Working away!

 I almost started to do a "Lately I've been..." post, but I can't bring myself to do it. Everyone does that when they don't know what to say on their blog. (By the way, I can see why.. haha). First off, I want to thank everyone who passed my tag around. It has been really exciting watching other bloggers post on what they do to beat Winter boredom! In fact, there has already been an new tag "born" from mine. :) Shall we say awesome? Oh yeah. Then something even more amazing than beating Winter boredom happened...I don't have to beat it right now! ALL of the snow we had melted! Though...these pictures are not exactly what it looks like outside at the moment..it is a bit browner..and colder. Oh well. I guess I'll just try and get more up-to-date photos next time. *grin*



How are you enjoying your weekend??? I almost set my alarm to wake me up for school last night, but then I remembered....tomorrow was Saturday! (Now today. ;) ) I almost did the happy dance! haha.. I was able to read a bit more that evening and then snuggle down for a morning without "beep beep". I've spent most of the day working with my dad and sister on our new home project; putting in laminate flooring! Quite an adventure, but one worth the memories. :) I can hardly wait for the restful Sunday ahead!

What is your alarm clock set to? (Music or the loud beeping?) I usually have music, but I think I need  to switch it because I don't wake up enough before I hit the snooze button..haha!
What kind of home projects do you do with your family?
How do you feel about weekends? (I'm sure I know your answer for this one)

  2. Hehe, I haven't gotten around to quite doing the tag yet. But I haven't forgotten! I'm just waiting to compile into one nice post :)
    lol, I don't set an alarm for school, rather my mom wakes me up. Which is quite sad at times, mainly in the early mornings. Personally I think I'd rather sleep in a little than go to school at eight o clock. :) But i guess being home schooled doesn't pose that problem? I dunno, when I was home schooled my mom still woke me, so i guess it wasn't much of a difference :P
    How do I feel about weekends? My friend, I believe you know the answer to this one! They are quite possibly the highlight of my entire week! (well, sometimes.... good stuff does happen during the week.) But it is nice to have a relaxing weekend every now and then. Not this weekend, or the next, but the next one (did that make sense? like the weekend before Christmas) that Friday I have a program to attend, and it'll probably get late, the next day I have one of my friend's sister's wedding to attend, where i have a job so I have to be there early, and after the wedding, I need to get to church for the program there. So I think that that weekend will be quite busy. :D Wow that was long. Alas, my comment is becoming like a post. OK, well, ummm... :D What do you plan on doing for Christmas?

    1. Woah! Look at this awesome comment! :D Don't worry about the tag; I totally understand that you don't always want to be posting tags on your blog. :) I do that sometimes too. My Mom woke me up for a while, and personally that works best.. ;) But! When I started making my own school schedule (I am the only person in High School right now), I started setting my alarm so I would know when I was getting up. It works...though, that snooze button is a lot easier to hit when nobody else is waiting on you. haha! It sounds like you have some awesomely busy weekends! I think that my weeks are just as busy as my weekends, but there is more physical work on weekends. The weekdays are more mental work..I think I prefer physical work. :D I love your long comments!! I think our comments back and forth are getting quite novel like. :) For Christmas? Well, I loooovvve baking, so I've started planning new things that I am going to make. For example;
      http://backforseconds.com/homemade-milky-ways/#_a5y_p=2455032. But for the actual day, it will be spent with my family in the comfort of my home. :) What about you? Do you travel for Christmas as well as Thanksgiving? :)

  5. oh this post is wonderful! what a lovely narrative voice your writing has, and such stunning images, too. my alarm comes on a radio station quietly so it doesn't wake anyone else. i usually get up at about the same time every morning, so my inside clock has already started waking me up and i literally roll out of bed. haha :)

    1. Thank you soo much! :) I am so glad you like my blog. Yes, I like quiet music too. It is a lot easier to slowly wake up in bed and then turn it off. If you jump up to turn off the alarm right away, you don't wake up. I've been testing what works for me. ;) haha! I hope to get myself into that kind of schedule too. :)
