Questionable Insomnia, 2014, and the Avalanche in My Backyard

Hiiii,

Happy 2014!  I thought I’d just write for this post…to be honest, I haven’t done that in a while!

So, as I type, it is approximately 9AM on a Monday morning.  School is out due to the Arctic like conditions outside, and I am awake.  Yes.  Awake on a Monday morning when I could be sleeping in.  And the funny thing is, I haven’t even slept yet.  I have tossed and turned, played music, and laid in silence, went on my computer…and now I’ve concluded that I have insomnia, and a blog post and video editing is the solution.  Delirious Olivia at her finest…

Anyways, here are a few pictures that I’ve taken over the past while of my backyard.  Loving this new camera!

Talk soon.

A Christmas Manicure

Hiiiii,

The other day I completed my Christmas nails for the year, and thought I’d share them.  I adore this new trend–half moon–and figured it’d be fun to try the style with Christmas colours and glitter.

Thanksgiving

*Cue the confetti*  Happy Two Years!  Wahoo!  We’ve made it!

Thank you all for taking your time to browse through my silly posts; I really appreciate it!  I am aware that year two of my blog hasn’t really been packed with posts, but life happened and exciting this are going to make up for it!  As I have said before, I am starting up a YouTube channel in the near future and will be keeping this blog.  It’s a lot to wrap my mind around at the moment, seeing as there is a LOT going on, but I just know that it will happen at some point soon.  

 

ANYWAYS, how about another autumn/wonderful/pretty freaking awesome picture post!?  Last Monday–for Thanksgiving–I took a tour of my Aunt & Uncle’s new farm!  Of course, having it be October, it was absolutely beautiful with a large variety of colours spanning the horizon.  Once again with the brand new camera thing, I took a whole bunch of photos and wanted to share.

A Pre-Fall Stroll

Hiya!  I (once again) apologize for my absence, as school has been NUTS the past week.  However, you should know that I am getting it together with my brand new YouTube channel and will be opening it up by the end of the month!

Anyways, today was a beautiful, abnormally warm fall day, so my family and I decided to drive around town to check out the new change in landscape.  With my brand spankin’ new camera, the experience was rather….glorious, if I do say so myself.  The quality is impeccable and I cannot wait until Mother Nature decides to finally allow real fall to begin!  For now, the leaves are still mostly green and the weather has exceeded 20 degrees.
