My Adventure To Surprise Part 11

Hey, everyone! I went to Surprise, AZ for the end of May/beginning of June with my grandparents (also known as The Romano Duo). I would just like to share my adventure with you. By the way, some of the times aren’t accurate. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy!

June 8th, 2018: 

I woke up at 8:00 am with itchy ankles. When I went into the living room, I noticed familiar swollen bumps (mosquito bites). So I spent the day trying to stay off my ankle but I did get up to pack a few things throughout the day.

I ate lunch at 1:00 pm. I also colored that afternoon until evening. After dinner, I colored until 9:00 pm. I started my schedule and finished at 9:35 pm leaving me 35 minutes to spare so I started playing games on my phone until it went dead.

By that time, it was 9:57 pm so I just helped Patty and Frank with decisions for the trip back to Reno until 10:00 pm when I got into bed. I tried to go to sleep at 11:15 pm but realized I needed to go to the restroom so it wasn’t until 11:30 pm when I went to sleep.

Hey, everyone! I went to Surprise, AZ for the end of May/beginning of June with my grandparents (also known as The Romano Duo). I would just like to share my adventure with you. By the way, some of the times aren’t accurate. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy!

June 6th, 2018:

I woke up around 8:00 am. I decided to have a resting day. After breakfast, I played on my phones and read. After lunch though, I got ready to get in the pool and only stayed in the pool for 30 minutes.

Afterward, I got dressed and headed into the living room to color some more in the giant coloring pad.

After dinner, I continued coloring and played on my phone some until I started my schedule. As usual, I got in bed at 10:00 pm but stayed awake until a little past midnight.

As you should know, I went to sleep past midnight.

June 7th, 2018: 

I woke up around 7:00 am. So I got up and decided to feel relaxed until the end of my trip. Anyway, I ate breakfast and decided to color in the giant coloring pad. I started feeling hungry again. After I ate, I colored more, read, and played on my phone.

After dinner though, I started coloring some more. Afterward, I took a long break and sat outside until I had to do my schedule. I managed to get into bed at 10:00 pm. I went to sleep shortly after midnight.

June 2nd, 2018:

I woke up around 8:00 am that morning. I was excited to start a new day in Surprise, AZ. I got up and started the day just like any other day. After breakfast and candy, I played on my phones and read a little. After lunch though, I was talking to Patty and Frank.

I also worked on a blog post which is http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/05/fundraising-for-the-2018-chromosome-18-family-conference-happy-world/ if you want to check it out.

After dinner, we started watching a movie on Patty and Frank’s TV (don’t care about TV but I was bored so I was grateful for something to do). Around 5 minutes into the movie, I stepped out front to see how hot it was.

It was a warmish kind of hot that night so Patty, Frank, and I went on a short walk to the empty park. I took a couple of pictures as well that day.

Once we got back, we started the movie back and finished watching the movie shortly after 9:00 pm. Afterward, I started doing my schedule. I finished up and got in bed at 10:00 pm. I stayed awake until 2:00 in the morning.

Hey, everyone! I went to Surprise, AZ for the end of May/beginning of June with my grandparents (also known as The Romano Duo). I would just like to share my adventure with you. By the way, some of the times aren’t accurate. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy!

May 31st, 2018:

I woke up around 9:00 am and just hung around the house all day.

Anyway, it was a little bit of a relaxing day for me. Around 9:30 pm, I coded and got ready for bed (regardless, I was very tired). I hit the pillows late that night again (What I mean by that is I fell asleep).

June 1st, 2018: 

I woke up around 7:00 am. Anyway, I took my time waiting for Patty to be done in their bedroom. Before breakfast, Frank said, “Happy National Donut Day” as I told him the day before. After breakfast, I wrote a lot. After lunch, I had a bit of fun swimming.

I also wanted to add that I finished a blog post which is: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/01/how-donuts-came-to-be/ sometime that day.

After swimming, I got dressed and had Frank get the powdered donut out of the donut package (we got them sometime that week). After dinner, I talked to Patty and Frank some.

Anyway, I started getting ready for bed after a conversation with Patty and Frank. Afterward, I got in the bed around 10:00 pm even though I stayed up way later than that. Shortly around 12:30 pm, I fell asleep.

My Adventure To Surprise Part 3

Hey, everyone! I went to Surprise, AZ for the end of May/beginning of June with my grandparents (also known as The Romano Duo). I would just like to share my adventure with you. By the way, some of the times aren’t accurate. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy!

May 27th, 2018: 

I woke up not knowing where I was for a second then decided to look on my phone and time said 7:00 am so I just laid there until 7:30 am and then I went to the restroom. Afterward, I had Patty make my brunch (since it was almost lunch time) and I ate it all.

After I finished, we went to Kohl’s and found me some new clothing. After I got back, I was hungry so I ate a snack. It was 4:58 pm when I finished my snack. Luckily though, we didn’t eat dinner until 6:00 pm.

About the same time I was eating the snack, I worked on a blog post: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/05/29/fundraising-for-the-2018-chromosome-18-family-conference-rainbow-of-emotions/. I also arranged to see one of my friends named Katie who lived in Glendale, AZ at around 6:00 with help from Patty and Camilla. So I was excited about that.

After that, I went back to what I was doing (which was coding). After, I waited until midnight to do my schedule. So it was around 1:00 am when I went to bed that night but I stayed awake until 2:00 am that night.

The Hummingbird Fairy Wings

Hey, everyone! I got the idea to write a story about a hummingbird when my grandmother Patty of the Romano Duo remarked,”The hummingbird wings look like little fairy wings.” in Surprise, AZ when I was visiting Surprise, AZ. Thank you, Patty! Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

Once many years ago, there lived a hummingbird named Abby who was very curious. One day, Abby wondered, “Why do I have such small wings?”. So Abby asked her mother and her mother responded, “Well, there was a fairy named Rebecca who was very curious just like you, Abby.”

Abby’s mother paused for effect. Abby’s mother continued her story,”One day, Rebecca saw some flowers that had delicious nectar and she starting eating nectar. Suddenly, Rebecca noticed a sudden tingling coming from her wings. ”

Abby’s mother smiled and stopped to catch her breath. Abby said impatiently,”Hurry up, mother! I want to hear more of the story.” Abby’s mother said, “Ok, I was just catching my breath.”

“Rebecca wondered what was happening and asked her mother what happened. And like me, her mother told her the answer through a story. By the time her mother finished the story, Rebecca turned into a hummingbird.”, said Abby’s mother knowingly.

“So Rebecca went to a wizard to get a special spell that would allow her to swap back and forth between a fairy and a hummingbird. And she still can be found today as a fairy and hummingbird.”, explained Abby’s mother. After Abby’s mother finished her story, her mother asked, “Would you like to know a secret?”.

Abby said excitedly, “Yes, please!”. So her mother said, “I am Rebecca. That is my secret now.” Rebecca laughed when Abby said, “I knew there was something magical and musical in you.”

If you see a hummingbird, that may be Rebecca or Abby flying by. Anyway, that’s the end of the story. I hope you enjoyed!

Queen Of Earth

Hey, everyone! On April 22nd which was Earth Day, I felt inspired to write a story about the Earth. Here are some related stories: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/04/23/the-back-of-black/http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/04/17/why-ladybugs-wear-black-and-red/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/23/why-trees-dance-in-the-wind/. I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, there lived a girl named Alana who loved to smell the Earth and talk to the Earth. Her parents were King Hendricks and Queen Dahlia. Her parents reigned the Earth together.

Many years went by and Alana grew into a young lady. One day when Alana was picking flowers and the Earth spoke.  Earth asked, “How would you like to be my queen like your mother when you’re older?”.

Alana said, “Yes, Earth!”. A couple more years went by, and Alana was now the queen of Earth. Alana’s queen name is Queen Eve but her real name was still Alana for non-formal events.

Alana married Stellen a couple of years later and the Earth even invited him to be the King like Alana’s father years ago. So Alana and Stellen reigned the Earth just like Alana’s parents did many years ago.

Stellen’s king name was Marthur but just like Alana, his real name was still Stellen for non-formal events. A year passed and the couple had a baby. Her name was Lalani. The Earth liked Lalani’s name.

Lalani lived the same life as her parents and her grandparents before her. So if you hear voices inside the Earth, that might be Latani and her family. That’s the end of the story. I hope you enjoyed!

The Back of Black

Hey, everyone! On the night of April 18th when I was trying on under clothing that was a sparkly black color, I said to myself,”Is this the back of the black?”. Then I realized it would be a great story. Anyway, here’s the related stories: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/04/12/starry-life/http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/19/what-if-rainbows-were-magical/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/20/how-flowers-got-their-color/. I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, there was a side of planet Ventura that was a dark black and a bright side that was a neon white. The bright side of Ventura was actually the back of the black (as it is known today).

Long ago, people who lived on Ventura didn’t realize that there were 2 different colored sides of Ventura until 2 girls were born. The 2 girls names are Savannah and Aurora. The sisters grew up to be very smart people who studied Ventura from outer space and on Ventura.

One day, the sisters made a remarkable discovery. The sisters spread the word and soon everyone knew. The discovery was indeed that there were 2 different colored sides of Ventura. Everyone had always suspected something but they were equally shocked at what the sisters had discovered.

So they honored the sisters with a museum named after them. The sisters were so pleased that they nicknamed themselves The Ventura Sisters. The mayor of Ventura asked, “What do we suggest we do about this 2 sided different colored planet?’.

The sisters said, “Just leave the planet like it is and also call today of every year Ventura Sisters Day or Ventura Day for short.” The mayor agreed and announced today Ventura Day.

The Ventura Sisters were very happy. As the years went by, the Ventura sisters got married. Savannah got married to Merc who was the owner of Adventura which was the grocery store in Ventura.

While Aurora married Assesa who was the Ventura writer, Savannah had a baby who’s named Gelica was known as Stella later in life. Aurora had a baby too a couple years later. Aurora named the baby Meloniclia who was known as Penny later in life.

So if you see Venus, that is the remains of Ventura and maybe the Ventura sisters live there with their family along with the rest of the former Ventura people. That’s the end of the story! I hope you enjoyed this story.

Why Butterflies Float In The Sky

Hey, everyone! On April 9th, I saw a butterfly flying across the sky and I got inspired to write a story about the butterfly. Here are some related stories: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/04/12/starry-life/http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/22/how-the-sea-expanded/, and  http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/04/13/why-flowers-dance-in-the-wind/. I hope you enjoy!

Once in a land far away named Blossomia, a butterfly named Orchid Rose (nicknamed Rose) hoovered low over the ground as she flew. Suddenly, Orchid gasped as a thought came to mind and landed on the ground safely.

Orchid slowly went to go ask her friend Lemona the Yellow Butterfly (nicknamed Lemon), Orchid said, “Hello, Lemon! I just got a really good idea. Do you want to help me get started with the idea?”.

“Hello, Rose! Sure, can you tell me the idea though”, said Rose.  Orchid said, “Sure.” So Orchid whispered the idea into Lemona’s ear. So Lemona got a balloon and a fan while Orchid got a butterfly vest and an umbrella.

Orchid put on the butterfly vest and opened the umbrella. Lemona blew up the balloon and turned the fan on high and facing the sky. Orchid flapped her wings and took off. Orchid was amazed that she could float.

“Lemon, fly up to the sky and float like me.”, shouted Orchid. Lemona said, “Ok, Rose.” So Lemona flew up to join Rose. So to this day, if you see a butterfly floating in a sea of sky chances are it might just be Lemona or Orchid. That’s the end of the story. I hope you enjoyed the story!

Why Flowers Dance In The Wind

Hey, everyone! I saw some daffodils blowing in the wind on April 9th and got inspired to write a story about flowers. Here are some related stories I’ve written: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/23/why-trees-dance-in-the-wind/http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/02/26/why-trees-sparkle-with-water/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/20/how-flowers-got-their-color/. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, there lived a daffodil named Sunny. She loved the way the sun felt on her petals. At the same time, Sunny wondered why the wind was making her sway from side to side.

So Sunny went to her friend Rosetta the rose to ask why the wind was making her sway. When Sunny got to Rosetta, Sunny got to experience Rosetta swaying in the wind gracefully.

Sunny observed Rosetta for an hour before leaving to ask Dandy the dandelion the same question so she could find out the answer. Sunny said, “Hello, Dandy! Why do I sway in the wind from side to side?”. “Hello, Sunny! You move side to side in the wind to make room for more flowers to move the same way”, explained Dandy.

Sunny thanked Dandy and went to go talk to Rosetta. Sunny asked, “Hey, Rosetta! How do you sway from side to side so gracefully?”. “Hey, Sunny! I sway like this”, said Rosetta as she demonstrated.

So Sunny thanked Rosetta and did what Rosetta had demonstrated at her own home. So if you see a daffodil swaying from side to side gracefully, chances are it could be Sunny swaying among her daffodil friends. That’s the end of the story. As always, I hope you enjoyed!
