a peek of summer || "I've got the shots!"

Saturday, April 16, 2016

You know it's spring/summer when you go outside to play basketball for an hour with your siblings and when you come back in you discover you have been bitten about 9 times by mosquitoes.
Yup. Here comes summer.

We were walking along the path and this guy with a dog went by (if you know Julia really well, she is allergic to them. arg.) So I started forming this plot in my head:
"Julia," I hissed as the guy walked by, "what if you start hysterically screaming and run away, and I'll run after you and yell, 'It's okay Julia, I've got your shots!'"
Julia: "Let's do it."

We found this little cove around the river bend and set up my sisters hammock by the creek, then Julia and I waded in the river and sat on rocks.  (I got off when I saw this huge, creepy looking spider on a log next to me). (Hammocks make you want to take a nap. XD )

Today I should reach 20k on my book, which is a little less than halfway. XD


do the mosquitoes "eat you alive?"
aren't sisters the best to form plots with?

  1. Those trees are just stunning, I obsess too much about the beauty of trees, they're just a beautiful aspect of nature.

    Mosquitos have not come around my area yet, thankfully, but when they do, they show no mercy towards me. It's just bite after bite, itch after itch. And it makes me want to hide in my room and NEVER GO OUTSIDE. urgh.

    Lovely photos Sarah, and I don't know if I've told you this, but you're gorgeous :) <3

    1. Oh, I know. God's creation is AWESOME. :D

      ugh, that really stinks. I know what it's like. It's so annoying when you are itching all night long. LOL. Yes, especially when you have camp fires and the bugs are swarming. :P

      aw, thank you so much! You are so sweet to say so. <3 <3

  3. I love the pictures! I basically live smack in the middle of a forest, so I'm always surrounded by trees. And my readers are treated to tree pictures. XD

    That's hilarious. XD My sister is basically my best friend, and we get really goofy and do some pretty weird things when we decide to go out on a walk just the two of us. (Like literally screaming at cars to honk, shouting "WOOO!" if they did and rolling our eyes if we didn't. XD)

  5. The new pictures of you are so cute :)! And, I've told Julia several times that I think we're a lot alike... but after hearing this story, eh. No. That is definitely more my Dad's speed. Why in the world would you want to draw that much attention to yourself on a calm walk?!!?!?! Lol! I would die. I might suggest it to someone. But if they agreed, I would panic, hahahaha!

    2. I love hearing stories like this, and deep down, I think I admire the people who make them happen... but the thought of doing it makes me shrink into a ball inside, haha :)!

    3. hahaaa, we didn't exactly DO it. Sadly, I thought of the plot after the guy walked by. XD

    4. Oh, well, then, I can actually relate and say that is something my sister and I would PLAN to do. Haha :). And, um, yeah... that sister is probably getting really tired of me accidentally commenting under her account :p... sorry!

  7. Sarah, you and your sister are hysterical! But did she actually run away screaming? Some of my sisters are severely allergic to cats and dogs as well and it's funny because I think the animals they are most allergic to are always drawn to them.

    I love your photos! It must be so fun to explore in the woods. My brothers and I used to hike in the woods behind our parents' house all the time! So many good memories...

    It's not quite summer here, yet, but after all this rain I imagine all the mosquitoes will come out to play. *sigh*

    1. oh noooo, she didn't do it. We contemplated it, but it was too late anyways. XD

      aw, thanks so much! Hiking through the woods is very enjoyable as long as the bugs aren't out. The leaves on our trees just started to blossom today, can't wait for the green! :D

  10. MOSQUITOES UGHHH. One, that word is impossible to spell. Thank goodness for spell check. And TWO, they hate me. They want to kill me, I swear. It's not uncommon to count over 80 bug bites on my body. -.^ *sobs* And then the rest of my family doesn't even struggle at all. Sigh. xD

    Love the pictures! <3

    1. *guilty* Yup. Spell check is a must for that word. :P IKR? It's like, WHY ARE YOU GUYS NOT EFFECTED BY THIS. It's the only thing about summer I detest. I saw this thing on pinterest once, "Sure wish Noah had swatted those two mosquitoes," lol!

      Thanks so much! <3
