I'm Home! (and lot's more)

11 August 2010

As the title of this post indicates, I'm home! Oh, it feels so nice to be back. Vacation was lovely of course, but home? Aah.

So, how did you like the guest posts? They were beautiful, weren't they? I think I shall have to work VERY hard to live up to the standards they set. If you loved Lynnette's, Brianna's, Melody's, Hannah's, Rachel's, Emily's, Awel's, and Barbie's posts as much as I did, head on over to their blogs (linked below each guest post, respectively) and leave them a comment to let them know! I'm sure they would love if you follow them as well, while you're at it. :)

Oh, so much to say! To start, here are some pictures, as I promised. No people in them, as is my family's rule, but still nice.
































(isn't this car awesome?)

(another drawing of mine -- what do you think? I know I'm not the best artist, but I still draw for fun :)


(here is the flower I was attempting to draw -- sorry, I forgot to watermark this one!)


(isn't that ocean just gorgeous?)










If any of you are wondering where we were, all I can say is that it is in California. No more than that. Isn't the ocean just beautiful? It was cold, too! We were shivering by the time we finally got out of the water, but it was SO worth it! And also, how could I put the question "You're on the beach, wearing normal clothes (NOT a bathing suit). Do you consider jumping into the cold ocean anyway?" in my blog party tag and not do it myself? I was wearing a bathing suit, actually, but I kept my clothes on over my bathing suit when I was in the water, for it was very chilly!

When my hands weren't glued to the camera, I was writing more on Peril on the Sea. My word count when I left was around 8,000 words. Now it's 20,000 -- wow! I more then doubled it over my vacation. So, I DEFINITELY reached my goal of getting a large chunk of Peril on the Sea finished.

Last, but not least: My blog party/giveaway is being officially extended until the 14th of August, due to my being out-of-town on the 1st of August. You only have 3 DAYS left to enter for the fabulous prizes, so enter ASAP! Thank you! :)
