How Well do you Know Rosy – 2

I’m back with another quiz! Yay! (Cause quizzes are awesome, lol!) This is a part two to the How Well do You Know Rosy quiz I did a while back. If you didn’t get to it, HERE IT IS. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

And now… Part two! This quiz may turn out to be a bit harder than the last one. (Maybe because I was running low on questions, lol. It took me forever to think up all those. XD) So don’t worry if you get a low score. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have fun!

Happy Autumn!

Standard
Happy Autumn!

Yes, it’s been Autumn for three days, and no, I haven’t gotten around to posting about it until just now… Oh well! XD

But anyway, as I was saying… It’s Fall. Like, wow. Where did Summer go? (Who else feels like it just started?!) *Raises hand*

It’s been raining (And thundering, and lightening!) quite a bit lately, which is amazing. *Happy sigh* Especially at night. It’s awesome going to sleep with the sound of thunder all around… (Not to mention that at night you don’t have to worry about the electricity going out…. lol.)

So yeah, it’s Fall. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I hope y’all have been enjoying it as much as I have!

Life Update!

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on our life, so I decided it was time for one. ๐Ÿ™‚ Quite a bit has happened the last several months. And a lot of good things, and a lot of hard things too. But God has been faithful through it all. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

So… One cool/happy thing going on right now, is that our friend, Maggie Cyr, came all the way from Arizona to stay with us for about a month! We are very much enjoying our time with her. ๐Ÿ™‚

It has been a big blessing having her, and we’ve had a lot of fun with her! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  โค

The weather has been amazing where we live in Mexico. Lots of rain, clouds, thunder…. It’s all awesome! (Except for the fact the electricity pretty much always goes out every time it rains… Which is about every day during these months… XD )

I went on a nature walk with my camera the other day. ๐Ÿ™‚ Summer is amazing for photography. (I’m so sad it’s almost over. 4 more days!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

Other than that, I have…

Played lots of guitar and piano…

Read lots of books, including The Hiding Place, and several books by Elisabeth Elliot…

Played piano at church for the first time – that was very fun!

Watched The Widow’s Might with Maggie…

Sang a lot with Maggie, Gracie and Lizzie… ๐Ÿ˜€

And lots more… ๐Ÿ˜‰

oh, and one more thing that’s happening right now, is that we are finally replacing our bookshelf. It was FALLING. APART. Literally. Like, I can’t tell you how any time we nailed those shelves up when they fell a few times a week… XD So yeah, we are very happy (to say the least!) about the new ones. I won’t go into how hard it was to actually get the bookshelf standing upright because it was slightly too tall, and our ceiling is shorter in some spots, and higher in others… Lol! XD Oh, and we currently have books stacked all over the living room still… XD

2019-09-19 (9)

The new bookshelf. ๐Ÿ™‚ We haven’t finished putting the books back on the shelves, lol!

So yeah, that’s a bit of what’s been going on lately. ๐Ÿ™‚ (That was a lot of pictures, lol)

I wanted to end this post with this quote my grandma sent me. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

~Charles Spurgeon

I nominate…

Anna @A Story Nerd’s Life

Thanks for tagging me Hattush, this was fun! ๐Ÿ™‚


Ok, so for those of you who are wondering why I posted the last day of this tag twice, and for you who are wondering why I’m so late in posting this, I decided to redo my last post.

After I posted my last blog post (3 Days, 3 Quotes – Day Three) I realized that some of the people I quoted did not reflect a biblical worldview, so I decided to delete that one, and completely redo it. I’m so sorry, and I apologize for any confusion I caused. Thank you!

I hope everyone is having a great Lord’s Day. โ˜บ

6 Things to do Before Summer Ends!

Standard
6 Things to do Before Summer Ends!

Summer is almost over! Can you believe it? I can’t. But I guess it doesn’t really matter if I do or not, because it’s happening anyway. We have less than one month left guys!!!

So, getting to the point.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m doing a fun collab with my good friends Anna and Pearl! Be sure to check out their awesome posts! ๐Ÿ˜€ (And follow their blogs if you don’t already!) the links to their posts are below. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anna is posting on 3 great books to read during the summer, and Pearl is posting about some different ways to stay cool in the summer!

And, without further ado… Here are…

6 Things to do Before Summer Ends

2019-08-27

  1. Take some summery pictures

Summer is one of the best time for taking pictures. All those beautiful plants and flowers and greenness. Definitely one of my favorite seasons for photography. And even if you don’t have a camera, you can still take amazing pictures with a phone!

IMG_1909

2. Go on a nature walk

We have a dirt road that runs right behind our house. Every summer wild sunflowers grow on either side of the road, and the calming sounds of wind and bees and Who-Knows-What-Else fills your ears… I love taking my camera along and photographing God’s beautiful world!

3. Spend Extra Time in God’s Word

One of the most important and worthwhile things you can do is spending time reading God’s Word and learning more about Him!

“It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.”

Psalm 74:17

“While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease.”

Genesis 8:22

4. Learn a New Hobby

Learning a new hobby can be fun, whether it’s photography, writing, cooking, art, a sport, or anything else you’re interesting in!

5. Go on a Picnic

Sometimes in the summer my sisters and I make some special food and snacks, grab a quilt, and walk down the road to a quiet field, and have a picnic. Sometimes we bring a book and I read out loud to them. Sometimes we just talk. So special and relaxing!

6. Spend Time with Your Siblings

Take some time to spend with your siblings, and make some fun memories with them. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค
