Good morning everyone!
I have another post for you today! This is “What is happening in my life #4”
These posts are super fun and full of randomness about my life, so let’s get right into it! 🙂
I started school.
You know what this means! Summer’s over. 🙁
(at least for me anyway)
Yeah. I don’t really know what else to say in this section. Let’s move on.
(the section where I show you random, very terrible pictures.) (like the one below)
Oh my. I hope you can tell that’s a mouse XDD
So my younger siblings take turns feeding the chickens, okay? (I did it by myself when I was younger and they were too young) And this particular morning, it was my sister’s turn to feed them.
She went out to our backyard, got the jar for the food, and went into the shed. (which is where we keep the chicken feed)
She came running back to the house! (I think in excitement *shrugs*)
“There’s a baby mouse in the shed!!”
My brother and I came out to look at it, and on the way out the door, my sister grabbed our cat, Livvy. (let me find a picture of her)
And we went out the shed. The mouse wasn’t actually a baby mouse, it was just a small one.
I took a picture (the one above) to show you guys and then, my sister let our cat loose!! (she had been looking at the mouse, trying to get at it and the mouse had been trying to jump out of the box)
Well. Livvy is a good mouser, which is kind of a joke in our family now because our other cat, Snowy, is not. XD
My Dad once put him in a box with a mouse we caught and Snowy jumped right out. Yeah… *shakes head* he’s still a good kitty though. 😛
Anyway Livvy jumped right into the box and jumped right back out, mouse in her mouth. She went out in our yard and played with it for about an hour.
She ran around with it, let it go, and caught again until she finally lost it. *facepalm*
Then she meticulously searched the backyard, walking all around, through the grass, looking everywhere. I don’t if she ever found it. Oh well XDD
Also this all happened on the morning of the first day of school. *sigh*
Also, our chickens have started laying eggs! (our new chickens, the old ones are still laying)
Sorry for the shadow, I was trying to demonstrate how little some of the eggs are 😛
Oh, I don’t think I’ve told you this, but I’m actually taking a break from my novel for a bit before I start heavily editing 😉
These are snippets from a story I started working on during Camp NaNo which I haven’t actually worked on much since then. I need to figure out some plotting for that story XD
*Please don’t steal any of this, it is my writing*
“The rain is always so peaceful,” James commented.
I’m not really sure about names yet either… I think I’ll keep Bethany, but I’m not so sure about James. 😉
I landed on the wet grass, a wonderful green color and dropping to the ground, I ferociously grabbed up my shovel and started hacking at the weeds taking over a plot of land that would soon be my own very beautiful garden.
Well that’s a bit of an overload on adjectives XD
The weeds piled up next to me as I pulled them up in triumph.
We worked in companionable silence, the rain slowing to a drizzle.
Let me know how you liked those in the comments below!
This is actually a story I’ve completely made up. It pretty much has zero plotting XDD
Maybe I’ll plot it more in the future 😉
I don’t know if you remember, but every time I do a post like this, I give a shout-out to a random blog that I follow.
Let’s find out who’s blog it is this week!
Penny is such a sweet person and her memes are hilarious, so go give her a follow if you like what she blogs about!! 😀
Books I’m currently reading!
Princess Academy by Shannon Hale (Goodreads)
This is a pretty cool book so far! An interesting story… 😉
My family is actually going to the library today so I need to hurry up and finish this one!! 😀
The Lost Princess by Loretta Marchize (Goodreads)
I’m reading this one on my kindle! (Yes, I got a kindle! My Grandma gave me her old one! Now I don’t have to read review copies on my computer anymore!)
I’m enjoying this one! I’m reading it slowly but pretty close to halfway done 😉
One Thousand and One Arabian Night by Geraldine McCaughrean (Goodreads)
Interesting cover on this one XDD
I’m reading it for school! Just a chapter a day and I am on *checks book* chapter 13, page 101 😛
Black Beauty by Anna Sewell (Goodreads)
This is another book I’m working my way through for school! We have a hardback copy with this cover and it is so pretty!! 😀
My Mom does a horse history learning thing with my sister and while I don’t do all the activities, I do read all the books XD
I haven’t read this one in forever too! And my Mom just assigns us a few chapters a week 😉
The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien (Goodreads)
This is the book my Dad is currently reading out loud to us! (we aren’t reading this edition but the cover on that one was showing up super small. I don’t know why)
It’s the second book of the Lord of the Rings series! We’re all enjoying it! 🙂
Beyond Her Calling by Kellyn Roth (Goodreads)
And last but not least, my current beta project!
It has no cover yet, but when it does, I’m sure it will be awesome!
I’m not too far into this book yet *makes mental note to read a few chapters today* only on page 33, but I’m really liking it! 😀
Wow, that’s a lot of books!
I bought some books?!
That’s right! I bought 2 more books!!!
Kate had some leftover stock from the convention she just did and guess what books I got?!
I got Kiera and The Treasure Hunt!!!!! (signed too!)
The Treasure Hunt by Kate Willis (Goodreads)
I already read The Treasure Hunt and it was such a sweet little story! I definitely recommend, for all ages! 🙂
Kiera by Kate Willis (Goodreads)
I haven’t read this book yet, but I’ve heard so much about it and it looks very, very good!!! 😀
Thanks for reading this long post and I hope you have a wonderful Friday!
