You know what's amazing? God made each snow flake different. No snow flake is alike. I guess that is kind of like us.... we are all unique.
Imagine: God created everything... that means He designed every single snow flake. Every little detail that you can't see without a microscope... It's amazing to think about!
When the world goes white (not all at once, of course) it is so beautiful...so peaceful... so cozy (as long as you are inside).
Now, I am going to go watch a movie with my family in front of the fire place. Yes, there is a fire going.
Enjoying the snow even though I didn't really want it at first,

Frozen tree branch.
This was tonight. My dear sweet puppies (not really puppies anymore) enjoy the snow. They left their cute paw prints everywhere...as you can tell. **cough** captain obvious **cough**
Ah! The lovely snow. I didn't want snow. But now that it's here I am glad we got it! :)
Oh. You are probably wondering why a named this post "Pronto: that means now." Well...it has nothing, whatsoever, to do with this post. Bee always says that, and I think it's funny. That's the only reason.
Much love from the Captain Obvious,
I will post pictures of it later. It's not all that much. I can still see the grass in our yard, but, hey, it's snow, right?! We're supposed to get more throughout the day and night.
I probably won't post the pictures from the barn. I looked at them and saw that they didn't turn out. Sorry...
But I will post snow pics!

Hopefully that will change in the next couple of weeks.

For now, I will do a quick Randomness Wednesday! This week will be different that usual. Instead of telling you only what is on my mind, I will tell you other stuff too! Just 'cause you're special. :)
Tomorrow I am meeting with the owner of a photography studio for an interview. I am excited and slightly nervous.
Today was a slow, lazy day. My mom and I watched "Fried Green Tomatoes" and then "Tuck Everlasting" a little while after! We never, and I mean never, watch TV during the day. It was fun. Both movies are great!
I then looked up the music notes for the theme song for "Tuck Everlasting." I then played it 50,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,987,000,450,023... over. If you can figure out what exact number I just put, let me know. I'd appreciate it. lol.
Right now, Bee and I are in my room seeing as how our parents have a guest and we were told to go upstairs. SO! We all know how fun that is...
I am watching/listening to ihopu student awakening. It is a college in Kansas City...the student awakening is a conference they are having. It's awesome!
I am thinking about:
- A combination of stuff I don't how I could put it into words
- American Idol
- Tomorrow: The interview I told you about...I'm trying not to be nervous.
- God: He's so wonderful. How can I not think about Him?!
- A combination of stuff I don't how I could put it into words: Do I really need to explain that? I don't think so.
- American Idol: It just went off about 42 minutes ago. It's still in the audition stage so we get to see a bunch funny people try to get into Hollywood. It's great fun to watch! Simon makes it even funnier.
That's all I got for ya tonight. I'll let ya know how tomorrow goes!
Thanks for reading.

I just climbed into bed after listening to my dad read a chapter from the book he's reading. He has such a great reading voice. He used to read to us (Bee and me) all the time when we were little. I love it. :)
I am going to go to sleep now.
Now, this, this is very exciting. I took my camera outside when it got dark (obviously) and took this photo. NEVER before have I been able to get a picture of the stars that hasn't blurred!
This one is better because you can see more. Trust me, you can't see this many stars at our house with your naked eye; the lights from the city (even if it isn't that close) dim the look of the stars. After I took this photo and looked at it; I ran inside and flipped out as I showed my family. Then I uploaded it. I sharpened it, enhanced the color, darkened it... after all that, I could see more stars. I'd say that is cause for rejoicing!
Lemme tell ya! It has been windy. If you have never been around trees when it is windy, you should! It sounds like waves crashing in the ocean. It has to be my top favorite sound in the world! (Not that I've heard every sound in the world...but ya know what I mean. :) ) The wind through the trees...not the waves in the ocean...but if they sound the same then I guess it doesn't matter.
I am going to go get ready to go to the barn now. I leave in a half an hour. I am takin' my little "point-and-shoot" camera with me. Hopefully tonight I will post some of the pictures.
Always pointing out the obvious,

Guess that explains all the rain yesterday...
Haha. It's funny. Usually when we are under a tornado warning, we don't really get one...well, we do, it just doesn't get that close. I am very thankful for that. :) But we have had a few close calls in the eight years we've lived here.
Just thought I'd share my morning news with you.

If you can't tell... I am one who likes warm weather and blue, clear skies. I guess it should be "...and a blue clear sky" instead of "...and blue, clear skies."
Yes, I correct myself.
Yes, I do it quite often.
Yes, the rain is getting harder as I write this.
Thanks for reading these short, random posts. It's the random posts that make bloggin' fun and interesting! :)
Being lulled to sleep by rain,

So I am just learning this basics.
I had had guitar lessons for the last time almost four years ago. I had played bass guitar, but the teacher was HORRID! So then I was learning acoustic, then there was a huge drama with us leaving a church...my music teacher was the worship leader...so those lessons stopped. I didn't have a desire to pick it back up after that. What I didn't realize was that the music notes I had learned are the same as piano! It was so great to know that because it has been easier to learn 18 flashcards in under 40 seconds.
I am learning middle C right now. Musical alphabet: A, B, C, D, E, F, G. So simple! So far playing piano has come so easy to me. But I am also only doing one hand (right) right now...
Today, since I have completed all of my assignments, and can do the flashcards in 31.5 seconds (yes, I timed myself), I decided to try to learn the next little song in the book. I did it in ten minutes! It makes me feel good to be able to do that! Haha.
Now, once again, I am going to go pretend it's not cold (and gray...and dreary) outside.
Thursday, January 21, 2010
I woke up this morning and found rain. Gray, dreary skies. And rain. It is such a tease! But that's not all. It wasn't just rainy and gray...it was cold too! COLD! After being warm all week it went cold over night! Why does the weather like to tease me so? It's wrong, I tell you, wrong!
Now excuse me...I am going to go pretend it isn't cold.
Teased but not amused,
Yesterday while Daddy took Beenie to her guitar lessons and Bree and Kay to the library, I made half a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough for Momma, T. Lynn and I to eat. While mixing this batch up I asked T. Lynn if I could bake a few for a friend that is coming over today. She replied with a staunch "No".
"But he would really like cookies T. Lynn," I coxed. "Can't he have just a few?"
"No, it's my cookie dough."
"But it would be nice to let him have some, Baby."
"Ok, but just four!!"
"Four?! Can't he have some more?"
"No, its MY cookie dough!"
Now please bare in mind that we are still mixing cookie dough through all this. I was also texting the guy who's amount of cookies were in question. So T. Lynn says, "Tell him he gets four cookies!"
"I'm not telling him that." I was hoping to convince her that it would be nice to give him more.
"Fine, I'll tell him." She promtly picks up my cell phone and opens the slider.
"Oh no you don't. Put it down."
"But I wanna tell him he gets four cookies."
"But we might give him more."
"Nah - ah, he gets four."
Here I will mention that I was done mixing cookie dough and had started to pull out a pan to bake a few.
"If I let you use my phone can he have more?" She loves to text little words on my slider, it makes her day.
So I let her put in that she said he could have some cookies.
Well, I did finally convince her that he could have more, but it didn't really turn out the way I expected. Why's that? Because once I was done helping her text, she looked me in the eye and said very seriously "Fine. He can have five." I sighed and gave up!

The theme is "short and sweet!"
- Mocha Silk Pie (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/01/mocha-silk-pie/)
Now to explain. Don't go away!
- Dishes: We just finished dinner. There are tons of dishes to do in a short (get it) amount of time!
- Mocha Silk Pie: I just made this (before dinner). It is setting up as we "speak." I can't wait to eat a piece! I'll be sure to let ya know how it was. (I already tasted the filling before I poured it into the crust. Oh. My. Goodness. Delicious! (and sweet! (get it?)) :)
That's a rap on this weeks edition of Randomness Wednesday's "short and sweet!" Now off to start on dishes. We are having someone over soon...they will eat when they get here. That means I can't do all of the dishes right now... dangit! haha!
