Happy Birthday Sandy!

Today is BC Sandy’s birthday and I hope it brings TONS of fun and joy to you my friend. I Sooo enjoyed our walk and talk duet episode last Friday.

Flowers and a card which says Happy Birthday Sandy

Happy Birthday to you my friend. This decade is GREAT! and so are you. xoxoxoxox

In that episode I featured a birthday song for Sandy. You can hear it again here.



As part of our house beautification, Mark replanted our “Secret Garden” at the top of the stair. (Moi is a plant serial murderess who killed the prior garden with neglect. )
It made me Soooooo depressed to see these pitiful, poor dead plant victims every time I descended from my bedroom down into my day.I begged Mark for mercy and to teach me his wise ways of plant care.

Here is the wonderful result.

Here is the ‘secret garden’ located at the top of our stairs that sweetie Mark just recreated for me . Of note, this tiffany hanging lamp is my miracle lamp. I can’t remember If I told that story, but I will next show. Every time I see this lamp it reminds me to take action and ‘expect the impossible’.

A bonanza of potted plants

View of our ‘secret garden’ as you turn the stair corner and come up to the second story of our house.

Sooo glad the house cleaning is DONE DONE DONE Yaaaaaayyyyyyyyaaaaayyyy! I know, I know, the house will need cleaning again. Just like you can’t diet down to a certain weight, say “I’m done” and then pop right back to your old eating habits and issues without the weight popping right back up too, the house needs regular upkeep. For today though, “I’m DONE!” I literally can take a day off without turning my house into a mortifying dusty house of horrors again. BUT I am committed to “House Maintenance”.

Good thing we had a clean house too. Mark’s relatives gathered here yesterday prior to going to a family event. I was here part of the time, but had to bow out early for my voice acting class. Most of these relatives I had not ever met, and I was glad first impressions weren’t going to be framed by dust bunnies making it impossible to lay the baby down and junk laying around for kids and elders to trip over. One of the fun events of the day, is that I practiced my voice acting for the kids, and they laughed and felt I did well. I had them help me with my homework, by doing my parts in character and having the kids tell me when my voice was going ‘out of character’. They also enjoyed learning about animation scripts and laughed when I also practiced by watching some “Sponge Bob Square Pants” and imitating every character and sound that came on screen. (for voice placement practice).

Mark’s family went off to their event with Mark. I cleaned up the snacks he’d put out and went off to class.

Voice acting

I had so much fun, and improved a lot. Unfortunately, as I suspected, I can’t put these takes in the show, though I CAN possibly add them to a blog as separate example files. So I might let those of you regular blog readers hear one of my acting adventures in video game and animation in future.


REST DAY, Hallelujah!


How about you?

Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.

*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.

PS If you wish to sign up for email notification of blog postings and shows going live (not these status reports) enter your email where it says: “SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL”. This blog subscription widget is located to the right on computers and on some tablets, and below the posts on smart phones and on other types of tablets.

PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂

    WAHOOO, that sounds like a LOT of fun with the kiddos…

    Timing.. phew! Everything happens for a reason eh?? the house-cleaning? being in your blood, and lookie there, VWALAH! =-) glad it happened the way it did

    the bonus episode was fun.. I love that Sandy could validate for all your inquiring minds HA! about what REALLY goes on for your podcasting, tho, you know.. the question will always be.. does that REALLY go on, or was it all a front for Sandy, and so she could ‘validate’ that it does.. ha ha! sooo funny I am..

    im just kidding, and it doesn’t matter to me what REALLY goes on or not, I enjoy you and your show the way it is and well yah, not for me to judge or over-think or critisize anyway. ha.
