A Day in my Life!

A Day in my Life!

Hello everyone!! πŸ˜€

Today I thought it would be fun to show you guys what a fairly normal school day in my life sometimes looks like. πŸ˜€ I hope y’all enjoy!

Thursday, February 10th, 2022

6:45 – Woke up

I woke up around 6:45, which was nice, since lately I’ve been waking up 20 or more minutes later. I got up (code for I physically forced myself to somehow climb out of bed… I’m not a morning person…!) I made some tea and read my Bible. πŸ˜€

This is still half-asleep me. XD

7:20 – Got dressed

I got dressed and ready for the day. I washed my face, put on a little bit of makeup and smoothed out my hair a bit. My bangs were kind of funny, but I’ll be fixing that later. πŸ™‚

And yeah, I know my the last pick is really random, but….. They’re new shoes and I love them, so. There ya go. 🀣

7:45-Breakfast

My dad made oatmeal for breakfast. πŸ™‚

8:15-Picked up our maid

I was a little bit late on this today – I usually leave at 8, but that’s fine. πŸ™‚ She comes to help out twice a week. πŸ™‚


8:45-Straightened Hair

I just got a flat iron, and decided to straighten my hair today! It’s only the second time I’ve done it, and it’s really fun. πŸ˜„ My hair always feels so long after I straighten is, haha!

9:30 – Worked a bit on this blog post

I’m just writing all these things down shortly after they happen, so that I don’t forget it later. πŸ™‚ Also, more tea. πŸ˜‹

9:50 – Worked on school

I spent the next good while working on school, mainly math and writing, since I’m a bit behind on those subjects.

11:00 – Class

On school mornings at 11:00 to 12:00 I do a class with my three youngest siblings. I do math, science and learning to read with them, and I also sing some songs and read aloud to them.

12:15 – Store

I had to run to the store real quick grab some things for lunch. I meant to take a picture inside the store, but I forgot, so here’s this. XD

12:45 – Ate Lunch

Again, I forgot to take a picture, haha. XD But we had beans.

1:10 – Organized bookshelves

(This was before I cleaned it up, btw. Haha!)

2:00 – Emailed

I caught up on some emails I’ve been meaning to write for forever! I also answered some comments on my blog.

3:00 – Made bread

I hadn’t made bread in quite a while – my younger sisters have mostly taken over that job – so I had to kind of re-learn! XD

4:00

The bread is rising, and while it rose, I read for a bit, and talk with my friend Kyra. πŸ˜€ Then, I put the bread in the oven, and did some more reading and talking to Kyra. XD

I read Enjoy the Poodle Skirt by Kate (Willis) Hopman. It’s so good! And guess what…. You can get a kindle copy for FREE on Amazon. So go check that out! It’s adorable… 😍

6:00

Bread’s out of the oven. It’s so pretty!

6:30 – Supper!

You’ll notice there aren’t many people in this photos, and that’s because my mom was doing a zoom meeting, and my Dad had taken three of the kids to preach in another town. πŸ™‚

7:00 – Dishes!

8:00 – Watched Andy Griffith

After the chores were all finished, we sat down to watch a of couple episodes of the Andy Griffith show. πŸ˜€

After that, I kind of forgot to keep track of what I did when. The kids went to bed after that, and I read for a little while. I went to bed around 10, and probably fell asleep around 11:00. XD It takes me a while sometimes. Usually it doesn’t take me that long though.

And yeah, I hope you guys enjoyed seeing a little peek of what my day was like! Ever day is different of course, but I think that that’s a pretty good representation of what most of my school days are like. πŸ™‚

Hope you’re having a great day!

Love,

Rosy ❀️ 🌼

November 2021, Recap// Celebrating November’s National Holidays

Hey everyone!!

I’m feeling quite un-inspired about how to introduce and start this post, lol. So I think I’m just going to call this very poor excuse for a paragraph an intro, and just get into it. πŸ˜‰.😁

I seriously cannot think of much that happened in November…. So I’ll just think of things as I go, and hopefully come up with some stuff. I’ll also tell you guys about how I celebrated some of November’s National Holidays, so hopefully it won’t be too short a post. πŸ™‚


My sister Grace, and brother Philip each had a birthday this month. Grace turned 17, and Philip turned 8! πŸ™‚

My sister, Grace, and I get to be “twins” for a bit each year. Since we were born 11 and a half months apart, we’re the same age for about 12 days!! We took these pictures while we were both 17. πŸ™‚

Grace, Lizzie and I decided to match plaid turtlenecks for church that day, which was really fun!


Then my 18th birthday happened the next day, which of course, you probably already know about from past posts, so I won’t talk about it here. But I’ll re-post a couple pictures. πŸ˜€


A few of my siblings and I. πŸ™‚

This was our family’s Thanksgiving dinner! πŸ˜€

Bekah and Ruthie did a great job making the rolls!

My youngest siblings and I, while I teach them school. πŸ˜€ πŸ₯°

And my friend Kyra insists that I share this bit of writing with you all… πŸ˜› πŸ˜‚ Basically, while learning about writing good news articles in school, one of my assignments was to write two different news articles about a nursery rhyme, but from two different biased points of view. I chose the old rhyme that says, “Ding dong, pussy’s in the well. Who put her in? Little Johnny Flynn.”πŸ˜‚ Here are my articles. They kind of silly, but they were a lot of fun to write!! XD

And this one is from the opposite bias as the last one. πŸ™‚

In November, I…

Now on to…

Celebrating November’s National Holidays!!

Before November started, I wrote down all it’s National holidays, so that I could celebrate as many as I could. I was able to get nearly all of them, but I really enjoyed the ones I did get to!!

November 1st – National Cinnamon Day

I made cinnamon toast. Mmm!!

November 2nd – National Deviled Egg Day

November 3rd – National Sandwich Day

We made Patty Melts for supper, which are kind of a mix of a burger and a sandwich… But we’re just calling it a sandwich. πŸ˜‰

November 8th – National Cappuccino Day

November 14th – Spicy Guacamole Day

I didn’t get a picture, but I did make some!! Yum!!

November 15th – National Clean out Your Refrigerator Day

I should have gotten before and after pictures… You probably don’t want to see the before picture though. It was pretty messy…!! lol!

November 20th – National Peanut Butter Fudge Day

Didn’t get a picture of this either… 😦 But it was so good!!


These were sooo much fun, and I hope to do it again soon!!

I hope everyone had a great November, and that you all have an awesome Christmas season. This is one of my absolute favorite times of the year, and I’m really excited about it! πŸ˜„ πŸŽ„ ❄️

Love,

October 2021, Recap

Hey everyone! πŸ˜ƒ

How was everyone’s month? October went by so fast for me! That may be because I spent more than half of it pretty sick with Covid. More on that later. Thankfully, I’m getting really close to being being better!

October started with us still in Arizona, visiting our friends there. It was a really good time!! October 2nd was my good friends, Maggie and Jon’s wedding. ❀️

It was a really beautiful wedding!! ❀️

Love these people!!
Me with my amazing friends, Gabby and Kyra

It was a great trip!! It was amazing too see our friends there after quite a while.

We drove home soon after, and everyone was super tired from the trip. We all got sick almost as soon as we arrived. πŸ˜‚ I didn’t do a whole lot during that time except sleep, read and do a bit of school when I could. That sickness lasted for about a week I think, and we were all glad when it was over. πŸ™‚

I decorated my bulletin board and dresser for fall. I pressed some leaves, printed some pictures, and my friend Kyra made the “thankful” sign. I love how everything ended up looking!! 🍁

Mmm, pumpkin pie!! πŸ₯§

Playing Catan with some of my siblings. πŸ˜€

Some friends of ours that we don’t get to see very often visited us for Church. It was a really good time!!

Vannesa, me, Yeseña and Grace. ❀️ It was really good to visit with them!!

Soon after that, we got sick… again. This time even worse – we’re pretty sure it was Covid. Almost all of us lost our taste and smell, which was not fun! It lasted a couple of weeks, but thankfully, we’re all mostly better now.

Since we were sick for so much of October, I don’t really have many more pictures or interesting things that happened. It was sad to be sick so much then, because I love October – but hopefully November will be better!!

In October, I

~Scout and the Abandoned Mill (4 stars)

Despite being sick a lot of the time, October was still a great month. πŸ˜€ As Anne of Green Gables once said… “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” πŸ˜‰ I’m glad we have Novembers too, and I’m really excited for this month!

Love,

What did you do in October? Do you have any plans for November?

September 2021 Recap

September 2021 Recap

Hey everyone! I’M BACK!! After a trip, and getting sick for a few days, I’m finally here and ready to blog again. I’ll have more details about that later! 😁

Oh and yeah, so sorry this post is so late. Again, I was sick. XD Let’s see how much of September I can even remember – at least from the beginning!

*ALERT: Lots and lots of pictures ahead…. Enter at your own risk* ;P

~Well, you already know about our Apple Harvest. That was a good productive time!

~Right after that, my Grandma and (13 year old) Aunt Abigail came to stay with us while my parents went on a trip together. It was so much fun to get to spend some time with them!

Giant selfie! (Or Us-ie…?) XD

Lizzie and I with Abigail

I love all these pictures of Grandma and each of us kids! ❀️

Mom and Dad went to the Copper canyon together, which is a few hours away from here. They rode the world’s longest zip-line, hiked, went boating and did other fun stuff together!

When they got back, we had a hotdog roast for my brother Andy’s 13th birthday

We planted pumpkins for the first time ever, and I love them! I definitely want to start planting them every year. They’re so pretty! Can’t wait to make some pies and other pumpkin-y treats with them. πŸ˜€

After that, I think we just did normal stuff, got sick, and got ready for our trip. So skip all that, and now you’re caught up to the fun part! You’re welcome. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜€

~FAMILY CAMP! This was probably my highlight of the entire year… It was amazing to spend a couple of days with our great friends at Heritage Baptist Church. I don’t have a whole ton of pictures – instead I’m making a video. But it’s not done yet, so. πŸ˜… I do have some though!

We sang a LOT during camp. Friday night, we played guitar and sang until around 11:30 I think, and I pretty much lost my voice the rest of the night.πŸ˜… Totally worth it though, because I enjoyed that time so much. πŸ˜€

My fellow redhead, Gabby, and I braided our hair together, which was really fun/funny! πŸ˜…

Congregational singing

Camp was amazing – way better than I’m making it sound at the moment. πŸ˜‚ Hopefully I’ll be able to share the video I’m making about it later. For now, gotta keep working on it! πŸ˜‰

~While there, we also visited another church and had some good fellowship with friends we hadn’t seen in awhile, as well as some new friends. πŸ˜€

~After Family Camp, we stayed in AZ for another week or so to visit with friends, and also for a wedding! (Pictures of that will have to be in a future post, since that happened in October, not September… lol.)

Anyway, we had a great visiting our friends, the Hublers. We got to spend a good bit of the day with them. We took a spur of the moment trip to the store for ice cream, which we brought home and ate with homemade cookies. So fun!!!!

Playing Chess with Gabby. She creamed me big time, but it was still lots of fun!!!

A few days later we went to the Petzold’s house, which was awesome, and a whole new fun adventure in itself!

I did some recording with Kyra, which was a lot of fun!!

Last time we were together, we accidentally took a picture where it looked like Annika’s arm was really long. We decided to try and redo that picture, and here are our results. I think it turned out pretty good, haha!! πŸ˜‚

They made some amazing, delicious pies!!

Well, I’d probably better start to bring this post to an end now, so let’s get on with this month’s stats. πŸ™‚

July 2021, Recap

Hey everyone!! Can you believe it’s already August? I know I say this every month, but… IT’S CRAZY! This year is going by sooo fast!!

But we’re here to talk about July, not August, so. What happened this month anyway? I forget half of it.. XD But hopefully I shall remember as I go. πŸ™‚

Well, it’s been raining nicely this year! The last couple of years, we have been in a pretty bad drought, and hardly got any rain. But this year, it’s actually been raining, so praise God for that! It’s getting really green, and I love it so much.

A pretty sunset!

I’ve been doing classes with my youngest siblings, which has been fun! πŸ˜€

Reading Glaucia the Greek Slave, given to me by my friend, Susie!! It was really good! πŸ˜€

Our family goes on walks together frequently in the summer. It’ really fun, and the weather as been beautiful!!!

8 out of 11 of us XD Some of the kids ran up ahead, and I was behind taking the picture. πŸ˜€

Later this month (just a few days ago) Ruthie, Susie and I went with Dad to the border! We go every every so often to get our mail, go shopping, and whatever other errands we need to do. πŸ˜€ I always love going.

We left at 3:30 in the morning, and got there around 9:30. The sunrise that morning was really pretty!

It rained a lot on the trip, was was so much fun! The weather was beautiful……!!!

It looks like Dad is sleeping while he’s driving, but DON’T WORRY! He’s just blinking. πŸ˜‰ LOL!!

We went to Coldstone Creamery while we were in El Paso! It was my first time going, and it was AMAZING….. I got coffee ice cream with chocolate and caramel and nuts….. Ahhhh!! We got to watch the lady making it, witch looked super fun, and I decided what my future job will be. LOL!

Sadly, I didn’t get a picture of the ice cream. Sorry, I was just too busy eating it. XD

James and I took picture of each other with these purple flowers. He was quite proud of the pictures he took himself! πŸ˜€ ❀

June 2021, Recap!

Hello my dear blog readers! I hope this post finds you well, and in good spirits. And if not, it is my great hope that this post will bestow unto you joy and pleasure, and that you may leave happy and contented.

Ok, that was slightly weird, but hey, it’s true. (Even if it is worded in a slightly unique manner.) Lol!!πŸ˜‚

Anyway!! Am I the only one who is sitting here in shocked silence, because JUNE IS OVER?! I am currently speechless, but at least I can still type. We’re half way done with 2021! Crazy!! BUT EXCITING!!!

The month of June went very well (for the most part) for us. Save one aspect, which I will discuss at a later juncture. (I don’t know why I keep talking like this, LOL! Maybe it’s because I’ve been reading old books…? Ok, yeah probably. Deal with it.) 🀣

So here I am, at 5:25 in the afternoon, drinking ice tea and writing this blog post. πŸ˜€

~ Early in the month, we had some friends over for the day, which was fun! We played Apples to Apples, and… I won. XD (Not bragging, just stating the facts! LOL!!) We like to play that the cards you win are supposed to describe you… That can get pretty crazy, haha!!

What do y’all think? Do these words describe me??? 🀣

~I’ve been walking a lot lately. I try to get it 2 miles a day. (well sometimes…!) Listening to podcasts motivates me to actually do it. My favorite podcast to listen to is Revive our Hearts with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. πŸ˜€

~We went to Colorado, for my Grandma’s 70th birthday party! That was a good trip, and a lot of fun! πŸ˜€

On the way we listening to Ranger Bill, Focus on the Family Radio Theatre (This Hiding Place), Lamplighters, and I listened to an audio book. (“The Lamplighter” It was really good!!)

Andy and Philip

A couple of books I bought at a thrift store. Look how THICK!!! Can’t wait to read them!!

~Sometimes near the beginning of February, our family, plus our friend Susanna who was visiting us, had a hotdog and s’mores roast. T’was a lot of fun! We used healthy homemade marshmallows for the s’mores. πŸ˜„ πŸ˜‹

~Sometime around the same time, mom, Grace, Lizzie, Susanna and I went on a girl’s date kinda thing. We went out to eat, and to a thrift store! (you can see what I got at the thrift store HERE!) It was a BLAST!

~We went out to eat (AGAIN?!) with Susanna. It’s kinda a tradition to take our American friends to this restaurant when they visit, so we had no choice. We don’t usually go out to eat this much, lol!

Shortly aftwerwards, Susanna left, and we all missed her lots. ❀
