Goat Rides and… A Water Bottle Hairstyle?

Standard
Goat Rides and… A Water Bottle Hairstyle?

Despite having such a strange title (Especially that last part…), this post isn’t as weird as it may seem. In fact, there really is a such thing as a water bottle hairstyle, although I’m not sure that that’s the official name for it…. Anyway lets get started, with the goat rides. Yesterday evening some friends came over to…

Um, wait, a minute, I think I hear Mom calling me. Wait right there! Don’t move a muscle, I’ll be back in a jiffy… or two… Don’t go away… *Voice fades away*


*5 minutes pass*

Ahem. Excuse me, but I don’t think that Rosy will be back any time soon, so I have decided to take over finish this blog post for her. In case you don’t know who I am, let me introduce myself. I am… well, I don’t really have a name right now. But anyways, I am Rosy’s trusty camera! Rosy has thought about naming me, but so far hasn’t found a name that hasn’t sounded totally cheesy or plain weird. I have a few ideas, but am unable to tell her, since I don’t speak English. I can type it, but not speak it. Yet. 

Anyway, let’s get on to the real reason why I’m here. Goat rides. I should know about this, since Rosy used me to photograph the whole, crazy event. I honestly cannot understand why anyone in their right mind would want to ride a goat. Humans. I’ll never understand them. 

It started when some friends of the Marr family who were traveling through, came over to visit, and spend to the night in their guest house. After visiting (In Spanish, a language which I can’t understand!) in the living room for an hour, all the children 11 and under went outside to play. This happened to include the riding of a goat. Ugh… Rosy apparently thought they were cute, because she grabbed me, and ran outside to take picture of them. That’s what she always does whenever she sees something cute. Believe me, I know.

p1030705

 Guys, she took waaaaaaay more pictures of that than what I just showed you! I’m only allowing you to see the very best ones, since most of them are embarrassing – they’re so blurry with such bad lighting, Ugh. She always does that to me…. :/ 

After she had finished with that, she was randomly inspired by the sunset, and ordered all of her siblings and their little Mexican friend to stand on the wall in front of it, to which they willingly and happily complied. (Wow, that was a long sentence! Especially for me!!!)

pizap.com15467446223861pizap.com15467449401591pizap.com15467448132251

I personally think these are the best picture that she took all day! 

After the company went to the guest house to get ready for bed, Rosy got inspired again  only this time it was for a hair style. She grabbed her sister, Bekah, and ran to another room with a brush, comb and strangely enough… And empty water bottle… Unfortunately  I can’t tell you what went on in there, since she left me in the living room alone. :/

However, when she came back, I was horrified and utterly shocked at what I saw. Behold:

p1030763 

Crazy? Yup. My thoughts exactly. She really liked it, her sister tolerated it, and everyone else thought it was hilarious. But she didn’t ask my opinion! 😦

After all that happened, the day was over, and they all got ready for bed. 

Uh oh. I think I hear Rosy coming back. Please, PLEASE do not tell her I was here!!! She might never forgive me for ruining her blog. (At least, that’s what she would think about it… I personally believe the world would be better if it were run by cameras.) But she’s coming, so I really need to go. YOU NEVER SAW ME!!!!!


 

Okay, guys, I’m finally back. I’m really, really sorry, but I don’t think that I’m going to have time to tell you what I was going to tell you about the goats and hairstyles and stuff… I’m so sorry! Maybe another day, okay?

Oh look! I just saw one my siblings run past wearing a towel on her head for a hat! She was so cute! I’ve got to get a picture of this! 😀

TTFN!

Morning at the Marr House

Standard

Merry Christmas Adam!!! (For those of you who are unfamiliar with that term, Christmas Adam is the day before Christmas Eve. Get it? 😛 )

Today, I am going to give you a small glimpse of our life… At least, of our life this morning!!! 😀

In the mornings it’s usually pretty cold, so Dad starts a fire in the stove before most of the family is up and going. (Well, they are often up, just not going…) 😉 I usually get up at about 6:45 or 7:00. It’s so hard to get up early these days, because it’s so cold in our bedroom! There really isn’t any heat source in there, so we’re freezing we we first get up. xD ❄️☃️🧥 When I get to the main room, which is our kitchen, dining room, and living room, I sit on the couch. Within minutes I have at least three small kids on my lap, and/or around me. ❤️

This morning was no exception. In fact, the amount of kids there were was doubled this particular morning, as I was reading aloud the book, “Go Dog, Go!”, my little brother Philip’s favorite book.

2018-12-23

On the other couch are my sisters Gracie and Lizzie… (And Andy, who apparently thought that this picture needed him! 😛 )

2018-12-23-4

Mom, James and Bekah on the other couch!

2018-12-23-2

Aaaaand (this last pic was taken a few minutes later), Mom and Dad standing by the fire! 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤ Oh, and Susy is there too. 🙂

2018-12-23-3

And then, we ate breakfast, which was oatmeal, listened to a sermon by our pastor back in the U.S., and ate lunch, etc, etc, etc… 😀 😛

Welp, that’s wrap!

Love,

Rosy

Let’s Talk!

Have you ever heard of “Christmas Adam”?

What did you eat for breakfast today? 

What time do you usually get up in the mornings?

Are you ready for Christmas? 

 

 

 

 

Post #106 – In Which I Tell You What’s Been Going on at the Marr House…

Standard

Happy National Oatmeal Muffin Day, everyone. (So, how many of you ate oatmeal muffins today?) 😛

So, I realized I should probably write up an update on my life for Ya’ll. So, welcome to Post #106 – In Which I Tell You What’s Been Going on at the Marr House. Because you probably couldn’t guess after reading that title… 😛

Anyways, so as you may remember, if you have been keeping up with my blog, I had a birthday, and so did my sister and brother. What you probably don’t remember (At least, it would be pretty creepy if you did, since it never happened…), are the pictures that I didn’t post. :/

My now 5 year old brother, Philip, and now 14 year old sis, Gracie. 😀

My now 15 year old self… 😉 Isn’t the cake one of my friends made amazing??? She also made the one in the above pic.

The weather has been super cool… like, in the teen digits a few weeks ago… Brrr! We’ve had a good frost almost every morning. It really almost looks like snow!

P1030380

Doesn’t it look kind of like snow?

P1030382

A frozen leaf. And a freezing hand… 😛

It sadly has not yet snowed. I mean, if it’s going to have to be this cold, at least we can have a little bit of snow, right? Of course! But no… 😦 So yeah. Maybe, MAYBE, we will get to have a white Christmas this year!

Speaking of… IT’S 5 DAYS ‘TILL CHRISTMAS, GUYS!!!!!!! Can you believe it??? And it’s also almost 2019… Wow. 😮

A few week ago, my brother and I realized we were matching in clothes. (It took us about half way through the day to figure it out! 😛 ) Then, of course, I had to take pictures… Which was actually a challenge, since Andy (My Bro), didn’t want to… (Well, he pretended not to want to…) xD

Matching

Aaaaand, this is what it actually took to get a good picture… 😛 =D

Book Tag and Book Memes +Calculator Trick

Standard
Book Tag and Book Memes +Calculator Trick

So, my friend Amie kind of unofficially tagged for this tag. Because… I really wanted to do it!!! 😛 

1. how many books are too many books in a book series?

Hmm.. Well, 300 books in a series is too many. But I have yet to find a book series with that many books, so… Yeah. I’m actually not sure about this one… But more is usually better, unless you have the first book, and don’t have enough money to buy the rest… That’s just plain sad. 😦

b734696bff3e75f51424449bf74b20ac

2. how do you feel about cliffhangers?

I love them. Except for when they are at the end of a book, and you don’t have the next one. *Cries just thinking about it*

3. hardback or paperback?

Paperback for sure. Hardback is supposed to mean better quality or something,. but paperback is just easier… To hold the book open. 😛

57ef9a71eeee0e46f0f625a6f27e6548

4. favorite book?

Wow. Ouch. No. Too hard. Ok, but two amazing books are The Star Under the City, and The Bronze Bow. Among other, lol. xD

5. least favorite book?

Do I have to have one? Cuz I can’t think of anything at the moment…

6. love triangles, yes or no?

Ummmm……. Huh? 

tenor (2)

7. the most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

I finish most all the books that I start. 😛 😀 

8. a book you’re currently reading?

Currently I’m reading 24 Days Before Christmas out loud to my sisters. 🙂 nothing other that actually. Surprisingly…

35930e9c72cb26b2365ab07dba42218e

9. last book you recommended to someone?

Probably The Star Under the City, or The Bronze Bow, lol!!! xD

10. oldest book you’ve read? (publication date)

I actually do not know about this one… Sorry! I’d like to know myself!

11. newest book you’ve read? (publication date)

The Star Under the City. (Love this book, guys!!!)

6c357e7afff8e58d0438217dbbcaa9c3

12. favorite author?

Maggie Joy, Rebekah Jones, Christmas Carol Kaufman (Don’t ask me why she’s named that!), and Elizabeth George Speare… To name a few… Don’t make me pick just one of them!!! 

13. buying books or borrowing books?

I guess borrowing books, since I don’t really have enough money to buy them… But I really haven’t done much of either… :O 

14. a book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

I don’t have a ton of books, and most of what I have, I like. Soooooo…..

c5c6693d9f6348345e18a5ec57234548

15. bookmarks or dog-ears?

Both!!!!! If there’s a a piece of paper nearby, I’ll use it as a bookmark. If not. “Sorry book!!!”

16. a book you can always reread?

I reread EVERYTHING!!!!! xD But speaking of, I just have to say that I have read The Star Under the City 5 times. Since it was published early this year. IT’S SO GOOD!!!!!

17. can you read while hearing music?

Of course! I can read through a lot of things… 😛

a954e1943293e20a74041f64708cefe6

18. one POV or multiple POVs?

I like multiple POVs. Too many can get confusing, but the story is often more comprehendible with more than one.

19. do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Depends on the book. I am definitely able to read a book in one sitting, but I don’t generally have that much time anymore, so… :/ 

20. who do you tag?

Hmmm…. YOU!!! Just ask in the comments of you can be tagged, and VOILA! Your’e it!!! Or you can simply answer the questions in the comments, which I would love. 🙂 ❤ 

Welp, that’s the end! That was a LOT of questions to answer! 😛 


And now, on to that cool little trick I promised… 

Step 1. Take a calculator. Don’t use the calculator on your mac computer, because you’re going to need to turn it upside down. (I’ll explain later!) 😛 

Step 2. Punch in the number 0.1134. (That decimal is important, or else the 0 won’t show up.)

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 4.31.45 PM

Step 3. Turn calculator upside down… And behold! Yes, it really hello on it! Cool?

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 4.31.53 PM

Welp, I’d better go now!!! If you read this whole post… Then great job, you’re awesome!!!!! *High five!* 😀

The End,

Rosy 😉 

Let’s Talk!

Can you relate to any of the memes in this post?

Will you try the calculator trick?

And please… Somebody tell me what a triangle is, as stated in question #6!!!
