Testing and Tornadoes

     I . . . am . . .tired.  Okay after a normal day of school, I am tired but testing really wears you out.  Walking in circles and reading in a robot voice is not fun.  Apparently I am also brain dead.  Or so you would think.  I got home on Friday after three days of this and thought I would splash some cold water on my face so I could make it through dinner without falling asleep.  Good idea.  Except I really should have thought about taking off my glasses first!  Then I got ready to put some creamer into my hot chocolate.  I shook it up - like always - except I usually put the lid on it.  Oh my.  My brother may be ready to cart me off to the "funny farm".  I perhaps will recover! 
     Then there is the weather of the last few days.  Since staying with my grandmother a lot as a child, I have had to work hard to overcome some storm anxiety.  But let the weather be like it has been for the last few days - the mention of tornadoes and severe storms . . . my overcoming goes sort of out the window.  Hopefully that is now over for awhile.  They missed my area, but were very close. 
     Every Inchie Monday's word was implausible.  This was a very tough assignment.  But what is more unrealistic and unlikely than a flying pig?
     It seems implausible, but after over 100 Diva challenges, I actually did not get one up on time.  Yes, it did drive me nuts, but I had to spend the weekend and a few evenings working on the book submissions I told you about last post.  But even if it wasn't on time, I decided to post it anyway.  So here is Diva's challenge for Earth Day.  He turned out so cute I had to share.
     Now for this week's challenge.  We had to use the tangle "Camelia".  I think it is a very pretty tangle, but until now I hadn't used it very much.  It never seemed to fit where I needed it.  After playing with it a bit, I may have to work harder to find a place to use it. 
      Now if I could only find time and inspiration to finish the couple of journal pages I am behind in.  Maybe this week-end.  We will see.
      Thank you for dropping by and visiting.  Leave me some much needed sunshine!
