Like this one. Picture from here

What household chore do you absolutely enjoy doing? (can be indoor or outdoor) I enjoy washing the dishes by hand. The hot water, the bubbles. I do love it. Whenever I worked in a cafe or restaurant, that was the best part of the job, bussing the tables and washing the dishes. It’s great. I even loved those big dish washing machines where you rinse the dishes put them in a flat bin and push them through the machine to have them come out sparkling clean on the other side.  Of course, not everything could go into that monstrosity, so I still had to clean the delicate dishes. And I loved the high pressure water hose I could use to clean stubborn food. I wish I had that here.  I don’t have many dishes to wash nowadays since I don’t have the energy to stand above a sink for very long. And the setup in my current kitchen is pretty awful — I dunno who designed this kitchen, but they had absolutely no idea how a kitchen works. But you know what? I still enjoy doing washing dishes.

Create a sentence with the words “neon green” and train”. The train box cars that one can use to build a home with in the game Fallout 4 come in many colors, including faded red, motley purple, nuclear yellow, and neon green. (more of a turquoise, but that didn’t fit the prompt)

Other than your cell phone what can you always be found with? Contrary to popular belief, I don’t carry my phone with me everywhere I go. I forget it more often than not.  There isn’t one thing that I actually *always* have on me, though I should have my inhaler with me everywhere I go. I tend to forget that too. I suppose if I went out more often, I’d start remembering my inhaler — but not my phone. My phone just isn’t all that important to me.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.  The usual… Messing around with Photoshop. hahaha!  I’m learning how to tweak things with overlays and filters, and I took this screenshot of a foggy day in Skyrim.  I wanted to see if I could still convey the feeling of “foggy” without the god-awful screening they have over everything. Like I said in previous posts about the in-game filters, it looks fine in 3D (you can even see the color of the flowers in the game…) but not in a 2D image (as you can see).  I think it came out pretty well.

    Your photoshopping in Skyrim is working so well! It’s startling to see how much more clarity there is after you tweak those images versus the originals. Good job!! And I used to like washing the dishes by hand. These days? I have a dishwasher and I use it. Less clutter that way…but I get the relaxation of hand washing..

      Thanks! It’s fun to learn new things in Photoshop, and there’s a guy online who is really interesting to watch. Experimenting is fun too. 🙂

    “Edited to remove the overuse of the word actually.” Lol!!
    Since I installed the pedometer, I even remember to take my phone on midnight potty trips, usually. I want credit for every single step!! 😉

      hehehe. My husband has a pedometer he wears on his wrist. It makes a little light show when he reaches his step goal. He loves that. I have one too. It’s sitting in my bathroom on a shelf. hahahaha!
