Movies I've Watched Recently || T A G





I was tagged by Daminika for the Movies I've Watched Recently Tag.
So here we go.
M o v i e s   I' v e   m o s t   r e c e n t l y   w a t c h e d: 

Blue Bloods
For a modern TV show this is pretty 'clean' and 'conservative'.
So far I've watched seasons 1-5 
I was very disappointed tho to find they have made quite a few episodes
promoting gays.

The Magnificent Seven 1960


The Magnificent Seven 2016

I personally liked this remake better
than the original which is weird for me. :P

The Finest Hours

This movie was ok for a one time movie,
but not worth the money to buy.

Firewall


Little Women 1933

Love this movie!

well hope you all enjoyed!

Far Away Places//Bing Crosby Song



Marita

Far away places
with strange sounding names
Far away over the sea

Those far away places
with the strange sounding names are
Calling
Calling me
Goin' to China or maybe Siam
I wanna see for myself
Those far away places
I've been reading about in a
Book that I took from a shelf
I start getting' restless whenever
I hear the whistle of a train
I pray for the day I can get underway
And look for those castles in Spain
They call me a dreamer
Well maybe I am
But I know that I'm
burning to see those
Far away places with
the strange sounding names
Calling, calling me
Me

Stuck At Home//Whooping Cough//Life



Me this morning lol

Saturday I went along with Felicity and the rest of the bridal party dress shopping! I had fun and even shed a tear when I saw Felicity in a wedding gown and veil! That was a bittersweet moment.
It was a reminder of how fast things change and with something new there's always a goodbye of some sort.

Saturday night I stayed up late watching Answers in Genesis and listening to Ken Ham. I was really looking forward to going to church in the morning. I got up and showered as usual and was getting ready for church when Molly told us that August had/has whooping cough and that we couldn't leave the house. I was so disappointed that we had to miss Sunday services. We (the whole house) are on an antibiotic for whooping cough and cant leave the house for at least five days. So needless to say I've got a lot of time on my hands since we cant go to work. I have been catching up on a lot of reading and "studying" though I'm not in any classes I've been reading and watching a lot of science, astronomy and history (of the space age and all the different types of crafts they have made or attempted to make) books and movies and trying to catch up on years of schooling I've missed in science. Though there's a lot of different subjects like math that goes along with all that stuff also.



I woke up around 6:30 this morning due to coughing, I think I have whooping cough also. :(
I have coughing fits around bedtime and in the mornings.
Even though I woke up from coughing I wasn't feeling too bad and I had a relaxing quiet morning with a cup of coffee and friends snapping me on snap-chat, not to mention my sisters texting in the "sister group". :) Its almost lunchtime now and I'm still in my pajamas!
Probably going to spend the afternoon cleaning and organizing our bedroom. We are also making supper tonight so got to think about that.

I guess I have nothing else to say. I'll leave you with a few quotes. ;)

Random Pictures and Quotes

Here are some pics of my life mixed with random quotes. Sorry guys, most of my posts are probably going to be like this.
I find it easier to just quote people than to come up with my own words... πŸ˜›








View from Silver Star

Storm clouds somewhere in South Dakota







I can't believe this girl is getting married!! πŸ’–







SistersπŸ’œ




Auntie and niece πŸ’›






So I'm gonna make a confession, sometimes I pray for random people, actors, singers, politicians, a person I see in town or on the road. So when I saw this quote I loved it!


I don't remember when or where I took this...

The Blue Sky Tag

The Blue Sky Tag
Felicity tagged me for "The Blue Sky Tag". Thank you so much for tagging me!



The Rules:
Thank the person who tagged you
Answer the 11 questions
Tag 11 people
Give them 11 questions

Questions:

1. Do you prefer tea or coffee? And what kind? (black or with cream and sugar, herbal tea, lattes, etc.)
Coffee! With cream and sugar, sometimes I do enjoy a black cup of coffee, but mostly with cream and sugar or coffee creamer.

2. What is one childhood hobby that you wish you'd kept pursuing?
This ones hard... cant think of one. For a little while I collected stickers but not sure I wish I kept pursuing that. ;)


3. What is one book/verse from the Bible that has inspired you lately?
Psalm 63

4. What season of the year is your favorite, and why?
This is a hard one! I think I love each season the same. If I really had to choose it'd probably be summer. :)

5. Favorite childhood memory
Probably Marita and I at the ranch. we had two small whicker baskets that had handles and we played they were sunbonnets and we would pretend we were ladies living on the prairie, gathering flowers, "food" (rocks and grass), and making the woodshed into a home. we'd "sew" (tape) construction paper together and made clothes (that we actually wore!) and rugs and blankets for "our home".

6. What is your favorite way to relax and de-stress?
Watching science (fact or fiction) movies/documentaries or reading non-fiction books (all genres).

7. What quote/verse has inspired you the most, and why?
"Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established." Proverbs 16: 3
I've found that when I commit everything I do to God, no matter what it may be, my thoughts seem to be clear and positive. I'm happier and less stressed (easier said than done tho). It helps me stay focused on Jesus. My mom used to tell me that everything we do should be for God and not man.

8. What would you say is the hardest season that God has brought you through so far? Looking back, what did He teach you through that lesson?
I feel like I'm going through the hardest one right now, though I've been through a couple hard seasons, losing my mom etc. or maybe its all just one long season? I'm a slow learner but I'm learning to trust God in all areas of my life, big or small.  Learning that Jesus has to be my all and that even tho people and relationships change Jesus is always faithful.

9. Where would you like to be in 10 years?
Hopefully married.(!) If not married than hopefully working an interesting and fun job with a good income! :) And maybe can say I've been to at least three other countries! :P

10. What is your dream vacation?
Seeing as much as I can of the English Isles, Europe, Asia, Hawaii, and Canada! lol ;P

11. Why did you begin blogging?
I felt outta the loop! Hehe

I cant think of anyone to tag so guess if you haven't been you are now! same questions too. ;)
