August 2021 Bullet Journal Set Up

Standard
August 2021 Bullet Journal Set Up

Hey everyone!! Can you believe it’s almost August?! To me, August seems to signify that we’re nearing the end of the year. How crazy is that?!

Also, this set up used up the LAST of my bullet journal!!!! “tis a bit sad, like saying good bye to an old friend (Hey! It stuck with me throughout this whole year!). BUT. I have another one coming in the mail soon! I’m excited to get it, and to show you guys in my September set up. ๐Ÿ˜€ (Spoiler: It’s a certain shade of green. That’s all I’m saying. You’ll get to meet him next month.) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyways, the theme for this month, is….

๐ŸŒปSunflowers!!!๐ŸŒป

I’ve been wanting to do a sunflower theme for months, and I’m (mostly) really happy with how it turned out! There are a few things yes, that definitely could have been done better, but for the most part, I love it. ๐ŸŒป

Here is the cover page, Word of the Month, Goals (which I haven’t written yet, sorry!) and a gratitude log. As you can see, I have everything pretty compact and squished together, since I had only a few pages left in the book to fit everything. When I get my new journal, I hope to be a bit more loose with it, and be able to use some more pages! And I love how the little sunflower I drew turned out…. ๐Ÿ˜€ (If I do say so myself. Lol!)

My word of the month for August is Meekness – something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately! Which actually brings me to my first regret – the lettering I did for “Meekness” is atrocious. I thought and thought of ways to cover it up, but that was easier said than done. At last, I decided to be meek, leave it as it is, and post it anyway. It’s a good reminder to be humble… LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Mood tracker (which I love!) habit tracker, and a goals and rewards thing. ๐Ÿ˜€

I did a sleep tracker for the first time last month, and it went well, so I think I’ll start adding it to my regular set up from now on. ๐Ÿ˜€ The second page was empty and I couldn’t decide how to fill it, so I finally decided to do a very random “life tracker”. Kinda like a habit tracker, but different. I think it turned out pretty cute!

And this brings me to my second regret, which is how I accidentally wrote “Life”… Oh well, I’ll survive! XD

And lastly, my Books, Bible and Social Tracker! I left some space on my books and Bible sections, to hopefully write in more books that I want to read, but didn’t necessarily plan on. ๐Ÿ™‚

And there you have it! There’s a weekly log page as well, but it’s pretty boring, so I won’t show it here. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I really love this set up, and CAN’T WAIT to use it! Yay for August! And sunflowers!! ๐ŸŒป โค๏ธ

As a bonus, here are some sunflower pictures I took last year, that I love! ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!! If you bullet journal, what’s your theme for August? ๐Ÿ˜€

Love,

Rosy ๐ŸŒป ๐Ÿ’–

Visiting our Grandparents (April, 2021)

Standard

Hey everyone! I’m just popping in to tell you guys all about our trip to our grandparent’s house a couple of weeks ago. ๐Ÿ˜„ (I mentioned it briefly in THIS POST) ๐Ÿ™‚ I showed y’all a few pictures, but I have a bunch more here for you guys!

Warning: This may be a long post, so get ready! XD

My grandparent’s live in the mountains of Coahuila, Mexico, about a days drive from our house. We left early in the morning (around 4:00 am, I think). And somehow I was actually able to doze on and off a bit between 5 and 6, which was nice! At around 7:30, we stopped at a burrito stand for breakfast. (If you know me, you know that’s my favorite part of any trip – getting burritos from one of those burrito stands on the side of the road.) Ok, maybe not my FAVORITE, but I love it. Don’t worry, being with my grandparents was much better.๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚

Waiting for our burritos in Parral, Chihuahua ๐Ÿ˜

After that, we settled down for our long journey, listening to the daring adventures of Ranger Bill along the way. (Ever since our friends, the Cooks, gave the audio drama to us, no trip has been complete without it!)๐Ÿ˜‚

(Oh, and I forgot to mention, Lizzie brought her dog Jock. He actually did really well in the van.) ๐Ÿ™‚

And this is how we entertain ourselves in the car… LOL! Poor dog! ๐Ÿคฃ

After that, everyone had to try on the sunglasses. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Bekah and I worked in our bullet journals for a while, despite the constant bumping and jostling of the car. (Mexican highways are so much bumpier than in the States) XD We didn’t end up doing for too long though, so we wouldn’t end up ruining our journals forever. ๐Ÿ˜‚ But it was still fun!

Me. Taking a photo. In the gas station bathroom. Brilliant, I know! XD LOL.

After that, we spent the rest of our time reading, being weird and laughing too hard, singing to instrumental bluegrass hymns, being bored, and looking forward to getting there. ๐Ÿ˜€

I also found some neat photography opportunities at a couple of the gas stations. ๐Ÿ˜€ I really like how they turned out! ๐Ÿ˜€

My sister, Grace, tried taking a picture of me… The sun was so bright, it uh, didn’t exactly turn out…! ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿค“ โ˜€๏ธ So yeah, enjoy this super weird picture of me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, after driving for most of the day, we finally arrived!

The mountains around their house are so pretty!!! โค๏ธ โ›ฐ

While there, my friend Carolina (Caro) came for a visit. It was so awesome to finally be here after being friends online for quite a while! ๐Ÿ˜€ We had a lot of fun together!!! ๐Ÿ’•

Caro and I!

We took LOTS of pictures. I’m only showing you a few of them, haha!

Love this one!!!

And of course, we had to take at least 1 silly picture. Or 35. But I’ll save your guy’s sanity, and only show you one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Caro, Ruthie and I!
Abigail and I!

More fun pictures!

And more….!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค

On Friday, we went to church, and my dad preached and led singing. ๐Ÿ˜„

After Church, we (SURPRISE) took even more pictures! Haha!

Caro and I! (well, our hands at least…!) Haha!

While we were there, my parent’s celebrated their 19th anniversary, and my Grandma, Aunt, Sisters and I set up a date night for them in the bedroom. ๐Ÿ˜€

I made this cards to put on their table. (And it was my first time using a real calligraphy pen, so that was super fun!) ๐Ÿ˜€

And yeah, I think that’s about it!

And, I just realized, I have no pictures with my grandpa, or grandpa! (How did that happen?!) ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Well, I love you very much Grandpa and Grandma, and I’m sorry I didn’t get pictures with you guys. To make up, I’ll just have to post this pictures from another 2019.

(I love you, Grandpa and Grandma!!) ๐Ÿ’–

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures. It was an awesome, super fun trip! โค

Love,

April 2021, Recap

Standard
April 2021, Recap

Hey everyone!

I’m so sorry about my unannounced break from blogging. XD I was super busy, we went on a trip, I was unmotivated for a while, and I just never found time to sit down and make a post. Between all those things, I’ve been gone for almost a month now… In fact, my last post was my March Recap. Oops!!

Anyway, back to the original purpose of this post…. IT’S MAY!!! (Well, as of tomorrow) ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Is anyone else as shocked as I am? Comment below) XD

April 2021

~ I got the books in the mail that I talked about in my Book Haul post! (Very quick background story: I bought the book Little Women on a used books website, and it ended up being a very revised kid’s version… So I bought it again!)

This time, it was the original, and IT’S SOOO THICK!!! I love it…. ๐Ÿ˜ I’m really excited to read it. (I love thick books!!!)

And I also tagged on two Anne of Green Gables books, since I had a $5 coupon. I’m excited for those too! ๐Ÿ˜€

~ A couple pictures from Church.

~I planted a (very) small flower garden! I planted zinnias and sunflowers. I’m really excited for them to come up!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll probably post pictures when they bloom, but until then, you’ll have to content yourself with this beautiful picture of… dirt.

My poor flower bed looks rather forlorn at this point, but don’t worry, something will *probably* come up. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‚

~ I sewed a skirt and an apron! I really love how they turned out. ๐Ÿ˜„

~ Selfies with Lizzie XD (Believe me, I had to search through the pictures for a decent one that wasn’t too goofy) ๐Ÿ˜‚

And honestly, not a whole ton else happened (that I remember at least…..) XD

ONLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY MONTH!

(In case you thought I had no more pictures to show you…. Believe me, I have a lot.) However, I want to do a ful post on it later, so I’m going to *try* and choose only a few to show you for now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

~We went to my grandparent’s house this month, and we had a super fun time!! I had a lot of fun with my grandparents, and my aunt, and I also got to meet my uncle’s girlfriend, Carolina. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’d been friends with her online for a while, and it was so great to finally meet her! ๐Ÿ’–

And I have a TON more pictures, that will just have to wait till a later post. ๐Ÿ˜„ It was a great time though! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค๏ธ

Hey everyone!

IT’S SPRING! Yaaaayyy!!!! I’m kinda really excited….. ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s starting to warm up a bit, and I can’t wait until it’s started getting green!

This morning, I decided to do a First-Day-Of-Spring Photoshoot! I hope you guys enjoy!

Recent Photography

I realized that I haven’t posted much photography lately, sooo… I’ve decided to fix that! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€

So, for starters, my uncle gave my a camera that’s so much better than my old one! (Thanks sooo much Timothy! ๐Ÿ˜€ ) And he taught me how to use it, and I’ve been totally loving it! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

A Condensed Version of the Month of June and July

Hello everyone! Iโ€™m sorry I missed last months update. So, I will make it up, and do the last two months in this post. ๐Ÿ™‚

June

 

 

 

 

Lately I have been enjoying โ€œtrick photographyโ€.ย 

 

 

 

 

More photoshoots of my sibling. ๐Ÿ™‚

As you may know, if youโ€™ve been keeping up with my blog, we have sold our van, and bought a new one! You can read about that here.

The kids were playing house, and then asked me to take their family picture for them… Susy (3) is the mom, James (2) is the dad, and Bekah (8) is the child, along with a few other dolls. As you can see, the family kind of collapsed in the second picture. And Iโ€™m not entirely sure why the mom is sticking her tongue out…

July

Colorado

We went to Colorado around the end of June and beginning of July. We were helping our grandparents with the wheat harvest. I will post more pictures later, but here are a few of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

The rest of the month, went on mostly as normal. Then on the 26th of July, we had the Franklins and the Pereanus here from AZ!!! We had an awesome time of fellowship with them!!!! Again, Iโ€™m planning on posting lots of pics later, but for now, here are some of my favorites! ๐Ÿ™‚

Some of them sang for us at the church in theย mountains. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Here is a video of Gracie, Jeri F., and I singing Amazing Grace to the tune of When I Survey the Wondrous Cross. We had a lot of fun with this arrangement!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Well, thatโ€™s about it for now! The Franklins and Pereanus left here yesterday morning. The house seems so empty and quiet without them!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

And here is a fun random question for you… So I was cleaning up some pin needles, and suddenly got inspired for this picture… What is it of/from? Sorry, itโ€™s not a great picture, but… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi everyone! April has been busy, fun and… Hmm, what else? Musical!!! My sister Gracie and I made four whole song videos all of which will probably make their way here, one by one eventually. There was several beautiful sunsets, and I tookย tons of silhouettes with my siblings. But those will be in another post by themselves later (cuz there are so many of them, lol!)

Well, thatโ€™s about it for this month. We also have a stray kitten that our dog Velvet brought in from somewhere. My siblings are having a blast taking care of it.

Oh, and also, I made a video for family camp! I didn’t get it done until just now, so thatโ€™s why I didn’t post it her until now. Here it is!

 

Well, until next time!

Peach Flowers, Bees and Sunsets

Last week, when our peach tree had just bloomed, I got the chance to take some good pictures. I only meant to take a couple, but then I spotted a whole bunch of bees, and that was too hard to resist… So, I ended up taking about 50 pictures. Not all of them worked out, of course, so I deleted a lot. Here are a few of the best ones.
