Note: During the week, Shari painted my bathroom and now it has butterflies and flowers! It makes me feel like I am in nature! Because of that, I say to Shari, “Oh Shari thank you so much! It makes me feel safe and calm right now because it looks beautiful!”

Saturday, I went horseback riding. I was like a cowgirl because it was an intense course! After that my dad and I went to Home Depot and we bought towel racks for my shiny bathroom! The store was like a wonderland or a big toy store for the house!    

Sunday, with Friendship Circle we went to San Elijo Lagoon for a hike. The hike was amazing because in nature you see hawks, ducks, other birds, butterflies, and my favorite, lots and lots of trees!!!

My favorite part of the weekend was the Lagoon because I adore lagoons. I also love the painting in my bathroom, because it is so pretty! My least favorite was that I did not go swimming!

Four Day Weekend of September 1, 2017

My four day weekend was great!

Friday I went to school. My teacher was Marianne. In the afternoon we played games so our group Elizabeth, Jaydon, and I played go fish and I won!

Saturday, I went horseback riding on Hollywood. I rode on a trail ride and it was so fun because Shannon rode with me. At 1 pm my dad and I went swimming at Rick and Lisa’s house. I hated it so much because I haven’t been swimming for a long time and it was so freezing my eyes were teary. It was so bad! In fact, when I went into the water, IT FELT TOO ICEY!  But, my dad liked it!

Sunday, my Dad was my nurse. We went to Shooting Stars in Pacific Beach. It was so fun because my buddy Tal was so nice like an angel!

In the afternoon I had dance with Elle. We did ballet, stretching and Lyrical, which is when we danced to the words of a song.

After that  my dad and I, watched an amazing movie called Trolls. The message in it says, “Happiness is inside everyone, even if you don’t know where or how to find it, and you shouldn’t have to change to get someone to like you.” I liked the movie because it had the song Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake. Trust me it’s a good movie!

Monday, I went to Legoland. During one part of the Coast Cruise ride the captain said “While we are under the Lionscape Bridge for the second time I want to hear you yell with a giant lion roar on 3 ready? 1 2 3..” Once everyone roared he said, “That’s terrifying!”

That night we ate at Souplantation, which is my favorite restaurant because they had so much food!

My favorite part of the weekend was that movie Trolls because it was real nice! My least favorite was swimming. It was terrible! Overall, I had a awesome weekend! Next weekend, I want to either go golfing or fishing because it will be so fantastic!

My weekend was awesome! Some of the things I did were to go to Escondido, see the TV special The Wiz, go horseback riding, go to grandma’s house, go to the Natural History Museum, see a lot of apples. and go Bowling.

On Friday, we took the 308 bus to Escondido. We ate at Jamba Juice. It was fun. Then we went shopping at Target and Arlie bought surprise gifts for Hanukah for me. Then I came home and saw the Wiz live. OMG it was based on the Wizard of Oz, but in a modern way. Saturday, I went horseback riding on Scout and I thought, where is Mark my other horse? I remembered he died. He was too old and weak. Isn’t that sad? Yeah. So after that, my Dad called Tyson and we didn’t have to go to the Time Warner Cable office in Miramar. Phew! Then I went to my grandma’s house and saw that they changed the location of the piano. I forgot uncle Robert will buy a new puppy, named Riley on Sunday. Also Cece, my night nurse, painted my nails so my fingernails are green and my toes are red for Christmas.

Sunday, I went to the Natural History Museum and there was a big tree with lights that was so pretty.

Weekend of April 24, 2015

My weekend was entertaining. It was jam-packed with breathtaking things such as meeting my new relatives, horseback riding, and going to the friendship circle walk.

On Friday, I met my new cousin Steven, his mom and his dad who are my grandfather George’s mom’s grandson from Russia. Cool! They all came for dinner. They were amiable.

Saturday I woke up, l looked outside and it was dreary. It rained intermittently all day! I went horseback riding on a nag and then I had some adversity. I was so sick my stomach was squeezing and I had a bad day. It was not subtle. I slept and stayed home. Not fun!! But I played a horse game with my dad and I won!

P1020672

Sunday, Elizabeth, my dad and I went to the friendship walk and there was not a lot of things to do or see because I was expecting a circus like last year but, there was a snare drum player.

P1020680

P1020678

The walk was so so tiring an I felt haggard, but I did have fun.

After the walk, there was a festival for Israel independence day and OMG, there was folk dancing. Traditionally, they did circles and a line dance. They had a band and I danced a lot. It was weird that there was no belly button circus, they usually have one at the festival. Acts are done by kids who are meticulous!

P1020684

My favorite part of the weekend was the festival because, 1: there was a fun drummer boy and 2: it was amazing. My least favorite part was when I didn’t feel good on Saturday because it was terrible. Overall, my weekend was all right. Next weekend, I expect the weather to be pristine and I will go to the a night to remember prom. I also want to go to the children’s pool in La Jolla or go visit my mom’s grave. I want to do one of these things because it will be so nice!

My weekend was awesome! It was filled with amazing things like celebrating my uncle Robert’s and my brother Matthew’s birthday, going horseback riding, seeing cousin Carole, playing baseball, and going to a music festival.

On Friday, cousin Carole and my dad came home and I played my Sonatina by Chemeni on the piano. Then Carole played piano for a little while which was fun.

After that, the rest of our guests came, and we had Shabbat; you know the prayers… for the wine. Baruch atah adonai, eloheinu melech hoalam, borai prei hagofen, amen… for the bread. Hamotzi lechem min haaretz, we give thanks to God for bread, our voices join in song together, as our prayer is humbly said, Baruch atah adonai, eloheinu melech hoalam, homotzi lechem min haaretz, amen… Finally, for luck, Shabbat shalom [the song]. It evoked feelings of thankfulness in me. After dinner… “Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Robert and Matthew, happy birthday to you.”

On Saturday, I woke up disheveled and got dressed and I went horseback riding. Baseball was great! Why? I had a new buddy named, I think its Shaman and she was super nice! Aw! I saw some college boys and I wanted them to be buddies with me and they did. They were so nice that I thought I will marry them! I played really well.

Then, Cousin Carole, my dad and I went to this restaurant called Naked Café. Funny/weird name for a café right? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyways, then we dropped Carole off by the train station. She went to Orange County.

Sunday, Elizabeth and I drove to Shooting Stars [Friendship Circle teen girls club], and we decorated a poster for the friendship circle walk. I made a bouquet of flowers for the performance that we will do in 2 Sundays. Guess what song we will do? Ok I will divulge it to you… Taylor Swift’s Shake it off. Then my dad and I went to a music festival at our temple. It was so fun and erratic, because there were different people and things to do. My friend Craig was performing the Camp Simcha Greatest songs. Basically, these are the same songs that are played at a camp I always attend in the summer. There are skits and songs and it’s always fun. Contrary to what you might think, the camp is 5 days long, but I only go for 1 day. We stayed for 4 hours at the festival!!!!

There was nothing to aggravate me, and no one was stingy. I didn’t feel distraught, only happy, so I can say my prevalent feeling was joy and my weekend was wonderful!! Next weekend I will go on the friendship circle 5k walk and there will be a snare drum player leading us.

Weekend of September 19, 2014

My weekend was so fun. It was filled with awesome things like going horseback riding, playing baseball, and helping the homeless people.

On Friday, I went home and relaxed. Matthew, my brother stopped by.

Saturday, I went horseback riding on Mark and I practiced doing a figure eight. It was so cool! Then Jonah, my other rider and I played a game called Red light Green light and I was straight on the line. After that, I came home and got ready for baseball. Omg, I want to tell you something exciting! You see, I got a HOMERUN because I was first and last in the lineup. It sure seemed windy. Oh then I was asking my dad if I had a friend coming again and again and again. So finally my dad got a text, Jaydon will come at 2, BUT when he called my dad at home, he said, “How about in 5 minutes, I will come.” My dad suggested, “How about in 10 minutes?” He agreed and he came so I played the March by Bach on the piano, which he knew because he just heard it at his last concert. Then he played a piece by Diablerie. Then we played a duet which was a blues song. Then, I told him that I have a new game for my DS so he tried it and he loved it. Later, his mom came with a cold. That was on Saturday.

Sunday, I woke up and I not only watched the Lawrence Welk show, but I also saw Americas Got Talent, and there was this 12 year old kid singing with Jennifer Hudson and when Nick Cannon, the host, gave the results he told everyone, “America has voted, the act finishing in 5th place and leaving the competition is… I thought, “Please don’t be Quinines Johnston”… Quinines Johnston!” I thought what! He’s out? Oh no. Anyways then Delanee, my nurse, and I went to this place called Jewish Community Service because the friendship circle helped pass down food for the poor people. So it was an assembly line and teens love that because it is so fun. First, I put in soup cans into bags to pass to another boy who then passed down to etc.. We did this until the last person ties a knot to put in these boxes. So I passed down, milk, piece of gilt, tomato soups, and afterwards I got a certificate and an invite for sukkah on October 11, 2014. Also everyone got a group picture for fun. Then, I got home and I decided to go in my spa. I got in and it was 98 degrees. It was so nice, I thought, “What a lovely day it is so far!” After that, my friend, Savi came and I told her that I had no dance class. Well Savi had tap class, but she didn’t learn a tap dance. Luckily, she danced tap, ballet, hip hop, jazz and contemporary for me. After my friend left, I practiced my music, March by Bach on the piano and on drums I played Taste like Chicken, Respect, and the famous Georgia On My Mind. I also did my drum fills. After that we finished Americas Got Talent, the finale and when Acro Army was out I was so sad. They are a group of kids who do acrobatics. But luckily… the magician won the $1,000,000 prize and the headline in Las Vegas. Cool!!!!!!!!!

My favorite part of the weekend was when I watched Americas Got Talent, and when I helped the friendship circle give food for the homeless because I thought it was amazing! My least favorite part was when that boy didn’t stay in the competition in order to win because we thought he could win the whole thing! But, America decided to not vote for him but we did. Also, this week, I will be so sad because of him. Overall, my weekend was awesome. Next weekend, I want to either go on the SEAL bus, or see Ratatouille. I want to do one of these things because it will be so tremendous! Also, on Friday my friend Natalie will come over. The following weekend, I want to either meet Nick Cannon or go to SeaWorld. I want to do because it will be super.
