Want to hear a long song? "Looooooooooonnnnnnnnnggggggggg..."

I am seriously pysched! The day after tomorrow, Monday, I, The Authoress shall be departing for summer camp! This is the first time I have actually gone so I'm super-excited yet scared at the same time. I don't know if anyone there will talk to me, I won't know anyone there but my older siblings. What made things more nerve-wracking was when my little sis came home with an injury. I've been praying that I won't goof up and end up hurting myself...truth be told, the idea of landing in the hospital terrfies me! But I know, besides my siblings I will not be alone.

I am nearly done with "The Red Siren"! You see, while I have been preparing for camp, my mom has rushed me to finish "The Red Siren" before I leave for camp, see it's a library book. So yeah. I'm surprised at myself. I do say so myself this book has been very exciting. But it's only the first in the Charles Towne Belles series, so I've got a long way to go.

I managed to get some packing done. I am using the same red duffel bag my little sis used for camp. I've fitted everything in it: My new red swimsuit, swimsuit cover-up, towel, clothes, my pink flashlight, my pink notebook(yes I obviously like pink, lol) along with a pen, bugspray, sunscreen, ponytail holders, nail polish(yes I cannot go anywhere without it), and a couple of books. I am also bringing good ol' Clifty dog to keep me company.

Among my list of things I've done today, I got to watch Disney's "The Little Mermaid" today(I have convinced my mom to rent Disney movies thru Netflix, knowing the freak I am). I forgot how much I loved that movie. It's my favorite next to "Beauty and the Beast", "Mulan", and especially "Tangled". Ariel is so pretty! I seriously love the way her hair moves in the water. At the part near the end when she said "I love you daddy" to her dad, I nearly teared-up. That part has always been touching to me. On my wedding day years from now, I want to hug my dad and say the same thing.

I need to run along now. Pip pip cheerio!

Picture Post!

Today is a picture post of my toys! Yes, go ahead and say it. I'm 13 but I still play with dollies. I'm still posting them thoough!

Those aren't toys, those are my clip-on earrings I got during day camp. They look very pretty no?

Above are my darling webkinz, Pat(the cocker spaniel) and Lucy(the white terrier). I've had Pat of 2009. He was a gift from my grandma. And Lucy, well I got her with my own money to save my account. Anyways, they are both very cute and I love collecting toy animals.

Oh yes, which brings me to my favorite animal. My old pal Clifty whom I have had since I was three, he was a gift from someone at church. He was there for me during the tough times as a toddler. I cuddled him when I had nightmares. He was my best friend. I named him after Clifford the Big Red Dog.

Above you an see my lovely(yet blurry) collection of Barbies. Here are each them in better photos:

This is Liana. She was actually my second Barbie doll, you see I used to have Mariposa but she had a tragic accident. I got Liana for my 11th birthday in 2009, and she actually is a princess from Diamond Castle. But I misplaced her gown so I just put this awesome outfit on her. Her hair is always mess so it's always in a ponytail. So um yeah.

My next doll is Rapunzel. Yes she has her gown, I have not misplaced it, my little sis has it on one of her Barbies. She was my third doll. I got her for Christmas of 2009. She is wearing a cute dress that came on one of my sister's dolls. Rapunzel is one of the prettiest Barbies and well I can't very well remember the reason why I wanted her. Maybe it was the hair...

Next is the lovely Miss Merliah Summers from Barbie in a Mermaid Tale! I really wanted her because her surfer outfit can change into a mermaid tale and I can take her into the swimming pool with me. Her hair even has pink highlights and is currently in a ponytail. I like the movie as much as the doll, so yeah.

My last doll is Ellen Hopkins. She really didn't have a name til' I got her. I bought her with Christmas money from my grandma. Ellen is special to me because she's the first Barbie I ever bought myself. And she came with two great outfits. I LOVE the shoes.

So I guess those are all my dolls and animals. They are truely special to me in all ways. Oh one more thing before I depart, I'd like to wish my parents a happy anniversary!

Random Friday ramblings

Things are not really jumping around so I'll just be random.

My little sis has her stitches out. Hooray for her! There is only a scar left. I haven't seen it yet however, because well I stayed home pretty much the day.

My older brother had to go to a basketball game that finishes up his day camp. My older sis and dad went. I stayed home with my doggies. I listened to some music and watched a couple of movies. They were gone all day almost and got back at 3:30 something. My mom got me a small bag of cheetos, which I instantly munched on. Momzy got mad that I did.

Ok, now for the random stuff:

Today I'd like to share a favorite song of mine from Disney's "The Little Mermaid".

My dog Penny!
Darling Penny. :)


Rapunzel: Something brought you here Flynn Rider. Call it what you will--fate, destiny...
Flynn: *sarcastically* A horse.

I got a sleeping bag for camp and a swimsuit. I'm so pysched!

Days of Summer

If there is one thing I don't like about summer, tis' the heat. I did not say I enjoyed it, no, it is the no school time I enjoy. My favorite seasons are actually fall and spring. Not too hot and not too cold. But no, summer is too hot. I can hear my socks, sweaters and long sleeve shirts calling for me...I want some chilliness in the air.

Things have been moving at different paces so don't expect me to post alot. I've got things to do....oh well.

This is the list of fun things I've done so far this summer:

1. Jewlery and Cooking day camp
2. Ball game
3. 4-H
4. Tea party

And I still have to:

1. Go to summer camp.

Yes! I shall be departing for camp in a couple of weeks. No it is not another day camp, it's overnight. I'm extremely nervous but I have my older siblings coming with me for moral support. So anyways, my mom is taking us shopping for supplies this week maybe.

I'm already making plans for school...I have asked my mom to get a couple of study guides for literature in Language Arts, such as "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe" and "Witch of Blackbird Pond". I have only seen the movie for the Narnia book and I only got half way through "Witch of Blackbird Pond"(I had to give it back to the library). Let's see how good I can do in for Math this year I have Pre-algebra, which is said to be easy. I think not. Math is hard.

I have no idea what I shall be doing for Science, certainly not Biology however. I admit it: I am not the girl who likes to get her hands slimy. In other words, it's the dissecting that creeps me out. You will just have to get me a gas mask if I'm doing that. But thank the LORD I'm not doing Biology this year. My older sister is however, we'll just see how that goes.

I really don't have much to update younger sister gets her stitches out on Friday(yay for her!), my brother has basketball day camp this week, and I'm stuck at home. That gives me plenty of time to read though!

Before I go, I'd like to share part one of one of my favorite episodes from The Waltons: "The Foundling".

Books and Tea

Yesterday my sisters and I went to a tea party hosted by one of our friends(Angel at I had quite a lovely time. We played a couple of games, including Poor Pussycat and Pass the Teapot, both quite fun. Especially the teapot game, I laughed so hard I had to sit down. You see the whole jist of the game is that someone has to stand in the middle with their eyes closed while everyone else passes a little teapot around. When the person opens their eyes they have to guess who has the teapot. I was the culprit a couple of times. And if that person has it, it's their turn to be in the middle.

The treats at teatime were delicious(I especially loved the lemon bars). I've never actually tried warm tea before, but I must say for trying it the first time ever it tasted good. I must convince my mom to make some at home sometime.

I must say that afternoon passed rather quickly. We did get some pictures however, if you would like to see them, feel welcome to visit Angel's blog to take a look. And you'll see me in a few, just look for the girl wearing a pink dress and hair ribbon. Oh wait I'll share a picture right now:

I'm the taller girl wearing the pink dress(of course) and the girl in orange is my older sis.

Before we left, one of my other friends who was there let me borrow one of her books. It's called "Lady Carliss and the Waters if Moorue", book four in the Knights of Arrethrae series by Chuck Black(same guy who wrote Kingdom Series).  I do say I am throughly enjoying it. No I have not read the first three books, I'll get around to that another time.  Expect to see a review of this book once I have finished it. I can guarrantee you, it will be lengthy and high.

I must be running along now, fare thee well till tomorrow or whenever.

6-year-old cancer patient gets a royal hug

Here’s the news story:
“When Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, touched down at Calgary Airport yesterday, 6-year-old Diamond Marshall, her little head bald from her battle with cancer, ran up and threw herself right
into into her royal idol’s arms.”

I found this news story truely touching, this is the type of news they need to show nowadays. If you know anyone suffering from cancer or any other disease, share this story with them. Give them a hug to let you know they care as much as Princess Kate did for this little girl.

It's a Crazy World

Let me start off this entry by singing "Happy birthday" to my dear momzy.
Birthday Song
I'm not specifying how old she is, for she would not want me to do that, lol. Well she's already got her presents opened, I got her a pretty pair of sunglasses. My older sister got her a candy bar and my older brother got her a movie "The Patriot"(I personally like that movie myself). My younger sister didn't get her anything(she's at camp duh). My mom loved all her presents. It really made her day, because nothing but disaster has occured today.

Well the morning wasn't a disaster, but she did have to take me to a 4-H activity and my older sister to hospital volunteering. The 4-H activity I did was making t-shirts, I'm wearing one right now.

Now onto something horrible...while I was at home later today, we got a phone call from my mom(she was somewhere with daddy). She said she had gotten a call from my sister's summer camp. It seems this little buddy of mine cut her foot on something and had to go get stitches. EIGHT WHOLE STITCHES. Bug Eyed Ouch. Poor Sis(11). The bad news is, for two whole weeks, sister(11) has to hobble around on crutches with her foot all wrapped. Please pray for her speedy recovery. And pray that doesn't happen to me next month. Blushy

Well, I'm relaxing right now. Don't have much else to say, but here is part two of my mini Barbie movie:

The post without a title

My mind is in a fog right now, for all I am is tired.

My younger sis headed off to camp yesterday. I'm trying to picture what she is doing right now. Usually with her in the house it's kinda noisy. My ears are still trying to get used to the quiet, lol. But I miss her already and it's only been one day. But there's one thing I don't miss about her and that's her bad habit of humming random tunes all the time.

We went to the fireworks last night. But it was only me, my mom, and my older sister. My dad stayed home for some reason, my brother had to go to work(he was bummed out over that), and my younger sister was at camp.

We left at 7:30, for the fireworks started by 9:00 and we thought we could there on time. But we didn't actually. My mom accidentally went the wrong way and we got all turned around. Well finally we got there but guess what? THERE WAS NO PARKING SPACE IN SIGHT! I'm serious because I felt like crying, because while we were driving around we heard several booms and knew the fireworks had started. To make a long story short, we finally found a parking space and got to see the rest of the fireworks. I wasn't so upset then, because it's been like three years since I've actually gotten to see huge fireworks.

I'm alone right now, for my little buddy(I mentioned already) is at camp, my older sister is at hospital volunteering, and my brother...well he's kind of asleep. It's just me and the old cat Max, but he's no fun because all he does is sleep and eat. That beats him trying to claw my foot off a few nights ago. Word of advice: Never walk barefoot in front of a hyperactive cat.

Ok  I'm wide awake now....but my mind isn't. I need to go listen some music or something.

Plans for July 4th

So basically, on the fourth of July, my family will be having a cookout(probably at lunch), and then in the evening we shall be going to see fireworks. But my younger sister will not be attending with us, for she is going to summer camp next week.

So if you see my Yahoo avatar in a fireworks background, yes. But I'm not taking my dog with me, she'd probably bark at all the people and run off like she always does.

E is for Excited

Hi hi hi hi! Have I got a post to make? Why yes yes yes, I do. And I think I am playing the threes game.

Day camp is done. Wah. But I had a great time. And guess what? I've got some awesome clip-on earrings now! I even made a couple of pairs. Hey it's not that hard. It just takes a little while before you get it. I could even sometime give you gals a step-by-step process. But not now! I'd rather have pictures.

Well my day has been good so far. I had a delicious strawberry poptart for breakfast but yet again it insisted on popping out of the toaster RIGHT after I sat down on a comfy chair. But it's all worth it. I get milk and poptart for breakfast.

I've been on the computer mostly all day. On Shelfari, Goodreads, Homeschoolblogger, Youtube and now this. I shall be reading a few more chapters of "The Red Siren" later. But I feel upset, for yesterday a live online chat was going on with one of my favorite authors and I missed it! But hey, she's on Goodreads so I get to talk to her there. Awesome right? It still wouldn't be as fun as meeting them face to face though.

Later on at lunchtime, I laid things out for my grilled cheese sandwich, when suddenly a random song popped in my head and I started doing a jig, like this:

Of course, my serious sensible younger sister said I looked goofy. Man she needs to loosen up's ok to be a nut. I've been an insane dreamer my entire life. Anyways, my mom asked me what I was doing, so I said "Oh just dancing Mom!" and she was like "To what tune?". Yeah my mom is always doing that. I just told her it was some random tune I heard on the radio and started dancing again. Don't get me wrong, that is not the only time I've done that.

After lunch(or while I ate it), I brought up the instant Netflix system on the tv and watched an episode of my favorite cartoon "All Grown Up" which was shown on Netflix some years ago. It's a sequel to another show I like, I'll explain later.

Onto entertainment purposes, have ya'all heard about the new Disney movie coming out in 2012?

Eeeeee it looks so awesome! I so want to see this when it comes out. Do you not know the story plot? Well here it is:

Set in Scotland in a rugged and mythical time, "Brave" features Merida, an aspiring archer and impetuous daughter of royalty. Merida makes a reckless choice that unleashes unintended peril and forces her to spring into action to set things right.
(Source: IMDB)

It sounds awesome as well! I can tell it's going to be a great movie.

Right now I am watching Return of the King(third in LOTR trilogy). And one of their stars is celebrating her thirty-fourth birthday! Give up?
Yes, it is Arwen! Or Liv Tyler, which is her real name. I do remind you once again, she has turned 34! But she is looking as gorgeous as ever. Happy birthday Arwen/Liv!
