Category Archives: The Stuff I don’t Know Where to put

happy birthday.

Today is Found and Cherished’s 1st birthday. In honor of that, I’ve done something slightly crazy. Like, oh I don’t know, switching over to Blogger. (I told you it was crazy–well, at least unexpected.) If you’d like to check it out, you can, and in the process find out allll about my family’s spring tradition. So, go on over to the new Found and Cherished and say hi.
Please? : )
(And the posts from this past year will stay here, just to let you know.)

Well, This is Nice (sort of).

I’m sick. -_-
But that’s okay, because it’s not too bad. Just the flu, according to my super-duper awesome doctor Dad. I’m in denial over this, although as the day goes on, it’s getting harder and harder to refute.
Today is going to be filled with reading, possibly writing, going on Pinterest, maybe watching some Avatar episodes, and possibly getting some sleep. We’ll see how this day goes.
But this morning I got to have a Bible study with a whole bunch of students from my online school. Even though I has a half-hour late and didn’t know a single person, it was pretty cool. We went over a section of Psalm 119. It was great.
And now, I’m off!

Have a wonderful day,

Happy Thanksgiving!

So, I suppose I should tell you guys what I’m thankful for this year, huh?
Nah… I’ll just go with this:

Happy Thanksgiving. I pray that every person out there (yes, even you) has a wonderful, beautiful day. I pray that travelers stay safe, none of the turkeys are under cooked, and everyone has a great time seeing family and friends. I pray that those hosting dinner in their homes will not feel stressed and will enjoy themselves, too. Last but not least, I pray that everyone will stop, remember that Thanksgiving is about being thankful, and put down the Black Friday adds for a little bit.

I’ll leave you with that.




When I swing, I don’t have to think. My legs automatically move back and forth by themselves, letting my brain relax. I can just be myself, be loose, because swinging doesn’t really take a lot of personality. Anyone can do it. If you love it, you do it. That’s all there is to it. If you don’t like it, fine. Go play on the slides. I like it because my mind can just wander to whatever odd place my imagination has thought up of. Maybe it’s a new story I want to write, or traveling the world. I’ve come up with some pretty awesome ideas while swinging. Maybe, sometime, you’ll read about one.


Rainy Days


rainy days are for sitting on the front porch and watching the storm.
rainy days are for curling up in the comfiest armchair you can find and reading a good book.
rainy days are for endless mugs of hot tea.
rainy days are for going on walks with the brightest umbrella possible and splashing in all the puddles.
rainy days are for catching drops on your tongue.
rainy days are for writing in solitude and peace.
rainy days are for staying inside and making art.
rainy days are for the smell of wetness that always refreshes the earth.
rainy days are for taking unique pictures.
rainy days are for listening to quiet, gentle music that softly drifts through the air.
rainy days are for getting together with friends.
rainy days are for singing along to your favorite hymns and songs.
rainy days are for anything.
