Current Preoccupations...

  • I posted about Proverbs 31 the other day, but I think I am going to have to put that on the back burner. I ordered some books from Barnes & Noble (I know, I know. I hate them, but I had a gift card so I took advantage of it) and these new books have a higher priority. I got So Long, Insecurity: You've Been a Bad Friend to Us by Beth Moore (and oh, heck yes, I am linking you to Amazon for that one) and the associated devotional book. Some people have a bit of issue with Beth Moore, but I absolutely love her. She's a woman after my own heart and I love how her ministry really gets into a woman's perspective. I've had so many problems understanding what it means to be a woman and so much trouble learning how to be a "good" woman - and even more confusion as to what a Christian woman is all about. I didn't really have a great role model in my mother, and though I love my husband, being a woman really isn't something that he can teach me. I've closely watched other women in my life: my paternal grandmother, my step-mother, my paternal aunts, my mother-in-law, etc. It has helped, but learning about women in the Bible and learning about God's plan for women has been phenomenal. And Beth Moore's books and studies have resonated the most with me and have taught me the most.

  • In all the confusion of all my moving around these last few years, I lost the comics I drew for my friend Lauren while we worked together at the casino. Today, I found a large portion of them, so I want to scan them and re-touch them. I might even expand some of them, but that really depends on how much time I have on my hands - time without the background music of a screaming, cranky toddler.

  • I have a digital art project that has been "in the works" for months now. I am colouring the Asterodea Lineart by the talented Cat Craig, aka "Catzilla". It is going to be shiny and gloriously gaudy, because I seriously only just discovered masks in Photoshop! lol. Though, completion might wait until after taxes - we're looking at new laptops and rearranging our current computer uses. And it might be easier to do that than make the desktop computer that I am working on now art-friendly. :/

  • I am working on uploading my recipes. I have a notebook template mocked up in Microsoft Publisher and I plan on offering a printable file for each recipe I post, plus a link back to wherever I found the recipe or was inspired to create it. Honestly, aside from the Beth Moore book above, this will probably be my priority until new laptops come in.

Aaaaaannnnnd, that's what I'm up to...

I've also been on a World of Warcraft break for about two months now, and I am not sure if I will be going back. Just getting that out there...
