Have you ever thought about how fast time passes? 'Cause it really passes fast! It was just summer, and now we are going to be seeing Christmas stuff everywhere. Prematurely, I know, but that's how ahead-of-time people these days start celebrating holidays. Last Christmas, (I think it was Christmas Eve?) I was at Dollar General, and there was ALREADY valentines day things out! Like, seriously! :P
OK, OK, back to business. To the highlights of October. :)
HAPPENINGS OF OCTOBER||
Weeellllll... er, what did we do? *looks back on my blog posts, since they're kind of like a public diary* OK.
\\ I started my photography site. I know you know that, if you're on of my "regular readers", but it happened this month, so I might as well say it. ;)
\\ Me and my sister re-did our room. (yep, you know that too! :P)
\\ I went garage saling and found lots of cool stuff! (and that...)
\\ We HAD a garge sale... which didn't turn out super great.
\\ I GOT MY PERMIT!! :D As you know. And I've been driving. I learned that driving is scary. :P Anyhow, in October, I got 2 hours and 40 minutes of driving time logged. That's a start. ;)
\\ I finished blogging about my trip to the West Coast! :)
\\ Our home-school group co-op classes ended. It was fun. :)
\\ I went to a youth event put on by people from our home-school group. They called it "redneck Olympics", and we had to do things such as pounding a nail into a stump, shooting cans, and a watermelon eating contest. I was basically forced to do the watermelon eating contest (since only one person on my team wanted to do it, and there had to be two), and I DID NOT want to do it! Didn't want to get messy, didn't want to look like a pig. :P So I took little bites and ate off the top peak. Pathetic, but I didn't even want to do the thing. ;P
Anyhow, I DID have fun at that event. After there was a campfire where we roasted marshmallows and hot-dogs, and then we played a game in the dark. My favorite part was probably when I actually got to talk to people. :) That's better than games.
\\ Didn't end up getting a harvest party done. :\ We could still do something, at least a fall get-together, but I don't know if we will. We just don't know how to get stuff planned! Maybe I'll plan a Christmas party instead... however far-off that is. Might as well start planning now, so it'll actually happen! ;)
READ IN OCTOBER||
Wow, I actually read a lot this month (for me)! Well, two of these are books I started before, but finished this month. ;)
Sweet Dreams by Robin Jones Gunn
I bought this because it was the next book I needed... and it was pretty cheap, too. :) So now I think I only have one more book to read in The Christy Miller series! :)
The Captive Maiden by Melanie Dickerson
Yea, I was reading this in September... but I finished it this month. Twas good! :)
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
One of my classes in co-op (just a "fun" one) was going to be having trivia questions of this book, so I started reading it. I've watched the movies, but of the books, I had only read The Horse and His Boy. What better time to start finishing the series? :) I enjoyed this one.
The River by Beverly Lewis
I started this WAY back when I was still on vacation. :P But it wasn't that interesting, so I put it aside for other books. I just recently picked it back up and finished it. All-in-all, it was an enjoyable read. :)
WATCHED IN OCTOBER||
God's Not Dead 2
This was a good movie. :) I think I might have liked the first one better, though.
I also watched some of these movies called Revelation Road. They're about the end times, and I don't really recommend them. I watched maybe most of the second one, and was watching the third- and that's when I stopped, because there was some disturbing things. Not my type of movie. They're not exactly bad. They're just not what I like to watch, and the disturbing part seemed unnecessarily dramatized.
I re-watched this with my sister, who had never watched it. I really like it. :) For those of you who haven't seen it, it's a good movie. It's about a girl who's mom tried to abort her, and she finally finds out years later from her adopted parents. It's an inspirational movie, both funny and touching. :) Oh, and there's a smidgen of romance, which I found sweet. ;)
It's a Wonderful Life
I also re-watched this, just last night, with my 14 and 9 year-old sisters. :) My brother watched some of it, but he must've thought it was kind of boring (or a combination of that and not liking the romance. ;P) But he did laugh at some parts, I think. The end (where he's "rejoicing" over his cut and crashed car and all) is so funny! ;P
POSTS OF OCTOBER||
Guys, I have already broken my record of posts from 2015... 81 in 2015, and 88 so far in 2016. :D This month I did 12.
As for future posts... OK, maybe I just won't name them off. :P Why is it that I NEVER seem to run out of things to post? Maybe that's a good thing, but it also has me spending a lot of time on here. Anyhow, be looking for more posts. As if you have to LOOK. ;D
LOOKING FORWARD TO IN LAST 2 MONTHS OF THE YEAR!||
\\ New Year! =D ... 2017... O.O ONLY TWO MONTHS LEFT OF THIS YEAR! WHAT?! I TOLD YOU. TIME FLIES!
OK, there's more than that, but these are the big things (obvious as they are...).
Anyhow, I hope you had a good October! And have a WONDERFUL November!! =D
