Just News...

My aunt went garage sale-hunting a little while ago and bought some Christmas cookies boxes. The people she bought them from said they bought them to make cookies and store them there, but they never did. My aunt bought them, and when it's Christmas, we'll be baking until time to go to bed probably. I love sugar cookies. They're so good. I absolutely have to have one every Christmas.
I've always dreamed of being a reporter. And I've always wondered what it would feel like to read my own writing in the newspaper. I'm like Kit Kittredge. To go to the site where I found Kit Kittredge, Click HERE. Once you're there at the site, click on Historical characters at the bottom of
the page. Then, once you're in it, click on any one of the games. Then you'll see at the bottom of the page, a button leading to Kit games. These games are fun for 8 yrs. through 12.

Lots of Things

Old Fashioned home cooking is what makes my mouth water. The smell of those grilled cheese sandwiches cooking on the burners, the lovely smell of the burgers grilling on the patio and the wonderful, outgoing, beautiful, terrific smell of the cinnamon rolls baking in the oven. Sorry, I got carried away on the adoring desert thing.
I've not been anywhere recently except that I got my ears pierced today. This is what my earrings look like. The back of them and the posts are gold. I've been wanting to get my ears pierced for twenty seven years. Not really but for almost all of my ten-year old life. It didn't hurt at all after the first two seconds.

I also went to a birthday party today. I just sort of nibbled on my cake when we got there because I'm not very hungry at the time of day when the party started.

My Aunt's

My Aunt's house is so cool. She has a dog named Macy. She's a Cocker Spaniel and she sometimes gets into mischief. She's a very nice dog. My Cousin bought her and then after she had grown, gave her to my aunt. She is about six years old. In dog years she is 42. One time, Macy had briers all in her little ears. I helped my aunt carefully cut out the long pieces and pull out the thorns.

This is part of some of my aunt's many acres of land. She grows hundreds of flowers, fruits and vegetables every year. This year her peach tree grew lots of peaches and we made peach pie. Elephant ears which look like elephant ears, sprout up when she plants them wildly here. I love to garden with her. Everything she throws out to plants for fertilizer, sprouts up from the ground with her flowers. We have wild muscadines and persimmons growing here. Me and my aunt like to cook things. It's something we share strongly. I cook with her almost every time I visit. She makes muscadine jelly. I don't know if I like it or not anymore because it's been so long since I tasted it.
Me and my aunt cook little pizzas with crusts made out of canned biscuits, tomatoes, bagels and sometimes English muffins. We add all kinds of things from her garden we've washed on them.
Cherry tomatoes, banana peppers and sometimes wild or green onions. I'll add a recipe here for you to try.

Homemade Pizzas
What you'll need: crust, (anything from a slice of tomato to canned biscuits)
tomatoes, peppers, pepperoni or any other toppings you like, a grown-up and a good working toaster oven or regular oven and a can or jar of pizza sauce.

Step 1
Roll up your sleeves and wash your hands. Then get your crust and roll it flat. (Only do this if the crust isn't tomatoes) Then you take the pizza sauce with a spoon and dip it out onto the crust.
Then you add lots (if you like) of cheese.

Step 2
Get all your toppings ready. Add all the toppings you like onto your crust and then ask a grown-up to put it in the oven for you. In the oven cook it about 5 minutes to 10 (or how much time it takes to make the crust crispy). Then ask the grown-up to take it out of the oven for you. (be careful, they're really hot) Then enjoy your pizzas! Be sure to pray before you eat! Try having this recipe for dinner one night!

The Not-So Great Bike-Ride

One day I was riding my bike at the park with my aunt. I rode around the walking trail and right as I was riding to a place where there was a dip in the walking trail and then a sharp curve, I forgot to slow down and turn, and there I was heading for a four-inch deep creek. With two big rocks - and I was headed straight for them! Even though I panicked from having a dream that I fell into a creek and drowned while riding my bike, I managed to turn in between the rocks, but the worst part wasn't over. I landed face-first in the four-inch creek with gravels in the bottom. My bike flew into the air and landed on my back. I got up and I had a nose bleed. My aunt was the only adult there and she came running to help me up. She helped my get my bike and we went to my aunt's big, blue van. She took me to her house to clean me up. I had on thick coveralls so I was only skint up.
Even after all that was over I sat in the room in the bed where I sleep when I stay all night, then I trembled, whimpered, cried a little and had chill bumps run up and down my spine. I knew that would never happen again, but I still remember how scary it seemed to have rode right into a creek.
