My Third WordPress Anniversary!

I’ve been on here for three years! I can’t believe it. 😀 In celebration, I wanted to reshare a few “third” things. Firstly, Seeds was my third post on this blog. Secondly, He Saves was my third poem.  Thirdly, Perseverance was my first photography type post.

I found this in my drafts from back in 2016 and thought I’d share for the occasion. I laughed at myself from 3 years ago. I don’t think I kept up with adding to it for the past two years. Hope you enjoy the humor!


Auto-correct and I have a very interesting relationship. Most of the time, it’s helpful and fixes my typos for me or suggests what I was trying to type when I really wreck the spelling of the word.

However, every once in a while, it turns against me and “fixes” something that wasn’t broken to start with; or I’m in a hurry, so I go ahead and choose the first word that it offers me without really reading it first. Whoops. I thought it might be fun to collect some of these mistakes that I caught and fixed before publishing and make a post about it. Some of them are really crazy. XD

From Follow Your Heart…?: “No, this isn’t about the song in Disney’s Mulligan soundtrack. XD” The movie has nothing to do with stew or golf; it’s Mulan.

From The Season for Grace review: “Their backstrokes were so touching.” This novel is set during the fall and winter. Nobody was swimming so elegantly that it was touching. No, it was their backstories that I found touching.

From The Liebster Award: “…Christian Dustpan Young Adult novel…” Uh, no. Just no. How would one even write a dustpan?  o_O I wrote the first draft of a Christian Dystopian Young Adult novel. (It also wanted to replace “Liebster” with “Lobster” or “Blister”, but I digress.)

From By Perseverance…: “Here is one of my favorite quotes by Charles Surgeon…” Charles was not in the medical field. It also tried to replace Spurgeon with Sturgeon; Charles was not a fish either. His name is Spurgeon. I’m actually quite surprised that autocorrect wasn’t familiar with his name. o_O

And speaking of the  o_O (the shotcut to get this emoji o_O ), Microsoft Word wanted to make my cringing face into an “odor” or an “oboe”. Please. That doesn’t even make sense.

Not even the Bible is exempt from the autocorrect’s clutches. In my post, Seeds, I quoted Matthew 13:3: “Behold, a sewer went forth to sow…” **bangs head on desk** Sower. A person who sows seeds. I thought sower was a known word, so I don’t have any idea where that one came from… Word can be so oblivious sometimes.  XD

And there we go. Hope you enjoyed my adventures with auto-correct. 🙂


Wow. I barely even remember writing this. XD

On another note, I’m working on posts for this week – finally getting back into posting a bit more often. I also looking forward to catching up with you all! ❤ I’m so behind in reading your posts. 😮

Snow Cat!

Snow Cat!

As I mentioned in a previous post, Snow!, I have been patiently waiting for the snow to become workable instead of a pretty powder. It’s all melted now, but two days ago, it was the perfect – or should I say, PURRfect – consistency, so I went a little overboard and almost froze my fingers off making this. This is what happens when I have an hour of uninterrupted time and workable snow. I probably took too many photos of it, but I was so excited, haha. I built it on the hood on my mom’s car. 😂 The nose is a piece of leaf, the mouth is a piece of grass, and the eyes are sunflower see shells that I found under our birdfeeder. 🙂

 

Fun With Flowers

As you probably already know, I love taking photos of flowers, and I have a ton of flowers in my archives. I’m a bit late responding to Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge – Fun or Flowers, but I thought I’d post these flowers that I’ve taken over the past few weeks and never got around to sharing anyway. 🙂

I found this one at my great aunt’s house. The plant is taller than I am!

These were growing wild around my grandma’s lake. They remind me of black-eyed Susan’s (at the end of the post – the sunflowers are first 😅), but the center isn’t black.

And this one was planted in a pot outside our bank.

Nature’s Smile

During a walk through the woods last spring, I saw a bunch of gumballs and pine cones and thought it might be fun to play with them. So this happened:

Don’t worry – be happy! 😂 And then I thought maybe it might like a branch for a hat:

A little while later, I found two dogwood blooms that I accidentally knocked off the tree. (Oops!)

And I decided to completely redesign the whole thing…

My dad said that this was the result of having too much time on my hands, but it was really nice to unwind on my stroll and let my creative side come out. 🙂
