March 2017

Woowww, guys. March... is over? Doesn't it seem like I just said how February flew by?! Time doesn't wait for anyone. ;P Maybe that's incentive for me to get on a better schedule, because the last few nights I've been staying up until midnight\one in the morning reading. *sheepish grin* Well actually, I've been doing that for probably much longer than that- staying up somewhat late at least. I'm just a night owl, and pair that with a good book... plus when I tried to go to bed at 11 something the other night, I didn't fall asleep till probably at least midnight anyhow.

*ahem* Long intro. So, time for the March highlights. 


\\ Hanging out with a new friend, and other homeschooled teens.

\\ My siblings found a site where you can play Donkey Kong for FREE, which I've told you about before. This might be the site. (visit at your own risk, I have no idea if it has viruses or whatever... just to be on the safe side. ;) ) 

\\ Went hiking through the wood with my dad and 12- and 14-year-old siblings. We got my dad's game cameras and looked for antler sheds. My dad found an old one and gave it to me. :)

I still haven't posted the pictures I took that day... so I'll have to do that sometime.

\\ Our homeschool co-op finished up last week. I learned some things in the photography class, which is just what I need! I also learned many defense moves in the self defense class and got a certificate of completion. ;) And the biology class was enjoyable. One day there were giant cockroaches, and... eww. Those were gross. ;P

\\ We've had a few thunderstorms and tornado warnings\watches. But spring is here! :)

\\ Practiced parallel parking and 3-point turns. :) I think parallel parking might not be as bad as I thought. I actually got a few\couple good parks practicing on my own. ;)


I did pretty good this month! *grins*

Love Me Tender by Janice Hanna

Super cute! <3

Faith by Lori Copeland

Enjoyable, but my least favorite this month.

The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof

Oh my, really good! Read my review here.

 I'm now reading A Time to Die by Nadine Brandes, which has been SO interesting so far!


\\ Clay roses

I made these from some regular kid's clay. I like how they turned out, but I don't really know how to harden them...

\\ Calligraphy 

I'm actually not entirely sure if I did these in March... 

I drew something as well, but... maybe not ready to show that yet. ;P I might need to tweak it more.


\\ Watching the latest episode of When Calls the Heart. *gasp* OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS SO GOOOOD! This season is finally getting really good! LOVED THAT EPISODE THOUGH! *sigh*

Jack! <3 <3

\\ The Lady and the Lionheart- I need this for my bookshelf. Look at that beautious cover!

\\ Love Me Tender was also sigh-worthy. And I already have that on my bookshelf! ;)

\\ My blog redesign and re-name *winks*


\\ My Eiffel Tower mug ;) 

\\ This mint green scarf- now one of my two favorite scarfs!

\\You can make quite a bit (to me anyhow) from selling bakery to your homeschool group. *winks* I now have money for my beach trip!

\\ Frozen cool whip + cocoa powder + chocolate chips = delicious!

\\ How to control the white balance on my camera beyond just switching it to "auto", "florescent", "direct sunlight" and all that. So, cool discovery! :)


\\ When you answer the phone and have to take a message. When you're as awkward and "clumsy" at it as me... ;P

\\When the sound of your lawn mower resembles a dirt-bike. *blink blink* Definitely something wrong there, haha.

\\ When your biology teacher tries to make you come up in front of everyone (at the end-of-co-op little program thing) and help with demonstrations. *blink* I'm an INTROVERT. You have to tell me I definitely have to go up beforehand. I could've gone up, but they gave up on me too soon. ;P

\\ Not wanting to go to bed until really late at night, and in the morning, not wanting to get up. Why? *face palm* I don't want to go to sleep when it's night, and I want to sleep when it's morning.

\\ When you're in your vehicle at the grocery store waiting for your mom, and some guy drops his cart off... not in the cart thing. Instead it hits your vehicle. People these days.

\\ The two-year-old brother catching all the toads. *winks*


\\ More spring

\\ The beach trip!!


I did twelve posts this month counting this one! :D


Daminika's March Photo Dump

Just a few. ;) There were more, of course.



  1. awwwwwwww!! You linked me!! thanks girl

    and you're photography is a YESSS

    also THE CART HIT YOUR CAR? yikes. I would freak o.o

    1. You're welcome! ;D

      Aww, thanks!

      Yea... it probably didn't hit very hard though. Then some guy came up because our window was partly opened, and told us (though we already knew). He moved it. ;) But people are so rude sometimes. ;P

  2. Ooh!! My post is on here!! *jumps up and down clapping*
    Ahem. Anyway. I liked this post a lot. ;P
    That frozen cool whip and stuff sounds amazing!!! *now wants some*
    Those clay roses!!!! <333
    Parallel Parking can be easy if you get to know your car. I drove a car I never drove before on my test drive and... *face palm* hahaha! ;P
    I have night owl problems too.*laughs* It'd be fun to have a sleepover together!! XD

    1. Yep, I always enjoy your photo dumps! ;D
      Aw, I'm glad. :)
      It is really good! And so simple... :)
      :D Glad you like them!
      Yea, I don't think I did too bad for my first time practicing, and with nobody out there coaching me. ;) Oh really?! Scary. ;P
      YES, it would! When I was younger I'd have sleepovers with my friends and they never seemed to want to stay up early. *frowns at them* haha. But I always thought it sounded fun to stay up really late with friends. ;)

  3. I enjoyed reading about all your monthly highlights, Natasha! It sounds like you had a great month. :)
    “Love Me Tender” looks like a good book! I hope to read it sometime. :)
    YES!! When Calls the Heart is just so wonderful!!!!!! :D :D
    Oh, you’re going to the beach? How fun!! :D The beach is one of my favorite places to be. :)

      YES! It'll be warm too, because it's in the south. ;) I love the beach!

  4. Hey, I've been mentioned! *gasps with surprise and joy*
    Those roses turned out so nice! <3 I wish I was as crafty as you, but my fingers are too clumsy, I guess. ;)
