Ah, lovely, soothing, relaxing and beautifully coloured. Can always tell which are yours, @clueliss.  They are always, well, mystical!  Gorgeous mandala. I need to get back to coloring. (Maybe this weekend.)

I was doing so good catching up and then my butt got angry and I was a slacker again.  Since it's election day I told my butt to deal and am sitting up all damn day to get stuff done, damnit!   Aside over...

I love your color selections.  Do you use a color wheel or just pick things you like.  I've been reading more on color theory because I have been in a bit of a rut (since I started coloring lol).  I get great ideas from you guys, but left to my own devices I tend to default back to the same colors I always use.    I got a pocket color wheel and it's really helped me add more color combos to my coloring that don't look like a blind monkey randomly grabbed them out of the marker box ;)

@Curious one of my methods is to use the pen that has the most ink left- it forces me to use ones that I don't necessarily like.

I will admit that I sometimes skip over colored pencils that are shorter (used more) than others.

      There are some versions of the bible that clean up the story of Jacob and Joseph, so that the reader is missing something. Joseph wasn't the arbitrary favorite. He was one of the only biological children of Jacob and Rachel. His brothers who plotted against him were all half brothers. Jacob wanted to marry Rachel, but was tricked into marrying her older sister Leah. The Lord made Leah very fertile to make up for it. Rachel was almost barren until Joseph. (In the meantime, Rachel and Leah both sent their maid servants to have children by Jacob.) Jacob and Rachel were eventually able to have 2 biological children: Joseph and later, Benjamin. Benjamin was too young and not apart of selling Joseph into Egypt. Some versions clean up the story to just say that Rachel and Leah are the bio-moms of all the kids and Joseph just happens to be the favorite, but this is incorrect. 

      Jacob's father-in-law arguably started the problem when he tricked Jacob into marrying the wrong sister. 

      They really don't do Biblical marriage like they used to.

      I think the best part of Gary's retelling is struggling to remember any of the names or relationships, that's what people look for in a preacher. Although I can see all the women in the story going through all the kids names until they hit the right one!

      Not exactly real life, but there's a woman I followed off/on for a long time on-line. She has always admired fundies like the ones we follow here. She was single for a while, but in her late 20s/ early 30s she met a widower with slightly larger than average family. He's fundie and now she's a fundie homeschooling stepmother. They also had a baby together. Now she's set up an account to be social-media homeschooling Quiverfull SAHM.  Because of the stepkids, they have biggish family (not Duggar big, but bigger than average.) She seemed like a sweet person, but this seems like a risky move for many reasons.

      Wow! That’s a massive house. They certainly don’t seem like they want a herd of children - I’d guess one or two more, if any. I wonder what they’ll do with all that space? 

      Why can't I get that kind of deal?! I have a career  🤣 ... and ethics, a conscious, morals, work ethic... that tracks 🤨

      That's why I was wondering about the BR/BA distribution. I haven't seen that posted, but I haven't looked at the Reddit thread for several hours.

      It's 4600 sf. More than double what they had before.
