Happy Fall to You All! 🙂

To tell you the truth, I actually don’t know when the first day of fall was/is…?!  My lame calendar doesn’t say. 😦  Oh well!

I hope everyone enjoyed their September while it lasted?!  I can’t believe next week it will be October!?!  Wow!  I apologize for not posting anything new or exciting lately…I’ve had a lot on my mind, but I am planning on posting some pretty cool pictures soon.  Anyway. 😉

Have a great rest of the week, and I hope the cool weather comes to you kindly.

GOD Bless!

So, since last night I have been busy drawing Anime pictures of characters from Hayao Miyazaki’s films…I haven’t drawn all of the ones I wanted to yet, but I thought I’d post a few finished ones.  (Note: None of them are colored in, so I guess they are not totally finished)  I love Anime movies SO much!  I’ll list my favorite ones that I highly recommend watching.  Enjoy. 🙂

‘Totoro’ from “My Neighbor Totoro”


‘Howl’ from “Howl’s Moving Castle”

‘Haru’ from “The Cat Returns”

‘Theru’ from “Tales From Earthsea”

‘Nausicaa and Teto’ (her Fox-Squirrel) from “Nausicaa and the Valley of the Wind”

‘Chihiro’ (and a cute mouse) from “Spirited Away”


That’s all I’ve drawn so far.  They were all fun to draw, and turned out pretty well.

Here are some of my favorites from Miyazaki:

Howl’s Moving Castle (I LOVE this movie!  It’s one of my personal favorites…Not too scary)

Spirited Away (This one is very good, very funny, and kind of creepy…)

Whisper of the Heart (This one is my all time favorite Anime movie!)

The Cat Returns (I like this movie a lot.  It’s really interesting and funny)

My Neighbor Totoro (This movie is just SO cute!  It’s definitely a good family movie)

Tales From Earthsea (This one I just saw for the first time a few days ago, and I really enjoyed it.  It’s a little creepy and shows some blood in a few parts…They are not all bloody, only some of the movies are)

Nausicaa and the Valley of the Wind (I really like this movie!  It is the first Anime I ever saw with any violence in it)

Castle in the Sky (This one is a little scary too.  Lots of guns in it.  But it is hilarious!)

Ponyo (Another family movie.  I love this one)

Kiki’s Delivery Service (An enjoyable one.  Not scary at all)

Arsene Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro (Okay…This is one of Miyazaki’s first movies.  It is good, and it is pretty funny, but there is some blood and cruel deaths in it, and also come cussing, which I don’t personally enjoy…)

Yeah, so those are some that I’ve seen and liked!  There are lots of others, and a bunch I haven’t seen yet.  Not all of them are violent, they are mainly just weird!  The stories are so interesting sometimes, and a lot of the stories are sweet. 🙂

I hope everyone’s week goes splendidly.  God Bless!


Fun Photo Day

The other day my sister and I had a dear friend over, and we had a small “Photo Shoot”!  The pictures turned out very pretty, but I’m not going to post any of them here.  (If you would like to see them, click here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/imjustpeoplewatching/

Now, for the main event!  I’ve been snooping around other photography blogs and cooking blogs, and today I felt very inspired to pull out my father’s beautiful Canon EOS REBEL T2i and snap a few shots*sigh*  (For those of you who are sitting there going “What the heck is that?!” It’s an amazing camera! 🙂 )

My sweet sister, Skylar, made the most incredible crepes I’ve ever seen or tasted!  And usually I am not the crepe kinda gal. 😉  But these were an exception…Enjoy!  (And for those of you who have never tasted a crepe, it is a very very thin pancake like thing with chocolate hazelnut Nutella.  And you can add fruit and whip cream to your hearts content!)

This isn’t a very good picture, but I like it!

One of those things that you might call Heaven On Earth…




And, the finished product!!!  Crepe A La Skylar~

Eli.  And Josh creeping in the background. 🙂

Yum!  First bite.

They were so crispy and good!

Johnny Blue!  We all at least had two each, but for a big, strong, growing boy, three is an exception. 🙂  Ha ha!


On to other things going on in the Barger House…

Some random shots.

This is our sweet kitty, Clay. 🙂  He just got home from my dad’s office (he had a severe break in his right arm, poor kitty).

As you can see here, Gracious wouldn’t look at me…Ugh!

Then when she FINALLY looked at me, she got a little too close.  Oh well!

Ah, music!

I’m learning some Jane Austen on the piano…A song from “Emma”

I got some new sunglasses at Walgreens.  What do ya think?!

Look at the blue inside!!



I’ve been trying to read a lot lately…So far I haven’t been doing a very good job! 😛  I did read The Hobbit (very good) and Little Women (wonderful book!).  And I’m reading Oliver Twist…(Interesting so far)

As you can see here, I’ve been reading some good poetry as well…It is a wonderful thing to read in a British accent! 😀


More Random Pics!

Oh, what a pretty sight.

Our last hydrangea in colorful bloom!  (A slight fuzzy picture, sorry)

This rose smelled amazing.

Which came first, the chicken or…

The egg??!!  Ha ha…(Sadly we had to throw these eggs away because we didn’t know how long they had been in the pen)


Mario and Sweet Boys…..

The boys got an awesome Super Mario poster the other day and they asked if I’d take a picture of it. 🙂

Awkward closeup on Eli…But SO cute!

And, an awkward, but cute, closeup on John.


I think that’s all I have to share…Oh wait (I almost forgot)!  You’ll never guess who paid us a visit…The TransFormers!!!  Bumblebee, Ironhide, and Optimus Prime…Enjoy the pics we got of them. 🙂

O. Prime & Ironhide

Bumblebee, or as we would say “Bumbleloo” or “Bubba Bee” 😉

Ironhide & Bumblebee

Ironhide & Bumblebee showing off some muscle!

Ironhide & O. Prime

Ironhide, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee.  (Behind the masks: Eli B. as O. Prime, John B. as Ironhide, and Cael B. as Bumblebee)

Well, there you have it!  (NOTE: These TF pictures were taken by Skylar Barger…Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SYLVIE! 😀  I tried to post this before 12am, on the 15th, but that didn’t happen…)

Have an amazing rest of the week, and pray for America!!

God Bless it!

Welcome Home, Lettie!

One…Happy Labor Day (late)!  I hope it was nice for everyone?!

Two…Happy September!  Wow!  It’s starting to get cold out.


We have a new member to our farm…Lettie, the sweet little English Setter puppy.  You know, I really don’t like dogs, but so far she has been the sweetest most well behaved thing.  Here are some pictures I took the other day…Enjoy!

She sleeps a lot!

Obviously, this is not Lettie.  This is John and my dear paper dragon “Professor Rotten-Bottom” 🙂


Well, I hope that this week is a nice chilly one for you all.  You don’t even know how excited I am to see the cool weather coming out from it’s hiding place!  Yay!

God Bless,
