A sigh

Term is winding down and I am looking forward to a break at home. I miss my dogs something terrible. Too bad we can not bring a dog to Hogwarts, it would make being homesick easier.

Next term will be much better since I will know a few more people and will not be so in awe of the school.

Off I go to enjoy one of most enjoyable afternoons since this term has started. The Sun is out and it is a balmy 42 degrees. VOOOT--spring has sprung.

Blah, Blah, spring??

Detention was spend getting stuff ready for next term. Grubber worms, mandrake roots and frogs are on my list of things to remove from the face of the EARTH. I will keep monkshood because it is a pretty flower and I grow it in my own garden.
Professor Humperdink and Black gave me a list of directions and left me on my own. It is a good thing because I would have sat there and fumed at them. All in all, I did learn how to mix and measure and after a while it was not too much of a detention but fun. Not that I will let them know.

I am still in a funk and it HAS to be the weather. I want sun and warm breezes and grass to lay on and bees buzzing my ears and.....

I am done with winter. I have been extra crabby this week and even was rude to a couple of professors. Which has landed me in detention for Saturday, I am not at all happy about that.

Needless to say, I am tired of snow, tired of cold and below zero weather. I need some warmth and outside time. Fresh air would be wonderful that does not freeze my noise hair and to feel a hint of spring upon my cheeks is in serious need.

So, at 10:00 I am off to detention to do something seriously gross and disgusting.

Fleur Delacour-Weasley

Fleur is a witch who attended Beauxbatons Academy of Magic around 1988.
During the 1994 to 1995 school year, she put her name forward to compete in the Triwizard Tournament, and was chosen by the Goblet of Fire as the Beauxbatons Champion. While she did not win the Triwizard Tournament, Fleur showed strong character by giving her points to Harry after he rescued her sister, Gabrielle.

Fleur Delacour and her sister,Gabrielle are one-quarter Veela. Fleur's wand contains a single hair from her grandmother, a Veela. Fleur's mother Apolline Delacour,is a half Veela, due her mother's marriage to a wizard. When Veela are angry, however, they transform into something more like Harpies-- their faces turn into cruel-beaked bird heads and long scaly wings burst from their shoulders, and they can launch balls of fire from their hand.

Beauxbatons Academy of Magic is a school of wizardry in France. The Academy is a glittering castle, probably newer and brighter than the Hogwarts castle. Beauxbatons is Unplottable, so no muggles or even wizards from rival schools can find it on a map, and then it is disguised so that no one can really see it unless they know to look for it. Rumor has it that it is a Palace similar to Versailles.

Fleur was introduced to Bill Weasley during the first task of the Triwizard Tournement when she drew the Common Welsh Green and the second turn.
They were married on August 1st, 1997, although the wedding was disrupted by Death Eaters following the fall of the Ministry of Magic. Fleur and Bill set up their own home at Shell Cottage, where they are raising three children, Victoire, Dominique and Louis Weasley.

My name-Thanks Fleur
