Perspective…Take 2

WordPress’s Discover Challenge~ Perspective

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So I was jumpin around on peoples blogs when I came across this coolio WordPress challenge thingie.  🙂

The challenge was all about your blogging perspective…Well, at first I was like…Cool, when I blog, I’m usually sitting at my kitchen table, so I’ll take some pics out my kitchen window to capture my perspective as I sit blogging…and that was fun and I submitted it under my Random Places blog, but then I was thinking.

What is my actual Blogolog type perspective….Hmmmmmm

Then I thought, what is my actual perspective in life?…How do I look at the world?

Well, as I’ve shared on more than one occasion, I’m an Aspie, ADD is good for me, homeschooling mama, and writer/artist/photographer enthusiast-noob.

All those things together Really affect…effect? Lol…I can never get those two straight….the way that I view my surroundings.

For instance, when we went hiking a few weeks back, I brought my camera along…Mistake!

I was stopping every few feet with thoughts of Picture Opportunity flashing through my head.

I was like, Oh my Goodness!! Do you guys see how that stand of trees looks like the setting for a start of an awesome story?  I just have to get a quick pic of that!  Or Wait!  Babe!  Don’t move!  Where your standing your shadow is stretching across that stream and up that tree, it’s perfect!  Let me get a quick shot of it.

….Heavy sighs from the hubster. Lols 😉

And when I’m walking around in life I have so many thoughts running through my head at once it’s like grand central station in there.

I’m usually thinking of something I’m writing or how this sparked a new idea for a story/poem/drawing/painting/etc. or I’m thinking this would be a perfect event to bring the Randomkids for homeschool cause it sooo ties in with what we are studying right now. Rofls

My hubby always says it’s hard keeping up with me, heck it’s hard keeping up with myself. 😮 😉

For starters, he hates watching movies with me cause I look up information about the show while we are watching it and ruin it for myself and/or him.  He also hates watching movies with me because when a movie or show gets slow I want to do something else, so I’m usually watching the TV with him, typing stuff up on my computer, and watching something else on my Ipod all at the same time…drives him Crazy. 😉

Our entire house is one fun mix of Aspie/ADD peeps.  😮

We all have different levels of everything and it affects the way that we do Everything. Lols

For homeschool we usually do unit studies because the Randomkids get into a topic and want to discover every facet of that topic….it then becomes my job to bring in as much diversity into that topic as possible…crossing those synapses. 😉

We all also get easily overwhelmed with things in life…people, circumstances, sounds, feelings, sights, you name it, it can overwhelm us.  I never know when these Aspie Overloads or Meltdowns…depending on the severity…as we call them will happen.

Each one of us handles our meltdowns in different ways too.

I need to block out life by listening to music with headphones and go be outside in nature or listen to music with headphones and paint or take pictures out in nature or listen to music with headphones and write out in nature…are you sensing a running theme?  🙂

Each of my Randomkids and the Hubster handle Overloads in their own ways as well.  I try to be sensitive to their needs as much as I can.  We all can understand the whys of meltdowns, but don’t always recognize when it’s going to happen.

I try to observe when a sitch seems to be climaxing to a point that might overwhelm one of us, but sometimes it triggers an overload and sometimes it doesn’t. It’s usually a crapshoot. :/

For instance, yesterday the hubster was having an overload and I didn’t even recognize that it was an overload until this morning and I was thinking about his behavior.

His escape from meltdowns is usually running off into TV land, working out, and snack eating…sometimes it’s all at once. Lols

He’ll be down in the basement weight lifting or biking, watching Netflix or Youtube Workout vids on his tablet, and snacking on veggies or fruit or chips or yogurt or whatever else I have laying around. Rofl  🙂

But all of this Randomness is a gift.  Looking at the world with our head cocked to the side and slightly down and right of center is what makes our lives so interesting.

When I teach my Randomkids I never really know what they will come up with because the way they interpret what we talk about is so Completely different than where I was going with it.

When I write my stories they are so unusual and straight outta left field that people find them an enjoyable escape from the normalcy of life.

I love my Aspie/ADD/Random type nutsy-cuckoo feelin kinda life.

It’s taken me a long time to realize that weirdness is where it’s at and sameness is mediocrity blahsville….not a place that I would Ever want to be. God created me for my individuality not so I could go along with everyone else’s pace.

As I always say, It’s All Good. …said like Joe Cool Snoopy with his shades on. 😉

So three cheers for all of us, Random is as Random does, type individuals.

Life Prompts…

I was going through my homeschool stuff and found a poetry book that I didn’t know I had. Biiiig surprise there. 😉

It’s a book of 47 poetic forms, sooooo, I decided to highlight each of the forms on my Randomstories Blog…Yay! 47 days of challenging prompts. 😀 😀

47 Days of Poetry!  Hyper-Whoot!!

I’m also challenging myself to post a photo or art project every day M-F during March. Yay! …Again. More reasons to take pictures. 😉 😀

Aaaand, I am also going to attempt to….drumroll please…. combine some blogs! Ta-dah! Lol 😉

So, hopefully with all that and everything else I do, I’ll be able to keep up. We shall see what happens.

On another note…..

This morning I had a new lesson on this always moving forward Not going back pathway I’m on.

I had the proverbial don’t cry over spilled milk sitch…well actually it was spilled glass…well, broken glass….and technically there was spilled water as well. Lol

Anyhoo, my hubby spilled an entire pitcher of water all down the front of himself right before going out the door and not 15 minutes later, I spilled….er, broke a pyrex dish all over the kitchen counter, sink, and floor. Lol

So here’s the thing, in the past that would have set the tone for the entire day for me….. But keeping in mind my new baby steps out the door direction, my hubby and I had a good laugh at his own expense with the water and again at mine with the broken glass later.

…Okay, maybe I wasn’t laughing with the broken glass right away but after I had gathered myself a bit from the shock and irritation and everyone started cracking jokes about it, I felt better.
So, Baby Steps out of the broken glass. Lols!! 😉 🙂

The Amazing Appearing Fence

Wowsers! I woke up this morning to sporadic yelling, banging, and thumping in the backyard. I pulled back the curtains and what did I see?

new fence 1

This Incredibly Amazing Appearing Fence! It popped up out of nowhere! 😮
The snow just melted yesterday, and here today low and behold is this sticking up out of the ground, as if by magic. 😮 😮
I had posted about our Receding Hedge Line a bit ago, and the neighbors had mentioned something about a fence. But I thought that wasn’t until spring…and it was only a possibility. So, Wowsers again!
I looked out 20 minutes later and was met with this..

new fence line 2

Whew! Those guys move Fast!! Greased lightning fast!
So, here we are only a few hours from my discovery of said fence and it is by all appearances…finished. 😮 😮 😮

new fence line 3

It took waaaaay longer for them to cut down and remove the original Hedge line than it did for them to put up and build this fence………..
Like all day, compared to just a few hours. 😮
Hmmmmm, I think there must be moral hidden somewhere here…..
A poem or story prompt maybe?? ……….Hmmmm…again.

Happy Fencing! Lol 😀
