*eyes gleam evilly*
I have waited very long for this. My fingers have missed the clickety clackety of the keyboard. And ha, you thought I milked every drop outta August? Not yet! 😛
It’s Friday. It’s the last Friday of August 2018. BAAAAAAAAAWWWHHH.
Anyway.. I’da waited til September, but I have enough pictures to make one last August post. Hence a Scribble Scrabble XD *waits for pictures to load*
We still gotta talk about Julie, my bell pepper plant! Well, guess what. She grew up! It’s red. A red bell pepper plant.
I mean, considering how I only want to grow stuff to eat them, this is kinda pathetic. But, hey, IT’S A VEGETABLE. Not a bad start. *sobs* She’s all grown up!
Ooh, yay, the pictures are loading!
Ahem. Anyway, so…
Crabapples. Or at least I think they’re crab apples.
We had stopped in front of a friend’s house to drop off equipment and a crab apple tree was in bloom. At least I think they’re crab apples. For all I know they could be the Forbidden fruit.. or something. These little things are lots of fun to pick and
hurl onto the road for cars to squash em flat to take pictures of, of course.
They just taste weird. I tried.
But wait, if they indeed are the forbidden fruit, then *gasp* I should be dead!
L&HD News will update you on this alert as it unravels.
Bye, crab apples of August. Hope you don’t kill me.
Anyhoo, I never did get to finish that challenge of Cassia’s.. oops. Sorry about that. I’m still looking for a train station. Heehee.
But I did get some puddles. One puddle, to be precise.
Puddles, puddles, puddles! Splashing in em, taking pictures in em, getting my mom scared that I’ll ruin my dslr by putting it a tiny bit too close to the edge.. puddles are fun. It was a rainy Sunday, so. *nods*
So yeah August was fun. Hard. The storm.
-lotsa 5 am belting out random songs
-heat (It’s HOT)
-late night talks
-Solid Joys. I’ve been listening to the devotionals by Pastor John Piper, and they really make you stop and think about the Bible. As well they should.
-microwave cooking (which my mom doesn’t really like but it’s a means to an end!)
-roleplaying with a lot of great people (and some videochatting and staying up late)
-scheduling for school (nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!)
-geeking out about Adventures In Odyssey cause I’m like the only kid who hasn’t hear it yet and I wanna buy the album
-actually doing homework
And I’ve been writing. BOOM! It’s been tons of fun. Especially if you change the text color. It’s my personal opinion that textbooks would be a lot more interesting to read if you could pick the color. Who wants to read in black all the time?
Done ranting. More random photos.
Puppies!!!!!! Those little wittle puppies!
Random photography is my favorite. Cause, y’know, I’m pretty random meself?
Anyway… the fun part!
It’s time, yep. I get to choose my favorites, and you get to suffer reading about it! 😛
This month’s favorite would have to be…….
Okay, I would totally pick one of the books I’m alpha reading. But since they haven’t exactly been published yet, I’m gonna have to pick something that is. *sniffles* And this is a good book. This is Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, by Nabeel Quershi. Reading about his life, and how he came to Christ, has been inspiring, and it’s helped me see things in a different angle. Did I enjoy this book? Yep. Was I challenged to be stronger and less passive in my faith? Yep.
Wanna know what I’ve been listening to to keep me awake?
*sniffles* The lyrics of the original are.. meh.. but this cover is beautiful. I’ve been trying to learn it on the violin, but like everything else, it’s gonna take some work.
Go check it out! Unless you’re not a fan of cello or piano music, or that kinda music isn’t your thing or.. yeah.
This has summed up my month, along with Mary Slessor’s “Pray on, dear one- the power lies that way.”
Hope this random post put a grin on your face. See ya.
