snow day

12 Jan

I woke up this morning with a little black rain cloud over my head. Despite my overwhelming inclination to stew in a pot of my own grump, I decided that I needed to get over it. And then I looked out the window and saw that it’s snowing today for (basically) the first time all winter. There’s something so beautiful about the first snowfall. It makes me feel, if not happy, then at least not as Scroogey.

I found a fun program online to make the picture more interesting. It’s called Pixlr-o-matic. It’s super easy (and free) and you don’t have to download anything. Here’s what the original picture looked like before all the voodoo magic: 

Still pretty, but just not quite as interesting.

I can see myself wasting a lot of time  having a lot of fun with this program.
