So last Tuesday, I went into the garage to get my bike… and I looked down and it had a flat tire. That made me pretty sad. I had to ride my daddy’s bike to work.
On last Wednesday, it was raining. For those of you who have never heard me talk about my (mom’s) car, it has a really bad belt and whenever it’s wet the power steering goes out. So of course, the power steering went out and we were unable to do much with the thing. We got home alive, so that was good. But it was raining and the car was out of commission so I couldn’t go to youth group and that made me sad because I hadn’t been able to go for the past month for various reasons. sigh.
On Thursday nothing important happened that I can remember, so I’ll skip that day. Oh wait, I remember. I got like, eight audio books in the mail. But beside that nothing interesting happened.
Friday was my mom’s 35th birthday (I’m kidding. But she loves it when we tell her she’s so young). I gave her two cookbooks. (Chocolate a love story, and How to roast a lamb. She already knew she was getting them, but she acted excited and loved them anyway.)
Saturday was my birthday, and I went to rehearsal in the morning (does 11:00-1:pm count as morning? It sure felt like morning.) and then went home and made my birthday cake. I used chocolate cake mix from a box, but added a packet of chocolate pudding into it and mixed it with the mixer for a long time, which I recommend everyone try because it makes it fantastically fluffy and dense at the same time. I made the frosting out of whipped cream cheese and powdered sugar and black cocoa. fantastic. best birthday cake I’ve ever made.
Sunday we went to church, but my pastor was out of town (he said that his friend was stupid enough to ask him to be the pastor to marry him and his fiancé. haha. Pastor Will has such a low view of himself.) so we had no greenhouse class (Sunday school) and a guest preacher. We all went out to lunch to celebrate the birthdays.
Today was my daddy’s birthday. (are we noticing a reoccurring theme in my week? My mom’s b-day is Nov 13, mine is the 14, dad’s is the 16. It is so cool!) and anyone who wished him a happy birthday at work got 50% off canvas and a cupcake. There were so many left over cupcakes that I ate three this evening and nobody noticed. And I wasn’t the only one who had more than one…
Also, I walked my bike down to the bike store and it was closed. I sat there cooling off and the guy just happened to be there so he fixed it for me :D I was very happy. So I rode the bike home. I changed and went for a nice bike ride (since what I was wearing was too warm for a decent ride) and grabbed my helmet. So Appollo, that’s why you saw me twice wearing different clothes going the same direction :D
So tomorrow I go on a college trip to Campbell University, which is why I posted THE SECRET OF JOY blog tour a day early, because I’ll be out of town in Bouis Creek (spelling?). As I mentioned earlier, I’m interested in Criminology and Criminal Justice (On that note, Crime Thriller books are my favorites!). Of course, I don’t know if that’s something that will pass, or something I’m truly interested in. We’ll see. College is the best time to find out, right?
Here is a funny video to make you laugh:
until next time,
