One of the reasons I love Texas

There's always something awesome going on in the sky. We get the prettiest sunsets and the most amazing cloud formations. Hence, ever since I got my camera back in June I've had this obsession with taking pictures of the sky. Enjoy!

Please ignore the ugly half-finished building with the crane on top.

Staring straight up past the trees over-hanging my driveway.

This was just last night, and looking in the other direction we have:

And then the night before that we had this one:

When I first ran outside to see it it was almost all vivid pink and purple and really and truly looked like a painting. I ran in to get my camera and this is what it looked like when I came back out. Crazy how fast these things change.

Edit: The words aren't cooperating. Just pretend that each caption is next to the picture below. Doggone blog settings *walks away mumbling*

Walker, go home!

And stay there!

This silly dog named Walker who lives approximately two miles down the road found his way to our house about a week ago and keeps coming! The first time we just though, "Oh another stray dog." There was an address on his tag so Mom found his owners' number and called. They came and got him, and guess who showed up at our door again that morning?
He just keeps coming back! "You're not our dog!!" is quickly becoming the most often said thing in our household. The problem is that his family is gone all day on the weekdays. So he comes here where there are a bunch of kids who just loooooove dogs like him. He's a sweet dog and a good boy, but HE'S NOT OURS!!!! We don't feed him anything or give him water (can't encourage him to stay) but still he comes back. Again and again and again! His owners are trying to sell their house so eventually he'll move with them and we won't see him anymore. We'll probably kind of miss him, he is such a nice dog. But seriously, Walker!

GO HOME!!!!!!

Funny Picture

Hello, I was going to post about all sorts of things but it seems that they all flew out of my head, leaving a sad blank. To make up for this epic failure of a blog post, here is a picture of my family's dog, Murphy, that my sister took.

100TH POST!!!

The original purpose of this post was to show of some photo-editing that I've been doing, but then I saw that it was going to be the 100th post so I just had to mention it.
So moving on....voila!

You would have to have been there.

Yes, where I live, that's a big deal! It's been super-dry around here lately but for the past week or so we've been getting the occasional lovely shower. It's raining right now as I type. Earlier I went out there for a while, goofed off in the rain and came in soaking! So now I'm dressed in cozy PJs and oh, it feels so good.

Seriously funny

Now tell me it isn't hilarious. Really, I laugh every time I see it. I "lol" for real. I have no idea why it's so funny but even now I'm watching it and giggling.

It's that time of year again!

Ah, the beginning of the school year! It just started today in our house. For everyone but me, that is. I'm still working on finishing last year (cough) and preparing for the PSAT. Sooooo I won't officially start school until mid-October. This should be a good year, though. It better be. It's my junior year, the most important in highschool, so I have to well (and do everything) if I want future college applications to look good. At least I know history will be fun. Medieval history/lit! Yayyy! My other subjects shall be algebra 2 (blech), biology, Spanish, and....what for religion? I think it's some kind of Bible studies. Church history, maybe? That would mix well with the medieval stuff. I guess we'll see. But hey, it's actually not that much! The Spanish is easy, very easy compared to Latin with all of its blasted verb endings and little words with a hundred different meanings and uses... the history will be enjoyable. Biology will be tough (science has never been my strong point). But the religion shouldn't be too bad. That leaves my old friend, algebra. Well....can't be too horrible... right?

As you may have noticed, I've given my blog a makeover! Why? Because I'm a girl and that's what we do. :-P My only problem with it is that the doggone header is too small. I shall, however, do my best to make it fit. I may have to get someone else (probably The "Real" Katie :-P) to do it. hm...
