Happy Independence Day, the day we celebrate our freedom with fireworks, hotdogs, watermelon, swimming, and spending time with the fam.
No matter if your in Alaska or Rhode Island, you most likely love Forth of July. I know I do, and I live in the depths of Lousiana, where Aligators and Crawfish roam around and- yeah okay, I’ll stop.
Anyway, I’ll just tell you what I did for Forth of July!
(Also, I know this is late, mostly because my Scheduling glitched!)
I woke up at 9:30, and I ate breakfast, and I talked to my Mom about plans. A little while later, I took a bath. Then I helped get stuff together for the fam, because we were going to my Mawmaw and Pawpaw’s camp, which is on a lake a couple miles from us.
Me and Mom then went to the grocery store, where we bought snacks and a Birthday cake. (We wandered the aisles for a while to find the Little Debbie’s, but then I realized they must be on the end of an Aisle. I was right.)
Then when we got home, we packed up and left!
When we got to the camp, we got all the stuff out of the truck, (I like, ran. LOL, 6 kids and a baby is not my choice of travel) and I went into the camp to say hello to everyone.
Except they were all down the pier, which is like, 120 feet long? It looks longer and feels longer than it actually feels, but trust me, its a long way down, and you can’t run.
So there I go. Traveling down the pier. One step at a time. I notice pink stuff every where, but I think nothing of it.
I finally get there, and I can say hello to everyone! It’s kind of cool, in the temperature way. I decide to go back down and help Mom carry in bags.
La de da de da, down the pier we go again.
“Are you going to fish?” I hear my Pawpaw say.
“Oh I don’t know, maybe!” I say, but the answer is really no. But if I say that he’ll look at me like I went to China just to watch TV.
I reach the cabin, and I help unload. I grab my bag that I brought (With books in it) down to the pier. I get out a chair to read, and I don’t sit down. Why? There’s a spider on the chair. I do not want to sacrifice the book I was reading so I just kind of sat there. Waiting. until finally I decided just to shake the chair. The spider is missing. The spider is probably still on the chair. I bring the chair to the middle of the pier, where all the adults usually are.
I snap it with a rag and it falls off. Victory. I start to read. Everyone comes down to the pier now. About 30 minutes later, I go back down to camp. (I have a bad reputation for not being able to decide where to go)
As I am happily walking back, I see it. A snake (I typed Snack on accident lol), on the pier. In a panic, I decide to jump off of the pier and unto the muddy ground. Now I am in a snake infested area. I can’t move because there is muddy all around me, so I go back unto the pier, a couple feet away from the snake, and run back to tell everyone about it.
“Oh okay.” They all say.
Then my five- excuse me, six, year old cousin and my sister walk back down the pier, ignoring me and what I say.
They make it. With no snake in their path. I walk back down the pier too, running past where the snake was.
My Pawpaw say me and told me not to run. I said Yes Sir, even though I could’ve said,
“BUT THE SNAKEEEEEE!!!”
Anyway, I make it into the camp, tell my Mom and my Aunt, and they where a lot more sympathetic. I eat a snack.
Before I know it, it’s lunch time. I don’t bring up the snake. Because they didn’t care last time.
Pretty much nothing interesting happened after that, so lets skip to about Four O’ clock. My cousin says, “Let’s catch you a fish.”
You see, I can’t fish. Hold up, let me rephrase that, I can, I know how, but Fish do not like to bite my hook.
So I put my pole in the water and wait.
No fish. I change fishing spots. No fish. I go everywhere, no fish.
I get tired of this, so I go into the camp to rest.
The rest is boring, so I’ll spare you the details. We go home, we eat jambalaya, and I take a bath. When I get out, I get on my computer and search up the pink stuff on the trees.
Turns out, it was snail eggs, pink and poisonous snail eggs.
SO, what did you do for Forth of July? Do you like to fish? Have you ever had a close encounter with a snake? Comment below!
And, I think, it’s safe to say, my blog makeover is done! It took a lot of work, headaches, and agravating hiccups, but, it’s done!
There was only one problem, I couldn’t get the posts page to display posts. So what’s a girl to do? Link it to the reader? Sure! Why not?

I cannot tell you with who though, because that will be a secret between me and them.
Today I will be posting your assumptions about me and answering them. I think this turned out pretty great honestly! I really enjoyed reading them, and I know this will also be awesome!
Let’s read on!
*marches away but then realizes I need to continue the post*
From Libby Loo:
Your favorite color is Pink.
You’re probably going to end up having three children and some kind of small pet when you’re older.
My favorite color is rose-gold, but you are correct!
I can’t answer that last one, but yes, those are my plans! Well, maybe two golden retrivers named Barley and Fern. But if I can’t have dogs I’ll have a cat named Boo. (I just came up with that and I love it lol)
You want a horse farm when you grow up.
You are good at photography.
You are artistic.
A horse farm…… Hmmmmmmm….. Lets add that to the list! (yes, I have a list.)
Am I good at photography? I mean, I think I am but I’m not super sure….
Is it weird that I see colors when I listen to music? It’s like my mind is Fantasia when I listen to music. Bet yes, I do get artistic kicks.
you will not “Like” like this comment.
I did like your comment!
You are homeschooled.
You would love to travel somewhere.
You want to learn French.
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
You don’t like pineapple.
Girlllll you only got one wrong. Well 1 ½.
Yes, I am homeschooled. Just because I don’t go to public school doesn’t mean I don’t suffer in quarantine. Ha.
I would love to travel to an exotic destination and eat pineapple. (Yes, I like PiNeApPLe)
I would love to learn French! Merci Chalice!
I don’t really know how to answer that. I mean, life gives me lemons, I intend to make lemonade, but they sometimes go missing…
That’s all the assumptions! Remember, next week today will be when I reveal the winner of my giveaway! I am still accepting entries! I would add the link but my link box is not working!
Bye everyone! Thank you for all of your amazing assumptions!
Um okay, so, I joined another writing contest (Can I scream now?). I do make up pretty good* stories in my head, but, my grammar stinks. I think I need to review all of the grammar goodies before I start writing
*as in, okay stories. trying to be modest!
Now that I have reviewed the common grammar mistakes, I might be ready to write.
The Prompt is, endings. I have a great idea!
Did you like it? Okay never mind. Bad idea. *Takes deep breath* LETS DO THIS!
Story Rules(Copied from Ariana’s blog ): You will be given a word prompt, and judged based on your adherence to it.
There is a word limit of 1,000 words, and any story that goes above this will get points docked off. (See judging criteria.)
All stories must be appropriate, and profanity, and graphic descriptions will result in automatic elimination and loss of the round.
Your stories must be finished within a week. If they are not, you will forfeit the round to someone on the waiting list.
Oof, well, okay! I’m not sure if it’s still open, but I’ll do it anyways.
I think I’m ready to start! Here it goes!
In the cold of winter, everything is bleak. The world seems covered in thick sleek snow. Oh how I wish, that spring comes again. To be able to climb on a tree’s now frosted limbs. The fire is hot, and it warms me and Mama while we wait for Papa. Worried he might be trapped in the snow, we pray to our Father in heaven to save him from the dreadful cold. I cannot withhold this excitement, for it is now May when things are beginning, and the cold of Winter is finally ending. No more fear of sickness, that can swallow us whole. And knowing that our food won’t go old. Yes the world isn’t heaven, and winter will come again, but for now we should thank God for the Spring that he has sent thee. Winter has ended. Not forever, but for now. Unlike when the world ends, it will end forever. Hallelujah to the Lord!!!
