I’m going to start writing a little bit differently around here.
Q. What exactly is going to change? A: What I write about and how I write it.
Some what I have been writing is abstract, while some is about my daily life and thoughts I’ve developed about things. I don’t feel the need to write abstractly right now, and while I may post in the future that way, that is not my goal. I want to move to a more structured manner of writing dealing with my opinions and things that go on in my daily life. I plan to have more posts like Metals, Hunger Games + Maze Runner (I’ve been able to read more lately), and Friday.
One other thing that may change is the frequency of my posting. In the past several weeks I have been sporadic at best with my posting schedule, but I hope to even it out. I don’t plan to try to post every day, but my aim is to post regularly several times a week.
Thoughts are welcomed and appreciated!
Enjoy winter while it lasts,

Yes, I’ve gone over to the dark side, they have cookies (and a bunch of other things.) It’s easier than Tumblr to find and organise the photos you like because they stay in groups instead of filtering down in posts.
IndianWinter is my Pinterest. I put an image on the side bar, but I cannot figure out how to make it link back to my Pinterest even after I put in the link for it. You may not know it yet, but I am not a technological guru. This little link will have to work for now. -Edit: It works now. A whole two minutes later, haha.
Today is the perfect day for being kitschy- I’ll go off on that later- but, for now, I am going to have some coffee, maybe a bite to eat, and I have canvases that need some sand paper attention and a gesso coat. I did not mention it’s rainy! Yes, folks, it is!

It’s been one of those times where a multitude of things have been happening and I haven’t gotten any of it sorted out enough to write about. I’ve been working like crazy on three art projects and thankfully they are almost finished.
It’s kind of interesting that everything seems to crash and get crazy at once. I wonder if all of those things had happened consecutively, instead of all at once, if they would not have seemed as bad. Right now I wouldn’t say it’s bad, merely a large load all at one time.
It would be easy to stress and lose it over all of it, but let me tell you, it is not worth it. Well, not all of it anyways. Some parts of it receive a large input of emotional energy and I can’t seem to help it. I must put in that I have been blessed with a few wonderful friends. Upon a friend that is always honest and straightforward, yet kind at the same time, there can be placed no value for it is beyond measure.
Lesson: Breathe, it could be worse and is it worth stress or emotional energy. Also, events and emotions should be dealt with and not placed on a back burner. That’s not the thought I’m trying to convey.

The last few days have been absolutely crazy busy! It seems as if I have unending projects, but only three in reality. The one that is the time suck is the copper hollow form ring. It’s taken about 20 hours so far and I’m expecting at least another 4 or more. Most likely more!
I’m almost finished with my silk painting. I estimate about 2-3 more hours on it, assuming I use the one I’m working on now and don’t start a second, which I will do if I have time. (I might even do it anyway.) I am enjoying this project very much and really, silk painting suits me better than acrylics.
I’m drinking earl grey tea, a tea I thought I liked; however, I do not. It tastes lemony, something I did not remember. Not to mention how much sucanat it’s taking. It definitely does not need to steep as long either. When it comes to teas my preferences tend to sway in the direction of spice teas that taste good with milk. Milk does not belong in earl grey, just found that out.
Yesterday when I was out walking I saw the cutest thing! An Asian boy was driving his girl home on an electric scooter. Is that not straight kawaii? Then today when I was walking I heard some wonderful jazz music coming from a coffee shoppe. I stopped to listen for a few minutes because it’s been such a long time since I’ve heard live music and I miss it.

I went up to a conference this afternoon expecting the day to go as it was planned in my head, after all, why shouldn’t it? I was meeting my friend and her mum there. We had to leave unexpectedly and thought what are we going to do today? Well, the day turned from looking like it was going to be terrible to thanking G-d for how amazingly He worked it out. We got to go to another congregation and dance and participate in some of their Bible study. Because of prior plans that did not come to pass, we had lunch all packed and ready to go. So, we went to the park, ate and took a whole bunch of photographs. I could not have asked for a better day.
At first we were mumbling and grumbling about how things were turning out, but we did not let what we had planned get in the way of what we were really supposed to do today. I’m glad we didn’t bum about the whole day and simply went ahead and lived and loved it. When life gives you methane, pack air fresheners.

To all the single ladies who are in a hurry to get married, here is a quick piece of Biblical advice: Ruth patiently waited for her mate Boaz. While you are waiting on YOUR Boaz, dont settle for any of his relatives: Brokeaz, Poaz, Lyinaz, Cheatinaz, Dumbaz, Drunkaz, Cheapaz, Lockedupaz, Goodfornothingaz, Lazyaz or Marriedaz and especially his third cousin Beatinyouaz. Wait on your Boaz and make sure he respects Yoaz.
A lady I know posted this on Facebook this morning. I couldn’t help but share. Don’t you just love it?
