lies lies lies

yes. It is true.
I am full of them.
one month I say I wil post once a month, and four months later... LIES! BAH!

I would like to formally apologize, as I have been officially obsessed with the "MySpace" phenom for a little while now, causing me to drift from my blog-world duties...

Not that there is much to update you on in my little life! not really!
Adrian and I are house hunting... we plod along on this journey of jumping markets, cheap flips, and intense bidding wars... BOO!!! it's frustrating. But the good thing is that we are so content in our apartment. It serves us perfectly well in the meantime... so that is a relief! Woo hoo!!

Easter was yesterday - and a busy morning it was!
that's the one thing about working at church. I will rarely EVER get churc calendar holidays off... they are actually 3 times as busy as a regular weekend for me... and Good Friday and Easter were no exception. We had a pretty killer time of it all though. I directed a worship choir for Easter morning, and we ROCKED THE HOUSE!!! hehe. It was a lot of fun.
"He is Risen indeed!!"

So now i feel like I have to recuperate from the mayhem of the past weekend.
Sigh. Breathe.

Oh! Oh! Oh!
Adrian and I finally got NEW PHONES!!! A luxury we are so thrilled about.. on sale at London Drugs folks! Regular 80 smacks... now only 50!!! And it's a dual cordless handset, super fly, and super awesome, and now I can actually control the volume, AND it wont spasmadically die on me! YAHHH!!!! I am pretty pumped about them. Panasonic no less! Adrian told me they are supposed to be the better brand of phone... so here's hoping they last us FOREVER!!! hehe.

what else what else what else...
OH! My birthday was recent.
March 31st - and I had a LOVELY day - a practice in the morning, but then a play in the afternoon followed by Thai food (YUM YUM!!) and a very small gathering at our apartment, where we listened to my new Feist CD (a gift! Thank you!) and chatted, and had coffee, and this delightful fruit amazing-ness that Adrian made. GOOD JOB ADRIAN! All in all, it was a lovely day.

I am realizing more and more, that as much as I am an extrovert, I usually prefer a quiet, intimate crowd, to a huge, loud one... crazy hm? Don't I know it! I used to be all about the social mayhem... but I am nearly a "homebody" entertainer... part of it might be affording large crowds (hehe) - but I think I just love being at home, having some coffee, and lighting some of the MANY candles I am obsessed with having... *sigh*... PERFECTION!

anyhow... I cannot write much longer, as my day needs to START ALREADY! and there has been TOO MUCH of this on the internet business! But hello to my family of bloggers... I am sorry that I have been a real turd on the blog front. Now that I have written this blog I think to myself, "myspace PIESPACE!"
PIE! I LOVE IT!!! (dont! don't touch the pie Maria!)
mmmmm a la mode...

Love and Cheers!!!!

once a month...?

Yes, it is true.
I have decided that I have to post at LEAST once a month. It is only fair.
My sincerest apologies to those of you who have wondered if something serious had befallen me.
No. This is not the case.
I am alive, quite well (for the most part, clearly as most humans are prone to, I have had the occasional bad day, slight hissy fit, and spouts of annoyance within the last month) and still attempting to live a goooood life...
what that means - I continue to PURSUE!!!!!

But just remember... I'm alive.

short update:

WORK - hard but learning a lot lately
LOVE - most excellent, in a similar fashion - no walk in the park, but learning a lot, and loving the process. it helps my husband is so pretty...hehe.
MUSIC - I have written TWO SONGS (one not fully completed, but sorta...) in the last month... which is more than I can often say for myself. hehe. So that is really exciting for me. I am thinking that I have found a vocal groove for myself, in an R&B kinda style... I loooove singin' soul... crankin' it out - I feel SO comfortable there vocally. So that, right now, is what I am looking into producing, when I write a song. Just goin' with it... YAH! hehe.

kay. bedtime is close (actually past) in its approach. So I find the need to leave most pertinent.
the blessing of a Good God on you! yay!

a table, a table...

So, we have a table! A new kitchen table!
This was brought to life last week Tuesday (I believe December 26th) When Adrian drove over to a friend of ours, and snagged this little beauty for FREE (because I know ridiculously kind, and generous people...) We are still counting our blessings!
My mom (hey momma!) has requested a viewing of the table, and I thought to myself, "Why not let the WHOLE WORLD see our new gorgeous table! huh!?!?!?!"
So here it is!
Our pretty table - and on top of the table, is my new coffee press, that I got for Christmas! I am SPOILED!!! Adrian bought it for me, and as I write this, I am drinking a cup of coffee out of that very coffee press! And it is GOOOD!!!!
I am putting TWO pictures of the table on here... for good measure - so you can see both lovely sides... he he...
And mom - isn't it pretty!?!?!

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Last night it snowed like crazy, and no one can get to church this morning! Woah! Can you even believe it? Adrian got up, looked outside, and said, (In a manly voice) - "It's a winter wonderland!"
So that is this morning so far!
And later today... DA NAH NAH...
We get to have our NEW YEARS EVE PARTY!!!!! Lots of food, and fun with friends... my favourite! yahoo!

anyhow - this needs to come to a close, cuz I have to shower, and then we have some errands to run if we can get out of our little garage... (good luck to us!)
So we'll talk to you all... later!
BAH! Do you know what I just realized? I have started referring to myself as "We"!!! I am seriously MARRIED NOW!!!!!!!!
moi ha ha.

If anyone else in Winnipeg didn't make it to church this morning - you better be readin' those bibles!!!! he he...
I'll follow my own advice.

much love!
