And a happy Snow day to you…

This week, Jess and I were happily snowed in.  Two extra days off of school meant that we had a lot of time to hang out together, something we didn’t get to do as often as we would like.  We had nice breakfasts, worked on the house, watched movies… what else could you ask for?

Then my boredom set it.  This is not insult to Jess, but rather, I’m not a person who is very good at hanging around inside a house for more than just a day.   One our second snow day, I decided to break out my camera to entertain myself.  In particular, we found the smile sensor on my camera to be quite interesting.  Apparently, when it is turned to this setting, when a smile is detected, the camera takes a picture.  Most of the time it was accurate, other times it caught pseudo smiles or smiles that weren’t there.

After that novelty wore off, I coaxed Jess into helping me with a project.  I took four pictures and with some editing on photoshop I came up with this:

Boredom at it’s semi-productive best.

When taking pictures inside the house and then working on the computer got old, we braved into the snowy cold of Cottage Grove.  As we usually do on snow days, we went for a walk just beyond where our house is, up into the hills:

  1. Your photoshopped image isn’t showing up for me. Also, there’s something super wonky going on in your header, different parts of it expand at different rates to fill my browser (which is set way wider than 1024). Just thought I’d let you know. I can screen cap if you want to see what it’s doing.

  2. Your dog looks like a horse in that picture.

  3. He is a horse. Big enough to ride!

  4. Oregon has hope for mastering the intracacies of a snow day yet. Random activities followed by peace. I love it.

  5. I think we need a couple more snow days to practice.
