Not Posting

Sorry for not posting often. Now every time I use the computer, I will make a post even if it's something silly. I got a lot of things for Christmas like a new piano, books, video games, cooking things (Did I mention I want to be a chef when I grow up?) , a magic set, clothing, and I got candy from my sister (Toblerone and Jelly Belly: Jelly Beans). My mom got Uggs. Today I got Fake uggs (Fuggs) at Target. My sister and I got our hair cut. That's all for now!
See Ya!,
Nora

My First Video Review!!!


This is my first video review please tell me if I should do this more often or if there were any problems. This is a book called The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I like this book because it is very descriptive and has really funny characters like Grover the Satyr.

Piper At The Gates Of Dawn

This week's album is Piper At The Gates Of Dawn by Pink Floyd. The title of Pink Floyd's debut album is taken from a chapter in Syd Barett's favorite children's book, The Wind in the Willows. I really want to read this book now that I know this. My favorite song is The Gnome. I mentioned this in the last post. I'm really sorry about not posting often. I have a shortcut to this and I'm on the computer every day and glance up at it and say, Oh I'll post tomorrow but I never do. If you have any recommendations to help me with this situation please comment on my blog.

Dark Side Of The Moon

This week's album is Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd. The members of Pink Floyd are: Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Rick Wright, and Nick Mason. My favorite song is called Money. My Dad hooked up his old record player (ya, that's right record player!) and mow we have tons and tons of records including last week's album Brain Salad Surgery. Back to Pink Floyd. My DAd introduced them to me when I was 3 or 4 when I was going to sleep. He sang my favorite song by them (The Gnome) and OI fell asleep. The Gnome is on next week's album.

Brain Salad Surgery

The new album this week is called Brain Salad Surgery by Emerson, Lake, and Palmer or ELP. My favorite song is Karn Evil 9: 1st impression part 2. Again I turned off my lights when it's dark outside, put on my headphones and let the music come to me.

Music

Welcome to the new Music section of my blog. I call it Music Corner. Every week or so I listen to an album that I haven't heard of. Next, I post my feelings about it and then you listen to it! This week I listened to an album called Close to the Edge by the band Yes. This album is really cool because it sounds like you are really at the concert if you turn out all the lights, put your headphones on, and lay down on your bed. My favorite song is Close to the Edge.

The Magic Half

I'm sorry I haven't been posting recently. That will change. I will now try to post at least 2 times a week. I just finished a book by Annie Barrows called The Magic Half. Annie also wrote Ivy and Bean. I liked this book because it's about this girl named Miri who has 2 twin sisters who are 4 years old named Nell and Nora. She also has 2 twin brothers (I don't know how old) named Ray and Robbie. Miri feels left out until she finds a small piece of glass on her wall...

New Sauce To Try!

Hey,
Dad and I were making chicken Brest when I said,"Shouldn't we have a sauce to go on it?" He said,"Yah! Sure!" This is the new sauce that I experimented with:
Maple Syrup (not whole bottle)
Orange Zest
Pour maple syrup into a small shallow cup. Add Orange Zest. Brush onto Chicken.

If it wasn't good... why do you think I would put it on here?

7) Grandma balance a bread pot on her head
