So I've Been Busy

Okay, so I haven't written in a while.  I'm here, but oh soooo busy as of late and you'd think that being busy would give me something to write about and to share.  But alas, that's not the case!  I've been too busy to think straight at the end of the day and way to busy to stop and take photos to remind myself of what it is I have been busy doing!

So I'll try to piece together what's been going on for the last week (or so).  Firstly my sister's wedding is TOMORROW!  Okay yeah, ummm obviously busy there. I've been cutting snowflakes out of paper for about a week now.  I need to write my speech tonight and set up the tables and decorations at my sister's house. Oh and they are calling for a big snow storm today....ah February in Ontario....always interesting! :p

  What else....oh my husband and I actually went on a real date last Friday, a double date at that! Ha!  We have these great friends, the one's who made commitments to the Lord this past year, and though we have been friends along time, we had never gone out, alone, together; you know, sans children!  So we did and we stayed local which was nice.  Took in a local restaurant and then a musical at our local Arts Centre.  Our friend was preforming in the musical, she was fantastic!!  I've talked about how talented she is at least once before here.  So we enjoyed her show, "Into the Woods" and even had just enough time to sneak in an after show coffee before relieving the babysitters.

The never ending renos continue on our home.  I learned....attempted to wallpaper on the weekend...hmmm, let's just say it is a good thing I started with closets!  I think it's a good medium, tricky, but with time I should get the hang of it! (Pun, may or may not be intended!)  Not that I plan on wallpapering my entire house, or even an entire room for that matter but I was intimidated by it and I wanted to learn.  So now I have a new home reno skill under my belt and some, decently, wallpapered closets in my house!

We have been in the snow and I have been in the studio. There had been tons of snow, then it melted and then it snowed again. They say that February is a dull month, but really it's quite unpredictable and that ain't dull!


The kids love the idea of playing in the snow but once I get them all dressed and we get out there they don't leave the path!  Olivia keeps talking about making snow angels but once we get out there she hates, and I mean hates, the idea of walking on the snow or through it.  So, like I said, we stick to the path.  Though I force them to stay out at least half an hour because seriously, if it's going to take me fifteen minutes to dress them, they better get at least double that time outside!

 As for the studio I'm working on some character development for a children's book that a friend of mine is writing.  I think God's given her such a great story idea so I am SUPER excited to see where He will lead us in this.  So pray for His wisdom and guidance for us!  And I`ll reveal more as it comes along!  Maybe even some sneak peeks!?!?

And through all this I have managed to take a few photos of colour for my (not forgotten) Spectrum of Light series.  I've been busy and it's been much too cold to go out and take photos, or at least that's my excuse!  But I had said I would do it, especially this time of year when the world (well around here anyways) seems so void of colour.

I couldn't make her button thing work.

So, that should bring you all up to speed.  It's gonna be a busy weekend, wedding, church and an after church potluck/family get together, then the work week again.  But things are good, challenging, oh my and how so very challenging some days, but still good!  The days are flying by and I am anxious and nervous to see what Spring will bring along.  But for now I shall take it one day at a time and you know, maybe even take a lesson from the cat. 

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.  Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God in an everlasting rock. 
Isaiah 26:3-4



  1. Busy! I'm really excited about your children's book project!! And as usual, your photos are gorgeous. :)

  2. LOVE the spectrum of light photos, especially. This is what you can write when you're not really trying?! WOW. Good luck with the wallpapering. I have decided I will NEVER wallpaper again. It's not the hanging that gets me. I hate the scraping and removing when I change my mind. I love how you see God in all you do. I miss that. I haven't seen Him for quite a while now. I'll look again.

  3. Good to hear from you...

    Hope the wedding goes well tomorrow and I sure do love your Color photos - as usual.

    Have a blessed day!

  4. Hoorah for your sis getting married!! Yay! Aw, I love weddings :D I have three to go to this summer and I'm counting down the days. When *someone* (lol) finally gets around to marrying me, it's going to be such a daisy and cupcake-strewn event, haha!

    Gorgeous photos as always, I just love your Spectrum series <3


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
