Digital Art Meme – Last Days of the Season

Home Christmas Lights - Impressions - Seurat Afternooon 35 pct

We had a brown Christmas, which suited me fine, followed by several days of lots of rain which wasn’t too much fun and then a day of sleet and then snow and now its cold so the snow is staying. So I got a Christmas photo of house all lit up with the snow which adds some reflection and makes the light a lot more even and later. I used Topaz Impressions software on this shot and then backed the effect by about 2/3 to capture the last days of the Christmas season.

The season started to end at about 5:30 the day after Christmas. Heather’s aunt, a retired school teacher, gave us all Barnes and Noble Bookstore gift cards and since we are all big readers we decided to go buy a bunch of books. So I was coming out of the store and it was raining and I was headed for the car in the rain and a car could have run over me but I was watching the drivers eyes and she wasn’t looking where I was, she was looking the other way and so I got out of her way and raised my arms up in a “What the heck lady” motion. She rolled her window down and said; “I wasn’t going to hit you and you don’t need to give me hand gestures in front of my kids.” I was like huh? and yelled “I didn’t do that!” and then she gave me the old fingered salute. Hah! it was comical and I guess that Christmas was about over, for her. I am still celebrating!!

I am staying home with the family this week eating too much, staying up too late, and sitting around too much. Back to the real world next week helping America fulfill her energy needs.

    Oh, have fun and grumpy old broads like that == well, they’re just jealous because they’re not having the fun that you are!! It looks like the endless rain is about to back off here and we’ve been promised SUNSHINE and mild temperatures!!!

    We’ve had everything but the snow staying around. We got a few flurries yesterday and some are predicted for tonight, but nothing is supposed to stick. It does help convey the message of the season for the Christmas lights though.

    I know that you’d never give her the finger, Yogi (or – would you?). Bob nearly got killed in Denver, too, just prior to Christmas. Too many people feeling too hassled I think. Happy 2016 to you and your family. Stop eating Christmas cookies for goodness sake (me, too).

    last days of this year 🙂 Glad you got some snow to lit up your world. Sitting around with family is a great thing. I miss that as my family is scattered all over the place.

    Thanks for linking up and Happy New Year.
