I’m Free!

I finally finished watching Lost Yesterday.

I started watching them almost 2 years ago. I wasted way too much time on them but they sure are hard to stop watching. πŸ˜›

I’m so very glad to be done with it. It felt like they were leading up to a really epic ending, but it was very meh. πŸ˜› Oh well.

dinner and a movie

•March 15, 2011 • Leave a Comment

I had my friend Heather over for dinner and a movie tonight.

I had a netflix DVD coming in the mail so I asked her if she wanted to come over and watch it with me. Then I asked her if she wanted to come over for dinner too, that way I actually have to make something. I tend to brush off such trivial details when I’m only taking care of me. (bad Charlyn)

Dinner was meatballs made from scratch. They turned out really good! It was a much simpler recipe than the last time I tried making them from scratch and I liked them a whole lot better. After cooking them, I added pineapple tidbits and sweet and sour sauce and cooked it all a while longer. Serve it with rice and you have a yummy, filling dinner. (my mom likes to lay a row of frozen meatballs from costco in a 9×13 pan, cover with S&S sauce and pineapple, cook til it’s all good and hot and serve with rice)

Then for the movie. I had ‘An American in Paris’. a 1951 musical with Gene Kelly. We weren’t impressed. Normally I adore musicals, but this one was just too disjointed and some of the story line just wasn’t at all nice. It was getting late (for me :P) so we didn’t even finish it. I might finish it someday, or look it up online to see how it ended. But it’s quite predictable.

On another note, I’ll probably ask Jonathan to log into my Facebook for me and make it so that these blogs don’t automatically post there. So if you want to keep up with these, please bookmark my blog or add it to your RSS reader. πŸ™‚

some ramblings

•March 13, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Apparently I set up this blog to automatically post to my notes on Facebook. I hadn’t posted on here in over a year so I had totally forgotten about that. I was with Jonathan on his Facebook looking at an Event that is coming up and saw my last two blog posts on his news feed. Oops πŸ˜›

Daylight savings time just ended, or started… I think it just ended… Either way, my schedule at work will change because of it. They were letting people come in an hour early so that they didn’t always have to drive home in the dark. I rather liked that schedule a lot better because I don’t like working ’til 5. πŸ˜› But I’m kinda looking forward to not even being able to go in that early, so that I can sleep ’til a more reasonable hour.

Tomorrow is the final for my math class, I’m so ready to be done with it. I’ve just been feeling like I have no time for anything lately and having those two evenings during the week free will be so very nice.

So far the couple of blogs I have posted have been fairly rambly in nature. I do hope you don’t mind. But then, I’m certainly not forcing you to read them. πŸ™‚ I’m hoping that if I do keep posting I will find some sort of aΒ rhythm;Β but for now I just want to let my friends know what’s going on with me since I disappeared on them for a month. πŸ˜›

Oh, I am sorry that my blog here is so very dark at the moment. I’m going to keep trying different themes until I find one I like better

I’m still here

Hey there πŸ™‚

I’m such a procrastinator. I meant to post at least once or twice a week during my month off of Facebook but seeing as this is my first post during that time, I’m a little bit behind.

Well, we all must start somewhere, yes?

It’s now been a dozen days since I signed onto facebook and I do rather miss it. And I very much miss being on chat to chat with my dear friends there. πŸ™‚

This week has been quite a mess for me. I’ve been fighting a cold, which on top of my allergies is not fun at all. Jonathan has been gone since Monday on an install with Adec. So of course I’ve missed him terribly. He was supposed to be back to Newberg at about noon today, but his first flight got delayed for 4hrs so of course he missed his connecting flight and had a 5hr layover. His flight to Portland will be taking off any minute now and I’m quite ready to go pick him up and see him again.

Today I finally sat down to try to finally finish a dress I started a few months ago. About a month ago I got fed up with it and all the little things I needed to fix. So I just now did some fixing and got it to fit me better, and upon trying it on myself again, I don’t think I even like it on myself. πŸ˜› How annoying. Maybe I’ll try selling it if I can ever make it presentable.

I painted my toenails purple today ^_^ and I think I might go get a manicure before I pick Jonathan up. Something I hardly ever do, I think I’ve gotten about 3-4 manicures in my life.

Thanks for stopping by and checking up on me (if anyone actually does :P) and have a blessed Sunday tomorrow! πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas!

I’ve just had a wonderful Christmas with my family. πŸ™‚ And this makes 2 whole days in 1 week that I haven’t had to go *anywhere* all day long. *happy sigh* Let me tell you, it’s been wonderful.

I have aquired about a gallon sized bag worth of candy today (mostly chocolate ^_^) I think I have enough sugar to last me 2 months now. πŸ˜›

I also received a wonderful Hershey’s chocolate recipe card tin from a most wonderful friend. I think I shall have to try a recipe out soon to serve on my new rosey pink serving plate πŸ˜€

a new post

•October 24, 2009 • Leave a Comment

hmm, I havne’t been on here in a while, maybe I’ll try to start blogging again.

I’ve been quite busy lately, between two jobs, AWANA, Church, a vague attempt at a social life, and life in general.

I’m still working at the grocery store, and two months ago I started working at a dental equipment company as a temp. I’m working anywhere between 45-56hrs with the two jobs.

I haven’t done *any* sewing in over 3 months! I’m hoping to remedy that soon, while starting a sewing business on Etsy.com πŸ™‚ I’ll be sure to post about it when I actually put something on there. πŸ˜›

I started helping with AWANA at my church again this year. This time as the secretary for the Sparky’s. I’ve really been enjoying that, especially with things settling down now that we’re a few weeks into it.

I’ve been practicing a couple of Christmas songs on the piano. It’s been wonderful to be playing a bit again. Right now I’m practicing “Sing we now of Christmas” and “Jolly old saint Nicholas/Canon in D”. Sing we now of Christmas I got out of a new Christmas piano book, I’m really loving this version. And ‘Jolly Old Saint Nicholas’ is a version I learned a few years ago, that’s also really pretty. I am hoping to add at least one more song in a week or two, but we’ll see. :)And of course, then I still have the recorder that I should learn something on, now that I’ve got my recorder book back from VA. πŸ™‚

Suppose that will do for a start. πŸ™‚
