Hello Friends,

Here is a silly puffer fish I drew quite a while back.  I don’t think I ever posted it, but if it’s a repeat, sorry!  I drew it in ink which was fun.  I tried to upload another drawing I did, but again, we are having slow internet problems with the rain that came in today.

Fortunately, I think my husband and I are all well from that flu bug.  From what I understand it could have been a lot worse.  I am thankful it only lasted a week!  He still has the cough, but mine is pretty much gone.

I finished my fifth assignment for my writing class today and sent it in.  So that is good!  I am glad to be done with it.  The first part was to write a physical description of a kid.  The second part was to write my character’s thoughts.  I chose to do a monologue about a teen-aged girl who can’t understand why people think it’s weird that she is a “cutter.”  If you have never heard of that before, it is a psychological disorder that some kids and adults have where they much cut themselves in an effort to r

I have been doing a lot of reading of young adult fiction lately.  I picked up the first book in a three-book series by Orson Scott Card a few weeks ago.  I am almost done with the first book, “Pathfinder.”  Wow!  I have NEVER read science fiction before, but this is truly incredible!  I have hardly been able to put it down.  His sense of humor is refreshing, too.  I went to town yesterday for a routine doctor’s appointment and checked out the second book.  I am hoping to finish the first one by tomorrow.  So for now, I am going to get back to reading!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: Thanks for visiting! :)

  3. That’s a great picture of a puffer fish, Patsy! My elder daughter used to self-harm by cutting her arms when she was a teenager. When I asked how she got the cuts she said she tried to get through a hedge and was scratched by thorns! She was being bullied at school and suffered from depression. I hadn’t realised she was so troubled as she kept it all to herself. She has been diagnosed as having bi-polar disorder and though she has recently stopped taking her medication because of the side-effects she is managing to keep herself fairly well now. I still worry about her all the time.


  4. Patsy, that’s an interesting take on Assignment #5. Cutting is a subject that probably needs more exposure. I’ll be interested to hear what your instructor says about it. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks Tiffany. Yes, my daughter has a friend who did it for a while but I am pretty sure she doesn’t anymore. I never would have guessed it either, because she always seems so happy, but she has had a pretty rough childhood.


  5. I’m happy to hear you finished the assignment, Patsy. Nice job!
