Another Snow Day

Well, I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of my car in a ditch, because my dad’s way home he drove it out of the ditch. After he got home and changed, I got snow driving lessons and I am now fairly comfortable driving up and down our driveway (it’s a mile long and all gravel). Last night I got a text message from one of my friends stating that there was no school again. I was fairly surprised. The first thing I did was get on the internet and check to see if it was true. I trust my friend but as the saying goes seeing is believing.
Here are some more snow pictures

This is an intresting stump I found.

A bluebird house surroned by snow.

The half-frozen pond.

A intresting looking tree covered in snow.

The day in the life of a teenager – Snow Day

8:00 a.m. – Wake-up
8:01 a.m. – Go back to sleep
9:00 a.m. – Watch TV and take a nap
10:45 a.m. – I decide to go for a walk outside and take pictures of the snow. The dog, Maggie, goes with me, in reality I should say that we go walking in the same place. I walk around and she just ran all over and ate snow.
12:00 p.m. – My mom and I decide to go out for lunch. We have a mile long gravel driveway and I want to drive so I could get some experience driving in the snow.
12:05 p.m. – I am driving up the big hill and my car slides into the ditch.
12:20 p.m. – I walk home to get my mom’s car so I can go pick my mother up.
12:30 p.m. – I call my father and tell him I slid my car into the ditch and he laughed at me.

Here are some pictures from my walk, I will post pictures of my car tomorrow.

This is a picture of my house - it is really a log cabin in the middle of the woods.
This is snow stuck to a tree, I thought it looked cool.
This is the 1 acre pond, it is mostly frozen over.
This is my dog Maggie, she in NOT a Dalmation she is an Enlgish Setter.
This is my chicken Annabelle on our deck. She is the sole suvivor of the animal that raided my chicken house. She on lives on the front porch and eats cat food.

The "Firehouse"

Well this picture is of the upstairs of the “firehouse”. I know it looks fairly messy, but that is how I work. In the picture you can see my mother in the background. She helps out a lot. She is my financier and my consulting partner. I design my piece and she tells me what she thinks. A funny story was I had designed a bracelet and was starting to put it together and when I held it up to show her she said I should make it into a necklace and this piece was born.

Back to my workshop, you can see the pasta machine, I commandeered from my mom’s kitchen. Speaking of things I commandeered, in reality I commandeered the whole workshop. My parents originally built the “firehouse” to build kites in and by kites; I mean big ones that can fill a 10 ft. by 10 ft. room (I am not kidding). Well in truth they haven’t built a new kite since I was born and it was available when I need some where to work.

You know your family is obsessed with Harry Potter when?

Do you think your family is obsessed with Harry Potter? Well, I know mine is. I never realized it until now. Here is a list of reasons why my family is obsessed with Harry Potter.

  1. In my families dinner time conversation, Harry Potter or some other part of the wizarding world is mentioned at least 3 times a week (my family has a sit down dinner together 7 days a week).

  2. My family jokes about wishing they had Harry Potter powers.

  3. The seven Harry Potter books are spread throughout the house.

  4. Each family member has read all seven books at least 5 times.
  5. Today, my parents decided that J.K. Rowling stole her story line from Star Wars
    a. Luke = Harry Potter
    b. Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi = Albus Dumbledore
    c. C-P3O = Ron Weasley
    d. R2-D2 = Hermione Granger
    e. Hans Solo = Fred or George Weasley
    f. Chewbacca = Fred or George Weasley
    g. Princess Lela = Ginny Weasley
    h. Darth Vader = Lord Voldemort

I do realize that there can be some debate on some of the characters, but this is what we decide while out in the “firehouse” today. To see someone else’s opinion on who which characters are which please click here.

New Product

The past couple of days I have been working hard on learning to transfer photos on to polymer clay. I’m currently having problems, but I fully expect to have some completed ones by the end of next week. I really shouldn’t call them photo transfer. The images I’m transferring are custom art work designed by my mother. My mom found th

is cool graphic’s program, and she spends far too much time making these works of art. I have tried to use the program but I cannot understand how to use it.

School started back today. I had my usual amount of running around to get everything ready, but I couldn’t find my calculator (which sucks). I got to school on time (just barely). A great way semester is to have a test in physics to start the day. Calculus was as hard as ever. I still don’t understand limits and this is the second semester of calculus. Biology II is going to be everything I expected it to be. I get to have my favorite teacher and it is going to be a fun class. My last class of the day is peer tutoring. I get to help other students and get to do my own homework.

Heres a radom picture from my trip to the zoo over the summer. I love meerkats, they are so cute.

I’m finding that bluffing is harder than I thought it would be. It is really hard to find something to write about everyday. I have made a New Year’s Resolution to try and blog at least 5 days a week ( I know New Years was several days ago, but its never to late to start a Resolution So today I bought a journal and plant to keep it with me and write on things when I think of them, so I can have more blog entries.
