Please Read + Define That Word

Hi everyone!

My ‘please read’ ( 😛 ) is a question:

Do I post too much?

I was going to only post twice a week, but I like posting a lot and my Mom said she thinks I should post everyday. What do you think?

Also, I am entering Enni’s poetry contest (check this out as well). It’s awesome it’s awesome it’s awesome, so please check it out! 🙂 Btw you guys probably didn’t know I write poetry. *mysterious look* Well I actually don’t lol. Well sort of. I didn’t write poetry and then I think two years ago I took a massive interest to poetry in that that’s all I wrote, and then I stopped it, and now I’m entering this contest. XD I’m not very good at it and I don’t expect to win, but it’s good fun. 😉

Well, on to Define That Word!

Define that


For those of you who don’t know what Define That Word is, it is…

a game I made

fun

basically defining words

How it will work|

Before I tell you, people who have already done this, please read it again in case I’ve changed a few things.

  1. I will give you a couple of (usually four) made up words for you to define.
  2. You will define the words in the comments.
  3. After about a week, I will post some polls with all the defenitions to each word.
  4. You guys will vote.
  5. When I have enough votes, I will post the results.
  6. There will be winners for each best definition, and one overall winner for the most votes for all of the words.
  7. The winners will receive a button to put on their sidebar and the overall winner will receive a button as well as a chance to do a guest post on this blog. (if you don’t want to do a guest post, you don’t have to. I may choose someone else to do it if not. Don’t worry! You don’t have to share your email to do it)
  8. I’ve decided as well that I’m not going to approve your defenitions till the end so that people don’t copy (now there is no need for rules).

Rules|

Oh look there are still rules I’m so mean.

  1. You may submit up to three defenitions for each word.
  2. When voting for best defenitions, you may vote for your definition only if you actually think it is the best.
  3. You can only vote once.
  4. Your definitions cannot be anything inappropriate, or anything that doesn’t honor-God.

There was another rule, but I forgot it… if I remember it, I’ll tell you. 🙂

Ok!

The made-up words|

  1. Deboon (deh-boon)
  2. Kenpies (ken-pise, NOT ken-pees)
  3. Meezies (mee-zees)
  4. Depontiee (de-pon-shee)

Wow Zielle, those were totally weird. I wish you luck coz’ those words are haaaard! XD

chat with me!

What are your defenitions? |Do you think this is a good idea? |What have you been up to?

Please read!!!!!

Hi everyone! I don’t really know Sam, but please help me pray for her and her family. She and her family are going through hard times and I know they would appreciate any prayers they can get. Sam is a such a brave person and very inspirational. ❤ If you will join me in praying for her, please comment with a love heart. ❤ Thank you so much, everyone! I know this post isn’t scheduled and that means I’ll have three posts in one day, but I just had to re-blog this. Thank you again!!

Beezus the Bear

Hi guys! This is actually not Beezus, this is her owner/human/aunt Sam. Sooooo Beezus let me write this on her blog, so let’s get started.

Appreciate your family and friends but mostly your family. One day your parents won’t be there anymore. My father has Parkinson’s disease so my mom does pretty much everything. My 18 year old sister I actually call Mini Mom because that’s exactly what she is to me. My dad has a lot of issues but we all still love him so very much. Today the doctors called my mom back with the results from her test. She has cancer. It spread from her chest all over her. The longest she will live is at the most another year.

I’m not trying to make you feel sorry for me, Beezus and I are just trying to say enjoy it while it lasts.

Thanks everyone for the questions and everyone else for 30 followers! (now 42!!) 🙂 That was fun.

And now for the draft I didn’t get to post. It was around two days ago.


Yesterday I made some slime. It’s basically stuff you can play with and it’s… slimy. My brother loves making them and I decided to make my own.

20170723_172502-e1500869970994.jpg

It didn’t exactly turn out the way I wanted it. I liked the color and the fact that it wasn’t actually really slimy and runny, but it was also brittle. When you squeezed it it would crack. I also figured out you can cover your finger with slime and stick it in the fire and you won’t get burnt unless you keep it in the flame for too long.

20170724_134046 (2)

My brother made that green slime the day before yesterday. I was trying to make it like that because it was so stretchy and you could squeeze it like a stress ball. Which is why I’m squeezing it right now because it feels good and I’m so stressed right now.

Because I’m trying to make a fairy doll and yesterday I bought floral stem wire so that I could make it I also had already bought some wooden beads for the head. But the hole was only half way through which meant I’d have to drill a hole all the way through. So today, I discovered that our drill is in my Dad’s bus (van) in his toolbox. So no drill. No hand drill either. But we had a chisel in the house, and the hole in the bead was big so I stuck it in and began turning it around inside the hole to try and make it all the way through. No success for the next fifteen minutes. So I trooped outside to see if we had maybe a hand drill with some luck. All I found were some screws. I took one back inside and took out our cutting mat in case I accidentally punctured our buffet. I tried to fit the chisel into the nail so I could maybe use it as a hand screw driver. But it was so wobbly so I gave that up and used my fingers to screw it in.

20170724_130940 (2)

The nail fell on the carpet so I just lay on my tummy and tried to screw it in the bead with my fingers again. *sigh* I took the bead and nail back onto the buffet and began hammering it in with the end of the chisel.

20170724_131054 (2)
Thanks to my Mom who took this photo ❤

Then my brother found me a big hammer so I used that to smash the nail into the bead. It was working!

20170724_131454

Then I tried to use the chisel to screw the nail in but it wouldn’t fit in very well and it kept coming out so I went back to hammering.

For the past hour I continued to think it was working until I looked down at the nail to see if it was working and saw that it wasn’t going any deeper.

But oh well. That was fun! 😉

Oh and you can make some slime by watching this video. He starts making the slime at 40 secs. 🙂


Smile, and God bless!

Photos I should have shared with you ages ago but didn’t {Photo Dump}

Hi everyone! Sorry for the scrappy featured image. 😛 It was taking too long and I wanted to post this. XD

All these photos were taken a while ago; last summer, early last year before we moved and a couple weeks ago when we went rafting. My Mom took nearly all these photos. Thanks, Mom! ❤

Us inspecting the little ‘whirlpool’ in our ‘creek’ last year before we moved:

 

The rain water filling up our dam:

 

We had just come home from grocery shopping in town and our driveway was filled with rain water at the bottom. We stopped at the entrance and waded:

20161004_165059_1501123907993

20161004_165102_1501123908093

We ended up splashing each other and then just sitting in the water. It was freezing but really fun:

 

We had around seven almond trees and we used to pick them green and eat them with salt. Sometimes we tried to wait for them to ripen, but the cockatoos and the other birds always got them first:

This was last Summer. My brother and I were wading and trying to catch some fish with no success: (we had already moved)

And that’s the end of the photos! Thanks for reading. 🙂

Also, I’m so caught up with all my posts. I’m doing a guest post interview with Starling and I also need to post the Q&A. I’ll post it later today if you don’t mind two posts in one day. 🙂

Smile and God bless!

chat with me!

Favorite photo? | Do you like sliding down hills on cardboard? (trust me, it’s fun!) |I think I need to change either what I say before my sign-off (Smile and God bless) or my sign-off, because I say ‘Smile’ in both of them. What? I love smiling! 😉 | Did you enjoy this post?

What I Did In English + Photos

Ok so my Mom and I are doing a book called ‘Writing From The Inner Self’. Personally, it annoys me. Before I start writing, I have to sit still with my back away from the back of my chair, my feet on the floor and I have to concentrate. That’s the annoying part. And then when I get into writing it’s good. 😉 I think I just don’t want to admit it’s helping me concentrate. Don’t tell my Mom that! 😛

My Mom likes everything I write. (I love my Mom! She puts up with me!) Even when I write my rantings about how much I dislike the book. (Actually now I like it a little) So I asked her to give me tips on how to write something she won’t like. And then I asked her if she wouldn’t like it if I wrote a story with lovable characters and she would fall in love with the characters and then I’d kill them all. She sat there for a moment and then said she wouldn’t like that. Now I know! 😉

The exercise for today was to imagine a beautiful place in nature and to notice the things around you and the time of day and season. Then imagine sitting down and noticing where you chose to sit and then imagine an action happening and after the action you stand up and walk back the way you came and notice what you can hear and see and see if anything is different from when the action occurred. And we’re also not supposed to edit anything or stop writing. I think I did a couple times though. 😛 The following is what I wrote: (Sentences with *’s I edited just now)

I trudge up the hill slowly, my bare feet digging into the soft green grass. I take time to notice my surroundings; a bunny hopes past me. The wind blows gently, making the daisies around me sway. I spin around and run all the way up the hill, the grass a carpet at my feet. I look around and sit down once I reach the top. The sun is shining and a couple clouds dot the sky. A pond is to my right, *ducks paddling their webbed feet through the babbling water.* Birds *sing songs*in the heavens and butterflies flit around me. *One lands on my finger. I laugh.*

Suddenly, I hear an old vintage car rattle across the old dirt road behind me. I sigh and lie down. After a few moments, I stand up. A bunny is just peeking out of a burrow, wondering if the old noisy thing has passed. I walk back down the hill. The birds are gone now frightened by the car. But soon they fly into view again. And the butterflies are once again lazing on a dandelion or flitting around the meadows. I continue to walk down the hill and the bunnies are still coming our of their holes after the car has passed.

The action: The old vintage car rattling across the road

What changed after the action: When I walked up the hill and sat down the bunnies and birds and butterflies were already out. When I walked back down the hill, the animals were just coming back out because of the noise of the car.

Also, here are a few photos:

A couple weeks ago we went to the funeral service of an old friend near the place we used to live. Afterwards, we visited our old place and my Mom took a couple pictures of my brother and I rafting on our dam. Wow, I miss that place!

20170629_145240
We also used to catch yabbies here… All the ones we caught died though. 😦
20170629_145304
We had a rope connecting the raft to a tree just in case we couldn’t row back… My brother was using a pitchfork to row!
2017-07-26 18.43.17.jpg
My two older brothers and my Dad built this raft years ago. It’s sort of falling apart. It still holds us though if we stand on the middle boards that are popping up. Also, my brother has a hat and mustache because I wanted to cover his handsome face.

I hope you enjoyed that piece of writing and photos! 🙂 See you later.
