Orchard || Lately I have been...

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Lately I have been...

Writing...a poem (or trying..)
Crocheting...surprises for birthdays!
Eating...no-bake cookies
Anticipating...getting new books at the library
Relieved... that I just got five lessons of math done, (whoop!)
Learning...new crochet patterns
Excited...about having almost 30 followers!
Thinking..of my photo contest
Looking...at my notebook full of math problems.. ;)
Dreading....the time change
Seeing...how dark it is outside already...
Unsure...whether I am excited about fall or not
Getting ready...for Christmas, (already, yes, I know. Better to be early, rather than wait!) 
Enjoyed...going to the orchard, (me at the orchard in the picture above.)

Rhyming Thyme #1

Sunday, September 28, 2014

I'm starting a new series!! :D It's called, "Rhyming Thyme." (Yes, I know, I am spelling it that way for fun!)

I post a word, which in this case it "super," and you must comment with something that rhymes! 
If someone has already commented with the word that you chose, please try and find some other word, if there is no other possibility you can use the same one, just try and be creative and different, that way it will be more fun! 
I might post next time with my favorite rhyming word! :)

Rhyme away!

As far as the eye can see

A while ago we went to the beach! :D It was so beautiful! (yeah, I just finally got the pics loaded..) :t

Going to the beach is to much fun! We dug holes in the sand, buried people, swam into the deep (somewhat cold) water! It was wonderful! My sister even climbed a HUGE sand dune! I didn't do it though, I knew I would have been too tired! ;)

                                                    Do you like the beach?
                                                             What is your favorite part of the beach?
                                                                         Would you climb a HUGE sand dune?

Sundaes for Sunday

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Lately, I have been learning to cook more things! I have never been a very good cook, I usually always mess something up. But that's the way you learn! I'm trying to get over my fear of ruining something. ;)
Do you have any recipes to share? Maybe I could make it and do a post about it! :D 
One thing I made that actually turned out was biscuits! I love making those!

Then for breakfast this morning my sister and I made bagels, eggs, and cocoa. :) 
Cooking is such fun, I can't wait to learn how to make more and more things!

For dessert today, we had sundaes for Sunday! :D Yummm! Chocolate ice cream, coconut, nerds, Reece's pieces, crunch chocolate, and whipped topping! YUM! I suppose that is kind of torturing... ;) 

                                  What do you like to cook/bake?
                                               Have you ever made bagels? 
                                                           Do you like sundaes?

 Spend time with God, its a great way to start out your day!

Well, I noticed that I missed the verse for last week! Oops! I forgot to do a post ahead of time, I was too excited about camping I suppose. :D

Today, I have been:

Crocheting...party favors
Changing...into autumn clothes!! Yeek!
Adoring...my new boots!!!! I'll have to take some pictures and show you!
Looking...at the green leaves, wishing they would last
Excited...at how much math I am getting done! :D
Wishing...that winter would never come
Reading...Anne of Green Gables
Enjoying...the weekend
Learning...how to cook more things
Anticipating...a surprise!


                           What is going on in your life?
                                      What is your favorite thing to cook?
                                                     Do you have a pair of boots that you adore? 

Roughing it

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

The tent! It had three different rooms, my sister and I slept in the one on the left.

After that, we went down to the creek, did some bike riding, fishing, then came back and took everything down and packed up camp. 
Then we went home, unloaded, and cleaned up! :) 

                      What is your favorite part of camping?
                                 Which picture was your favorite?
                                               Would you rather sleep in the really cold, or really hot?

We're going CAMPING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Yup. We are going camping. The real camping. The kind where you actually go somewhere and sleep in a tent. Not a camper, nor a cabin. No. A tent. With sleeping bags, not cots. The kind if camping where you don't have too great of a temptation to go back in the house and sleep in your own, warm, bed. Nope. There certainly isn't that option with where we're going. We are really "roughing it!"

                                                      What is your favorite part of camping?
                                                                                Do you like "Roughing it?"

Blueberry Picking

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

      A few weeks ago, my sisters and I went blueberry picking! (It took me forever to get all the pictures downloaded!) Here are some pictures! :D
And.. Before that we went strawberry picking.. Then after that, we went raspberry picking.. Lol! Can you tell we like berries??

 This is actually a picture of me when we went strawberry picking. I just haven't had time to put it on yet! :)

Have you picked any berries yet this year? 
What is your favorite kind of berry to pick?
