I’ve had a really nice day. Today was an early rise, long thinking, cool and breezy, smiley, huggy, happy kind of day.
My sister came over and we read out loud from a book that my mom lent me a long time ago that I hadn’t had time to read yet. It’s about a woman’s journey into an Amish community. Very interesting stuff, really, and easily applicable to any life in need of some serenity. It’s a lot about a busy and unique and artistic kind of person on a quest for simplicity and community. I really like it so far. We read it almost to the end- it was really nice to just rock on the front porch with some family and a good book.
We also went to the annual Jamboree at my dad’s work. We listened to music, ate very greasy food, and looked at the animals. Fun.
I finally have some pictures for you all. Good for me, eh?
One day Tuula was sleeping on my couch and we noticed that the blanket made her look like a little butterfly. I couldn’t use a flash, and so unfortunately the picture turned out like crap. I still think she’s adorable though.
Sometimes, there is nothing but the Beatles that will satisfy.
Ok, side note, but something that has been really bugging me- as much as I will resize and adjust a photo in photoshop or whatever, when I go to put it on LJ it automatically resizes it to 320×270 or something. I can resize it from there, but then it looks super pixelated, so i end up just going with the resized version anyway. I see that other people can resize their photos and they look great- please let me in on your secret!!! I guess i don’t care that much, but after so long just being mildly annoyed… well, now I’d really like to know how!
Edit: Thanks Chris! Hopefully that worked and my pictures are sized how I want! – EDIT: didn’t work.
