Ten Things I do daily

I have been tagged by two sweet maidens over at Young Homemakers! Thanks, Rachel and Jessica!

Since this one only has ten things I must list I think I can give it a go...

Here goes...

Every day, I :
  1. Check my email and my blog to see if anyone has commented. I adore comments and I absolutely love hearing from you!
  2. Read. I don't feel like my 'lunch break' is complete without a book in my hand. This might cause you to say "well then, how does she eat?" Simple. I hold the book in my left hand and use my right hand to eat.
  3. Hmmm... this was harder than it looked... oh well... let's see, I'm always on hand to help my mom make a home-cooked dinner and do half the cleanup and dishes... *Thinks to self: Oh come on! That was unutterably dull...*
  4. Make jewelry. It's my little business operation. Especially in the past few weeks... I've been working on listing some jewelry on Etsy, and also I'm planning to put a rack of my jewelry in a florist's shop sometime next week, so I'm creating some new inventory.
  5. Laugh. With two very funny brothers in the house there's usually something to crack up about. I can't remember a day when I haven't laughed about something. :)
  6. Laundry. There are 5 of us in our family and there's always more laundry to wash. *that was also unutterably dull...sigh*
  7. Think, Julia, Think! What else do you do all day?... Well, on weekdays I do my schoolwork. I'm very much looking forward to next spring, when I shall be graduating from the 12th grade (Yeee-Haw!) and will no longer have to put in 180 days of school a year. (Something that's required for homeschoolers in Georgia.)
  8. Write. While you can see that I don't manage to do a blog post every day, I almost always write something about the day down in my real-life journal. So far I've been doing it since I was 11 years old, and I have six and a half years of memories recorded to look back on and laugh or cry about, as fits the entry.
  9. I used to have to go outside and feed our 15 Rhode Island Red chickens every day, but we've switched that over to being my brothers' job, and they no longer have to do the dishes with Mom. *I'd rather do the dishes anyway!*
  10. Pray. While I don't always read my Bible every day - I want to though- I always find time to pray. Usually when I'm by myself somewhere... outside, or in my room... It doesn't have to be long, but it's crucial to my walk with the Lord. Think about it this way... how do you have a relationship with someone you never talk to? You don't! So... I try hard to pray every day.

OK... Now, to be extremely merciful to my fellow bloggers, nobody is officially 'tagged', but you are all warmly encouraged to do this tag.... so let's see which of you really enjoy this! :)




  1. This was fun to read! And I love your jewelry! :-)

  2. Yay! Tags are pretty much's a possibility that I might do this one...

  3. I might have to do that tag!

    Thanks for your comments. The goldfish joke was funny :) Oh, and thanks for telling me you were "GeorgiaPeachyKeen" on Etsy - I added you back!

    Stocking up your inventory - the sound of that makes me giddy! As soon as I was set up, I started looking around thinking, "This is too fun! What else can I sell?" I was surprised at how easy Etsy is.

    Oh, I just found out a couple weeks ago that my Dad and sister and I are going to the Father Daughter retreat next year! Do you know if you're going again? The gardens look so pretty, and I can hardly wait to hear the speakers.

    God bless!

  4. Lol! You are not unutterably dull, I thought your post was funny! When I was reading more often than I do now, I used to read and eat the same way you do! (breakfast, lunch and dinner sometimes if we weren't eating at the table). We just switched our chores, also. I had dishwasher and now I have wash pots (NOT the favorite chore in our house - yuck!).

    Hope you have a blessed day!

    p.s. - Thanks for calling us "sweet maidens"! Your sweet, too!

  5. I liked the post! I love your blog. You always have interesting things to say (unlike me) and I enjoy reading your blog. I love the picture, so cool!

    I'd love to see you do this one! I can't wait to hear what you do all day! :)

    Miss Breezy,
    I know! Isn't Etsy SO much fun? I absolutely love it!!
    Yes! I am going to the next Father/Daughter retreat in March! I would love to meet you there! :D That would be so neat! We should arrange a spot to meet each other. :)

    Rachel and Jessica,
    Thanks so much! And yes, you are very sweet! I enjoyed the tag!
