What's New

Jolie got a box full of about 40 records for $20 at a yard sale Sunday, and got a record player today. Most of them are ones she listened to as a kid - country, 70's pop etc. We were grooving along to Madonna's "Like A Virgin" album... you know, her young and innocent phase, haha. It's really cool and fun actually - Jolie and I share a love of nostalgia and history. She got a Sears catalogue from 1962 as well... we've been paging through, lamenting how much nicer and more innocent times used to be. The ladies are all dressed up with their pumps and gloves... as Jolie said, this is the Sears catalogue - imagine what the couture of the time looked like! Now, I want to go thrift store shopping and see if I can find some cool old records. I remember when I was younger and we had a yard sale and we made fun of my parents, because who would want to buy a bunch of old records? As I often tell Jolie - we become what we mock!

Monday night, the church had a Women's Connections night at which we decorated a pot with paint, stencils and markers and planted a little herb garden. I planted dill, cilantro, Greek oregano and chives as well as a pretty pansy, which evidently are edible - though I think I'll pass on that. Hopefully, it will survive - I'm trusting Jolie to help me out; she's a far more experienced gardener than I am. My friend and I ended the evening with gelato... so delicious. Although I've heard that the best gelato here can't compare at all to the "real" thing in Italy. I don't know if I'll ever find out if that's true, but in the meantime I savoured my chocolatey treat!

Heather Mills got kicked off "Dancing With the Stars" tonight - I know most people hate her because "she was never good enough for Sir Paul", but I quite enjoyed watching her dance. As one of the judges said, she danced as if no one was watching and put her everything into it. Hmmm... will John Ratzenberger or Billy Ray be next?

Layni passed her test today for the next level in Tae Kwon Do (white-yellow belt?) and gets promoted Saturday, when she tells me she will break a board with her foot. She's never done it, but tells me she's been practicing with newspaper so it shouldn't be a problem. Okay, then.

I told Marty I had some bad news - Mattias asked me to pray with him Saturday night. "What do we say when we pray?" I asked him. "We close our eyes." "Okay, then what do we say?" "God." "Okay, what do we say to God?" "Good night!" So, we thanked God for the day and said good night. Mattias went to church with me on Sunday, and then to McDonalds for lunch; Layni went to her cousin's birthday party and then stayed over at her dad's house on the weekend.

I went to see the movie "Music and Lyrics" (with Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant) on Saturday. It was a nice little romantic comedy, but not one you want to watch over and over like "Pretty Woman" or "Forget Paris" or "Shallow Hal" - a few of my faves. "Forget Paris" is a more obscure movie starring Billy Crystal and Debra Winger, but I highly recommend it. Then afterwards, I stopped at Rogers Video where they were having a sale on their previously viewed DVD's (2 for $24) and I got "Ice Age 2: The Meltdown" and "The Nativity Story." Haven't seen either yet, but I'm excited for both.

Yesterday, Jolie convinced me to do the hike up and down the power line trails in Coquitlam. If she didn't encourage me, I would never make the effort, but it's easier if you have a friend. After that and going to the gym today, I am so ready for bed tonight! (In fact, I was ready about 3:00 pm this afternoon!)

Confession time - I ordered some books from CBD and received them yesterday. The problem is they send you catalogues with your order and you find all sorts of great bargains and if you're a bibliophile like me, you can't resist temptation... so I placed another order yesterday afternoon. I know, I know, I already have dozens of books I haven't read yet, but I just can't help myself - I am an addict. Do they have Book Buyers Anonymous?

Another fun thing - I have been reconnecting with a lot of old friends, especially from my years working at Circle Square Ranch, through facebook.com.

Well, I think that's all my bits of news from the last few days. And now, I am SO ready for bed! Love you, dear friends! Good night!
