I mentioned on my other blog http://adventuresofacleverpen.blogspot.com/ that I'm going to try to expand my vocabulary. Guess what I found to help me?! :D

My Blog

I started and stopped my blog already. Haha! I'm going to post on it today. I got a bit busy working on my garden etc. Anyway, I thought I'd post the name of it so that perhaps, if you'd like, you can visit me there sometime.

The Boys

Sooooooo. Owen and I played outside today on the swings. Owen talks more on the swings than anywhere else. If I ever need him to talk, that's where I should take him. Dillon joined us soon after. He had me take pictures of him climbing down a rope ladder. He would move to a position and tell me to take the picture, move to the next position, and tell me to take a picture. Funny kid! I'd post, but the pictures are still on my phone. Maybe next time.

I'm going to create my own blog for my writing stuff. I'm not sure what to call it, but it's in the works! Until next time, stay cool. :D

30 minute Poster

I did a doodle of squash in Relief Society Meeting (Class at church for just the ladies, for those of you who aren't Mormon). It came in handy for this Poster I threw together. It supposed to be just a reminder, and not particularly informative. Its not the best work of my career, but I'm happy enough with it at 1:30 am to call it good. Yay for deadlines!

Ps to my illustrator friends. I got a job at an art gallery and I'm still drawing. I'll post my traditional stuff.......eventually. I really need a scanner.....

A Bit of Robert Burns Poetry

To A Mouse, On Turning Her Up In Her Nest With The Plough, November, 1785

Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie,
O, what a panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi' bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee,
Wi' murd'ring pattle!

I'm truly sorry man's dominion,
Has broken nature's social union,
An' justifies that ill opinion,
Which makes thee startle
At me, thy poor, earth-born companion,
An' fellow-mortal!

I doubt na, whiles, but thou may thieve;
What then? poor beastie, thou maun live!
A daimen icker in a thrave
'S a sma' request;
I'll get a blessin wi' the lave,
An' never miss't!

Thy wee bit housie, too, in ruin!
It's silly wa's the win's are strewin!
An' naething, now, to big a new ane,
O' foggage green!
An' bleak December's winds ensuin,
Baith snell an' keen!

Thou saw the fields laid bare an' waste,
An' weary winter comin fast,
An' cozie here, beneath the blast,
Thou thought to dwell—
Till crash! the cruel coulter past
Out thro' thy cell.

That wee bit heap o' leaves an' stibble,
Has cost thee mony a weary nibble!
Now thou's turn'd out, for a' thy trouble,
But house or hald,
To thole the winter's sleety dribble,
An' cranreuch cauld!

But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o' mice an 'men
Gang aft agley,
An'lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!

Still thou art blest, compar'd wi' me
The present only toucheth thee:
But, Och! I backward cast my e'e.
On prospects drear!
An' forward, tho' I canna see,
I guess an' fear!

And Finally...A Rainbow in Ireland!

Old But Cool Buildings

Here's a view of a cool ceiling...forgot where now - will have to look at my notes. :)

And here's night shot of St. Paul's Cathedral in London. Cool huh?


Just some pretty flowers etc. we found in different places.
