I have been listening to Lecrae's Rehab, and I keep going to make a big post raving about how good this album is -- and maybe I still will. But for now, let me just say that it's excellent. I've been ridiculously reticent to confess that I actually like hip hop and rap, but this guy's music is forcing me out of the closet. So good. So Scripture-soaked. So worshipful. I'm loving it.
I have been wearing tights and boots and cardigans and dangly earrings.
I am thankful for my four-week-old niece's sudden discovery that she can smile -- and how. Seriously, what a cute little imp! Her cheeks puff out and her eyes turn into these adorable little half-moons. SO CUTE.
I am pondering how best to arrange maximum stuff in minimum space.
I am reading Oh Me of Little Faith by Jason Boyett. In word: excellent. I'm only part way through, but I could have written the personal anecdotes myself. I love how the author is very real about his doubts and overthinkyness in regards to Christianity. He's honest, but he doesn't kill hope. It's doubt without the despair, candour with faithfulness, always pointing back to the truth. We need more books like this.
I am creating letters. Actually, I'm writing letters, but it's been so long since I last sat down to write mail, on actual paper, by hand, that it feels akin to a work of artistic creation. (I'm odd).
I am looking forward to hanging out with my down-south niece and nephew next week. I hate leaving home, but I like being with them :). There will be crafts and cooking and reading and cold toes, I am sure.
A picture-thought I'm sharing is nothing special to look at, but it's from last weekend's local folk festival. A printmaker had set up a little workshop which was open to anybody who wanted to go and make prints of leaves and feathers. Favourite.

Laura Elizabeth -- I'm so happy you'll be playing along! Your theme's awesome (I think I already said that). Starting this weekend -- how does that sound?
Caitlin -- indeed! :D
Samantha R -- I'm so excited we're doing this together!
Asea -- I'm anti-chemicals so I'm thinking henna. I really need to do some research! Aw, I would love to hit the op shops with you. We'd have so much fun :).
Rebecca -- ooh, I would love someone to do the dye job for me! Although I'm shy about my hair, one of the main reasons I end up doing everything to it myself (that, and saving the money otherwise spent on hairdressers).
