The first official week of summer is completed!
The evening storms have been bending the hickory nut trees and Buddy’s sanity, too. 🙂
The Friday Favored: 17th Edition
1.) Thunderstorms = sad, frazzled dog.
For Buddy’s poor nerves, I say “frazzled” is such a great word.
But we do so appreciate good rains.
2.) Adding words to pictures:
My FWFF Katie sent me this link recently. 6 Simple Photo Tools for Creating Social Media Visuals
It’s a great article about how to add text to pictures and enhance your pictures without having to use a fancy, probably expensive editing program.
I do use Adobe Elements and Lightroom – they serve me well. But I found using an online editing resource was fun and easy! I especially like all the graphics and fonts available. It’s quite time consuming to find, download and install fonts and graphics. The availability and ease of use of the online resources will be helping me out here in the future.
Here’s a sample I created via PicMonkey , which is one of the suggestions from the article:
The watermark is from me via Elements. The remaining text and flowers are from the free selections available at PicMonkey.
FYI: this is not an advertisement. Just one farm wife telling another where she found cool media advice and tools. Then the latter farm wife decided to blog it and yes, I will be putting up a summer slow cooker post soon.
Because I figured since the name of this blog implies edibles – the consuming and/or production thereof – I ought to eventually post food related content at least a little bit. 🙂
3.) A Southern Farm Visit:
I roamed about the farming South with my
husband Farmer this week.
This family has farmed here over 200 years.
This stone is dated “1892”.
This stone is one of a matching pair that hold the gate into a pasture.
Through this gate and across the pasture is the family cemetery.
May she always fly over free herds and cattlemen!…especially when they send a herd trotting across the lawn!
It’s always nice to see other farmers herding animals through their nicely mowed yards. It just makes me feel normal.
Love-loved this detail on this old carriage house looking barn.
What went on in your world this week? C’mon and talk to me!
I’m attending Country Fair Blog Party!
