Sketch Me More

Found this really cool application on my smart phone. It's called "Sketch Me More"... If you go to the application and then click on Gallery you can make any picture you have in your gallery look like this.. I thought it was really a lot of fun.. I printed it off and I'm in the process of using colored pencils to color it and then frame the picture.. It makes it look like one actually sketched it.. I guess I could leave it alone and just take a micro pen and draw outside the whole picture..Either way I think this application is so fun..  Course when people see this project I'm doing they ask me if I sketched it.. I can not lie,,I tell them No I got it from an application from my phone.
Yesterday it rained and of course it turned to ice and coming home from volunteering at school yesterday afternoon the driving was very slippery.. I took Ben to his Mama's house and I came right home. It got foggy and the road was a sheet of ice.. After driving school bus for 23 years I am quite familiar with driving on ice.  You have to go slow..
Ben told me yesterday he had his 2014 Resolution made..He was going to drink water and his muscles will get strong... He said GranAnnie ?  Next year I'll be able to carry you... I just chuckled and said Well, Ben I better lose some weight.. He is so funny , he just cracks me up.   He brought home the traveling Flat Stanley yesterday and he is all excited on what adventures he is going to take him on this week-end.. This morning he is playing a game on the WII game . Later we are going to the Cedar Rapids Library.  He said to make sure our phones are charged so his Mom and I can take lots of pictures to put into the book about his week-end with Flat Stanley..  Soo off we go~!
        My Romaine lettuce is getting taller.. Now I'm wondering if I should put any nutrients in the water while growing this lettuce.  It's looking good and getting so tall.. If you have any suggestions let me know if I should be putting something in the water to give it some nutrients.. I'm going to buy some celery today when I go to town and see how that grows.. It sure does give some bright green to the room on this wintery days.
     This year for my Resolution I chose the word "Joy"..
Not going to be too hard because I choose to be happy and be an encourager.  Sometimes I have a hard time when people this time of year say they are bored.. Oh my goodness just to be alive and be able to get out of bed is a blessing from God..  Sometimes when things happen in my life that is not pleasant I try to just turn them over to God.. sometimes that is very hard because I just like to turn it over and over in my mind  and it's just not good. Soooo I'm going to try harder this year to just let God handle these things.  If we just look back at all the things that have happened in our lives that we worried about and then realize that God had it handled all the time and it turned out for the good.. Or through that hardship God made it into a blessings.(If I had just realized how it would of turned out I wouldn't of had to worry so much)  I'm not much of a worrier ~~~when things happen I don't start asking what if ?  I just wait until it slaps me in the face and then I can take action. In the meantime I just think prayer is the answer.. 
     Well, you all have a Tiggeriffic Day~!  Ta Ta For Now from Iowa:)

Annie, how adorable that sketch app is and that Ben wants muscles so he can carry you! I haven't finished my lettuce yet, but when I do, I'm trying is as good for all of us as faith!...:)JP

That is a neat application. Pierce's resolution is to build a life sized Wall E. Might be a bit of a lofty goal, ha ha. He likes the Flat Stanley books too - he's read several of them.
