Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday because....hey, I made it to Thursday!  Our busy weeks are drawing to a close for this spring season.  I, for one, am glad.  It's all been good, but a little downtime is in order.  



"It is not enough to be busy.  So are the ants.  The question is: What are we busy about?"  

Henry David Thoreau 




Linking up today with Teresa.....

  15. How did you do color in only one spot? Cool! I'm glad you'll be having some summer time off soon.. then you can be "retired" for a few months. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. Teresa, Picmonkey is a great/easy place to play around with photographs. You can do a lot with the free features. I changed the photo to b/w and then used the "brush" to remove the b/w from the wagon. Red is its original color.

  17. Nice use of selective color in this shot. It's a great scene. Hope you get some down time soon. Busy is good but sometimes we all need a break to regroup.

  18. I'm a great ant (aunt) actually! I'm just busy because there's too much to do... Good luck to getting down down time!

  19. I agree that sometimes we can be so busy at being busy, it's silly. Take a rest, sister friend, and make a cake. :)

  28. We need to learn many things from ants. They are busy all the time and we cannot be like them...

  29. Busy is very good, but it makes a weekend wiz by way too fast.

  30. Nice use of selective color here.

  31. Nice processing, red is the best colour i find with this technique, I've tried green, yellow and blue, but it doesn't quite have the same effect.
