walking in the air

"We're walking in the air, we're floating in the moonlit sky. The people far below are sleeping as we fly."

Christmas is tomorrow! :D It doesn't feel like Christmas Eve though, it feels like just another day. Probably because I haven't watched any old Christmas movies, like The Year Without A Santa Clause, or Jack Frost. BUT it's dark and gloomy and raining outside, and it hasn't rained in 50 days here. I call that a Christmas miracle. And it makes it feel a bit more like winter. On Tuesday the high was 84. 84°. In Debember, 4 days before Christmas. Then the next day it was 40. Yeah, I hate the weather here.

I had trouble sleeping last night, so I drew while listening to this song on repeat;

"Far across the world, the villages go by like trees, the rivers and the hills, the forests and the streams. Children gaze open mouth, taken by surprise. Nobody down below believes their eyes."

I went Christmas shopping with one of my friends Wednesday, even though I had already finished all of my shopping. We went to Hobby Lobby so she could buy a whole bunch of boxes and crafts and whatnot to make some presents. So after we sat in the back of her truck in the park and painted. It was so cold out, and a whole bunch of people looked at us as though we were nuts. It was fun. :)

I spent most of today playing wii games. I guess I was playing one too long, a pop up came on screen and said "Would you like to pause the game? You can always resume later." And the background was of a room with a window showing a bright, sunny day outside. Are you trying to tell me something?

"We're surfing in the air, we're swimming in the frozen sky. We're drifting over icy mountains floating by. Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep, arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep."

So, Merry Christmas everyone! :)
