“My idea of good company...is the company of clever, well-informed people, who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company.'
'You are mistaken,' said he gently, 'that is not good company, that is the best.” ~ Jane Austen, Persuasion
I always have trouble trying to start off my blogs, in school it's been drilled into us to have good transitional phrases, a flow that will help the reader follow your line of thought. A hook is also essential, it grabs the reader's attention and if effective they'll keep on reading. This blog has really helped me develop my writing and kept me up to standard. I've finished my High School English and I miss creative writing, my favourite part of English was the short stories we read. You can read them in one sitting, they often have twist endings, cliff hangers. I guess I admire how one can convey so much in such a short piece of writing, how they grab the reader and suck them into a story so quickly. It's also one of my favourite things to write…maybe I will share one with you someday :)
Almost a week ago I stayed at my Great Grandma's house for two weeks while her daughter and husband (my Grandparents) were off gallivanting across the country side! They actually didn't go very far just to Fairmont Hot Springs with my Grandma's siblings and spouses. However my Great Grandma always asked, "I wonder where my little wanderer's are today" :) We spent our days, while I wasn't at school, reading, crocheting, baking and watching old movies like Anne of Green Gables and episodes of the Walton's.
Looking after my Great Grandma worked out perfectly, during exam week I could sleep in and walk to school when I was ready to study, I was able to bake little goodies for my Great Grandma and provide her company! We had a good deal of great times, times where we sat and I listened, where she would tell me stories of her youth, a sparkle in her eye. Times where we would eat pancakes for dinner for the third or fourth time, where we ate much too many brownies and rhubarb muffins. Needless to say, we had a good time :)
I'm home now and have 6 days off from school, yesterday I made some Macaron's and I've taken some pictures to share with you later on this week. I was so excited about them…but anyway I'll let you know how they went in my next post.
Well I am going to start some of the homework my teachers so willingly piled upon us before this long break. I hope you have a great day!
