It's Leap Year!

Happy Leap Year!!

So, the progres continues on my Ravenclaw pal's socks. They are turning out pretty nice. Well, sock #1 is at least. I really, REALLY hope I am able to avoid that dreaded second sock syndrome.

Best work on my best second sock spell...

Alright! So, I've got the sock yarn in, and I'm ready to get rockin' on the socks for my Pal. I know just what I'm going to do. She's in Ravenclaw. I hope she will like them.

As for the stitch markers...I made some for her over the weekend. I actually made 2 sets, and can't decide which I like better. Eenie, meenie, mienee, moe... Better just send both sets.

I'll head out to Hogsmeade for the needles. She's got a favorite, so I'm going to be sure to get her what she likes. I know just the place to get them!

Now...for the goodies. Best stop at Honeyduke's while I'm in Hogsmeade!

Getting Settled...

Wow, what a start of term! I'm finally here, and getting settled in. As promised, Mum took me to Diagon Alley on Sunday to get all my supplies for school. She even let me stop by Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes for some mischief making supplies.

I also got my new wand. Mr. Ollivander told me all about it:

Wood type: olive
Length: 14 inches
Core: Phoenix Feather

get your own wand!

Olive wands tend to choose the witch or wizard who possess above average intelligence, not to mention often an overactive imagination. Olive wands are also a favorite of healers and are especially good not only for healing but also for protective spells. Many believe the bearers of Olive wands to be good at decision making - but this is not necessarily so. The owner of an olive wand may be decisive but that does not mean their decisions are the right ones. On the other side of the coin they may be so busy worrying about what is right that they are unable to ever reach a conclusion.

The Phoenix Feather comes from the tail feathers of a Phoenix, and is especially good with fire or defensive magic, as well as healing magic. This may be due largely to the healing properties Phoenixes have.

Owl Post

My letter from Hogwarts has arrived!! I'm so excited. I was only jus thinking about it, and in swoops a barn owl with a letter bearing the Hogwarts crest.

So, now that I have all the information I need, and Mum has promised to take me to Diagon Alley on Sunday for my supplies, it looks like I'm nearly ready for the new term. I wonder if I can talk her into taking me to Acromantula's Emporium...

Hoping for an Owl...

The new term starts next week, and I'm hoping upon hope to receive an owl with my letter from Hogwarts. Mum told me that if it comes, she will take me to Diagon Alley on Sunday for all my supplies. It's so exciting!

But the anticipation is murder...........
