its time to move on
As much as I enjoyed the discussion on my dancing post , I won't be publishing anymore comments. Nothing personal against anyone, but I'm worried that if I continue replying, I will keep contradicting myself and just make a bigger mess out of things. ;) Sooo . . .thank you all for your input. The subject is now closed, and TLRoS is no longer a depressing blog . . . at least currently. hehe
andré rieu is my newest favorite musician
Right now my ear buds are in, and as I type I'm listening to the gorgeous strains of violin. As much as I love the piano, the violin has to be the worlds most beautiful instrument. And coming from a such a master! - the Godfather theme, Romeo and Juliet, My Heart Will Go On . . . <---click! (no, I do not in any way endorse the movies these songs come from!) but ohhh. Such beautiful music. It just reaches down into the depths of my (
rather dramatic) soul and makes me want to cry. My Groovshark playlist has grown, to say the least. ;)
Any of you recognize the gal between Anna (L) and me (R)? we had the honor of meeting the gorgeous Kami while in OR. She is such a blessing and sweetheart. ♥ you, Kami!
i'm in love with my piano - go figure
This week has pretty much been allll about music. New, exciting music (for me.) Can I mention enough that my most precious treasure, my deepest passion, is my piano? Though I need a new, *working* one VERY badly. (Which you also know. :P ) Anna has been complaining a lot . . .she says I play too much. Too much? Is there such thing? Of course after I get a song down pact she likes me again. j/k Right now I am desperately in love with THIS song, though my arrangement is a bit different, and The Secret Life of Daydreams, from the 2005 P&P soundtrack. You can say I was just a *little* excited to find the sheet music at the library. . .I think I need to pay another visit to the music store.
mr. bingley moved in the house two doors down
Yep. Five girls. A new neighbor. And who might it be? A SINGLE young man. . .its hilarious. And of course we are all having so much fun . . .teasing each other, being goofy-sisterly-sisters that we are. Right now we're trying to figure out a way to get dad to take him some of our homemade chocolate ice cream. :P :P
i left part of my heart at the oregon coast
So wild, rugged, awe inspiring. All and everything I imagined my beloved ocean to be. I've always had a fascination with endless, open sea. . .but have never seen anything beyond Lake Erie and Ontario. So it was incredible to dig my toes into the warm sand, smell the salt-infused air, explore the tide pools, climb the rocks, and run yelling down the beach, the wind blowing through my hair. For a moment I forgot anyone was watching. It was just me, the vast, misty-grey Pacific, and its mighty Creator.
the Lord is GOOD
My life has been a whirlwind of constant activity, a phenomenon that only a couple of years ago seemed unattainable. I watched as people I knew saw things, DID things, were surrounded by commotion and fellowship. Me? I was just the untalented, insecure girl who stared out the window, wishing there was SOMETHING I could do. As a woman my job is in the home. But what about social activities? Purpose? He was making me wait. . .He knew the bigger, perfect picture. One thing I've always struggled with in my walk is trust. Oh, I have no problem trusting Michaela - its part of the sinful human nature. Even now, when I see so many things changed in my life, I have to constantly remember that my Lord Jesus is in control. Help me Lord to trust in You, to become the woman of God that I strive to be! Thank you for putting up with my nonsensical ways . . .and most importantly, for faithful parents to lead me along Your Path.
no matter how hard i try. . .i *always* ramble
But hey, I can't help it. I LOVE to talk. . .and it comes out in my blog posts. Is this a bad thing? ;) Nah!
a current few of my favorite things
Random, spur of the moment tea parties with my sisters.
chilled hot chocolate.
watching an ocean of rippling clouds from an airplane window.
finding treasures at hole-in-the-wall vintage shops.
breathing life into a much worked on piano piece.
talking - and singing, though I'm not at all good.
peonies. . . because they are so much more beautiful then roses.
mini butter and jelly sandwiches.
creating new, dramatic plots in the life of enè Boudreaux. . .
We were sooo tired. Which is why I look all haggard-out. . .a first-ever flight and major jet lag will do that to someone. :P Anyhow. In the above R pic we were talking about hair. . .you know, girl conversation . . . and THAT was the result. ;)
i'm thinking of changing my blog name
What think ye? Anna is constantly changing hers . . . and while I'm rather attached to The Last Rose of Summer, maybe it sounds depressing? I'm sure you've noticed my new header. ;) TLRoS isn't quite fitting anymore. How about something The Shamrock and the Rose to keep with the Celtic-ish feel?
Again, note that I do not in any way endorse the movies I mentioned above. o.O In fact, my family very rarely watches movies. . .and when we do, they are NEVER *those* kind. Also, the whole Mr. Bingley thing is all in good fun. ;) You have to admit, the coincidence is pretty amusing. . .
