Six-Sentence Saturday 06/29/2013

This is the Day which the LORD has made. Let us be glad and rejoice therein ~

Some days, I wake up happy. Today is one of those days. :) I feel like screaming around the house, caroling "There was a field in my old town / where we always played hand in hand / the wind was gently touching the grass / we were so young, so fearless."

(Song actually starts at 1:10)

1.) I just finished reading a book by Terry Pratchett, which I actually liked rather a lot.


2.) I have been leery of Terry Pratchett's work for awhile, and aside from a few surprisingly clean, not-exactly-innuendo descriptions, this book was better than I'd been anticipating.


3.) I am wondering whether I should paint my toenails, now that open-toed sandal season is here.


4.) I want to go to the BEACH!!!!!! :)


5.) Can you believe it's already almost the fourth of July? That came careening up on us, didn't it?


That's all for today. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

God bless. :)

The Flowers in our Words

This is what happens when I lay awake at night, trying to fall asleep.

My mind starts to draw weird comparisons.

For instance, I am now working at a florist's shop.

And words, or stories, are like flower arrangements.

First, you have the MAIN CHARACTER!! The main character is the centerpiece of the story, the one all the worlds revolve around. So, the main character is kind of like the centerpiece flower in a bouquet, your expensive flower: your rose, hydrangea, or orchid.

Next, you have the plot. The plot has to be sustained throughout the entire novel, so we need some hearty flowers for this part of the arrangement. Plot equals your chrysanthemums, carnations, calla lilies and sunflowers; all those flowers that do not die easily.

Conflict comes next, little pops of unexpectedness which add colour and shape to your story. Usually, this constitutes "filler": your hypericum berries, your leather leaf and baby's breath, your statice, wax flowers, and myrtle, your poms and yarrow, and your bupleurum. Conflict is what keeps your story exciting and fresh, and adds depth to your arrangement.

Theme is the overall portrayal, the ideas you want to convey, the colour of your novel: how you combine all your flowers to create one whole. The bouquet.

 A-Z Wedding                  Art Fire                    Budget Bride             Charlotte Geary

Setting, of course, equals the pot. :) Or the vase. Whatever dish receptacle thingy you might choose to put your bouquet into.

       Crafts in India            Painted Blossoms        Style Up Your Life             Asis Biz

And there you are! Sometimes you might have to pull out flowers you don't like, or cut out some foliage that just isn't doing it for you, but in the end you're left with a gorgeous arrangement.

Just like a novel.

Yep. This is what happens at night. While I lie sleepless. I hope you enjoyed that. Cheers!

God bless!

Six-Sentence Saturday 06-15-2013

It's a beautiful day, aside from a persistent, slightly coldish wind which one doesn't even notice if one is walking quite quickly and briskly through a gorgeous forest with boulders.

1.) That's right, a couple sisters and I went on a gorgeous mini-hike today! (Mini-hike means there were minimal steep parts to surmount.)

There were rocks, however. :)

2.) We are house-sitting over the weekend, which is why we ended up going on a mini-hike. Our usual hiking place was thirty minutes in the wrong direction. :)

3.) THIS is the kind of view we can see from the dining room window of the place we're house-sitting.

Are you jealous? Pretty gorgeous, innit?

4.) (For some reason, my "a" button isn't depressing properly. I wonder if there is a CRUMB beneath the key.)


5.) As a continuation of the GOOD NEWS here in this house, we discovered WHIPPED CREAM in the refrigerator, which we proceeded to use on our awesome coffee. :)

6.) We are going to watch TANGLED tonight. I'm so excited!


That's all for my day. What happened with yours?

So many rocks. :)

And, because life is always better with a laugh, here's Tim Hawkins, for your pleasure. :)

God bless!

Six-Sentence Saturday 06/08/2013

This one has to be a quickie, 'cause.... guess what??

1.) I iz going SHOOTING today in Carson! (No hoomans or animals will be injured in the firing of this gun ;)

2.) A couple of my sisters are going as well, and I'm pretty sure we're going to use these bad boys.



4.) When we get home from our first day out on the range, we may go to the beach and have a picnic.

5.) I am still looking forward to the 50th Anniversary show of Doctor Who, but I'm not looking forward to the Christmas special because my favouritest Doctor is LEAVING!


6.) I honestly don't know if I shall watch anymore Doctor Who after Eleven leaves. He is my doctor, and none of the others can compare. Cry with me, my friends!

That's all for now! I shall have more to report, I hope, after my Glock experience. Talk to you later! God bless!

Six-Sentence Saturday

Guess what?! I haz been making corsages!!!! Like a stupid, I have not taken photos of my creations -- they are lovely, even if I do say so myself -- but hopefully soon I shall make one in my own house, and post a photo of what I have wrought.

(It might even look like this!! You never know.)
Lucille's Floral
For my six sentences:

1.) Well, I haz been making corsages... and boutonnieres. Cool. (Corsages ARE cool!)

2.) I am SO LOOKING FORWARD to the 50th anniversary show of Doctor Who, since I have now finished all the Clara episodes that are available and am in the "Who mood" now.


3.) My family and I (well, to be precise, three other sisters and my brother) watched ALL the Sherlock shows in three days.


4.) I am also in a Sherlock mood.


5.) I haven't been on Pinterest for ages.

6.) I am loving the entomological portion of my medical transcription courses. I've been having "aha" moments here and there.


So, that's it for me. What's new with you?

Until next time!

God bless. :)
