So I know most of you won’t get this (unless you do), but I had to make this (because I did).
The said “this” is a Pros and Cons list that I made about one of my absolute favorite book series (The Gallagher Girls Series) by Ally Carter.
The books are about girl spies in training (but you don’t know that. It’s a secret).
For those who do get this (and I think that would mainly be anyone who sees this via Pinterest, because I am planning on pinning this to one of my boards), enjoy. And, Ally, if you ever see this, we all love you.♥ (And, on a more personal note, you were one of the first people who inspired me to start writing. And you still do inspire me. A lot.)
To anyone who thinks the above sentences are cheesy, leave. You have absolutely no idea how much Ally Carter has influenced my writing. No. Idea.
And now for the list! I was inspired to make it by Cammie’s lists, and this one over here.
Last night, my sisters and I went outside and got some pictures of the super-bright, super-awesome blue moon. It was pretty fun. We saw a couple praying mantises and a lot of bats. The stars tried to come out (as you might be able to see in the first picture), but the moon was pretty bright.
Did you guys get to see the moon?
On Sunday night, me, my little sister Olivia, and our parents went outside to watch the meteor shower. I was super excited because I’d heard it was going to be a pretty awesome one. We went behind our pond and stood in the vineyard surrounding our house. At that time, I’d never seen a meteor shower before. I was eager to see how it would turn out.
I didn’t bring my camera (thus, the picture above is not mine). I knew it would be kind of pointless to try and get a picture of a meteor that’s only there for one moment. Also, I wanted to enjoy the meteor shower. Not that I don’t enjoy photography, because I do. I really do. But I didn’t want to worry about getting the “perfect picture,” so I didn’t bring it at all.
Unfortunately, it was cloudy. But not completely. We still saw two! Even though it was cold and cloudy, I still enjoyed myself. It was the perfect way to end my Sunday.
Last night, we celebrated the Fourth of July for the second time. It was nice to see fireworks two different times. A lot of people came—more than usual, I think—because it wasn’t on the fourth.
A note: this will be the last post for awhile. I’m going away to work in the kitchen at a camp and won’t be back until Friday night. I haven’t abandoned the blog, don’t worry.
