6. Bake cookies without a recipe & 30. Go to the library & 35. Surprise someone with flowers

Standard

Hello again!

This one will actually be good, I promise. I actually have something to work with now, finally! Today has been a very busy day. Except not really. I didn’t really do anything this weekend, so I really had to make up for it today… and I think I did? I hope so. Anyways, I woke up this morning and read Catching Fire for like 3 hours… then finally got up. Tucker came over and we… went to the library and played computer games. I’m going to Kansas this weekend to visit my cousin and her daughter, so I needed something to do in the horribly long drive… and so I got books! (GASP. More reading.) That was fun, I guess? Then we played games. Civilization 4 and Railroad Tycoon 3, in fact. Yeah, on separate laptops at the same time. We’re super cool, okay? He left and then at about 7, Grace, Vanessa, and Maddi showed up. Thank god! Came to save the day.

First, we started with baking cookies without a recipe– a struggle, kind of. We knew the basics, flour, sugar, butter, eggs, etc. and then we just kind of threw in some random things. 2 eggs and an egg white, chocolate chips, a lot of vanilla extract, and some baking soda or powder… I don’t know which haha. And I mean, they turned out pretty good? I’d say they were decent. Not great– but not terrible.

Without a recipe.

Decent.

After the cookies were done, we were rather bored. We thought about a movie or something, but I didn’t really have anything we wanted to see– so we set out to Cub for an adventure. We bought two bouquets of flowers, a balloon, and set on our way! Our first stop– McDonald’s. We surprised a girl waiting to order with a carnation, and it was kind of awkward, but fun. Walgreens, next. We totally made the cashiers day! Of course, it was just past 10, so nothing was really open, so we gave 2 more at Pizza Hut and a nail salon. We had 4 left, so we went over to Kelsey’s house! She wasn’t home, but her mom sure enjoyed it! Then we went to Christine’s house. Her family seemed to be hosting some kind of a party… which was kind of awkward, but I went in and found her and gave her a few. It was cute! Also, she was wearing a romper, which, although I could never pull off, looked adorable. Anyways, our last stop was Sam’s house. We gave him a full bouquet of flowers and a balloon. It was awkward, but fun. It was kind of a spontaneous and random thing to do, but I hope we made someone feel good! It was fun, and that’s really what matters.

Surprise!

Adventure time, yo.

Love always, Amelia

2. Read a book & 83. Take the dog to the dog park

Good books.

Hello!

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.

My doggyyy.

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.
