reading corner || guinea pigs







 This is my reading area! I spend hours a day here. This is probably my favorite spot in my room, other than my bed, where I do all my writing. ;) I ordered the first and second volumes in the Christy Miller series on Amazon with my birthday money, along with other books. I am almost finished with the first book, because I started two days ago. Those books are so amazing! I was reading a different book (pictured below), but when I got my new books in the mail, I just couldn't wait to start them! :)









We are pet-sitting two adorable guinea pigs! The golden-and-white one is just soo photogenic! ;) I love to feed them their fruits, veggies, pellets, and hay in the evening.

We started school last Monday. It went great! I do lots of cool experiments in Science, and I love learning about the Indians in History and Jesus and his disciples in Bible. History is probably my favorite, though.

I watched a video tutorial on making paper beads, and found random materials around the house to make them. I have lots of old magazines laying around the house, so that is very helpful! They are just soo time consuming.. I worked on them for 4 hours one day and only finished about 8 beads! I'd like to make a bracelet out of them. ;)

It is getting to that boring point in summer when everyone is going back to school, the weather is very hot and uncomfortable, and all the summer-type things have already been done. I am not very fond of summer, and I would much rather prefer it to be fall or winter. I can't wait for September!

I have been writing.. a lot. I have come up with a story line for the novella that has yet to be named, and I really enjoy working on it. Hopefully I'll stick with this story till the end this time! :)

I have been thinking a lot lately about having a giveaway...(if I had a giveaway, would you enter?? Please tell me in the comments!) when to do it, what to give away, and what it should be for. I know I almost have 25 followers so I was thinking I could do a 25 followers giveaway. I might give away a book, bracelet, or homemade item. ;)

  8. The photos of your guinea pigs are so cute! I wish my reading corner, like yours, is more concerts and solid; I just have a literal corner and just sit there to read since everywhere in my house is loud! I wish I could enter in your giveaway, but after Addy's giveaway my parents say I wouldn't be allowed todo another one for awhile. Let me know when it's up, because I can endorse it at the end of my post(s) and let people know!

    xoxo Morning

    1. Thanks Morning! Do you have a lot of siblings? I only have 1 (a little brother), so when he goes outside it is the perfect time to read because the house is nice and quiet. Aw, that stinks! Thanks! I'll be sure to let you know!
