Girls are much to clever to fall out of their prams.

Thursday is my favourite day of the week.
Not because tomorrow is Friday.
Thursday just feels good.
smells good.

silly, i guess.
but for me it's true.

I have a big design project to do over the weekend.
That makes me a little sad.
I didn't want to spend my weekend in front on the computer.
Went to the library for the second time this week.
i can stay in there for hours.
Just browsing.
At anything really.

Borrowed a few interesting books on clothing in history, shells [for research]
photography...


Gah, how i love books.
I just don't read enough.
I start books, and then find another, and so, i currently have many unfinished books on my nightstand.

That makes me a little sad too.


[the kids on the bicycles in the picture i edited above, thats me and Robyn, that is.]

i'm just looking for my heart.


[bleh.]

my life long dream has been fulfilled.
perhaps not life-long.
but its been a while...

It's easy! Let's see... You think. You wink. You do a double blink. You close your eyes... and jump!


Birds and leaves and boys in trees,
only just learning to breathe.
Buttons and zippers and lady-like things.
But only until the telephone rings.


HA!

Didst thou ever want to be a pirate?


i had my first swim this Summer today, ah, I love love to swim.

Watching Peter Pan [new version] again tonight reminded me of how much I love that story.
Every line is worth remembering. I should re-read the book by J.M Barrie.



This weekend was good.
I just want a holiday now.

But didn't you just say - I mean - Oh, dear

My new favorite thing: Peter Pan collars. Did one today at college, and desperately want to make a little dress with one of these collars on.







Happy Birthday to Tom.



take a look see at his and Johno's blog.


[I'm eating an abnormal amount of Smarties lately... can't be too good?]

They make me smile.

What kind of a garden do you come from?

writing our names in the air
i miss these days of playfullness


Would you like a little more tea?

I love to look through our family albums, the photos of my parents as youngsters, and my sister and i as kids make me happy.
I'm going to start putting some up.
This is one of my favorite photos of my mom.

Is that all?





Ilsa: I can't fight it anymore. I ran away from you once. I can't do it again. Oh, I don't know what's right any longer. You have to think for both of us. For all of us.
Rick: All right, I will. Here's looking at you, kid.
Ilsa: [smiles] I wish I didn't love you so much.


aah. Casablanca.

Of all the silly nonsense, this is the stupidest tea party I've ever been to in all my life.

feeling icky.
Replenishing my body with vitamin C.
Apparently tomatoes have the highest vitamin C content?
I drink a lot of orange juice.
Perhaps i switch to tomato juice.
Euw.
I hope chicken noodle soup is rich in vitamin C,
as i do consume my fair share.


'nuff said.


I want to reread Roald Dahls books.
Especially Matilda, the twits and James and the giant peach.



i love my bathrobe way too much.

Off with their heads.

There are times in ones life, when all you want is for the floor to open up, swallow you in and throw you back out when things are better.







This is one of those times.

Better read it first, for if one drinks much from a bottle marked "Poison", it's almost certain to disagree with one sooner or later.

My song list for summer:


getting down - the kills


[ REPEAT ]

Clean cup, clean cup. Move down.

ribbons in my hair.
petals in the air.
the neighbor i never knew.

[oh yes.
]
even a little rhyming.




I've been thinking a lot lately about how badly I would like to go back to Disney World for a holiday. That place is amazing. I just wish i could have met the man behind it all.
