Be Creative: Projects from Pinterest

Be Creative: Projects from Pinterest

For the better part of today, I was not feeling creative. After a nap and a cup of tea, I thought I would give creativity another chance.
I found two projects on Pinterest that I thought I could do. They weren’t difficult to do. At the moment, I’m waiting on paint to dry so I can finish.
I will be posting the finished results tomorrow. My kid also did a painting that I think is sweet. 🙂 She gave her blonde sister some black hair because she couldn’t find yellow. Time for new paint. Mommy keeps mixing it all up. Time for a new palette also.

Pessimist/Optimist/Realist: NaBloPoMo

Pessimist/Optimist/Realist: NaBloPoMo

At one point in life, I was a pessimist. Everything was bad and I didn’t think it would get better. However, I have had a change in perspective. It was a necessary change. Who wants to be grumpy and negative all of the time? Where is the fun and joy? It’s not in negativity or pessimism.
I do have a grasp on reality. So I understand that bad things happen. I broke my ankle and had my SUV stolen in the same week. It was not a great week but I didn’t feel unhappy. I had faith that things would work out. A few days later, my SUV was found. After this minor set-back, I was back on my feet. Did you see what I did there. 😉 I have been able to find humor in bad situations. Humor has saved me from having to wear grumpy pants. They are pretty cute sweatpants.


Back by Popular Demand: Heroes

Back by Popular Demand: Heroes

This morning, the morning radio show mentioned that “Heroes” is making a comeback. The show will air as a thirteen episode mini-series. I’ll take it! It might be the best news that I’ll hear today. What are the chances of getting better news?
So far, I don’t think Hayden Pantierre will be returning as the cheerleader. She’s busy with her other t.v. show, “Nashville.” My suggestion for replacing her would be AnnaSophia Robb. I think she has depth and physicality. You don’t want to see a hero who is out of breath after leaping over tall buildings. She was in the movie, “Soul Surfer,” which was a really physical role.


So I’ll be watching “Heroes” again on Netflix. I’m sure that I’ve forgotten so many things.

On a side note, I was impressed with the radio show for mentioning something interesting. They talk a lot about their personal lives. Snoozefest.

Seconds: Stephenson’s Restaurant

Seconds: Stephenson's Restaurant

Describe the most satisfying meal you’ve ever eaten, in glorious

In 2001, my mom and I went on a road trip. From the beginning, we had terrible meals and inadequate service. We were starving from Ohio to Missouri. Twenty-four hours of undercooked, overcooked, greasy, dry globs of food. I was seriously praying for a decent meal. We had reached a breaking point with bad food – meaning we were going to break something or have a nervous breakdown. Our sugar levels were all over the place from not eating much besides junk food. It was past the time for good food.
Stephenson’s was like Cracker Barrel, except better. There are no fake potatoes or frozen briscuit in this place. I felt like we had gone to foodie heaven. Everything was the best thing I ever had – the biscuits, the vegetables, the chicken, dessert.
The restaurant itself was beautiful. I don’t remember every seeing any restaurant that was so lovely.

Unfortunately, the restaurant closed down after new management took over. We still have our memories of one good meal out ten.

“What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?” — An Abundance of Katherines–John Green


Ice sculptures are pretty remarkable. If I even had half the talent of the person that made this, I would be happy. If I could do something this wonderful, I think my life will be complete.
