Snow on spruce
We went to the Co-op today to do a big grocery shopping in advance of the coming snowstorm. They are still predicting 15″ for Saturday. That’s a lot of snow, more than we’ve had for a few years. Sam is doing remarkably well. He can’t shovel snow obviously but we plowed together in a trial run yesterday. There was just an inch or two of new snow on the driveway. I drove the pickup truck and he operated the plow. It worked okay, but it’s a different story to do it in a foot of snow! We’ll see how it goes.
That kind of major grocery run takes all day. That’s my mantra, but I seem to forget how time-consuming it is. I always think I’ll have time to work on (play with) one of my projects. I did have a few minutes, so I got my playtime. I took a photo recently of these spruce boughs with a layer of snow. I just love the pattern the snow makes, how it simplifies the branch structure. I can probably use this for something. The gray-on-white one is especially pretty.
I am finding GIMP almost impossible to work with because 1) the screen text is intolerably small and 2) it has way more complicated features than I will ever need or understand. There’s no reason why I should have to struggle with this. I need to find a new image editing tool. I refuse to use Adobe products that want to rope me into cloud-based software. There has to be something else out there…
