The tickle feather **

Spring is here! Ah, a time of warm winds, daffodils, blossoms, and... snowflakes? It sure has been an interesting season. Winter was so warm, I could practically wear short sleeves, and now that spring is here, I have to bundle up before going outside. Strange weather, for sure.... but maybe no mosquitoes in summer? Maybe they'll all be killed by the cold. *evil laugh* That would be worth braving the cold for.

Here are some of my highlights of March so far.

~Highlights of March~ a list

1. I'm entering an altered book contest at our local library, which means I get to cut up books and turn them into art. Mine's turning out well so far. I like how it looks. Maybe I'll post some pictures when I'm done.

2. Speaking of the library, I got my own library card! Hooray! I know there are lots of people that have library cards, but I'm really excited to check books out with it.
(again speaking of the library, I saw my old tennis teacher there when I was getting my card. I thought that was interesting.)

3. I'm working on a research paper for writing class. We picked a career to research and now we're writing about it. I chose a book editor, because I love finding other people's mistakes. :) just kidding.

4.  Our puppy Honey has a serious biting problem. Ugh. You can't even pet her without feeling little sharp teeth on your hand. Can anyone relate? Have any tips?


Well, that's just about it. Of course Easter is coming up (in March this year!) so I might post then. See ya later!

Grace be with you,

Abby :D 


ps. oh, i nearly forgot! my birthday is in a week! i'll be turning seventeen. :)

** the title of this post is from my little brothers who are playing with a feather. :)

Poetry

I felt like sharin' something personal with y'all today. I ain't one of them fancy bloggers who can type up their thoughts real pretty-like, so I decided to share some of my poems! Yep, these are genuwine certified Abby material right here. Enjoy!


This is one I wrote when-- of course-- I wanted some snow. Writing about it's the next best thing, right?

Snow


Tiny ice sculptures blow down from the sky
So dainty and fragile, they melt with a sigh
Delicate, lacy, exquisite and light
Each one is different, but all are pure white.

 Please don't judge this one! It was a science assignment for school. :)

The Pituitary Gland

God’s creation is amazing
For so many things we should be praising
There are wonders in this world galore
The butterfly’s wing and the lion’s roar
But even the sunset can’t begin
To wow me if I look within
Every bacterium and cell
Has its special job and place to dwell
There’s a tiny thing called the pituitary gland
Under the brain is where it stands
It sends our hormones to and fro
Tells them what to do and where to go
It keeps our bodies free of strife
And helps us have a better life
Next time you bow and fold your hand
Thank God above for this awesome gland

Did I already share this one? I'm not sure, but anyway...
Panther
Black and sleek
Bold not meek
Dusky fur
Growl not purr
Leopard black
Hidden spots
Color dim
Courage lots

This one is about one of my favorite types of cats! I know lots of people think hairless cats are creepy, but I like 'em. :)

Sphinx

Naked but regal, they sit straight and tall.
For the fur lover, their skin will appall.
Wrinkled and darling, their gaze says to you,
“Laugh, but please love me, I will love you, too.”

Grace be with you,

Abby :D
