October 2022, Recap

October 2022, Recap

Me:*is determined NOT to be late on the monthly recap post again*

Also me: Still proceeds to wait until the very last minute to even start it*

Anyways…. XD

Hey everyone!!! How was everyone’s month? I can’t believe October is already over…!! *cries because fall is going fast* I’m super excited about November though, for multiple reasons included my and some siblings birthdays, and a planned trip to my grandparents for Thanksgiving. I can’t wait!! However, this post is about October, so here’s what we did.

October 1st was my uncles wedding! If you remember in my last update, we left off in Colorado at my grandparent’s house. The wedding was a few hours away from there. It was a lot of fun!

We stayed a few more days at my grandparent’s house, and then drove 8 hours to Wichita, Kansas to visit New Hope Bible Church, and visit with friends. πŸ˜€ We went to Botanica, a garden in Wichita. It was SO PRETTY! I had a lot of fun taking tons of photos, and spending time with friends.

The butterflies there were AMAZING!! There were sooo many. I had so much fun photographing them!! Hands down my favorite thing there. β€πŸ¦‹

They had a WHOLE bunch of pumpkins, which made me super happy when I saw them!! ❀

There are tons more photos or our trip to Botanica, but this computer is incredibly slow, so I think I’m going to leave it there. πŸ˜‰

That evening we attended New Hope Bible church’s Wednesday night service, and my dad preached and gave a mission update. After the service, we had a great time visiting with friends!

We spent the next (very long…!) two days driving home. It was an amazing trip, and I’m so glad we got to go, and spend time with friends and family! We were glad to get home though, and get back to normal life. πŸ™‚

As soon as we got home, I was really looking forward to decorate for fall, even though it was a bit late! πŸ™‚ I had bought several things to decorate with on the trip, so I was really excited to put them up! πŸ˜€

While on the trip, we went to a used book store, and I found this really neat looking copy of Bleak House by Charles Dickens. It looked old, but there was no publication date on it, so I wasn’t sure how old. Back home, I did some research, and it took a WHILE because apparently this edition isn’t very common. I found out that it was published between 1870 and 1890! That was a really cool find, especially since it was only $3. πŸ˜„

October 2022, Bullet Journal Set Up πŸπŸ‚

Standard
October 2022, Bullet Journal Set Up πŸπŸ‚

Hi Friends! ❀

Y’all. So I decided in my last post that I would try to start posting more often. However, disaster struck, and my laptop up and DIED on me. The battery was completely shot, so we brought it to a computer fixing place, where it has been for the last 5 weeks. I hate using almost all other devices, but obviously had to some. However, I didn’t want to blog on anything but my computer, but it’s been so long since I’ve done a post, that I’m just going to do it.

So, even though this is (very) late, here is my October bullet journal set up!! This was so much fun to make, because I love autumn!

For the cover page, I simply made a very fun and autumnal collage. ❀

I really like this calendar page!

By now I’ve already read several of these, lol…. I left a page blank, because I always add more books later in the month. I actually already have… XD

I wanted to do a little bit more in the book/reading department this month, so I added a couple of extra trackers.

A bucket list that I have yet to fill out… πŸ˜‰ Do y’all have any ideas for it?

Also, here’s a quick tip for finding photos to use in journaling/scrapbooking – save your old calendars, and cut out the little pictures in the back where it shows you what’s all in the calendar. πŸ˜€

A daily log, where I usually put my to-do lists. I think this page turned out so cute!

And that’s the last page! I’ve been particularly enjoying using this month’s set up. It’s very cozy and autumnal. 🧑 πŸπŸ‚

Thank you all for reading, and hopefully I will get my computer back soon, so I can continue blogging and making videos more often. πŸ˜€

I hope everyone is having a great day!

Love, Rosy 🧑🍁

November 2021 Bullet Journal Set Up β˜•οΈ

Standard

Hey guys! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT’S NOVEMBER?!?!?! (Just about) It’s so crazy!!! This year seems to be going by insanely fast. XD

I did the November set up in a hurry, because I didn’t start until yesterday, and really wanted to get this posted today at the latest. Plus, I’m really sick, so that was a little bit difficult. XD So if the set up seems a bit rushed and not as well done as normal, that’s why. πŸ˜‰

My theme for November is….. Tea and coffee! I chose this theme because I love hot drinks during fall, and I wanted to choose something that I loved for my birthday month. πŸ˜€ β˜•οΈ Now on to the cover page!

I put off doing this page till the very end, because I really wasn’t sure what to do. I was sick, and I wasn’t feeling very artsy…! In the end I drew a simple tea cup, and colored that in with watercolor. I really like how it turned out though!

My mood tracker turned out a little wonky in my opinion, as I wasn’t really paying attention to keeping all the tea bags the same size…. Oh well, I really like the next page, so that makes up for the chaos on the other side, haha! Also, I realized just now that I haven’t yet colored in the mug, and chosen colors for the mood tracker. Oh well, y’all get the idea! πŸ˜‰

A really simple thankful log and sleep tracker. πŸ™‚

Bible and book reading, and a social media tracker. πŸ™‚ I’ve written in some of what I’m planning on reading. I’m really looking forward to reading November’s books!!!!

Next, I did up a few for fun, fall pages. πŸ˜€ These are some of the things on my Autumn bucket list, which I hope to accomplish most of during November. Hopefully I’ll post about completing them later in the month! πŸ˜€

This next page is quite boring so far. We’ll see if I can color-fy it later. Anyway, something fun I love doing sometimes is celebrating random, fun national holidays. These are all real holidays, and though I’m sure I won’t be able to observe them every day, it’ll be fun to do something when I can. And hmm, maybe I could post about doing that sometime…. Would you guys be interested?

And lastly, my weekly log, which is really simple, but I really like how it looks. πŸ™‚

And there you have it! Despite the huge rush, I do like how it turned out. I’m sooo excited for November! πŸ˜€

Love,

Rosy β˜•οΈ ❀️

Which page do you like best? What are you looking forward to in November?

October Bullet Journal Set Up 🍁 πŸ‚

Standard

Hey everyone!!

IT’S FALL!!! I’ve been looking forward to autumn for a while, and I’m so excited it’s finally here! Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. πŸ™‚ 🍁 πŸ‚ πŸ˜„ YAY for fall!!

So of course, my theme for October is… Autumn! πŸ˜€

The cover page is a lot more complicated than I normally make, but I really love how it turned out!! It’s soo fall-y! XD πŸ˜€

Next we have a quote made (Which I love!!), and A Line a Day. πŸ™‚

Habit and Mood Tracker. πŸ™‚

Sleep Tracker, Bible Reading Tracker and my social tracker. πŸ™‚

So far I have only a couple of books written down, but don’t worry – the entire page will fill up before long. 😁 For now, here’s just the corner of the page that I have. XD

And lastly, here’s my daily log, which I think turned out really nice and atumn-y. πŸ˜„ πŸ‚

And there we have it! This is one of my favorite set ups I’ve ever done. 🍁 Did I mention I love Autumn? I love coziness, reading books and drinking tea, all the pretty colors… I’m really looking forward to doing all the autumn-y things, and checking off my bucket list (which I hope to post later!)

Anyway, we have a two week trip coming up the day after tomorrow (which I’m SO excited about!), so I have to go continue getting ready. So I won’t be posting for a couple of weeks and my September Recap may be a few days late, but I’ll be back soon, hopefully with some fall posts! πŸ˜€

Love,

Rosy ❀️ 🍁

P.S. Even though this was posted today, I actually wrote it on September 22, at 4:30 PM. XD So when you read this, assuming you read it shortly after being posted, we’ll probably be on our trip and having an amazing time. πŸ™‚ Consequently, I may not be on the computer to moderate and answer comments, but I will soon. Have a great day!! ❀

What’s your favorite season? Do you prefer “Fall” or “Autumn”?

Apple Harvest, 2021

Standard

Every year around August or September my family has apple harvest, where we process and can apples in many various forms. It’s a lot of fun – for the first couple hours! After hours and hours and days, it does get quite tiring though. However, it’s definitely worth it to have apples saved for the rest of the year!

We have two apple trees, but the majority of the apples, we bought and picked from our neighbor’s trees.

For two days, we cut, chopped, sliced, peeled, juiced, froze, mashed, boiled and cooked apples. We made apple cider, apple pie filling, dried apples, frozen apples, canned apples, apple sauce, apple butter and more. You name it, we probably made it!! πŸ˜‚

My adorable brother, James

For lunch, since we didn’t really have time to make anything, Dad got hamburgers, which is a special treat. T’was a bright spot in a rather long, tiresome day. Lol!

After lunch, we resumed work. Apples, apples, apples! These are a fraction of the jars that we canned. I think most of these are apple cider, which will be awesome during the fall and winter months!

The next afternoon, we (finally!) we were mostly finished, except for a little bit more dehydrating we did here and there for the next few days. πŸ™‚

Here are the estimated results of our harvest, (which we have affectionately dubbed “Apples Party”

~Canned 62 quarts of apple juice
~Canned 29 quarts of apple sauce
~19 gallons of juice for the freezer
~8 quarts of apple sauce for the freezer
~19 gallons of apple slices for the freezer
~Filled the 9 tray dehydrator 7 times
~9 quarts apple butter
~24 pints apple butter
~27 quarts of apple pie filling

Roughly 800 lbs of apples were processed. Yay!!

What’s your favorite apple product? Red or green apples? (Green all the way for me!)

Love,

Rosy 🍎 🍏 ❀️

Fall Photoshoot!

Standard

Hiya, people! πŸ˜‰

For the last while I have been trying to find a good day for a Fall photoshoot, but each day has been too cloudy and rainy… Yesterday afternoon it was finally clear enough to get some good pictures!

I started out with a few pictures taken at our house.

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. πŸ™‚ And I hope y’all have been enjoying it as much as I have!

Have a great Autumn everyone!! πŸ˜€
