And that, Katherine and I did! Katherine and I have been best friends since forever. The age of 2, to be exact. Inseparable! (And oh, do I love her!) Today, Katherine, Christine, and I ventured to Bruegger’s with free-bagel-coupons in hand. We enjoyed our lunch, and Tucker also stopped by to quickly eat (then rush off to work.) Then, we went to the park with Katherine’s dog, Libby. Libby is a real dog, not like my own. She fetches and swims and doesn’t weigh 16 pounds. In fact, my dog, Buddy, had a seizure this morning! He’s epileptic and has them every so often– still kind of alarming, though. Anyways. After that, Christine had to work so she headed home. Katherine and I struggled with what to do.
THEN, we took a look at the list! We used to have tea parties all the time when we were little, so clearly it was necessary. We started by finding the tea set and making Toll House chocolate chip cookies.
Cookie dough is usually better than actual cookies.
After the cookies were done, we had to dress up just like we used to! We found a box of old Halloween costumes in her basement closet– and we enjoyed it!
So yes, we looked ridiculous. BUT, we had fun and that’s what matters! Neither of us like actual tea, so our teapot was filled with water and we used the mini “sugar” bowl as the Crystal Light bowl to make lemonade (in painfully small proportions). We spilled a lot, but we always had our pinkies in the air! The important part is to remain proper. We used napkin holders and a fake candle, and it was all excellent. I love days like this with Katherine. <3
That's all, folks.
Love always, Amelia
Yes, I did it! Amelia — the girl who does not read books –has, in fact, read a book! I’m actually almost done with my second for the summer, ALREADY! Wow. It was Sophie’s idea for the book I read, as it is one of her favorites. I read “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins… and it was FANTASTIC. It was that perfect mixture of action, sci-fi, adventure, and even a small amount of romance to make an excellent story. It’s about a dystopian society and these terrible traditions they have that force 2 kids from each “district” (essentially cities) to fight to the death. The winner is the person who survives. I strongly recommend it! I am now about halfway through the second book in the trilogy called “Catching Fire.” It’s still super good! Which usually doesn’t happen in sequels, but I’m still enjoying it, so Miss Collins did something right!
Also, I hope everyone notice my new skills of word wrap on images. Please enjoy.
Anyways, Tucker and I also happened to bring my dog, Buddy, to the dog park a few days ago. It was rather enjoyable. My dog is a Jack Russel Terrier, which are known to be kind of… nutty. And apparently has to capitalized according to spell check. Anyways, he doesn’t like other dogs. So we avoided them as much as possible, and it went pretty well. I went again with my family on father’s day, and he wasn’t so great. Buddy is rather… vocal. He kind of “talks”? I guess that’s the right word. Anyways, most dogs don’t care, but their owners usually think he’s like biting them or something, but he never does! He just plays. And even if he does bite, he can’t break skin. Pathetic dog.
I like dogs.
The first one is Tucker and ze puppy running. Kind of a funny sight. The rest are kind of obvious. Umm, yeah.
Love always, Amelia
PS: Sorry for the kind of lacking and short post, there really isn’t much to say… I went to a park and read a book. Oooooh.
