Oh yay! and VERY busy day tomorrow

First off, I probably won't be able to post tomorrow because we will be soooo busy with baseball games, Beach 2 Beacon, several other random things...etc. But I will probably be able to squeeze in a post on Sunday before I ship out ((again)) For camp. I'm going back to Pilgrim Lodge. :) And yippie skippie!!!!!! My parents said that I can not only bring my cornet as I usually do, I can also bring the trombone! I am getting very very into palying it. Also I have just decided that either on this post or the next, I would like your ideas on possibly a new blog header name and screen-name. So, comment if you have any suggustions. (I have decided that it is gettion boring being the old same 'ole same 'ole)

La Dee Da....

Random post here..... I like my new look and yes, I added back my old header for now, even though it's too small. My blog will just have to stay this way until I win a contest on OTGD. I'm just bored, it's raining, not much to say, la dee da........

7.30.2009

New look!

Well, as you can see I got a 3 column template!!!! I'm not so crazy about the background and I'll find a new one soon. OTGD do you have any 3 column templates? Well I hope you like the new look! I have no header right now because the old ones were too small, but I'll have to ask Olive Tree about that! So, yeah hope you like the new look!

random pics of Ms. Schmearer's plant






I am just putting these on here 'cause it is the easiest thing to do to get pics into my e-mail. haha.


Yawn.....I'm so bored

I am sooooo bored. Like, I just want this week to end so I can be at camp again. This week smy brother's at camp and so we can't do much 'cause it takes 40 minutes to get out there. 80 round trip, twice a day. And even reading outside on the porch has kinda lost it's thrill. Seriously. On Tuesday I went to the library and got 8 good solid 250-450 page books. (yeah sometimes I decide to go easy on myself in the summer) Well I'm done with all of them. I hadn't even READ any of them before. Yikes, guess I'll need to go back there again today.

7.28.2009

Lazy Day....


Not much to do today....just your lazy summer day....haha. Went to the library this morning and got some books. I've just been reading on the porch swing and wishing for and ice cold slushie from Red's down the street. Yum.......tangerine or something like that. Yeah. Or there could be snow and I could be wishing to ski........oh yeah. Me skiing at the top of Saddleback like I am in the picture. The view is to die for up there.....

(Don't Forget to look below for awards you may have gotten!)

7.27.2009

I recently have gotten several awards and would like to give them to some other people too.....as you can see the awards are above this and you can take this ones that apply to you after you read this...

Shopping

Well I did some errands with my mom this morning while my brother was at camp. Wasn't that bad. Got some supplies for my Tri For A Cure poster and white shirts to tye-dye a blue pair of shorts and a cute blue skirt. And after walking out into the parking lot, good gracious! IL FAIT CHAUD!!!!!! So hot and humid out. I wish we had a pool or could go to the beach but XanFan's got a baseball game tonight so THAT'S out of the question.

7.26.2009

Summer Storm

Yes, the title says it all. Thunder is rolling overhead and and the rain is starting to fall rather heavily, and yet, not all the sky is covered with clouds at the moment and we're expecting a rainbow. I love thunderstorms. I mean, after you know the facts they're not scary at all! Like thunder is just air expanding and crashing together again-and in your average storm most lightning isn't cloud-to-ground. But we're talking average storm in Maine. If you were to live in, say, Oklahoma (tornado capital of the US) Erm- Just saw lightning and have to shut this thing off now-bye.

7.25.2009

Back!

Hey everybody! I'm back from band camp and, boy was it AWESOME! Our concert totally rocked and Elrania and I had sooooooooo much fun. (We roomed together) We had some really tough pieces and we were able to pull it off. I also made the top jazz band. Anyway it was just a great week. As a matter of fact my old piano teacher and old KinderMusic teacher were there as counselors. HAHA. It was great, but I'm glad to be back here on my blog again!

(oh and everybody, i have decided that i have to many blogs and am just keeping 2, this and ancedote)

7.18.2009

Band Camp

Today I am in Lamoine for a family gathering and then tomorrow Elrania and I are going off to Band Camp at USM! Should be fun and check back to my blog next week!

tags from *Silverstar*

What's your nickname?
Well, I have a lot. Spottedstar, Cornet Crazie, Sal-Sal

What's your favorite color?
Green!

What's your favorite food?
I can't resist homemade apple pie......

What's your favorite book?
Oh! Hard.....love Warriors, Harry Potter, Septimus Heap, almost everything I've ever read.....

What's your favorite movie?
Hmmmm, Wall-E, Titanic or Harry Potter 6

What's your favorite TV show?
Erm.....Ace of Cakes! SO COOL!

What's your favorite book/movie character?
Don't ask me to choose!

What's your favorite animal?
Hmmmm. I wonder. Cat! (duh)

What's your breed of dog?
Well, I'm not a dog person but Yorkshier terriers are really cute

What's your favorite saying?
"Life without music would Bb" or when I surprise my family be screaming "Great StarClan, what was THAT!"

What's the worst dream you've ever had?
It was TERRIBLE! Mrs. Barry told me that cornets were no longer allowed to be played in South Portland, and that they all had to be incinarated! And that the only instrument that I could play now was bari sax.....

What's the best dream you've ever had?
idk?

Who is the weirdest person you've ever met?
Well, I've known a lot. Olive Tree and Super Gato are both up there along with Mrs. Barry and my brother, plus a lot of random other people............

If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
Clan cat.

Have you ever been on a train?
Yes, but not for longer than an hour

Have you ever been on a ship?
Oh yes.

Have you ever been on a plane?
I love planes! Flying is fun!

Have you ever been in a car?
Oh, I wonder.........

What's your favorite blog besides your own?
Let's see. For a warriors one I'd certainty say StormClan. *Silverstar* does a great job with it. Other than that, probably HorseFeathers or Of Elven Elrania and Her Horse....

Where would you like to be right now?
Anywhere but here...LOL home is so boring

Where are you right now?
Well this one should be obvious...


Sorry if that was boring. Now for the Warriors quiz!




Who is your favorite Warriors cat?
Hard choice but I must say that I admire Yellowfang greatly....always liked Yellowfang.......

Who is your least favorite Warriors cat?
I hate Tigerstar and Scourge of course but they're very interesting characters.....I really do think that Firestar is a jerk (in the NP and PO3) But the cat I hate the most.....it's a hard choice.

What is your favorite Clan?
Ya know what? It depends on the book. In Into The Wild it's Thunder, in Dawn it's Wind, in Eclipse it's Shadow, in Dark River it's River, etc.

What's your least favorite Clan?
Again, it depends on the book

If you were a cat, which Clan would you be in, and what position would you hold?
I would be in ThunderClan and I think that I would probably be most suited to deputy. Being a leader is cool but I really admire the deputies

What's your favorite Warriors book?
I could rattle off a long list here of all my favorites, but I won't. The list would contain every book. LOL

What is your warrior name?
Spottedpath. I liked it from the moment I read it off the screen. I think it's perfect or me. :)

What do you think is the coolest Warriors title?

A Dangerous Path or Long Shadows

the nervous/excitedness is beginning to set in....

Oh my.......only 3 hours until I leave for the game. How willl I make the time pass quickly. I must say thank goodness for pre-game warm-ups, because they really get you all calm and focused. But district championship.....wow. If and when we win we either get medals or trophys and a big banner that says something like '2009 District 6 Champions' and we get to run around the field with it. And championship game AND cross-town rivalry!? There are going to be SOOO many people there. A bunch of family members are coming, friends, boyfriend, other regular season players, random people...........a ton.

Lots of Stuff

First of---Astyria and I have created a blog where we will post a bunch of cool short stories that we think you might enjoy. Click here

Second-Today is my brother, XanFan's, Birthday. Yay! You've made it to double digits! And so in a few minutes we'll be going out for breakfast.

Third~ TODAY IS THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay! SPN vs. SPA. The conflicting sides of town. LOL. Anyway, we finally get to play it tonight after it being postponed so many times due to rain.

I think that's it. I'm excited, today promises to be a great day!

7.10.2009

Beach and sleepover


Just got back from the beach with my friend Annie. Soooo much fun. The waves were huge! We swam, walked to the shipwreack, looked for crabs, skim-boarded and then swam again. Now we're home and she is sleeping over. Fun! It's been an interesting day.....very fun. The pic is from the web, but it's what it looked like on the beach tonight! (we didn't have the camera with us)

7.09.2009

Astyria and I are contributers to all of these blogs.






Yay! Please join. On MoonClan I am leader and on the others I am deputy! Astyria is leader of Feather and Dawn, and medicine cat of the others

Rain

*In high fake enthusiastic voice* Don't you just LOVE the rain? I mean, they're just SOOO many things that you can do! They are just the most fun and I never get tired of the rain!

*normal* Sheesh. If there really is a person like that, getting the same weather I've been getting, they NEED to see a doctor. They may be a danger to society. Seriously. We haven't had more than 2 days straight without rain or drab overcast clouds. Not fun. Ya know, I'm starting to agree with one of the comics in the paper yesterday. The Family Circus, maybe you read it. Anyway the boy, Jeffy, looks out the window at the rain and says "They should give us an extra day of vacation for every day that rains."

Note to Astyria: Tried to add some of the things you said would make my blog make engaging. How'd I do?

~Cornet Crazie~

TODAY!

Soooooooooooooooo excited for today. And nervous. And hopeful. And hyper. And longing. See, this is the thing. If SPN (my team short for South Portland National) wins our game tonight, we have won districts and will join 5 other teams in the state level. It's just SO exciting to be on this kind of team. 3 of my followers are also on this team and they are Annie, Katie, and Super Gato. And an almost cooler thing is this. We play at 7:30 UNDER THE LIGHTS. Totally cool. Well I'm going to stop obbsessing over the game 'cause you're probably getting a little bored with it.......

Today I am also having my first private cornet lesson!!!!
