Because I'm a Gypsy

I was watching American Idol last night and Shakira for some reason sang a song about being a gypsy. After I got dressed this morning, I realized that I sort of looked like one-with the jangly necklaces and bow! However, it might be more hippy than gypsy..but that's alright :)
Today's pictures aren't great, but that's because it was raining and dark out. Then when I came outside to go to class at 1 oclock the sun was shining so brightly! I didn't want to take the time to find another spot that wasn't full of puddles, so what I got is what you see :) haha

Today's verse:
Hebrews 1:8
Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever,and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.

It looks like a rather blustery day, today

Hum dum dum ditty dum
Hum dum dum

Oh the wind is lashing lustily
And the trees are thrashing thrustily
And the leaves are rustling gustily
So it's rather safe to say
That it seems that it may turn out to be
It feels that it will undoubtedly
It looks like a rather blustery day, today
It sounds that it may turn out to be
Feels that it will undoubtedly
Looks like a rather blustery day today

Whooosh!! The day was going alright, when all of a sudden I started taking pictures and the wind just started gusting away!! It says it's about 31 mph winds out there-yikes!
But in honor of the pretty blossoms growing on my picture taking trees, I wore matching earrings earrings today! I'm not sure you can see them in the pictures, but they are little white flower studs:)
Anywho, I went to the library on campus today and brought home a bunch of books to keep! They had been selling them for under a dollar or s for the past few weeks,and they finally marked all of the books free!! I probably could have brought home a lot more, but decided I didn't need them. They also had a bunch of old VHS tapes that were just BEYOND awesome! haha, they had tapes to use in your classroom, like the history behind just about every holiday there is out there. So I came away with three tapes on just ridiculous things-i'm sure they will give my sister Jenifer and myself hours of enjoyment and laughter at how awful they are!! haha! Not only that, but they had a bunch of books on tape-cassete tapes. Oh, how I love it! So yes, I had a little bit of fun at the library today-hooray! Hope your week is going well-only two more days of school left and 3 finals to take-yippee!!

Today's verse:
Luke 5:26
Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, "We have seen remarkable things today."

I like to blog. In fact, over the past few months I have enjoyed blogging everyday and spending time outside to take my pictures. However, I kind of wish that I could just take the pictures and they would magically appear on the internet without me having to edit them, post them, etc. It really does take up lots of valuable time from your day! So I apologize for my lack of posting over the last couple of days :) As I said, as soon as finals are over things should go back to normal (or maybe speed up with wedding planning?)
Anyway, today was kind of chilly outside! It was supposed to be in the sixties, but I beg to differ. I had to wear my turtleneck, scarf, and coat all day long. Maybe I'm just cold from lack of sleep...hmmmm...But the outfit was very simple and comfy and I liked it :) And to my surprise, when I went to my usual picture taking spot I was greeted with a beautiful, sweet smell and some lovely white blossoms on the trees! It was truly great and I couldn't help but put some of the wonderful little flowers in my hair :D
Now I must score some tests before tomorrow and try to come up with some sort of creative outfit for the day which allows me to help teach PE...bleh!

Luke 19:10, For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."

Busy weekend!

I'm sorry for the lack of posting for the last couple of days! I've been super busy/gone/it's been pouring rain for the past few days! I went to see my favorite comedian on Friday night-Brian Regan!! He was fantastic...and then Saturday I hung out with my sister all day :) We bummed around my place and ate blueberry pancakes and watched movies and it was awesome. Then today we went to church and drove to my other sister's house and hung out all day eating food and playing with my nephew :D
So it was a pretty great weekend!! I even found time to do some laundry, cook, and get my homework done!! How often does all of that happen?!
My sister Jeni took my photos today-thanks Jen!!
This next week is the last week of classes before finals, so it might be pretty crazy! You'll know why my posting is sparse...I suppose homework is more important than blogging...but I hope you all have a wonderful week and God bless!

Today's verse:
Deuteronomy 11:14
Then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil.

Earth day!

The first thing my first graders said to me this morning was "do you know what day it is? It's Earth day-and i'm wearing green!!!" haha, they were so excited!
I love it when the weather is gorgeous and you're just floating around in a comfy dress. I love it when you have some time in between classes to just walk slowly and enjoy the day-Thanks God!

Today's verse:
John 3:31
The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all.
