Quality Time

My son, Sport, is winding down his two week trip to Texas. He actually drove to my office today and took me to lunch which was a wonderful treat. We have gotten to spend a lot of great time together but, as he tells me, I am geographically inconvenient. I am 45 minutes away from everyone else in the family so I sometimes feel I am getting the short end of the stick. Not this time.

Tomorrow Sport is best man in a wedding and he will then head back to Denver. Tenderheart and I will attend the wedding and then head in the opposite direction to take the baby to see relatives visiting from Georgia. I have a feeling I will be exhausted by Sunday night.

Here are the shots from visiting the pumpkin patch. What fun! Miss L picked an "apple" and carried it with her the rest of the time.


















Hands full. Now what??


That sun sure is bright!










Now I need some advice from those of you who are more savvy with adding pictures on Blogger. What application do you use to be able to manipulate your images? I have some great shots on the photo disc but they are in landscape layout and cannot figure out how to rotate them to portrait to add them to the post. In other words, I turned the camera sideways to take the shot and the picture is laying sideways in the thumbnail.
I spend so much time trying to learn what to do that I end up getting very little done but I refuse to give up. Grrrrrrr...
Off to bed. Big day tomorrow.

Hope all goes well at the wedding. Those pictures are adorable.

As for photos, I always get them as I want them before I come onto Blogger. I use Roxio Photosuite but there are many good photo programmes available. I do all my rotations and lightning or darkening photos on there.

I would not have a clue how to rotate them here on blogger.

Love the pumpkin patch pictures. She is a doll.
As far as the rotation goes, I don't know what the program is, but when I load my photos on my computer when you look at them there is an option button to rotate the picture. So you might go back to where ever you have them loaded on the file and see if there if a button somewhere to change it there.
Then after they are all turned you would be able to add them just like you did the ones above.
I think Google has a thing called Picasa I think you can move stuff on it.
Good luck.
Take care, Chrissie

Love the pumpkin patch photos!

I use Picasa for my photos and they have a feature so you can rotate your photos.

You did a nice job with the pictures. I haven't played with inserting pictures yet. I can barely write these days, lol!
