I have shown you pictures of my most wonderful Peshy dog. Well, here she is 'in person', so to speak. lol. ;) She is cute as a tack and she's smart as a button. . .or something like that. ;) Maybe it's the OTHER way around. lol. You decide.


Has anyone here heard of Enya - talented singer??? Well, she rocks and I wanted to share a little bit of her with, here she is. This song is called Only Time. Enya has a wonderful, wistful sound to all of her music and I just love it! Enjoy!!

This song is Wild Child...Enya rocks!

Another Day in Recycled World

Hey, World, just wanted to put up a post today. . .things are NOT, I repeat, NOT going slow for me here in the little town of Plummer.

I have been doing a lot of different things ...but to my great sadness I cannot share them with you as my camera has been hijacked by my two brothers. They took off for a week and took it WITH them. Uggh. You'd think they'd tell a woman before doing something like that...right? Well, they didn't so now I'm stuck here typing away instead of showing you what I have been up to - which is what I would LIKE to do!

I have a new picture that I am working on. It's a dragon. My first dragon. I named him Edgar...he's green at the moment, but I am still working on digitally painting him. . .so he might morph into a different color once I get all of the scales finished. My brother, Nat-han, wanted me to make him feathered with furry wings...a little backwards, I thought. lol. Brothers! Anyway, I think that he was picturing the dragon from Eragon when he said that. Siphera started out pretty cute. (*I KNOW I spelled her name wrong, sorry)

So, other than the drawing I have also been learning Latin...again. I did not get very far the first time because I got distracted with Spanish and Tengwar...but now I am back on track and learning my way through the beatiful language. It really is a nice language and certainly much easier than some of the others I have tried. German and Russian, for instance, are very difficult languages for me to master! It would help if I actually had some kind of verbal reference to work from instead of just books. Reading different languages usually is not a problem, but speaking them can be if you don't have any way to access - 'sides the web, of course - the sounds.

I have joined a new group. Started this week. It's called Toastmasters and despite the name it has nothing whatsoever to do with cooking. It is a group that helps you with public speaking. Yep, I will soon be able to speak in public. lol. ;) JK. So, I went to one meeting so far that our town just started. It was GREAT! I had a lot of fun and the lady starting it has been doing it for a very long time and I was able to learn a lot just by watching her presentations. I love to learn!

I have also been working on some stories....I had to stop writing yesterday because of my brother's leaving. HE TOOK THE LAPTOP ALL OF MY WRITING WAS ON! Eeeeeeek. Or, more accurately, Neek!

Since then I have just been mainly reading and working on Latin, as I mentioned. I worked at the library...speaking of the library, some stupid teenager put firecrackers in the book drop and BLEW IT UP! Neek. It was new too. Some people just do not respect the library. . .or other people's personal property...or anything. I hate firecrackers. They are loud and noisy and they give me a migraine and - OOOOOH! That reminds me...Happy Fourth of July everyone!!!!

Our family doesn't celebrate it. Really we don't celebrate much of anything, but that is neither here nor there as my dear Jackson would say. Anyway, things are okay here.

The weather has been pretty good.

Oh, Eeek! I'm so bored I'm starting to talk about the is that?? Okay, I'll think of something more interesting to write about.

One of our dogs had puppies this last week. They're ugly and they make a lot of noise. I don't like really, really small puppies. They're okay once they've reached several months, but until then I don't like them.

I really, really like Will and Grace. That show can make me laugh even when I am feeling the most down. I was feeling kinda sad yesterday so I watched a few episodes and it was wonderful! I love that show...*Happy smile*.....*Contented sigh*.

I cannot believe that Stargate SG-1 is over. I don't think that I'll ever watch the last episode EVER again. I watched it once and it was awful! How could they end the most wonderful show in the world like that??? They killed them ALL and they even killed the Asgaard...then they made it so they went back in time and stopped the whole thing from happening in the first place. Which means that I had to watch my wonderful characters (Daniel!!!) die for over an hour just to have it never happen. And Daniel and Vala got "together" in that episode. Uggh! How wrong is that!!! It should be Jack or Sha're or ....nothing. I suppose there is hope for a Daniel/Sam if worst came to worst. They have chemistry, but it is more for a brother sister than a boyfriend girlfriend kind of relationship. Sorry about the Jack/Daniel for you nonslashers out there. I know that some people find it offensive. You should read Orrymain's stories. They are fantastic without being smarmy and disgusting. She makes them a family of love and not of...well...anything disgusting. Whatever you might think that is. Anyway, enough of my slash rant. ;) I'll save you from having to put up with more.

I am trying to find a job. I'm looking, searching, trying to get one. I have GOT TO MOVE OUT OF THIS PLACE and into a place of my OWN! Neek. I've been here so long and wanted to get out for so long, but I have real issues. Ones that most people don't want to help me with. My fear of driving - I am terrified of driving, for those of you not in the know - makes it hard for me to get a job any further away than Plummer. I just freak out when I have to drive farther and it is really hard on me emotionally. Unfortunately, most people don't understand that it really is hard and they think that I'm blowing it out of proportion or whatever! Makes me mad. I do have a very, very special bestest friend who totally understands. It's only because of her that I can drive the distances that I can. You should check out her blog. Mel's blog is on the left there somewhere. ;) She's the best!!!

Well, I have babbled and prattled and typed on for long enough and I have some stuff to go clean in my house. Just wanted to talk with someone for a while, so you guys are my sounding board. lol.

BTW, I found a great comic that you should check out if you are into comics at all. (* Earth Song) Type it into a search engine and it'll come up. It's great! Fantasy and great!!! Have a great day and, once again, Happy Fourth of July!!!

I have come to a decision about my religion/faith/belief system.....I have spent most of my life surrounded by a very conservative Christian family and grew up thinking/believing that following some kind of Law or Rule Book was the answer.

Well, people, I've got the REAL answer. It isn't about the good things that you do or the bad things that you do. It is about motive, your relationship with God and your ability to care and love others. That is so totally IT! Life is so difficult already...I mean, lets face it, this earth sucks. People and nature seem to be against us at every turn. We don't need to make it HARDER on ourselves by adding all these "Shall Not's", etc.

Okay, I've had my rant for the week. ;) That is it I guess...

Card Stamper

For the first time in my LIFE I was able to stamp the books before they left the library. The little CLINK noise that it made was music to my ears. lol. I actually *squee-ed*...*blushes*...TWICE.

Anyway, I am just stoked about this and so I wanted to share it with the rest of you too!! I cannot wait until work again! I love libraries...and books...and reading...and writing....and translating...and learning new languages...and everything else that is involved with the art of books. Yep! =) . lol.

Today: Just Stuff

Today I felt like updating you on what I have been up to - namely, what has been keeping me so preoccupied that I have been unable to blog!!! I have been writing. Not just your normal story writing, I am talking hard-core WRITING.

Not only have I completely finished a number of stories, but I am very close to finishing several others. These past two weeks I have gotten so much writing done it isn't even funny, but my best writing hours are in the middle of the night. :p So, I've been getting writing done, but that is ALL I have been getting done. At least, that is what it feels like.

On my to do list for this week I have to keep on writing, upload more vids to my youtube account and help my little brother, Matt-hew, with a video mini series that he wants to film. ;) I'm going to be his sidekick. lol. Go figure!

Anyway, I should be getting a lot done this summer, but blog posting will probably NOT be one of them. So, if you do not hear from me for a while at least you now know where I have gotten myself off to. ;)

Enjoy your summer!!!
