Who’s a lovely boy? He is!
(For the record, I enjoyed it when Paul Ryan referred to his daughter as a “bean”.)
Oh my, it is exams week here at my school. Ugh Ugh Ugh!
I am so lacking creativity right now, it’s ridiculous.
What have I to blog about?
Oh! But my little sister is a Birthday Bean today! I am going to go downstairs soon and make her pupcakes (which are pretty much cupcakes, only better).
Also, here is a quote for the Winnie-ther-Pooh books:
Piglet: “Supposing it was Fierce with Pigs, would it make any difference if the Pig has a grandfather called TRESPASSERS WILLIAM?”
Ah… I dearly love the Winnie-ther-Pooh books.
Well, like every year, we went out shopping yesterday (don’t worry, no one got maced 🙂 ). we got some nice treats, things to set aside for Christmas (which, by the way, we will be spending at my grandparents’ house–yay!).
You know, I really don’t know where I’m going with this post. But, I have something I want to share that I think will maybe make you guys feel more happy with your lives–it made me, for sure.
While I was out shopping yesterday, in Grand Rapids, I saw a man on a corner where there was a man standing. He was holding a sign–I didn’t get to read the whole thing (we were in the car driving, see)–but, it said “Three Children, lost job…” and it just made me feel so sad for that man.
I thought about him the rest of the time while we were shopping, how he wouldn’t be doing holiday shopping, how his kids wouldn’t be getting any grand presents for Christmas or whichever holiday they celebrated…It just made me feel more grateful for what I have.
So, I want to add another thing to my “What I’m Thankful List”:
12.) Having what I have.
Wowzers, it’s Thanksgiving again! So many things to be thankful for…Here’s a list of mine:
1.) the re-election of President Obama
2.) my friends, particularly my new friend, who helped me to stay happy
3.) my family, and being able to come down state and visit them for this holiday
4.) my father having a job, when so many people don’t
5.) my stay-at-home mom, who knows me and my siblings better than she could’ve if she wasn’t stay-at-home
6.) my blog and my dear readers
7.) my quirky and lovely cats, Noodle and Snowbelle
8.) while I am sitting on the couch in my grandparents’ house and watching the Macy’s Day parade, I am thankful for the fact that those types of things (the broadway-like dancing and singing) are no longer obsolete, what with all the technology we have nowadays
9.) the wonderful meal I will be eating in a few hours
10.) my school district being able to afford such extensive programs in visual and performing arts, in which I participate through the symphony orchestra
11.) the Internet
There are plenty of other things I am thankful for, but now I am going to help out in the kitchen.
I wish all of you to very best Thanksgiving!
Well, my blogger-friend Rarasaur created a rather fun thing for today–Label Day! I was so happy to participate, here is my label:
Whoo Hoo! For other blogggers who participated and gave a photo of them wearing a label, check out Rarasaur’s post at http://rarasaur.wordpress.com/2012/11/21/bloggers-celebrate-label-day/
Have a good day! 🙂
Now, dearies, I am going to recount a story to you, straight from my life.
Are you ready?
Okay, here we go:
So, last week at school, during lunch, my friend and I had gone to the vending machine to get a snack. Now, if you know me, you are aware that my eyes are especially trained, seemingly, to find pennies and other loose change on the ground (“I have special eyes” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aixKm9DahDA ). Well, with my Special Skills, I spotted two pennies on the floor of the cafeteria, straight by the vending machine.
I know, this is getting good, right? 😀
I picked up the first one I spotted, and triumphantly put it in my jeans pocket. The second penny, though–well, it was in more of a Difficult State of Being. You see, it was on the floor at the very back of the vending machine, in the maybe-five-inch-wide cranny between the two juxtapose vending machines.
My friend who was with me told me not to get it at that moment (for, I had every intention of retrieving that lonely penny right that instant). She said to wait, and that we’d get it after school during writing club on Tuesday of next week (as in, today–this happened last Thursday).
Today was writing-club day, so my other friend and I went down to the vending machines to retrieve the penny. I got right down on my knees and, with a pen in hand, reached back into that aforementioned cranny between the two vending machines.
I was successful!
Here is a Commemorative Photo of that moment:
wowzers, look at the award I just won!
I am so proud of myself. Thanks to Rarasaur! (rarasaur.wordpress.com)
Okay, so here are the questions I am supposed to
Well, that was fun!
I am sorry, I can’t really give the award to others, as I don’t really know anyone in the Blogosphere. But, you know, I could give it to my friend at spoonhumping.wordpress.com. Though she’s super-new, I think she has great potential! So, there you go, Courtney, you get the award!!
Yay, and thanks again to Rarasaur!
