Why orange sherbet? Our sky sometimes turns that color as the sun begins to think about setting. I download my photos and never capture that color exactly as I see it, but that's the nature of photography, I suppose. Does the camera lens capture what you see? That's why I edit my photos in Lightroom. It's an easy way to make small changes or dramatic changes. I have at least a hundred presets that I've purchased and they can keep me busy for a long time on just one photo. I become a bit crazed with the various looks I can create. I'm still working on this one. Those lines have got to go.
About two weeks ago my iMac display started blanking out on me. I had planned on doing a trade-in at the Mac store toward the end of 2014, but delayed my purchase with the idea that I had time and wanted to finish the house stuff first. Packed up my machine and headed to SLO. Two days later I picked up my new iMac after data transfer was complete. And it has problems. For some reason Safari and Google want nothing to do with each other on my new machine. I spent two and a half hours on the phone with Apple and we were unsuccessful in fixing the problem. I am using Firefox as a browser but I don't like it much. So today I pack up my new machine and drive back to SLO for them to fix it. Annoying, to say the least.
We have had virtually no rain during the month of January and there is nothing in the forecast. So the hills are green for a short while, I suppose, and then the brown will return. While the weather is lovely for the most part, it's the fourth year of prolonged drought. This was my view driving home from the barn two days ago. It's beyond beautiful with the vibrant blues and greens. It makes me want to pull off the side of the road all the time.
The kitchen is finished and we love it!!
And so February is almost here. Wow, 2015 is already zooming past. We have declared this as a year of just enjoying the days after challenges and a lot of busy projects last year. There are always challenges, right? But we would just like to keep them small.
Thanks for coming by. Have a great Thursday!

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
