I think taking better pictures is awesome though. That is my goal too.

Can you post whatever you learn, camera-wise? I would like to take better pictures as well, I just don't know where to start...I've googled a few places and it overwhelms me.

I just thought I would stop in and read baby words. They make me so happy inside. I have to take Elliot down to do his drivers test today and I just wanted some reminders of the joys of being a mother.
Have a good day!
