  1. This post was so fun!! You definitely have more things going on over there, than my family does! πŸ˜‚
    The only “big” thing that I think happened in January for us was that my sisters lost their jobs.
    I watched all your latest videos, and I really, really enjoyed them. You are so creative! Especially with that “Create This Book” book.
    With the book “Hostage” does it have dialogue, or is it just mainly facts and kind of like a documentary type thing? ‘Cause I’m thinking of getting it, but I like books that have dialogue, and not just someone just telling the plain facts…does that make sense?

    • Thanks!!
      Oh, that’s sad. I’m sorry that happened.πŸ˜•
      Yay, thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed them! πŸ˜€
      Yeah, that makes sense! Yes, there is a lot of dialogue, and story line in Hostage. I think it has a goof mix of that, and the documentary type style you talked about. It’s a very interesting read! I just finished reading it aloud to my sisters, and they enjoyed it too. πŸ™‚ Had you heard of it before I mentioned it?
      Thanks so much for your comment! I LOVE long comments!πŸ˜„β€οΈ

  5. This was SUCH a fun post, thanks for sharing, Rosy!! I LOVED your photos of the stars!! What did you use (like, camera, or phone?) and if it was a camera, do you know what settings? I really love hearing how different people do photos of the night sky. πŸ™‚ Hope you’re staying well. ❀

        • Haha! I agree that spicier is better. ;P But we wanted all my siblings to be able to eat it, and some of them don’t like spicy. We still do buy spicy salsas though.πŸ˜„

          You’re welcome! I enjoyed reading your last few posts. Just a random thought, but maybe if you tried just posted once or twice a week, you wouldn’t run out of ideas and get uninspired so easily…? Just a thought!πŸ˜‰

          • Oh!! That makes sense!

            It’s not exactly running out of ideas or getting uninspired. It’s just the wondering if any of it is beneficial, upbuilding, does it direct people to the Lord, or am I just just rambling and make no sense… and then I just get tired and want to delete it lol…

              • It really helps!! I thrive on feedback. And the blog gets quiet and I begin to wonder what’s up…

                I’ve got uninspired and stuff like that. But never so badly discouraged against blogging itself.
