Yes, I know what I said...

This is just an email announcing the transfer of my affections to my drawing blog.

This blog has been in existence for quite a while, so it's kinda' natural to be changing to it for now.

So, click on that link and pay The Misty Mountain a visit!


p.s. visit The Misty Mountain if you want to know what's up with me.

New Beginnings...and endings.

We're moving! No, I don't mean we're leaving the lovely state of Tennessee. I simply mean we are leaving this house:

In favor of another house. I'm going to miss this house....but new beginnings are coming!


Due to very limited internet access (and because we're busy) in the new house...this will probably be one of the last blog posts I will ever write. For a long time. A VERY LONG TIME. We will see what the future holds. I have enjoyed blogging...but....times change. Maybe someday I'll take it up again- if I have a good reason to blog.

And so now I bid you farewell.

"They are not long, the days of wine and roses,
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream."

Wonder of God's Creation: Halley's Comet

In my science course in school I have recently been studying comets. I am really really enjoying studying them. So far my favorite comet is Halley's Comet.


Predicted next perihelion: July 28, 2061
Orbital period: 75 years
Discovered: 1705
Last perihelion: February 9, 1986
Orbits: Sun
Discoverer: Edmond Halley

Isn't that so beautiful?

God is such an amazing designer! He is the PERFECT designer.

"When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,"
Psalm 8:3

Just a Quick Photo....

In Tennessee's recent snowfall I wrote : 'Craziness' in the frozen snow.


                           Then.....a few people who ironically are crazy started playing right  in front of the word I wrote in the snow! 
From left: Phillip C, Isaiah M, and I

Same here. Note the word 'craziness' in front of us.

We even look like we're acting crazy! (we were btw:)

The full view of the word: 'craziness'.

Me as the 'Snow Queen'. Everyone (including myself) put snow on my head.  

Isn't this a CRAZY post? :)


Happy Birthday, Ellie!

 Tennessee has had the biggest snowfall I've seen since we've been here. Here's a quick photo to demonstrate:

Tried to ride a bike in the snow...did not work.

Nice deep snow!

Hope you enjoyed the (very few) photos.
Have a wonderful winter.

Figura # 1 is turning 18!

Okay, this is scary.
In just a few days the oldest Figura child turns 18....I may be a little mistaken- but isn't 18 legal?? But anyway, this is SCARY. On January 19th Caleb will be 18.
