Spring is in the Air // Beyond The Pages

well, I find myself writing on here… once again.

It has been a bit of time since the last time I posted, and a good amount of things has happened. For one, the snow has melted. (well, obviously, it has been +30C lately…) the corn is planted, rain has been falling, the overwhelming amount of little yellow FLOWERS (cough*weeds*cough) which also tend to be known as dandelions are sprinkled along our huge front lawn, and calving season is basically wrapped up, all the cow calf pairs are on grass, and well… looks like another year of calving has gone well and will once again repeat itself starting January!

I love this time of year, when we get lots of rain. The smell of the rain is so pleasing and… well it is so refreshing.

I often find myself with my phone camera out taking snapshots of our busy days and I enjoy looking back at them and seeing how the week has gone!!

Taking pictures is so fun ๐Ÿ™‚

I havenโ€™t been reading as much as Iโ€™d like, but my most recent read has been…

Torrent : The River of Time Series by Lisa T. Bergren

I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll ever be able to recover from reading this series!! Iโ€™ve never been much for fanasty or medieval type of books… but this one???? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

I also bought a bunch of books when I went thrifting, so they are on the TBR during summer!

I am doing all my finals this week then Iโ€™m done school so thatโ€™s exciting!!

Well thatโ€™s about it…

talk to you guys LATER

(whenever later is…)


Chickens, Christmas, and Chit Chat || Beyond the Pages

good evening peeps!

welcome to another blog post. and hey, look I’m back! Actually, not too late this time ๐Ÿ˜‰

I actually find writing blog posts to be quite relaxing, when I have the time that is! ๐Ÿ™‚

Recently, I’ve been doing a TON of school, trying to get as much done as possible before Christmas break (and if I really work hard next week I’ll be able to have two weeks off… yes, I do think I’ll be working hard ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Semester one was very interesting. As I said in my post a few days ago, I’ve been loving Christian Ethics and Creative Writing. To be honest, I’ve been enjoying all of my courses so far this year! History hasn’t been a favourite, but as it continues it seems to become more and more interesting. I’ve always been interested in historical fiction books, so learning more about WWI and WWII has definitely been interesting!

Christian Ethics has been a favourite. The course mainly focused on the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John) and it was very interesting to go in depth on each of the books. It was a course that really made you think out on your own, and I really appreciated that. I find that some courses will be very one-sided but this course was straight down the middle and you had to think out your own outcome. Although, you most likely don’t want to continue to hear me talk about about school, but there you go, that’s just my little input on my courses this year for Grade 11…

It also feels weird to think that this is my second last year of school… like next year and then I’m done! Honestly, it didn’t seem that long.. but then again, I did skip a grade, so perhaps it just feels that way to me ๐Ÿ™‚

recently in History, we’ve been focusing more on The Great Depression.

Above is a picture of “Hetty.”

If you have not watched the Road to Avonlea series, you will not recognize the name, but since I am a die-hard Avonlea fan, I couldn’t resist calling this particular chicken Hetty. She is very petite (a bantam I suppose) and she is kind of sassy…

okay, I sound kind of crazy talking about a chickens personality…

The weather has been very delightful lately, which is pretty weird for December in Canada, but I’ll take it anyways!

As I said in my previous post, I did start reading “Sophie’s Heart” by Lori Wick.


I love that book. So good.

10/10 recommend ๐Ÿ™‚

After reading that beautiful book, I am now rereading “An Untamed Land” by Lauraine Snelling. I really enjoy any Lauraine Snelling book I read! The reason for me rereading this is that I read this book like a year or two ago, but I have the entire series and never got around to reading it. So now that I want to read the series, I need to refresh my mind on the first book… ya know what I mean.

saying all that… I’m SO EXCITED for Christmas!!

Christmas is my very favourite holiday of the entire year. Although, it makes me sad that there will not be the big and fun family gathering this year!!

Every year, we have our annual graham cracker house decorating competition on Christmas Eve so I am very very excited about that!! ๐Ÿ™‚

well, I’m sure you don’t want to read any more of this boring post lol.
