Grandsitting Day 3

Tuesday, Aug. 1st

Jos was up first! She watched me play Momma on Angry Birds. Momma often beats me! Usually Momma, or Cindy, both younger and faster than I, win. Mostly I'm second or third, depending upon which young lady is off on vacation! I have one more day in the tournament.

After breakfast, which I insisted, Josephine, Isabelle and I finished editing video #3, they went back to creating video #4. (Grampa has gone to dispatch Meals on Wheels.) Editing is tricky work, but fun on iMovie. We have to upload the video from the camera, import it to iMovie, then split the movie into manageable sections for uploads. About 2 minutes each. Then we export it into iTunes, then upload it again to PHOTOS, where Momma & Papa can view them from home.

This video, #3, The Gold Coins, we had to do voiceovers, since the camera isn't as good as picking up sound as the videocamera. We edited the entire movie, duplicated it, then sectioned it for time.

Lunch on the back deck!

Grampa bought us a new pool, the old one has a leak. It's lasted about 3 or 4 years. It was a challenge to put it together. We half-filled it, but it was cold well water! Hot work in the sun.

Dinner at CC's on the Rideau! Jos fetched Isabelle a spoon, so she could eat her ice. Grampa donated his ice to Izzy.

After that, a walk on the docks.

Josie: Gramma, you have a package!
Gramma: Oh, good. It's your Christmas present!
Izzy: What is it?
Gramma: Not telling! IT's for Christmas!

Disaster: playing with Annabelle, Isabelle had a scratch on her leg. It took two bandaids.

Oh Jenn what fantastic photographs. The weather looks great and the pool looks inviting. So nice to see you all in the photo's you've shared.
Thought the video was great fun too.

All the best Jan

sounds like you're an expert on video editing. I'd get lost on the first upload.
