What Have You Been Doing This Summer?

I got this idea from Olive Tree @ (Of)Horse Feathers.
I decided to show y'all a little bit of what I'm doing this summer. :)
Reading: (of course)
Listening to music:
Playing the Wii: (can you find my elbow?)
Swimming (yeah, I know. I look funny. Don't laugh :P). This is Caldirwen and me jumping into our pool:
Adoring my boots: (and editing pictures on my photo editing software)
But most importantly, reading my Bible and growing closer to the Lord:
So, what are some of the things you've been doing this Summer?
What's your current favorite music to listen to?
What books are you reading right now?
What is your favorite Bible verse?
Do you like to journal?
Do you have a pool?
Do you have a Wii?
Can you sew?
{btw, you don't have to answer all those questions, but you can if you want}
Also, I'm very excited because I'll be having my 16th birthday this Summer!
Also, Esara's 13th birthday is TOMORROW!! 8D {more about that tomorrow}
{all the pictures above were taken by me, except for the one of Caldirwen and I jumping in the pool. The credit for that one goes to Narthea}

Also, great news!! Dad got his catheter out last night and he is now able to use the restroom on his own! Praise God!! Dad is very happy. :)
{Also, Buttercup, I have not forgotten about that Caption Contest. It's coming tonight!}

Here are some answers to you questions:

My favorite music right now is some of the Glee music.

I L.O.V.E to journal. I do it every night before I got to sleep.

We don't have a pool but we do have a pond that we swim in alot.

We also don't have a Wii.

I do know how to sew. i need to work on a summer dress i'll enter in the fair.

Great photos, Eldarwen. My favorite music right now is Selah --they always have beautiful songs. Check them out on YouTube! This week I'm finishing up Project Pearl a book about how a million Bibles were smuggled into China. Great read! My favorite Scripture verse would probably be Proverbs 8:11. I journal now and then--should do that more often! Yes, we live on a Christian resort and have access to the pool. :-) No, I don't have a Wii. And yes, I can sew (a little bit). Thanks for the questions. That was fun! Also, I'm happy to hear about your Dad... Still praying for him. Blessings!

Cute pictures, Eldarwen!

And I'm so glad to hear about your dad! I'll keep praying that he continues to heal and will be able to come home to you all soon. :)

In Christ,
Lizzy Rose

Sierra said...

I have been doing farm work mostly, and of course I have been reading, I can't live without books! We havn't really done much else yet.


P.S. What photo program do you use to edit your photos? I am looking for a good one.

Favorite music? Don't laugh but right now every time I get on I-tunes I play "And Winter Came". I know I'm nuts, listening to Christmas music in July. :)

Books? I'm not currently reading anything now, but I'm going to be getting gobs of Charles Dickens books from the library soon!! :) I like him. :)

Bible verse? Psalm 42:11 (look it up)

Journal? Me? um...nope. I have a terrible time keeping that consistent.

Pool...hahah, no but my uncle does. :)

Wii? Nope, I've played on one, but don't have one. :)

Sew? I can but I don't like to...crazy I know...but I prefer graphic design. :)

God bless! Love,
~awel P.

Ok, the pictures of the books...I LOVE "A Walk to Remember" I can pretty much quote the movie from beginnning to the end. "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" Also, a good book. "Love Finds You"-is that by Melody Carlson?? I havn't heard of it, but am a Carlson fanatic.
I journal pretty much every night, I've filled up two journals, and am now working on my third.
Music-I have the Ocean Eyes c.d. and I can't get enough of Switchfoot.
Amazingly enough, I love sewing too.
Wii-love it. Favorite game is Wii Fit Plus.
Pool? ABSOLUTELY! One of my favorite things to do.
And reading the Bible of course. Right now in Colossians 1 mostly. :)
I win for a very long comment.

Sounds like you've got a great rest-of-the-summer ahead of you!

What's your current favorite music to listen to? Owl City!!! (to bad the rest of my family cringes when I put it on)
What books are you reading right now? Well I just finished some good ones from the library and need to be heading back there to pick up some more!
What is your favorite Bible verse? I love so many it's hard to choose but my favorites are the Psalms.
Do you like to journal? I do but *sheepish smile* I usually forget.
Do you have a pool? *sigh* no...
Do you have a Wii? Nope.
Can you sew? Yes, I made my very own quilt the year! It is so cute.

And I'm so happy about your dad! I hope that this is a step in the right direction and that before long he will be cured. Stay strong!

OK. Before I start my comment I am going to answere your questions.

What's your current favorite music to listen to?
I like christian music. Not soft. But NOT heavy meadle of course. I like a couple soft songs like Cinderealla by Chris Champlain.

What books are you reading right now? I am reading "Stepping Heavenwards", "Nicoli" (From the Left behind series.) "Elsie's Widow Hood." And my Bible of course!

What is your favorite Bible verse?
That is a hard question! I can't choose. I like every verse!

Do you like to journal? Sorry, no. My mom has tried to make me journal...just not my thing. I always stop. And if I do I am bored and say dumb stuff like "I am bored, sorry I haven't wrote in a long time....I am bored" But I don't think that realy counts as journaling. :D

Do you have a pool? No. But I wish I did! We have a membership at the YMCA. I don't think that counts though. We have it because I am on the swim team.

Do you have a Wii? Again, No. And again But I wish I did!

Can you sew? Now here is another thing I can say yes to! And quit a good one!

Now for THE comment. :D Man! You are a good photographer! I am glad you had a good time swimming...or jumping! I am going to read that book! The book "I kissed dating behind" But I don't see how I will ever go on a date if I plan to say no allready. I have read "A walk to remember" Good book. But it isn't my favorite. I am glad your father can be more indapendent. I am sure he is much happier. :)

Eldarwen said...

Eden, oh yes! I've heard of Selah! I like their music as well! I think I have some on my mp3. :) Have you ever heard of Hillsong? They're good, too! I love their song Mighty To Save! We sing that song at Church a lot. :) Thanks for the long comment! I love long comments. :) And thanks for praying for my dad!

Sierra, the photo editor I use is called Nero PhotoSnap Viewer. I'm not really sure where we got it from, or how we got it, I just got on my dad's laptop one day, saw it, and started using it. LOL =D So, I'm still learning the ropes to it. :) I know!! I love books, too!

Thanks for the awesome and long comments everyone (Sorry, FFPRTC, Zoe beat you... lol 8D )!! I LOVE long comments! You guys, er, girls are awesome! :)

I love to journal. I filled up 18 journals since I was 12.

Finding Faith, Purple Rain, and Talking Cows said...

I'm in complete awe of Hillsong. They're one of, if not my favorite, band. I feel like a creeper commenting on your blog twice. lol Oh well, I am who I am. Bummer, about not having the longest coment. Maybe next time?

Gwenea Zestia Binn said...

I got a job!
I worked today.

I'm reading Ella Enchanted.

I LOVE journaling! I've been writing in a diary since I was 10!
No... *sniffs* We don't.

No.. *sobs* we don't. you want an honest answer?

Truth to tell, I can hand stich (sorta) but I live in deadly fear of sewing machines

Gianna said...

cool, I think I will do that on my blog once my no-show barbie clothes week is over. By the way, if you are sewing, would you care to enter my no-show barbie clothes week?? I would love it if you did. Please comment on my blog's newest post if you decide to.

God bless,

btw, What's the chat thing on your side bar? I've been looking at it every time I visit, but still haven't figured it out!
God Bless!

Giving God the Glory!

Eldarwen said...

F.F.P.R.T.C., no, don't feel like a creeper! I do the same thing on, like, everyone's blog. LOL =D Maybe I'm weird... but I think it's cool!! 8D Yeah, maybe next time. ;)

Abigail, my chat thing is just a box where people can immediately send a message to me and other bloggers. There's a bar at the bottom of it where you can enter your text. After you type it in there, you just hit the enter button on your keyboard. You can also include your name *hint*hint*. :)

Love y'all!

Alexandra said...

I forgot to say--I'm so glad that your dad is happy! :D

Alexandra said...

I'm actually taking sewing classes now, and we're currently making a pillow case :P. (In the classes, we use the *exact* same machine you have! :)

And I do have a Wii! So much fun...

Have a lovely day!

Finding Faith, Purple Rain, and Talking Cows said...

Clearly, I need a shorter name. Or something like that. I feel bad whenever someone writes out the whole thing because it's so long. But, anyways, I'm glad I'm not completely a creeper, or at least I'm not the only one :)
Ok, I'll stop commenting now...haha.

Eldarwen said...

FFPRTC, well, I think I get brownie points for coming up with a "quicker" way of typing your name! :) lol If you want.... but I'm having fun! LOL 8D

Finding Faith, Purple Rain, and Talking Cows said...

Way to go! :) I guess I'll keep it. Your name reminds me of The girl from Ella Enchanted...I love that movie!

Lindsay said...

What a fun post, Eldarwen!! I love the pictures! Great job and thanks for sharing about your summer so far. Oh, and happy birthday to Esara!!! =)

Lindsay, thanks Lindsay! Oh, I'll tell her you said "Happy Birthday!" :)

Love & hugs,

Finding Faith, Purple Rain, and Talking Cows said...

No way!! It's one of my favorites! I'm such a chick flick girl, it's crazy. My friends all think I'm silly because I watch so many of them, but they're the ones that most of the time, if not always, have happy endings. :)

Eldarwen said...

FFPR&TC, awesome! I know! I completely agree!

Finding Faith, Purple Rain, and Talking Cows said...

Wow, you add an & sign to my name :) I feel so special. tehehe. 8D I think you and I would get along very well if we actully knew each other. But hey, how much closer can blogger buds get? *hugs*
