. . . are my days lately.
We saw peeks of the sun on Easter Sunday but it is still gloomy. I am waiting not-so-patiently to actually take happy, sunny pictures but dreary is what I am stuck with for now. But, you know, these darker, lonely looking photos speak to me today.
We have been cleaning out my inlaws' house and it is not always an easy task. Not only do we find bits and pieces of their early lives together but find items that remind each of us of happier days spent together as a whole family. If you remember from a long time ago on my blog (here), my main man has 2 sisters that have not made our lives easy and are just plain disagreeable. And now we find out that they are just plain greedy too. Enough said. I hope none of you have gone through the drama that we are going through and that your siblings are loving to each other in a time of mourning. Walking away from material goods is okay if memories mean more to you than 'stuff'.
Kim's Texture Tuesday requirement this week was to use her 'serendipity' texture on a photo. I have used it twice in this picture, along with 'paper stained light'. Of course there is levels tweaking, hue saturation tweaking, eraser tweaking and just general tweaking all over. Hello, my name is Connie, and I'm a tweaker!
These photos are all of the same abandoned house at different times of the year. It looks like it was a lovely home at one time and I wonder how it came to be in this condition.
Did the family just walk away one day, leaving the house with only their memories? Was it a happy home? Does the family still gather together somewhere and reminisce about events that happened here? I hope so.
Thanks for letting me vent. We can't always choose our families but we can learn from them.
Now, go have yourself a happy day!
