Quotes From My Favorite Books to Read on a Rainy Day in Gettysburg!

1. Water for Elephants

“Although there are times I’d give anything to have her back, I’m glad she went first. Losing her was like being cleft down the middle. It was the moment it all ended for me, and I wouldn’t have wanted her to go through that. Being the survivor stinks.”

2. The Last Song

“They promised patience when it was easy to be impatient, candor when it was easier to lie, and in their own ways, each recognized tha fact that real commitment could be proven only through the passage of time.”

3. True Believer

“Women want the fairy tale. Not all women, of course, but most women grow up dreaming about the kind of man who would risk everything for them, even knowing they might get hurt.”

4. The Notebook

“I am nothing special of this I am sure. I am just a common man with common thoughts. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, that has always been enough.”

5. A Walk to Remember

“Every April, when the wind blows from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he’d fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town’s Baptist minister.”

6. Twilight

“About three things I was absolutely positive.  First, Edward was a vampire.  Second, there was a part of him–and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.  And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him”

7. New Moon

“I knew we were both  in mortal danger.  Still, in that instant, I felt well.  Whole.  I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again.  My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin.  It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect-not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place.”

8. Eclipse

“In the dead silence, all the details suddenly fell into place for me with a burst of intuition. Something Edward didn’t want me to know. Something that Jacob wouldn’t have kept from me. Something that had the Cullens and the wolves both in the woods, moving in hazardous proximity to each other….Something I’d been waiting for anyway.  Something I knew would happen again, as much as I might with it never would.   It was never going to end, was it?” 

9. Breaking Dawn

“Don’t be afraid,” I murmured.  We belong together.  I was abruptly overwhelmed by the truth of my own words.  This moment was so perfect, so right, there was no way to doubt it.  His arms wrapped around me, holding me against him…It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire.  Forever, he agreed.”

10. The Lucky One

“She was struck by the simple truth that sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people…”

10 Things To Do On A Rainy Day!

Here’s a list of some fun things to do on a rainy day in Gettysburg!

Number One

Check out souvenir shops in Gettysburg and dress up in Davey Crocket hats and pose with fake muskets while your friend takes a picture.

Number Two

Play Just Dance for Wii, or sit back and watch your friends attempt to dance and laugh at their rendition of MC Hammer’s, “Can’t Touch This.”

Number Three

Take pictures of you and your friends making funny faces and post them on Facebook.

Number Four

Dress up like cops and robbers or any other form or variation of make-believe, you know like when you were a kid.  Maybe try playing a game or two of Hide-n-Seek or whip out some of those old board games like Shoots-n-Ladders.

Number 5

Gather some friends and eat some pizza at Mamma V’s in downtown Gettysburg.  It’s yummy and reasonably priced, you might even want to go downstairs and check out their bar and shoot a few games of pool or play darts.

Number Six

Take a drive up to Hollywood Casino and hit the card tables, although I wouldn’t recommend it…too easy to lose $10 in five minutes 🙂 Stick to the slot machines or the money wheel, I once saw a guy hit really big on that wheel, people usually win every time.

Number Seven

Drive to the closest Cracker Barrel and check-out all of the cool gadgets and old-school candy they have.  I like trying on funny hats and masks during Halloween lol.

Number Eight

Sit outside of the Gettysburg Hotel, preferably on a sunny day, but since we’re talking about things to do on a rainy day…you might want to sit under an umbrella or go inside and check-out their lounge.  Wherever you decide to sit, try their wine and martini selection, it’s delicious!  You’ll meet some pretty interesting out-of-towners if you stay a while, we did!

Number Nine

Pretend you’re singing Lady GaGa into a pool stick microphone while shooting pool at the Flying Bull Saloon in downtown Gettysburg with your BFF.

Number Ten

Sit around and watch the Twilight saga…all three.  Then go to the movies and watch Breaking  Part I 🙂  Yes, I am one of those people who can’t get enough of Twilight lol.
