More homework. The entire school has been assigned a report on Fleur Delacour. I only know the common knowledge stuff about her so far, not nearly enough for a report. I'm sitting here just staring at my blank roll of parchment.....

Looks like I'll be spending some time in the library this week!

My Awesome Prize!

I received a parcel today! An enormous tawny owl swept into the great hall during breakfast and dropped a package right on top of my scrambled eggs. My housemates were all very curious what it could be so I opened it right away. What was it? Why, my House Quiz Prize of course! I had almost forgotten that it was on its way. What a pleasant surprise!

Look what I got! An entire kit to make a beautiful lacey scarf! It includes the yarn (sparkly pinks and purples) needles (knit picks, my fave) and pattern. Yay!

Hogsmeade Weekend

I went on my first trip to Hogsmeade this weekend! It was even cooler than I expected! I was a little worried at first because I accidentally slep in on Saturday morning and when I woke up all the Gryffindor's were already gone. I almost stayed at school but then I decided to go by myself. Gryffindors are supposed to be brave, right? Well, I'm really glad I went because I had a fantastic time. My favorite shops were definately Honeydukes and Zonko's. I stocked up with enough candy to last me a month! Oh, and don't tell the headmistress but I also bought the biggest bag of dungbombs I've ever seen.... I'm planning on releasing a bunch during Divination class (oh, how I hate that stupid class) Maybe I'll save a few for History of Magic as well (although I do catch up on my sleep in that class).
