Music/White Orange and Green

In the bold Gouty mountains so far far away,
I'll tell you a story that happened that day,
About a young girl her age was sixteen,
And she carried a banner White, Orange and Green


And a young English solider was passing that way,
He saw the young girl with her banner so gay,
He laughed and he choked and got off his black steed,
Determined to capture White, Orange and Green


"Oh you can't have my banner," the young girl replied,
"till you blood and mine on the bold Gouty's lie,
for I am a rebel and thats nothing mean,
and I'd lay down my life for White, Orange and Green."


And the young English solider turned white as the snow,
Got on his black steed and away he did go,
For theres no use in fighting a girl of sixteen,
Who would die for a banner White, Orange and Green

This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I found it about a year ago and have been playing it on the piano ever sense. FYI White, Orange and Green are the colors of the Irish flag and this song was written about the Irish War Of Independence. Have a happy Saturday!

An Adventure and Snow Waves

Hey y'all! This weekend my parents rented some cross country skis for our family. In case you didn't know, cross country skis are pretty much skis with only the toe attached. And you ski on flat ground. That. Was. Interesting. I didn't really like the skiing on flat ground thing. The guy we rented them from said you move by lunging your body forward. Lets just say I wasn't the greatest at it at first, but eventually picked it up. ; ) But I must say I had a pretty fun time with my family. I got some pictures of my brother (who picked it up fabulously by the way) that I thought I'd share with you all.


The other day I went for a walk in our back yard. I pulled on my dads big Muck boots, camera in hand and trudged outside. Out there I found some beautiful 'snow waves' as I call them! I made this collage for you guys!
Also, I thought I'd share some of my favorite reads lately. I found this awesome blog called Go Teen Writers. Its been so encouraging and informative, and full of great ideas from getting your writing desk organized to how to start editing your second draft. I hope you'll hop on over there and read a bit! Also, I have made three new blogger friends! ArusheeLauren and Katie! I hope you'll stop by and leave them a comment! Well, have a lovely week my darlings!
