I think I will make up a tincture of BellaDonna for Mom's headaches and menses. Since the rain has not stopped and I truly do not feel like knitting any more for today.

none of the animals were able to communicate with me and this strange forest did not provide any food for me.
eventually, i found a stream and stayed there until my parents found me.
we all agreed the muggle camping will not be part of our summer fun next year.
i spy: a game that i need to check out in our cabin.

i have heard several girls whisper, "cunctator" as I pass by them.
so while I have not been able to do squat in the knitting and homework department, i have made a two layer cake with bumble berry jam and fresh cut strawberries in the middle layer. with butter cream frosting.

spent the other day swimming with the boys from across the lake. they are silly creatures to say the least. they were squealy about the fish nipping at their dangley bits...whatever.....
i am guessing the Mermaids were not impressed because none of them went missing.
i am learning how to hand sew. what a pain. i do prefer the magical way less fiddly.
i also learned how to make bread. that was fun.
i have a great collection of botanical items that i am taking back home with me. the oak trees are dropping acorns all ready, so i am going to see if i can grow them into a tree of my own. it might take me a while but i am hoping it will grow nice and strong.

What that silly git does not know is they are charmed and anyone who touches them besides me will have their hair turn into their cabin colours and as I have read, most of the Ashwinders have touched the decorations.
see ain't it purdy?! they have a nice cabin...
i would like to thank the city workers that left the cones sitting in front of my place of living for two months.

3. BowtruckleEducational Decree--educational decree
I am doing the scavenger hunt that was posted on the to-do wall in our Cabin. This is the most unusual knitted item that I could find. A chapstick cover. I wonder if I could get someone to knit one for me.
Then there are the eggs.

In The (#8)Chamber of Secrets, we also meet Dobby a (#9)House Elf for the first time. Determined Dobby seeks to sabotage the return of (#10)Harry Potter to Hogwarts and is pretty persistent but is unsuccessful. After a few weeks at school, the deceased Ravenclaw student who haunts the girls lavatory, also known as (#11)Moaning Myrtle, shows (#12)Harry Potter and (#13)Ron Weasley an old empty diary that dropped through her ghostly form out of thin air!
Many nifty things continue to happen for the next several months… we won’t go into all the juicy details right now… however, the ending is prime reading indeed!! (#14) Harry Potter finally kills Tom Riddle’s (a.k.a #15 Voldemort) sneaky diary (which we now know is a #16 Horcrux) and saves the sister of (#17) Ron Weasley, (#18) Ginny Weasley!!!
Oh! Of course, we must mention that the thickheaded (#19)Gilderoy Lockhart unintentionally erased his own memory, so he won’t be back for book three, The (#20) Prisoner of Azkaban…

while out walking yesterday around the camp grounds i found a treasure!!!!!!
this place is perfect for a herbology geek!!
3 truths and 1 lie.
1) i only drive manual transmission
2) i do not have a passport
3) i have 4 kids
4) i have tattoos
i am so glad that Whinesteria has gone off grounds these last few days, it is nice not having to look over ones shoulder all of the time. the recycled DADA Proff is gone as well. I find it rather creepy that he is back for more of her antics, but as they say love is blind. He must be deaf as well.

today i also made some stuff for my spoilee Celestina and for RAOK.
i suppose i should get up and start the day now the heat is going for the day. i kind of like being up most of the night and sleeping the heat away.

as you might have guessed, i like herbology and potions.
today while trying to hide from Whinesteria and the recycled DADA I came across a fruit tree.
they are not too sweet and they are NOT poisonous. i have eaten more than my share of them and I feel a bit guilty for not sharing them .
so i went in search of a bowl to gather more for my cabin mates. i hope they enjoy them.

She is just plain mean. I am not sure why my parents sent me here. Did they know Whinesteria was going to be here?
Sunday afternoon while walking in the woods I found half of a set of deer antlers. Three large prongs and a small one. It is very nice. I like it when the woods gives me gifts.

Today while waiting for the rain to pass, I made some sweets called Turtles, they are a muggle candy.
I was in the woods yesterday when I found a squirrel's next that had walnuts still in the shell, it appeared not to have been lived in quite a while, so I did not feel bad taking them. I went to go and
There were some caramels in the community candy dish, thank you whom ever brought them. (I have never seen so much candy except in a store but this place has it coming out of every crack and corner.)
Making these googey bundles of joy is more work than any painstaking potion I have ever made. They taste so good, I hope my fellow Pixies enjoy them.

Mom told me that while she is at term in Hogwarts she become extra familar with the male professors so she can pass their class. Rather sad.
A bonus for me, I found some wild mint while I was out walking. Now to find some other wild goodies for tea.

i am slightly and by that i mean totaly resenting them that they are leaving me here at this Camp. it is not fair they get to go off and see the States while I rot here.

How come those snooty French Girls at Beau Baxton's get away with everything and me, I get sent to detention. How I loath those girls. I am glad I put a jinx on all of their clothes before I left for home. Graceful they will not be this summer.
My parents think this will be a good thing for me, I can not but we shall see.
