Time for my July "currently" post! :D I know a lot of these don't make sense since I'm not currently doing them anymore... (most of them). So just read it like this: this is currently what happened so far in July. Make sense? ;D
We had storms that caused flooding... we don't live by a river, so we weren't in danger. ;) But the field next to our house got a big "puddle"... otherwise you can call it a temporary pond that comes now and then. ;)
(the only editing I did on this picture is the coloring, BTW)
I really like this picture. I had my little sister throw a rock into the water so I could take action pictures. :) Speaking of action pictures, I did a post on action photography tips the other day. Click HERE to see it.
\\ CURRENTLY DONE
One thing we did so far this month, is our Fourth of July celebration. You may have seen THE POST on it. We went to the lake and hung out at the rocky shore, then watched fireworks from the boat later. Twas quite cool. :D
My 12 and 14 year old brother and sister had their friends over for their birthdays last week. We lit off some fireworks my mom had bought, so that was kind of fun. :)
I watched them play Dangerous Hunts 2 for a while earlier that day. I tried it the other day- eek, it can be scary! And fun, though I'm not too good. This one level I tried had lions... I died, of course. :P
So as I've mentioned before, I bought two books with the gift card I won. They're both here now! (I'm pretty sure The Captive Maiden came this month, so I'm qualifying it for a July buy. ;) And Resistance can count too, even though it came in June. :P)
Lovely, aren't they? :D
And yesterday I bought myself a memory stick in case I need it for my pictures while on vacation! It was about $5 for 8 gigabytes, so I think it'll serve me well. =)
We made salsa the 12th. :) We kept a little out fresh ('cause it's really good that way), but the majority got canned.
I took some pictures of the salsa making. ;)
I (mostly) made these delicious No-Bake Flourless Brownies from my sister's blog yesterday. :) I didn't make the topping though... it's healthier that way, but the topping is good. :)
I stole the picture of them from her blog. =D Hahaha, I'm so bad... um, no. I think I actually took that picture. :P Okay, never mind my weirdness...
Something I recently remade (of sorts) was my blog design. Did you notice? I really like it, especially the header! I think it's my best design so far. All the colors seem to just work perfectly together- the greens, purples, and then the sort of yellow-tan color. It's awesome how the camera picture and the one of me on the rock in the header both have a tan color in them to kind of match the background! (coincidence, by the way)
I'm not entirely sure if the purple in my design matched the flower picture in the header, but... it works. ;) For now, anyhow.
Ummm... A Lasting Impression.... still. :P
BUT I have a good excuse. I had to put this one on hold to advance read The Silent Blade for the blog tour.
My post for it is going to be on here the 23 of this month. I'll be gone, so I'm gonna schedule that post. Be sure to check it our though. :)
So yea, I read The Silent Blade and continued on with A Lasting Impression. What will I read next? Well, probably either Water Princess, Fire Prince or The Captive Maiden. :) Or possibly something else...
I bet you could never guess. :P Ha. Yes, my VACATION!!! :D :D :D I have a lot packed, but... eek, there's just so much to take! :0 (*whispers* or maybe my problem is that I just want to take too much clothes? :P)
So yea, we're leaving in a few daaayyysss!! :D
I'll have two posts scheduled for while I'm gone. First The Silent Blade blog tour on the 23rd, and then possibly a smoothie recipe some other time. :) But other than that...
...It's a farewell until August sometime. :) Hopefully you guys don't miss me too much (ha,ha) and prepare to be bombarded with a thousand million pictures when I get back on here! =D
