Last year's goals and how I did

Just Do It 
Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
  1. I will read my Bible through in an year. Well... no I did not finish
  2. I will work on improving my stamina and flexibility.I can now walk two miles on my heels 
  3. I will work on my attitude towards stressful situations.  Well I cannot see a huge improvement but I guess it is there
  4. I want to be able to identify the different constellations so I can find my way around better. I can identify about four more 
  5. I want to be caught up in school by the end of this year. Did I really think I could do this? We have had and been getting ready for company all year long, I am about eight months behind. 
  6. I will read fifty two educational novels this year. I think I read twenty? 
  7. I will publish my book by the end of the year. Not, I started a second blog but after I finished the book I was working on I went back and reread it and well... I am starting completely over at the beginning. 
  8. I wish to be able to work with others without getting in a fight on how to and not to do it. I am still stubborn but I am indeed more willing to listen to others and use their ideas. 

V. Victory
K. Kind
A. Attitude
T. Thrifty
H. Honest 
I. Information

Oh MY I was helping my sister in the kitchen when my mother yelled in the door.

"QUICK, Come look outside!"

Kenj and I both raced to the window to see large, fat, flakes falling from the sky.


I haven't seen a white Christmas since I was... shoot... Three? 

I will post pictures later.  I have work to do besides  am having too much fun. 

Merry Christmas!

Backstage Blip-its from The Story For Bobby

As most of you know the past three months I have been working on a Christmas program in my church.

We preformed last night and I am going to say it was interesting. Now I am going to post some backstage blip-its because I have always enjoyed them when others do it.

I wrote this play, and directed it. It was actually something else.


B: I think we should have We Three Kings

V: But I don't like We Three Kings, Even the name is wrong.

B: But V. It is a classic,

V: I don't care.

B: *gives puppy face*

V: Fine, but only if I can pick one song that you don't like.

B: Deal


I will have you know I had to reschedule this eight times before it actually happened.

- We want puppets,
-although I hadn't planed on puppets, children, music, narrators, and the whole work.
-I don't know how to even do a CD to do puppets.
-C. Will you please play the angel
-he was the angel.
-I was glad.
-he wasn't
-Innkeepers spoke spanish.
-that was funny

(Working with B) 

B:I don't like The Communion Hymn For Christmas

V: It sets the mood.

B: Yeah, but it isn't traditional.

V: *palm face* Your Objections have been noted and logged.

B: But V!!!!

The Communion Hymn For Christmas

(When I let out who was playing Mary) 

-But She is AUTISTIC!
-will she work
-V. she will never work
-Do you think she could handle it.

V: It is the honor of every girl to get her turn at being Mary. Beth is eleven and I don't care if she can't talk she walks funny or if there is any other problem she is having her turn. THIS year.

Isn't it great being the director.

-Kendra... you need to listen to what is going on around you and not just GO through the play quite so FAST.

A Horse Named Trouble

My sister put this on the kindle and after reading the description decided I would read it.

Book Description

 December 16, 2011
A troubled teen must overcome her abusive past to save the defiant horse that has taught her to love and trust again.
Abandoned by her mother at the young age of seven, Tara Cumming’s been passed from foster home to foster home; not wanted anywhere by anyone. At thirteen she finds herself skeptic and suspicious, with no family, no friends, and forced to participate in horse therapy.

Horse therapy “will teach trust, perseverance, respect and the value of teamwork,” or so says the program’s instructor. Tara is unconvinced. Trust only got her heart broken, perseverance only gets her put down, and no one respects or wants to team up with the misfit foster kid.

At the stable, Tara meets Trouble, an angry horse bent on destroying everything and everyone around him. When Tara realizes he’s just as misunderstood and untrusting as she is, she pushes aside her fear and a special relationship is formed. Trouble trusts Tara, and Tara in turn finds hope and acceptance as well as the will to love and trust again herself.

But Tara’s confidence is shaken as a great challenge looms ahead. Trouble’s manipulative owner is determined to have him destroyed because of his ‘dangerous’ nature. Tara must overcome her own limitations and fight to save the horse that has freed her heart and given her life value and meaning.

I found this to be a rather captivating inspiring book. It is written in first person present tense and is about a girl named Tara Cumming. 

Since I was nine and was helped by a horse named Powder to learn that there is meaning behind those squiggles on a page (they were called WORDS and they told STORIES), I have been fascinated by learning how horses have helped others. 

This story is a excellent example of this very thing. It is well written and very active. If you love horses as much as I do or are curious   on how a horse can help a person this is a must read.

What is up.

(Honestly the ceiling but that is beside the point.)

Sorry I haven't been posting much. Rose has been "helping" me with Christmas presents. *I sigh then give her "the look" she gives me that impish grin*

Also I have been (with Kendra) working on Behind the rainbow. I keep running into the problem of my readers haven't a clue what I'm talking about and Behind the Rainbow is kind of where I was introduced to this culture so I have decide to begin with it.

The world is called Ooladada which I am told means "land of knowledge" beyond that I am not allowed to say.

Kendj and I had this adventure some 5 years ago. And ever since whenever I can I head back to Ooladada.

I will over the next year be posting pictures and be introducing you to the different people in Ooladada. (don't worry there aren't that many.) as well as places. (But not that many.)

today will be my favorite, the four tree.

This tree is not that far from the... portal? I guess I could use that word, to Ooladada. 

Here is where you will find me if you cannot find me anywhere else. It is like the best place to read, write, think, cry.... the list goes on on what I do here. it is my favorite place to be in the whole wide world.

Character Encounter: Rose


"Come on you would think they would have Christmas material at Christmas!"
I pace the isle searching in vain for ANYTHING that had to do with Christmas. 
Just then I got hit in the back of the head with something knocking me off balance making me go crashing to the floor. 
"HEY! What was that for!" I look up to see a girl with bright red hair and green eyes smirking down at me. 
"I thought you were looking for Christmas material." She said in a obnoxious tone 
 I look down and see that is exactly what hit me in the head. I look back up at her and realize I know this girl. "ROSE!" I say a little louder than I should have for a couple of people turn and stare. 
"The one and only." she says with a toss of her head. She nonchalantly leans up against the racks. "Anything else?" 
"What are you doing here?" 
"I am doing what I do best. Finding things." 
"ROSE! I mean here, on earth." 
"Oh, Is that what this is. I have always wanted to visit Earth." 
"Rose," I glance around to make sure nobody is listening. "This is Earth, Humans live on Earth." 
"I know that." 
I groan. "You are a elving, Elvings belong on Rolimbo."
"Some of us have traveled off world."
I sigh "Here," I say thrusting my shopping list into her hand. "Make yourself useful and find these things get them cut to the proper length then meet me at the checkout and lets get out of here."
 Rose, for once doesn't argue. I have landed on one of her favorite things to do. Finding and the both of us are happy... err ... As happy as can be since she does have pointed ears...
