You know one of the things I really like about having older kids? They occasionally take initiative.
If they’re in the mood.
And it suits their needs.
In keeping with the whole “Spring has Sprung” thing, Kayla and a friend decided that they wanted to grill hot dogs for supper. You know what I said? “Go for it. Just clean up your mess, please.” First, they made a menu:
Then preparations began:
I was fairly impressed. All four food groups were represented. (Yes, we count hot dogs as meat in this house.) They set the table themselves. They cleared the table themselves. All that was left for me was to pick lettuce off of the floor.
I should be careful. She might be trying to take over my job.
As a side note, a couple of people asked about my edit on the basketball picture from yesterday. I’ll be completely honest here, I worked on that picture in PSE for a long time. I tried it bright, urban, saturated, desaturated, B&W, sepia….I had decided to scrap it and I went back into LR to look at some others. As I was moving the cursor around I landed on a preset called “Matt’s 300 Look Preset” which can be found at http://www.lightroomkillertips.com/2008/monday-presets-the-300-look/ . It pulled it back into PSE after that and did a few more adjustments, but the base of the edit was that preset. It rocks!!
