Falling Flowers- A Poem

Leaves of green, the bush stands by the road.
A leaf falls.
Flowers dot the bush, bringing color to the side of the road.
A petal falls.
The sky darkens a little, clouds rolling in.
The rain falls.
The flowers are beaten down, they cannot stand.
A flower falls.
The flower dots the hillside.
A flower falls.
The rain is merciless and unending.
A flower falls.
The ground is shaken by thunder.
Thunder rolls.
Flowers fly about in the wind.
More flowers fall.
A painting in reality.
Flowers fall.
Puddles form on the ground.
Flowers float.
Pink in a world of gray.
Flowers fall.
Tears upon a world in pain,
flowers fall.

2. The rain is beautiful
Look at it. It's like crystals falling from Heaven.

3.  The rain washes away
You can almost imagine that it is washing away humanity's messes.

4. It feels great on your skin.
Just stand outside in a tank top in the rain. Feel it pour down your skin.

5. Because with an umbrella, you can pretend to be Mary Poppins.
Because just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, kids.

The Blogger Recognition Award

Has anyone else noticed how unreliable I am with these award things? I'm pretty sure Anika nominated me for an award a while back but uh.... I can't remember. Sorry. And there are probably a few other times I haven't done an award that I am forgetting.... My apologies, everyone.

But anyways, I am doing this one. So, let us begin...

I love Canva yes I do, I love Canva, how about you...

Thank you to Canadian Doll Notebook for nominating me- I love you guys!

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Write a post to show your award
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award
  6. Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created.
I'll check off 1, and I'm doing 2, so that means I'm on step... *counts on fingers* 3!

How did my blog start?
*blinks* *remembers* wait, let's just get in my handy time machine here....

Here we are- 2014.
Look, I'm reading Madi's blog! I'm enthralled. Okay, hear that? That's my mom calling. We're going somewhere, I should put my shoes on and grab my bag. 

Okay, a few minutes later.... Aha, I'm telling her about what I just read on Madi's blog. She's listening. Then those fateful words, the beautiful ones... "You should start a blog."
"Really? Can I?"

She's nodding, she's smiling- this will be educational. I'm smiling, I'm happy- this will be AWESOME.

And thus, my blog, known then as Happy Days With AnonymousA was born. Now I call it Caught Daydreaming. Later I might call it something else- who knows?

Step 4...
Advice.

1. Check your spelling
2. Get a good camera.
Those are two things I didn't do, and now wish I had from the start! DO NOT MAKE MY MISTAKE, YOUNG PADAWANS.

Step 5.... WAIT UP. 15? That is a lot of bloggers, my friends. And most of the ones I list will probably have been nominated already....

Anika Joy
Madi
Manta
Kellyn
Shuffle
Ginnie
Bea
Lydia
MyLittleMegara
Reeths
Loren
Jaclynn
Emma
Katie Grace
Izzy

That is fifteen, isn't it?
Alright, now to follow the last step and tell the people I nominated...

//
Have a great weekend everybody- Yes, yes, I am ordering you all to have a great weekend.


I'm not saying anything, but Lego Batman has beat Batman on the NaNo games thread like, three or four times, and that has to say something about Lego batman. I mean, he's awesome. Does anyone read these?

Oh My Goodness

Hello, everyone! How's your week going?

Well, I feel so stupid right now. But it is kind of funny when you think about it....

I've had my blog for how long? Since... 2014, wasn't it? 
Well, when I first made my blog, one of the FIRST widgets I added was 'Follow by Email'. But until today, I had no clue that I could actually see how many email followers I have.

But I mean really. Don't you think I would have figured this out by now? But better late then never, I guess.

But what's really exciting is how many followers that means I have....

Forty-two followers.




I am stunned. Wow, I mean, this is crazy. There's no way. I'm dreaming, or my calculator is broken, right?

I don't know how to express how thankful I am that there are at least forty-two people who care enough to read my nonsense. Can words express? Can anything I say be adequate?

No, of course not; words cannot gauge it.


What am I giving away, you ask?
Well, you see, since when this blog was originally started it was solely a doll blog (and it has since become an everything under the sun blog), we'll be giving away....




Yes! I am giving away one American Girl bracelet craft kit, as pictured above!

How can you enter? Well, it's so incredibly hard to enter.... I mean, you have to...
Comment below with your name or online name, saying you'd like to enter. And also who referred you, if available.

Oh wait, that's not hard at all, is it?

Now, for extra entries, you can....

  • Post about this giveaway on your blog with the image above
  • Post about this giveaway on Facebook/Other Social Media and forums
  • Tell a friend
  • Comment on another one of my posts
And anytime someone gets referred through you, if they include it in their entry, you will get another entry!

The amount of entries you can have is endless!

PLEASE if you are under 18, have adult permission, as I will need your email and mailing address if you win.

Thank you all again, and may the Force be with you!

p.s. i lost the game.

A Strange Occurrence- Part 3

(For parts 1-2, click here)

Same theme song... still clean and Christian.:)

//




"Molly, if I'm going to show you the others, I need to know what power you have so we can know how- and if- you can help us. I'm pretty sure you can, but better safe than sorry."


She turned away. He watched her, curiously. "But how do you know that I even have a power?"
"Molly, the others have been watching you since your neighbor, Miss Mackerly, moved next door."


"They live with Miss Mackerly?"
"Miss Mackerly is an illusion, a cover- and soon you'll see how. But, Molly, I need to know your power!"


"Please," he asked again. She sighed, not meeting his eyes.


"I'll show you," she said, holding out her hands.



Flames crackled in her palms. Leo's eyes widened in amazement.


"Woah, cool," he said, grinning. Molly raised an eyebrow. 
"And yours is..." but then she followed his glance downward. She gasped.


His feet weren't touching the ground. Then he lead her out into the sunshine. She blinked, and then noticed two girls appear.


"This is Bethany," Leo said, gesturing towards a redheaded girl. "She is our resident illusion master." The girl winked.


"This is Athena," he said, pointing to a darker girl, who looked more serious. "She has this whole 'enhanced physical ability' thing going on. You need something done fast, or want to lift something heavy? She's your girl."


"And I'm Leo, of course. Guys, this is Molly... she's... fire."


"We.... we are the saviors of the world, Bethany said. "We three have lived together- well, for about a month now. Athena and I lived together for years before that, though. Molly, we would be honored if you would join our cause- freeing the world from evil, multi-grain toast, and general badness."


They all put their hands together. "I'm in!" Molly said, just as sirens began to blare.


"Oh no," Bethany said, her countenance falling. "They're doing it again. We have to help before it's too late."

A Strange Occurrence- Part 2

Theme song:

They have a theme song now! Listen to some of it- it's Christian and clean. :)


I also made them a poster.


//
The next day, Molly met the boy, Leo, in a shed behind her house.


"Molly, I know you're the right person to help me. I know you're one of us."


"One of who, Leo? One of who?" she asked, throwing her hands in the air.


"I think you know, down deep inside," he said mysteriously.


"Molly, do you do things other people can't? Do you struggle with what's reality and what isn't? Do things that are fantastical seem real to you because you've seen them happen?"

"....Yes..." she said, after hesitating. "But what does that mean?"

"It means," he began, "That we are the saviors of the world."

(You can play the theme song here)


"How much time do we have?" Molly said.

"15 days," Leo said. "There is no time to waste."

....What could possibly happen next?

Adventures of an Unemployed Dragoncologist Has a Cover!

I struggle with writing things if I don't have a cover to look at- I guess the cover reminds me how much I want to finish the story. So my mom and I messed around with free images and such until we found one we liked. 



The fonts are a little off, and Tilley looks a bit strange, but if you ignore that, this is pretty much how I'd imagined the cover.
The Dragon is credited to Wayne on DeviantArt. Thank you, Wayne, for having an amazing free image of a dragon.

Well, have a good weekend, everybody. I'll be watching some Star wars, reading some books, and writing, of course.

Current WIP: Adventures of an Unemployed Dragoncologist

Free stock photo of nature, forest, trees, fog

Let's say there was a secret world, right inside our world. This world has everything you'd expect of a secret world; magic, mountains, pixies.... and dragons.


Image result for dragon

In this world, dragons are feared, hated. They're kept closed up glass enclosures, never to roam free- ever.


Free stock photo of girl, forest, trees, outside

One girl, Tilly Rosenfield, disagrees. She finds dragons... fascinating. She became a Dragoncologist, which, of course, is one who makes sure the proper precautions are made to keep the dragons from getting out. But when she's fired due to secretly setting some of the more dangerous ones free....

Image result for small dragon

She sneaks one out of its enclosure, a Pygmy Squarf, only five inches long, three inches tall. His name? Flip.

Together they wander throughout the whole human world, and the magic world too, as Tilly battles her greatest fear... other people.

Adventures of Threepio: The Picnic Basket is Mine


"Artoo, it is definitely my picnic basket! I do not even
 know why you would have a picnic basket!"


"Tired of this bickering I am. Friends again, you should be, hmm."


"No, Artoo? Yes, he says no, as do I. NO!"


"To me give it!"


"That was not nice. We should get it back," Threepio 
whispered. Artoo whistled quietly in agreement.


"I am K2. I shall help you retrieve the stolen item."
"Thank you, from my friend and I! The Jedi went that way!" Threepio said excitedly.


"Hmm hmm! Mine, this picnic basket is!"


"That's my picnic basket," Han Solo yelled, jumping in front of Yoda.


Then Master Yoda was surrounded. "Stole it from
 Threepio, I did. From Artoo, he stole it, and-"


"And Artoo stole it from me! Hand it over!"

After Yoda handed it over, Han opened it and whispered to the contents, "Finally, I have you back."

"What is in there?" Threepio asked suddenly. Everyone stared at each other.

Han backed away into the shadows, while everyone made guesses.
