75 Blessings...

Friday, August 27, 2010

27. My birthday is coming soon!

28. I can type without looking at the keys, just like a proffesional!

29. My little siblings want me to be their teacher, because they are playing school. (I know it sounds weird, but trust me, it is cute. They will sit at the train table in one of the bedrooms, and do little crafts, sing songs, go over their letters, draw pictures, etc. Nothing hard like real school. My Dad even commented on the strangeness: “Hurry up, let’s finish school, so that we can play school!”)

30. I found a pretty little ring the other day. *sigh* How I love beauty.

31. I got to decorate  my binder for science this year, and I hot glued jeans fabric along the binding, with ribbons going across. Lovely!

32. I am going to give myself a manicure this afternoon, and I can't wait!

33. We get to have chicken enchiladas tomorrow for dinner, with guackamole, chips, and nacho cheese on the side. Yum!

34. My siblings are waiting for me. (and of course they wouldn't do that if they didn't love me!)

35.  This is home.

36. Life is good, but heaven is better.

37. We have a little liberty bell, and when it is rung, that means dinner time.

38. We just got a new bulletin board for our bedroom, with nice little flower tacks!

39.  I have so many blessings, that when I am finished with this post, I will remember all the blessings that I didn't list.

40. I have so many posts scheduled, that I feel very prepared for the days to come.

41. Dance starts in such a short time.

42. I get to start taking modern dance.

43. My new photography blog is going very well. Why not go over there and check it out? *wink wink*

44. I have 22 entries in my giveaway!

45. My little brother loves to play tennis with me in the back yard. We don't have a net, but we make a line, and decide whether it would have gone over the net or not. :)

The only thing I know, is that you use a "paper" from the scrapbook kit that you use for the rest of the blog. Any help is great.)

62. I have a lovely little beaded American flag bracelet. Love. It.

63. I know how to do a sock bun... :)

64. I found out that if you sleep more, your hair will grow faster. Isn't that great?

65. We might get to ply in the sprinkler this afternoon. Yes, I still do that. :)

66. I have seen both versions of Pride and Prejudice, and Sense and Sensibility.

67. I am saving up for a camera. (if you don't count that as a blessing, count this: I have to save up $450. If I ever get that much, it will be a blessing!)

69. I am halfway through with Algebra 1. If you have ever done Algebra 1, you will understand how horrid it its!

70. I cannot think of a title for my romance novel. Here is the synopsis:

Destiny Blair is a 17-year-old girl, with hopes and dreams of her own. Her best friend, Taylor Burke, is a young boy of 19.  But when a new man comes into town, Destiny starts spending less time with Taylor, and more time with the new man, Jack Adkins. When it is told to Destiny of something she never dreamed, her hopes for her future with Jack are shattered. Collin, the neighbor next door, proposes, and Destiny is stuck, with strings pulling her in three different directions. What path will she choose?
Can you, dear friends help me think of a title? First two commenters will get a blog button. (Won't that be fun?)
