Finally Finished This Thing

Finally Finished This Thing

***

Well, I finally finished painting this. It’s called a wooden spinner. I figured I should get it done, seeing how my daughter gave it to me for Christmas last year. It was fun to do, and took longer than I thought it would.

I first had to take it all apart to paint the individual wooden sticks, then let them dry. I thought I kept them in order, but must not have. It took awhile to get them arranged back like they needed to go. I think it turned out okay. 🙂

Photos show:

  • box the Wooden Spinner came in
  • Flat spinner after painting red, white, and blue (with yellow end parts)
  • Another view
  • Finished spinner arranged in a spiral, and hung by the window

Well, I didn’t know what to post about today, so I took a look way back in my time machine of post drafts to see what I could see.

Here’s some from the years 2014 & 2016.

Sometimes I just write stuff to remember, or to try to work something out in using the computer, and they are still sitting there. Some are kind of funny now that I look back.

All of these have been resolved – I figured out how to do it. Yay 🙂

Anybody else go searching the long ago drafts you’ve made?

MISSING!

It seems my ‘save’ and ‘preview’ tabs on here have gone missing. They were here earlier, now they are nowhere to be found.

Anybody have any ideas how to find them, I’d sure appreciate it! 🙂

Thanks!

xyz a picture for me

IMG_1539

ok that worked ok from download computer/camera pictures. now how do you save a picture from say, pixabay or somewhere ? I try it, it says it’s saved, but then where does it go on the computer pictures? I can’t find them to transfer them to here on the blog? I need to find out how!!!

This windows 10 is hard to figure out. I knew how to do it before they changed everything, and we didn’t want to , it just did it on it’s own 😦 boooo not funny…

Linda G. Hill hosts this monthly challenge. It’s just for fun. If you’d like to join in, all the details are at the above link. 🙂 Thanks, Linda!

I just missed posting for October, though I meant to. But, I did do a lot of coloring during the month, and these pictures are just a few of the ones I finished.

The first one shows two girls roller skating. They have pink pants with black knee pads, and blue and pink tie-dyed shirts.

The next photos are from a little booklet that tells how you should get along with dogs. I finished the whole book, of which there are many more pictures.

The dog photos show:

  • black & white dog behind a fence & some pink & blue flowers
  • brown & white Basset Hound in front of pink flowers/green leaves
  • brown & tan dog in front of two trees with multi-colored leaaves
  • reddish/brown mama dog with five nursing babies

I like the larger designs in these books, as I have trouble with the teeny tiny designs of other kinds of coloring books, and I get bored if it is a large picture. So these are just about right.

You can click photo to enlarge. 🙂

Happy Halloween – A Ballad for Jack

***

A Halloween Poem I wrote in 2015

***

A BALLAD FOR JACK

Out in the garden, way in the back,

A tangle of vines did grow.

There was a secret, hidden away,

For only me to know.

I watered and tended this special vine,

And, day by day it grew.

Soon, it revealed an orange orb…

I was the only one who knew.

I was so happy, I talked to it…

In fact, I named him Jack.

He grew up big and strong, that gourd…

I think he liked me back.

Then as the days grew cooler yet,

And, the sun was feeling dim,

I wanted Jack to stay with me,

But, it was time to part from him.

And, so it came, that sad, sad day…

Jack said it would be fine…

I took my knife and severed him…

I cut him from the vine.

I cried a river, but through my tears,

Jack looked at me and smiled…

He said to carve a great big grin,

For every little child.

And, so I did, I carved a face

For Jack’s big orange head.

Now, every Halloween night that comes,

Jack’s eyes shine bright, instead.
