Conversation about Cake

Matt: What are you doing?

Amariah: Eating a piece of cake. Why?

Matt: I thought you said you wanted to stop eating so many sweets.

Amariah: I do, that's why I'm eating this cake right now.

Matt: That doesn't make any sense.

Amariah: Yes it does. The Amariah of tomorrow is going to need to watch what she eats so I'm eating the last piece of cake now so she won't be tempted by it tomorrow.... "you're welcome future Amariah!"

A Conversation With Matt

Me: Hey, I think my car needs a new battery

Matt: I think so too. You better take it in.

Me: Can you take it in?

Matt: Why can't you do it?

Me: I'm a girl! I can't take my car in for a battery change.. that's a man's job!

Matt: All you do is drop it off and tell them it needs a new battery.

Me: No, I would rather you do it.

Matt: Why?

Me: Because they might try to cheat me since I'm a girl.

Matt: How?

Me: Well, what if they tell me I need two batteries? I'll probably believe it because I'm a girl and I don't know anything about cars.

Matt: You're right.. they might try to sell you blinker fluid too.

Me: Do you think I need blinker fluid?

Matt: You need something, but it's not blinker fluid.

Me: So you're going to take my car in, right?

Matt: I guess I can.

Me: When?

Matt: Whenever I can.

Me: I want you to do it right away. What if I go outside one morning and my car won't start?

Matt: Then you'll just need a jump and we can take it in.

Me: But what if the police or FBI are after me and I'm in a hurry!

Matt: Why would the police or FBI be after you?

Me: I don't know. Maybe I'm not who I say I am.

Matt: Who are you then?

Me: I'm Amariah.. but you don't know that for sure. Besides, I need to be prepared for anything!

Matt: You're unbelievable

Me: So when are you taking my car in??

Illustration Friday - Fast!

Illustration Friday time again. I haven't had any great ideas for the last few topics, but I came up with a drawing for this week's topic - fast. The original plan was to have this little guy tumbling down a hill but I was having problems with it. I think I'll hold off on that drawing until I know exactly what I want.
You might be wondering what is so 'fast' about this illustration... it's really just about how fast this month has gone by. October is my favorite time of year and it has flown by this year!

You Gotta Try This!

I found this really fantastic food blog called Culinary in the Country. One of the recipes is for Zucchini Maple bread - which I made on Saturday - and it is the best bread I've ever had. If you like maple at all you really need to try it. I didn't take a picture of the one I made, but here is their photo:

It's a little expensive to make because of the maple, but it's well worth it to use real maple syrup instead of the other stuff:)

Me, and Matt and Junie went to see Where the Wild Things Are on Saturday. I wasn't planning on going to see it because I thought it would be boring.... but, it was actually a good movie. The symbolism is probably over the heads of most kids though. And Junie liked it even though it made her cry at the end. Anywho, I think it's a great movie for adults!

The topic if "Flying" and yes, that is an MP3 player that she's holding.. probably listening to Bridge over Troubled Water ;)

Picture Time

I really look forward to this time of year. First, because I love Halloween. Second, I can get great pictures with all of the Fall colors. This year I decided to take each kid out individually, and then take them all out as a group. It's hard to get nice pictures when I take them all out because they argue and fight and get bored after about ten minutes. These are from the first set that I took of Junie.

'Hopefully' the weather will be nice enough to take Josh or Jalen out tomorrow..

A Purse Post

I've been lusting after these purses by Peace4You ever since I first saw them in April.

Unfortunately, I can't justify spending this much on a purse. Especially since I hardly ever leave the house except to get groceries and go to the gym. I'm not a big purse person anyways- I only have one and this is it:

The picture isn't great because Junie took it but you get the idea. What I like best about my purse is the large spherical metal thingy hanging from it that is perfect as a weapon. This is especially useful because of the perv-guy in our bowling league!
