7 Quick Takes Friday

Last week as I was scrolling through Pinterest and I came across this:

You have to go back and think about every episode with the Ponds and River Song this way. Is she just talking to them as companions of the Doctor or is she talking to them as her parents?

That ^^^^^^^ is the comment that was with t\the picture when I repinned it.
School started again this week. This semester I am taking math, english and marketing. When I got my marketing textbook in the mail there was a can of Red Bull (which I don't drink) and I thought that it was kind of interesting and weird at the same time. My dad pointed out that it was a marketing scheme to make you interested in getting Red Bull. If you are ever interested in renting text books instead of buying them you can check out, because they have decent prices for renting books and they tell you how to ship the book(s) back once the semester is over.
The first episode of Doctor Who Season 8 aired lasted week Saturday evening and I had the privilege to watch it with some friends as it aired on BBC America. I liked it. Some of the lines were pretty funny and that is all I am going to say in case there are people who haven't seen the episode yet.
About a week or so ago Amanda had picked up a book at the library called "What Alice Forgot." I read it last week and while it might not be on my must read again list, it was interesting. If I was to
Just recently my mom had downloaded a book on her Kindle about healthy eating and we are giving it a try. From the bits and pieces that my mom has read allowed it sounds very interesting. One of the recipes that we tried was cheeseburger pie and it was pretty good and it tasted a lot like a cheeseburger, but without the bun. We also tried "green fries" which was just green beans and broccoli with a bunch of different seasonings on them and then backed in the oven. Those were good as well.
On Sunday while I was doing my usual scroll through Pinterest I found a yummy sounding recipe for Pumpkin Pound cake. Even though I am doing the healthy eating thing with the rest of my family I want to try it.

Couldn't think of a creative name......

I guess you could call this a throwback Thursday post because I finished the blanket back at the beginning of May and just got around to taking pictures of the finished product now. Pinterest is to blame for giving me the idea to make this blanket, though I don't remember where the original pin that I got the idea from went too. I had started making it last year using up the rest of a pink flannel sheet that was in our material bucket, but then I ran out of that so it sat around for a while by our sewing machine until I found a large grey flannel sheet. Here are a couple pictures of the blanket that I took.

This is a just because photo

While I could have made it a little nicer I like how it turned out :)

The Adventure of Sherpork Holmes

This is a story that I wrote back when I was eleven. Why it had to be a story about pigs I don't know, but here it is, enjoy :)

The adventure begins in Pork City on July 18th, 1818. The Hams children, Lily, Peter, George and Henry, were playing in their yard. Then, who should come along but the Big Bad Goose. He started to chase them around the yard. They all ran oinking into the house. Mr. Ham called Sherpork Holmes to save the day. Meanwhile the Big Bad Goose was trying to get into the house. He got in and kidnapped Peter and Lily, who were twins, then ran off. Then who should enter the scene but Sherpork Holmes and his faithful friend Doc Bacon. Mr. Ham told them what had happened in the last few minutes or so. Then off they went in search of the Big Bad Goose. The Big Bad Goose soon got to his lair, and there he dropped Lily and Peter. Sherpork Holmes and Doc Bacon were nearing the lair, which was about 30 miles from Pork City, in Chop Mountain. Chop Mountain is very high and very steep. Lily and Peter were tired and hungry from all the crying they had done. The Big Bad Goose had put them in a large wire cage by now. The only things that were in there were two small beds, food and water bowls, and a small bench. Serpork Holmes and Doc Bacon were climbing up the side of Chop Mountain. Then it started to rain. Since they were by the Bog Bad Goose's cave, they ran in there. Since the Big Bad Goose was out, they were safe. While they were in there, they saw the cage with Lily and Peter in it. They found the keys and unlocked the door and ran out of the cave and down the mountainside. They got back to Pork City safe and sound. When the Big Bad Goose got back, he saw that his prisoners were gone and became sorry for what he had done.

The End.

Long Lost Art That I Drew

The other day my mom was sorting through a bunch of boxes and found some of the art work and stories/book reports that Amanda, Yavi and I have done. So I decided to share the art work that I drew when I was younger. The two stories that I wrote when I was younger will make an appearance on here as well :) The butterfly picture is the only drawing that I know what age I was when I drew it and the other ones are some time around then.

I am not sure why it is a sad butterfly

Abstract Art

I think this is suppose to be me with Amanda, Yavi Aaliyah and our parents

It looks like these are pumpkins and that they are suppose to be me and my sisters.

I think this one was drawn after one of my siblings was born.

Not sure who this is suppose to be a drawing of.
