In which I make light of the situation...

Vine
A new app.

seven seconds.
shorter than a short film.

I had to give it a try.





My accent is not this strong. I promise.
I was being funny.








The timing is just a little off...but 15 tries was long enough.


Being a film maker is harder than it looks.
I actually don't think Vine will catch on like Instagram.
These things are work!


It did, however, make me giggle and smile all day.


“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.” ~Audrey Hepburn

  1. Oh.My.Goodness. That second video is hilarious. And I am so sorry about the snow. Way to find some humor in the midst of it.

    Vine. One more app I know nuthin' 'bout. I enjoy seeing my newlyweds' instragram pics on facebook, and sure would love videos, too, but it seems that the ease of Instagram has everything to do with its huge success.

    Happy Tuesday all,
    Di

    Hi Donna! I love the goat. I had seen it before, but it so applies to snow. I'm definitely ready for spring in Virginia. ~Andrea

    1. Andrea, at first I thought you meant to write "quote" not "goat..." Now I get it.

  4. Thank you giving me a laugh today, Donna! I had to go out at 8:30 this morning to shovel out my car. Four inches of snow with a crust of ice over the top. I sounded just like the goat!

    Have a great day!

    Oh, Donna. I am laughing! I was saying the same thing this morning as I was snowblowing the driveway in a blinding wind and a sub-zero wind chill. Ackkkkkk! Of course Mark is out of town today.

    That northern accent is quite strong...you would fit right in up here :).

    1. Why do these days always happen when husbands are out of town? I could write a very bizarre book about things that happened when my husband is gone (-:

  6. Have to find joy where you can!! We're getting the snow today... two days before Spring - ugh! Good news is it's a Snow Day from work and I'm going to sow my Baker Creek seeds that just came in the mail yesterday, so... Woohoo!!

    You put a smile on my face this morning and now I think maybe I can face doing laundry and cleaning house. What I would rather be doing is reading Bonhoeffer. ;-) I had to go back and look at the second video several times...goat---sheep...whatever it is so funny. Wish I could send you some of our sunshine. We broke the record here yesterday by one degree. It was 90, but today we were back to the 40's in the morning and 70's later in the day. We could use the moisture, but I think I would rather have rain than snow please. Spring will come and you will have those beautiful flowers with out of this world colors. It will come.

      Me too! I lie in bed and think it and sit in the dentist chair and pray it...so helpful to me. She called the whole thing her Bookmark which makes sense to me in my heart. Love all you folks still having the cold weather and thinking/praying warm thoughts for you. jep

  8. Donna, you made my day! I am so over this weather! I woke up this morning to snow and a 2 degree windchill! As I opened the blinds to see the snow falling this morning I said to my husband "What the crap" and he had a good laugh.

    I am puppy sitting for my daughter's 3 month old Goldendoodle today. Not a good day to be standing outside waiting for a puppy to do his business.

    Oh my, the sun is shining! Thank you Lord!

  9. As we patiently endure through the snow until the sweet arrival of spring...thanks for the laughs, Donna.
    Loved your videos!

    There she goes with the 'screaming goat' video again!! ;P A gal on the radio played a snippet of a 'cat bleating like a goat'...I giggled and thought of you driving to school today!!

    This morning when I woke up to 4 inches of snow howling and swirling around outside, not to mention -5 temp. ...I might have said "what the stinkin' heck" too! (first time this winter I have thought ...enough is enough!)

    XOXO

  16. You are so right! The little videos take thought and preparation!! But, I am enjoying Vine...I think. (Love the insertion of the screaming goat!)

    As a Texan, I've never used the OMSH phrase, so I must be honest and ask, what does it mean?? I mean, I can obviously figure it out, but is there background to it? Is it a common phrase for up there? How did it get started?

    If it makes you feel any better, by the time you are digging out of the snow and into a beautiful Spring that lasts a long and lovely time, I will be sweating buckets down here in the sweltering heat. I may ask you to pack up some of that snow and send it my way!
    Have a super day!

  17. No! OMSH is not common around here....it just came to my mind....and I went with it.

    I think it is just another way of saying gosh darn it.

    A blogger that works for Ree had a blog called OMSH.
    I always thought it sounded funny and once before I said it and it made my brother laugh....


    That's a good sign :o)
