Well, My sister and my two friends (you know who you are ;-)) watched Titanic this Saturday. IT WAS SOO SAD!!! If you’ve never seen it here is a quick summary, all the people board the Titanic including Rose, Jack, Cal (Rose’s fiance), Rose’s mother a french friend of Jacks and like 1200 other people. Jack and Rose meet fall in love, You learn that cal is really mean and Rose is being forced into marrying him and then the ship hits the iceberg and starts to sink… I wont say who lives and who dies… lets just say it is super sad. I cried through the whole last part. not just sniffles either, I was full out shake the whole couch crying, I think we all cried at one point. (really)Long story short the ship sinks and you should watch the movie. 🙂
Well, here goes nothing! I am taking three classes in co-op this year, two art classes and a blogging class. We have a lot of fun in art and do some pretty neat stuff. This year in portrait art we outlined and shaded this really ugly baby. Mine turned out not that great. 🙂 In oil pastels we did three pictures: train tracks, a fence, and a pear. The train tracks and fence we did with tape and the pear was push and twist (ugh :-)). And in blogging… well, I started a blog…:-) I also learned some helpful stuff about writing! 🙂 Overall…this co-op semester has been a success!
This is a hard post to write. Just recently my family lost someone very speical, a close family friend, my mom’s godmother, and my second grandmother passed away on Sunday. This post is a few of the things that my mom remembers and loved about Suzanne Donovan. From here on she will be known as Granny Sue.
Granny Sue was the first “silly adult” my mom knew. Because of Sue’s outgoing and fun personality, Mom was able to become a more confident child.
Granny Sue and her husband, Ralph, were the first people to “hire” my mom to do something. My mom would go over to their house and pull weeds or help Ralph carry things while he was painting. They treated her like a person, not a child.
One year for my mom’s birthday when she was little, Granny Sue came completely costumed as Big Bird. Ralph came as Kermit. 🙂
My mom says she remembers Granny Sue and Ralph used to take her to Dreamland Lake to feed the ducks.
For Christmas, Granny Sue wouldn’t wrap presents. She would sew my mom and her brother and sister little bags and she would put the gifts in them and tie them up with a piece of “fat yarn.” Mom said that the bags were extra speical, it was like getting two presents in one! You got the present and the bag!: -) Mom also said Granny Sue picked out the coolest fabrics to make the bags. 🙂
One year for Christmas, Granny Sue gave my mom a “pack” or backpack and filled it with P things: pencil, pen, paper, pretzels, pop… 🙂
Granny Sue made the best pumpkin bread and cheese crisps.
When my mom was little and Granny Sue and Ralph would come over to dinner, they would teach my mom and her family the most fun games, like “This is a klink” and “Bluff.”
Granny Sue was a kind and fun person and she will be GREATLY missed.
Hi! I haven’t posted anything in a long time! well I have a new music vid. up and I posted a link in my sidebar. It’s really funny but a little iffy for the younger audiance… but it’s really funny!!! lol but seiroulsly its not the best for little eyes. 🙂

This is the first of, Hopefully ;-), many book reviews I will do :-). This is about the book, Red Glass, by Laura Resau. It is an amazing book with well-developed characters and an enthralling plot line. I recommend it to people on the teen young adult spectrum of age:-).
