Happy National Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day!

How are y’all doing this fine Wednesday? I hope you’re all doing wonderful. πŸ™‚ I haven’t written a My Life Lately post in forever, so I thought it was about time for another one!

1. I’ve been trying to find new music! Unfortunately, it seems like you have to listen to fifty terrible songs before you find a one good song. If any of y’all have music suggestions, they will be greatly appreciated. πŸ™‚

2. I’m trying to get better at my cake decorating skills, so when we went over to a friend’s house, I made these little cupcakes to go with the burgers they made! πŸ˜€ What is your favorite cupcake flavor?

3. I’ve been working a lot harder on my recent envelope art! I have trouble focusing on my video lectures for school, and I found that doing something mindless with my hands really helps me focus, so I just work on envelope art during the lectures! πŸ˜€ What are some of your favorite ways to focus?

4. I finally started learning the guitar! πŸ˜€ I’ve been saying “I will learn that eventually” for what seems like forever, so I’m happy to be actually making progress! What is an instrument that you can play or want to learn to play?

5. I recently found some biographies about famous country music artists, and they are so cool! What are some of your favorite biographies? πŸ˜€

6. I’ve been learning to drive on our farm recently! Right now, I am too short to see over the steering wheel very well, so I have to sit on something. XD I’ve also been studying for my learner’s license test, which I may or may not be not doing so well on… XD

I hope y’all enjoyed seeing what I have been up to lately! Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! ❀

What have you been up to lately? Chocolate or caramel?

  1. Yay, these are some of my favorite posts you do!

    1. Ooh, music suggestions? *clears throat*
    1. “Show Yourself,” by Rise Up Children’s Choir (also basically all their other songs). This choir is AMAZING, and I especially like their YouTube music videos, but the Spotify versions are lovely too. πŸ™‚
    2. “Mask,” by Gwenivere. (Also Jacob’s Ladder!) Caroline is a friend of a friend, which makes her beautiful songs even more fun to listen to! The lyrics are great.
    3. “Story I Tell,” by Micah Tyler. This one’s quite energetic and fun. πŸ™‚
    4. “Virtuoso,” by David Phelps. I mostly like this one because I’m amazed how high he can sing! XD XD
    5. “Rainy Day Song,” by Andrew Combs. This is one of the most country-sounding songs on my playlist, heh, so I thought you might like the style of this one. πŸ™‚

    2. The cupcakes are adorable! Hee hee, those are great.

    3. I totally understand that – sometimes my mind will wander for something like that too, since it’s just using part of my focus. I like listening to quiet music or rainymood.com, or, yeah, doing art or coloring is a fun thing too!

    4. Ooh, that’s so exciting! I would theoretically like to learn the guitar, but I’m not sure I ever will because I’m pretty content with the piano right now. πŸ™‚ Also, I think the cello is beautiful, but I don’t really want to learn it. πŸ˜›

    5. I love biographies! I used to read a bunch of them, but now I can’t remember which ones… XD I really liked a small biography of Harriet Tubman that… I can’t remember the name of XD, and a fascinating sort-of-biography called “The Endless Steppe,” by Esther Hautzig.

    6. YAY! That’s so exciting! Heh heh, I hope you improve at your driving tests. πŸ˜› Go Laura!

      Aww! Thanks! They definitely took a long time. XDD

      Ohh! How long have you known how to play the piano? Ohh yes! Cello is so pretty!

      Ohh! I will have to check out that sort-of-biography! XDD

      YEP!! I’m super excited! πŸ˜€

      Thank you for that wonderful comment!! ❀

      1. YAY! You’re most welcome, dear!
        Hee hee, I’ll bet!
        Well I’ve been playing and/or taking lessons since I was nine, so… wow, ten years now! I love it. YES, it is!
        Heh heh. XD It’s great!
        You’re welcome, dear!

  2. If you are looking for some new songs, I recommend checking out Song Suffragettes (here’s the link to their youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/songsuffragettes ) their goal is to get more female country singers on the country radio. And you are likely to find an undiscovered artist there. πŸ˜€

    Also, that’s awesome that you are learning how to play the guitar. Currently I am learning how to play the ukulele and to play “The Wolven storm” on it.
