Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. - Helen Keller

Water Fun...

My Internet has been off and on the last few days, the best I can figure is there is something wrong with my modem. I am supposed to be connected all the time, but it's been luck of the draw for about five days. Tomorrow I'm taking the modem to the Cable company for a replacement. That should fix it, I hope.

We had a blast yesterday kayaking, the river was splendid, even if it was too crowded for my taste. The weather was beautiful and we visited our favorite little waterfall, a wonderful little secluded spot where the water splashes down from about 70 feet above and a cool breeze blows in from the river, the brush is just thick enough to make it a very (yes, you lovely pervs, that's what I mean :) private place.

All in all a spectacular day to be out in the sun and water! I wish we had a camera, when we get one I promise to take a picture of our water fall and post it. Hope you are all having a wonderful summer so far...

Hello Again...

Wow, it's been a whole minute since I last blogged.
I'm blogging right now, quite simply, because I'm seething and need to occupy my mind for a while. Some people boggle me with their selfish and silly ways. I understand the kids need to be kind to animals and I know that my little one sometimes gets over excited with them, but he is a child and more importantly a human being. Now, let me back up and explain myself and where I'm going with this.
I have a neighbor, whom will remain nameless, and she came over to visit. She has 4 cats and worships these animals, that's great for her, I'm happy for her. Well, she was over here and my son was trying to pet our kitten and picked it up by the scruff of the neck (like a mother cat would do) and this woman went ballistic! In MY house, in front of my child! She started yelling that I should teach my children to be "nice" to animals, she then turned to yell at my child. That was it! I told her in no uncertain terms to get out of my house and stay out.
I'm not proud of the way I handled some of it, but all he did was pick up the kitten, the way I taught him to. She believes that is an inhumane way to hold the kitten. I tried to explain to her that mother cats often carry their kittens this way and that it is perfectly natural. That's when she started her tirade. Thankfully she will be moving to Florida soon. Good luck to her! I swear to all I know, I'm tired of people! It seems that the more people I meet...The less I like people. I think I'm happy to just keep my little circle of blog buddies and be done with most of the rest. If only!
On a lighter note...
I'm still excited about school and right now, I'm looking for a job to keep me busy until then. A little extra money never hurts either, so I'm getting an evening job. I'm also still doing the logo thing, though that is in all honesty moving a little slower than I had hoped. Still, I'm new to all of this and really can't expect for it to move very fast...I have SO much to learn.
I feel a tad bit better after having gotten that off my shoulders and my hands are steadily beginning to stop shaking. Perhaps I've settled just a bit. Sorry to you guys for the rant, but hell, if I can't rant here, then where???
P.S. Ladies, if you haven't been over to Angel Feathers Tickle Me you should go check out her latest post Imagine A Woman. It is absolutely beautiful!

Secrets of the Mist

I wave my hand and clear the mist that hides a special place. A place of fantasy and myth, of a journey through time and space.
Where fairies fly on wings of silk above a carefree land while many little water nymphs dream of walking on the sand.
I wonder through this world of mine so full of all my dreams Where dragons fly over mountains high, on scaly golden wings.
The fish they take your breath away with their ability to walk, but it does not faze you, not a bit to find roses that can talk.
I wander through this magical place with power to change all I see. The power lays inside my mind, in a flight of fantasy.

My life has been extremely busy lately and oddly enough I haven't really had a lot to say. I'm here, posting, and yet I don't really know where I'm going with this post or if it even has a point. If it did, I guess it would just be this: I'm alive and well and very busy with the mundane, waiting for school to start. Perhaps mundane is too negative a word to use, maybe redundant is a better word to describe my life right now. I feel as if I'm just idling, all geared up and ready to go...revving my engine only to find the track isn't open to me yet. Pure will is keeping me from becoming moody and I find the more I will myself to be excited about getting my home and family ready for this (My family has never really had to deal with me not being around, I'm a stay at home mom at the moment.) experience, the happier I become. All in all, my life is not bad at all. Happy Hump Day!
