What's that ? Glad you're safe!
your dieing your hair.. what color? I use to put light blond streaks in mine, but now its all grown out and back to it natural color, I just got tired on maintaining it.
Same colour as always - blue/black =) I just need to touch it up - it grows out fast, and my roots of course are a light blonde, so it looks pretty tacky when I let it go too long, lol!
I'm happy to hear you, kaokame
, AND your petunias made it out OK! Four guests?? You'll have your hands busy! :)
Yep!! We get a lot of guests (something about living in Florida with a spare bedroom - lots of people like to visit!!). Some months we have more dayw WITH houseguests than without!!! I love it though - I miss my family and love having them here =) My sisters might move down here eventually - that would be so awesome! Amber & Chris are going to check out neighborhoods over their vacation >^__^
Okay, I LOATHE hot weather - but I'm packing this afternoon and we'll move right down next week! LOL - Just kidding!!! ;-)
That fruit tree is .. amazing. I do bet that citrus sales are gonna take a hit........ good thing I'm not an OJ drinker...
While the possible waste is quite sad, that picture of a fruit tree is really cool, you should paint it.
I think you'd mentioned being blonde before, cos somehow it didn't surprise me...the eyes did tho! Are the contacts comfortable? I wear contacts usually and am so tempted to try the different colour ones, and some of the more bizarre ones :)
Isn't that a striking photo of the tree? It really is kinda sad though - I was walking through the woods behind my house and all of the fruit trees have lost their fruit, and it's all laying in piles rotting away - it smells like rotten bananas outside, hehe. It floats in the flood water, bobbing around.....
Most coloured contacts feel exactly the same as regular contacts - they just look different in the mirror! The only ones that are even slightly uncomfortable are "scleral" or "partial scleral" lenses - that means they cover part or all of the white of your eye. I had a pair of green cat's eye lenses that were like that and I'd take them out after about 6 hours, they were kind of irritating.
Wow! some of those houses are cool that they are building them like plantation homes & stuff! That fruit tree picture was AWESOME!! (though bad for the industry)
Isn't it pretty? That's very similar to the architecture styles built here in Celebration. Most of the houses here are re-created Victorians, Plantations, Greek Revival Mansions, Mediterranean Villas, etc. - I've got a nice classical house myself (I don't like posting photos of the outside online though for privacy purposes though =P). One of these days I'll go around town and take pictures of the houses - most of them are mansions!!! Here's the current listings for some good photos CLICKY
(hehe, I have a lot of "town pride", lol!)

First off I want to say, glad you & yours are safe in that crazy weather! second, that I love your work, it's inspiring, imaginative, & for thoses of us who are really into the world of make-believe, very real. please keep up the wonderful work!
Thank you so much!!! I'm happy to try to make the world a little more magical ;) And welcome to my LiveJournal!
Wow, that picture of the fruit tree is amazing! I mean, it's really sad, but I love that picture! I'm glad you didn't have any poor fruit trees :(
It sounds like you have some fun times coming up!
Ooo, I'll have to go check out that Harmony site! I love the whole idea of Celebration, but I think it's a bit to expensive for us right now :( Oh, yeah, and there's the whole convincing Brock to move to Florida, which isn't going so well, but I can still look!
Wow that fruit tree has had it. It is sad all that grapefruit wasted, I am sure the prices will go up on all citrus. Juice too. Sharon.. Jasmine How are you and Matt holding up I havenot heard from you? Guess your busy I can tell by the journal.
That'll be fun with all your guests hehe! I love having people to stay but the only thing I dislike is waiting for my turn for the bathroom in the mornings :( when my grandparents and auntie were staying for a couple of weeks we had to draw up a rota for 'bathroom' time because we have a boiler for our water so people were spending AGES in the shower and nicking all the hot water!! I had many cold showers that fortnight!
Aww poor fruit tree! My dad's been growing a plum tree in our garden and we got 4 bucket's worth of plums' of it this year! I think the type they are are Victoria plums or something which are apparently one of the best. I'm not a plum person so I can't say whether they were yummy or not!

Have fun with your family
I hope you have a good time. That fruit tree picture was insane. I hope it doesn't mean we won't have fruit or juice up here this winter.
So, I guess Ivan is next. I had never heard of a hurricane called Ivan before, despite my personal affection for the name. Of course, I guess it's meant to be terrifying.
I like these concept town ideas! =D Harmony sounds great!!!!
Good luck with all the busy work. Yuck! =P I know how that is sometimes . . .

Glad you're safe
Hey, Jasmine, this is Shaun Bell. We used to work together briefly at Rainforest Cafe in Kansas. In the aftermath of the hurricane(s) I was concerned about you and Matt. Glad to see you guys are okay. Stay safe!
