Guten-tag, blog readers!
Today I have another tag to share. Marrok at Marrok Macintyre has created a tag, A Day in Life Explained by Gifs, and has kindly tagged me, so here I am. :)
The main point of this tag is just random fun.
So, without further ado, here’s a day in my life in gif form (and yes, mine will be exaggerated a bit. Because why not!):
Wake up. XD
Have my cup o’ tea.
Wade through the snow to go do chores.
Come in and have some breakfast. Very exciting.
Try to write. Sometimes ends in chaos and throwing things.
Get the mail and find something for me.
Read, of course.
Find out my nephews are coming over.
Chaos insues as my nephews run wild. (They’re adorable though – cuter than minions!)
Feeling triumphant to survive the 3 mini-tornados
Talk to my cats. Cuz I can.
Be weird. This is actually an all day thing…
Go to sleep. XD
As for who I tag…

**None of these gifs belong to me. Also, this isn’t really a completely acurate description of a typical day for me, but dat’s okay. XD Like it said in the beginning, this is just for fun.
This will most likely be a short post because…well, I don’t feel I have much to write about. I’m kinda boring. XP Life has been busy, and I just haven’t had a lot of time/motivation to write up blog posts, so I do apologise. I keep hoping for some blog-post-inspiration to hit, but…I guess I’m still waiting. :D
How are you? I hope everything is well in your world. And if not, I hope you are finding vast amounts of comfort in our Lord and Savior. I’ve been running to Him plenty, and so thankful to be under the shadow of His wings!
Are you reading anything? I am currently advance-reading “The Flaming Sword” by Heather FitzGerald. It’s the second book in her Tethered World Series. And yep, this will actually be a review book.
I have mostly been reading review-free books, and it has been very nice. Though an occasional review-book isn’t so overwhelming anymore, because they’re not numerous. And I’m still not on the blogging-review programs.
Eventually, I will have a review up for “The Cautious Maiden” by Dawn Crandall that I advance-read recently – looking forward to that! It was a book I very much enjoyed. :)
I also read “Courageous” by Dina Sleiman recently, and also enjoyed that one. It was a great addition to her Valiant Hearts series. I have one or two concerns about it, faith-wise, but other than that it was a great read.
I can’t go without saying that I’ve also read a How To Train Your Dragon book, because of obvious reasons. I love HTTYD. :D
I’ve been writing a bit lately, which is nice. A newish story that I’m really enjoying. I need to be editing…but I know God will bring that about in the perfect time too.
Soo….what else is there to say? I’m enjoying following along on Shantelle’s blog series, “Hidden Gems” right now where every Monday she posts about a new lesser-known author, and there’s a fun giveaway in each, and then Sarah Holman is having a Summer Extravaganza, with a giveaway every day of this month. So, lots of fun, and you might want to check both of those out. :)
I guess that’s about it for now…maybe you’ll see me posting again sometime soon…I can hope! :)
Go in the peace and grace of God! :)
Update. That’s what the title means. XD I can just be weird, because I can.
(gif from Pinterest. No, we don’t watch Frozen, but it was the only gif I could find of someone waving. ^.^ Plus, I do like Anna. And Kristoff. Definitely Kristoff.)
It’s been a while, my poor neglected blog. But sometimes I just run out of inspiration/energy to post…so I do apologize. I’m not sure I really have anything interesting to say, so this may be exceedingly random.
I have posts I need to get done – a review book *still* (I keep forgetting about it!!), a tag or two, and probably something else I am forgetting. But here I am doing a random post. A Life post. Because that’s what this is. Life.
So, what have I been up to, ay? Ummm….it’s summer, it’s hot, there’s always something do to, and when there isn’t, I’m chilling. Reading some, but mostly trying to rest. Okay, so I don’t always do so good at it, but I am trying.
“And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”...yes, God has given me that verse recently.
I hope and want to chose that which is needful – Jesus. Sitting at His feet. Giving Him my worry and stress.
I’ve been trying to keep up a constant journal, but have recently been slacking. And that’s okay. I don’t need to keep on top of everything all of the time.
Yes, I’ve been reading, but not as fast. I’ve tried a couple new books, but the past few haven’t been as satisfying. Right now I’m simply reading a Dear America, because I wanted something that wasn’t severely emotionally-draining.
I did recently try “A Time to Die” by Nadine Brandes finally. Shortly put, it wasn’t for me. And if you’re a soft/sensitive-spirit kind of person, I’d say it’s not for you either.
Really, there hasn’t been a great deal of time to read – or rather, God has been showing me that it’s not as important. He hit me with the hard question of “Why do you read?” Umm…I wanted to say “Because I enjoy it”, but that’s only half true. Eeek, hard to admit, but the truth is, reading can be an addiction. I pass it off, because “it’s fun! People read, it’s a good thing”, and to an extent, it is. Reading is amazing! But priorities matter. Addiction matters. Because it puts it above God. It becomes an idol, and I don’t want that. I don’t want reading to become who I am. To become more important than my Savior. So if I sit on the couch and just breathe, that’s alright. In fact, that’s great. God-time is so much more important than reading. Than getting things done. And I’m not saying I do this all the time now. I wish I did. But if you know me, you know that doing absolutely nothing is hard for me – I often have to force myself to really be still. I want to be doing, not be sitting still. God’s working on me though! And hallelujah for that. He’s working in all of us. We need only let Him.
Chores consume a great deal of our time….we have plenty of outside animals to keep us occupied. And recently, we’ve had to deal with the reoccurring skunk problem. One was in the barn the other evening – of course Dad had to dispatch it, but it still stinks out there, and we know there’s got to be more causing the horrible smell because the skunk we dealt with was several days ago, and it still smells like it just happened…ick!
And as random and jumbled as this post may be, I’m leaving it off here. Time for bed!
What’s new in your life, dear reader? Thank you for reading this post. I appreciate you!
Ahaha, I wish I got a book order that big! Wouldn’t want to pay for it though…ouch! XD
However, on a serious note: my 2 books I recently ordered online finally came yesterday!!! So happy! They are:
“Destiny Defended” and “Family Lies, Deadly Ties” both by the wonderful J.A.Marx!!! I am so happy to complete my collection of The Destiny Series, and own a print copy of FLDT because it’s amazing. <3 And of course I had to take a couple pictures of my J.A. Marx book collection….
Aren’t they so pretty?! So happy! And here’s a pic of them on my shelf, because…obviously it’s needed:
It’s not the best picture, I know, but I blame it on our not-so-good camera. Anyway. I’ve placed them on my ‘favourites’ shelf. :)
So, there we go. Just wanted to share my excitement!! Have you ordered any books recently? (Next on my list is “Samara’s Peril” by Jaye L. Knight!)
I made up the name for this tag, as I am unsure if it has one…I was nominated for it by the lovely Shantelle on Google+ and decided to do the tag here on my blog instead. :) So, here it is:
Role model: My Mum – so thankful for her godly example!
Hobbies: Reading, writing, being on the computer (yep, it’s a hobbie. ;)), knife/tomahawk throwing, and letter-writing.
Crush: If I have one, why would I tell?! ;) I guess I could say Mr. Thornton (North and South), or Noah (“Family Lies, Deadly Ties”), or Jace (!! “Ilyon Chronicles”), or Walter (“A Distant Melody”), or any number of my other fictional crushes. ;) Haha.
Best friend: This is information I am not at liberty to disclose. Ahahaha. XD
Favorite band: TobyMac. Mmmhhmmm. And Tenth Avenue North is great too. And some other ones. But mainly, TobyMac.
Favorite Song: Right now? Hmmm…I don’t know. ?? How’s that for an answer.
Favorite Movie: “Wives and Daughters”, “North and South”, “Persuasion”, the How to Train Your Dragon movies (of course!), and I know I’m forgetting some….
Favorite animal: Cats! Yep, definitely cats. I love them. :) I also love elephants, and mules, and guinea-pigs, and other cute creatures. Oh and Dragons. ;)
Favorite subject: I am out of school, but favourite always was history I suppose. =)
Pens or pencils? Probably pens, as I use them more, but I do love a sharp pencil!
Summer or winter: This is so easy – Winter. I love it, and I never get sick of it. :)
Tea or coffee: Definitely tea. I don’t drink coffee.
Good day or bad day: It’s only just begun…I’m gonna say good day though since that’s what I want. :)
Birthday: That’s for me to know, and you to never find out. Muahaha. XD Okay, not really. But I’m still not tellin’. It’s sometime in the Fall. ;)
Tag the follower you’ve known the longest:
Tag five of your best internet friends: I’m going to break the rules and not do this, only because I don’t want to unintentionally forget to list someone and then hurt their feelings due to my forgetfulness. So friends, you know who you are and I deeply appreciate each one of you!! Truly, I do. My internet friends are amazing and I am very thankful for ye all. :)
Something that makes you happy: Receiving letters in the mail – and any kind of mail, really. I loooove getting mail. That’s gonna be a mandatory for my future beau – he has to write me letters. ;) Haha, don’t know how he’ll like that one, but we’ll see. XD Other things that make me happy are pretty rolls of washi-tape, my cats, getting online messages from me friendsys, and knives/swords/tomahawks. Those make me happy too.
Something you’re looking forward to: Receiving the books I recently purchased by one of my favourite authors (J.A. Marx), and getting caught up on my old review-books so I can properly enjoy my Sabbatical. I’m sure there’s other things more exciting to look forward to, I’m just drawing a blank. XD
Tell a story in one sentence: “Once upon a time, there was a maiden writing a blog post about a tag, and she was asked to tell a story in one sentence, which perhaps seemed a bit daunting to her at the moment because her mind was not wanting to produce something of that creative order, so instead the maiden settled on this rambling sentence and left it at: The End.”
Have a good day!
No, I’m not actually going to do a post on the Sound of Music. Hehe. ^.^
I was tagged by Faith at Stories by Firefly! for this tag, called “These are a Few of My Favourite Things”, and thus I shall do it! Here are the rules:
So, there’s ten things I love! And now for who I tag…
