An Anime & My Project Green….

I spent last weekend avoiding organizing my room and my craft. I thought why not watch a new anime movie as I work on my green project. 

Crochet Chevron, Ripple, Zig Zag, Wave – Blanket Pattern & Tutorial

Jayda InStitches  Hi Everyone!  Let’s finish those granny square blankets with a nice simple border!  If you’re a beginner, than this is the tutorial for you! * Granny Square Tutorial –

I stuck to the pattern mostly. Crocheting is like cooking. The pattern can be changed and the stitches still come out looking good.

A whisker Away: 10 Things You Need To Know About Netflix’s  Anime Movie.

Here are 10 facts worth knowing about A Whisker Away, Netflix’s 2020 anime movie. BY LISA DE LA CRUZ  PUBLISHED JUN 17, 2020

I chose this movie, because I love cats. I enjoyed watching it, but
I did more watching then I did crocheting. Was worth it…

I was still looking for nonviolent  anime and I remembered watching “fireworks,” but couldn’t recall the story line.

Fireworks (2017 film) – Wikipedia › wiki › Fireworks_(2017_film)

Watch from the Side?”, also known as Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom?) is a 2017 Japanese animated romance film based on Shunji Iwai’s live-action television film of the same name.

I wished I remembered I didn’t care for this movie. Now that I think about it, that should have warned me not to watch it. Now today I kept my word and got to do a little organization.

I had started looking at how other people organized their yarn and thought this would be a cool idea for me. My first thought was to go big, but my bank account said “start small.”

I was thrilled when I finally got it built and organized. 1 & 4 is yarn, 2 is cross stitch & craft books, and 3 is my next 2 crochet projects. (Unless someone request something for me to make for them)

Today I awoke bored and came across “Aya to Majo,” an anime movie.

Earwig and the Witch PG 2020 ‧ Animation/Fantasy ‧ 1h 22m

Earwig and the Witch – Wikipedia › wiki › Earwig_and_the_Witch

$210,071. Earwig and the Witch (Japanese: アーヤと魔女, Hepburn: Āya to Majo, lit. “Āya and the Witch”) is a Japanese computer-animated fantasy film directed by Gorō Miyazaki, and is based on the novel of the same name by Diana Wynne Jones.

Diana Wynne Jones · ‎Kacey Musgraves · ‎Sherina Munaf · ‎Shinobu Terajima

This was an interesting movie and didn’t fill out the way I thought it would go or end. I would say it ended with an okay ending. One has to come up with how the movie turned out. 

Well, I am done watching anime for now. I need to get back to my green project and relax for the rest of the weekend….

America Online Part 3: Arizona..

The first thing that came to my mind when I realized Arizona was my next stop was Charles Barlkey. Well, The Phoenix Suns (basketball team) anyway, and “No I am not going to talk about basketball.

{}Arizona US State

Description: Arizona, a southwestern U.S. state, is best known for the Grand Canyon, the mile-deep chasm carved by the Colorado River. Flagstaff, a ponderosa pine-covered mountain town, is a major gateway to the Grand Canyon. Other  natural sites include Saguaro National Park, protecting cactus-filled Sonoran Desert landscape. Tucson isUniversity of Arizona territory and home to the Arizona-Sonora Museum. – Google{}

Since, I am in the middle of correcting a problem. (I noticed as I was spelling out “Happy Birthday” I was going to run out of room. I was about to start watching a movie, but  then I realized I was rather watch something that is real – Online real anyway.

#1 Good information and places to go to learn about the state. I did like the park and maybe driving through the desert in a nice air condition car or RV that would give my long legs room. (and, no I will NOT be driving)

I had seen these other videos by “4K” and thought I should start there as I work on my project. Cool idea, but I wanted to add a little info before I get to that..

📍Unforgettable Sedona experience must include spending time at internationally renowned Tlaquepaque (pronounced T-la-keh-pah-keh), Sedona Arizona’s Arts & Crafts Village, on of the best things to do in Sedona. Nestled beneath the shade of the sycamores on the banks of beautiful Oak Creek in Sedona, Tlaquepaque is the most distinctive Sedona shopping experience to be found in the Southwest. Authentically fashioned after a traditional Mexican village, Tlaquepaque, meaning the “best of everything,” has been a Sedona landmark since the 1970’s. Its vine covered stucco walls, cobble-stoned walkways and magnificent arched entryways give you the feeling that Tlaquepaque has been here for centuries. Tasteful galleries and unique shops live in harmony with its lush natural environment where giant sycamore trees stand in testimony to the care taken in preserving the timeless beauty of the Tlaquepaque grounds. It would be hard to find more beautiful surroundings anywhere to create a shopping experience like no other.

#3 : I LOVED this video and it looked like a nice place to visit. I did see a lot of people still NOT WEARING masks. That part made me a little sad. I take that back, it made me VERY UPSET! This sickness is real and people should just wear the masks or stay home.

On a happy note. I realized I actually wish I was there with a book on my lap and a pen in my hand. I would LOVE to start writing my next series of books there, and I am smiling again.


4K Walking – Horseshoe Bend Page, Arizona


•Aug 11, 2020  Seattle Sunshine Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped incised meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, United States. It is also referred to as the “east rim of the Grand Canyon.” There is $10 entrance fee. Elevation: 4,200 feet…       {}          

#4 The view was great, but for me it’s a “No”.  I really don’t like walking in the dirt. Then again, I could walk some, and enjoy the sights. Nature is beautiful, vitamin D would be great as well, and who knows I might actually like it – if I had the chance to visit.

Living in Arizona Now

This is a virtual tour around the best Arizona small towns for 2021. These are our favorite small towns in Arizona but there are many small towns that could be on this list and that’s why I am asking if you guys would like a Part 2 or even a Part 3. This list of small towns is from Northern Arizona, Central Arizona and Southern Arizona. Some of these small town tours you can do in a day trip some may require an overnight stay if you really want to relax. Also a few of these towns you can see in one trip. For example the Jerome, Cottonwood and Sedona trip can be done in one day if you leave early enough.                    {}

#6 : I may not have  been able to add a picture, but if you click on the youtube page info then you will see some more nice places to visit.

On a side note: if I get close to a state and you think one of the cities would be nice to add to my traveling online idea….

America Online: Part 1

I have always wanted to travel, but I am going to start being honest with myself. I may NOT be able to visit other States across my homeland, but that doesn’t mean I cannot see them.

I am in a new age where anywhere can be seen online and one can set their dreams free if “They just Change how they look out into the world,” so here I  go looking at the World with new eyes.

I will start with  Alabama and go from there….

(I wanted to add a picture, but I got to thinking about what is copyright and what is free? I will come back to this or not – )

Alabama –  US State


Alabama is a southeastern U.S. state that’s home to significant landmarks from the American Civil Rights Movement. The city of Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church, now a museum, was a protest headquarters in the 1960s. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s church and the Rosa Parks Museum, dedicated to the activist, can be found in the capital of Montgomery. ― Google

**A Side Note: This idea came from me watching a video on youtube of New York City and I thought I could watch a video on other States as I continue to work on my baby blue blanket (which I am almost done with) and get a feel for the State.

However that isn’t what I saw. The first thing that came to mind was, “this State LOVES its football,” and this wasn’t what I was looking for.

Then I noticed “The do’s and don’t” video and thought that was a good idea. I got to copying and pasting and then saw the copyright sign. My first thought was to get in contact with them and ask them if I could add their story to mind. 

That was a Big “NO” from me. I knew if I had to stop and wait for an answer I had to stop writing and by the time I got an answer I would have moved past this story.

~ So, I am going to first look for another video that may showcase this state, and go from there…..

Alabama – United States

THEWORLDOFTRAVEL Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States.

💙 💙 Now this is what I was looking for. This video may not have had the music or the names of all the areas that were seen. This video was like seeing the state as if you were driving through the streets of Birmingham Alabama and that is what you were doing.

I felt as if I was there (although I would have had some music in the background, but that maybe just me) and it was cool.

As the driver got closer to what I was really curious to know what those large poles were that were on the right side of the driver as they drove past a street sign that read: 12 Ave N. was it a baseball field or maybe a golf course? 

It’s Google map’s time. I have an address so – Still don’t know what I saw. It’s okay, I am now over it.  I thought I would add some history to this, but then I remembered I didn’t like doing that while I was in school and I am NOT about to do that now. Besides, I am not writing a history report or acting as a tour guide. (Feel free to look up all the info you want to look up online or your local library) 

I just want to look at places that make up America and who knows maybe another state may catch my attention and I would like to know more about it. Until then it’s time to get back to my blanket….

Just have to add a border and this project will be done….

Changing How I Move…

Okay, I changed my mind about walking outside in the cold (way 2 sleepy & my mind is on my next project) I decided to dance. I sometimes talk 2 fast & say the 1st thing out of my head, (not always a good thing) because when I told a friend I started dancing again and said, “it’s not what you are thinking”. I had to go back and apologize, because not all guys have a dirty mind.

I only got through 30mins (I WILL GET BACK N SHAPE 1 DAY), but this is a good tired feeling.. I remembered the 1st time I tried this dvd I could only do 10mins.

I am going to fix a cup of hot tea and work out a plan to get me moving at least 30mins everyday to be a better me.

Changing how I eat won’t do any good unless I change how I move.

More the an Anime..

I am watching a new anime “B_ack C_over,” and I was going to add a picture and info about the creator, but going through (what is and isn’t copyright) so I am not giving the full name of the show or any pictures.

This story talks about NOT giving up on your dreams and Not letting others stop that dream.

They may have to go through a battle both on the battlefield, through family, and people who could have been your friend.

Is this just like reality? No one wants to be alone and one has to go through a lot of people to find a true friend. One shouldn’t accept a person by blood, classmates, or the workforce.

A friend is someone who truly cares for you, encourages you to be better, and helps you Smile when you are feeling sad. Who says watching anime isn’t good for you.
