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™‚

What did you do in September? Are you excited for Fall? Have you read any of the books I read this month?

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) πŸ˜‰ (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…. 😍 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! πŸ˜€

~ 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!!! πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‚

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

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

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. πŸ˜‰

~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. πŸ˜€ I’d been friends with her online for a while, and it was so great to finally meet her! πŸ’–

And I have a TON more pictures, that will just have to wait till a later post. πŸ˜„ It was a great time though! πŸ˜€ ❀️

In April, I….

How was your month? Do you have any plans for May?

My Favorite Music for Writing

Standard

Hey Everyone!

One thing that I really love to do while I’m writing (or doing school, or anything really) is listening to music. It motivates me, helps me focus, and I enjoy the process a lot more. When I’m doing something that requires a lot of thinking, it’s best to listen to instrumental music, so the words don’t distract me. (Until I get distracted by the music video, of course.)

Today, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of my favorite music to listen to while writing. 9/10 of this list most definitely will not all be the Piano Guys. Ok, maybe it will. πŸ˜‚

Ok, so sometimes, depending on what I’m doing, I’m in the mood for listening to really slow, calm and relaxed music, and other times, I love more upbeat, faster and happy/exciting music. Lol XD So I’ll be listing these in two different categories for you, so you can listen to whichever you want! 😁

Calm and Relaxing

Faster and More Upbeat

Bonus Category: Epic/Dramatic

Those songs that just make me want to jump up and dance around the room – not that those songs didn’t. And I’ll uh, TRY to use something other than Piano Guys for once…. LOL! πŸ˜‚ 😁

I hope you guys enjoy this small compilation of music, and that it’s inspiring to you!

Love,

Rosy πŸ’– 🌻

Merry Christmas!

Standard

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!πŸ˜„πŸŽ„ I hope you have a wonderful day. Don’t forget about the true meaning of Christmas! God gave us the greatest gift ever when He sent us his son Jesus! We are so undeserving of His Mercy toward us. ❀️

Rosy

P.S. Here are a few Christmas songs for you to enjoy!

Songs for This Season

Standard
Songs for This Season

Hey, everyone! πŸ˜€

The last few weeks have pretty crazy. XD A lot of events have been canceled, including church all April, and many of us haven’t seen much of our friends in weeks. During this time, it’s important to remember that God is with us, no matter how alone we may feel. He is in total control, and nothing can happen without His knowledge. He is only good! ❀

Here are some songs that can comfort us during hard times, and remind us that God is still in control. πŸ™‚ ❀

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed this post, and that you check out these encouraging songs!

Beloved, let us love one Another – Acapella Video

Standard

Hi guys!

Here’s is an acapella song video I did yesterday, with the song Beloved, let us love one another. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

Β “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone whoΒ loves is born of God and knows God.Β 8Β He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”

The Music Tag!

Standard
The Music Tag!

Hi! I was really excited when Kassie tagged me for this music tag. Because I love music! Thanks Kassie!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ƒ
Rules:
  1. Write ten songs that come on shuffle (no skipping).
  2. Write your favorite lyric from each song.
  1. Tag some people.

 

  1. As Long as You are Glorified// Coffey Ministries

I love this song! God is still God during the good times, and the bad. ❀ 

“You are good when I’m poor and needy
You are true when I’m parched and dry
You still reign in the deepest valley
You’re still God in the darkest night”

2. You are Always Good// Majesty Music

“Looking up, I can see Your sympathy;
I doubt myself, but I’m sure of Your love.
Lavish grace was poured out at Calvary,
Securing me for our home above.”

3. Instead// Southern Raised

Jesus took our sin upon Himself and paid our penalty. What a Savior!

“His love became the ransom
For a dept I could not pay
My sin demanded justice;
Jesus made a way
Oh, I’m so grateful for the blood He shed
Β Instead”

4. He Is// Kevin Inafuku

“The loving hand that formed me and fills my heart with song,
The voice that stirs inside me when all hope is gone
The Morning Star that guides me,
The Light that goes before me,
The One’s who’s praise is on my lips, He is!”

5.Β He Who Began A Good Work In You// Steve Green

He is finishing the work He started in us, making us more and more like Christ.
“If the struggle you’re facing
Is slowly replacing your hope
With despair
Or the process is long
And you’re losing your song
In the night
You can be sure that the Lord
Has His hand on you
Safe and secure
He will never abandon you”

6.Β Whate’er My God Ordains is Right// Grace Community Church

Even when we don’t understand it, everything that comes to pass is in His good and perfect plan. ❀ 
“Whate’er my God ordains is right:
though now this cup, in drinking,
may bitter seem to my faint heart,
I take it, all unshrinking.
My God is true; each morn anew
sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart,
and pain and sorrow shall depart.”

7. Saved by the Blood// The Gospel Plowboys

“Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
Now ransomed from sin and a new work begun,
Sing praise to the Father and praise to the Son,
Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!”

8. Out of Ashes// Steve GreenΒ 

I really like this one!Β 
“Out of ashes into freedom
Out of dying into life
See the joy that’s set before us
In the blinding cross of Christ.”

9. King of Love/Β  Coffey Ministries

“And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never
Good Shepherd, may I sing Your praise
Within Your house forever.”

10. Blessings// Laura Story

This song has been an encouragement to me through hard times and trials in my life. ❀ 
“What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy.”
That was fun – thanks for tagging me, Kassie! πŸ˜€Β πŸ˜„
Ok, whom should I tag…? πŸ˜‰ πŸ™ƒ

And anyone else who wants to do this tag!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

I hope everyone is having a great day! πŸ™‚
