The Smells of Houses and Freezing Cold Pools

   Greetings!

    I just got back from a two day trip and I walked into my house, well, ran, because I had to use the bathroom so badly. But after than, I took a deep breath in and the smell that only my house has flooded my senses. And it’s kinda weird, I missed that smell. I missed the musty concrete smell and the dog hair all over the front step.

        And it was only two and a half days! When I go back to my grandparents house, I’m gonna be like “Your house smells amazing!!” and I might get some weird looks, but it’s true. I also love the smell of my aunt’s house. Houses’ smells are like snowflakes, no two are alike. They’re all different mixtures that come with different memories.

        Anyway, that was an odd two paragraphs, but hopefully you see what I mean… In other news, some important things that have happened lately…

-I have joined a new author blog! THE BLOG! (dun, dun, DUN!) There’s like, maybe 10 writers on there. They’re all pretty awesome and I’m excited to be working with them!

-I have finished the first chapter of Realms Unseen , well, the second drafted first chapter.

-I went swimming in a freezing cold pool yesterday, and stayed in for at least thirty minutes.

   Yes, I had to add the pool one in there, because that was extremely important! Grand accomplishment, I must say so myself…

That’s about it! Keep on keeping on.

  1. I totally know what you mean about familiar scents – they can be quite comforting (or nauseating, depending on the scent and its source, lol). I cannot stand freezing cold pools, so I am impressed that you stayed in for 30 minutes! Love you! (Aunt Jules)

  2. Boy, you are very VERY brave to jump in a freezing cold pool. (It's not like you're braver than me though, because I would jump in a freezing cold pool anytime and probably stay there longer than you did, but still… that takes some bravery) And I agree with you that houses always have a familiar smell about them (although my house smells like peanut butter and pancakes right now, since I just finished breakfast). And the smell of a house can change too. So, in a nutshell (though I am unable to actually fit my words into a nutshell, so I have no idea why people say that), I agree with your philosophy.
