I love it. I rarely see it but this year I got to bask in it, like a white, fluffy blanket.

one fine day

One Friday night, I went for a lovely, star-lit walk with my wonderful boy, and on that same night, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. My answer? "Of course!"

My Growing Family

Patricia and Nathan!
Yes...I am an auntie and yes, I do have a nephew.
Nathan Elliot Boldt. I'm excited to play basketball and freeze mini donuts with him.
one day.

fridge magnets

Mother never used honey in juice, but was drunk as diamonds and lovely as pink.

things that are tedious

wedding showers for other people trying to keep your keyboard free of crumbs
every day at work sweeping a white kitchen floor counting pennies pulling apart split ends dusting vents peeling garlic

The monologues

mono 1. (disease) - actually it's a virus, and it is basically the training torment before anything else drastic comes in my life, which means anything that can top this has to be pregnancy. Who would expect mono? Especially at a time like this where choir tour, the homecoming of my favourite sister and the departure of my beloved friends are all taking place. Sadly, California will have to wait to bear the presence of Caitlin Ruth Meller. It wouldn't be so bad if I had the energy to accomplish tasks, such as walking up stairs, but even that leaves me heaving and gasping for air. I guess I'll have to broaden my mind and read books by Charles Keating, or about the emptiness of Mennonitism. Mennonitism? Is that a word? Of course I can always fill my time by looking at wedding magazines, NOT because I buy them but because there always seems to be an abundance of them around our house...thanks to my mother's undying fetish. (Secretly we all love it and wish we had our own little obsession and the money to fulfill it.) No, I think I will tan today. I'm white as a softball and I have to keep up with my Californian boy. My mother found two ticks on her today, that made me nervous and want to jump in the tub. Perhaps I'll do that now, I don't want to have a fit.

High, running wild among all the stars above;
sometimes it's hard to believe you are here with me
