I am SO EXCITED! Christmas Eve is tomorrow! I have almost all my presents done, Mom is baking the last of the cookies, and Jamie (the cat) knocked over my mini-tree in my room. I hope I get wonderful stuff and that you do too. Also, I have reindeer antlers on. I will post some pictures of my house and other Christmassy things later today.

Merry Almost Christmas and a Happy Nearly New Year! :)

Friday, November 30, 2012


I am so happy and exctited! Guess why? Well, actually, there are two main reasons.

1. Today I am going on a Girl Scout trip to the Hagley Museum. Also, afterwards, Purple Pixie and all her sisters are coming to our house after! And then, I have another Girl Scout meeting tonight!

2. Over the weekend we are getting ready for Christmas! We will decorate our tree, and put up lights and everything! :) :) :) I wonder what our cats will do...

Remember that my photo contest ends tomorrow, and I only have one entry!

Cool Jazz

First of all, I'd like to wish Green Bird a very happy birthday! :) Second, I'm going to announce a photo contest. Everyone so far voted Yes! on my poll, so get ready folks!

The theme of the contest is something you are thankful for, in honor of Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for my Mom's great cooking. These are her homemade chicken nuggets with garden tomatoes, pasta and garden basil.

Here are the rules:
  1. You must take the picture. You!
  2. It must have to do with the theme.
  3. You must post it on your blog and comment with the link. I'm sorry if you don't have a blog. I'd say put it on Twitter, but I don't have a Twitter account so that won't work.
  4. You have to enter before December 1st.
  5. You can't copy "Mom's great cooking" because I already did that. If two people are thankful for the same thing otherwise, that's fine. 
May the fates be ever in your favor, may the force be with you, good luck, break a leg, blah blah blah all that jazz. :)

Siblings...They Make The World Go Round

My brother is so funny. He says the strangest things. He always manages to make me laugh, even after we've been fighting. This morning when we were doing math he said:

"My word problem says 38 degrees. Brr."
Mom said: "It's  probably like that outside now."
He replied: "What a coincidence. Or maybe..." Now he started talking in a weird voice "It was mysteriously meant to be..." 

My aunt travels a lot, and she usually brings us things from the countries she visits. I collect dolls (maybe I'll post some pictures) and she sends him soccer jerseys. He got one from Egypt this time. He put it on as soon as he got it yesterday and wore it to bed and is still wearing it now! :P How silly!

What do your siblings do?


Tuesday, November 13, 2012


OMGosh! This is so exciting! Whoohoo! Take Me Home at last! I love One Direction sooooo much!
They are even in Time Magazine, they are that awesome. *Sigh* I love them so much.

Happy “Take Me Home” Release Day

It's a photo contest entry, everybody!

Here we go...

This is the cherry tree in my front yard. Unfortunately, it is an ornamental cherry tree and does not produce real fruit! ;)  It's flowers and leaves are gorgeous, however, and make up for the lack of cherries.

I took this picture just in time, because Hurricane Sandy is on it's way, and it just might hit us. We were supposed to be going camping, but Mom was all like "no way are we going camping in a hurricane." So we have another trip planned for April instead. Anywho, I hope my picture is good enough for ya, Laura!

Bye for now!
 Good luck for anyone who might be in the way of Hurricane Sandy!

Two Poems I wrote!!

A quest afar to lands undreamt
A quest to ruins long unkempt
A quest of bravery, trust as well
Before last sun of summer fell
A quest beyond and one within
A quest to save your unknown kin
A quest that may be danger fraught
I warn you now, but tarry not
A quest that if you fail in
A quest will never be again
A quest at which you must succeed
To stop a one most terrible deed
To stop the king of Elderseed     


At the Cape of Henlopen

At the Cape of Henlopen,
Sea scented air.
I’m without a single care.
Flying past upon my Bike,
A Hill,
My muscles screaming as I struggle up
At last, the Peak, the Crest on high,
And then descending down I Fly.
The Dunes and Birds above,
The crashing of the Sea,
And the hard breathing of me.

More Stories coming!!!



Thursday, October 4, 2012

Well, a lot of people have been posting about 9-11. That's really scary for me, so I will only post a little. I was only 1 at the time. My mom, dad and I were living in San Francisco, in a tall apartment building. Dad had just left for work, when Mom turned on the TV to watch the news. When she saw it, the tower exploding, she called Dad and was like: Get Back Home Right Now Something Horrible Has Happened. My Dad rode his bike to work back then, so he came home right away. It must have been really scary.

Another sad thing happened today that not many of you may know about. At the library, the flag was flying half mast, and so I asked my mom, Why is the flag at half mast? This morning, the US embassy in Libya was stormed, and the ambassador and several others were killed.

If you have time in your day, a moment of silence for the 9-11 victims and the ambassador and all the countless others who have died..................................................................................................

My best,

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Yesterday Dad, Brother and I went creeking at White Clay Creek State Park. And, we saw some Daylilies  that had taken root in a fallen down tree over the river! There was a really deep part and a tree that leaned over the river. Someone tied ropes to it, and Dad tried to swing off them. It didn't really work. He jumped off instead. I was really scared to do it, but when I finally jumped off the big tree, it was really fun and I did it again.Brother isn't that good at swimming, so he got on Dad's back and Dad swam him around where he couldn't touch the bottom.

DayLily :)

Monday, July 2, 2012
