my ideal day in 180 words

Inspired by my sister, Perrin. She wrote her own ideal day which she posted on her blog, here.
And so, my ideal day starts...
I would be on my bed, reading, eating chocolate, at least 2 loyal dogs, snuggled up next to me. At breakfast time, I would go through to the kitchen and have a BIG salad, with Spaghetti Bolognaise (my favourite!) Then I would go to the computer, sit down, blog, go on KidPub and check my emails. I would run to the post box and there will be 10 letters from my pen pals for me. I would sit down, read them all, answer them all, decorate them all and put stickers on them all. And then I would jump on the trampoline with one of my siblings. Then I would get a pedicure and go to the hairdresser... I then would get a massage. I’d go back home and have pizza. (oh, I love pizza) I would model for some of my mom’s pictures, and then I would go and play with Pip my bird. At our farm, we’ll go to the river and have a picnic and enjoy ourselves in the sun, bliss.  

Ah, VERY different to my sister’s ideal day in 180 words, lol!
What did you think of it? Would your ideal day be very different? If you have a blog, you gotta try this! Use Word (if you have it) which will help you count the words. :)
Thanks for the visit.

Psalm 148

Psalm 148, verses 1-14

Praise to the Lord from Creation

Praise the LORD from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights!
Praise Him, all his angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!
Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light!
Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, and you waters above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of the Lord, for He commanded and they were created.
He also established them for ever and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away.
Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures in all the depths; fire and hail, snow and clouds; 
stormy wind, fulfilling His word; mountains and all hills; fruitful trees and all cedars; beasts and all cattle;
creeping things and flying fowl; kings of the earth and all peoples; princes and all judges of the earth;
both young men and maidens; both old men and children.

Let them praise the name of the LORD, for His name alone is exalted; His glory is above the earth and heaven.
And He has exalted the horn of His people, the praise of all His saints - of the people of Israel, a people near
to Him. 

Praise the LORD!

This is such a beautiful, poetic Psalm...most of them are. It makes me want to sing. :)
Praise Him. <3

Perrin's blog (and something about Afrikaans)

Hello there. My sister, Perrin, has a new blog now! She really enjoyed making it. Click here to see it. :)
Today, our Afrikaans tutor came. I learnt this sentence: Vandag het ek uitgesien daarvan dat my afrikaanse tutor juffrou moet kom. Ek het baie geleer van afrikaans.
English: I couldn't wait till my Afrikaans teacher came! I was really looking forward to her coming. I learned a lot of Afrikaans.
Eh...still learning. I think it means that...Well, that's what life is about! Learning and having fun, as well as loving God.
Tell me if you saw any mistakes in my Afrikaans sentence, please?
I am going to try and learn a lot of Afrikaans and perhaps make it my second language! I hope so, that would be great for me.
My sister and I have realized that Afrikaans is actually easier to learn then English. At first I said, "No way, English is easier than Afrikaans," but now, I definitely think that Afrikaans makes more sense than English... You may disagree, but if you practice both, then you shall find out the truth! Anyways, I'm going to work hard on Afrikaans.
Our tutor taught us Afrikaans, then gave us caramel chocolate bears...lovely. ;) She is actually a really nice tutor who makes sure we understand her and her language.
Perrin is way ahead of me! As in, she knows lots of words that I don't. Oh well.
Bye for now.

writing a new story (and some random things)

Hi. Well, I decided a while ago, that I was going to write a new story, my favorite thing to do! I'm always wanting to write a new story. :D So, I have, the first chapter, but I haven't posted it on KidPub yet, I have to go over it one more time... Fix the spelling mistakes check on the grammar and stuff like that...
Oh, yeah, and the another thing. I have been on the computer quite a bit, today. NO surprise. But, hey, don't say I'm a computer hogger, I did take a break on Wednesday! ;)
I figured I needed to do a blog post before Saturday, cuz I ain't doing one then. I think, just maybe, just MAYBE, I'm getting a little lazy at posting blog entries...
Anyway, I am half typing my blog post, half watching a scary show of people getting killed by Pumas! (also know as: Cougar and Mountain Cat) Interesting and SUPER scary...

today at art

Today at art, we spray painted some leaves!  Actually, we were using the leaves to make leaf-shaped patterns on our paintings, so the leaves were just going to get thrown away afterwards, but they were so pretty in the sunlight that my mom suggested that we photograph them before they got thrown away.
They turned out really beautiful, and worked nicely on our art-pictures too! We sprayed them red and gold, here they are, what do you think?

Aren't they pretty? Well, I think so!  I didn't get to finish the painting I was using the leaves for, I'll post a picture of it here, too, in a couple of weeks when it's done.  We only go to art on Thursdays, so it might take a while!
Once again, my amazing mom did this for me, she took the picture, which wasn't so easy! (I know, because I helped her... lol.)

a skirt for Mila

Hey! I'd like to tell you about the skirt that my mom made for Mila! Of course, I'll give you some pictures, too.
She wanted to make Mila a fairy outfit, so she looked it up on the internet and it came up with a blog which gave you a really easy step by step pattern for making a fairy skirt! If you want to see the blog, click here.
Anyways, Mila loves it!

Here's pic No. 1

Mila is wearing the fairy skirt there. Oh! I forgot to tell you, my mom bought a shirt from ackermans (on sale!) and sewed little butterflies onto it, to match! That's the shirt she's wearing there. :)

 Pic No. 2

In that picture you can see the different colours of the skirt better, and you can see Mila's cute face better, too!
I'm glad to say, I think my mom is awesome for being able to do that. Don't think I could ever!
Hope you enjoyed my blog, and thanks for the visit.

pip and I

This is who Pip is:

The lovely bird on my head. Pip is my darling little Speckled Pigeon that is tame! But I'll tell you more about her when I'm done with the pics. (oh, by the way, the girl with Pip on her head, yes, it's me!)

I'm sure she/he's modeling for the camera! ;)

Pip and I are both doing some funny things there, aren't we? :D

"Flowers, Pip?" :D I think that's the prettiest one. ;)

That's all the pics.

My family and I were having supper when this cute feathered person flew into the window. Surprisingly, when we saved her from the dogs, she was not afraid of us! Thank goodness the dogs did not get her and no harm was done. She was tame and loved our company. We have kept her ever since! We feed her seeds and water, and we let her out of her huge cage (seriously, for a cage it's big) and she flies around the neighborhood until she comes back to us. She'll fly onto our head, and then we'll put her back into her cage. Today, me and my mom were on the veranda and Pip flew onto my mom's head.
My mom said, "Oh, hello Pip!"
Soon, my mom put her on my head and we took all those photos. While that was happening, our Cat, Peru, (not the one that had kittens) was lying down by my feet, and didn't try to attack Pip.
I believe that Pip is a wonderful gift from God that I must not take for granted, and I love her so! All of us love her, and adore her. I'm so glad that God was generous and gave us a new beautiful pet! :)

The blackest one is Cayenne (named after the capital city of French Guiana), and the Ginger one is Cairo (after the capital of Egypt), and the one right at the bottom is Canberra (named after the capital of Australia). :) It has long since been a tradition in our family to name our cats after places, such as countries or cities.
They are so incredibly cute! And I can't wait till they grow up and we can play with them! Cayenne and Canberra are girls and Cairo is a boy. Somerset Rose is such a excellent momma, which is surprising, since the Persian breed has a bad reputation for parenting.
I look forward to much fun with our new little fuzz balls! The last we had kittens, I was a baby and so I wasn't able to have much fun with them... Will make up for that now.
Hopefully, nothing bad will happen to these gorgeous little kittens and hopefully they will grow up strong and healthy, that would be great...
Thanks for the visit!

my first day of blogging

Hi everyone! This is my very first day of blogging, and I'm so excited! If you know much about blogging, or some useful things, I would really appreciate it if you would put your advice in your comments! I'll be on here quite often, I think, so be sure to check my blog out every now and again to read my blog posts.
I'm a girl who really loves Jesus, writing and taking photos. I'm ten. My mom sells stuff online, so I thought I would do a link-through...
Click here to go to my mom's one of my mom's pictures, she also does T-shirts. If you click on that link, you will go to a picture that my mom took of my dog and her puppy, I'm sure it will make you SMILE!
You can also have a look at some of her other works from that website.

P.S. I used to have a poem posted with this post about my family at the supper table, but I took it off because I wrote it when I was really young and it was quite an immature poem.
