Sweet Nothings

Apparently not all men know the phrase "sweet nothings". While searching for an acceptable answer to the question..."what are sweet nothings" for my dear, dear Stephen I found this. So ladies if your man just doesn't understand romance, poetry or sweet nothings you can order this cd to fill the romantic void. Just click on the link to hear a sultry Scottish* accent telling you all the things you long to hear.

*At times may resemble that of Shrek, just try to picture Mel Gibson instead of the big green ogre.

I am...You are...

Thanks Jennifer for the interesting link. What would we do without quizzes to define ourselves?

Someone I used to date got engaged. I've been trying to congratulate this person, but they won't acknowledge my effort. Why is it the people we want to be happy for stomp all over our well wishes? I think I'm going to let the bubbles in my bath wash my disappointment in him away.

Mc What?

Click to watch the McPassion. It's a...sarcastic spin on the marketability of Christianity. Mark B talks about it on his blog. I think Group, or Lifeway should turn this into a Sunday School curriculum...think it would fly?

My friend Chris just joined "The Spirit Radio" today. Look up Chris Atkins to hear some of his great new music. Chris is the kind of guy you (ladies) would want to marry even if he only had one leg...so you know his music has got to be good! This photo is of Chris playing the Crayon Air Drums.

One for you, Two for me!

Tonight I missed home a bit and decided there is no better way to squelch the blues than...

Grammy Culberson's Brown Sugar Drop Cookies.
Here is the recipe for any inquisitive bakers out there. They are very easy to make and only cook for 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to a strong 400.
  • 1 Cup brown sugar (more or less)
  • 1/2 cup soft butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp soda
  • pinch of salt
  • almost a tsp of vanilla (I forgot this tonight and they turned out fine anyway)
  • 2 cups of pastry flour, less if using regular flower. (I used about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (walnuts, coconut, etc)
  • Bake cookies at 400 for 3 minutes, then adjust heat to 375 and back 2 more minutes.
    Make sure not to over cook.
    - Take the cookies out of the oven and leave on pan for 10 more minutes, they will finish cooking.
  • Make sure not to over cook.
I find its one of those recipes that turns out wonderfully different every time. Experiment and let me know how they turn out!
Stephen likes them....

Miss You

After reading Lavlet's blog I decided to put some photos of her and I up here. The past three semesters were great! We became fast friends, for no apparent reason. I guess true friends don't need a reason. Last semester Lavlet lived in Winnipeg too and we would often do random things. Once in the fall I was watching the news and saw the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra playing at the forks. I wanted to go, so I called Lavlet and within 40 minutes we were swinging to the music. At Christmas she moved back home to Cambridge Ontario. They are lucky to have her. The photos are of: Lavlet and I (okay and some other ppl too) at Gillian and Steve's second reception at the WAG. AND Lavlet and I at our farewell Starbucks meeting in December :( Maybe, just maybe if I'm lucky, and cross my fingers hard enough she'll come to Winnipeg for Graduation!

Mad Scientist

Hold on to your hat...two posts in one day!
Many of you know I work with the kids at Soul Sanctuary. This has been both rewarding and stressful at times. In the end it is always worth it...I have a lot of fun, as do the kids and other leaders. Here are some photos from various Soul Kids events. The first is Lauren and I on our Krayola Sunday workday. We are sporting crayon top hats that look just lovely.

This next photo is of the two lovely ladies that really make it all happen (if you asked them, they would deny it, but we all know its true). Thank you so much Jen and Joanne!
Next is myself acting the part of a scientist...the kids seemed to think I was a "mad scientist", perhaps it was the glasses?
And finally, here is a shot of me teaching the kids about the changes that occur when things are held up to the light. My example was that of glow in the dark stars...I compared them to us
and the light to Jesus. When stars are held up to
the light they change...they glow. When we spend
time near the light (Jesus), we are changed too!


I really can't believe it...I'm graduating in about 5 weeks. The realization just hit me recently when I received my grad photos. Transition is always scary, but future possibilities are endless...Now where to begin?
