My Life is a Cartoon

Maybe my life is not a cartoon, but I do like to draw little cartoons about some of the things going on in my life.

Redeeming the time

I have still been spending too much time looking at Facebook and not enough time updating my blog.

I have got to hear some good teaching lately. One thing that really stands out if the "Redeeming the time" verse. That one really hit home with me.

What I have been doing while not posting. Still looking at recipes for thanksgiving and also I tried something different with my hair. Sort of a reverse frosting. It didn't do what I wanted, but it didn't turn out too bad. It's something I've been thinking about for a long time and doing a lot of thinking about how I could make it work.

My loft bed

This is what my loft bed looks like. I hung some not quite finished paintings above the bed and a few of my paintings under it.

When I sit at my desk under the bed it feels like someone is watching me. I guess that means that some of my paintings are not too bad ;-)

Things that make you wonder

I went out to put something in the back of my truck and there on the ground was a page out of the bible. I guess it had been blowing in the wind and happened to end up at the same place and time as me. It has some parts highlighted, starting with the verse where it says it's not good for man to be alone. Very strange, but I know that one of the things I struggle with is being sort of a loner.

So far so good

I'm enjoying my loft bed. I thought that The Cat would not be able to wake me up in the mornings and I would have to get another alarm clock, but he has found a way.

I had my door closed, but he is able to push it open and then stand under the bed and meow loudly.

It works for me and I really do need to get up and get going.

Quote: Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail. - Og Mandino

I'm okay

Just busy lately and spending too much time on facebook and not on my blog here. I will try to get myself back to this, but this is going to be a busy month for me.

I had a birthday and now I'm REALLY old ;-)

I gave my testimony at Church.

I finially got my loft bed and set it up all by myself.

Work is really busy this month and I'm trying to get my menu and everything together for thanksgiving.

gotta run.

Mow by the light of the moon

I had to stop by and borrow a lawn mower (well actually it's mine, but I still had to borrow it) on the way home because I have broken both of my electric mowers.

Then I could not pull hard enought on the pull starter to start it. I had to call a friend to drive over and pull on it and crank it.

Well by then it was dark and it's a good thing that the moon is almost full because I think I got most of it. I can't be sure until the sun comes up tomorrow ;-)

Quote: I like to think that the moon is there even if I am not looking at it - Albert Einstein

Resetting your cat

For years I have used my cat as an alarm and that works great most of the time, but there is not way to reset my alarm. So last night about 9 he decided it was time for me to be in bed.

As I sat at my computer he kept putting his teeth on my shins (this means go to bed) so I went to bed early. He doesn't bit down, he just threatens to.

It was a good thing because now he has me up an hour early. I'm actually going to try to see if I can adjust to getting up early. I think he has a good idea.

Quote: I think we consider too much the good luck of the early bird and not enough the bad luck of the early worm. - Franklin D. Roosevelt
