Art Crunch

Things have happened so fast.

While we’ve been lightly talking about things for awhile, and here and there since the end of January…I think it was mid-March that we actually started looking more seriously.

And now we have land, a tentative house plan all-but-approved, and permit papers to sign.

We are moving, Lord willing, by the end of Summer/if not the year. Our prayers have been answered in ways that we can only say, “Thank You!”…It has been surprising at least once every week, if not daily.

The footprint of the house is “tiny” in a relative sense. All these art supplies can’t come with us, so it’s crunch time during this (hopefully) small waiting season.

Go time!


Hyrule Warriors Twilight Map C7 Skulltula Bug

We finally collected the last skulltula of Hyrule Warriors last night. Turns out all of our “A” tries before which seemed like they should have had the 1,200 + not more than 4 hearts skulltula show up…should have. There must be a glitch or bug because while you can technically choose to play as any character, if that character happens to be Link, the second skulltula won’t show up. Two player or solo.

We found this out when my sister switched to Young Link last night and our enemy to defeat was not Lana as it had been all of the tries before. The boss of C7 is supposed to be Link, not Lana. Even the visual 8-bit for the map shows Link as the enemy you are facing. So to get the gold skulltula to show up when you complete the first mission without losing 4 hearts & then defeat 1,200 enemies…do not play as Link.

Little Leia

Tonight my chihuahua went and sat in front of the mirror up against the wall. There is a bar stool in front of it to keep my sister’s cat from knocking it down and a cardboard box from Aldi under the stool. Both Leia and Oliver like to sit in there occasionally. But tonight, she walked over, sat in the box, and looked forward at herself then started growling a low growl.

It was heartbreaking to watch.

I interrupted her and asked what she was doing and just got the biggest puppy dog eyes back at me.

Whether she was growling at herself, or the “other dog” in the mirror, it was just a small picture of anytime I or any (perhaps every is more accurate) other woman I know has done that same thing. How Jesus must feel when He sees one of us growl when looking at ourselves. It’s not a pretty thing to think on. It’s heartbreaking.

My dog isn’t perfect. But she’s bought and paid for. And she’s my gift. No one, not even my Leia, should growl at my Leia when they see her.
