Aaaand the temperature outside…at least this morning actually Felt like Fall. Yay! Continue reading


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.

Buttons, Badges, and Icons Oh My…

So I am relatively new to this whole blogger thing…..I see on other blog peeps sites all these various buttons, badges, icons, etc..

Just what are all these stinking buttons and what do they all do. 😮
From my observations, I’m pretty sure they do random things…..that’s cool. I like random things.
I even visited a blog recently that had a page on it just for buttons, badges, icons, awards. 😮 and whoa 🙂
I’d love to say I understand it all, but sadly I don’t.

Note to Self:
Doggone it Woman, Pull out that blogging book you bought and get down to some serious reading. 😉

I do participate in Haiku Horizons and thankfully they explained how to insert their little button onto my post. Thank you Haiku Horizons for making that experience pretty much effortless, now all I do is just copy and paste week to week from my old Haiku Hullabaloo…easy peasy. 🙂

Now on to more Button-ee type convos.
I was chatting with a fellow bloggie friend and one bunny trail led to another and bam we were discussing the whole To be a no awards blog or Not to be a no awards blog deliberation….I didn’t even know there was such a thing. 😮

I don’t understand too much about the Awarding thing….and quite honestly unless there is an award for Worst Grammatical Usages on a Blog, Most Random Drivel Written About, or Excessive Use of Lols, Winky, and Shocked Smilies….. I don’t think I have any Awards in my blogologin future. 😉
Buuut my bloggie friend had recently been nominated for some type of award…I don’t remember the name….So we started looking up more info on it….which by the way, it is hard to find out info about some of this stuff.
So anyhow, we were discussing this particular award and we both said to each other at the same time, it sounds like a chain letter…… Jinx you owe me a soda! Ha!!

Aaaaanyhoo, when I was surfin around various sites, I stumbled on a couple of blogs with a little icon on their page that said something to the gist of Award Free Blog..blah, blah, blah, ditty, doodah. 😀
Naturally, I thought….  What a novel idea? So, I created my own…cause I blogalog to keep my creative juices flowin’ and cause I like talkin’ to ya’ll….not to be awarded anything.  😉  😀

But now I have No clue how to put it on my blog.

It Figures. Lol

P.S.- Any of you out there in Blog land know anything about buttons, badges, icons or awards?  Leave me a line or 2 in the box. 🙂

By the way, this is my little badge, icon, button, whatever the heck it’s called….cause at least I know how to post it In my blog…. I think.  Oy


….Of course, I’m still workin’ on it. 😉

Happy Bloggin’ 😀

Blogging…So much to learn, so little time.

I’m sure most of you out there in Bloggolog Land know this already, but I just found out about it a couple of days ago.

I was enlightened about the existence of a Like Button for Blog Comments!!!! 😮 😮 😮

I kept seeing people like comments on Bloggers sites and I was thinking they had some Mystical Magical Monkey Power…Kim Possible reference 😀 … that I didn’t have access to or know about.

I got into a harmless little convo with a friend and fellow Blogger about commenting and replying to comments, cause I was even having trouble with that.  *insert your choice of rolleyes emoticon here*

I bring up the like button ish, and bam she drops the knowledge on me that you can like a comment.

Whaaaaaaaaat??  Holy Randomness Batman!!  I didn’t know I could do that!!

So now, I am just bustin to use this comment liking power…I know, with great power comes great blah-blah-blah….Here I go Likin’ Comments Power Awaaaaaay!
