Professor paid with Chocolate

It is still in the triple digits outside.  It's been that way for weeks. 
At least, I get to out-wait it in the cold library, becoming like a professor(haha, picture me with long grey hair and old glasses with a stack of papers and books in my hands), volunteering.  Signing children into the summer reading program(and now, today is the last day).
I am getting paid with a large bar of pure milk chocolate.  Not bad, considering it is a volunteering job.
Reading the bookseries the Series of Unfortunate Events.  On book 8, and just about to finish it.
If you decide to read those books(you'll have to skip over the narrator's lectures on why you shouldn't read this 'dreadful' bookseries), I would advise you to skip book four, since that one is a little weird.  But I really like the books.  Full of mystery, inventions, an evil, greedy count that JUST WON'T GIVE UP!  The books are funny too, and very exciting, because this one 'Count Olaf' wants to get his hands on the fortune that these three orphans will inherit from their parents.  So he also wants to kill them.  But these children stick together and help each-other and hardly ever split up.  Violet is an inventor(the oldest at fourteen) who can do amazing things with plain objects.  Klaus loves to read books on information(books about breaking codes, sailing, and anything) and remembers all that he reads.
Sunny, who is barely two years old, loves to bite things, and has four very useful sharp teeth.
I will not give anything away, for in book five, they meet some interesting people and begin to unravel secrets about their parents.

Never Alone!(this is a quote from the Door Within Books, in case you didn't know)  :)

The Door Within

The Door Within is a favorite Christian fantasy book trilogy of mine.  Maidens, Dragons, Unicorns, Knights of Alleble and Dark knights of Paragor.  A teenage boy finds scrolls about Alleble in three clay pots that shattered the moment he touched them.  Aidan finds a passage to the other world.  It is within his faith that he can go to the realm.  The place is real; it is certainly NOT from his imagination.  There is a good King, and a bad person that calls himself a Prince.  There is a war, and twelve knights sent on a quest.

The Door Within is the first book.
The Rise of the Wyrm Lord is the second book.
The Final Storm is the third and last book.

I encourage you to read these books.  They are very good and exciting.  They were thinking of making a movie, but I don't know when that's going to happen.

The Drought and the past

Yes, it is very very hot outside, regardless of the little dots of rain we received last night.  Not long ago, I went on vacation with my family to Indiana and we saw the beautiful woods in all their beauty.  I felt like I was at home.  The weather had been so perfect.  There were hardly any mosquitoes.  There were NO roaches as far as I could see in the week that I was away from my home.  I was given more books from my grandmother(five books in the Home to Heather Creek series, and another book called Angel Sister).  I've written a lot since last time I wrote in this 'online journal'.  Ryann Watters is going to be two movies based on the two books in the series(Ryann Watters and the King's Sword, and Ryann Watters and the Shield of Faith).  The scripts have been completed.  I am excited for the movie.
I am also excited(maybe a little bit more excited) for the Hobbit part 1: An Unexpected Journey to come to theaters.

The Fading Story is revealing itself, and taking shape.  God is helping me. 

Never Alone!
