Last week, I made a new doll video. I worked really hard on the background. I wanted to make it about planetary magic. The background will also serve as the night scenes for the doll video. I will then change the foreground in order to take the dolls to different places. The painting was made in a project board. They are all like super cheap right now because school is closed. No kid is working on a science project right now. I bought about 4 in order to make the backgrounds for my doll videos. I spent about 10 bucks...

I made two new Youtube videos. They chronicle my progress with the gardening nonsense and with my arty progress as well. I feel like an old fart around the edges. I wish folks would speak to me in a normal language, that I can understand. I never did bother to learn texting language.

My grandma had a little statuette of the fellow in the form of a mountain, with a creepy face. When she blew smoke on it, it would release a sugary...

Today, I went out a bit and got my hair done. It has been an eternity or two since I had the hair looking presentable. It is not due back for a couple of more months. The family has been seeing telenovelas a bit. The garden is looking a little bit more promising with the new sunflowers. The climbing vines, like the sunflowers were also grown from seeds. We might head out tomorrow, to see what life has in store for us, maybe. The day job thing is still a work in progress. The books are also progressing a little...
