Happy Birthday Alex Dumas

Today is the birthday of Alexander Dumas. His most famous story being La Dame aux Camélias a beautiful story (according to Wikipedia here is the link) I have the book at home but I have yet to read it it on “the nightstand of to read” instead of “the nightstand of read again” so go read it for me because I’m not going to have time today.

Au revoir

This weekend I have been at a camp doing outdoorsy things those three pics show a couple of things. Today we rock- climbed up a fifty foot tower so we could zip-line. Then we did rope ladders, I’ll just say I have been disillusioned from wanting that treehouse rope-ladder combo; don’t get me wrong I still want a treehouse but with an elevator or an escalator. The camp we are staying at is built on a hill and EVERYTHING IS UPHILL. Every bloody thing is up a bloody hill. I am so tired of hills and stairs I feel like I’ll never walk again.

Back In the Swing

Please excuse any typos I am typing on my phone.

Okay, so I haven’t posted in a while my plans. Here are my reasons:

1. My computer broke. I dropped it while preparing for a blog post (see I had good intentions). I was making Homemade Fettacine (did I spell that correctly???) which I will tell you about later.

2. I am currently writing a novel. A NOVEL!!!! It is taking up most of my time but I am getting back in the swing so I can fly. I’m thinking about posting chapters of my novel on my blog, comment and tell me what you think about the idea.

3. Last but not least on my list of excuse… Uhhhh… I mean… Reasons I’ve not been blogging is GUYS, IM STARTING TO COLLEGE this fall. I have been planing and writing that pretty much been my summer.

Now in the spirit of Flying today is John Fields birthday. In case you didn’t know he is a Romantic Composer here is a link to some of my favourite pieces he wrote Click Here.
