Do you know what I mean?

I want to sleep. I am so tired. It seems like I've been tired for a week. I dunno why. My eyes are begging me to close them and my mind wants to wander aimlessly doing whatever it is that minds do...When Mum turned on my bedroom light this morning I was just sure it was about 4 in the morning. I somehow managed to flop out of the top bunk and get my teeth brushed and found a pair of socks in the laundry pile before family devotions. 
It's too loud. I don't like loud right now. 
I would like Some doughnuts. With chocolate icing and filled with chocolate custard. I could eat about a million. I am fond of doughnuts. They really are fantastic. I have made doughnuts before...they were pretty good. Mum makes them better than me though. 
I'm not really blogging. I'm actually just typing. Just because. It is fun to see how good my spelling is without looking at the computer at all for a while. It actually isn't all that bad. I just wrote most of all that without looking at the comp. ^_^ Including that smiley face. xD and that one.
I am currently reading Alice in Wonderland. I started it this afternoon and have only gotten a few chapters through but I thoroughly love it. It is beautiful. Lewis Caroll was truly brilliant. Either that or insane. Either one is good for me. :D
I have always loved the poem "Jabberwocky" You have read it right? Well, Just in case, here it is. I don't mind reading it again...and again....and again...It's too fantastic! lol. 

'Twas brillig and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe. 
All mimsy were the borogoves 
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite and claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The Frumious Bandersnatch.

He took his vorpal sword in hand
Long time the manxome foe he sought--
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
And stood a while in thought. 

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame
Came whiffling through the tulgy wood,
And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade whet Snicker-Snack!
He left it dead, and with it's head,
He went Galumphing back.

"And, hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy! 
O Frabjous Day!! Callou! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy. 

'Twas brillig and the slithy toves, 
did gyre and gimble in the wabe. 
All mimsy were the borogoves, 
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Luvluvluv xoxo

A little bit of random. :)

I just got back from a walk with Jonnah. ^_^ It is so gorgeous outside today! It is about 68 degrees, The sun is bright and warm, The sky is intense blue with pure white clouds scattered across it, and the wind is just about perfect. We walked close to 2 miles just around the farm. We started walking along the fence in front of our house all the way until the path met up with the driveway. At the bottom of the hill we turned right, instead of the usual left, at the top of the hill and went all the way to the fence. We walked up the fence line up into the field on top of Blackberry Hill. We passed a little red house on the other side of the fence and went all the way to the corner of the property. On the way back we cut across the field to the lilly-pond, which doesn't have lilly pads on it right now, then down the road and back up the hill. *sigh* It was nice.
It is only 14 days until my birthday!!! xD I am so excited! I love birthdays. Every year, in honor of my birthday, we watch my very favorite movies ever, Pirates of the Caribbean. This year I am having a few close girlfriends and my sisters-in-law over and having a Pirates Party. We are pretty much going to hang out, eat candy and junk food, laugh, squeal, and have a fabulous time. I am so excited!! Mom and I have spent the past 2 days planning and whatnot. ^_^
I can't believe I'm gonna be 17! O.o It seems odd to me. I guess I always thought that by the time I was 16-17 I would feel grown up. I don't. I feel less grown up than ever. That is not a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination! I am thrilled to be a kid. Just a teenaged kid. :D I don't want to grow up yet. <3 I s'ppose I'll have to soon enough...
I still haven't done a Day 5 doodle! lol.
I really don't have anything to write about. lol. I just thought that I would. I kinda felt in the mood....I don't really ever fell in the mood to write. I'm not a very good writer. I am a worse writer when it is something that I *have* to write about. Like an essay or a report. I hate those. Argh. The only kind of writing I even remotely enjoy is whatever I feel like. I like to be able to just type or write out whatever the heck I am thinking about. I could never write a book or a story...It wouldn't make sense. lol. And if I tried to get it to make sense it would be really dumb. :P lol.
Here are some random pictures that were in my folder...those do happen. lol.

So true....

I look kinda sleepy in this picture but I like the quality of it. :D Our camera accidentally took a good picture. 


I admit it. I have done every single one of those. 

Ninja TabbyCat!! xD 

lol. Fun Edits. 

<3 Luvluvluv!! <3

How I Feel Right Now...

kinda chilly....My family tends to like it quite a bit cooler in here than I do. I spent a lot of time standing or sitting about 2 inches or less from our wood stove. :) Right now I am wrapped in my fuzzy robe. It is cozy. I am in fuzzy socks too. Later when it is time to hang with the fam or watch a show or something I'll be wearing fuzzy pants as well. Yes, I am a fan a fuzzy clothes. xD lol.

sleepy...I went to bed a little later than usual last night and was up pretty early. I couldda slept for hours more. *yawn* I did manage to finish my school despite the sleepy feeling that caused Algabra to take an hour and a half. I hate Algebra. I am so craving a cup of strong coffee right now. About like this morning's...That was delish.

sorta bored...Just cos. lol. I am over here at the desk chompin' my gum and freezing and being sleepy and that's about all that's goin' on. :) Mum and Pop are gonna be out for the evening....I am babysitting my little siblings who are all in the living room cheering my two littlest siblings on while they play the x-box. I can think of about all of them who should be finishing the day's school right now... :) Maybe We'll play Kinect later. Have any of you tried that? It is so fun! :D

Happy...I had a pretty Epic weekend. I went to a friends birthday party, hung out with a friend that lives all the way over in Cali and came to visit, Went bowling, Went out for ice cream with friends, laughed, screamed, and all those fun things. xD Yeap.

Antsy....I wanna go somewhere new....I wanna go somewhere with long white sandy beaches and palm trees. Somewhere where the ocean is. I have never seen the ocean in real life. I love it though. I want to be there. *sigh* Where there are amazing kids of colorful fish and reefs and crabs and seagulls and pelicans and ships and yachts and islands and coconuts. I have always wanted to be there. Maybe someday I will. :) I keep telling myself with absolute certainty that someday I will. ^_^

Successful...I MEMORIZED THAT SONG!! xD That concerto that I am playing for Federation in 2 weeks! *grins* I finally memorized it. I am not as good at it as I would like currently but I am practicing like crazy and I'm sure I'll get close. :) I am nervous though. I am a pretty shy person and playing in front of a judge always gives me butterflies. or worse. Sometimes I feel like I'm gonna die. lol. I know people who have no problem performing in front of other people...That's not me. 0_0
Yeah. I kinda feel all of that right now. I also feel like I need to go put rice in the oven for dinner and like I need to get some kids busy cleaning up in here. ^_^

I think I have settled on a background!! :D There will be much more editing on fonts and layout and whatnot coming soon! What do you think of that header?? My Bestie, Nonii, made that for me. :D She is so kool. :)
Anyways, I'm gonna post a few pictures from this week and get off of this computer. I have spent much too much time here this afternoon with figuring out backgrounds and such. :) I hope you all have a fabulous week!!

My doodle Day 3! There is too much that I love to choose one. These are a few of the (purely things that I love. ^_^ 

And a hilarious quote from the one and only fabulous Captain Jack Sparrow!! xD <3 <# 

My new coat! It came in the mail Yesterday! I was so excited! :D :D 

Mwuahahahaha!!! A Rabid little Baby Monster!!! It is like four inches tall! xD Me and my brothers found these last night when we stopped for drinks on the way home from church. xD It is amazing, no? :D That. Is definitely Friday morning's  drink. hehehe. I luvz it. 

Luvz u all! Pray for me and my family as we try to get over this ghastly cold that's going around. :P

Under Construction!

Hey people!
I just wanted to let you all know that I am changing my blog around. I will be changing the background prolly over and over to see what I like. I'll post again when I finally decide on one that I love and that might be next week sometime. :D lol. So whatever happens to be on when you see it next most likely won't be what I am sticking with. hehe <3 <3

Happy valentines day!!

I love Valentines day. I have heard people say that they hate it, or that they don't care but maybe they will when they have a boyfriend/husband...I don't have either and I think that Valentines day is a fantastic holiday! Here is a great quote from my Sis-in-law, Jenna from earlier today. :D

"Ok if you are single...stop being so selfish...find a person that is special to you and make them your Valentine! C'mon we have all been there once or twice...I always used to make my niece and nephew's my valentines! Um they are single too...and can't help it if they are just young. There is my Holiday rant. lol" 

Haha!! Isn't that great? hehe. It made me giggle.
My Mum put together an awesome nacho buffet with Brownies and Ice Cream for our Valentines dinner and My mum and my dad gave all us kids darling little Valentine notes with candy and goodies. :D They are so sweet. ^_^

b'sides all that. I have been deathly ill the past few days. Well, Maybe not deathly...I've had some headaches and a sore throat and a cough. :D I think I'll live. lol. Anyways, It hasn't been so bad except that I am behind on school now because I have been to sick to do any. And I missed the snow.
It snowed here yesterday! Not enough to cover the ugly brown grass in the yard, but it was snow anyways. This afternoon it all melted and now it is just cold and muddy outside. *sigh* I hate cold and muddy. If I had my choice on what weather it would be all the time, it would be 78-80 degrees most of the time with a few 64-68 days so that I can wear a hoodie. ^_^ Wouldn't that be amazing??
I still haven't gotten around to my Day 3 doodle. I think I'll do that tomorrow. :D I haven't decided what I'm gonna do for it yet...
this might be the most boring post ever, but I figured I'd write one anyways cos I haven't in a while and cos I don't have any emails to reply to! lol. That is unusual.
I am looking for a new background for my blog. I am really horrid at making decisions though. It'll prolly take me forever to actually find one I like after trying 6 or 7 different ones. lol.
ok this is dumb. I prolly shouldn't post it cos it's so boring but I will anyways. Blargh.

crazy weekend...

I haven't been home since 7:30 yesterday morning...
It's been crazy.
Friday we left the house early, as usual, for orchestra. It was only a few of us. Me, Mum, Micah, and Jonnah. The little kids and Dean stayed home with colds. It was a long day....The sky was grey and drizzly, The nursery smelled funny, and my Monster refused to kick in. *sigh* It got better though around class time when I finally got out of the nursery with a few minutes to spare to hang out with my friends. ^_^ Class went well...Pretty much it was a blah-ish day. lol.
That evening Jonnah and I went home to spend the night at Jo and Q's helping Jo and Tabbi finish the decorations for a baby shower that Jo was hostessing for her bestie (Tabbi's big sister.). 
We finished cutting and gluing and stringing and tying and sticking and baking by about 12 then went to bed. Saturday morning we were all up by 6:30 and we got dressed for the party and fell to cooking and putting together a jillion breakfast burritos while we listened to the Rat Pack and sang along. We were epic fast and finished them all and actually got out the door by 8:30 like we had planned!! :D The shower was beautiful and it all went really great. :)
Tonight is out church's couples night out for Valentines day, So A bunch of the couples are at Panera having a blast. :D  I am babysitting my Neices, 'Lish and 'Laina, and my Nephew, Nedward while Josh and Ty are out. They are all sound asleep now. Leah is watching a movie in the other room. It is nice in here.
The Sunshine came out today...<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 
I'm listening to Buble sing "You Don't Know Me."*sigh* So sweet and sad. <3 "Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by. A chance that you might love me too."  I feel like falling asleep and dreaming of something beautiful....

P.S. Sorry about the lack of a picture...I'm not on my usual computer so I don't have any. :) <3

Do you want to laugh?

Yes, Adorable little giraffe. It most certainly is. xD 

I always want to laugh. And this made me laugh my face off. Maybe that is dumb. lol. But I love it. So I decided to share a laugh with you on yet another Sunless day in Missouri! :D <3 <3 I hope you giggle.

doodles and life!

here are my first two doodles that I did for The Sailors Doodle Challenge! :D lol. Feel free to laugh! I don't consider myself an artist. xD
Day 1! This is me. Well, sorta. lol! <3

Day 2!
And here is my bestie! <3 She is so gorgeous. I couldn't draw her pretty enough so I got as close as I could with my lack of artistic skillz. xD ^_^ <3 <3

I don't think I posted the actual challenge that the Sailor put together, but here are the rules if you want to join us!!! ^_^ 

Day 1: Doodle yourself! 
Day 2: Doodle your best friend! 
Day 3: Doodle something you love! 
Day 4: Doodle your favorite quote! 
Day 5: Doodle something you want to change in the world!
Day 6: Doodle something from History! 
Day 7: Doodle your favorite pair of socks!
:D Yup.
So yesterday all us girls (Mum, Me, Jonnah, Leah, and Jeri.) + Ethan got to do some shopping at the mall! Mom had a Chiro appointment so we just went before. I am broke and didn't find anything that I had to have bad enough to borrow money for but Jonnah found some great stuff! We had a blast. :) <3 It did make for more school than usual today though 'cause I had some catching up to do. That wasn't so bad though. The only bad part was Algebra. uuughhhh......oh well. 
It has been such a dreary day...kinda lazy. It's been really cold out with dark, low clouds covering up the sunshine...I wish there was rain. I love Summer rainstorms when it is warm outside and you can just go sit in the rain and hear the soft thunder rumbling in the distance...ok. Yeah. Rambling. 
I can't wait for Summer to come back. :) 
I'm sorry this is a short post! But it is dinner time and dad needs the computer. <3!! 
Luv2uAll!! <3 <3

Tagged again and Concertino by O. Rieding...

P.S. I'm sorry about the strange color and font on this post O.o I think it is because I copied the questions and it didn't change fonts when I pasted and I don't know how to fix it. lol. :P

P.P.S I know a "P.S. at the beginning of the post isn't very normal, but I put it at the end then decided that I would say it before my strangely fonted post. xD lol. <3 

Hello Again!
So, I was tagged in another quiz this week by Mel over at Crazy Rants! She has a fantastic blog. It is one of my faves. :D Anyways, Here are my answers. 

1. Someone walks up to you and tells you that you can go to the moon on a NASA mission for free, without any astronaut training. What do you say? OMGSH!

2. You go over a friend’s house for dinner, and they are serving stuffed peppers that taste and look like dog food. When the person asks you how it is, what do you tell them? - um... How 'bout this weather??  

3. What would you rather swim in an entire pool of? Orange soda or Maple Syrup? - Orange Soda. I hate the way maple syrup smells. xP 

4. So let’s say your in a dressing room in a clothing store, and on the hook thingie on the back of the door there’s a camera bag with a camera inside. The owner could be long gone by now… but what do you do? -Ask around...Then feel bad for whoever left their camera there, then idk wat I would do. lol. 

5. What would you rather swim in an entire pool of? Sour Cream or Honey Mustard salad dressing? -Sour cream!!! xD I hate honey mustard, but Sour Cream would be fun to swim in. ^_^ 

6. You’re house is on fire. What’s the first thing you grab? (other than living things like people and animals and such) -My violin. Probably. or photo albums. 

7. A package suddenly mysteriously arrives on your doorstep one day, without a return address and a sticker that says: “THIS SIDE UP”. You open it. Inside is a real live penguin. What do you do now? -Squeal and try to convince my parents to let me keep a penguin. <3 

8. What would you rather swim in an entire pool of? Grape Juice or Raw Eggs? (yup. I said eggs.) -Eggs could be fun. As long as they were store eggs and didn't smell bad. Grape juice would be boring. 

9. Your best friend invites you to go see a movie with her, but you everything you believe goes against what this film is about. What do you say? - I say that I'm not going to see that movie because everything I believe goes against it. lol. I wouldn't stop her from going, though, if her authorities had given her permission. 

10. What would you rather swim in an entire pool of? Baby Food or Lava? (if the lava wasn’t painfully hot) -ooh!! Lava!! I have always wanted to swim in lava. for real. It looks so fantastic to play in doesn't it? The fact that it is thousands of degrees hot is what has stopped me. Well, That, and I've never been around Lava....

11. Your friend is over your house and while you’re in the middle of having a conversation with her, she pulls out her phone and begins texting right in front of you. What do you do now? -Be silent, and look right at her in a kinda shocked state. I think she might get the picture....

Once again. I can't tag. lol. I don't know that many people who actually blog! lol. <3 

There are my answers! :) <3 Also, I am going to be doing a cute little Doodle Challenge that Kate from Dream Sailor posted. :D Her blog is also adorable! Anyways, It should be fun. ^_^ <3 I will be posting pictures I my doodles sometime. lol. <3 I am a terrible artist. :D 
I am so glad that it is finally Thursday. School has been a trial for me this week. :P I seem to be barely able to get all the days school done before 2 in the afternoon and usually I can finish either before or right after lunch. :) Anyways, we don't have school tomorrow because we have orchestra. <3 I love orchestra. I love playing my violin again!!! hehe. Earlier this week I just couldn't get it to sound clear at all. It was...kinda muddy. :P The sound just wasn't crystal. If you know what I mean. lol. Anyways, I was thinkin' that maybe I need new strings or something and mom was like "Have you cleaned your strings recently?" DUH!! LOL! I couldn't believe I hadn't thought of that. :D My mum is so smart. xD lol. My violin sounds gorgeous again and I have been practising like crazy. I am getting better with my federation piece. I am not worried about the difficulty of playing it, I am worried about having four pages worth of music to memorize in just a few weeks. 0_0. 
Here is the Youtube link to the song I am playing:

I am not playing the entire thing, I am playing up to 4:20 on that vid. :) It is a blast to play. It involves a lot of shifting and such. xD tooooo fun!!

My hands are cooold!! golly. I am going to post a few of my recent edits then grab some coffee and watch F-Troop with the kiddos. <3 <3

These are my three fave pairs of shoes. xD <3 

<3 <3 Luvluvzzzz!!! <3 <3
