Quiet times

Not much going on around here so little to write about. We did get snow,  maybe an inch. It was lovely this morning all unmarked and serene.

I've been, sketching, knitting on a pair of socks, and reading. Putting in time on the stationary bike, cooking, eating and feeling generally uninspired. Had a HUGE Anxiety Attack which left me shaky all day Saturday. Was very grateful that daughter #2 had planned a visit.  Her company was a blessing. We spent our time together talking and reading.

I did have a wonderful visit with my granddaughter, Anah, after school on Friday. We talked about life and watched an episode of "This Is Us" which made us both cry. It's been far too long since we've been together in this way and I so appreciate these ever more rare occasions. Just because I understand how different and busy her life is now doesn't mean I don't miss her. Just as I miss her mom who is now studying to be a Nurse Practitioner which along with working full time and being a great mom takes up all her time. Yesterday was the first Sunday in a long time thst we didn't eat together.

Please let me know if what I did worked.

Much better.
Something even in between the two would work also.

I love the cheek kiss photo. Tender.

Good. Do you know what size in pixels is best?

I like the smooch pic too.

I limit the size to 800 PX if the picture is placed horizontal and 600 if its verticle. Some people on LJ are unable to create their friends' page to size all entries to meet their screen, but those who don't have a paid account, I believe, large pictures will spill over the edges creating scrollbars on the bottom and the side which is a real hassle managing your friends' page.
Does this make sense?

Yes makes sense, thanks. These are 400px on the horizontal and 350 on the vertical so a bit small. Ah, I've learned something today, I can go back to goofing off lol

My "default" photo size is 730 pixels wide and the 548 pixels high that automatically goes with in (I use IrfanView for editing). This is the best width for my blog that I found by trial and error, but I'm not sure if it works for everybody's friends page.

Thanks for the info. I use PhotoPhiltre. I tend to use my tablet for posts and am thinking I should use the laptop so I can resize pics.
