It happens every time.
I go on my blog… and suddenly my mind goes blank. Completely, and utterly blank. (Okay, maybe a just a bit of an exaggeration… but you get the point.)
When I’m not on the computer I have wonderful, witty ideas for posts, yet as soon as I go on open Firefox nothing.
It’s not that I have a lack of things going on in my life: My Grandparents are here from BC, I just attended three social functions in the last two days, and yet… urg. When I try to actually write….oieghioQIEHJF. Excuse me- I was banging my head on the keyboard.
Okay, I can do this, I’ll just take a deep breath and post.
Grandparents: I know I’ve already talked about them in my last post (well, sorta) but I might as well talk about them even more.
My Grandma is helping me paint/decorate my bedroom (yes, that’s right, my OWN room!) as a Christmas/Birthday present.
It’s great throwing ideas back and forth, about, well, everything to do with paint, rooms, beds, decor, and many, many other things.
My Papa (my name for my maternal grandpa) is a great gym goer. He is very interested in body building, and is in fact a boxing coach. Although I enjoy the gym I’m not allowed in the particular one he’s got a membership for (too young).
This does not bug me in the least though. Because while he is in the gym- I can go to the library. (a hint to all you book lovers otherwise known as ‘book worms’, or ‘people who seemingly eat books try ”Rose Daughter’ by Robin McKinley. Good, good, good!)
Also, all those social events I mentioned? Yesterday I entered a Geo Bee challenge with some other people in the homeschooling group. (national geographic’s Geographic Bee- a test to see who knows the most about Geography.) Last night I went to Interaction (So. Much. Fun.) and today I went to the Stewart Hurley ice skating rink with some good friends. (Just like most Wednesdays)
And now, to finish this post off, 3 random facts. (because I am feeling much too lazy to even contemplate doing ten. Okay, I lied, I can contemplate it, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to do it.)
1- I’ve just got a pair of spandy new sheep skin lined (so much for animal friendly) uggs. Perhaps not the most stylish footwear, but certainly the most comfortable and warm. I often wear them indoors as slippers- I am now in fact- when I can pry them off of my Mom’s feet.
2-Also to be recommended: “The Thief Lord” by Cornelia Funke. I enjoyed this much more than her Inkheart series. Also “Dave at Night” By Gail Carson Levine, and “The Bartimaeus Trilogy” by Johnathan Stroude. There’s more, but I’ll stop.
3- I am knitting the second in a pair of mittens. (destined for me.)
