Oh Look. Abby's Written A Post After Two Weeks...

Well, hello! It's been about two weeks since I've posted, so I've decided to favor y'all with my presence.

*immense applause and cheering*

*holds up hands* Now, now. That's enough. So I had a good idea. It seems that there was a certain blog which had a giveaway a couple months ago (over now). In the comments, a very smart person suggested we write a story in the comments. This was the best idea ever. :) Joint stories are real fun. So I thought we could start one on this post. *edit: This means that one person writes the next paragraph, then another person writes the next one, and so on and so forth. You build on the previous person's paragraph. Make sense?*
Whatcha think? Well, if you want to start it, here is the starting sentence:

 “Are you sure you want to do this?” Lily hesitantly shouted at me. “Perfectly sure,” I shouted back. I was standing on the hill’s edge, paper feathers glued onto my arms, ready to jump. “Nothing could possibly go wrong.”

Just imagine the possibilities of that sentence. :) Anyway, what has everyone been doing lately? Today we made some applesauce. Yum! We have at least two giant pots of it just waiting to be canned. We used a mixture of different apples, including Roma apples, which turned the sauce a strange pink color. :O I'm pretty sure it's safe to eat though.

School has been interesting. We've started a new curriculum, and are currently reading a book called The Flames of Rome. It's about Rome in the time of Paul, Aquila, Priscilla, and others. It's a good book, although there is a lot of killing and sensuality. Math is doing as well as can be expected too. :P We're having a piano recital in December. I'm working on four songs: O Christmas Tree, The Little Drummer Boy, Noel, and Jingle Bell Rock (a duet). How is your school year going?

This concludes this exceedingly interesting and engrossing post (just kidding). I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Grace be with you,

Abby :D

So how does this joint story thing work? :) Like one person writes the next paragraph, and then another person writes the next one, and ect.? Or do we just use that beginning and finish it on own own?

Okay, here's the next part of the story I'm adding on:

Then, when the next big gust of wind came, Lily and I jumped off the hill as high as we could, into the air. I felt the paper feathers flap, and before I knew it, we were flying! The breeze carried us over a field of daisies, and as we swept past, Lily and I both grabbed a handful of flowers. But then, all of a sudden, the wind picked up, and we started moving fasting. Not knowing how to stop, or land, we were helplessly tossed around in the sky like a pair of socks in the dryer.

Suddenly all I could hear was a loud beeping noise I was looking all around wondering what it was when suddenly,
I threw my hand down on the alarm clock. It was 8:00 am already.
It was the third night in a row that I had that dream, and I was starting to wonder what it meant.
