Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
1. Have I been lax with my posting? *cough* Never mind the question – I know the answer. School has finally caught up with me, and my free time (what free time?) is spent trying to catch up on emails, do farmwork, and all that jazz… 
2. Bloggers block. I have a lovely challenge for you all – since I’m out of ideas for what to post. I know I have a vlog that I’ve promised (will be done soon!), but what would you like me to post about? It can be something random, or something serious. Just give me a topic suggestion or two. *wink*
3. Lord of the Rings. Ok, yes. I am addicted – thanks for asking. I spent a couple hours with my dad, watching the Fellowship of the Ring (extended version), and I’m once again reminded why they are some of my all-time favorite movies. Speaking of all-time favorite movies, what’s yours?
4. Design. Over at CS Designs, I’ve been pretty busy too. Check out all these designs…


I’m just loving the colors on them, especially the fall colors I used on His Sparrow. Did I mention that my designs are now free? Check it out...
5. Anyone else plagued with stinkbugs? I’m genuinely curious to see if anyone else is suffering from this enormous swarm of brown bugs. They’re everywhere! I think I have a colony that lives in the folds of my window curtains…
6. I’m on Twitter. What else can I say?  http://twitter.com/farmgirlwrites 
Happy Monday, everyone!

    I admire anyone who can design their own blogs. I am sure I could learn. I just have no time!

    Loved your nature photos!

    Happy Monday!

    What a lovely post! Nature is truly beautiful.

    I cannot wait to see your new blog design 😉 I wish I could create my own blog design, but so far I have used pre-made ones. Maybe I will be brave enough one day to try it 😉


  5. Congratulations on winning the Apron giveaway! ; )

  6. Ooh! Great pictures 🙂 You look really pretty. And I like the first one too 🙂

    I was signing the Veggie tune when I opened your blog this morning, with visions of Bob the Tomato floating in my head! Sorry about your rabbit. Hope Peter feels better soon! Love the photo shoot pictures. The first one is my favorite.

    Haha, that song has been stuck in my head for days… I suppose we're on the same wavelength there. 🙂
    Thanks, Barbie!

  10. Poor Peter! I've never had a rabbit, but I had a rat once. He got sick, too, and I had to feed him with little syringes like what you give little kids medicine with. 🙁
    And wow, you look way older than fifteen in those pictures. You look nice, though. I like the first one best.

    Thank you!

    I really like the first one, as well. Beautiful picture! I hope your rabbit will be better soon.

    wow, that looks like a lot of fun! And, the jousting part…I did understand =)

    Wow… that looks like a really fun weekend! Great pictures! 🙂

    What fun! That would be far too stressful for me but I'm glad you had a great time 🙂 I also wrote my miscellany monday post at an insane hour and it had a lot to do with distraction too! Have a blessed week!

    So fun! I can't wait to have my daughter start riding lessons. Thanks for sharing!!! Great Pictures!

    wow! I have never seen jousting before. In my head, I thought that you were going to run towards another person with a long spear and try to knock them off their horse…LOL!!! This looks a lot safer! 😛
    Thanks for sharing the pix! Hope you had lots of fun!

  19. Oh, I love a good jousting tournament…oddly enough, we have an equestrian center right in the middle of our lovely community…not only do they joust, but they have polo matches there, too! Tons of fun…makes us feel so classy, lol! It's random in its entirety and thoroughly entertaining 🙂

  20. Barbie says: Reply

    I had no clue what jousting was. I too thought it was between two riders, and had nothing to do with rings. Looks like fun!

  21. Jayne says: Reply

    Looks like you had a lot of fun! First time seeing it with rings, and your bff is super pretty– Love her red hair!
    Thanks for sharing!

    I tagged you! 🙂

  23. Thanks for you insight on our wood-burning stove dilemma and for giving us another option to consider, the pellet stove. I featured your comment, feel free to grab a "they like me" button! 🙂

    Have a wonderful week!

  24. Haha, love your miscellany monday, Amanda. :):):)
    I'm no help when it comes to ideas of what to post. lol 😀
    Oh, I'm totally addicted to LOTR, too!!

    Stink bugs??? In your curtains??? If that was my house, I wouldn't be in the room anymore! If any type of bug was there. haha.

    Hmm..post ideas? Well, I'm excited to see the vlog. 😉 I mean, you could talk about school, but that's boring – other bloggers talk about going to school all the time though…so.

    What about your piano playing?

    I love the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice. It's totally best. (-: I also enjoy…both Narnia movies. They're terrific. And Brigadoon. Princess Bride. Scarlet Pimpernel. A sampling of my top favs. (-:
    I wish, for a topic, that you would do a tag or two. At one point, one of my favorite bloggers gave us readers a week in which to think up any appropriate question about anything to ask her. I think she got about 149. It was really cool! The questions were truly miscellaneous. (-:
    There's two ways you could go about that: 1: have us ask you entirely new questions or 2: I could leave you a link and you answer the questions we asked her. (-: If you want a link, I think you could leave a follow-up comment and I would get it. (-:
    Hope that helps!
