At our new house there is the most glorious lilac bush. It is the grandest one I have seen yet, and rambles along an ancient tree and flaunts high into the sky. It must be at least 100 years old, and there is a tidy little hollow hidden in its recesses. It’s the most wonderful spot I’ve ever seen for reading or writing in, closeted in by lilacs!

At our new house there is a flock of old, old trees. I want to hang a swing from one of them. They have been there for so long, certainly one of them needs a swing!

Isin’t the Schwinn Breeze positively terrific? We hunted for ages before we found a bike just right for me. It has a headlight. I want to get a basket and a bell for it. Everyday at school all I can think of is getting home to go for an explore on it, but I haven’t had time to go for a real ride on it yet. I will do a full feature on it directly!

Mom and Dad went to a cow auction and bought 15 jersey cows. Our milking parlor is all ready, so we have been milking! The new cows are lovely and very friendly. One of them might have a calf today. If so, I shall report it. You can count on me, friends! Actually, right now the new cows are pastured in the field with the lilac bush.

If you want to see what milking time is like at Consider Bardwell Farm you should watch 0 video. It was made by Micah and my sister Margot is the girl in it. The one with the beard is Georgia! Micah’s other videos are awesome too, if you want to see what the rest of Consider Bardwell is like you should watch the one called Consider Bardwell Farm. Click on the picture to see the video.

Consider Bardwell is the farm right next door to our farm, where my sister works. When our barns are all fixed up we are going to milk cows, and that milk will go to Consider Bardwell to be made into cheese with their goat milk. Our barns are almost finished! The milking parlor is nearly ready to go, I think. The barns on our farm are very old, from the early 1800’s, so they have needed lots of fixing. Our farm is called Wayward Goose Farm, because of this long story involving a goose, which I am too, too hungry to tell right now!

My Dresser

This is what my dresser looks like! I decided to use tea cups for things since I don’t have an actual jewelry box, and I like them better anyway! I don’t know why Jane Eyre is still there since I finished it weeks ago, and my wallet from Ghana is just a cool thing. It was sent to me from pen pals in Ghana. Pen Pals are great!

I haven’t posted in ages I know, but I have been so busy. We moved into our new house and have been scrabbling round putting things up and sticking things down, and I’ve started at a new school (which I really like). Our new house is large and wonderful and a marvelous grey African goose came with it named Oscar! My room is the best room in the whole place. Here is a sneak preview of it:

Here is what I have been doing lately:

and also this, watering my new begonia:

This week is my break from school, a whole 9 days! I have 4 days left, and there’s so much to do. I like all of my teachers at school, and even Physics is fun. Also, all the teachers are called by their first names, and you can eat in most of the classes! I have an acting class and I am in chorus, and a writing class where you just sit there and write and eat cookies and lollipops. It is hard to make friends all over again, and I still feel a little out of place, and also it was hard to find my way around to classes for a while, but everyone helped me and I am making friends pretty fast! Also, you can get a cinnamon bun for 50 cents.

Here are some preview pictures of our new house. Soon, I will do a full house tour!

Actually that’s the only picture!

Here’s what I like: dangling dog biscuits tied to a string tied to a cane over the railing of my room and teasing the dogs!

Anyway, that is all that’s happened, except for that I can’t edit photos anymore because photoshop is broken, and also that I am reading the Lord of the Rings and I’m on the last book! I also watched the first two movies since I’m past those and I really liked them! I have never really seen them before, but I am glad to see them now. Also I have really been wanting a donut. I will try to post again soon.
