Good morning! Today’s tidbits include my quirky take of the photo (above); PicMonkey has a daguerreotype frame that turns an ordinary photo into this smoky rendition.
I also did this to the same photo: an off-center heart-shaped version.
So…yesterday I had lunch with an old friend. We were colleagues for three years when we both worked in a private foster family agency (after my retirement from the county career). She lives in Northern California and works for State Rehab. now.
All of us were very close working together in an agency with a very authoritarian/mercurial CEO…it was us against her. That kind of setting brings people together. We all had regular get-togethers while we were working there, and then after we each left…but now we are all scattered throughout the state.
So it was good to catch up.
Afterwards I saw The Glass Castle, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The film flashed back and forth in time, bringing us moments in childhood interspersed with the adult scenes. It was a riveting “true story” brought to film. I also loved the book version, which I read before I started blogging.
Last night, I watched more of Season III of The Ranch, on Netflix, which I didn’t enjoy very much at first…but now I’m riveted. I’m not sure why. Probably because I finally allowed the scenes with Debra Winger and Sam Elliott (both of whom I enjoy) to overshadow the silliness of Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson.
I’ve been watching the TV season of the new show Doubt, with Katherine Heigl…and I see that nothing is scheduled for next week, so I am guessing it is going on hiatus. I hate when that happens, especially with a cliff-hanger ending.
How is your weekend shaping up? Plans? Adventures?
