What I've Been Reading

I went to the library. (Yea!) So, here is what I've been reading.
Hayden actually checked this one out but I'm reading it, and so far it's really good.
I was thinking that this was probably going to be one of those books you start to read but don't finish because it's either too boring or too hard to understand, but from what I read so far, this guy's really good at breaking it all down and making this programming stuff understandable.

I've really been wanting to play an instrument and we have a piano, so I decided to try to teach myself. This book seems to be working; as I can play (kinda badly, but getting better) stuff like Yankee Doodle and Mary Had a Little Lamb.
At first, the guy who wrote this book was getting on my nerves a little bit by his corny jokes when all I wanted to do was learn to play piano, but as the book progressed, his jokes have either gotten better or I'm getting used to them. And no, I'm not a dummy. :)

I thought candlemaking would be fun so I got this book. I'm just now getting to the part of how to make candles, because the first half was mostly history, which suprisingly was pretty interesting. The only bad thing so far was a chapter called "Candlemaking as a Sacred Art" which told about new age and false religious practice type stuff that I skipped over.

So, that's what I've been reading. I haven't been able to find any good fiction books though so, if any one has some suggestions on good classic literature, Christian fiction, or appropriate fantasy, I'd be happy to hear your input.

Quote of the Day and Happy Easter

I know I just did a quote, but yesterday my brother said something really funny. At least I thought so. But first you have to know that my brother Harrison can do the smolder (from Tangled). Well, Yesterday we had some friends over, and they knew Harry could do it so they asked if they could see it. Sitting neerby was my six year old brother Joey. So, Joey runs up to Harrison takes him to our friends and says:

"Harrison, these ladies want to see your smolder."
(We all start laughing)
"Show us the smolder!"

If only you could have heard in what voice Joey said it because it makes it so much funnier. :)

Happy Easter Everybody!

He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where he lay.
- Matthew 28:6

Quote of the Day

Today's lovely quote comes from my sister, and might need some explaining. My sister and I share a room. Last night we were singing together when she stopped, and said something I thought was hilarious because she said it with all seriousness.

"I have to stop singing now, because when I sing, I scrunch up my eyebrows, and my eyebrows are getting sore."

What I've Been Reading

This week I've re-read some really great books.

I also went to the library to read some new ones.

I actually hadn't read Peter Pan before so I thought I should. I also wanted to read Robin Hood, but I couldn't find it at the library. :( I didn't get to stay at the library very long though, so I didn't find any other books besides Peter Pan. Hopefully I can go back to the library soon, but I'm thinkin' that it would be smart to make a list of books to get before I go so I spend less time looking and more time checking out so can get more books. :)

Yea! I finished rewriting  my bubble gum speech! I'm sooooooooooo happy! This Monday is my last day of speech class, so I'm excited that I'm going to be done, but I'm still going to miss it.

But, anyway what's your favorite typ of gum and what's the biggest bubble you've ever blown?

I actually got it.

A few days ago, we got the movie. We got Tangled. It was even better then I remembered. I am content.

This movie is just so beautiful! From the forests,
to the spectacular lantern scenes
I couldn't help thinking that I will not know what to do with myself when I get to heaven, since that will be better than anything imaginable. I think I would die from the beauty -but if I'm in heaven I'd already be dead... hmmm
