  • I’m back: + a Christmas blog tour!

    Hello all, I hope you are all having a lovely November. I haven’t had time to post much, but hopefully that will change soon! It snowed yesterday, like LEGIT snow, not just a dusting. There was enough to make a snowman, and have a snowball fight! And that reminded me of, you guessed it, CHRISTMAS! My favorite holiday is just around the corner, and I am here to announce the beginning of the signups for my blog tour!! *cheers and throws confetti* Here is the link to the doc: https://forms.gle/BS4zdFRPVfP993pF9

    It will be the second week of December, so you have some time to fill it out. I will be posting a reminder later this month as well. I can’t wait to hear from you all, have a great week!

    *Side note: PLEASE read all of the descriptions of the questions. There are specific instructions for the date you choose, so you are sure to get the date you want. Thank you!

  • Muscles, Bread and CO2 || Biology Report

                In biology recently, we studied cellular energy. We studied the processes of cellular respiration and photosynthesis, which both produce energy for the cell to use. I thought it was fascinating, and I decided to write about fermentation, which is another way that cells produce energy!

                In cellular respiration, a cell uses glucose (sugar) and oxygen to produce carbon dioxide, water, and most importantly: energy. The energy is called ATP, and cells use it to perform lots of tasks.

                Fermentation is the way that cells produce energy when they don’t have enough oxygen to continue cellular respiration. There are two types; alcoholic fermentation and lactic acid fermentation. Fermentation is not as efficient as cellular respiration, nor does it produce as much energy.

                When you are exercising and your muscles feel sore, it is because of lactic acid fermentation. You are working your cells harder than usual, and your cells must make a lot more energy. There isn’t enough oxygen for your cells to continue cellular respiration, so lactic acid fermentation begins. Lactic acid fermentation converts glucose to lactic acid, and the lactic acid allows the cell to continuously make energy, even without oxygen.

                That is why your muscles feel sore after a workout, because of the lactic acid that was produced. If you stretch your muscles before and after a workout, that will spread out the lactic acid, and you won’t be as sore. The more you exercise, the more your cells will be conditioned to produce large amounts of energy.

                Alcoholic fermentation is the second type of fermentation, and it is used to make foods like pickles, yogurt, soy sauce and of course; bread.

                The process of alcoholic fermentation is similar to lactic acid fermentation, except that it produces ethanol and carbon dioxide, as well as energy.

    In bread baking, yeast consumes sugars in the dough to ferment them and makes ethanol and carbon dioxide as byproducts. The carbon dioxide is what makes bread rise. The alcohol evaporates as the bread is baking, making that classic bread-baking smell.

    I thought it was fascinating how cells can produce the energy they need in several different ways. It was interesting to learn about the practical real life application too.

  • A Triathlon, Skydiving and Pumpkins: My Month in Review!

    It was a great month- the only thing I didn’t like was how fast it went!

    AnnaKate, my other sister M and I did a corn maze, and we had a blast. The weather was really nice (it did get kinda cold after the sun went down though…) and we managed not to get lost. Not TOO lost, anyway. Then we got pizza and homemade donuts (lemon glazed- YUM!) and had a sleepover at M’s house. It was so much fun ❤

    A really likes taking selfies lol, she is always ready with a big smile! Also, I had an orthodontist appointment this month, and I got new wires, which basically means my teeth moved/straightened out again- yay!

    AnnaKate, A, baby S, L, C and I picked pumpkins- we had so much fun! They were all thrilled to take home their pumpkins…

    WE WENT SKYDIVING!!! AnnaKate and I did indoor skydiving, and it was a BLAST! It’s basically a wind tunnel that makes you float on the air, and it really felt like flying. It was easy, and a lot of fun. I would totally recommend it if you are ever near an iFly… It was an amazing experience, and I loved it so much!

    We stopped to visit my niece, nephew and sister-in-law after we went skydiving. It was fun to hang out with them, they’re really sweet kids!

    Our cat, Millie is our study buddy! She especially loves taking naps on the school books lol.

    So many people! There were around 25 people in the house for birthday celebrations, and it was awesome! There were a LOT of little kids- it was so much fun!

    WE DID IT! The last triathlon of the year, and we placed 4th in teams overall. It was fun, but really cold. Plus, the biking part was SUPER challenging this year. I had a lot of fun though, and am already looking forward to doing more triathlons next year.

    Last Month’s Goals:

    Post 3 times a week– erm no, not really… I started off ok but then things got crazy busy and blogging went on more of a back burner.

    Have a pickup installed in my guitarYes!

    Make progress on designing the for KING & COUNTRY fan site– nope. I did realize that I accidentally published it awhile ago, so I took it down. That’s about it lol.

    Practice guitar more yes. Sort of.

    Clean and organize my closet– yes, it looks so much better!

    This Month’s Goals:

    blog two times per week

    get ready for blogmas!!!

    buy items for my giveaway…

    work on learning tab on my guitar

    set up my bike for use with the bike trainer

    Random funny memes:

    That’s all for this month. What did you all do this month? What was your favorite thing you did in October?

  • Album Review || What are We Waiting For?

    Welcome back, my lovely readers! I’m really excited for this post- my first album review. Conveniently, it is an album by my favorite band, for KING & COUNTRY. This week, I’ll be reviewing What Are We Waiting For?, released on March 11, 2022.

    What Are We Waiting For?is their 4th studio album, following 3 years after their extremely popular Burn the Ships album. What Are We Waiting For?is not their strongest album musically speaking, but the lyrics are perhaps the most insightful we’ve seen from them since their third album, Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong.

    If I had to pick just one word to summarize this album, I would pick unity. We live in a culture that tries to divide and polarize us at every turn, but what if we are more alike than we are different? What Are We Waiting For? explores the theme of unity with 13 insightful, moving tracks.

    The first track is the popular single RELATE. With a bit of a techno and percussive beat, the lyrics are a deep but catchy start to the album.

    I don’t know what it’s like to be you
    You don’t know what it’s like to be me
    What if we’re all the same in different kinds of ways
    Can you, can you relate?

    The next song is Broken Halos. This was not my favorite song, and honestly the music video makes zero sense to me. However, the lyrics are deep, and are quite thought provoking.

    For Heaven’s sake, we’re missing hope
    Been saving face and throwing stones, so
    Take your mistakes, just let ’em go
    ‘Cause don’t we all wear those
    Broken halos?

    None of us are perfect, in fact, we’re all sinners. Broken Halos is a perfect segway into the next track, Love Me Like I Am. This song is a switch from the previous percussive beat to a more minimal piano melody. It declares that no matter where we’ve been, what we’ve done, God loves us. Not just the person I think I should be, or when I think that I finally have it all together. As cliche as it may sound, He loves me like I am, right here, right now.


    I am a little unable
    To put all my cards on the table now
    But somehow You’re still with me

    It’s amazing that You can
    Love me like I am
    And even when I can’t
    You still love me as I am

    Unity, with it’s joyful, choir backed chorus, is the fourth track. Dante Bowe features on this track, bringing powerful lyrics in the first chorus. It is a song that cries for unity in our culture, in our daily lives. What if we could live in unity with each other, with our brothers and sisters? Instead of squabbling over every little thing, what if we started to act like we truly love one another? “ ‘My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.’ John 15:12-13.”

    Will you walk with me down along the street?
    Talk to me, tell me what you see?
    Stand by me, so the world will see
    You and me, in unity?

    For God Is With Us follows, with music building up to a celebratory chorus. It begins like a Christmas song, rejoicing at the birth of our Savior. Then, the lyrics move to Easter, with the pain of the crucifiction giving way to the joy, hope and new life of Easter.

    Can you feel the hope that’s rushing in?
    Can you hear the song that’s echoing?
    Join with the choir as we sing
    This is where love truly begins

    For God is with us.

    The music drops to a minimal level in Hold On, Pain Ends (which, when abbreviated, spells HOPE), mimicking a heartbeat with the bass line and drums. The story-like lyrics remind us that pain isn’t forever, and joyful times will come.

    Breathe in and breathe out
    I know it hurts now
    Pray through the waiting
    Hold on, pain ends

    Hope when it’s all gone
    Hope when it’s all wrong
    Nothing is wasted
    Hold on, pain ends

    Track #7 is Unsung Heros, with synth/symphony music backing the sweet and moving words. Written for Joel and Luke’s parents, David and Helen, this song is a beautiful tribute to their parents’ love.

    You’re strong like your father even when you are scared
    When I was in trouble, you never left me there
    And you love like your mother, like there’s nothing to lose
    You’re an unsung hero, so I’ll sing this song for you

    Next up is Harmony, with the same musical sound as Unsung Hero. Meant to be a postlude of sorts of Unsung Hero, this minute long track features Sleeping At Last’s Ryan O’Neal.

    Just the way that You taught us
    Sing our songs
    Our melodies
    In harmony.

    Shy is the most pop-ish (is that a word?) song on the album, with a driving beat unlike what we’ve seen in the rest of the album. It continues the theme of unity, and it makes me wonder, what would we spoke up for what we believed in, what was right? What if we spoke for the voiceless and the vulnerable? How would our world change, how would we be changed?

    When the world is trying to cut me up
    And the fear is running through my mind
    You won’t see me backing down
    I’m not gonna be shy

    In the name, in the name, in the name of love
    I’m not gonna be shy

    TOGETHER is next, backed by Kirk Franklin and his joyful, upbeat choir. The song isn’t new, in fact, it was released as a single in 2020, and again as a part of the Burn The Ships deluxe album. Nevertheless, the message is still as powerful and relevant as it was 2 years ago.

    If you’re lookin’ for hope tonight, raise your hand
    If you feelin’ alone and don’t understand
    If you’re fightin’ in the fight of your life, then stand
    We’re gonna make it through this hand-in-hand

    And if we fall, we will fall together
    Together.

    Seasons is the love song of the album, with a simple, beautiful melody. Joel and Luke wrote this for their wives, Moriah and Courtney. It tells of a deep, enduring love that remains strong and true in all the seasons of life.

    Oh-oh, I know
    It’s not always easy
    But when the winter comes
    I will always believe in us

    I love it how we dance through the fire
    I love it how we sing in the rain
    As long as I’m breathing
    I’ll be yours through the seasons.

    The next song, a continuation of the #PricelessMovement, Cheering You On has the same musical feel as Relate and Broken Halos. Life is hard, but the powerful lyrics remind me that I’m not alone. Life can be hard, but I’m never alone, there is always someone there to cheer me on.

    I’ll be cheering you on when no one else will
    I’ll be cheering you on as you run your race
    And at the end when it is finished
    May they say you were

    Gracious in the fight of it
    Humble at the height of it
    Choose to love in spite of it all
    And when you’re questioning the why of it
    Rise up in the light of it
    I’ll be by your side in it all
    I’m cheering you on

    The 13th and final track, and perhaps my favorite, is simply titled Benediction. With an organ highlighting the beautiful harmonies, the lyrics are the star of this deep, moving track. It is a humbling and hopeful end to the album, reminding us all of God’s awesome power, and the deeper-than-we-can-imagine love for us; for you, for me, for everyone.

    If You can hold the universe
    Then You can hold me too
    If You can form the human heart
    Then You can mend it too
    If You could love Your enemies
    I’ll love them as myself
    And if You gave Your life for us
    Then I’ll give mine as well

    If You could see the sparrow
    Then You can see me too
    If You could save a sinner’s soul
    Then You can heal me too
    And if You’re close to those who mourn
    I know You’re here with me
    And so I say Your will be done
    For all eternity

    With all my mind, with all my strength
    I want to be just like You
    In all my days, in all my ways
    I want to be just like You
    I want to be just like You.

    This album is a beautiful reminder to us all, that even when through wars, diseases and political uproars, God is our constant, He is in control. Through all the seasons, He is with us, cheering us on.

    For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

    What was your favorite song from this album, and why? Did you have any thoughts to add? I would love to chat with you all in the comments.

  • Blog Tour || An Interview with Pearl Christine

    Welcome back to PoppySeeds, and welcome to the Pearl Christine’s blog tour! She recently launched her new blog, Pearl Christine, so be sure to check it out and show your support.

    Pearl Christine is a Jesus-loving historical and contemporary fiction writer who writes to glorify and serve her King. When she’s not writing, you can find her lost in the woods with her camera, in the middle of another creative project, spending time with her seven siblings, running, or writing and decorating letters. You can find her at her website, pearlchristine.com, where she talks about all things creative.

    •What is a random fact about yourself?

    Mm, I’m not a super interesting person. . . I guess that I have seven siblings. 😀 Not super random, but it is a fact about myself. 

    •Congratulations on launching your new blog! What can we expect to read on Pearl Christine

    Thank you! ❤ My blog will hold everything from photo dumps and snippets & other things about my writing, to craft projects and inspiration. 

    •That sounds awesome! What is your favorite thing about blogging?

    Ah, there are so many things that I love about blogging! Favorite thing would be the community! There are so many wonderful people who take the time to read my posts and support me, and it means so much ❤ I’ve met quite a few people that I wouldn’t have met if I didn’t blog, and I’m immensely glad I did decide to start blogging and have the chance to meet so many amazing bloggers.

    •What is your favorite DIY project you’ve done?

    Ooh, I’ve done a lot of fun projects. . . I’d say making this year’s fall wreath was especially fun because it was so many sunflowers. But I’ve also loved some of the bracelets I’ve made for penpals, too.

    •How many craft projects do you have going? 

    It just depends! Right now, I’ve just finished up with a few of my main ones (wreaths, bracelet making, baking, etc), and I’ve mainly been focusing on getting my blog up and running and writing, but I do have a few ideas. 

    •What is your favorite art medium? 

    Ooh. . .watercolors, I’d say. They’re so much fun to use to paint with but can make pretty hand-lettering or a great background for any other sort of project.

    •What writing projects are you working on that you are the most excited about?

    I have quite a few different writing projects going right now, but the one I’m super excited for is the one that I outlined over the summer, and I’m going to be drafting for NaNoWriMo (national novel writing month) next month. Here’s the blurb. . . 

    This summer, Eleanor Miller has a wonderful surprise: A whole month staying with her aunt in her big bed and breakfast, right on the beach in Sunset Bay, along with her older sister, Lily. Soon, they both are discovering the joys of a summer at Sunset Bay, from sailing and swimming in the ocean to walking on the boardwalks and attending day camp, both of the girls are thrilled. But the best discovery of all for Eleanor is meeting Melissa and Gina Douglas, two sisters who quickly become her first best friends.

    Gina wants to be brave. More than not being scared to go out into the waves or something small like that but true and real bravery. Melissa needs to learn how to be humble, more than not jumping up and down when you win, or something petty like that, but be honestly humble. Eleanor wants to be different. Not just wearing her hair differently than others, but to be truly extraordinary.

    Will the girls be able to find the key to unlock the answers to their problems before the summer is over and Eleanor goes back to her home? One thing’s for sure though: It will be a summer the girls never forget.

    Other than that, I have a project called Finding Violet in the works, plus a few others. 

    •Do you prefer film or digital cameras, and why?

    So. . . spoiler alert! I’ve never used a film camera. 😛 I really wouldn’t know. But I have heard many times that digital takes much better photos, so if I had an option, I’d probably go with digital. 

    •What is your favorite place/thing to photograph? 

    Nature! I love wandering around our woods and looking around at the beautiful things that God has created inside of it. 

    •What advice would you give to aspiring creatives, writers, photographers, and crafters to encourage them? 

    Observe and look for inspiration. There is inspiration waiting for you wherever you go, and you just have to find it. So. . . don’t give up. Keep your eyes open and you will find the inspiration and motivation you need to keep going.

    •What is one question you wish that I had asked you?

    Ah, I loved all your questions. . . I have no idea to be honest. XD Thank you so much for doing this with me, BetsyJane! ❤ 

    Thank you for doing the interview, Pearl! It was fun.

    Check out previous stops on the tour for more fun content!

    Don’t forget to check out the final stop on the blog tour tomorrow, on my sister AnnaKate’s blog!

  • 20 Questions Book Tag || + a GIVEAWAY!

    Rebekah from Books and Hooks recently tagged me for this, and it was definitely a fun tag. Be sure to check out her answers here. Thanks for the tag, Rebekah! I enjoyed answering all of the questions.

    While we’re on the subject of books, check out this giveaway contest to win a copy of Mike Allegra’s brand new picture book, Sleepy Happy Capy Cuddles. It looks like a really fun book, I think my nieces and nephews would love it!

    With all of that said, on to the tag!

    1: How many books is too many for a series?

    I like long books, but sometimes series drag on too much without anything happening. Some series are better than others, so it depends. With some books, even having a sequel is too many, but others (like the Anne Of Green Gables series and The Chronicles of Narnia) have a lot of books, and are SO GOOD! I’d say as a general rule, 5 is a good number.

    2: How do you feel about cliffhangers?

    In chapters, they’re great. At the end of books- eh, I have a love/hate relationship with them.

    3: Hardcover or paperback?

    Paperback. I like the flexibility, plus, the spines don’t get all messed up like hardcover books do.

    4: Favorite book?

    😅 That’s hard. I’ll choose from 3 categories:

    Series: The Book Of The King, series by Chris Fabry and Jerry B. Jenkins.

    Classic: Anne of Ingleside or Pat of Silver Bush, both by L.M. Montgomery

    Contemporary: Dust and Shadow by Kara Swanson.

    Fantasy: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.

    5: Least favorite book?

    I don’t know that I have one.

    6: Love triangles, yes or no? 

    No, they’re usually written really poorly. Plus, I’m not a huge fan of romance books anyway.

    7: The most recent book you couldn’t finish?

    Hmm. I think the only one was Green by Ted Dekker, because I was SO lost and it was really weird.

    8: A book you’re currently reading?

    I’m reading Winnie-The-Pooh by A.A. Milne, but I’m almost done with it. Next I think I will read Pat Of Silver Bush– talking about it in this tag made me want to read it again!

    9: Last book you recommended to someone?

    Winnie-The-Pooh by A.A. Milne. It is really sweet, and I like it a lot. It’s a quick read, but I still enjoy it, it’s not just a kids book.

    10: Oldest book you’ve read by publication date?

    The Bible.

    11: Newest book you’ve read by publication date?

    Hm. I think Shadow by Kara Swanson. (Check it out, it is so good!) Here’s the Amazon link.

    12: Favorite author?

    I have two, actually!

    Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables and other fabulous works. I could read her books over and over (I’ve read the entire Anne of Green Gables series through at least 10 times…), and not get tired of them. I notice something new every time!

    C.S. Lewis, who wrote the Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, The Great Divorce, and other famous books. I love the CoN, and I recently read a few of his non-fiction books, like The Screwtape Letters. He is an excellent author!

    13: Buying books or borrowing books?

    Borrowing. I’m usually overwhelmed by the sheer number of books in a bookstore, I have no idea where to look, let alone what to buy. Plus, books are expensive. I live really close to a small library, with a great librarian. I have gotten so many books through that library!

    14: A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?

    I don’t know that I dislike any, but I haven’t read Harry Potter, The Hunger Games or the Lord of the Rings books. And I don’t plan on reading them, except for the Lord of the Rings books.

    15: Bookmarks or dogears?

    Dogears. Bookmarks are always falling out, plus I always lose them, or they slide in-between pages. Dogears give a book character.

    16: A book you can always re-read?

    The Anne Of Green Gables series. See #12.

    17: Can you read while listening to music?

    Not really, I usually get distracted and can’t focus on the plot because I really like the music I listen to!

    18: One POV or multiple?

    Usually just one, or an omniscient POV. Multiple POVs gets really confusing sometimes…

    19: Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days? 

    Usually over several days, just because I don’t have hours to spend reading every day.

    20: Who do you tag? 

    I’m going to leave this as an open tag. If you’re reading this, feel free to do it. Just please link back to me when you do so I can read your answers 😁

    Do you like any of the books on my list? Who is your favorite author? Do you borrow books, or buy them? I’d love to chat with you all!

  • Elegant Pumpkin Dessert || Family Recipes

    Good morning all! This recipe is from my great Aunt Velma. My Aunt Joyce made it recently, and it was really good. It is an easy dessert to prepare, and you probably have all of the ingredients!

    I don’t have a picture, but the dessert is sort of like a cobbler, and is a nice change from the traditional pumpkin pies and pumpkin rolls. Elegant Pumpkin Dessert can be served warm or cold, and you can top it with whipped cream. Refrigerate after serving. Enjoy!

    Elegant Pumpkin Dessert

    1 can pumpkin puree- 1 lb. 13 oz

    1 13 oz. can evaporated milk

    4 eggs, slightly beaten

    1 ¼ c. sugar

    1 tsp. salt

    1 tsp. ginger

    1 tsp. cinnamon

    ½ tsp. ground cloves

    1 c. walnuts, chopped

    1 package yellow pudding cake mix

    1 c. melted butter

    Mix pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, salt, and spices. Pour into 9×13 pan. Sprinkle cake mix over pumpkin mixture. Sprinkle nuts on top.

    Don’t have pumpkin puree? No problem! You can make some using your own pie pumpkins. Just follow the instructions below.

    First, scoop out the seeds and roast the pumpkin on a baking sheet until fork tender. Once cooled, scoop the flesh from the skin and run it through a food processor until it’s smooth. Strain, if necessary, to get the proper consistency. Refrigerate, or freeze for up to a month.

    Do you have any favorite fall desserts? What do you like to do with pumpkins- carve them, bake with them or make decorations with them?

  • The mega-fan is excited AGAIN!!

    My favorite band is for KING & COUNTRY, and recently (like, today!) they announced that they’re starting a huge project. I wonder what it is? Now I’m super excited- I can’t wait to see what they have planned. I don’t think it’s an album, because yes thats a huge deal but not that huge, considering they’ve already done 4+ albums. I’m thinking a movie maybe? A book? Huge special tour? Who knows? And now I can’t wait to see what it is. What do you think? Any predictions?

    Something unique about me: um, I guess that I am the youngest of six kids, and I have 7 nieces and nephews (they’re awesome!) and that is actually kind of unusual, I only know one other person my age who has nieces/nephews, and he only has 3 (4?). I don’t know, it’s pretty awesome being an aunt.

    Questions to be answered:

    Who is your least favorite character in all fiction, and why?

    I don’t think I have one. Although I hate it when the main character in a book is super lame and boring and the side characters are way better- and you never get to hear from the side characters!

    Do you have a garden? If so, what does it look like?

    My family has a garden, and we grow lots of veggies and herbs. I also grew pumpkins this year, and they are super fun!

    What is your MBTI type? Enneagram? Ha, I had to google MTBI, and it it stands for Myer-Briggs Type Indicator. Which is of course, is your personality type. Mine is INFP- Introversion, iNtuition, Feeling, Perceiving. I did a quiz online for my enneagram, (yeah, I’m sure it’s suuper accurate XD) and I got 3, 6, and 9 as the strongest ones. ( Here’s a chart- I couldn’t decide which one I am the most.

    What is your favorite thing to write (i.e. character development, battle scenes, etc.)

    Welp, I’m not a writer, like that anyway. Is blog posts an option? I do occasionally write poetry as well…

    Who is your favorite author?

    My sister, AnnaKate. (Side note- go check out her blog!) If she doesn’t count, then Lucy Maud Montgomery, who wrote the Anne of Green Gables series, as well as the Pat of Silver Bush series. She is an awesome writer, y’all.

    Do you listen to ambiance while writing? Why or why not?

    No, since I mostly just blog. But I do love listening to 90s Christian rock music while I work- think Geoff Moore (evolution), Amy Grant (Heart In Motion) and Stephen Curtis Chapman (Declaration).

    Favorite quote of all time?

    That’s hard. Does the Bible count? In which case, 1 Corinthians 13.

    We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

    1 Corinthians 13:12-13

    Do you eat ranch dressing on pizza?
