Allan has been helping me learn how to use The Gimp better.Â I had a few minutes to “play” today, so I thought I would see what different filters do to a picture.Â If you click on one of the thumbnails, you can see a slide show of some of the different things I did.
This evening we had a mini vacation in our back yard. We grilled steaks, corn on the cob and had Roosterkoek (braai bread). We opened up some pickles we canned and a bag of chips. We then enjoyed a lazy dinner.
The kids enjoyed playing outside. Adrian helped Allan with the fire. Megan sat and watched. The older kids got everything ready, and then practiced hitting a target with their “throwing knives”.
We would have made some s’mores, but the mosquitoes decided that we made a good dinner too. So we ended up in the house, eating ice cream sandwiches. Everyone enjoyed Daddy reading the last chapter of The Magician’s Nephew.
I hope that your evening was as relaxing as ours!
She had a very busy day today. This morning she helped the big kids in school. She especially liked snuggling next to Andrea and doing Bible with her. Megan learned during “recess” that she could walk across the railing and back.
After lunch, stories and and nap, she was ready to go again.
Finally, it was time to settle down. She sat next to Flopsy and enjoyed watching everyone else play.
After eating most of Daddy’s favorite potato salad, she was ready to snuggle with Momma. After getting her teeth brushed, she happily headed off to bed. She knows she needs a good sleep in order to play hard again tomorrow.
