An Accurate Forecast


It started snowing a little before 1:00 this afternoon and is still coming down at 10:30 p.m., as predicted.

Today's Experiments




I recently bought a collection of vintage digital designs and figured I'd play a bit today. The first image is what I came up with by combining an old postcard texture with a rose photo I took a year or two ago, a couple other photos of mine, and a cool brush or two. The second image came about when I noticed a reflection of the sunset through the window behind me on my monitor while I was watching a Bob Dylan video. One thing led to another and I ended up with a four-shot, in-camera, multiple exposure of my computer screen while the Bob Dylan video played, followed by a Jakob Dylan video.

Scenes from the Day After Christmas









It's been pretty laid back around here, and that's how we like it.

A few years ago, I wrote a short Christmas story. Today I revised it and published it here.

Sweet Potato Rolls






I noticed some sweet potatoes in the basket beneath the counter and got a hankering for sweet potato rolls (not that I'd ever had any). It didn't take long to find a recipe online, so I decided to give it a go. The flavor was great, but the texture was a bit dry: more like biscuits than yeast rolls. Not terribly surprising, I guess, since converting regular recipes to gluten-free ones can be tricky. If I try again, I'll add more water (maybe milk?) and less of my gf flour mix.

Another Go-Round


The azalea plant Dennis gave me for Valentine's Day is blooming again, and it's beautiful.

When Life Gives You Snow





We got a little more snow last night: enough to keep the kids outside for hours this afternoon.
