Random Hullo! [update and video]

Argh.  I missed another A + A Friday post!  I could go on and on making excuses, like how we were out of town all day Friday, then went to Dollywood all day Saturday, and that we've been weed-eating fence rows every day this week, but you know.  Excuses, excuses.

So, I thought I'd share a video today and a book review, posted separately.  Also, I've been thinking of doing a post on writing tips and such, but obviously that hasn't happened.  For some reason, you have to do it, not just think about doing it. . .

First, a song.


Happy Sunday, my friends!

  1. Dollywood!!! Did you get to ride Firechaser?

  2. Heheh... We actually didn't ride many rides this year. So, no, I didn't get to try Firechaser. We went to a couple shows and walked through many different shops. We did ride River Rampage! One of my favorites. :]

  3. "For some reason, you have to do it, not just think about doing it. . ."
    Oh, so THAT'S how it works! I knew I was forgetting something. lol ;P
    Hope you all had fun at Dollywood!

  4. Haha! Oh, my dear Risa :D

    Yes, our time at Dollywood was great!

    So glad you and sisters made it safely home! Welcome back to the States! <3

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
