Goodbye Summer 2019//feat. Summer Goals Update

Hey Everyone!

I have had a wonderful summer. It was fun and chaotic and amazing. I spent hours every day reading and my love of books has only grown, which I didn’t even know was possible!

We took a day trip to the ocean with my amazing Tia and had an awesome time! I haven’t ever had so much fun at the ocean, we played in the waves and had a picnic lunch, it was just a wonderful day.

My dad grilled so many times this summer! I don’t think I will ever get tired of grilled food, just about everything just tastes so much better when you cook it on the grill. Summer squash and zucchini covered in olive oil with some garlic and salt grilled is to die for. I already miss it.

I fell in love with my hammock. Not necessarily for sleeping in, but definitely for reading, boondoggling, resting and listening to music in. It was where I did most of summertime reading.

My summer was sort of split in half, before camp and after camp. Before camp I was productive, I walked, jogged or something every day, I wrote and took pictures and baked. After camp I did my chores, made bread, slept, ate and read and read some more. Honestly I liked the second half of my summer best (who wouldn’t :), which surprises me, because usually I like to get things done and to be productive. I am glad that I let myself just relax and read for awhile, it made it easier in some ways to start school again.

All that said, let’s get on to finding out how I did on my summer goals!


Summer Goals Update

Life:

(1) Keep up with my very small outdoor chores. ✔️

(2) Take pictures daily or at least often. I took pictures in spurts, sometimes taking many and often taking none, so I guess I did it…sort of. ✔️

(3) Take walks three to four times a week. Nope, I definitely did not take walk daily or even weekly, after June.

(4) Spend time with our dogs. Sort of. I mean, I spent a couple of afternoons in our basement during thunderstorms, with one of our livestock guard dogs, Zip. ✔️

Blogging:

(1) Post weekly throughout the summer. X

(2) Post at least one book review. I posted the mini-reviews at the beginning of the summer. ✔️

Reading:

(1) Read and review three YA contemporary novels. I read three Ya contemporary novels, but I didn’t review them (at least not yet).

(2) Read about 75 to 100 books, bringing me close to completing my Goodreads reading challenge. I’m not exactly sure how many books I read this summer, bu I am currently at 210 books read in 2019 on Goodreads (which i think is pretty good :).

(4) Read two biographies. X

I am really excited to be getting back to blogging. This summer was a break I hadn’t realized I needed until I stopped. I am looking forward to getting back into blogging as this school year is starting, thanks for being patient and understanding when I didn’t do the all the posting I had hoped to.

This year I am hoping and planning to be sharing more book related and more actual writing alongside of my photography. At the moment I thinking that I will be posting weekly, maybe a bit more as I post pictures from the summer.

I am really excited to be beginning my second year of blogging! Thank you to all of you who have been following me from the very beginning. I love reading and responding to your comments!

How was your summer? What was a highlight of your summer? Has school started for you?

Summer Photos//feat. Random Things About My Summer

Hey Everyone!

I’ve taken a bunch of pictures this summer and I am (of course) excited to share them with you all as I tell you a bit about my summer. So let’s not bother with a meaningless intro.


I got to spend an amazing week at summer camp. I am so thankful for the wonderful memories I made and the time I got to spend there.

My grandparents visited, It was good to see them and the time flew by as it always does.

I have gotten to go (big) blueberry picking twice. Although I do not enjoy it as much as strawberry picking it is still something I love.

Reading everyday for several hours is my favorite part of summer. I have read more books than I can count, well not quite but close. One of my favorite places to read is in my wonderful Wise Owl hammock, that I got for Christmas last year.

As I have mentioned before I love fresh, local veggies, and being able to work with them has definitely been a highlight of my summer. I love making salads for my mom, using whatever fresh veggies we have around.

Life here on the farm has been as crazy and wonderful as it always is during the summer, non-stop work for my parents and lots of sunshine.

It is so hard for me to believe that the summer is already so close to being over. Summer always flies by, unlike winter, unfortunately.

I keep having to remind myself to enjoy August and not constantly be thinking about how sad I am that it is August.

I love fall and I love spring and sometimes I enjoy winter, but nothing ever compares to summer, ever. In some ways all fall and winter we live for spring and summer, especially if you are a farmer. We have to prepare for calving and then cheesemaking and then haying and markets and the list goes on and on.

It’s always hard to come to August and realize that summer is almost over, you look at your summer goals and are amazed by all that you haven’t accomplished and all you want to do before summer is over.

Honestly, I am nowhere near ready for the new school year to start and whatever challenges it will bring my way, so I am going to enjoy every last moment and hour day of my summer.

I challenge you to enjoy every last minute, day and hour of your summer (or at least as much of it as possible). 🙂


How has your summer been? What are some things you are hoping to accomplish this month? Do you have a favorite picture from this post?

Summer Goals + Bucket List 2019

Hey Everyone!

I am so excited to share my summer goals and bucket-list with you guys! I have been waiting for summer since January, and I am sure I am not the only one. To be honest though it really doesn’t seem possible that it is already June even though it has been around 80 degrees and super sunny the past couple days. Perfect laundry days! I have hung so much laundry the past few days it is absolutely ridiculous! How do my brothers go through so much clothes!? 😀

We just finished school! I can’t believe that I am already done (I do still have a reading that I have to do but otherwise)!! One of my favorite parts of being homeschooled is that we get to stop whenever we are done, I feel bad for all of you who still have another week or two left of school. Hang in there!

Anyway, without further ado, here we go!


Update On My Spring Goals

(1) Go barefoot outside while the ground is still spongy and cold. ✔️

(2) Take more walks. Yes and no. For most of the spring I wasn’t much more active then I was all winter, but in the past month or so I have been making more of an effort and taking quite a few more walks.

(3) Stay consistently active on my blog. Nope, definitely not. I am quite happy with all of my posts this spring, though. That counts for something, right?

(4) Make homemade pasta. I was really hoping to get to this but wasn’t able to.

(5) Finish school. YES! I did it. ✔️

(6) Read and review at least three YA contemporary novels. Sort of completed, I read and rated them. ✔️

(7) Get back into the stretching every night. Unfortunately, no. I just haven’t been motivated.

(8) Take at least one picture everyday. I took many, many pictures this spring, probably on average it was about one a day. ✔️

(9) Read my Bible more often. I feel so sad realizing that I totally forgot about this goal.

(10)Work on writing about things that I am passionate about. I did do a little bit of writing about things I am passionate about, like cooking and Michelle Obama’s book Becoming. ✔️

What is on your summer bucket-list? Do you have any summer goals? Do you have any fun plans for your summer? When do you finish school?

A Little Adventure

Hey Everyone!

I can’t believe it is June first!! May flew by for me, filled with school and lots of rain (and reading). It was a pretty good month in a lot of ways, but I am very glad it is June.

School is almost over for my siblings and I. Our last official day of school was this past Friday. We just have some random stuff to finish up. I really cannot believe that my first year of high school is just about over and that every year I get closer and closer to being done with school for good, I am not far away from being totally done, especially if I don’t go to college. Anway, summer vacation here I come!

Well, by now I am sure you are wondering what my title “a little adventure” is all about, so I guess I should tell you. So about a month ago, my mom took my sisters, littlest brother and I too Rhode Island for a day trip. We had so much fun and I am thrilled to share some of the pictures I took!

We stopped in Newport to see the ocean. Where we went first there was basically just a huge space of rock by the ocean.

There were some little tidal pools that my younger siblings loved looking in. I think they found a couple little snails in one of them.

The rock was absolutely beautiful, the colors and all the little ridges and lines.

My sister Catherine and I had a wonderful time taking pictures of each other the whole day. I love this picture of me and one my sisters looking out at the ocean!

After we ate lunch we went the cliff walk in Newport.

I love the rocks and the ocean together!!!

Here a couple of the pictures I took of Catherine. I love how the wind it playing with her hair!

It was really amazing to drive by some of the really old (and new) mansions in Newport. what a beautiful place and so full of history ( like just about everywhere in New England).

I LOVE the ocean, about as much as I love chocolate and that is really saying something. One of my semi-attainable dreams is to spend some time living by the ocean. I just can’t get over the beauty of the ocean. It always makes me feel so small and insignificant and brings fresh amazement to me that the God who created the vast ocean actually cares about me.

The last stop of our “little adventure” was at a really cool tulip farm. They have a bunch of amazing different types! Every color you can imagine! They have pick-your-own tulips and also what they call their show garden, where I took all these pictures.

We heard about it from one of my uncles and his family. My aunt likes to take pictures of my cousins there and after seeing some of her pictures my mom couldn’t wait to go! I am so glad we made it, I have never seen so many tulips in my life! It was really an amazing experience.

I think this might be my new favorite color. Isn’t it amazing how the edges are lighter and as it goes to the center the color darkens and deepens?!

If I ever get married I want to have a spring wedding and I want my flowers to be white tulips and purple lilacs. The white tulips are just so white and clean looking, I can’t get over them.

Doesn’t this look more like a peony then a tulip?!

On the sides of the show garden there were these flower beds with all of the different tulips mixed together. I think that was my favorite part of the garden.

Wow, that was a long post with lots of photos. I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner! I really hope that you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed putting it together (not sure that’s possible though)!

Do you love the ocean? Can you pick a favorite tulip picture? What is a semi-attainable dream of yours? Do you ever do photo-shoots with your siblings?

Liebster Award #2, #3, #4

Hey Everyone!

I keep getting nominated for this award! It seems like maybe everyone is running out of bloggers to nominate? Not that I mind being nominated! I love answering fun questions about myself and what I love.

Thank you to Maysa, Olivia and Farmgirl for these nominations!

I’m really excited to answer all these questions, so let’s jump right in!


My Answers

1: What is something that you really enjoy doing?

Reading is still my favorite way to spend my free time. It is as natural and easy to me as breathing.

2: Do you have a pet peeve or something that you can’t stand?

It drives me crazy when my siblings don’t close their drawers or the kitchen cabinets. I’m not sure why but it does.

3: What was the last movie that you watched?

The first Hobbit movie. My siblings have already seen all three of them with my grandpa, but at the time I wasn’t interested, so now my dad and I are watching them for the first time. I am still surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie, because as a general rule I much prefer light-hearted movies to serious or intense ones.

4: Is there something that you feel like you just can’t live without?

CHOCOLATE, I intensely love chocolate and could almost live on it.

5: What is your favorite genre of music?

Christian music, I guess. That is most of what I listen to.

6: What is one piece of advice that you have for other bloggers based off of your personal experience?

Hmmm. I guess don’t try to write about things that you don’t enjoy and to be yourself as much as possible.

7: Would you be brave enough to jump out of a plane flying several thousand feet in the air without a parachute for someone you love? (considering it is for a good cause)

Yes, if it would save their lives, but if it wasn’t absolutely necessary I would not.

8: If you had all the Legos in the world to build with, what would you build first?

A life-sized aqua convertible. Not sure why, but I would.

9: What are your thoughts on lying? Lying is a sin, but do you think there is ever a time when it is right to lie? (Consider Jonathan and Rahab and the lies they told to help others in danger. Find as many Bible verses as you would like to support your answer)

Honestly, I am not sure. Yes and no, I guess.

10: Would you prefer having tea or coffee with talking red foxes or with talking deer?

I would love to have tea with talking red foxes.

11: What is one character flaw you hope will someday be a thing of the past with God’s help?

Probably how easily I get annoyed with my sisters.

12: If you were to go on one long journey from history, which journey would you make? (Example, with Columbus when he discovered America, or with Lewis and Clark on their expedition. Pick any journey or expedition from history.)

I would have wanted to go west with the pioneers. They were so brave take the risk of leaving everything they knew and loved to make a new life for themselves.

13: What is your favorite book of all time (besides the Bible)?

I really can’t choose. It’s like asking me if I have a favorite sibling (which I most definitely do not)!

14: What is one animal you dream of owning?

Someday, when have more time I would love to own a horse again.

15: Would you rather fill a journal with only drawings or fill a journal with only poems?

I would rather fill a journal with only drawings and doodles.

16: If you had everyone’s attention in the whole world and they promised to listen to you for one hour, what would you tell them?

That is so difficult to even imagine! The first thing I would tell would be that God loves them, no matter what you have done.

17: What inspired you to start blogging?

I first discovered WordPress through the blog Tween You And Me. I immediately loved the blogging community and slowly got more involved, it seemed natural to want a blog and when my parents said yes, I was thrilled!

18: What is your favorite instrument to listen to?

Pianos for sure.

19: What is your favorite sport to watch?

I am not really someone who enjoys watching sports, but I do love watching gymnastics and ice dancing.

20: What is your favorite season and why?

I think spring is my favorite season, although I do love summer as well. I love watching all the new life come forth.

21: What is your favorite flower?

My favorite flowers are lilacs and roses, I also love quince flowers.

Mini-Update

I know that I have been pretty much MIA for the past month and I am sorry. Life gets busy in the spring and I just needed a break. I will most likely be taking another couple week break in June, but I definitely want to keep blogging.

I am done with Weekly Verses for this school year, I will probably bring them back in the fall though. My thought for my summer posting schedule is that it will be more relaxed and probably only one post a week. I’ll keep you all updated though.


I’d love to hear how your May has been so far!! Did any of my answers to the questions surprise you? Feel free to answer any of the questions!

Spring Photos!!

Hey Everyone!

I am really excited to show you some of the pictures I have been taking. I am so so happy that spring is fully here! Everything is so green and beautiful. I love seeing all the new life springing up.

I have decided that spring is my favorite season. It is so beautiful and warm, but not hot. There aren’t the pesky flies and mosquitoes of summer but you still can enjoy the green grass and sunshine!



The lilac leaf buds are opening and growing constantly! It won’t be much longer until we have lilacs.

Forsythia is so bright and colorful. We have a rather wild hedge of it in front of our house.

The beautiful red maple full of buds.

Aren’t these red maple buds amazing!

More red maple buds, further along. Leaves are coming soon!


I am probably going to be posting another collection of spring photos soon, so be watching for it!

Which picture is your favorite? Did these springy pictures bring even a small smile to your face? What is you favorite part of spring?

Photo Collab!!!

Hey Everyone!

I am really happy to (finally) share this photo collab with you! Without further ado…………………………………………………………………………………………………………..Here you go!

So how we did this was we (Lauren, Kaelyn and I) each came up with three topics and we had to either take or find pictures we had taken before for each topic. It was really fun to come up with each picture. 😀


Starting with my topics:

Winter: My winter has been full of snow so for winter I thought that it had to be a picture of snow.

Snowflakes:

Trees:

Kaelyn’s Topics:

Cooking/Baking:

Playground:



Fun: My brothers have so much fun on their mini-bike so I chose this picture.

Lauren’s Topics.

Animals: A picture of our beautiful dogs, from the summer!

Books: I’m not really a fan of how this picture turned out, but I’ve never tried taking pictures of books before. Maybe I just need more practice?

Cozy: I’m re-using my first BIBPC photo.


What did you think of this collab? Which picture is your favorite? Is there anything that you would like to have me post about? I’m open to suggestions!

BIBPC #6: Category 7

Hey Everyone!

Here is my BIBPC picture! I am so sad this is my last entry. I hope that Megan does another BIBPC again soon.

BIBPC #6 Team Bear

Team Bear is still in the lead, by a bunch! I am very confident we will win!

Category seven is INVINCIBLE! I had trouble coming up with something but my mom suggested using a picture of the sun so here you are:

Do you like my picture? What would you have done with for invincible?

I will be posting my usual Friday post tomorrow. I’m quite excited about it. 😀

Snow Photos!

Hey Everyone!

I am really happy to (finally) share the pictures I took a couple weeks ago of the snow. I thought about waiting another week since we are getting more snow, but I want to share them today. Just warning you, though, I will probably be posting more snow photos soon. 😀


I love how the snow on the green grass looks. In person the grass was even greener.

This picture makes me think of a brook. I love the contrast of the dark wet rocks to the fresh white snow.

More snowflakes, the reddish color of the stump is so beautiful.

More snowflakes and moss. ❤️


The orange fungus, white snow, dark bark combo is so pretty!

Snowflake and bark close up. I love this picture. I think this one is my favorite from this bunch of pictures.

One of our barn cats, Maya. She let me take quite a few pictures of her. This one turned out the best. 😀


Which picture is your favorite? Why??

Thanks for taking the time to scroll through all these photos! I am excited to hear what you thought of them in the comments!

So sorry that this post is a couple days late! I was having trouble with our computer.
