To Do List: One Item Down

Most of the things on the to do list I have in my header image are ongoing or long term items. The Maggie and John story will take quite a while to finish. And let’s be honest, as long as there are images to ogle, I’ll keep on doing it. But a few of the items are things that I can actually accomplish in a timely manner, and one of them I completed yesterday while giving my twinging back a rest.

I enjoyed The Golden Hour. It wasn’t necessarily stellar television and I can’t imagine that I’ll watch it again, or at least not frequently. But the stories lines were engaging and I was able to become invested in some of the characters. Other characters I just wanted to slap upside the head–Dr. Naz anyone? Dr. Alec Track on the other hand won me over in the first episode. And no, it wasn’t just because Richard Armitage played the good doctor! Seriously, how could you not love the guy after this?

Golden Hour


If you haven’t yet watched the show, I would recommend it. I could have seen myself watching this even without RA. But then, I’ve always enjoyed medical dramas.

Stipple Richard

I’m back from visiting my brother’s family. My nephew is just as adorable as I expected, although the little guy decided the best way to welcome Aunt Jas was by peeing on me almost immediately. I chose to view this as his way of marking me as his favorite aunt! 😉 It was so much fun to see how much his sisters adore him, showering him with kisses and hugs. It melted my heart.

Now that I’m home, I’ve been catching up on reading my favorite blogs and thinking about what I want to do next. There are several posts I have in mind for here on the blog. I just have to make a list and get cracking.

  1. I finally watched Between the Sheets, which probably deserves a reaction post.
  2. There are several Photoshop tutorials I’m looking forward to trying out and sharing the results.
  3. If I can manage to get past my writer’s block, chapter 6 of John and Maggie’s story needs to be completed.
  4. Most importantly in the short term, there is a little something I’m working on for a special day that’s coming up later this month!

In the meantime I thought I’d share another of my Photoshop experiments. I wanted to try making a stippled drawing in Photoshop. At first, the plan was to do it all manually with a brush, but I came across a tutorial that looked interesting, so I gave it a try. You all know how much I love tutorials! 🙂

Here is the original image I started out with:


And here is the result of my Photoshop experiment:


It isn’t quite what I was going for, but still a fun effect.

I’m off either this afternoon or tomorrow to donate food for SpReAd the Love. Have you donated your pint of blood or pound of food yet? There are still 13 days left to donate!
