Mema's: Day Two.

9:24 a.m. Well, I don't think I stayed up that long.  I laid on the couch and watched television until I fell asleep. I got up about a half hour ago and had fried chicken and coke (that southern enough for ya?), then my stomach hurt as it tends to do when I eat in the morning. I'm used to eating in the afternoon. God only knows what lies in the day ahead. I'm already on SecondLife fishing XD I've won almost 100 Lindens (currency) which is cool.

Mema was looking for this pattern I used once for the halter I never finished.

10:31 a.m. I played on the computer, chatted up Mema and Papa. then took the dog out. After he finished, I stuck around and took a few pictures of the beautiful flowers growing up the side of Mema's house. I got giant thorns caught in my skirt as well more than a few times but I am glad I caught this memory.

11:16 a.m. Mema and Papa are napping and I'm web surfing as I SL fish. ^__^ Happy to hear about the birth of Duchess Kate and Prince William's princess. Live long child and God bless, in Jesus name, amen! P.S. Mema said we could get some hair spray at the end of the weekend which is great, because I could use some.

Also, she asked that I don't use my food stamps here when I come in on Monday as she said it's her place to feed me. This of course, is different than what I was planning the other day when I refused to leave them with April.

11:26 a.m. Requested a refund on my books since they were clearly lost in the mail and I won't be receiving them. :(

11:41 a.m. Made 108 Lindens after two days. ^___^ Before Rob's help, I only had like 40something so this was a blessing, praise God. Now in a very 'non-computer' mood and would like to draw something...somewhere.

12:23 p.m. Mema caught me drawing outside. :D I thought about drawing nature but it's just not my interest. Instead, I got a magazine reference photo and it's going well. :D BUT I'm leaving with her for a little shopping so I have to pick up where I left off later. God bless, Jesus loves, died, rose, saved! God is able to do above all we ask or think.

1:55 p.m. We just got back from the dollar store..where literally EVERYTHING was a dollar. :D Mema gave me a 20 and I had a field day. Twenty dollars at a dollar store can feel like bringing five hundred to a mall, as I'd know what that's like but still... SHOPPING SPREE!

  • I got a tubberware giant bowl (to take white cheddar popcorn home) 
  • Hairspray (of course) 
  • Women's shaving cream (was needing it the other day)
  • A floppy straw hat which I got right from walking in. I've been wanting one.
  • An entertainment themed book about actors in 90's sitcoms.
  • Blonde hair color. I almost didn't buy it, fearing it wouldn't work, but Mema said she has used the brand and it does so I took her word for it.

For gifts:

  • A zebra cylinder storage case that I immediately thought of Jen when seeing it.
  • Plastic baby bowls, mini ones for storage, for Drake's upcoming birthday. They NEED it.
  • Pink fake roses and a candle that looks like a chocolate for Mom, mother's day.
  • A pair of small pink glittery fairy wings for Harmony's upcoming birthday this month (or next month, I can't remember) 
and I STILL had over seven bucks left over after all that stuff. Best shopping day I can remember. God also had another gift in store.

I learned that though Dad cannot come today, he will tomorrow AND Jen is planning on bringing Harmony and Aaliyah. I suggested we squeeze in a family photo for the occasion. Mema loved the idea so I hope we get one...because we don't have one. :) It also means that since I get to see my family so little,  I can give a couple gifts early, maybe even moreso if I'm going to Mom's after this.

I'm having an amazing week. Praise and thanks to God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen!

See? He does this. He sees me keep thinking about visiting family when I go like a month (or in this case over a year for some) without seeing them and when He finally brings it, He blows it out of the park. This has happened more than once, in different ways. I've been happier than I can remember since I came.

Okay, happiness came about five minutes after coming. In the first minutes. I sat in the living room alone and not sure what to do with myself but that's long over with, ha ha. P.S. I hope to get back to drawing soon. ^__^  Even drawing has gone relaxing and well today.

3:07 p.m. I made some more pgoress on the drawing, though it's coming out a bit cock-eyed..then again, the photoshop on the reference image is also. I just gave the dog a bath and now need a breather.

3:20 p.m. Computer break time. ^_^ Mema is watching the news and the day is closer to winding down. Jesus rejoices.

5:36 p.m. I started reading my new book and chatted with mema as she made dinner, which was delicious by the way. Pork chops, beans, and homemade mac and cheese.

Also, I am redying my hair from a more 'yellow-whitish' blonde to a more dirty blonde. Toning things down a bit, hopefully. I haven't seen the full results yet as it's in my hair but I'll know soon enough.

6:19 p.m. I continued some of the drawing, which is put away for now and I washed out the hair dye. The good news is the color is perfect and the extreme yellow/white is GONE! Bad news is it damaged my hiar but still..yay color!

9:55 p.m. I spent a long time reading my new book, then Dustin came by and we cahtted. I also got to talk to Uncle Ricky, who is in jail awaiting trial, and he is trying to get sent to Uncle Pats prison (Uncle Pat gets out in December of this year after ten years.)

After that, I furthered my drawing a little but I didn't finish it. :/ It's coming along well..sort of reminds me, in the face, of art typical in 1920's advertising. It's coming along.

Also, I couldn't resist checking my hair in the mirror. It's very VERY shiny, though frayed quite a bit but the yellowish white blonde is now a muted toned and it's not so "BAM!" which is could, looking more natural than extreme. Would definetely like to get more in the future so that when roots come in, I can deal. :P Hope to see my family tomorrow. Instead of fishing, I want to go back to my book.

10:05 p.m. By the way, if you're wondering why there are no pictures yet of my new hair, it's becaue the image would not reflect the astual result. the image, in fact, makes it a VERY bright yellow orange which is a far cry from the actual look of my hair at this time.

10:36 p.m. Ate popcorn and turned on Mean Girls after some channel surfing. I really am planning on getting back to my book though.

12:57 a.m. Watched Mean Girls, Watching 'Baby Mama' which I LOVE!!! And I read more of my book, afterwards having chicken and Mema's homemade macaroni, which was the best I ever had. I'm ending the updates. God bless, Jesus died, rose, lives, saves! Night!

All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
