Random Post #3

Hello, readers! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I bring you another random post, aka The Place Where Clara Puts Her Extremely Random Thoughts. XD

Here we goooooooooooo….

Random Topic #1: New doll things

My sister bought me the OG “Sharp As a Fox” outfit a little while back. ๐Ÿ˜€

Isn’t it cute on Ivy?

I love the color of the skirt. โค You can buy this outfitย HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also bought this desk from Walmart:

It was $10. I love it! ๐Ÿ˜€

I think Ava has claimed it as her writing desk. ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Random Topic #2: Fireworks

We watched fireworks with some friends on Independence Day, which was SO fun!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I took some pictures. I think I should have used a tripod, because only a few photos turned out well….

^ That one’s probably my favorite. ๐Ÿ™‚ ^

Random Topic #3: Light Painting

Have you ever heard of light painting? It’s a kind of photography where you use a long exposure to capture a moving light. You can see an amazing exampleย HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚

I decided to try it with my siblings, so they drew in the air with a flashlight while I held the camera. The photos turned out pretty cool! ๐Ÿ˜€

Light painting is really fun! I’ll probably do it again sometime. ๐Ÿ˜€

Random Topic #4: Book Suggestions?

Books3

HELP! I NEED BOOKS! XD Suggestions would be much appreciated- I mostly read fantasy and historical fiction. ๐Ÿ™‚ Any ideas?

Random Topic #5: At The End of the Road

at-the-end-of-the-road

You may or may not know that I’ve been writing a story on the collab blogย Girls Writing For God’s Glory. It’s called At The End of the Road. It’s historical fiction, which is pretty exciting since I’ve never written that before. ๐Ÿ™‚ย I’d love if you checked it out!

Also, today I posted a story called Desperate on there. You can read HERE. ๐Ÿ˜€

Random Topic #6:ย ATCs

I got some fine-tip Sharpies and I LOVE them! They’re so fun to draw with!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I made some ATCs with them:

This rose one is probably my favorite. ๐Ÿ™‚ What ATCs have you made lately?

Random Topic #7: Maude

Maude (my dog) has a very….ย interesting habit…. she eats pears. XD Here’s proof:

She also eats leaves, mushrooms, and acorns. I call her my vegetarian dog. XD

See? She picks them right off the tree! XD

Random Topic #8: Photography

I just wanted to share a few random photos I’ve taken recently. ๐Ÿ™‚

King Grover.

Maude and me. ๐Ÿ™‚

We have two rose bushes in our yard- one has little red roses, and the other blooms those huge pink ones. They’re so fun to photograph! ๐Ÿ˜€

ย Random Topic #9: Hay Cutters

As you may know, we live on a farm, but we don’t farm, if that makes any sense. XD We do have a hayfield, though, and we hire a local farmer to cut it for us. ๐Ÿ™‚ He came yesterday to cut and rake the hay, and he’ll be back soon to bale it. I’ll try to get some pictures! ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, that wraps up today’s randomness! ๐Ÿ˜› Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day. โค

  2. Nice post! Have you read the Anne of Green Gables series yet? That’s good historical fiction (although it wasn’t historical at the time it was published; contemporary then. ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

    1. I haven’t read The School of Good and Evil, but I have read Kat, Incorrigible. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Those fireworks pictures are really cool! I love fireworks. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and I also really like the moving light photography.
    As for book suggestions? Well, I love the Christian Heritage Series by Nancy Rue. It’s actually 5 series that make up the Christian Heritage Series, so there are quite a few books! They are all really good, so you should see if they’re at your library!
    Also, have you ever read The Tale of Despereaux? That’s such a good book. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love fine-tip Sharpies too! I actually like all kinds of Sharpies, and coloring and drawing utensils in general. They’re so fun! I got a bunch of gel pens for my birthday this year, and I really want to use them(I tried some of them out once, but I want to do more stuff with them).
    Oh, and I love that last rose picture! It’s so pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Ooh book suggestions! I recommend Salt to the Sea by Ruta Septys! It’s a great read, and I cried while reading it xD It’s such an interesting story, about the sinking of a ship during WW2 that killed more passengers on board than the Titanic, yet it’s rarely if ever mentioned. I think you’ll like it!

    And for book suggestions: Okay, I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the Ranger’s Apprentice series if you haven’t read them! ๐Ÿ˜› I would call them Fantasy probably… hmm… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ By John Flanagan! ๐Ÿ˜› It’s VERY VERY COOL!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I think it’s very very cool! ๐Ÿ˜› It’s my fav book series EVER IN THE WORLD!!! :O D: ๐Ÿ˜€ Hehe!! ๐Ÿ™‚ And then have you read ‘Cloak of the light’? And the rest of the trilogy? probably not. It’s by chuck black! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ They’re also pretty good! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. You’re welcome, K.A.! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Ooh, okay! That sounds like a great series- I’ll check it out! ๐Ÿ˜€ I haven’t read that one either- I’ll look at both of those. Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. You looking for historical fiction? One name: G.A Henty – he wrote 99 historical novels in his lifetime, which was from 1832 to 1902….my personal favorite is A Final Reckoning, which is about life as a police officer in Australia back when it was still a prison colony, or True to the Old Flag, which is about the American Revolution from the British perspective. You can sometimes find them at libraries, but your best bet is to buy them online here: http://www.robinsonbooks.com/. WARNING: The reading is very advanced, but if you read slowly, you should be able to make it out. Also, because of the time, the politics are much different.
