I’m having fun.

 Message me here!          Hey, X! Why do you believe in God?

Lookie what I made:

fun with baby blocks

I started with a picture of a stack of baby blocks. Then, in Paint Shop Pro, I made each letter a different file. Then, I put them in Windows Live Writer, one picture at a time. Once it was all done, I did shift/print screen to copy what I had done into the clipboard. Then, I went back to Paint Shop Pro and pasted the clipboard as a new image. Then, cropped it and saved it as a jpeg. Whew!

I am not a Paint Shop Pro expert at all, but my mother gave me her old copy, version 5, of it. I’m trying to learn how to use it. I would like to learn how to make fun picture effects like Jodi did when she made my banner with a picture of Rufus and a drawing of a pond. I have a lot of pictures both of our birds and other pets and of my backyard and pond. I’d like to make my own personalized banner, once I learn how to do the fancy stuff.

This would be really fun as a font, but I don’t have a clue how to make a font.

I first wanted to make this because I thought it would make a fun banner for my space. But, my space is all pink, and the primary and secondary colors would clash and make my eyes jumpy.

Anybody know how to make a font?

Gumby is still trying to hatch her jellybean.

Message me here!          Hey, X! Why do you believe in God?

I wrote recently about my two parakeets, brother and sister, who want to start a family. I said how I had to take the eggs away and gave her white jellybeans, instead. I’ve done this before with other related parakeets. Eventually, they figure the “egg” isn’t going to hatch, and they go on to different activities. 

But, Gumby and Beady, her mate, have not given up on this jellybean. It is so sweet, but sad, too. The only other thing to do is keep them apart, and that would be cruel, too. Parakeets mate for life, and Beady has already out-lived two long-time mates. Beady is my oldest baby who was born here, and he is the cutest, too. I have a soft place in my heart for him, and all the grown up babies, and want them to be happy.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

To my Hubby and me, Christmas is not celebrated with snowmen, reindeer, jingle bells, elves and Santa. To us, it’s another day to be thankful that God chose to be born as a man, to live on earth, and die on earth, for his creation, mankind. Although nobody really knows on what day of the year Jesus was born, this is the day set aside as His Birthday. For some reason, we humans give each other gifts on Jesus’ birthday. I’ve never really figured that out, but by hubby and I get each other a gift, or get a joint gift, every Christmas.

At my house, it’s just me, my Hubby, and all the pets. I’m having a nice lazy Christmas with my Hubby. The kids are grown and away at college. They are in town for Christmas, so sometime this long weekend we will be getting together with them, we hope. They have busy lives, but we hope we will be able to round up all three to share a meal some time.

My hubby is taking a much deserved Christmas Day nap. The dogs, birds and I are waiting for him to wake up so we can play with him. Yippy, my hubby woke up. Time to play.

Happy Birthday Jesus! Thank you for everything good in our lives. Thank you even for our challenges, for without them, we would not be able to see you work miracles in our lives.
