(Mocha mmmhmm)
Went to Las Paletas and to our surprise we received free Popsicles. Honor System. 
However, it is no Mary's Paleteria in Abilene, TX. Oh, Mary, oh oh oh... how I miss your mouth watering strawberries n' cream or your melon drinks. YUM!

Nathan and I spent the later part of the day in Nashville. I was having withdraws and craved the bustling side of Tennessee. It's no Chicago or Dallas but it will have to do. I love Nashville and it's one of the Top 5 cities I would like to move to, no matter what age I'm at. 

Top 5 Cities
1. Chicago 
2. Dallas
3. Nashville
4. St. Augustine 
5. Denver

After going to the Centennial Park for about an hour of taking pictures of geese, pigeons, and random things. We left to find Las Paletas. After being satisfied with our popsicles we drove around some more and I continued to take pictures. Next we plan to go to a sounds game. This will make up for us missing the Cubs game while we were in Chicago last year. I'm so excited. This game will be giving out t-shirt to the first 2,000 people that show up. Insert excitement here! 

I can't wait till I can replace my tire and fix any other minor details to my car and I can frequent Nashville on a more regular basis. Because there really isn't anything to do in Murfreesboro. Maybe, new things have popped up but have no interest to venture. 

On another note. I made my first and not the last meat loaf! It was so good and I was very surprised that it was sooo good. I have this app. on my phone that allows me to read different newspapers from across the country and one just happens to be from Chicago. I had been thinking about attempting to make meat loaf and one day the recipe popped up.

I even bought the yellow dish for this special event. 

I'm pleased to saw that August has been a fun filled event. Minus the days trapped in the apartment when it's 110 heat index or rainy days or just not wanting to venture out at all. It's been fun.

alive. well. ashamed.

So, I'm back on track && I'm about to make JoZoara my office like so many other people who need wi-fi. I'm embarrassed and I who the winner of my first giveaway an apology. Everything fell apart when my laptop broke. Along with that the weather has kept me indoors most of the time. Tennessee weather is the worst. I always feel like I've gained extra pounds once the humid touches my skin. 

Maybe blogging really isn't for me. I'm lazy, I procrastinate too much. Sometimes I think it would be fun to talk about clothing, art, and creative things I do. Then when I loss touch with the interwebz and go to work or visit friends I realize I never have time for this kind of thing. Then again there is this pull that has a hold on me. So, here I sit, on my balcony of the third floor apartment wondering "Can I really keep this up? Is there a point?" I think I'm just to scatter brained now to even keep up with myself. Meaning I over crowd my brain with to many things to do. 

Of course I am proud of myself, I have stayed off the computer for just about a month. Detaching myself, not on purpose, from online. No withdraws what so ever.

Here's a video.

Alas! Last Week Sucked.

Yes, last week was dreadful. Why? Well, my dear lap top fell off my bed after I got up to make a pot of coffee. Of course having it on the bed was not a wise choice but I always have there, best place for wi-fi.

Anyway, it might be sometime before I start posting videos, pictures, and etc. I'm kind of bummed about it. I hope my warranty covers it, will it? Le sigh...

A finished painting

I finished this painting sometime last night sometime before Nathan came home. I kept staring at the empty white face long enough. It was taunting me to dare to finish it, waiting to look over that wall. What is over that wall? I'm not sure, my own troubles and fears? Perhaps there is hope on the other side. The dead vines that sprawl up the wall have seemed to have attempted to get a pick but have failed. However this creature with a fresh face see's with curiosity. There also seems to be some concern but never fear something new might not be so bad.

The Art Institute of Tennessee keep calling me. I haven't answered it since Nathan and I were sitting at Discount Tire in Abilene. I'm kind of busy right now, getting a tire put on. Can we talk later?

I received a broacher the other day. Woulda. Coulda, Shoulda. You have the rough idea. We'll help you put it all together.

How? School seems so far away right now. What grants can I get or scholarships? It all seems grim.

Maybe I could talk with someone. Perhaps go to school there but it's so far away. Nashville is 30 miles from my home. Grr.

Don't forget! Tomorrow is the last to enter for my giveaway! ENTER HERE

I never question what to do, it tells me what to do. The photographs make themselves with my help. ~Ruth Bernhard
