Embrace Change

image
I received two of these things as Christmas gifts. My granddaughter Heidi gave me the copper fruit basket. Heidi and I have shopped together since she was 3 or 4 years old so she does know my taste.
Julie and Greg’s family gave me the black olive candle.
I gradually built this tablescape with my new gifts, a runner I had painted a year or two ago and a plaque which I love.
We live a fuller life if we can learn to embrace change.

I will have to admit I am having a hard time embracing the change in the weather.
Saturday we woke up to snow and Sunday we received more.
The temperatures will be bitter cold for the rest of the week.
But I can embrace the beauty looking out from inside the house!

KAY - those pictures are wonderful. I think you figured it out!

Kay - you really, really had me puzzled there, for awhile, with the "funky" pictures as it should have been virtually impossible for the iPhone to do what was happening.

Usually the worse an iPhone can do is a blurry image (if you didn't get focused or move the camera quickly), or a too dark picture if there is not enough light, but to get pixelated and severe data compression artifacts like you were experiencing is pretty darn impossible.

Good for you for figuring it out.

You were absolutely correct. :-)
