I can't think of anything to post. My mind is a blank. I have no inspiration! HELP!

So, to ask the fatal question once again, can you tell me what you like to read about?

Thanks,

Funny Faces with Sam and Joe...

Smile and say cheese! (Sam)

Hee hee! (Sam)

"My lips are sealed." (Joe)


Ha ha! (Joe)


I love these little guys, and personally I think they are the cutest toddlers in the world. I am a bit conceited, though. Do you agree with me?

Grace be with you,

Abby :D

Oh, and when I get to my hundredth post... hint, hint. :D

Tag!

Here is a tag from Hannah grace. Thank you!


The rules are: Please tag five people and do not tag the one who tagged you. And if you would not like to answer a certain question, simply change it to one you like and answer that.

#1-What song are you currently listening to a lot?

I'm listening to 100 Silly Songs (my little brothers' choice)


#2- What books are you currently reading?

The Chronicles of Narnia. I love these books!

#3-Do you sing a lot?

Yes, mostly around the house.



#4-Sweet or salty?

Sweet.


#5-What is your favorite hobby?

Reading.

#6-What books have you read at least 3 times?

Too many to list.

#7-
What sites do you always visit when you get on the internet?

I mostly read blogs. Sometimes I go on the online dictionary and weather.com.

#8-What was the last thing you bought?

Let's see, I bought a chain for a necklace, a charm for the chain, and some wooden beads.

#9-Which fictional character do you think you are most like?

I think I'm most like...well, actually I'm probably a mix of several characters.


#10-Favorite earliest memory?
My favorite earliest memory is when we went to a fair (I think it was a fair or maybe a carnival) with our friends. I got to pet a sheep and go on the Ferris wheel. Also we got some popcorn. That's probably not my earliest favorite memory, but my brain is still not quite awake.

#11. What do you do to change your mood?

I will usually read or maybe practice piano.


#12-What was the last meal you ate?

Breakfast-which was chocolate chip waffles. :D

I might want to- if I do it will probably be Spanish, or maybe French.


#14-Five things you can’t live without?

1. God
2. food
3. water
4. sleep
5. family
Boring things, I know.


#15- Find the closest book to you, and flip to page 54.What is the first sentence in the 2nd paragraph?

The book is Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The sentence is: "Uncover before Narnia, you dog,"
thundered the Lord Bern, and dealt him a rap with his gauntleted hand which sent his hat flying from his head.

#16-What is something you would like to say right now?

This tag is fun!


#17-What are you looking forward to?

Going to Monkey Joe's. (We're celebrating my twin brothers' birthday today.)

Ask Tappi

Here are the questions for Tappi this week:


Tappi, I'm having trouble. I can't answer this question. Maybe you could. What came first? The chicken or the egg?
~Anonymous (:


Anonymous, I think the chicken came first. After all, if there wasn't a chicken, there wouldn't be any eggs, right? Hope this helps! -Tappi

My telephone keeps ringing and when ever I answer, a person is trying to convince me to buy something. I always end up buying what they're selling!

I don't want to be rude and not answer the phone, but when the caller ID say it is THEM I really don't want to answer.

What should I do???
-Anonymous


Anonymous, Don't worry about being rude. If you don't want to talk then you shouldn't. You could try having a friend call and pretend to be them. Then practice saying 'No'. Next time the phone rings pretend it is the friend you practiced with. Hope this helps! -Tappi



What do you think? Should Tappi start her own blog?

Finally! Some photos!




Here are some pictures. I don't usually post photos, but I thought, "Why not?", so here they are.
The first one is my extremely adorable cutie pie brother John (he is so much cuter in real life), and the others are a cloud going over the sun. My personal favorite is the first one. :)

Tappi Yolka, guest blogger

My "friend" Tappi Yolka (who is not a real person) is going to be a guest blogger on my blog. She is great at giving advice and might start an advice blog of her own. So, she wants to know if you have any questions for her. Here are some (totally made up) questions that she has answered in the past.

Dear Tappi,
I just got a new dog that was already named. I don't like its name, but I'm afraid that it will make the dog confused if I re-name it. What should I do?
- Kathy


Kathy,
Don't worry, it won't make the dog confused if you change the name. Just get it used to its new name gradually and it'll be fine. Hope this helps!
Tappi Yolka




Dear Tappi,
I used to live in the suburbs and I just recently moved to the country. There used to be habitual noise where I lived, but in the country, all is silent. The constant silence is getting on my nerves! What can I do?
-Unerved

Unnerved,
Try getting a background CD and a good player. Maybe you could try playing it more softly each day, until you can stand the silence. Hope this helps!
Tappi Yolka



You can ask Tappi any kind of question(even made-up ones), but you have to comment (Tappi's not allowed to give out her e-mail address). And you can be anonymous or say if you don't want your comment published. I'll post Tappi's questions and answers every Saturday.

Ha ha ha....

Every ten years, the monks in the monastery are allowed to break their vow of silence to speak two words. Ten years go by and it's one monk's first chance. He thinks for a second before saying,"Food bad." Ten years later, he says,"Bed hard." It's the big day, a decade later. He gives the head monk a long stare and says, "I quit."
"I'm not surprised," the head monk says. "You've been complaining since you got here."
-Reader's Digest

At a supermarket, I noticed a woman with four boys and a baby. Her patience was wearing thin as the boys called out, "Mommy! Mommy!" while she tried to shop. Finally, she blurted out, "I don't want to her the word mommy for at least ten minutes!" The boys fell silent for a few seconds. Then one tugged on his mother's dress and said softly, "Excuse me, miss."
-Reader's Digest

I thought these were funny. :D
