Misty Is Preparing For Take Off

I'm fighting with the lining of my bag and will have to make some adjustments when I get home tonight. Sewing the muggle way just is absolutely no fun. I refuse to let it defeat me! I went in the aviary to see my owl Misty and bring her a treat. She is so ready for her trip to see Victoria Pettigrew. I stayed a little while with her before making my way back in to the house. Tomorrow is the big day.

Spring Fever!!!!!!!!

It is so pretty with the sun glinting off of Hogwarts. I'm sitting under a big tree trying to understand my homework from potions which is easily my worst class. I absolutely refuse to let it defeat me though and that's why I'm spending such a pretty spring day with my books instead of my dreamy boyfriend. He's at quidditch pratice right now but he would have skipped it to spend a few moments with me.

Easter Almost Here

I've never been so happy or anticipated the end of Lent so much. I gave up all bad snacks for Lent and let me tell you that I've been suffering. The first two weeks everytime I made a sandwich I thought about how good some chips would be with my sandwich of course it didn't help that there was a huge bag of chips on the kitchen table. I was okay for the next couple of weeks and then cakes and cookies started calling my name. This last week has been rough but I only have two days to go. Whoo hoo!
