i'm smitten with picnik--the photo editing site. i haven't even joined, so much that you can do for free. i can fiddle away hours playing with text and saturation, exposure and frames.
last night was r's basketball year-end get-together at the local dairy queen. the boys were their usual silly, adorable spunky selves. 10 and 11 year old boys.
we've always been especially thankful for the men--in our case, all men that have stepped up to coach our boys in sports. i would love to do it, red would love to do it. only one little itty-bitty problem. we aren't sporty. we learn the sports our boys are wild about as they are playing. makes for fun side-lines, but not so helpful coaches. so here we were again, thankful for coach gary for being who we needed--being the person we cannot be--for our son and for the other boys on this team.
it is always a treat to hear a coach say a few kind and helpful words to young people. i only teared up a teeny-tiny bit.
as we stepped outside, the sky was still all soft and whisper-y--a glow in shades of blue, lavender, pink and orange.
by the time we arrived home and i high-tailed it to the backyard this is what it looked like.
if you are in the states, there seems to be a good chance your sky last night was similarly beautiful. my facebook homepage was streaming with photos from all over--all sunsets.
i wondered what i could possibly change on this picture of the sky on picnik. nothing. it seems it was already perfectly altered.
love and good lighting
