I've been having fun playing with an app on my iPod called "Slow Shutter" - it's kinda like painting with light. It's a little hard to get at first, this pic above is actually a tiny blue light that my wii remotes give off. With that tiny light I was able to create this image (that sorta reminds me of a flower).
This picture may look all artsy but I am sick of all this rain! This can't be normal not to have adequate amount of sunlight per day. I hope someday to move to a sunnier (is that a word?) climate. Just a few hours ago we had a tornado warning that last 10 minutes. How crazy is that? That's how much the weather changes in Ohio.
I know I keep talking about the weather on this blog which is so retarded in a way, but if you lived in Ohio (especially the Toledo area and vicinity) you would understand why. One minute I'm ready to leave to go run errands and the next minute I'm stopped by sirens from tornadoes. And then ten minutes later the sun is shining. smh..

I was feeling kinda anxious and nervous because Dan is flying today. As I left Meijer Grocery store this was the view from my car. God placed it on my heart to quit worrying that He knows what I need. I immediately felt better! God is good! And about five minutes later Dan called :-)

Me and the kids had fun coloring Easter eggs today. I found a kit at Walmart that seemed to have a lot of bright primary colors which I liked. One of eggs was a little off regarding color so I dipped it a few times to make stripes. I like how it turned out to be the odd ball of the brights below.
Jessica made lemon bread for our dinner tonight. Well it never quite made it to dinner because it smelled so good that we dug in after they volunteered at Church. I stayed home because I haven't been feeling well the past few days. I am so thankful to see summer coming, I'm tired of being sick!
Happy Easter & remember HE has Risen! :o)

Ok, enough of that rant. I really don't know much about that topic. I am just confused of the chem trails and HAARP theories and I guess it really scares me. But, my God is bigger! ..Although He did give us free will -I hope we don't end up destroying ourselves with that will!!!
On a totally different topic, I have another Mandala sketch to share:
I like the flow of this one, exceptthe little snake shaped twirls bother me. I wish I could change them. Oh well, too late now i guess!
I need to get off here and get my rear in gear. I need to go to the dentist to get forms filled out for Isaiah's kindergarten registration. I can't believe I am registering my lil guy for kindergarten today. Wow, he's growing too fast. :o)

This is our new dog. I have never owned a dog as an adult so I really am new at this dog ownership thing. Thank God my husband knows the ropes though, so it's been fairly easy. Except when it rains. This little dog does not like the rain! She does not want to go outside when it rains. She's very fearful of alot of things (loud noises, quick movements, etc etc ) She reminds me of myself. lol
She's so good with the kids and they are so in love with her. Her name was Princess when we got her from Dan's brother, but we renamed her Jackie. Dan said he wasn't gonna yell "PRINCESS" out the door to call her in. LOL
Over the weekend I made this fruit tart. I used the crust recipe from this website. My family gobbled this up! The crust is so delicious and rich, I think the fruit paired perfectly and I'm glad I decided to make it this way.

I scored on some really cute vinyl wall stickers for my kitchen. I got them at 75% off at Meijer :). Let's hope they stay stuck on my walls.
I've been trying to perfect making my own seitan (or wheat meat). I finally did it! This seitan was delicious and it's already gone! I love seitan for it's versatility.
