I'm It ("It" as in tagged, not "It" as in "Cousin It"[as though you were able to make that mistake])

4 jobs I've had in my life:

1. Cleaning at the dairy previously referred to by Manda and Tam. Of course I was only 5, so as to how much help I was, I'm not entirely sure. I do however remember scrubbing the walls with hot soaping water and almost being flattened by a cow. :D
2. Goatherdress, chicken tamer, and one of the egg ladies. Ok, I admit, the chickens weren't that wild, but can you blame me for trying to make it sound interesting? On the animal note I also fed calves and forked hay for my Uncle Dave.
3. Morning cook, for the Pantry Family Restaurant.
4. Jode of all Trades.

4 movies I could watch over and over:

1. Pride and Prejudice (A&E)
2. Our Mutual Friend (BBC)
3. Oliver Twist (also BBC, the newer version)
4. Les Miserables, Little Women, or something of that sort.

4 novels that should be made into movies:

1. Scottish Chiefs
2. The Woman in White
3. Northanger Abby
4. Mansfield Park ( I demand a remake!!)

4 places I've lived:

1. Grande Prarie (Grovedale), AB, Canada
2. Athabasca, AB, Canada
3. Fort Nelson, BC, Canada
4. PG, BC, Canada

4 TV shows I love to watch:

I don't regularly watch TV, but when I do have the opportunity (a rare day) I usually watch the more craft oriented shows, Jag, The National, or something else almost at random.

4 websites I visit daily:

4. (only to use my links. :P)

4 of my favourite foods:

1.Chicken Alfredo pizza from Romeo's - their crust is perfection (but their crust wasn't perfection last night)
2. Seafood pasta, with some kinda cheese sauce
3. Busy Salads
4. Apples, usually accompanied with some pb or
a slice of cheese

4 places I'd rather be right now:

Happy where I am. :D

4 people I tag:

Yup, I'm here in Albany and have been since last Tuesday evening. :D Everything is going great, cept that I am soo tried (that when reviewing this I found that I had written "tried" instead of "tired", I think I proved my point, eh?) right now, but who can I blame but myself? If you're looking for an update, check out Tam's blog

And now for a little more of an update. Yesterday was the Lord's day, and it was a very nice one. The temperture dropped which added a few difficulties to the day, but I think everyone handled those with lots of grace and ...warm mittens. After the fellowship meal, Ed, Hannah, Ethan, Tony, Shawn, Tam, Jen and Co. and myself took ourselves over to the Ang H's where we had an evening of visiting and lively discussion. Then upon returning home we proceeded to stay up late, thus the tired part.

Today was nice, I offer no more details. The End.

Always hard to believe what can happen in a year, in a day, or even a moment. A year ago yesterday, and life hasn't been the same since. God gives and he takes away; the same year He took my dad but gave us Em and Amos. Ah yes, 2005 had its many rocks, but I'm sure it must have had its roses as well. I suppose the fewer roses there were among the stones the more fragrant their scent and the most thankful we were to have them.

Psa 118:17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. (Dad reminded himself of this verse quite often when he was in pain, and it certain is true, thanks be to God. :) )
Joh 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Yesterday was also the 17th birthday of my cousin Clint, so a happy birthday to him, although I don't think he has my blog link. :)

Just about done packing for Albany ( :D :D :D) and wrapping some "must do's" up, so I had better get back to it.

As I lost a lot of detail/quality in the combo below I thought I would post them separately. :)
