To Bring You Up to Date....

... because it has been 2 weeks since I posted anything.

My life lately... in a nutshell.

• Practicing music. Currently working on Pirates of the Caribbean theme song - we'll see if I can have it perfected by the end of summer, Star Wars Love Theme for a wedding, an arrangement of For the Beauty of the Earth with my Dad on the violin, and a bunch of other classical pieces. Singing I'm doing songs in German (which isn't a very pretty language to sing in), Latin and English, and hopefully I can start French soon!!

• Studying the IPA. It's really really neat!! But I think my head is about to explode with all the memorizing! :) Seriously though, I'm realllllly enjoying it! And hopefully it will be helpful when I sing in other languages!

• Weddings. Helping out at weddings and planning for weddings. Seems like the marrying year in my circle of friends! To quote An Old-Fashioned Girl: "Occasionally a matrimonial epidemic appears, especially toward spring, devastating society, thinning the ranks of bachelordom, and leaving mothers lamenting for their fairest daughters."

•Puppy. Need I say more?

Chivery right before his haircut.

• Get-togethers with good friends! It's summer, so we are taking advantage of people being off school and enjoying spending time together!

• Just watched my first "Horatio Hornblower" (yes, that's right. I have never seen it before). While naval war isn't exactly my favorite type of movie, I really can't resist 12 hours of Ioan Gruffudd. *winks*

• Singing in a trio with Emily and Kathryn! I have soooo missed doing this since Emily went to college, but I think we might be getting back into it! YAY!

Sisters! I love these people!!

• Trying to decide what the next school year will bring as a high-school graduate................

So that's pretty much it! And it keeps me hopping all the time - it's tiring at times, but I love it, and God always gives me strength to make it through the day! :)

I promise I'll post about sewing soon! Just out of curiosity, do you like these random posts about things other than sewing, or should I just stick with the sewing stuff? Because I DO have a life outside of sewing... I'm just not sure if my readers want to know about it! :)

Alright, I'm off to get a good nights rest before a busy day tomorrow!! Whatever you do, don't forget to smile! (Tara's corny advice for the night)


  1. I'm all for posts about anything and everything!! I like you, ergo, I like pictures of your life. =)

  2. Love the photobooth pic - and your puppy is sooo adorable! Oh!

    The Pirates of the Caribbean theme is such a fun song to play - I'm working on it too:) Would love to see a video when you have it finished!

    And yes, I for one love random-life blog posts... go for it, girlie!

    P.S. I think I must watch "Horatio Hornblower" now... 12 hours of Ioan Gruffudd would doubtless be most beneficial. *grin*

  3. Of course we like hearing about your life outside of sewing! :) Thanks for the update . . . and the pics. . . and the advice. ;)

  4. I like random posts. =) Random post are fun. Yeah, I use the word random a lot. Do I sound random? Don’t worry, I’m not always like this, I’m just in a random mood.

  5. 1. What instrument do you play? I love playing the POTC theme on the piano! SO fun!

    2. Is your dog named 'Chivery' after the Dickens character?? I LOVE Little Dorrit!

    3. I agree about Ioan Gruffud. :D

    Keep posting! I love reading your blog!!

  6. Laurelyn - I like you too.

    Kellie - Hmmm... video. Well, we'll see about that! *winks* Oh yes - most beneficial indeed.

    Moriah - Glad I'm not boring anyone with my everyday life! :) Thanks for the comment! Love you!

    Aidyl Ewoh - Random-ness is good. :)

    Little Lady - I play piano and I sing, and sometimes I'll play a little flute and panflute and mandolin and pennywhistle. But mostly piano and voice. :) Isn't it great!?! I play it a ton that my family is probably sick of hearing it! :)
    Yes, my puppy is named after John Chivery from Little Dorrit - I just adore that character because he is so utterly adorable! ;)
    YAY! There are more Ioan Gruffudd fans out there!! :)

  7. I LOVE Hornblower- great uniforms and lots of excitement!

  8. ahem, you're not sure if your readers want to know about your life?

    *raises hand* i do! :)

  9. The Marchioness - Oh goody! I agree - the uniforms are great! :)

    Sheean - Okay, great! I'll keep 'em coming every once in a while then! :)
