I like the music in the wizard of Oz.
Cowardly Lion
: I'd be brave as a blizzard...
Tin Woodsman: I'd be gentle as a lizard...
Scarecrow: I'd be clever as a gizzard...
Dorothy: If the Wizard is a wizard who will serve.
Scarecrow: Then I'm sure to get a brain...
Tin Woodsman: A heart...
Dorothy: A home...
Cowardly Lion: The nerve!

I love old movies and plays. They bring so many good memories. I love it.

Accident prone

This past week was an accident prone week for me. I tripped once but caught myself. Hit my lip on a wall, and I tripped for real because I tripped on uneven sidewalk. It hurt a lot. I got some bruises and scrapes. I did somewhat of a summersault on the cement. Hope everyone is well.

Funny work pictures

Here are some recent pictures that I have taken at work. The first picture is of the helmet that I wore when I cleaned the chicken coop at work. It is a hard helmet with ear sound protectors, and a mask in the front. Sandy's husband uses it for weed-eing. The second picture is when it rained really hard and a lot when I was at work. I didn't put the hood on the rain coat and I decided to do this to keep the rain off my hair even though it was already wet at the time. Sandy's husband got a new feeder to feed the sheep, lamb, and llama their hay. It makes it a lot easier. Basically I just get the hay cut off the bailing twine and then I put the hay into the feeder and they have food. Have a good day. :)
People cannot make us feel mad unless we let them.
In other words, we are in control of how we think. We are in charge of how we feel. We are free to choose how we act. Just knowing this can liberate us from feeling stuck and feeling like others and our circumstances have power over us to dictate how we should feel, think, and act. This principle can be stated as follows: WE ARE FREE TO CHOOSE HOW WE THINK, FEEL, AND ACT AND KNOWING THIS CAN LIBERATE US FROM FEELING STUCK IN OUR EMOTION COMMOTION.
I just wanted to share these words from one of my classes.

I have been thinking recently that I should write a blog about things I am grateful for. I am glad that I got the chance to work for Virginia. She taught me some good things about life. She taught me to have patience, to learn how to grow a love for someone. I am glad to live in the United States. I listen to country most of the time now and when I do when I am going to work they play the national anthem every day at noon. We have so many blessings because we live in the USA. I have also been gaining a appreciation for the ability to do all that I can. Sandy has taught me to appreciate being able to use both hands. I had a dream and could use only one hand and it made me appreciate Sandy even more. I find that laughing helps me to be grateful. Humor helps us to remember to be thankful for what we have. Friends are another thing I am grateful for. They teach me things even if they don't know it. I am grateful for beautiful days. Have a wonderful day my friends. :)

Summer 2009

This summer has been a great one. I have had a lot of fun and have learned a lot of new things.
In June my niece Kalli turned 3 years old. I helped my sister Reva with her birthday party. We had lots of fun with water and other party games.
I went to a couple of my friends wedding receptions. It was great to be able to travel and have the time to think!
I cut my hair on July 9th. It has been nice to have shorter hair. It makes things easier and harder at the same time.
In May I started a new job. Virginia the lady I was working for passed away. It was sad she died, but she is in a better place. Sandy my new boss is a lot of fun. I don't think there has been a day where I haven't laughed at something that happened at work. She has some very cute animals. Apollo the Llama and Stomper one of the sheep are my favorites. The animals teach me many lessons that I can apply to my life.
My car was expensive for me this summer. First I had a motor that sounded like it was going to die, then I had brake issues, and then I have had tire problems. It is crazy.
In July I had a family reunion in Idaho. We went swimming, played games, talked, and ate food. I enjoyed the time I spent with my family.
One very eventful thing that happened at my apartment was that the sewer backed up in our downstairs bathroom. It was gross and stinky.
My summer was a very good one filled with adventure and excitement.

For about the last three weeks at work I have been helping my boss Sandy with cherries. It has been a lot of work, but fun. I learned how to make fruit rolls too. We use a food processor to mix up the cherries into a liquid like substance. Then we put it onto a cookie sheet that has glad wrap(or mad wrap as Sandy calls it). The sheep, llama, and hens are loving the goodies they get. They get the cherries that they birds get to. It is fun feeding the animals at work. That is all for today folks.

My adventurous job

Two Saturday's ago at my job I did some weeding and while I was weeding I had a grand adventure crawling underneath the branches of a bush to get to the weeds. I felt like I was in a cave but I was not. I also get to feed cute animals. When they were in the area where the hay is for a while the sheep would try to get into the chicken coop because I was giving the chickens grain or taking care of them. They knew that grain was in the chicken coop. It is a fun time feeding the animals.

Making taffy

This past Sunday Jeanni Evans and I made homemade taffy. It was a lot of fun. It went a lot faster than I thought it would. It was really hot when we started to pull it. It was worth the pulling of the hotness. It was also funny because I put the fork on a package of butter to set it aside until we were done. Well after we were done and cleaning up the taffy had cooled like in the picture. It was cool.

Spring Cleaning

So recently because of moving I have been doing a lot of sorting through all of my things. It is crazy all the things that I keep and hold onto. I just thought to myself as I was doing some of the sorting, "why have I kept this?" I filled up part of a box with paper that can be recycled it was crazy. I am glad that all that paper is not going to waste. It hasn't hit me as hard about conserving things as it has this semester with how the economy is and from being in a really awesome Natural Resource and Society class. I enjoyed this class a lot. We learned about the environment but also about relationships in general. It was great!!! Well to do other things I go hy ho hy ho hy ho.

So I have a question for everyone. What are your thoughts on how attitude affects how we live in our daily lives? What do you think when you hear a performance and its good but the person doesn't seem like they want to play or be there? What is the affect of people seeming like they don't want to be somewhere? I have to write a story for a class and I need to know what others think? If this doesn't make sense ask me to clarify what is not making sense. Thanks so much.

Tire Rotation

Today I went and had my tires rotated and I thought that getting tires rotated was something totally different than it really is. Tire rotation is where they move tires to different tire axles on the vehicle. It is funny that I thought that is not what was done. I also learned how I can change the air filter on my car. It was cool. Hope everyone is well. Have a good day.

Remembering things of the past

So while working a school project I was reminded of old tv shows that I used to watch. One that hit me in particular was Mr. Rogers. I loved that show because of the new things that I could learn and the imaginary neighborhood. It is good to take time to play in our lives. Sometimes it is just what we need to get us through a tough day.
Have a awesome pawsome day!!!!!!!!!!

So to answer Sharla's question about the National Geographic thing.
You go to the customize on the top right and then you go to the layout bar and add a gadget and then click on the feature and there will be the National Geographic thing which will be a add sign to the right. Then you will click the save button and it should go onto your blog where you want it. Have a good day!

The joy of music

It has been a lot of fun being back in a school band. I am in the symphonic band this semester and I really enjoy it. We have a concert this Friday. It should be a pretty good time. There are few of the pieces that are tougher than the others but I will give it my best shot. I will do the best I can to do my part well.
We are playing Imperatrix, Cahjun folk songs, hebrides suite, when the stars begin to fall, and another piece that is looney tune type of stuff.
Another thing that has been fun is that I am learning my scales better. I used to not know very many scales and now I know at least six of them. It is also fun learning about the transposing process.
Have a wonderful awesome day.

Two weekends ago I had the chance to go down hilling skiing for the first time. At first I went out and tried out the ski’s trying to figure them out. I did this for a while getting some help from others in my ward. I fell once doing this and I got upset, but I kept going. I then tried to do pizza wedge again and did a little better. The pizza wedge is something that helps you stop when you are skiing. It is making the skis look like a pizza without crossing them. I started talking with some people in my ward and they invited me to go on the lift. It was a fun and scary experience learning to ski. I fell down lots and lots. You get better at something by trying again and again. This is what I did. I was a little sore, but it was so worth it.

Words of Wisdom

The effect of our words and acts is tremendous in this world. Every moment of life you are changing to a degree the lives of the whole world. … So, it’s not the surroundings, it isn’t the positions; the thing that will influence [others] in this world, are personalities. No matter what you are people will feel and recognize this. You radiate, you can’t hide it. You may pretend something else, but that will not affect people.
