Please be good to our planet.
Leave her healthy. Do your share.
Show us you care.

Know her value. Treasure her worth. 
Be gentle with her please,

SIGH . . .

 What's that you say?  You'd like to take my picture?  Again?
 Is this good enough for you?  Satisfied?
Sigh . . .

CATURDAY ART ~ ZOEY PAINTS HER EASTER EGGS and PHOTO HUNT: INDIGO

 So, there I was this morning ~ painting my Easter eggs, 
and yes ~ admittedly
I did get a little bit carried away.  
I'm not sure I was painting my eggs to look like my fur, or
if I painted my fur to look like my eggs.  I furget!  
It's like which came first?  The chicken or the egg?
Anyway, don't you think my furs look purrty in pastels?
[do not worry, it is only Photoshop paint!]
Speaking of Photoshop, sometimes my friends send me emails 
and ask how some things are done.
Below is how you can paint some of your Easter eggs.  
These are just using the very basic Photoshop tools, 
and lastly using the Inner Shadow on all the eggs.

The hu-mom says it's a whole lot easier to paint the pretend eggs with Photoshop
than it is to paint real eggs in real life!

PHOTO HUNT: INDIGO

I really wanted to take part in Photo Hunt today, to use this photo taken recently
at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.
 For any visitor with an interest in architecture, engineering or design this
is a "must visit".  And for families with children, an "absolute must visit".
Below, indigo blocks lay atop lighted glass in the interactive play area
of PLAY WORK BUILD.  Part of the Architectural Toy Collection,
it's just one of the many fascinating exhibits you'll enjoy, whatever your age!

THANKFUL THURSDAY

  
An old movie we may have laughed over.  
A breaking news story we may have discussed.
A car passes by, same model, same color.
A familiar smell.  A recipe.
Seeing a couple walk by, greying hair, maybe one with a cane,
but hand holding hand.  A bit of envy rises.
I never know what will trigger a memory, certainly photographs do.  
I am thankful to have them.
