We Go Greenhousing... part 2

We love our babies!

Greenhousing involves very serious Mr. Freezee eating.
Which involves intense concentration.

We make goofy faces. Because greenhousing is fun!

Dr Jak's Color Wheel 101

Attention class! *peers over spectacles* this is a color wheel. (see below) There are many different types of color schemes using the colors shown in this wheel. For example. Monochromatic, Triad, and Complementary.
Today we're going to talk about the Analogous color scheme. Don't ask me how to pronounce it. :)

Analogous is a color scheme using 3 colors that are next door neighbors on the color wheel. Some examples are Red, Orange and Yellow. Blue, Purple and Violet are also analogous.

A little clue: the root word here is "analogy" which is a word meaning: "A resemblance of relations; an agreement or likeness"

The beauty of an analogous color scheme is it really complements itself. Pick a color. Any color. The two colors directly on it's right and left are it's two closest relatives. Think of it like a family. Brothers and sisters. They look, feel and sound a lot alike. They make each other stronger, by expressing the same opinion or making the same statement, but each with it's own flair.

Here's an Analogous color scheme. Blue, Turquoise, Lime Green.
Any of these colors by itself has a soothing, calm, tranquil feel to it. Makes me think of oceans and salt spray and summer. Put the three together and it's like adding a little cinnamon to your coffee. Warm and vigorous, but more so.
Add a hat in a coordinating color, if you didn't have time to blow dry your hair and then slept on it....
And coordinate your jewelry to punch the analogy even more. :)

Prince Caspian: A Review

Wow. I promise not to give too much away. :) Promise.

To begin with, the beginning... :) It was disappointing. Really. For some reason it didn't start the way I thought it would... which isn't wrong, just got me on the wrong track. And, the idea of any of the Pevensies having rotten attitudes because they aren't being treated like Kings and Queens in England is a little... hard to swallow. And, things took a turn right away that was just... not true to the book.


That didn't seem to hurt anything! As the movie progressed I got much more excited. Much more! :)
May I say that Edmund has long been my favorite Pevensie. And it was absolutely delightful to see him as King Edmund the Just. Sends shivers down my spine.

Susan was also, surprisingly, very, very like-able. I do like Susan, don't get me wrong, but she's always been my least favorite of the four. She rose considerably in the ranks during this film.

Lucy was herself, adorable. :)

Peter, was very different. So.... human. It was rather hard to get used to, as he is in my mind "High King Peter" and sort of above human mistakes. But, a human Peter, who does make mistakes and becomes a stronger person for them, is maybe even more heroic.

Caspian. Wow. I so was expecting to not like him. Early reports had said he would be cocky. Ben Barnes is also older than the book Caspian and I thought that would be difficult to watch also. But, really, Caspian was very much like I imagined him from the books. He seemed young and innocent and very princely, with no idea how to lead. It was easy to get involved in his story and root for him.

Favorite new character? Reepicheep!!!
Telmarine: "You're a mouse!"
Reep: "Don't you people have any imagination?!"

Gotta love Reepicheep!

There were some new elements to the story that I found intriguing. The night raid on Miraz' castle for instance.

But, the movie also highlighted some of my absolute favorite scenes! And pulled them off exceptionallywell! For instance:
Peter and Miraz' battle: perfect.
Caspian galloping away from the castle as fireworks shoot into the sky overhead.
The Pevensies meeting Trumpkin for the first time, dripping wet.
Peter: "High King Peter (offering his hand) the Magnificent"
Trumpkin looks skeptical
Susan (to Peter): "You could have left off that last part"

Isis Mussenden once again did an outstanding job in the costume department. The Telmarines were pure genius. Everyone's Narnian costumes were breathtaking.

The music was gorgeous.

The overall look and feel of it was magical.

I can't wait for Voyage of the Dawn Treader :)

Coming tomorrow!

A review of Prince Caspian!!

Which "Narnia" character are you?
created with
You scored as Susan Pevensie
You are Susan Pevensie. You are smart and use your logic and common sense to your advantage. You can be bossy however, and often are critical. You are always alert, knowing the whereabouts of your family at all times. You need to lighten up a little.

*Hides under couch*

I don't have any pictures.... :(

I still don't have the camera back....

sorry. Besides, that I wasn't sure you all wanted to see pictures of dirt mounds anyway. The seeds are in the dirt... but you can't see them yet... so... not very interesting, actually.

My summer is about to get crazy, people! just warning you...

Monday, May 12, 2008


I would love very much to show you pictures of my first ever gardening project!

Alas, the camera isn't here *sigh*

Ah Well...


On another note, I've started Pilates and I'm really enjoying them so far! I'll be in shape before you know it! (Maybe)

I've been working on the same sewing project for weeks (maybe months) now, and I'm down to the very last step, sewing in the hook and eye, so hopefully, I'll be able to share pictures of that soon, also.

Current Reading:

How did you all like Dr. Jak's Fashion post I did a couple of weeks ago? I'm going to try to make that a regular thing on this blog and also over on the IDD BLOG as well.

I hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful day!

Mother's Day Rantings...

#1 Will someone please explain why people spend more on their temporary girlfriends on Valentine's Day than on their Mother's? The women that brought them into the world? Raised them? Fed them?

#2 Why is it no one knows their mother's phone number? I can understand not knowing the address... but, the phone number?!!?!?? COME ON!

#3 Why can't I work overtime? WHY?!

#4 Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's that read my blog!!!
My own Mommy... :)

Day Off

I'm taking a break from blogging today... I know what you're thinking... :)

Anyway, instead of talking about myself today, I want to hear about you!

So, if you're on my blog today, say hi! What are you up to?

Heads Up

Mother's Day is THIS SUNDAY People!!! Order flowers NOW!!!

Let's remember all the florists in the world that need 120 hours to get everything done to be ready for the holiday, but aren't allowed to work overtime.

Please, save a florists life.
Order now. And you might wanna offer to pick up the flowers and deliver them yourself. It's more personal that way. And ignore the construction on Main Street. It's not that much of a hassle. Really. And ignore the people trooping in and out trying to fix the coolers, too.

And if you REALLY want brownie points... you could bring your florist a cup of coffee. I'm sure she'd love that.

My latest project of which I am very proud and super excited!!!


Some friends and I have started this blog as a way to encourage and minister to other single Christian girls. We plan to have articles on everything from humor, to waiting on the Lord, fashion, book reviews and all sorts of fun, thought provoking, and encouraging subjects.

Here's the mission statement:

The mission of I Don't Date is to provide support, edification and encouragement to all the 'ladies in waiting' that are committed to courtship (dating with a purpose) and are trusting God to direct their future. We provide an online community which seeks to explore the ideas and ideals of courtship while providing Godly fellowship to each other in each of our paths. We seek to “hustle while we wait,” dedicating whatever season of life we are in to God’s glory and our Christian journey.

Please join us and let us know what you think. We'll be posting regularly Monday-Saturday.

I'm currently gobbling up all the Agatha Christie's I can get my hands on.

Miss Marple is my current favorite.

Although Hercule Poirot is also fascinating
P.S. This particular mystery had me up half the night, first few hours reading it and the next few unable to sleep trying to work it all out... yikes.

Current Favorite TV series:
Foyle's War (WWII, in England!!!!!) Plus, the added bonus of DCS, that's "Detective Chief Superintendent" (love saying that) Foyle, Sam Stewart (love her) :) and Sergeant Milner!!
In between my two ^ currently favorite whodunits :)

Lemony Snicket!
And Jane Austen for a fresh breath of romance.

Holocaust Remembrance Day

Thanks to my friend Krista, I now know that today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. In honor and remembrance of the people that were tortured and killed and still believed...

I believe in the sun
even when
it is not shining

I believe in love
even when
I cannot feel it

I believe in God
even when
He is silent
