Photo Jars

Between church services, I caught up with my friend Ryan to hang out at the gallery of modern art. A couple of months ago he bought one of my photos at an exhibition and we did the hand over today.

So many cool things in the gallery and lots of people to see including the very "well toned" guys practicing Capoeira outside...

This evening my Life Group was rostered to run the cafe. It was pretty quiet tonight and we beat our own record for cleaning down the place... YES!!

A bunch of us went for drinks and a catch up at Jase & Shelley's afterwards. Good times, but I got so engrossed in conversation that I missed the last train and ended up going home by cabbage. Bah!!

Over and out...

Oh my goodness!! I had the craziest morning.

Slept through my alarm and got up an hour late, the hot water unit went on strike so I had a shower so cold that it felt as though the water had been pumped directly from Antarctica, missed a train by this much * squeezes thumb and forefinger together really tightly * and had to wait for EVER for the next one. Got in to the office just before 10am... soooooo late...

The big news for today is that our Premier announced his resignation which comes into effect on Thursday. Yep, that's in three days time. WOW!!!

Since I work for his department it will be interesting to see what happens in the coming weeks.

I briefly caught up with my brother at lunch time. He and Mags were in town shopping and called to see what I was up to. I only got to talk to Mags on the phone because she was in a parents' room deep within a department store feeding baby Eliza and I had to go back to work before they finished... ah well... it was good to see Simon.

Poolie's photo

Caucus voted for our new Premier today and while the outcome wasn't particularly surprising, it is quite groundbreaking for our state in that this will be the first time we've had a female in the role.

My Dad asked if I had a bigger desk yet because he was sure that all female public servants would be getting more privelages. I told him that we would now get a stocking allowance in our pay.

This photo was given to me a while ago by my lovely friend Ian (who lives over here). The woman in the picture is recognised as a living treasure in Japan for her beautiful work in ceramics. She is the mother of one of Ian's Japanese mates and he had the honour of taking her portrait during a visit several years ago. It's one of my fave pix.

I finished the necklace tonight and if Sexy Swedish Babe would like to flickrmail me her postal address, she can be the first person to see how it turned out... {:->

Andrew K

This is Andrew and today I went to a picnic for his birthday.

The weather was perfect (if a little too summery for the time of year) for lounging about chatting and munching on yummy food.

Before the morning service at church I was asked if I would be lead singer for the band next week (I usually only do backing vocals). Said yes, but felt a bit nauseous.

While I was having coffee with a few friends I continued a conversation that I've been having with Shelley for about a month. She runs the community care program that my church has and each month they put on a dinner for the homeless and boarding house people in the surrounding suburbs.

Anyway, so a while ago she asked me if I would come and sing one time. I said yes, but we hadn't set a date yet.

Today we talked about it again. I said I would do the one for October and then asked Craig if he would play with me. He said yes and then I felt even more nauseous because it's really real now that the date is set and other musos are involved.

I've sung a bazillion times in my life, but I've never really been the one to choose songs and stuff, so I'm more than a little nervous...

We live in the same city, have spoken in groups and commented on each other's photos for months now, but have never met in the real world.

Early next month, she is moving to another city so we decided to meet up before that happens.

Both of us are a bit on the shy side so were a bit nervous about meeting and wondered if we could keep a conversation going, but it all went pretty well and she is lovely.

2. I can't remember the last time my hair wasn't dyed...
3. I once went to the emergency room because an angry ant bit me lots of times and made me go all puffy.
4. I love God even when life sometimes feels too complicated.
5. I am actually very shy.
6. I am a pretty good singer.
7. I have never been overseas, but I do have a list of places I want to visit.
8. I live two streets away from the house I grew up in.

Operation Christmas Child Wrapping Night

I left work early today and headed down to a local lawn bowls club to meet some friends for drinks. We sat by the river and sipped on icey cold beers. So good!

Afterwards, we headed down to church to wrap and pack boxes for Operation Christmas Child. I had never realised just how difficult it is to wrap a shoe box. Anyhoo... there were lots of hands to help out and I think we ended up filling about 160 boxes with all sorts of gifts for underprivileged kids around the world.

When everything was done, a small group of us scooted off to Cyber City for some tasty, tasty Chinese food.

I was really looking forward to sitting back and soaking it all in, when I was asked to help out with Children's Church because someone hadn't turned up. Ah well... It was pretty fun and I got to hang out with Miss Molly, who is one of my favourite little people.

Afterwards, a group of us tootled up the road for a picnic to celebrate Craig's birthday. The weather was perfect!!

Came back for the evening service to catch the sermon that I missed in the morning and then a few of us headed out to hear Jason play his first solo gig at a REALLY cool venue. It's in an old substation that used to power the tram lines (when Brisbane had trams).

I got an email from my friend Stacey this morning that was responding to one I had sent yesterday. It said something like "yes, let's go and do that at lunchtime".

It didn't have the text from my email in it and I was having a bit of a blonde moment, so I couldn't quite remember what I'd asked her to do with me.

After a bit of searching and a phone call, I remembered that it was about getting our ears re-pierced. We'd been talking about it for a while because our holes had closed up years ago.

We went at lunchtime and allowed a lady to stab pieces of metal through our our earlobes. It didn't hurt.

Today was the first day that it hasn't rained/stormed in a week. The sun was all warm and summery.

I had a lovely sleep in and then tootled off to help my friend Colin celebrate his 30th birthday at a BBQ by the river.

It was so nice to chill out in the fresh air and catch up with friends.

When I left the party I decided that I wasn't ready to go home yet, so I went to see Death at a Funeral.

FUNNY!!!! So good{:->

The garlic prawns I had for lunch were pretty tasty, but now I could melt the eyebrows of anyone who stood in front of me...

Hmmmm... I've been away from here for quite a while.

Life got busy and then I've been feeling a little less than fantastic in the last few days. Working through it though and starting to feel more like my self.

I have some photos, but have missed quite a few days when I truly lacked any sort of creative drive.

Will try to catch up here over the weekend {:->

Hi Lalalian! I needed to stop by and get myself caught up on your journal. Looks like life has been pulling you in multiple directions, too. And I feel like I need some clarity in my thoughts as well.

By the way, love the ladybug pic. I wonder if it is the same ladybug that I shot! :)

@ Jray - Yeah, lots and lots has been happening in just about every area of my life. Some good, some not so good and some downright painful but God has been teaching, guiding, stretching and healing me so I can see the positive in most of it, although all this change does make one a little weary sometimes.

@ CG - Thank you {:->

@ SSB - Hello dearie. I've missed being around here too. I'm going to dig through my pix tonight and see what I come up with {:->

Sang for both services at church and in between I went to check out the Queensland Multicultural Festival.

It was wonderful to see so many different nationalities represented in the one place.

I can't remember much about today except that I felt tired.

There was a lovely sunset, but that photo didn't turn out, so you get this pic of the train doors.

Met Stacey and Rachel for lunch.

We talked about lots of stuff and Rach was cracking us up so much that Stacey needed to have some asthma medication when she got back to work.

Mulberry

Spent the day with my family and my nephew managed to find a few ripe mulberries on the tree that had so far been undiscovered by the fruit bats and possums.

I went to visit the museum and art galleries today and discovered that my favourite installation had returned after many months absence due to the space being needed to display other pieces.

The sound and movement of all the spheres being jostled around in the water is so soothing. I sat here for nearly an hour watching them and the people that came past.

** NO PICS **

These were some really tough days.

I've been trying to work something out for a while and finally asked a friend for advice.

Everything she said pretty much mirrored the conclusions I was coming to about the situation, but it still didn't make anything clearer.

I cried a lot.... More than I have done for a long time.

It was partly because bringing things out into the open lifted the weight of the issue off me, which brought a great sense of relief and partly because it was incredibly painful to talk about things that I've held close for so long.

After a lot of prayer, the words that kept coming to mind were... "wait", "be patient" and "have faith".

And so, this is what I will try to do.

I spent most of the day feeling incredibly nauseous because I've got a massive (well, for me) gig on Monday night.

We need about an hour worth of songs and the band probably wouldn't be able to all get together for a proper run through before the night.

Jase, Craig and I met after work to go through my songs, but had to leave Kristy's ones because it's really difficult to figure out harmonies when the person doing melody line isn't there.

Ah well... after we went through the first couple of songs I felt a lot more comfortable with it. Those guys are amazing.
