.toques & mitts.toques & mitts.toques & mitts.

so! yesterday the temperature dropped, and dropped, and dropped.
and i complained a little, but solely because it was mittens and toque weather, and i didn't have mine. i did however get to put on my puffy vest and skip along in glee of the crisp air. plus, today i will remember my mittens and toque. the thing with this weather is usually it last for awhile now before the real cold comes. it can get a little warmer again, which i hope for next weekend. C'FORD WHAT!!! that means going to Campbellford to send time with the Anderson's and finally, oh happy day!!, finally meet mark.
however, thom says that he respects mark's opinion above anyone else. i am hoping that means mark will like me. no pressure there!!
also, today i am making a giant banner for the coffee house next week. i wish i had the didge back so i could post pictures on here, but it is in the shop, i broke it. it was sad.
has anyone watched that lost show? ryan bought the dvd of season one, so thom and i watched the first two episodes last night. INTENSE. and very cool.
tonight i am working for terry but i get to work with kitty!! and then tomorrow is the fond farewell of mike. this is very sad.
anyhow, i need to put socks and a sweater on. hurrah! the time of socks is back!


ps. as you can probably tell, the real excitement is back. i knew it wouldn't last long.
pps. rachel, this is for you, that is the way hope can feel sometimes, like it is gone, but really this is what the Bible says about hope. Romans 5:5 'hope does not disappoint us'. don't let your life get stuck in feelings. it is so great that we get to have emotions and feelings. but don't let them dictate the way you live. love to you!

new new new

so. yesterday i spent the day with nathan, we went hunting, swimming, on an adventure, and fishing. how could this all be done in one morning? nathan is three and a half, and since i last spent time with him, his imagination has sky-rocketed. so really the whole time we were just walking through a very wet farmer's field, however there was a very real incident that involved nathan gatting stuck in some mud in the middle of the biggest puddle, and of course i had nothing but shoes on, needless to say they ended the day wet and muddy. also, vivian can now talk, and walk, and almost count. and she has the cutest hair i ever saw on a toddler.

also yesterday, new cells started. this also is very exciting. to see where God will take us throughout the year. ben and mary and michelle are leading it which is a huge excitement in itself.

it feels like i am having one of those days. where i am typing all this, and pretending to be excited, but i don't feel it at all. when truly yesterday i was excited. well. thankfully i have learned that feelings are not fact, so i will not dwell in this for very long.

one other weirdness, my mom's new boyfriend, charles in charge, has decided that he is going to be coming to ontario for christmas this year with my mom and sister. um, yah, ok so you have been seeing each other for 1.5 months! maybe slow down a little.
whatev, not much i can do about it, except perhaps spend as much time as i can with thom's family and as little as i can with mine, i'm sure ros will want to come with me, lord knows how much she loves charles in charge.

i'm off to class so i had better shake a leg.

i am in love with school

sorry thom.

but it is true. so far i am in love and very much looking forward to the love affair that will occur this year between me and my books. ok, so maybe i only have two classes right now, but if that is what it takes for me to be in love with school, then two classes it is.
