Crazy Hair

Youth Group on Friday was titled...crazy hair....


The picture doesn't show how bad it was, but it was so teased, coloured, and by the end of the night, an absolute terror to brush out (Thanks a lot, JENNA!)
Our hairdressers grew creative though. We had target hair, mohawks, mermaids, mullets, beard...and other various strange styles.

July Weekend

Dad and I went to the Mudgee Farmer's Market last weekend.
It was pretty good.
We walked around, drinking hot chocolate and coffee, while looking at different things.
I really liked the animals. I saw the hugest roosters, the furriest llamas, ate the nicest ice-cream, and also some really good nachos.
But that llama! Honestly, it had soft, fluffy hair that was as deep as my hand is long.
There was also a strange cow that had lots of curly hair and a humongous wet, slimy nose. (Nice description?)
And in the animals nursery we saw this baby llama:

And this tiny foal...
And these cute puppies:

It was pretty good...;D


Oh, and Happy 20th Birthday, Tom

'Mudding'...

m Well, as my previous post said we would, we went to Bourke on Tuesday. We got back yesterday afternoon and I'm happy now to do a slight retelling.

Tuesday night we watched a movie with friends. The name escapes me but it was pretty okay, corny, yet funny.
The next day, after seeing the results of the previous day's rain, we decided to go 'mudding'. This included getting into our oldest clothes and throwing mud at each other. Mudballs, if you like. And not just each other, either. In fact, the Fort Bourke sign can no longer be seen because it is covered in our world-class 'mudballs'.
We did have a photo of us covered in mud, but my eyes are closed in it, so I'll not post it.
That night we had friends over again and made our own pizza. Delish. So good. I could sell it and made a mint.
Then we made an attempt at playing a game, but it failed, so we went for a walk instead. It was very dark and very cold and I was the only person who was not wearing shoes. So I made my way through the prickles and was unable to escape the wrath of the deadly mud puddles (meaning I stepped on lots of burrs and nearly fell into many piles of mud so that my feet were not only sore but wet and dirty when we arrived home).
Even so, it was good. We left the next day, so we weren't there very long. I still had a good time.

I love Bourke.

Graffiti-ing The Street

I feel so busy lately...always a week, or two, between each blog post.
So now I'll sum it up.
The Shakespeare production was awesome. It was really funny and so fantastic. I wish I could see it again.
We got this week off school, on holidays one week early because Hannah and Angela came to stay.

There has been a lot of laughing...















Especially when we went swimming...if you can call it swimming. It was really a jump in and leap out. It has been really cold here lately and so the pool was worst than really cold. It was unbelievably freezing. I don't know what came over me.
Some pictures,
































































































































The strange thing was that when we actually got out of the pool, it was kind of nice because we were so numb and the air around us was a lot warmer than the pool had been.
We decided to graffiti the road. People were so nice, they kept purposely driving around all our drawings.


















I've also been working on my blog this morning. It's not finished yet, but I've been so busy I'm not sure when I'll get to finish it. I'll work on finding some time...

Oh, and I'll just say that I read a really good book last week and wrote a book review about it. I've posted it in the book review section so you should check it out and then try to find a copy to read. I really liked it.
