While we recently experienced a flooding downpour on Friday and part of Saturday morning, when I couldn't be outdoors, I took to the desktop and played with some of my sketches and photos with the application found online...Lunapic. Here are the results. As always I add the original in a smaller inset:
The Gannet [bird] sketch was enhanced with the art filter "Homer" and on the Poinsettia sketch I used Vignette/Christmas
Behind the tree a Great Blue Heron appeared - I used the animation "water" but did not save it as a gif file. Instead, for the water effect, I turned it into a reflection only and a jpg file. The finch I used the art effect filter "Sadness".
This photo of a loading chute on the historic ranch camp land on Padre Island, I used the effect "Scribble" and for my caricature of our now president, ready? I used the art filter "Fairy".

I learned a nifty trick with Firefox Browser. Maybe you know this already, but I didn't...so, I thought I'd share... Using tabs, have you ever deleted "x" a tab in error and "lost" it, only to have to go to your history and re-find it to install it again? Well here's the trick. Again, this is Firefox....if you want the tab to reopen, just click and hold SHIFT CTRL T - the tab reappears instantly. IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM
Also, a couple of windows tips:
To close a tab/window and return to previous page CTRL W
As you browse, enlarge text CTRL + = plus key
As you browse, make text smaller CTRL - =minus key
Toggle Full Screen F11

Our kitchen is almost done with getting rid of 'junk' ...the last room in the house! Then, we're DONE. The job I did this weekend was to do the oven and stovetop. Of course the oven itself is 'self cleaning'...so all I did was set the time and locked the oven door. The stovetop is a whole 'nother thing. It was all torn apart, and soaked what could be soaked in a grease cutter liquid - it now sparkles!!

Note to self: Get oil changed in car. I checked the oil life Sunday on the auto and it's down to 18%!! Too low for me to be comfortable with. I don't want any dash warning lights coming on if I can help it.
