What I’m usually doing when I’m supposed to be doing something else…

If I’m on my computer, I’m probably playing with photoshop. Recently, I found some really old (1880s!!) cabinet photos in an old photo album, in an old chest full of stuff that had belonged to my grandmother-in-law. A lot of them were faded and cracked, but there was one of a family that wasn’t too bad, just a bunch of small white spots where the image had flaked away from the paper. So, I scanned it and touched it up, playing with it just for fun. You can see a before-and-after in the image below.


And if you look across the bottom of my screen in the image, you can see that there are also a couple games at the end of my dock. I try not to spend too much time on those, but it seems like a few minutes of playing turns into a few hours before I know it.

kindleIf I’m not on my computer, I’m probably reading (most likely on my kindle). This is my biggest distraction; I’ve lost entire days! When I’m reading a book or series, I hate to stop. So I pretty much read every single moment until I finish. I can even get a little obsessive; just ask my family. I tend to snap when interrupted. Oops.

      That’s so cool that you found a bunch of them, too. Did you ever find out anything about the photos and who was in them? I’d love to find out more about the people in my cabinet cards.
