One of my favorite bloggers, Monica from The Homespun Heart, held a “Cozy” swap that you could participate in if you signed up in time. Of course I signed up and I’m so glad that I did. :) This is what my cozy partner sent to me. How cute is all of that stuff?! Once I hear from her that she has received the package I sent to her, I’ll show you a picture of that. :)
Last night, while looking at a news feed about Hayden Panettierre and her quest to save the dolphins from Japanese fisherman, I saw a brief bit of footage of a dog being skinned alive, then lying there –no skin at all– blinking and slowly breathing. I was so disturbed by it that it made me literally sick. I know it’s wrong of me to think so probably, but for the most part, the human race as a whole absolutely DISGUSTS me. I prayed on it because I really just feel hatred for human “nature.”
Can you imagine how much that dog suffered? I immediately closed the video. I was instantly sick and heartbroken. I think the video was from China, I don’t even know. There was a flash of words that said something about Chinese people thinking that an animal tastes better if it’s tortured first. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I can’t get that image out of my head. I’m just sick. Poor, poor dog. I really just don’t like people much right now. :( How we manage to survive without being struck down is totally beyond me. We are so selfish and greedy that we don’t care about anything else but ourselves. And obviously, I know we’re not all bad, but as a whole, collectively….ugh, I just don’t know. :( I’m so sad. I’m praying for us, that’s for sure!
Ok, back to happy thoughts…
Today is my nephew’s birthday. He’s having a party tomorrow and I can’t wait to see the little booger. He’s six. I don’t get to spend a lot of time with him now that he’s in school. It makes me sad.
I don’t know what y’all think, but my hubby makes one cute elf, huh? :) Wait until you see his moves!
What was your first “real” job? I was a tour guide through the cave at Sequoyah Caverns (my Daddy was the manager there so I was there every day anyway).
Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity? I like going to the Chickamauga Battlefield because I always find something there to photograph. It’s very peaceful and I enjoy my time there.
Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when…people pay me a compliment.
What values did your parents instill in you? My mother instilled cleanliness. She’s a clean freak. My house is usually always clean, but unfortunately I inherited my grandmother’s packratitis so they counteract. LOL My father instilled a love and appreciation for nature, history, and our ancestry. It’s mostly his fault I am the way I am. ;)
Name 3 fads from your teenage years. I can show you three fads by sharing one picture of myself from 1985. LOL:
2) Blue Eyeshadow
3) T-shirts with large prints. The one I’m wearing was very popular (I still have that shirt) and then a slogan from Wham! that said “Choose Life.” :)
Have a beautiful weekend!
