God’s Amazing World!

Hey guys! By the way…I’m posting this on Friday because I won’t be around tomorrow morning to post it.

So my older sister “stole” my camera a while ago and took some AMAZING pictures! So to “get back at her” I’m using them as a blog post (note: my sister is fine with this).

Anyone else thinks my sister should be a photographer?

Alright, people……storytime! So Winnie has this obsession with chickens/guineas….she LOVES to chase them! A few days ago Winnie was outside and she ran after the guineas chasing them EVERYWHERE! My dad was able to catch her and discipline her but because I was calling her to come he let her go to come to me…..and guess what?! She ran back after the guineas and because she still is a puppy she fell into the creek getting covered in mud and spring water (right before friends were going to come over). So my dad and I had to hose her off. Thankfully my older sister grabbed my camera and got a hilarious picture of her “bath”.

Also, I was cleaning up our kitchen and I heard this huge racket…….wanna know what happens when your little sis decides to pretend the puppy’s a horse and “practice” brushing it!

Alright!! See you soon!!!

Book Worm Writer Tag!

Hey guys! Keziah from Keziah E. nominated me for the Book Worm Writer Tag (which I’m super excited about guys)!! So I don’t think there are any rules for this tag which is awesome! Let’s get started!

book worm image

1. If you were to read one book,(aside from the Holy Bible) and only that book for the rest of your life, what book would that be? (I know that sounds terrible but it does make you think). Hmm….this is an extremely tough question…..I’d have to choose Resistance by Jaye L. Knight. It’s a really amazing book and the writing is awesome!

2. If you had the choice of either writing a mystery or a fantasy novel, which would you choose? Definitely mystery! I like fantasy but sometimes I just want something “real”.

3. What is the worst or most annoying cliche you have come across in all your book reading? When the writer uses “she said, he said, they said” and when they throw a bunch of random bible verses in that don’t really have any real meaning in them.

4. Why do you like reading? Because when you read you can open up areas in your life…..it also can help your imagination soar!

5. Top 3 favorite authors, …go! Jaye L. Knight, Laura Guenot, and Ronie Kendig

6. If given only two places to read your choice book, one being under a large tree with soft grass to sit on and two being in a hayloft, which would you choose? Definitely not a hayloft as I would be sneezing non-stop so I think I’d choose the large tree and soft grass!

7. On average, how many books do you read in a month? Depending on the business of the month but on average I can read up to 15 full-length novels 🙂

8. As a writer, you have experienced writing struggles. What do you think is the biggest challenge you have ever come across when crafting your pieces? Ok, so honestly I’m not a writer and probably I never could be one: 1. My grammer…..it lacks grammerness, and 2. When I do write (if you haven’t noticed) I write how I would usually speak out loud.

9. What is your biggest goal as a writer, meaning, what do you hope to accomplish later in your writing adventures? I guess I would hope to accomplish how to write better and know how to open up my imagination for writing! 

10. Finally, what type of book do you feel you must write? The quote by Beverly Cleary, ”If you don’t see the book you want on the shelf, write it.” is the inspiration to this question. In other words, what book do you not see on the shelf? I guess what I would love to “write” would be a book that has morals, action/adventure, and still flows and keeps your attention!

 

That was amazing! And now I nominate:

Beautiful Things

Rosy’s Writings

 

Thanks again, Keziah! See you all soon!

Lesson’s Learned…….

Hey guys! Since the Summer is over I thought I’d do a summary of what I’ve learned this year.

lessonss

  1. Being patient…this summer I was super challenged to be kind and patient with those I don’t get along with.
  2. Don’t let losing or pain take over your emotions. I know people say to share your feelings to others but I let a loss in a game and a sore leg take over my emotions so I had an emotional breakdown at a camp this year.
  3. I learned that I love teaching little kids because they don’t mind when the only game you can think of is duck, duck, goose! 
  4. I learned that NEVER put your glasses on top of your head and then drop them between a door and get them smashed….ugh! I just got new ones thankfully 🙂
  5. I learned that I have the most amazing parents and siblings.
  6. I realized that I don’t like impromptu singing gigs….and that I need to learn to like them cause they happen a lot!
  7. To not let huge messes bring down your attitude cause it usually isn’t that hard to clean up. 
  8. And one more (I don’t like stopping on uneven numbers), I learned that some circumstances might not be the best but I need to keep a good attitude through it all!

I really love doing summary’s cause they help me get my thoughts together so bear with me through them all! Also if you would like a more detailed camp story let me know in the comments and I’ll post about it sometime!

Okay…on to more important topic(s) hehe. So a while ago Anna from  A Story Nerds Life did a post about “A Peek Into Our AFHE GenRising Prep”. And guys I have no idea what brought this comment up but in the end, we talked about the time I blew on ice cream cause I thought it was soup…..(yes I’m weird, don’t question me). Anywho Anna made this awesome rhyme up and I knew I needed to use it in a blog post.

“I blew on my ice cream for I thought it was what it was not, my brain knew the truth but my muscles forgot”

-Anna

Thanks, Anna…..I think that’s gonna be my new go-to saying!

Alrighty, see you guys soon! 

Amazing Weather & Amazing Siblings!

Hey guys! So recently my brother came home to visit…..and we had a blast! We played Ticket to Ride, we swam, we took walks, and watched tons of fun movies (guys check out Relative Race, it’s AMAZING)!! I have a few pictures that we took this week…..

And that’s the end of the fun week we had 😦 We’re all looking forward to seeing and visiting with him again!! 

 

Update on Winnie: She’s pretty much the same since I last gave an update but she did cut her leg and it doesn’t seem to be healing very well…..so I wrapped it with some cream and gauze and surprisingly she didn’t chew it off. She was pretty patient with it though she didn’t like walking thankfully she got used to it after a while.  

 

Okay, see you guys soon 🙂

 

Photos, Videos, and Updates!

Hey guys! So this past week was super hectic and I don’t have a ton of photos from it…but I do have a video to share with you! I went to a Theatre Camp that was super fun and also super challenging in some ways……the video link here is “The Vessel with the Pestle” based on the movie “The Court Jester” and adapted by our director. I played Jean in it and the others in it are a few of my acting friends. I also just want to thank Natalie, Daniel, Tobin, and Nathan for all the hard work they put into this short skit! I really enjoyed working with you all 🙂

I was also in “Shall We Join the Ladies?” and Chattanooga Choo-Choo both went super well!

Also, I want to thank Mrs. S for taking amazing headshots of us all!

Also on Wednesday, we had this BEAUTIFUL sunset that I just had to share! 

 

Update on Winnie: She’s about 40 pounds and super smart! She is learning how to stay even while being distracted and we are thinking about taking her into stores that allow dogs so she can get her training in. We’ve also set up her spay appointment where she’ll also get her back two dewclaws removed and she’ll get chipped. Unfortunately, it’s going to cost a fortune to get that all done so I’ve been trying to save and work more!  

 

Okay, guys! See you all on Wednesday 🙂

Beyond the Horizon – Book Review

Beyond the Horizon

Hi guys! Some of you might remember the book tour I was in back in April called A Question of Loyalty by Jesseca Wheaton. 

Well, I just read her book Beyond the Horizon, it was…amazing! I know some of the blogs and people I know don’t like stories that have people falling in love with them (so please forgive me)!

About the book: Eliana longs to see the world beyond the mountains that tower above Salzburg, Austria, but knows that dream will never see such adventure- and neither will she. Surrounded by a world of cruelty, she lives for the weekly visits of Aron, a boy she met on one of her rambles through the countryside. But as the years pass and she begins to grow older, a new and unwelcome world is opened up to her. On a fateful night at a party she vowed she’d never attend, she comes face to face with a shocking truth. As the world around her teeters on the brink of war, Eliana struggles to figure out just where her loyalty lies; a decision that will drastically change the course of her life. Will she ever be free to see what lies beyond the horizon?

I’d rate this book 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!! And any age could read it in my opinion. The book is set in a Christmas Cinderella/WWII setting which makes it awesome! It was an amazing read though way too short ‘cries’. I love long books so seeing the length of this book made me kinda sad…but the plot made up for it!!! I’ve never been really into Cinderella stories cause they are all the same and make me kinda annoyed at the Prince…but the way Jesseca wrote the book made me so excited and happy! I was also really sad about what was going on but you know…it’s WWII, it’s not supposed to leave you with that ‘let’s drink hot cocoa around the fire and sing Kumbaya’ feeling. Either way please check it out if you like Cinderella/WWII stories! 

Okay, see you soon!
