Celebrate The Small Things - August 18, 2017

 

I haven't posted in a couple of weeks so this will encompass the last two weeks. 

We discovered a place near our house that has two waterslides, a splash pad, and a pool that is really cheap. It's $1 for kids and $2 for adults. My kids went down the waterslides for the first time. At first, my younger son refused to go on it because it was too high, but he didn't want to wait for us by himself, so he followed us up. After he came down for the first time, he was all smiles and wanted to go on it again. They went down it about ten times. I was done in three or four. It's too bad that I only found out about this place two weeks before school started. We enjoyed it, though.

We were supposed to meet our friends from the gym there, but they went to the wrong pool. A couple of days later, we met up, but the waterslides weren't working, so we ended up at the pool they went to the first time. My friend has four kids. My kids play with her three boys on the Xbox and they take mixed martial arts together at the gym. It was nice for the kids to actually go out and play together instead of play in a virtual world (video games) which is what they did most of the summer.
Last weekend we went to a birthday party where they played laser tag outside in a cul-de-sac, swam in a pool, and played old fashioned games like kick-the-can and another game that I forget the name of. My older son loves kick-the-can. In an era where it's dangerous for kids to play outside, I'm glad he got to play that and enjoyed it. 

The kids went back to school at the end of last week, so I'm getting back into my old routine. 
We watched Elle Ip's inspiring weight lost journey on YouTube which got me more motivated to lose weight. If you get the chance, watch it. She's amazing! When she was pregnant with her second child, she declared that she was going to compete in a fitness competition the following year. She was overweight, had no trainer, no gym membership, no nanny, and no nutritionist. She worked her butt off at home. That's discipline!
My new workout plan includes a lot more cardio. I took my dogs for a walk a few times and jogged with them as part of my cardio. Within ten minutes, sweat was pouring down my face. My clothes are starting to feel a little looser which is a slight improvement. I'm following Sarah Louise Hawkins' workout because she has about the same build/body type I have.
As part of my cardio, I'm also doing Zumba workouts at home from YouTube. In doing so, I found a few new songs I really like. I love discovering new songs! They are Chammak Challo by Akon, Vente Pa Ca by Ricky Martin, and Tu Me Quemas by Chino y Nacho featuring Gente De Zona and Los Cadillacs.

I fixed our running toilet this week. I replaced the connector and the valve as well. I had to drive to the hardware store three times, but I got it fixed without too much of a problem. Yay! Thank God for YouTube!

Almost every night before going to sleep, I've been working on two outlines for webcomic stories. I work on my graphic novels during the day, but I'm trying to set aside 10-15 minutes per day at least on putting a webcomic together which includes writing the outlines. I think it was James Joyce who worked on his writing 15 minutes per day while working a day job. Slow and steady wins the race eventually!

I hope you had a good week!

Celebrate The Small Things - August 4, 2017

 
This week a friend of mine told me about an Al Hirshfeld documentary on YouTube that I ended up watching. It was inspirational and it made me want to watch more biographies. 

My husband found a biography of Arnold Schwarzenegger on YouTube as well and that was also motivational. It seems like successful people are very focused, determined, hard-working, lucky, are not swayed by people who don't like what they do, and think outside-the-box.

I did not win the Scholastic Graphix contest, but I'm still working on my graphic novel and will eventually get it published. I was disappointed that they chose people who already had a following, won a contest before, have established webcomics, and completed graphic novels before. It was my understanding that they were looking for a debut/new graphic novelist. Looking at it from a money standpoint, I can understand how Scholastic would feel safer going with people who already have a following. I don't even have a single comic online. 

So, I'm going to continue working on my graphic novel and work on starting a webcomic. I am working on an outline for a webcomic that is in the teen drama/fantasy genre. I have thumbnails for funny comics, but it's hard to come up with funny stuff on a regular basis, so I'm debating on whether or not to develop them for webcomics.

I started a new workout program this week that kicked my butt. Weight lifting makes me very tired which doesn't help when I'm working on my graphic novel. Coffee doesn't help keep me awake either, but I still drink it haha.

I've been thinking about our blog hop host Lexa Cain. She has been sick and has not been online. I hope she is okay. Please pray for her to get better. 

Enjoy your weekend. Make the most of it.

Celebrate The Small Things - July 21, 2017

 

I've missed the last two weeks of posting since around the 4th of July. My father-in-law came to town and stayed with us for a couple of days. We went to Disneyland and California Adventure for two days. 

For the 4th of July my father-in-law wanted to grill at our house, so that's what we did. We walked to the park later that night and watched the fireworks display. While the fireworks show was going on, we saw a strange light moving in different directions. Up, down, right, left, up, and up. It wasn't a plane and it was too fast for a helicopter. I'm not sure if it was a UFO or a drone. I wanted to watch it, but I also wanted to watch the fireworks, so I was looking back and forth at them. Haha. I didn't feel like I needed to be concerned about it, so maybe that's why it didn't keep my attention. Now I wish I had videotaped it. D'oh! My husband recorded it for a short period of time. He texted me the video, but when he did, the colors dropped out. When we saw the lights, I saw reddish-orange, white, and green. My husband and son said they didn't see green. They saw blue. When it was texted to me, it was all white. I don't know why I didn't pay more attention. I don't even remember the colors clearly anymore. I just know the lights were jumping around very high up in the sky.
 
Before my father-in-law left, we got him to play One Night Werewolf with us. They are very short 10 minute games that are a lot of fun. If you get the werewolf card, you have to convince the other players that you're not the werewolf. If there is more than one werewolf, they team up. It can get complicated, but once you know the rules, even kids can understand it. My youngest son loves to play it. My father-in-law had to pause at the beginning of the game to ask, "What does the Alpha Wolf do?" So, we knew he was the Alpha Wolf and voted him off at the end of the game. We had a lot of laughs playing the game.
 
We also have (One Night) Daybreak and One Night Vampire. One Night Alien came out recently, so we bought it at a gaming store last weekend. Our son was so happy! I think this game is the most fun out of all the One Night games because the narrator is funnier (on the app) and you get to switch other players' cards more often while their eyes are closed. These are the only non-video games our kids love.

We went to the beach last weekend and parking was terrible. The kids only got to swim in the water for about an hour because of the parking, so this weekend we are going to try another beach with an actual parking lot. Hopefully, it will be a better outing than last time. At least we had an hour of swim time. Celebratin' the small things!
 
Have a great weekend!

Celebrate The Small Things - June 23, 2017

 

This week I read the news more than usual which put me in a depressive state all week. Especially after reading about Otto Warmbier's passing. I need to stop reading the news for a while and listen to motivational speakers or something to bring more positive energy into my home. After getting upset about the news, the air feels thick with negative energy. It makes it harder to celebrate the small things.

But, I am able to find something positive out of the week. I cleaned out and moved a chest of drawers that was tucked away in a cluttered room. In it I found a $25 iTunes card that still had money on it! Hahaha! It must be years old! Never been used.

I also received my Johnny Jump Up seeds in the mail. I planted them and am hoping they grow well because I don't have much of a green thumb.

It took me an hour to clean the blinds in the bathroom today. I wiped every single slat with a wet rag. We've made advances in technology, but not a better way to clean blinds. I have a brush attachment for blinds on my vacuum, but it doesn't remove all the dust. The good thing is, the blinds look great now. 
 
I'm sick and tired of this cleaning. I just want to work on my graphic novel! I have one more week before our guests arrive. The place is looking pretty good if I do say so myself. My family hasn't said a thing about how good the place looks, though, which is irksome. I can't wait for Vietnam Vets to come next week to take away more of our junk.

I'm halfway through the graphic novel Kill My Mother by Jules Feiffer. I came across this book by dumb luck. After lunch one weekend, the whole family had to use the restroom so we stopped off at a library to use their restroom. (lol!) It was at a library far from our home, but in the same county. It's embarrassing to just stop in to use their restroom, so I wanted to check out a book. 
 
I saw the Jules Feiffer book and recognized the name and art style. I discovered his artwork a few months ago even though he has been doing comics for decades. Even before I was born. The artwork wasn't as charming as I was expecting so I put it back on the shelf, but picked it back up at the last minute. I checked out other books which I can easily return near our home since the libraries are connected to the same network. 
 
When I brought it home, I looked at the drawings again and wasn't going to read the book at all because they weren't impressive to me. It got a good review from Neil Gaiman, so I decided to give it a go. After reading the first few pages, I was hooked. It's a mystery that starts off with an incredibly ungrateful daughter who wants to kill her mother. The girl's father died, so her mother had to get a job. She got a job working for her husband's best friend who is an alcoholic detective. She basically does all the work. He hits on her, puts her in unnecessary danger, and makes her work late even though she has to get home to her daughter. The daughter is selfish and only sees that her mother is never there for her. At the same time, the mother is trying to find her husband's killer. 
 
It's more complicated than this, but that's how it starts off. The writing is great! 
 
Upon closer inspection of the drawings and the layout of the pages, I'm finding that this guy is a pretty brilliant artist. At first glance, the drawings look scribbly and naive, but the scribbles give the drawings energy and movement. It looks as if he doesn't know much about human anatomy, but as I studied some of the drawings, it appears that he does have a good knowledge of the figure. I'm finding the drawings very charming after all.

He studied under Will Eisner which is impressive in itself, but the way he writes dialogue is exceptional. It just draws you in. No pun intended. I think I found a gem.

I hope you have found life's gems this week as well! Have a great weekend!

Celebrate The Small Things - June 16, 2017

 
This week I did a couple of drawings on post-its for a group sketch challenge on Instagram. Below are my entries for "pansy" and "shoe."


I did a little research for "pansy" and discovered that there are many kinds.

When my son was in daycare over a decade ago, there were pretty little flowers growing along the driveway at the daycare provider's house. I asked the daycare provider what type of flowers they were. She didn't remember what they were called. She is from Yugoslavia, so English is not her first language. It wasn't something she could easily remember. She thought they were called "jumping jacks" or something like that. I looked it up, but was never able to find out what type of flower they were.

As I did my research on the pansies for this challenge, I noticed that the flowers looked similar to the "jumping jack" flower I was looking for over ten years ago. Lo and behold, I found the flower! It is called "Johnny Jump Up" otherwise known as Viola Tricolor. I also found out that you can eat it and it's good for asthma. I ordered the seeds from Amazon for $2.49. Nice!

I'm still cleaning up my house and still making progress, but apparently not fast enough.

I managed to get a few more drawings done for my graphic novel. The winners for the Scholastic Graphix contest were selected on June 1, but they won't be announced until the end of July. I'm getting so nervous! I'm afraid I didn't get selected, but I'm trying to stay positive. On some days, I think I've won, but on others I think the opposite. I just have to keep working and not think about it.

I started reading The Lunch Witch graphic novel because I like the drawings, but it's turning out to be a very charming book so far!

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!
Have a great weekend!

Celebrate The Small Things - June 9, 2017

 

This week I celebrated my birthday on the weekend and on the day of, so I got to go to dinner twice. My family got me a chocolate, gluten-free cake which was delicious and sang to me when I got up in the morning. I was so preoccupied with blowing out all those candles that I forgot to make a wish! So, my husband lit the candles again and they sang the birthday song to me again even though I told them they didn't have to. Hahaha!

When we went to dinner, the staff at the restaurant sang to me and I forgot to make a wish before blowing the candle out again! I really am getting old! 

I happened upon a podcast on YouTube called Horrifying Search and Rescue Stories. I must say, those were the most interesting things I've heard all week. I've never heard of people seeing stairs in the middle of the woods before. I was thinking they were from an old dwelling, but that doesn't seem the case in these stories. They had no leaves and no dirt on them. People were told not to go near them, but when one person did, his hand got chopped off. WTH? And the stairs are not always in the same spot they were before. Wow, there are more creepy things in the woods than I thought. I'm glad I came across this podcast, though. I love creepy stories like that.

My husband asked me if I wanted jewelry for my birthday, but I'm not into jewelry. I prefer books, art supplies, and makeup. 
 
I'm trying to reduce clutter by not buying books, but I really wanted Guy Delisle's books A User's Guide To Neglectful Parenting and Even More Bad Parenting Advice. My husband bought them for me and I finished them right away. They are so funny! My kids even read them and thought they were funny. I have some story ideas like these thumbnailed out that I really need to re-draw and color.

Have a great weekend!

Celebrate The Small Things - June 2, 2017





 

This week I did some major house cleaning with my sons. We worked on their room and now it looks like a newer, bigger room.  We gave away and threw out a lot of toys that they outgrew or broke. I removed the baby mats from their bedroom floor. The mats were there to protect them from getting hurt if they fell on the hardwood floor. I think my husband is sad to see the mats go because it reminds him that the kids are not babies anymore. He didn't say it outright, but he said, "Their room is going to be colder in the winter now. The mats were keeping the heat in." Uh huh. 

I put a few of the mats outside for my other babies, my dogs. It's softer for them to lie on and they're less dirty when they come in the house. It will save money on dog wipes. In theory. If they continue to lie down in the dirt then that will defeat the purpose. There used to be a small patch of grass next to the wall, but one of my dogs dug it up and likes to sleep on the pile of dirt during the day. I thought a raccoon was digging up my yard, but nope. It was my dog. Not that we don't have grass. We have a good sized yard with lots of grass, but she prefers to lie in the dirt. Lucky me.

My youngest son marked up the walls with crayon when he was a toddler. I saved them for him to clean up when he was old enough. Today was the day! Sweet revenge! Haha! I also saved a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for years for him to use on the walls. He did a great job!

He's better at cleaning than tidying up anyway. If I tell him to put his toys away, he'll put them all in a bag and shove them in the closet. They get bent, broken, and thrown in in random order. I found clothes I ironed for him shoved and balled up in the closet as well. I told him to hang up his clothes. Later, I found FOUR shirts on ONE hanger for PANTS. Two shirts on each clip. Of course, they were wrinkled. I spend an hour or more every Sunday ironing school uniforms for the kids. I am not going to re-iron these clothes. I hung them back up and he is going to school with wrinkled clothes. 

After a week of cleaning, their room is not done, but we made good progress. Now they have clutter-free, clean, vacuumed floors!

I managed to get a some things done on my graphic novel so I guess it wasn't a complete loss.
