Karma must have been awfully tired, too.
She fell asleep pawing the side of her bed and didn't even notice me walk up to take a picture. Out like a light! ;)
I slept for 8 hours during the afternoon and evening. Forgot about the dehydrator. The raspberries are dry as a bone. Little crunchy sour balls--LOL! Still taste okay, though.
But the "raisins"...well half of them were nice and dry like we'd like them, but the other tray wasn't. So, I have put them back in for a while and also added in the apple crisps which weren't crispy enough for us. In fact, I need to check them as soon as I am done posting.
Leah read that the degree of moisture left whatever you dry, after you store it that moisture will distribute evenly in the container. So, some of the apple crisps were nice and dry and crunchy. But after I stored them, they all became moister and were no longer crunchy. So this dehydrating business is a bit tricky. We'll get the hang of it, I'm sure.
During the night I worked on the next two-page spread in my art journal. First I wet the pages and used some watercolors. Really buckles!
I let that dry.
Then I found my Mod Podge, added a couple pieces of green tissue paper, and let that dry.
I decided to fill my bottles of Radiant Rain sprays so they would have a deeper color. (You kind of mix your own with water.) I used the bare branched trees mask this time. On the left page I used walnut ink spray and on the right page I used some Bamboo Green Radiant Rain spray. My bottles haven't been used for a long time, were kind of cloggy, and I wasn't sure where I was spraying--LOL! Got green shiny mist all over my left hand. :)
Anyways, that is drying right now.
I don't know what I am doing, but this is fun!! :):)
Yesterday I slept from 12:30-8:30pm, but I'm not sure I'll last till noon today. We'll see. When I am tired enough, I am off to lalaland...don't care what time it is. ;)
What I am doing right now...well, before I deleted them from my recordings I rewatched the Nova program on string theory and I am now rewatching "The Fabric of The Cosmos: The Illusion of Time." I have to let these theories sink in a bit to get my head wrapped around them the best I am able. Fascinating stuff!
Have you ever had dreams of other time periods?
I've had them all my life. But the past maybe ten years or less I have started to have what I call "time jumping" dreams. Like say I am dreaming I am riding in a car and suddenly I am riding on a horse drawn cart in another time period with other people. I never find this unusual while I am dreaming--LOL! For some reason the time jumping usually happens when I am moving--walking, riding in/on something, or driving.
Do you ever have a sense that somebody in a dream from another lifetime is actually somebody you know in your present life? Even if they don't look the same? Or really reminds you of somebody you know?
Or have you dreamt about something that actually happened later?
Do you fly? Or have any other skills you don't have in real life?
I dream about being able to just run, leap, and kind of float-fly. Dreamt that since I was a kid. But when I got up over the trees I would start to fall to earth (remember I am afraid of heights?) and I'd get that horrible falling sensation and wake up. A few years ago I suddenly learned how to land. ?? Haven't had flying dreams since then...not that I can remember anyways. And I have often dreamt about being able to read people's thoughts and/or just have knowledge about what they really feel. Hard to explain. Kind of like soul knowledge.
Anyways, I was just thinking about the time jumping dreams and all of this while watching Nova because they're talking about how time could be all right there--past, present, and future. It often is when I dream. :)
Absolutely fascinating stuff!!
Well, got to go check the raisins and apple chips.
Have a good Saturday and sweet, interesting dreams!! :):)
