Day 71 of Summer

I am tired, and lazy, and having the emotional equivalent of a bad head cold, but I did manage to paint something that I really like. It's not done yet, but here's a preview.

Day 70 of Summer

Yesterday I was still quite tired from the three sleepovers in a row. The highlight of my day was going to starbucks with the family, and then finding a really cute dress for 3.49 (half off) at good will. I love shopping!!

Day 69 of Summer

Saturday, I had a THIRD sleepover in a row, with some friends in tents in one of their backyards. It was super fun, of course, but I was reeeally tired after wards.

As you probably noticed, I spaced on a picture AGAIN. This project has been hard lately...maybe I'll try something after this is over, with just blogging and no pictures. Then I might have more energy for longer, more thoughtful, expressive (aka whiny) blog posts.

Day 68 of Summer

Friday I slept over at Sofia's, and we did...guess what?! DIVINING! I won't go into it, but we made this weird protection pattern out of chalk, and lit candles, and were generally creepy. She also made me a delicious dinner and desert, which was amazing.

Day 67 of Summer

Thursday morning, more Divining. Truman made me this awesome spin-y thing to put my oracle cards on. We're so weird.

Day 66 of Summer

I'm SO behind!

Wednesday was our hangout day, which was awesome as always. We walked to the park in my giant hula hoop again. I really don't know why we do it. It's really uncomfortable, but it's strangely fun, and everyone does it for some reason.
Then I slept over at Truman's house, where stayed up until 1ish "divining" with every method we could think of. Oujia board, tarot, apples to apples, pendulum, paper fortune tellers, drawing names out of hats, etc. Fun fun.

Day 65 of Summer

Cleaning day. Not bad, but not extremely exciting. Yeah...

But here is the wheel of my gorgeous new pink bike! I can't wait to ride it, but I've been having pedal issues so we're ordering a new one.

Day 64 of Summer

Yesterday was awesome. We went to a place called Biscuits Cafe for breakfast, which was really good. Then we drove to Mt. St. Helen's, and walked around a bit. We didn't get home until about 10. Fun fun!

Day 63 of Summer

Today was alright. Wasn't it the greatest mood. Went to the mall with Sofia for a little while this afternoon, so that was fun.

Day 62 of Summer

Yesterday was pretty good. Went to the park in the morning with Annika and Truman, hula hooped, mary-go-round-ed, and other such things. Then in the evening I went to a different park and had a picnic with my Mom and siblings. Sushi was had, so life was good.

Day 61 of Summer

Friday was my 16th Birthday. I had so much fun shopping on Hawthorne with people I love and yummy food and awesome clothes and shops and everything. Then I came home, had delicious dinner and cake, and opened presents. It was a fabulous day :)

Day 60 of Summer

Time to get caught up. Ehhhhhh. I don't really remember what I did on Thursday, other than I DID take a picture!! I made this little card with Green Day lyrics on it out of boredom, and then thought "Oh hey, picture!" and took this :)

Day 59 of Summer

Umm, hey guys. Sorry about this, but I completely spaced on taking my picture yesterday. I thought about it, and I kept reminding myself to do it, and then probably around 3 am last night I woke up and thought "Ahhh I didn't take a picture!!"

Just to have SOMETHING to upload, here is a picture that Ewan actually took of himself, with Annika's camera. He did a pretty good job!

Day 58 of Summer

On Tuesday I cleaned my room, including under my bed which I haven't done in a very, very long time. My Mom helped with a lot of it ;) So even though I'm behind in the blog, I have been productive.

Day 57 of Summer

Earlier we went to the park and let Ewan play in the small water park, and Annika and I played with my new, awesome, HUGE hula hoop (Thank you Amanda!!).

Day 56 of Summer

Sofia slept over after my party as a random spur of the moment thing, so the next morning we made pancakes and then she went home, and I spent the day being lazy and enjoying my presents :)

Day 55 of Summer

Yesterday was my 16th Birthday party (my birthday is on the 20th), and it was absolutely amazing. I am so lucky to have so many amazing friends!! Thank you to everyone who was there, I had a blast.

Day 54 of Summer

Shopping and getting ready for the party today. Found this little lady bug hiding on my Mom's Orchid plant.

Day 53 of Summer

Yesterday was good. Went to my Grandma's in the afternoon while my Mom and Ewan were at a doctors appointment, then went to shopping and got a dress to wear to my 16th birthday party on Saturday!! I am so excited :D I wanted to take a better picture, but got lazy, so he's a weird one of me trying to contort my whole body into one shot.

Day 52 of Summer

Wednesday was photography club at a Botanical Garden in Portland. It was fun and purty :)

Day 51 of Summer

I am behind :/

Tuesday was good, went to the park and hung out with friends. Tire swings, picking locks, and being our crazy selves = awesome.
Then Sofia slept over and we made brownies (Well, she did all the work), watched part of West Side Story, made paper fortune tellers, danced, and generally had fun.

Day 50 of Summer

Are we seriously on say 50?? Wow.

Today was (you guessed it) lazy. Talked to friends on the phone and facebook. Isn't it great to live in a time when we're so connected with our friends, no matter if we're sitting in our pajamas at home or whatever??

Here's a picture of my conversation with Ashley, which if you can't tell reads :

Ash: Whats up?

Me: Not much lol

Me: Don't know what the heck to take a picture of today

Ash: Your computer. And be like "Today I computed"

Me: LOL I was actually considering doing that

She proceeded to dare me to do it, so here we are. Whoo, I don't have to actually come up with anything creative today! (Sorry guys, tomorrow will hopefully be better).

Day 49 of Summer

Yesterday was good but lazy. We went to Burgerville in the afternoon with my grandma and got Milkshakes. Yummy goodness!

day 48 of Summer

Yesterday was good! We went driving up near Mt. St. Helens and explored a few different lake/reservoir areas. Fun fun.

Day 47 of Summer

Today wasn't very eventful. The most exciting thing I could think of to take a picture of was our street...

Day 46 of Summer

Yesterday was good. Lazy morning and afternoon, then went for a drive downtown with my Mom and got Burgerville for dinner. Then came home and watched Remember Me and ate popcorn.

I love taking pictures downtown Portland! I just wish I had more opportunities to take them while walking instead of driving :/

Day 45 of Summer

Today was utterly lazy. I seem to have the hardest time recovering from vacations or sleep loss or any kind of activity what so ever -.-

Day 44 of Summer

Yesterday was a recovery day. I caught up on facebook and what my friends are up to, talked to Sofia for a while, slept. I've been re-reading Deathly Hallows, as I want to be ready for the movie in November. The 7th book is the only one that I haven't read cover to cover since it came out. I don't really know why. I guess when the others came out, I would read them over and over, trying to not only fill the gaps between books but also to pick up on clues and develop theories. After DH I didn't need to do that anymore. But it's nice to be reading it again. It reminds me that with all the reading I do, no matter how much I like a book, I have never felt as connected to a story or a set of characters as I do/did with Harry Potter. I love it.

*nerd rant over*

Day 43 of Summer

Had a nice morning on Monday, and then drove and drove and drove, and was so exhausted that night. Good times.

Day 42 of Summer

Sunday was great! Our friends came up to visit us on the way back from a separate vacation of theirs. It worked out perfectly. We swam a lot, and then Sofia taught me how to canoe, which I absolutely loved! We rowed all over the lake and had a lot of fun. Then we came back and had dinner, and when it was dark we walked back down to the doc to see the stars. Absolutely amazing. I don't remember ever seeing the sky like this before, and it was awesome. It was so dark and we could see SO many stars, including some shooting ones. I wish my Camera was high-tech enough to have captured that, but alas. It was a wonderful day.

Day 41 of Summer

A lot of Saturday was spent at the lake, and some of it lounging around the Cabin. A friend of ours came up to visit us which was fun. Here's me posing in my new swimsuit...hehe.

Day 40 of Summer

Friday was another day in town. Took my Grandma Kate out to lunch for her Birthday, which was yummy and fun. Then went shopping for a new swimsuit, after having two previous swimsuit disasters. I got a really cute one at TJ Maxx. Here's the pretty garden of the place we went for lunch.

Day 39 of Summer

Thursday was spent at the lake again, very relaxing and fun. Here's a panorama of the lake, which was taken by either me or my mom. We were both playing around with it so I don't remember.

Day 38 of Summer

Wednesday was my parents Anniversary, which we spent in downtown Ashland where we walked around, got ice cream, shopped, played in the creek at the park, and then had dinner at Red Lobster. It was awesome.

Day 37 of Summer

Tuesday we had family come out to our cabin, had a nice barbecue/potluck, and then went down to the lake that evening. It was starting to rain, so we debating going back to the cabin but my dad thought it wouldn't last long, so we waited it out in the car. There was thunder and massive hail that was awesome but only lasted about 5 minutes. After wards we got out and went swimming, and there was this amazing fog/mist all over the lake. Very cool!

Day 36 of Summer

On Monday I woke up early (for me, around 6) and went down to the lake with my Dad before anyone else was up. The sky and water were so clear and still, it was awesome. Then we came back and had pancakes, and then went swimming with the rest of the family. It was great!

Day 35 of Summer

Okay, time to stop slacking. Here you go, starting with Sunday, a weeks worth of vacation pics.

Sunday was spent driving, driving, shopping, visiting family, driving, driving, and then sleeping. Here's a picture I got of the sunset while my Mom was in Shop-N-Cart. For some reason that was always one of my favorite things to see when I was little and we lived there--The sun set near Shop-N-Cart. Haha, weird, but there you go.
