Daybook #4

Outside my window, it's been alternately grey and sunshiny all week, switching from cool and breezy to muggy and humid. Spring is still sorting itself out.

I have been listening to Ben Rector, a new favourite Christian artist whose lovely voice, thoughtful lyrics, and mix of pop rock and folk make for easy listening. Hank, Rector's song for his baby nephew, might make you cry. Well, it made me cry.

I have been wearing a skirt that my sister made from vintage furnishing fabrics. It's so comfy and I love the detail in the pleated front. She's a clever cookie.

I am thankful that I've been able to spend almost two weeks with my Mum and littlest brother, even though the time has gone too swiftly and we've all been unwell.

I am pondering the surprising richness of my friendships with people I've come to know online. There might be a post in this somewhere.

I am reading -- well, actually I just finished -- Gregor the Overlander, an enchanting children's fantasy about a small boy who falls into a mysterious world underneath New York City. It was delicious.

I am thinking about the excellence that is the uni break.

I am creating notes for a story that is simmering on low heat.

I am hoping and praying for the people I care about the most.

One of my favourite things is taking pictures on my new camera, Clive Staples. It still makes me excited.

A picture thought I'm sharing is from the wedding day of my cousin-and-twin, Fran, to her favourite man, Josh. Mum, Lauren, Tain, and I made a whirlwind trip interstate and back (in one day) to see Fran and Josh make their mutual appreciation of each other church-official. It was truly lovely.

Samantha R -- that recipe sounds amazing! Did the cookies turn out delightful? Yes, if you come to visit me I will feed you sushi and take you to see Despicable Me :).

Caitlin -- stick-togetherness is indeed excellent!

Lizzie B -- YAY! I loved catching up with you! Still resizing photos so some more will be up on facebook soon :).

Staish -- I've missed you this week! Any spaces in your schedule next week?


  1. I stole this idea from you in a brave attempt to try to get back into blogging.:-P

    I saw "Gregor the Overlander" at the library. Maybe I should read it while I wait to read "Mockingjay". Also, I want to see this skirt! Lauren is indeed clever!

  2. I would love to see you...How would you feel about a combo visit/we're-moving-let's-get-into-box-packing extravangaza?

  3. I like your description of a marriage! :D

  4. Loverly to hear from you! :)

    The cookies turned out well. I didn't put the chocolate on top as I didn't have time (got sidetracked with painting a floor...)
    I shall send you the recipe by email someday. When I DO have time! ;)

    I want to see a pic of the skirt!

    "I am pondering the surprising richness of my friendships with people I've come to know online. There might be a post in this somewhere."

    I have been pondering that too. I know so many people online and so many I've never met and yet we're close in a special way.

    Cute wedding pic; glad it all went well!
