Sunshine, dinner, voting, movies!

This bit of sunshine is dedicated to all of you~ (K9, yours is further down- lol!)
I seem to be all better- lets hope I stay that way! Thank you for your notes, and calls, and IM's :)

For Dinner tonight~

Roasted Pork Loin with garlic, and rosemary from my garden
Rich brown pork gravy
Steamed rice
Sweet buttered corn

Baby lima beans- long simmered with a tiny bit of salted pork
Sweet tea- of course :)

On Sunday hubby and I went to Staples and we picked up a software program called Printshop 22. I didn't have a good photo editor- and I am playing with this one~
I'm almost afraid of all the things I will be able to do with this!
If you have used this software- let me know what you think of it.

**Also- if you use a photo editor that you really like- tell me about it- please.

I'm having wayyyy to much fun with this silly thing! LOL :)

I couldn't find a single ear ring- so I used silver door handles and shrunk them down!!! I'm a goof!


GO out and VOTE tomorrow!!!

Did any of you see the film called "Obsession" yesterday?


VOTE tomorrow!!!


Whoo- hoo! "CARS" comes out on DVD tomorrow!!! :)

What a fun movie that was! I'm sure before the week is over we will have a copy-

Want to come over and watch it with us??? :) We'll make room for you! :)

Hope you all have a good week!

I use the Gnu Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) it's not bad and best part is it's free. You can give a try with

I would certainly love to drop in and watch cars and eat a bit of that dinner too. Your garden too merits a looking at.

May the people we voted for win!

I like the photo you did in printshop.

Gnomeself Be True said...

NO! No voting unless you're a white male above 35...AND you promise to vote just like I would!
Bring back the poll taxes, that's what I say!

WOMAN - them door handles are hot!

Mayden' s Voyage said...

Kate- this software will be more fun than I've had in a while- which is kind of sad in a way- lol :)

/t- of all people, I KNEW you would appreciate the artistic lisence I took with those door handle ear rings :)

SJ- the garden is fading- but there's usually something good for dinner :) Just let me know when you're in the area :)

Little Lamb- Whoever wins...I hope they can work together! And at least the political ads are over :)

Iamnot- You're so cute when you're riled up :P

K9- Been dreary here too- a good day to stay inside and play with photoshop :)
I left Pug a note about your "soft spot" (the one behind your ears, /grrrr :) LOL!

Pink- have you seen the movie? It is so cute :) Hope you have safe travels- and be careful on that ice- I'm so sorry about the spill!

Libby- thanks :) Good to see you today:) I'm worried about Ohio- I'd love to hear your take on things after the election is over...

X- I've seen Cars at least 3 times- and will see it quite a few more-
I hope that by "voted early and OFTEN" you meant how many times you've voted in the last 20 years or so...and not more than once in this particular election :)
I might ask for some pointers in Photoshop :)

Baron...I thought so too! :)

Lady Prism said...

ThursdayNext said...

Oh its been a while! For some reason I can't post from home, but my connection at work will allow me. :) Of course coming here is always a ray of sunshine! Mmmm - that dinner menu sounds so perfect for an early autumn evening. I think your tiara needs to be much bigger.

Gary said...

I am glad things are going well for you.

That printshop sounds like a lot of fun.

Baron Ectar said...

Dog gone it I always miss the best dinners!

boneman said...

Yes'm. Like Pink Reefer, I use Corel Photopaintshop. I love it, though it took me way long to make it do things I wanted done.
Still, I love to take pictures of things and make the fence disappear! With cows, it's fun. With lions, folks think twice before going to the zoo!

Well, gal. It be in the mail!
I hope y'all like it.
And, just like when I sent a painting t'Jean, it comes with a free music thingie.

As fer votin'....yer cotton pickin' right I did!
I be one of the reasons ol' Donald resigned! AND I'M PROUD OF IT!

....well except the emperor dubya will probably replace him with another "yes man"....
