a quiet nap with my girl this arvo

finishing a good book

listening to a good preach

feeling the Holy Spirit breathe into me as i listen to worship

fresh strawberries



this is my simple pleasure in the midst of the pox



not so simple pleasure – i just got a tweet to say i won a @LOrealParisNZ L’Oréal Paris NZ Gift Pack!  a lovely friend nominated me by tweet earlier in the week #shesworthit – feeling really blest – i love unexpected things like this… they warm my heart and give me joy!  a courier will be arriving sometime in the week with a bag of goodies for me!  how exciting!


listening to:  bless one of my friends who has long term loaned me two of her new cds ; Kim Walker “Here is my Song” and Suzy Wills Yaraei, from Morningstar.  both are live worship albums which i love, love the feel of live music vs studio produced and the crowd adding their voice to the songs…  fantastic worship.  suzy wills yaraei has awesome musicality in her songs – awesome guitar and drums… is almost hard alternative rock, but worship!  i love love love it!  there is a great song on her album called DANCE which kim walker also sings on (they hang together and sing together) and it is awesome and me and evangeline love to dance to it…  you cant help yourself!

watching on tv: still loving heroes, we’ve just had the eclipse part 2 here…  Lost starts tomorrow night… as per previous post…  otherwise there is the smattering of Dora the Explorer and Wall-E for about the 6th time…  the kids love it..

reading:  reading a Brook and Brodie Thoene book, they are christian novelists…  is good.  intersting.  entertaining.  inspiring.  a good fill in book, you know between the Excellent Books….

reading in the bible:  am “proud” of myself (in hopefully a kosher way) as i have been consistantly reading my plan this year…  am in genesis, job, mark, romans and catching up in 1 samuel and jeremiah

achieving: today i went down to church and used their puter (as mine is bust) and made Mainly Music calendars and birthday certificates… for those not in the know Mainly Music is a preschool music/dance programme for kids and mums (and dads too) – is a real community outreach thing – we have about 25 families that come (mum and kids) and 97% of them are not church people!  we sing christian songs and random dance singing movement action type songs…  i had fun making cute calendars.  felt happy :o)  small things….

its been a long time since i’ve done a meme random thing so here we go…

1.   i cant bake but this past week have sucessfully made chocolate chunk muffins, american brownie and gingerbread men.  i feel very proud of myself.

2.  i really love God.  and want to love him more and know him more.

3.  i love my hubby who makes me laugh and sets me free to be me.

4.  my kids are the cutest kids in the world.  my daughter is delightful and my son explodes my heart with joy.

5.  i love seven brides for seven brothers, i love the romance and the singing and the dancing and the colours.

6.  i am an avid reader.  like seriously fast.  which is good.  we love our library.

7.  necklaces are my shoes.  by that i mean some women LOVE shoes and buy shoes galore, well i have 4 pairs of shoes and HEAPS of necklaces and find it hard to walk past a great chunky funky necklace…

8.  i like rock music.  or rockier music.  music with some depth and some grunt.  i hate the corrs.  i love evanescence and linkin park and pillar.  but in saying that i do restrict what i listen to and fill my heart more with worship – yay for bands such as hillsong united and kelanie gloeckler, and jesus culture and cindy ruakere and david crowder band.

9.  i love lost.

10.  i am a high output person.  i can count 5 major things/ministries i am involved in as the main leader at church.

11.   my dad makes the best scones in the world.

12.  i am allergic to cats, dogs, soy, egg, fish, shellfish, airborne pollens, nuts and various other things.   but in that i am trying to believe that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and that his Spirit gives me life and health.

13.  i get mega grossed out by cooking shows when the cut up and pull apart all the meat and fish and things.  yeah, cant watch those things.

14.  i would love to go to New York one day.  who will meet me there?

15.  is the oldest of 3 kids.

16.  has 2 kids.

17.  and a multitude of young people in my past and present that i feel very maternal and protective about and count as extended kids.

18.  i am a messy person by nature but am slowly improving and changing.  i think my messyness was rebellion against my family who are all neat freaks.

19.  i found my first gray hair the other day.  in fact it was stark white.  i was surprized.  i dont mind gray hair, as i dye my hair but it was like wow, that is so radically different colour wise to hte rest of my hair!

20.  i need to stop biting my nails.  i mean how old i am?  really.

21.  today i have solid snot in my nose.  and really that is something to go on teh list and be proud of as i’ve had chronic sinusitus since may 08 and so my snot has been as free flowing as a fount!  so is lovely to not be blowing my nose every 5 minutes and to have hard snot!  yay for my new nasal spray!

22.  i am not sure if i can sing.  despite having been the lead in a church production several years ago and then was on the worship team.  but singing in public – aka for people to hear me (not worship, worship i sing my heart out to my God) scares the snot out of me.

23.   i love to write.  thus i blog.

24.  i love the Word of God.  though there are some very strange bits in it :o)

25.  i am a coke addict.  the cola kind :o)

so there go go – take up the challenge!
