Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time! I was so busy : (
But thanks to all of you who still have faith in me and are still following my blog! anyway, here is part three of the Treasure Hunt the girls sent me on : )
Hint: "Many of these are green, hosting some of our favorite colors!"
So...St. Patty's day greeting cards, right? WRONG! I opened every single card I got for St. Patty's Day, and no luck! >_< It took me forever!
But then, we have lots of green PAINTINGS around the house...So I looked on the back of all of Lizzy's recent green paintings. But all I found was one that had a green flower saying, "Nice try! Here's another little hint."
Where? Where was another little hint? There wasn't anything else written on it. So I just sat on my bed and stared at the strange painting of a green flower. What an odd color to make a flower. many of them were yellow or orange, even white. She could have at least made it purple, my favorite flower color. Wait a minute. Back it up a bit. Favorite...color? "Many hosting your favorite colors". That was it!
So I checked all of the plants in my room, but no luck. So I checked in their room, by Lizzy's model flower (she uses it to paint flower pictures), and there it was!
"The internet is a strange thing, sucking us all into it. What do you use possibly the most?"
I have no idea if the "internet" is a part of it. I mean,they make no reference to the internet at all in the last sentence, and there's certainly things I do more than go on the internet! (I know, I know, *gasp*)
Thanks for reading! Check back soon!
Well, no one helped me on the Treasure Hunt, so I went looking for it for myself ;)
I first thought it was a notepad. You know, you can write on it, and you can play things like "Hangman". So I looked on every notepad I own, and I finally found this note:
"We thought you'd check here! :) Sorry, but this isn't the place. Take a look at the hint again."
So I looked at it again, just as it instructed.
"Some people use this all day every day. Many use it to write stories. Others play games on it."
Okay...so, games. Stories. Used every day. Well, I thought, what do I use to write stories and play games?
It must be in one of the computers, right? Well I checked mine. Nothing. Checked the other two, no luck. But it had to be the computer, right? I mean, come on!
But then I thought...wait a minute. It may not just be laying on the keys...it could be hidden in the computer somewhere!
I first checked their blog. Any secret pages? Anything? No. What next?
Then I checked my blog. I thought, maybe they went on my account and changed some settings somewhere? Nothing.
Next came Microsoft Word.
Bingo! Here's what the next clue is:
"Many of these are green, hosting some of our favorite colors!"
Short and to the point. But where could it be? Check back soon in my frantic search for the next clue!
Here's my last post for today. I was making some stuff for the sidebar of this blog in Paint (btw, did you guys notice my new banner? Thanks, paint!) programmed on the computer, as I made "I love comments" and I just made "Please comment" (yes, I really love comments!). But, anyway, I was looking through my pictures and I found some random things. Some are funny...etc. Take a look!
I really like that one.
Yummy. I can't even remember when or why this is on my computer...
For the record (although I would be very, very proud of myself) I did not take the picture above.
Well, what do you think? Yes, very random...tee hee. Comment and tell me what your favorite photo was! Thanks!
I have a new survey on the sidebar! Sorry, I'd post the outcome of the last one, but I deleted it on accident! :( I won't do that with this one! Please vote!
Also, I probably won't be doing as many posts, I'll be busy with other things (including the treasure hunt, and YOU can free up my time by helping me out with that! see below for details). So thanks, I'll post as much as possible, but remember, please vote on my survey and please help me with my treasure hunt!
My dolls were really bored, so I've sent them on a treasure hunt. Read all about that on Three American Sisters
. But they said, since I sent them on a treasure hunt, they sent ME on a treasure hunt (isn't that cute?)! So they huddled up and went down and did the hiding while I stayed up on the second floor. When they came up, they gave me my first hint. Here it is:
"Some people use this all day every day. Many use it to write stories. Others play games on it."
I have honestly got no clue where it could be! You guys have to help me. Please comment and tell me where you think it is! After a few comments I'll post what you all posted on one of my blog posts and then tell you where I looked and if I found it. Please! Help me!
I realized that I posted all of my pictures of the trip on here and left none for Three American Sisters
! :O Sorry! So, in turn, I am helping them make a photostory (and Thiste is going to write a short story after I'm done with this post.
Anyway, I'm doing something new from now on. Every once in a while I'll do something called Tween's Daybook, and it's pretty cool. I'll probably do it about once or twice a week. Here it is!
Date: Saturday, April 17th
Starting time: 10:27 AM
Mood: happy, a little hungry
Outside my window: a bunch of hills...pretty! I was just in: the other living room I'm thinking: "Yay! It's Saturday!"
I'm reading: "Queste" from Septimus Heap, and I'm waiting for something from the library. I know I'm reading more (I heart reading!), but I can never keep track of them.
I'm listening to: My parents talking in the backround and the clicking of keys.
I'm wearing: Jeans and a black shirt with a cute purple giraffe. Teehee.
I am also doing: Breathing
Yesterday, I: Went to school and said "TGIF!"
I'm excited for: The weekend
I'm sad because: I'm not sad...did I not already say I was in a happy mood?
I'm hungry for: I don't know. Once I have breakfast, chocolate sounds good.
The song stuck inside my head is: "Warts and All" from "Honk!", the musical I'm in.
I want: To go somewhere and eat.
I love: My families, my dolls...
This week, my goal is: To have fun. Goal accomplished.
Ending time: 10:36 AM
FINALLY! It's here! Sorry it's later than I told you...I got home so much later than I expected! But anyway, here it is! Kidnapped, Part 3!
(told completely in Felicity's point of view)
A SHORT STORY BY: DOODLEDOG
BAM! Felicity threw herself against the door once again. She knew it was useless. She knew there was no way out. Phillip had barred the window and the door was still locked. She knew that in her mind, but her mind didn't seem to be getting the message to her body to stop throwing herself against the door. BAM! Slumping to the ground, Teetee began to cry. She wasn't one to cry. She couldn't even remember the last time she had cried. No, Thistle was the real softie, and even Lizzy cried when necessary, but Teetee? Never. But this was different. She had almost escaped, almost made it out of the village... But then what? Teetee asked herself. Then what would I do?
They'll look for me, Teetee thought, lifting her head. I'll bet they're on their way right now. She smiled to herself. They would find her. And they'd go home and have a wonderful time again. Maybe Lizzy will even paint a picture while they're looking, Teetee told herself, gradually rising and walking over to the bed. She stretched herself out onto it and found her joints sigh, sore from the hard door she couldn't break through. They'll be here, she thought drowsily. I'll just wait here until they come... And, with that, she felt herself sink into sleep.
SCRATCH! Teetee woke with a start as her lunch plate was thrust under the door. She rose, rubbing the sleep out of her eyes, to retrieve it. It was a small peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich. Clink-clink! Teetee listened as the person on the other side of the door undid the locks. She heard them hesitate a moment, then quickly open the door, thrust a glass of water into the room, then closed it and locked the door again. Teetee sighed. That had been her first idea of escaping, but she had then decided that it wouldn't work and instead climbed out the window. That didn't go well, either.
After gulping down her lunch, Teetee shoved the tray back under the door and left the cup by the door, right where they had put it for her to drink out of. She usually put the cups there, and they "disappeared" while she was sleeping.
She stood up and looked around. She would usually lay back on the bed and sleep again, but she wasn't at all sleepy. But the room was so bare that she knew there was nothing else to do. Yet, she knew she would be able to think of something. There's an idea waiting to be found anywhere you go, Mama would always say. Felicity just had to find it first. That was it! She could be an explorer, going on a voyage to find land!
"First stop," she mumbled to herself. "Bedland!" She marched over to the bed and pulled the covers back. "Hmmm." She pulled the blankets off the bed entirely. "Small amount of land, no mountains or hills, and a bit boring, but still something! March on!"
After she had visited the furniture items, she moved to the walls.
"Plain and white," she murmered. "But much more room. Now I just have to check it for...parasites." Closing her eyes, Teetee stuck her hands out and felt the first wall. "Completely smooth. Moving on." The second wall was almost completely smooth, except...
"What's this?" Felicity opened her eyes as she felt something, some kind of dent, in the wall. "It seems to be some kind of...closet?" How had she not noticed it before? There wasn't any real doorknob, only a space taken out of the door to where your fingers could fit in it and pull it back, which Teetee did.
"Wow," she whispered. It was filled with fabric! "I could do so much with this!" Pulling out clumps of fabric at a time, she plowed through the entire closet until, at the very back corner, she found a sewing machine. "No way," Teetee said in awe. "It's like this closet was made for me!" She picked up the sewing machine and brought it out to the main part of the room to plug it in. She then grabbed one of the fabrics and began designing, planning where she was going to put what and where to cut what.... "Oh, no! I need scissors!" She looked madly for a pair. She finally found one at the very top of the sewing machine, and she got back to work. It wasn't long before she had three dresses cut from different fabrics, ready to be sewn. She then sat down and carefully began to sew them.
It took her hours to finish the first one, then it was time for bed. But Teetee couldn't sleep. She stayed up all night working on the last two, and by the time morning had come, she was done. And exhausted. She hardly had the conciousness to climb into bed, and before she knew it, she was asleep.
CLICK! Teetee woke drowsily as she heard the door unlock and creak open.
"Shhhh!" she heard a familliar voice whisper. "She's asleep!"
"We have to wake her up," another voice said. "We need to go. Now!"
"Teetee?" Felicity rolled over and stared drowsily at her sisters.
"How-how...you found me!" she stuttered finally.
"You're okay!" Thistle cried quietly, hugging Teetee.
"Let's save the celebration for later," Lizzy said urgently. "We'll fill you in when we get in the car, but now we've got to move!" Teetee didn't ask any questions. She simply swung her legs out of bed and gathered up the dresses she had made. "Grab some of those fabrics for me, will you?" she asked her sisters. They nodded, doing so, then leading the way out of the room and down a hallway.
"Now, you look dazzling!" Teetee froze as she heard Mama's voice. What was she doing here? "Just stand still, and I'm going to turn you around now, so you can't see yourself."
"Okay," another voice said.
"That's our signal," Lizzy whispered, and the three of them made their way silently across the living room and out the ajar door, into the car waiting outside.
"Get down!" Thistle told them. "Mama's coming out with that awful woman any moment now!" The three fo them ducked just in time.
"Thank you again," the woman was saying.
"Oh, it's really no problem," Mama replied. "I've got to go now, there's another client to attend to!"
"Right, then, see you! I'll be sure to ask for you next time!" the woman said, and Teetee could just imagine her waving. Mama got in the car and quickly drove away.
"Coast is clear," she said after a few seconds. The three siblings sat up.
"Now," Teetee said. "Tell me exactly what happened."
So they did. They had gotten a call saying they wanted ransom, blah, blah, blah, and set off on a big road trip to find her. When they had finally gotten to the city the police had traced the call to, gotten talked to by some weird woman who had given them a bunch of strange facts, then Thistle had figured out that it was some kind of kidnapping neighborhood and they had thought of a plan. The plan had been that Mama go in as a makeup artist, advertising ACME and giving a free makover while the two sisters go and find Thistle. And then they had.
"And what's with the dresses and the fabric?" Thistle added.
"I found a big load of fabric in the closet, and a sewing machine. I was super bored, so I put together a bunch of dresses. Here, there's one for each of us." Teetee gave one of the dresses to each of her sisters.
"It's so pretty!"
"I love them, I really do!"
"Oh," Lizzy added. "And I painted you this." She handed Teetee a canvas with a red rose.
"Lizzy!" Teetee gasped. "It's gorgeous! Thank you so much!"
They all hugged each other, and Teetee smiled to herself again.
They were all safe.
Well, I hope you guys liked it! Please comment and tell me what you think (I absolutely LOVE comments!) ALL COMMENTS ARE WELCOME!
It's right before we're going to leave for school, so I'm just going to tell you that I am going to get home and finish Kidnapped ASAP! Check back around 5:30 or so (I have rehersal until four, get home at about four-thirty, and then I'm going to cool down a bit...then on the computer!). :) Can't wait to tell you the adventure of the Dolls, the Finale!
I'm back! The Dolls and I had an awesome 4-day little mini vacation, and I took lots of pictures! Most of them are of the dolls out by one of my grandma's pool (you can see some of the pool and her flowers in one of the pictures). This is just like a photogallery, so no story like a photostory. I'll try to finish Kidnaped later, but expect it soon! Now, just sit back, relax, breath, and scroll down!
I hope you guys enjoyed this! I definately had a great trip! ;) Please comment and tell me what your favorite picture was!!! I had a wonderful trip, but I'm also happy to be back (with access to a computer)!
I have to keep this quick because I still have to get ready and we're leaving soon, but I'm going on a road trip with the Dolls! There isn't any computer to post on where I'm going, so sadly there will probably be no post in the next four days, and I wish I had enough time to finish Kidnapped right now, but I really don't! Sorry! I get back on Sunday, so maybe expect it then, or anytime later that week. BUT, even though there is no internet, I am bringing the camera and I am sure to take lots of pics of the dolls! Some I will post on mine, some they will post on theirs (click here
to go to the Doll's blog).
I'm excited! But I will miss my site :(
I'll be back on Sunday!
