Harvest of Friends Blog Party! and a Video


And now for 20 questions:
1. What is your favorite thing to snack on while you're blogging? Um....I don't usually eat while blogging, but if I did it would probably be chips! =)

2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without? Phones and Computers because then I couldn't keep in touch with all my friends from other states!

3. Beach, Mountains or Farm? I love mountains and beaches! But I live on a farm and totally love it...so I'd have to sat farm!

4. What's your least favorite chore/household duty? I really don't like cooking - but it doesn't kill me. I guess it is feeding those vicious chickens of ours! They fly up at your face and takes chunks out of your skin. They are annoying!

5. Who do people say you remind them of? Everyone says I have always looked like my Grandma. A few people told me I looked like Kiera Knightly but that isn't true! So yeah.

6. Prefer parties and socializing or staying at home with the fam? I love both. A party is awesome every now and then, but I love the thought of sitting with family when it is chilly out, drinking coffee, and talking!

7. What's your all time favorite movie? I like lots...Bleak House, Pride and Prejudice (the old one), North and South, the first Pirates of the Caribbean, National Treasure......goes on.

8. Do you sleep in your make up or remove it like a good girl every night? I only wear cover-up and I never wash it off...so

9. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn something that you've never had a chance to learn? If I have a hidden talent...it is still hidden! lol  Everything I have really wanted to learn I have tried (I think)

10. What's one strange thing you're really good at? Not sure, I am really good at singing and dancing around the house and not even realizing it. I notice more now becuase my sister points it out.

11. What first attracted you to your spouse? I will answer that when I am married. lol

12. What is something you love to smell? Being outside and smelling smoke from someone's fireplace! I love that! And coffee!

13. Tell something about you that you know irritates people. Not sure.....

14. When you have extra money (HA!) what's the first thing you think to do with it? Buy books! I love reading.

15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? Loud most of the time. If I get laughing too hard you can't hear it...I know it's weird.

16. Where is your favorite place to shop?Barnes and Nobles!
17. What's one thing you'd do more often if you had more time? Be outside with our animals! I really wish I did that more. =)

18. Are you a big spender or frugal? I can be frugal if I am saving up for something...otherwise I am a spender.

19. Who is your favorite character of all time (from a movie or book)? I have no idea! WAY too many

20. Would you want to be famous? I would like to be known on my violin, but never so famous I can't walk out the door.

YAY! I did it.

Here is the most amazing video ever! You'll love it!

Pictures Coming Soon...

Hello Everyone!
We had a wonderful time in Florida! I hope to post pictures soon. We saw lots of jellyfish, a few sting rays, and my mom saw a shark. The jellyfish are so hard to see that I walked right into one and got stung! That didn't feel very nice.

Also, I have had my blog for over a year now! =)

A Funny Video

How Long Was a Day in Genesis?

Some people say that God made the earth using Evolution. "We don't know how long a day was."
Well, I have been reading a book called 'Dismantling the Big Bang' by Alex Williams and John Hartnett. It has really good explanations on why a day in Genesis is the same as a day now. Please comment and tell me what you believe. =)

"Genesis 1 clearly states that God created the universe in six ordinary-length days. While the word 'day' has a variety of possible meanings, the meaning intended by an author is always specified by the context. The context of Genesis 1 is 'evening and morning, one day'. The author clearly intended the word to mean an ordinary-length day. The Ten Commandments, which God wrote down with His own finger in stone, confirm this conclusion. The Fourth Commandment says that the Israelites were to observe the Sabbath as a memorial to the fact that God created the universe in six days."

" God's stated reason for creating the universe in six days was to give man a convenient time scale to commemorate and celebrate His person and work of creation. If this time scale is expanded billions of years, it makes nonsense of the Fourth Commandment."

Let me know what you think!

Simple Woman's Day Book #2

Sorry I haven't been on in a while! Nothing has been going on. And since I have nothing to post I will just do a Simple Woman's Day Book. =D


For Today: August 7, 2009

Outside my window: Have no idea

I am thinking about: Horses! Dad gave Syd and I permission to get some...right now we are saving our money. =)

I am thankful for: lots of things

I am reading: A book on Amelia Earhart (kind of boring)

I am hoping: To make money!

I am upset about: My 2nd favorite goat dying

I am creating: Nothing

I am hearing: The air conditioner and Sydney eating

Around the house: Syd is eating something and...nothing else really

One of my favorite things: HORSES!

What I accomplished today: Falling down the steps on our porch. There is actually a funny story behind it. I found somebodies braces (I am not joking) on the ground. I thought that was really strange and I had a great idea! I would go tell Mom that my braces "fell off". So I went inside to put a book down and went to go find Mom and fell down the steps, skinned up my arm, and lost the braces.

I'll post the Behind The Scenes Video soon.

What Is Going On?

Mom took our car into a shop this morning and it ends up the head gasket (I think that is what they called it) is messed up (cracked or something). In other words, we are stuck in Iowa and are trying to figure out what to do. I guess the real thing we are trying to decide is if we want to get it fixed or just buy a new car that will get us back home. *sigh* We all want to get home!
I really want to get home because my dog is losing tons of weight because she won't eat or drink. Dad took her to the vet and he didn't find anything wrong with her. (I do want to go home because I miss Dad too. lol)

My voice is a little better today and kind of worse! I can talk more but it is very high pitched and sounds ridiculous so I don't know if that is better or worse...


Here's video of my cousin Sam riding Justina's horse. It's funny because he falls off after getting smashed into a fence!





That's all for now!

Leaving for Home and Ending Up Where We Started

We left for Georgia early this morning hoping to get home around 6:00p.m. Well, we were only on the road for an hour when our car overheated and started smoking. It was still dark out and there wasn't a gas station in sight so we had to park on the shoulder and let our car cool. Thirty minutes later we started again only to have to same thing happen! We pulled into a grocery store (which just happened to be closed) and walked to a gas station to get coolant (?). Well, that only worked for a few minutes so we ended up being towed to a car shop and having the car worked on. After two hours of waiting in the lobby we were told our car was ready. So we got in and again headed for Georgia only to have our car overheat after going only two miles! We got it back to the shop and went back into the lobby. We waited and waited and waited...Finally Mom went to see what was going on and everyone had left for lunch and didn't tell us! They just let us sit there thinking someone was working on our car the whole time!
Anyway, our aunt came and picked us up and we went to AutoZone and a lady there worked on our car and we thought she fixed it. We followed our aunt for ten miles and guess what? we overheated again! So we got towed again - this time all the way to my aunts house. *sigh*
We won't be leaving until Tuesday now -IF our car is fixed Monday.
And to make things even worse I haven't been able to talk all day! Actually, I can whisper but Syd laughs every time so yeah.... I am mute! And it is very frustrating!!!!!!!!!!
Well, that was our stressing day!

I will edit this post someday....I don't have the time or energy to do it now.

Funny Videos

Wow! Two posts in 1 day! That's a first for me!

Dancing Clowns
#1 My aunt and uncle are singing in this


#2 My cousin is playing the violin


On our way to Nebraska we were bored and I thought it would be funny to pull a joke on Austin (a cousin) and I video-taped it. Here it is!



More videos coming soon. =)

Nebraska!

Hello Everyone,
We just got back from Nebraska. Here are some pictures....they are not in any order.
Enjoy!


My cousin Justina, Me, and Justina's friend Susan
(This was taken right after we got there.)


Justina and I

We were on our way to the fair grounds where we were going to perform and watch the Wild Horse Ministries (wildhorseministries.com) work with a horse. We were only performing there because it was our uncle who set it up and he and all his family were performing and he asked us to too. (I have no idea how to word that so that's good enough!)


This was taken on our way home (I told you they are not in order).
We had to drive through a bad storm.

At one point we had to pull over and wait out the storm.

We have videos that I will post soon. (It looked a lot worse in real life.)


Our cousin B.J. taking a picture of Syd taking a picture of him


Syd got pictures of the boys right after they woke up! I'll be dead if they ever see these.
This is B.J.


Aaron


Unfortunately, Sam looked normal.


This is Windy their miniature pony. She liked my coffee cup.

I don't think she liked the coffee!


Me and Justina




I only like this picture because I look taller than her!


Justina's horse Bandit. I rode him a lot, but we don't have any pictures of that...just videos.

I only uploaded this picture because I thought it was Justina, but I realized it is me because of my ring.
