Yeah, so I like alot of things. I am a strange yet lovable person, and I just want to be the best version of me that God created me to be.

I like artistic things and music and colors and sunshine.  The rain is also pretty amazing, but I like more sun than rain.  A good summer thunderstorm with lightning and thunder when I’m snuggled on the couch with Chris is just amazing.  But a sunny day in March after a long winter is equally delicious.

I love food alot.  I love sushi, and dill pickles, and nachos and salsa.  Actually pretty much all Mexican food.  And turkey dinners.  I look forward to those all year long.

I have an unexplained fear of revolving doors and avoid them at all costs. I think that’s weird.  I also really love my friends and family. They are awesome.  I haven’t always had close friends in my life, let alone a group of 6 of us that I call best friends.  So blessed. And my family isn’t too bad either. haha.

Oh yeah, I love cleaning too, but yet my house isn’t spotless. Explain that one!

Scrapbooking is a favorite hobby, but I wish I were better/more dedicated at it.  Same goes for photography.  And painting.  And drawing.  And writing… and.. and…

I want to go back to school and get my masters someday.  In between kids, after kids, ever… ? I don’t know. God knows.

Anyway, that’s enough of my talking about nothing.  I guess I was bored or something. Good night!

Oh one more thing… ok like 3… I love babies and am having one of my own!!!!!!!! I love Jesus & seek Him daily, and I just love LOVE.  Jesus’ love of his bride is the ultimate example for how I am supposed to love.

I’d just like to mention that last year was decidedly unwinter-ish here in Toronto – it didn’t even snow significantly until like February, and even then it was pathetic. I understand that Toronto is geographically more South than the Northern bit of California, and the Southernmost part of Canada, but still. It’s CANADA! It needs to have snowstorms, and ice, and “winter storm watches”. I miss the 5 foot snowbanks that stay from November – April every year. That’s what I had growing up in New Brunswick. It was pretty fun & exciting, especially on those glorious snow days!

Fast forward to now – December 17, 2007. Yesterday was a fantastic snowstorm that dumped around 30 cm of snow on the GTA, and while that may not be that much to some parts of Canada… for Toronto it’s plenty! Because our brilliant city hasn’t plowed any side roads since mid-afternoon yesterday (before the storm was done), the drive to pick up my friends this morning on the way to work took about 18 minutes. It was 2 km. Soooo… I decided to stay home from work today. Hurray for snow days (even if self-mandated)!

Yesterday was a great day to have a storm, I must say. Saturday night was our Christmas party with the six of us (our best friends, the Carson’s and the Coker’s). It was good times of hanging out, eating, watching a movie, and exchanging gifts (I got the Hairspray soundtrack (!!!) & some scrapping stamps), and then the Coker’s slept over. In the morning the snow had started, so what did we do? Stay in, like smart people? No! Why would we do that? We went on an adventure to Zeller’s and Tim Horton’s (really close to our house)! There was pretty well no one at Zeller’s (a great time to do some Christmas shopping), so we walked around, bought a couple of things for Christmas, and then went to Timmie’s, where there was a line-up like 6 people long. Welcome to Canada! Then we went home, where Mat seized the opportunity to throw off his pacifist convictions and seek global domination through the brutal destroying of the weak, in the game of Risk. Finally, we drove the Coker’s home (again in the snow). I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a snowy day!

I'm Red, he's Honey. I'm the writer of this blog and the source of your entertainment and/or boredom. We're parents of an exceptionally adorable child, and we have no idea what we're doing! This blog is the outlet for my thoughts along the way - welcome! Pull up a couch, grab a cup of tea, and stay a while! Or back away slowly. Whatever works.
