A wet soggy week

Which is fine for me since I have to pack everything from the last four terms this week. I will not be doing Summer Camp and I am not sure which house I am going to be in next term. Maybe the Hat will put me back in RavenClaw or maybe I will transfer abroad and learn in the States.

This term has flown by so fast that I am not sure it even happened. Except that I have pictures and stuff.

Did I mention that I was spoiled TWICE this term by HRM Frysia? She hates charts and I love them so I wrote a pattern out for her and she sent me CHOCOLATE-DARK CHOCOLATE. and some yummmmmmmy lace in a spring green.

is this not THE most prettiest green?
i do need a pattern for it so perhaps
you could suggest one for me?

here is Isis-she is practicing singing WELCOME HOME-to me.

wow so like the week has flown by.
violent and i went down to Hogsmeade last weekend cause she needed to do some shopping for someone in Slytherin House.

I asked my mother if i can go to summer camp this year and she said no. I guess we are doing so sort of family vacation and seeing the sites of the US. Not sure if I can stand to be in an automobile with my smelly brother for an extended period of time.

I have made a few more bags after making Cass's and I have figured out the secret to making the handle better than the instructions. Mom is sending me some of her quilting fabric that she thinks will work for handbags. Good thing she has a stash of fabric.


just cause he is cute

spring has sprung here in the northern wilds.
the wind is whipping
the air is snapping
the sky is bright blue and clear
the grass is trying to be green
the flowers are pushing their way through the soil
and the trees are budding.

it is a perfect day to play hooky.
