not much to post on this lazy friday evening but i thought i would just write some thoughts…
-its cold in the jerz. it was 40 when i woke up, 42 by the time i left work and should hit 45 by sundown. apparently a noreaster (is that even how you spell it?) came through. but its all good. lots of good things keeping us warm and happy.
-one of the things keeping us happy is a box nick’s mom sent us. it has more little wrapped items than i can even count. and our instructions are to open them whenever we are cold, or need a pick me up! it is awesome. so far we opened a candle (when i was putting my summer clothes away) and some sweet note cards which have some specific instructions (which i cant share or else it’ll ruin the surprise!). we are grateful to nick’s mom for her love and thoughtfulness!
-i have been enjoying a supper club type things with some great girls up here. every thursday night there are 6 of us that get together and share dinner, laughter, and vino. its fantastic. and last night we kicked it up by making s’mores. SO GOOD. just put some marshmallows in the oven on broil for a couple minutes and bam… you have perfect marshmallows to add to some graham crackers and chocolate. amazing.
-i’ve been listening to phil wickham alot lately. he is so good…. some lyrics…
The fullness of Your grace is here with me
The richness of Your beauty’s all I see
The brightness of Your glory has arrived
In Your presence God, I’m completely satisfied
For You I sing I dance
Rejoice in this divine romance
Lift my heart and my hands
To show my love, to show my love
A deep deep flood, an Ocean flows from You
Of deep deep love, yeah it’s filling up the room
Your innocent blood, has washed my guilty life
In Your presence God I’m completely satisfied
-and one last thing… geeebee, my amazing grandmother found out there is a kandinsky exhibit at the guggenheim in nyc. nick and i have yet to pick a date to go but we will soon! in college i wrote a term paper about kandinsky and have been incredibly interested in his work… so good
hope you all are doing well. we’ll try to be more consistent in blogging. i like what my best friend kel does… a pic a day. its easy and awesome. need to work on that. much love from the (cold) jerz…
