Reading and Adventures

5:48 p.m. I stayed up until like...after 6 a.m. since my last post? And I woke up at probably 1 or 2. The better part of my day was spent reading, adventuring, and editing photos of my country outdoor adventure. I finally re-installed GIMP on my computer, not knowing why I never put it on there before. But today was nice.

I read a bit about decorating a kids' bedroom, great parenting advice! Then some of a book about folliwing your dreams and pushing the excuses out of your life, and another one about experiences people had with God and angels.

Kinda reminds me of my own. When I was thirteen, I was riding a four-wheeler, off in la la land and talking my characters out loud in monologue. There was this common trick my family did where they rode it with one foot, so I decided to try.

There I was absorbed in my own world, while doing the trick. In the last second, I didn't see that I was
turning the four wheeler towards a barbed wire fence alongside me. I literally 'flew' off and landed gently in the dirt. I had wide gashes in my arms, legs, and my wrist but there was absolutely no pain.

I actually didn't even cry until someone spotted me...kids. That day we drove around a hospital parking lot, my arm in a bloody towel, trying to find a space while a Cancer seminar out front took up a lot of the spots.

In a similar instance, some time later I think, I was in the back woods riding on the back on a motorbike with my Dad. Then, we were suddenly heading straight for a tree and just like the previous instance, I 'flew' off and landed gently in the dirt..unharmed. I think Dad was okay too, but he did hit the tree. :(

I'm totally convinced that somewhere up there, God told angels to lift me and carry me to the ground.

In another GIF set I saw on Tumblr...

6:00 p.m. Couldn't find the set, but there were all these close calls where people terribly missed terrible accident that otherwise could have ended horribly.

Anyway, about my trip, which was just down my street, I took breathtaking photos of clouds and the sky and I'd love to share them here. I also can't wait to put them in my book. Squee! Click to view larger.

6:07 p.m. It should work out better once I get everything better organized. April is making up a grocery list, she seems moody. Just once I'd like her to have an entire week where she's happy but she can't seem to keep the joy fully up for longer than a few days. :( She's also not shopping with us today. 
6:18 p.m. I FINALLY have the photos aligned the way I want. Some may be saved for later, however, so I can have more room to add them as I go along with the entry. It was a lovely day. All these were taken at late 3- early 4:00 p.m. ish God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves!

6:21 p.m. Forgot to mention that what takes so long with adding the photos the right way is that what I see aligned in the editor is not the same way that's it's aligned on the page. Therefore, it took some work. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! Until later...

It's safe to say that artists are pretty strange.
6:23 p.m. I've also been meaning to draw today, to get something marked off my list again, but I'm really not physically up for it for some reason. -__- Humans, right? And I can't work on my dream project because that's on April's computer and she's on it practically all day until morning hours..most times. It seems like every time I finish this entry and go to preview, I think of something else I was meaning to say about today...which will be over soon. P.S. Mr. Toot is still in my head. XD

6:31 p.m. Looked over my blog and would definitely agree that it's to my liking. April says when we leave for the store, to leave my phone so there is a way of contacting her.

 6:36 p.m. More photos added below. :D



Learning to love myself in Christ Jesus
6:53 p.m. I played on Facebook and updated my profile picture, and checked out the news in general. Now I just really need to get off the computer, even if it means meandering and looking for something to munch on.

10:37 p.m. The end of another day. I worked on illustrating for the Dream Doctor but I may have to get creative with some photography and photo-manipulation. I drew in black pen and watercolor pencil, kinda rushed, and it's not what I want.

Went to the store with Rick and Rob and that went smoothly. Spent 135 in food stamps and then picked up our pizza, which was a wrong order, so we waited for the correct order and got the mistaken pizza free.

We came home, unloaded groceries, and ate pizza. I just brushed my teeth and put my art away...so what now?

11:10 p.m. Watched Ylvis music videos and just videos with them in it in general! These guys are adorbs!!!

11:57 p.m. Played with April's smartphone. two points for tacky selfie taking. One more point for being a
selfie that actually looks the most like me. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! Good night!!! God Thanks, Praise, and Glory, on the highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is Able! P.S. The water filter was installed today. From what I'm told, it mildly gets rid of the sulfur smell. Can't wait for a long hot shower.

Oh, and I finally saw how this blog looked in mobile. The picture layouts aren't great but I'll be okay.

EDIT: OMG it's 6 a.m!!! I got my sleep, I guess. After heading to bed, first with the cat, I just slept this whole time. Now it's leftover pizzahut for breakfast. :D God Bless, Jesus Love. P.S. I'm surprised April is still up entirely.
