Watching, crocheting, playing…

Watching:  Tuesday evening my mom, my sisters, and I went to the theatre to see The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  It was alright.  Loud, but alright.  It was eight-thirty when it ended.  And I don’t mean AM.

Crocheting:  Even if I made it a few weeks ago, I’ll tell you now.  I made a grey crocheted toque for myself.  Unfortunately, it’s slightly pointed at the top!  I’d rather it wasn’t, but it’s too late now.  *Shrug*  I’ll get used to it.

Playing:  For Yule, I got three games.  Art Academy for Nintendo DS, SimCity Creator for Nintendo DS, and The Sims 2 for PSP.  I like the first and last of them a lot, but the middle one is a bit boring.  Mostly all I do in that game is wait for the city to evolve.  Anyway, I’ve drawn loads of pictures in Art Academy.  It’s quite fun to do the Free Paint thing, where I don’t follow a lesson.  ^_^  I can draw my own way.

Other Stuff:  It’s sort of about the “Watching” part, but not really.  I’m rereading the Narnia books now.  My mom has all seven books put into one book, and I’m reading that.

That’s all I had to say for this time.  I’ll write again soon!



This dragon is pretty small, and it’s also rather large.  I haven’t measured it, so you’ll have to guess from the picture with my hand in it.  And remember that my hands aren’t very big!  ^_^  I didn’t write down any sort of pattern for this.  I made it up as I went.  And I forgot it as I went, too.  The only part I sort of recorded was the wings–so that I could make them the same–and even that is in my head.  So there isn’t any sort of chance that I could make a twin for him.  I would have made him all blue, but I ran out of blue yarn.  And I found this lovely grey, so I used it.  For the body/tail, I began at the tip of the tail and progressed towards the neck.  That’s why the tip of the tail is roundish.  And it’s short only because I got impatient.  *Laugh*

I’m writing a story now, too.  It’s about seven young dragons, all from drawings I made.  Their names are thus: Mischief, Smoke, Lark, Jess, Spruce, Oakla, and Glacier.  Glacier is the newest character, and the most unique: she has fur instead of scales.  I drew the pictures before I began writing, and it was actually Smoke’s idea to write it.  Yes, it was the idea of a drawing.  He suggested it, and he and Glacier help me when I get writer’s block.  Like Gadzooks in The Fire Within by Chris d’Lacey.  All that has happened so far is that the six original dragons played tag until it got too late.  Then they went home.  Oakla woke up before dawn after a bad dream, and wandered out of the cave where she lives.  She looked around and saw Glacier.  Oakla went over to Glacier, and they are currently having a conversation about something Glacier is writing.  That’s where I’ve stopped.  Sounds like nothing, eh?  Well, hopefully it will be more interesting as I write more.
