So many little things~

I'm in a bit of a hurry right now. Which, translated means, this post is going to be super short. *Grin* I just feel like a rotten blogger if I go longer than two weeks between posts, so here! My life in a nutshell.

1.) I'm getting ready for my audio class final. I've really enjoyed this class... much more than I thought I would! It's been fun and really interesting. Audio is very cool. I mean, look at the cool stuff I get to use! 
Impressive, right?  ;)

2.) Today's St. Joseph's Day. So, you know.  Happy St. Joseph's Day! 

3.) The weather has been absolutely lovely the last week or so. Spring is here! *Lala-laa, lala-laa!* I've been looking suspiciously at the area that I tried to garden in last year. I could have sworn all the seeds I used were annuals, but I seem to have some very brave and hardy pea shoots! No complaining here. I'd be so pleased to have peas again this year. 

4.) This quote is just so dang awesome!

5.) I'm looking forward to, hopefully, watching Kate and Leopold tonight. If you haven't seen it you should. It's super cute. It's probably my favorite Hugh Jackman movie. He's pretty awesome in it.

6.) One of my sisters got my hooked on this song. It's catchy and happy sounding and it makes me want to go on an adventure. Don't ask why, I have no idea. And the lyrics are a bit...well, weird. But I love them! Right. Here you go. 

Your mouth is a revolver
Firing bullets in the sky
Your love is like a soldier,
Loyal 'til you die
And I’ve been looking at the stars
For a long, long time
I’ve been putting out fires
All my life

Everybody wants a flame,
They don’t want to get burnt
And today is our turn

Days like these lead to...
Nights like this lead to
Love like ours.
You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
People like us—we don’t
Need that much, just some-
One that starts,
Starts the spark in our bonfire hearts

This world is getting colder.
Strangers passing by
No one offers you a shoulder.
No one looks you in the eye.
But I’ve been looking at you
For a long, long time
Just trying to break through,
Trying to make you mine

Everybody wants a flame,
They don’t want to get burnt
Well, today is our turn

Thank you all for stopping by! Now I need to go run those errands. *Eyeballs stack of overdue library books mournfully.* 

God Bless!

Sunflower Blogger Award

Oh lookie! I've been nominated an award! *Dances left. Dances Right. Pirouettes. Does three jumping-jacks and a lunging stretch. Shuffles back to chair, feeling much better about life in general.*

So, Ivy Miranda nominated me for this really happy-looking award. Thank-ee! It's lovely. 

Here are the rules, which I will follow exactly. Except for nominating 11 other bloggers, cause that's just crazy.

1.) Share 11 facts about yourself

2.) Answer the questions set by your nomination blogger.

3.) Nominate 11 bloggers

4.) Set questions for the nominated bloggers.

~Eleven Facts About Me~

1.) I have never been to Czechoslovakia. Odds are good I never will. 

2.) I am S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jema Simmons. Yes. I answered all the questions very honestly. I'm just that cool. ;) 

If you'd like to take the quiz to see what S.H.I.E.L.D agent you are, it's right here for you.  

3.) On a less fantastic note, I am also Spiderman. Yes. Again, I answered all the questions extremely honestly. Which is why I'm Spiderman and not Captain America. 

Spider-man has all of the abilities of a spider. He is often scorned by the public, especially J. Jonah Jameson, who happens to be his boss when he is not in costume. However, Spider-man has always used his powers to help others, often giving up his personal happiness for the good of all people.
^ ^ ^
That's me, you guys! Except that I'm a female. I'd be Spiderwoman. ........Well, that's awful. 

4.) My favorite sports are baseball, soccer and hockey.  I am not good at any of them. 

5.) I am very excited about my bloggy friend, coming to visit/meet the family for the first time at the end of this week. At the end of THIS week! 

6.) I don't like to knit or crotchet. It makes me extremely anxious, tight-necked and...and...

7.) I stopped growing at age 13. That was unexpected. I bragged to most of my sisters that I was likely to outgrow them, and here I am; the shortest person in my family, other than the two youngest who are still growing. That'll teach me!

8.) When I was sixteen, I failed to catch a baseball in my mitt, got hit in the eye, and had to visit an eye doctor. Not very Spiderman of me, was it? There was swelling, double vision, and eye drops and warm and cold compresses for a good two weeks. I had a lovely shiner. *Nods proudly.* I was taking a singing class at the time and had to sing solo in front of the whole class with that shiner! Aaaaawkward.

9.) My computer is running low on battery power and I need to speed things up. 

10.) If I was born the day after I was born, I'd share Bilbo and Frodo's birthday. Unfortunately, I have always been an impatient sort and I came sooner. I couldn't wait any longer. I was curious. So I was born and stayed awake the whole first night of my life. I don't think I've managed that since. 

11.) I finally figured out how to change my ringtone to the Sherlock theme. My life is so complete now. "The game, Mrs Hudson, is on!"

Ivy Miranda's questions:

1.) If you had a chance to live in one country in Europe for one year, what country would it be?
Italy. I would totally go to Italy!

2.) Do you learn from you mistakes or just tend to forget about them?
I learn from them, I think. I certainly don't forget about them! They haunt me. Late at night. In vivid, embarrassing technicolor.

3.) Would you rather live in Middle-Earth, Narnia, Camelot, Panem, or Hogwarts?
Middle-Earth, please!

4.) Vampire, werewolf or neither?
Unless this question includes, "And your hunting weapon of choice," than neither.

5.) What are your favorite children's names?
James, Peter and Christine. I have a whole list, but I doubt anyone wants to hear what I want to name all twelve/thirteen of my fictitious children.

6.) What do you believe was the worst time period in history?
Dang! That's a tough one. There are so many parts of history that I look at and go, "Oh, glad I wan't born in that time frame!" 
But since you asked, I'm going to go with the time just before the Flood. I wouldn't want to be in Noah's shoes. Though I'd want to be in his ark.

7.) What is the greatest achievement in society to date?
Sherlock, Season 3.

Right, so I'm going to nominate, *Mrhrhrhrhr*;

And here are my questions to you! 

1.) What's your favorite type of dog?

2.) Do you sing along to Doctor Who's theme song? 

3.) What does Tahiti make you think of?

4.) How did Moriarty fake his death?

5.) Who's your favorite Superhero.

6.) If you could choose a superhero name, what would you call yourself?

7.) You can travel back in your timeline, and only your timeline. What would you re-visit?

Knock yourselves out, m'dears! 

God Bless!

Captured Moments

One of my favorite ways to spend my free time is to head out to some wild bit of land and take pictures. It's especially wonderful in the summer when I can lug a good book, a snack and a blanket with me and just spread out to read in the sun.

The winter is a little trickier because of the cold and the wet. And it's a little harder to talk any of my sisters into going out with me to take pictures. Perhaps it's because of the cold and wet. *Shrugs* Silly, isn't it?

Sunday was the perfect sort of day to take pictures. So I convinced my little sister that she really wanted to hang out in the cold with me.

It was a little harder to convince her that she should take off her coat for the pictures. It was pretty chilly out here! She was a great sport, though, and we had a lot of fun. I love nature!

This was Christina's first time acting as my photographer. She's took some fun ones. (She also took quite a few duds that we both had a good laugh over. And then I deleted them.)

I love this picture. I have a fascination for reflections and I like to see what sort of pictures I can get when I playing in puddles. *Nods* Puddles are always good fun!

Monday morning two of my other sisters and I went out to a little coffee shop and got coffee's and lemon poppy seed bread. Then we went down to the lake and watched the waves roll in and out for a while. I love doing little things like that. It's so peaceful and cozy.

My wonderful librarian sister found this book for me, and I've been really enjoying it. 

I've tried coming up with a perfect ending for this post a couple of times now and it's just not going to happen.

So basically just, "Bye!"

God Bless!!
