30 Day Challenge Day 9

Day 9 - A picture of someone who has gotten you through the most.

Well, Jesus really has gotten me through the most.
 Probably after Jesus, it would be my older sisters Meg and Han. :)

30 Day Challenge Day 7

I realized that for some reason I never posted Day 7 of the photo challenge. I know I was getting it ready, so either I forgot to hit the "Publish Post" button, or it didn't work! :P
Here is Day 7.
Day 7 - A picture of someone/something that has had the biggest impact on your life.
Uh, DUH! The Bible has had the biggest impact on my life. :)

A Hymn

This hymn has amazing lyrics.

How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom


30 Day Challenge Day 8

Day 8 - A picture of someone who makes you laugh.
My Daddy :) He is probably the funniest person I know. :)


30 Day Challenge Day 6

Day 6 - A picture of you fave band/artist.
 That would be Ludovico Einaudi as my favorite just MUSIC artist (I think),
and BarlowGirl! :)


Brian Crain

Here is a beautiful Brian Crain (new piano guy I found) song for you to enjoy. :) Actually, I think I will put up a few of my favorites. :)
I have been listening to him a LOT lately. :)

30 Day Challenge Day 5

Day 5 - A picture of somewhere you've been.

This is a CCCD site in Knockpatrick, Jamaica where I went on a mission trip in 2007! :)


30 Day Challenge Day 4

Day 4 - A picture of a habit you wish you didn't have.

Yes, I bite my nails, although only the tips of them, and it's not a horrible habit or anything. :P A Habit I really don't like that I have, is that usually when I am reading my hands have to be doing something. Whether it's biting my nails, or playing with my ring, earring, or ear, I am usually doing something. :P And it bugs me sometimes.


30 Day Challenge Day 3

Day 3 - A picture of you and someone you miss.
I really miss this girl, among many others. ;)


30 Day Challenge Day 2

Day 2 - A picture of you and someone you have been closest to for the longest.

Uuum, well I have been closest to my family for the longest. And I can't post a *super* recent picture of my whole family, so I'll post a picture of my brother Ian and I, who are the closest siblings in age! How's that?

And here's a picture of our family from August, just for good measure.


30 Day Challenge Day 1

Day 1 - A photo of you with 15 facts about yourself.

Okay, I got a haircut!! So here is a new picture of moi. And the 15 facts? Scroll down.

Ewww...dirty mirror
1. I love pianos. Playing them, listening to other people play them, touching them, etc. It is my favorite instrument hands down!
2. I have an odd liking of elephants. I think they are sooo cute, except for elephants with tusks. Tusks = not too cute.
3. I taught myself to play the recorder and ocarina (a small flute-like instrument).
4. I won the Editor's Choice award for a poem I wrote when I was twelve.
5. I am an introvert. But I do love my time with my family and friends.
6. I have read the entire Bible four times.
7. I got glasses when I was fifteen and contacts when I was...eighteen! :D
8. I can make my elbow bend inwards.
9. I love haunting music.
10. I am a bit of a computer geek.
11. I have three ear piercings.
12. I had braces for 5 1/2 years. Yuck.
13. I will graduate from homeschool in June.
14. I am 5'1".
15. I have never given blood but I would love to be able to.

30 Day photo challenge

This isn't exactly my top choice for a photo challenge because I would rather be TAKING pictures than FINDING pictures to post. ;) Maybe I'll create my own photo challenge after this one. :)
Right now I will post a song though. Just for you! One that I really love. I love it when I find new artists especially *pianoplaying* artists that I really like, and Helen Jane Long is one of them. I did indeed find her all by myself, and I love her music. :) Most of the piano-playing artists I find, one of my friends introduces me to them, so I'm pretty proud of finding Helen Jane Long by myself. Can you tell?
All right, enough of the rambling. Here's the song.
It is called "To Dust" :)

Picture post!!

It came. Yes, it finally came. I was sitting in the living room and looked out the window. Lo and behold, there was the UPS truck, and my heart gave a wild leap. I saw the shipping label before walking back up to the house, and I managed to stay pretty calm. Then I tore open the box and got the manual. But alas, I had to make supper, so the camera (before it was even fully set up) had to go back in the box until supper was cooking in the oven. After supper I was able to go outside and get a few pictures. I suppose I should upload them for you.
The little dude

Experimenting with the piano

You gotta love your piano!

My favorite of the outside pics

Debut self-portrait....eh

A little better


Da cutie
More sibs!

I'll probably put more pictures on Facebook. ;)
Right now Mary is having fun trying to photograph me while I give her evil glares. How fun is that?
On a different note, I am trying to think of a name for my (camera) baby. I don't think it will end up being too hard since I love the little guy so much. ;) I can't wait until I find the perfect one! ;)

Well, Have a lovely night, and I shall see YOU...some other day.


Photo Challenge? Oh yes...

I have decided that when my camera *finally* comes in the mail (it is supposed to be here between the 17th and 22nd) I will do some photo challenges/memes. Like my friend over at Nightbirds on Nantucket does quite often. Yes, I am copying her, but what could be more of a fun thing to do when you get a new camera?? Besides, I think it will help me to post, and help me to want to post.

On a side note, one of my good friends gave me a CD for my birthday that I can't WAIT to listen to. I have only heard...I think three of the songs before. It is being downloaded to iTunes as I type. I will try and put it on my iPod after it's downloaded, but I have virtually no room on my very outdated iPod, and I think over the years the room on it has been decreasing. As in, I start out with 2gb, and the space limit seems to be going down. Hmmmm....I wonder if they try to do that so that folks will have to buy new iPods. :P I would love to buy a new iPod, except that I don't like the new iPods. They are so tiny, they're touch, you can't watch movies, and you can't take movies! I mean, talk about a downgrade! I seriously should have gotten one when my brother did, and taken advantage of all the features! But how would I know that they would strip the little iPod nano of all its cool features?  Yikes. You all must think that I am an electromaniac. Which I am, to some extent. :P

I am sick. Would you believe that this is my 11th day in a row of being sick?? Yes indeedy. It is. I thought I was getting better from this cold, when I got a HORRIBLE earache in the middle of the night on Sunday. And I ended up having to take two days off of work. Again. Argh. Well, I must fly, so I shall. Thank you for reading my blog. :)



I am getting a camera. I am so  excited. A Canon EOS Rebel T1i to be exact. (!!!!!!!!!!!!) Hopefully I will be able to order it on Saturday, but who knows, it might end up being later than that.
Anyway, I thought I should just make that announcement.
