colorful girl

i bring great news from the north:

enjoying myself thoroughly.
taking plenty of pictures.
my favorite colors exist here.
one would not expect so many
from such a bleak, northern city.
but this is far from bleak,
and so very close to vibrant.

i shall return to the south tomorrow.
always to remain a southern belle.

little ill one.

i have been struck with illness.
and am currently on the downhill slope.
[praise the Lord]
these last two days feel almost like a dream
but more like a nightmare.

i was finally able to hold down food today.
chicken noodle soup never tasted so good.

the good news:
at the end of this week
a wonderful thing awaits.

northern girl

next weekend,
i head to the north!

to a place where there are many buildings.
many people.
many things.
and one very special boy.

i shall return with christmas cheer.
and hopefully christmas presents.

christmas trees and curtains

these are the things i am currently in need of:

one christmas tree (any size will do)
someone to come hang my curtains
a car wash
a million dollars

if anyone would like to donate any of these things to me,
i would greatly appreciate it.
[this is my sad attempt at being cheap.]

my mother told me at a very young age that i have expensive taste.
i just can't help it.
it's a disease, really.

[my favorite thing to say, recently.]

something else i've been reflecting on:
there are four starbucks in between my apartment and my work.
endless amounts of cafe mocha.
or a latte, if you prefer.
i wonder: if one morning i stopped at all 4, how long would that take?

another reflection: the goodness of the Lord in my life right now.
