Last Post of This Year!

We'll this definitely isn't my first post of this year, but it will probably be my last! I am looking forward to a new year! I don't really have any resolutions for next year, only to watch my health a little bit more and to not  hurt myself. My stomach has been getting better and I am almost ready to get out of the house.
I have only gotten out of the house a couple of times since the end of June, but not too far and not for that long. The farthest that I have been these past couple of months has only been a few miles, I had to go to my heart doctor to go get a check up, which I think is about 10 miles away from my house, but other than that I haven't gone that far. I have been trying to get out of the house, but wasn't able to go that far. The farthest that I have been since September was the Toyota dealership to get my car's oil changed and my aunt's house to celebrate Christmas, which are only a couple of miles away from my house.
I have been feeling alot better these last couple of weeks and I am looking forward to a new year and better health. I think I pulled, or strained something in, or near my stomach, but I am feeling much better now and am hoping to get out more next year.
I am hoping this problem with my stomach will finally heal and I will finally be able to get out and go back to school and have some more interesting posts for y'all to read! I have been thinking more about my career paths again and have been thinking about changing my career path (Whatever my career path is, which I still don't know.) I hope to write more about that later in the year, but as for know, I don't know. I'll have to wait until my stomach gets better, before I can worry about school and work. I am hoping my stomach gets better before school starts in January, but maybe i'll have to wait until the summer, or maybe next semester!
Anyway, I am hoping for a good and prosperous year next year for me and for y'all! I hope to get out more and tell y'all more about school and things! I hope to see y"all next year, bye!

One Year Anniversary of my Matrix!

Today is the day that I got my Matrix. Last year on Dec. 26, 2012, my dad and me went to the Toyota dealership and bought my 11' Matrix. It had about 42,500 miles when my dad bought it and now it has about 54,500 miles! It still drives and looks great! Maybe just a few scratches... I'm not that great at parking.....

The Cat!

What do you know about the cat?

Season 1 coming soon!

Oh, Joy!

It looks like we are going to get some more warm temperatures again this week! Then we'll get some more cold early next week....

These are some pictures that I took of my houses back yard today. The morning was a little cold, but the high temperature supposedly got to 72 degrees during the afternoon. It felt a little warm/slightly cool. But it looks like we are going to get a few more warm days until another arctic cold front passes through and it becomes cold again. We may also get some severe storms later this week, so I am going to need to keep an eye on that!
I was watching the weather channel today and they said that east Texas is going to have a torcon of 5/10 when the severe storms pass through sometime Friday, Saturday, or early Sunday. So, I guess that means that Houston has a 50% chance of seeing a tornado! Uh-oh, that's not good! I hope that changes.
And here is a picture of the pile of leaves that I began raking today.

I haven't really gotten that far with it, I just put the leaves into piles.
Also Ah! What is that!

Are You Ready?

Are you ready for self driving cars? As I was scanning my Twitter wall, my eye caught a glimpse of a link to a video about Volvo's self driving cars. I decided to watch the video and was amazed at how well the car drove all on it's own. And as I was watching this video about Volvo's self driving cars, a thought came to me. Are we ready? Are we ready to have self driving cars driving on public roads?
Well this video makes it seem like we are. I am not sure how soon it will be before we start seeing self driving cars up for sale, but I think they are going to start selling them soon. Maybe within a couple of years.
I am ready! I am not against self driving cars, although I like to drive. I am supportive of them because of the safety self driving cars will bring to it's driver. They said that most accidents are caused by human error, so I think they will eliminate most accidents. I just hope they will prevent any computer errors. There is still alot of work to be done to prevent this, but it looks like they are making good progress. I do get tired of holding the steering wheel. And speaking of tired. I won't have to be worried about falling asleep and will be able to take longer trips in my car. Instead of getting stuck in traffic and honking on the horn, I will be asleep in my car, waiting for it to take me to my destination, or maybe reading a magazine, and if I get really bored, I can hook a playstation up and start playing racing games!
Anyway I thought it was interesting and I wanted to hear y'alls opinions on it. What do y'all think? Are you ready? Are you ready for self driving cars?

Looking Forward to Some Warmer Weather!

The weather forecasters are forecasting low temperatures in the 50's and highs in the 70's, possibly some 80's, this week! I am really looking forward to a nice long break from the cold that we got last week and I wish it would stay warm, but the weather forecasters are thinking that another arctic front is going to pass through on Friday. I am not sure how cold the temperatures are going to get, but with words like "arctic" I know that it is going to get cold again. I am hoping that it won't get that cold and that the cold will only last a couple of days, instead of a week, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
At least I get to enjoy some nice warm temps in the 70's, maybe 80's before the arctic front! Also NOAA forecasted a above average winter, so I am hoping we won't get too many of these arctic cold fronts, but they said that there is a possibility that they could be wrong, so I'll just have to hope.
Maybe if they are wrong and it gets cold enough, we might get some snow! That would be fun, but that's probably not going to happen!

Happy Thanksgiving 2013!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! I hope y'all had a happy Thanksgiving!

Tuesday, November 26, 2013


I am looking forward to sitting down and eating Thanksgiving dinner with my family and am looking forward to some warmer weather after Thanksgiving. I've had enough of this cold! I do enjoy the cold when it snows, but it's not going to and I've had enough of this cold, clouds, and rain! I can't wait until the temperatures warm back up.
The temperature is supposed to get back into the 50's and 70's on Sunday, or Monday. Also it is going to be sunny. I can't wait to see the sun! I haven't seen the sun in awhile. Even though it will be sunny tomorrow, it is supposed to going to be cold. Temperatures are forecasted to be almost freezing tomorrow morning and the high is only going to get into the high 40's, but at least. I will finally get to see the sun! I can't wait to see the sun! I wonder what it's been up to?
Hey has anybody noticed how bright the sun has been lately? I've noticed since the beginning of November the sun has been brighter, maybe because it is nearing the winter equinox, where the sun shines the strongest, or is directly overhead? I don't remember, but I've noticed that the sun is shinning brighter than it did before and I think the sun does this every year during this time of the year the sun seems to shine brighter.
My eyes always seem to be blinded every time that I look through my houses windows, where they didn't before November, so I think it has something to do with the winter equinox. I don't know, I was just wondering....
Anyway, I am really looking forward to eating Thanksgiving dinner with my family and I have had enough of this cold and I can't wait for it to get warm again.

Hoping For Some Possible Sleet Tuesday

I read on the NOAA weather report this morning that there is a slight chance of some sleet, or maybe snow for Houston on Tuesday and I am hoping to see some sleet, or snow. Houston has been getting alot of sleet, snow weather these past couple of years since 2008. Houston does have a climate for some possible snow every year, but Houston rarely gets to see any snow, or winter participation. The only time that I saw snow in Houston was back on Dec. 4, 2009, when Houston got an inch of snow. The only other time that I had seen Houston get any winter precipitation was a year before in Dec. 2008, when Houston got a winter mix of sleet and rain. We actually had a sleet and snow storm on the Christmas eve of 2004 in Houston. I would say it was my first white Christmas. Only about an half an inch, or less of  the sleet and snow had accumulated on the ground during Christmas eve when most of the sleet and snow fell. The sleet and snow were still on the leaves of the trees on Christmas morning, so I guess it counts as having a white Christmas. We also had a bad ice storm back in the mid 90's, either 1996, or maybe 1995. So Houston has gets some winter weather. Houston even has a annual snowfall average of .01 inches per year, last I checked.Houston hasn't had much winter precipitation since 2009. Only a few flurries and ice pellets in 2011 and 2012. I don't remember if Houston got a winter precipitation in 2010. I think some snow flurries, or sleet might have fallen in Houston in 2010, also.
I am hoping Houston will get it's annual .01 inches of snow this year too, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see!

Protect Your Pets!

Hi, I don't know if any of y'all read Scambusters, or have heard of this scam before, but I wanted to share it with y'all just in-case. As I told y'all before I get a email from Scambusters every Wednesday notifying me of the latest scams and yesterday I read about the worst scam ever. This scam involves stealing your pets! I think that's terrible that someone would steal your pet and then try and resale it. Luckily Simon is too afraid to go outside anyway, so I don't have to worry about him getting stolen.
I just wanted to tell y'all about this to make sure that if you let your pets outside to make sure that they are tagged and that if you are looking to buy a pet, to make sure that it is from a reliable source and not someone's stolen pet! That's horrible! Here's the link to the article if any of you want to read it.

Almost Over!

Our first arctic cold front just passed through, the temperature supposedly got into the mid 30's this morning, where I live, I haven't checked yet. Fall is almost over! Winter is almost here, just one month and twenty days away!
Not that it really matters over here in Houston, but I really don't like the winters over here because the temperatures make too many drastic changes, one day it is cold and then the next day it is warm, which is just really frustrating to deal with, make up your mind, warm, or cold. I really just wish it would stay warm. I can't wait for spring!

Shinning Angel

There was that view of a shinning angel, as Jerry biked down that path. Jerry was having a feeling for adventure that morning, before he left for school. That late sunny afternoon, after school was over, Jerry decided to pedal his bike towards downtown as fast as he could, he pedaled hard, faster and faster, not wanting to stop! Until he saw it again, saw that shinning angel, in her giant smiling face, looking down on all of the cities citizens, going to and fro about their business.
Jerry really liked the angel and enjoyed seeing it every time he ventured into town. He always wondered about it, but not much was ever said, not even his parents knew much about it, but then again Jerry didn't want to tell his parents that he'd been in downtown without them. "Your not supposed to ride your bike that far!" They would scold Jerry every time he would come home late from school. Jerry knew that he was going to get some scolding this time too, but he didn't care. He just wanted to stand by his angel, his giant smiling angel that stood in the center of town.

Happy Halloween 2013!

Happy Halloween!

So we  had a few kids come to our door. We gave out some peanut M&M's and I dressed up as Santa Claus! I'm not sure if they liked it.

Merry Christmas! Um....I mean happy Halloween!
Also my mom made caramel turtle brownies!

Howl's Eve

Watching the sun set, the guy ran towards his house, hoping to get inside, he knew that night was coming, and that the thing he dreaded the most would soon be here. He patted his calico cat as he was preparing to go inside, but just before he could get inside, a gust of wind blew and slammed the door to his house shut, his calico cat had just managed to slip inside, but the guy didn't make it in, he was alone, and couldn't find his house keys. As the guy was trying to sneak around to the back of his house, to see if the back door was open, he heard a growl and then another growl, the growl got louder as he got closer to the back of his house. The growl was coming from the trash can behind his house, the guy lifted the trash cans lid, it was him, the thing he dreaded the most, it was the neighborhood RACCOON! The guy started to panic, knocking frantically on his houses back door, his little sister saw him, and she opened the door, the guy ran inside, sweat all down his face, breathing heavily, he slammed his houses back door. The guys little sister looked puzzled, but she knew, they all knew....

The evening will be quiet, there will be no noise,
all the children will be standing still, by their window sill,
waiting for night to fall, they will all have a ball.
Putting on costumes, putting up decorations, and finding the right candy bowls,
before sun fall, when the children will all be out, with their costumes that will make their neighbors filled with freight,
their eyes will be searching for the nearest house that will fill their taste buds with delight,
children will be screaming, laughing, and playing in the streets that night, the night of Halloween!

So Much For Saving The Trees

Since finding out that our trees have not gotten enough water and having seen two oak trees fall down last year, I have been trying to save the last remaining trees that are still left. I have been trying to water them at least three times per week with just a sprinkle of water. I only gave them a sprinkle of water because I didn't want to put too much at once and have them fall over, like the two oak trees that fell over in the front yard last year. The oak trees fell over because there base is shallow and when Houston had that drought in 2011 and then got all that rain in 2012, the oak trees couldn't take all of the water at once, so they fell over.
So now I have been trying to save the trees that are left, but it seems like I am too late and that they are already starting to fall over. It looks like some of them might fall over tonight, or this coming week. We are supposed to get alot of rain, maybe 2 inches this week, plus with the wind. I saw a small tree branch fall today off of a tree from just maybe 20 mph wind gusts. That wasn't much and if we get a strong 50, or 60 ph wind gust they will probably all fall over. They all look bent.
I don't know what to do to save the trees in my houses yard. I looked up on ways to save trees on the internet at a east Texas gardening website (http://easttexasgardening.tamu.edu) and they told me that I needed to water the trees not at the base of the tree, but that I needed to water the trees at the ends of their branches that are not near the trunk. That's pretty far up! How am I supposed to reach that high? And also these trees are pretty old, maybe more than 50 years old and they told me that I would need to water them with probably 2,250 gallons of water, if they are that old and my math is correct. That is alot of water! And I can't stand there and water all of those trees. I think we may need to cut them all down. I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions?

The above pictures are of the branch that fell off of one of the oak trees in my houses back yard.

Not Sure What to Say

I've been feeling pretty sorrowful these past couple of months, not being able to get out more than a mile away from my house has put me in a pretty sorrowful mood, but these last couple of weeks, to my surprise since the beginning of September, I have been getting better and have begun walking and driving, although I haven't been able to drive that far yet, just around my neighborhood, but I think I will be able to start driving out of my neighborhood soon, I hope, but at least I am starting to feel better.
I have been able to walk around my house and back yard with alot more ease. Thinking about how I have not been able to walk much, or drive has made me pretty sorrowful, but I am happy to say that I am getting better and hope to be better soon.

I Made a Veggie Burger Today

It's a Five Guys style veggie burger! It is just a burger with all of the veggies, but without the meat.I found some left over English Muffins and then put melted American cheese, pickles, mayonnaise, lettuce, ketchup, and mustard, in between the two English muffins. It was good, it tasted just like a Five Guys veggie burger, sort of.

The Cat's Shadow

It was early morning just before sunrise, when Jeremy decided to take the trash out early. He didn't want to have to get up early when the sun was up and then go back to sleep. Jeremy wasn't very good at going back to sleep when the sun was up, once the sun was up he was up. Unlike his older brother who would stay up all night and sleep during the day.
But this night Jeremy had stayed up late and it was only a couple of hours until sunrise. Even though it was night, Jeremy wasn't scared, but was delighted. The season's first fall cold front had just passed through and Jeremy was enjoying the cool, calm air.
In this cool, calm air, Jeremy walked happily along pulling the trash can down his houses driveway. There was no one to be found, not a sound, nor a sight of any living thing. That's when Jeremy's imagination started to grow wild. "Where, what, was that?" He thought to himself. Jeremy's imagination was starting to make Jeremy see every creepy thing he could dream of, out of the shadows of the trees, buildings, and things that were around him.
"Did I just see a ghost?" "No!" He, thought. "That was just a plant...or was it?" Jeremy turned his scared head towards his houses front door. His eye caught a glimpse of a glaring jack o' lantern. "Ahh!" He shrieked. Then breathed a sigh. "Oh right that's just a carved out pumpkin that my brother made." Muttered Jeremy to himself. "I better get inside"
But as Jeremy was about to go inside, he started to see two, three, four, maybe five Jack o' lanterns and they all seemed to be coming right after him. Jeremy started to feel alone and scared. He wanted to run, but he didn't know where to run to. "Over here!" Something yelled in the distance. But Jeremy couldn't tell who it was. All he could see was a black shadow and it was running away fast.
He started to run after it, hoping it was a way out. Once while he was running, Jeremy decided to look up and he saw green eyes staring intently at him. "Green eyes?" "What could it mean?" "Who is it that I am following." thought Jeremy. But Jeremy didn't have time to think, he had to run, the jack o' lanterns were getting closer. The shadow jumped into a dark hole, and so did Jeremy, the jack o' lanterns right behind them, but the shadow closed the door, before the jack o' lanterns could get inside.
Now just Jeremy and a green eyed shadow were sitting alone in a deep dark hole. Jeremy was nervous and getting scared. The green eyed shadow flipped a switch and a bright orange bulb was shown, in the middle, close to Jeremy's face. Jeremy flinched, he saw what the green eyed shadow really was. It was a black cat.
"Don't be afraid, it's just me." said the black cat
"Yes, I've come to save you, you are in grave danger."
"In danger?" "In danger from what?" "Where are we?" "Why were those jack o' lanterns after me?"
"You ask too many questions." "I will will let you know, when the time is right, good bye for now." The light turned off and Charcoal disappeared.
"Wait,wait!" Yelled Jeremy.
"Wait?" "Wait, for what?" Said Jeremy's older brother.
Jeremy confused, started to open his eyes, feeling relieved that he was in his room.
"Did you stay up late watching "Night of The Jack O' Lanterns" again?
"Come, on your supposed to take the trash out."
"Right..." Said Jeremy.
"Hey where's Charcoal?" "Have you seen him?"
"No...?" Said Jeremy
"Charcoal, Charcoal" Yelled Jeremy's older brother
Charcoal came running up the stairs and into Jeremy's bedroom.
"I guess i'll go take the trash out." said Jeremy as he jumped off of his bed and ran out of his bedrooms door, but before Jeremy ran out of his bedroom, he paused and caught the eye of Charcoal, Charcoal stared back, his green eyes staring intently at Jeremy.
"Don't forget, you must remember."
"Problem?" Asked Jeremy's older brother.
"Oh...no, no problem." Stuttered Jeremy as Charcoal then started to rub his head against his older brothers legs, purring loudly.
"Well then get to it!" Yelled Jeremy's older brother.
"Right!" And Jeremy ran out of his houses front door.

Things That I've Been Thinking About Lately

I spend alot of my time thinking rather than talking. People always say that I am quiet, although I never really thought of myself as quiet. I'm just not that much of a talker. I enjoy thinking more than I enjoy talking.
Since I haven't been able to get out much recently. I have been spending most of my time thinking about things, like what I want to do with my life, and places that I want to go. There have been alot of different career paths that I've wanted to pursue since I graduated high school a couple of years ago. At first I wanted to be a race car driver, but that was probably never going to work out. Then I wanted to work with animals, but I couldn't think of anything that I wanted to do with them except be a vet tech, but then I realized that I didn't want to have to inject the animals with needles and that I wasn't really going to enjoy being a vet tech if that's what I had to do.
I also wanted to become a meteorologist because I love weather and looking at the weather maps and things, but then I learned that meteorologist use calculus to make their weather predictions and I am very terrible at math. I barely passed algebra and didn't enjoy it much, but I think that's because everything was taught too fast and I wasn't ever able to keep up. So I decided that I might not want to be a meteorologist, but just study weather for fun, on my own time.
Now I am working towards getting my associates degree in horticulture. Which is what my mom decided that I should do since I like both weather and animals. And plants involve both weather to survive and animals need the plants to survive. I thought I would enjoy taking care of peoples plants. Although I am worried about the chemistry classes that I am going to have to take. Which I am worse at than I am with math.
I enjoy helping people and I enjoy writing. I kind of want to be a journalist, but I don't know. There are alot of writers out there and I don't know how good I am at it, but I think I would enjoy being a journalist, writing for a magazine, or newspaper, but I don't know.
So, that's what I've been thinking about lately.

Under The Cats Eye

One of my favorite books about a boy at a boarding school that finds a cat that is from another world and he tries to save her. I don't want to say anything more than that except that it is a awesome book and that you should read it! It is one of my favorite animal books that involves a cat and a dog, but the cat is one of the main characters. Which is why I thought it would be a good book share on Cat Thursday.
But it is really a good book for anybody that loves animals. A good read if you haven't read it, you should check it out!

Here's a story inspired by the 70's movie that I watched on YouTtube yesterday called "Two-Lane Blacktop" I do not understand the 70's!

"Peace!" She said as she got on to the bus that was going to her supposed college. Her parents were really happy for her, but her siblings were worried. They didn't think that she was really going to college. She had hardly packed anything and was talking about wanting to travel across the country. Had she lied to their parents? Were was she actually going?
The bus dropped her off at a bus station at the next town. Once she got off, she held her thump up. A universal sign that she wanted to hitch a ride. A huge white dry van pulled over. She felt the cold steel bar as she climbed in, there were refrigeration stickers all over.
"Where you headed?" Asked the driver.
"Up north" She said. The driver just nodded.
"Well, i'm going into the next town to deliver, you can ride with me if you want."
"Sure." She shrugged.
Once the dry van stopped, she searched for another car. An old couple just walked into the grocery store.
"Nope" She thought.
Just then Mr sunshades walked out of his Firebird, went to the soda machine and grabbed a cola.
"Cool!" She thought and then snuck into the back of his machine. Mr sunshades acted like he didn't even notice, but he did.
"Hi!" He said, looking kind of irritated, but he knew the rules.
So he let her ride with him. After about an hour it got dark and Mr sunshades wanted to go to a motel.
The girl thought that she should get out and rest, then find another ride.
Mr sunshades offered her some drugs, but she wasn't into it and was starting to get worried. She had only been gone for a day and she was starting to get homesick.
Home was now a thousand miles away and she didn't want to let her parents know that she had been lying to them, so she sent them a postcard and decided to just keep on hitching and hitching from place to place, year after year not knowing where she was going, or what she was doing. She just didn't want to go home.
Her parents not seeing her, or getting a post card, began to worry. But she never returned home, but just kept on traveling and traveling from place to place, searching for something she didn't know. She just didn't want to stay in one place, or with the same people for long. She just wanted to keep on moving.

Homemade Pizza Bread Pizzas

Here's a picture of the pizza bread pizzas that my mom made the other day, but these pizzas are a little bit different. There are not made with English muffins, but with just regular sandwich bread. Admittedly, I wasn't very excited about the switch at first, but they actually tasted good with the regular sandwich bread. 
My mom first toasted the bread then melted some thin slices of butter on them. After that she put the sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and black olives, then she heated them back up, to melt the cheese and sauce. I thought they tasted good, maybe even better than the English muffin pizzas.

Homemade Vegetable Rice

On Saturday my mom made some veggie rice for dinner. She cooked white rice with soy sauce to brown the rice then she added the fried vegetables and eggs. I think she also put some spaghetti noodles in it. The vegetables that she put in were soybeans, carrots, and maybe some onions and mushrooms. I don't know, i'm not sure. I'll have to ask her.

Getting Some More Isolated Storms Today

Got some more isolated showers and thunderstorms today from a cold front and maybe a spinning low. The weather forecasters said that we might get our first real fall cold front next weekend. I'm looking forward to it!

Closing The Closet

As she was going to bed, she could her voices screaming, from down the stairs. Her baby brother was having a fight with her dad again about wanting to stay up late, so that he could watch his favorite TV show. "But it's only just this once!" Screamed her baby brother.
"Ok, just this once." Said the father.

Letter to Myself

September 24, 2013

Tear drops of joy fell down my face when heavy rain was falling down outside of my house last Friday. I had been much anticipating the rain fall all week and was really glad to see it, just as the weather forecasters had predicted. I think at least five inches of rain fell in and around Houston, TX. I had tears of joy, seeing all that heavy rain, hour after hour. Sometimes getting distracted by other things, but my mind was always on the rain, I watched it fall outside of my houses windows. Steadily, ever so steadily until it stopped at around 10 pm.
There didn't look to be any flooding, or storm damage from what I could see, after the rain stopped, maybe just the usual common puddles, or over flowing ditch that is always flooded after every storm, but nothing drastic though. There were some reports of bad flooding in and around Houston, but, not in my area.
My area usually doesn't get any major flooding, except for one time when my area got fifteen inches of rain from a train of heavy thunderstorms that pounded all through the night. There is a bayou right next to our house that usually helps stop water from over flowing into our streets, but this time the water over flowed over the bayou and spilled into my neighborhoods streets and came up to some of our neighbors houses and flooded them. It wasn't a terrible flood, just maybe a couple of inches. I think I got to miss school and I think it was a Friday, so I had a nice three day weekend. But no flooding this time around. Which is good, besides I'm not going to school anymore anyway, so it wouldn't of mattered. I don't like flooding, but I'll have to admit it was interesting to see. It's just I've never seen my neighborhood flood before.
All of this flooding reminds me of what's been going on in Colorado. My dad, aunt, and I had just been to Colorado and I remember my dad making a remark about not wanting to live there, down in the valleys because he was afraid that it would flood, but I think my aunt and I were both thinking that, that would never happen. That's very weird that it did happen and I feel really sorry for all of the people that had lost their homes.
Thinking about Colorado and flooding, I had wondered if they don't regularly get flooding due to all of their annual snowfall. I would think all of that snow on the mountains would pile up and melt down into the valleys each year, but then I guess people wouldn't have built houses and lived there, or maybe they would. I don't know.
Well, it looks like we are going to be getting some more rain this weekend. It looks like pretty much the same set up as last week, but with less chances for rain. I hope that I will get to see some more heavy rain like last week, but for now, i'll just enjoy this nice sun.
