Weekend warriors

This past weekend was very busy yet relaxed at the same time.
We went to CJ to do a few things with all intentions of coming home that night, but in reality we got home at 8pm on Sat. Where did the time go?
Sunday was filled with running around, and a bit of yard work. :) We planted 20 raspberries and my bulbs are coming up, and its starting to look like a nice yard, versus the crap hole it was when we moved in.

It amazes me still how much pride I feel when we get something done or planted or fixed up around this old house.  It still needs alot of work, but the front yard is almost done, just flower beds left to plant and weed.  Our backyard still needs alot of TLC.  We need to rake and someday(?) seed the yard, rip out the terrrible rock sculpture thing, and fix our horseshoe pits. :) Then we will be in the BBQ business. 

Pictures soon to come when the sun pokes its head back out. :)

Cooking Light ♥

I love that I get my own subscription.  I have always admired the collection of magazines that my mom had from over the years, and each one had at least 25 different recipes, and each one was better then the best.  This months just came in the mail, and its filled with delicious pizza recipes that make me want to build a brick oven and start baking ASAP!

Perhaps we shall have pizza for dinner tomorrow.... we'll see..

faith in puzzle pieces

Sometimes I wonder where I would have ended up if certain things would have turned out differently, and even if things would have changed, would I still be where I am because it was my fate?  People always say what if I would have done this differently I wouldnt be in this situation, but who knows that things wouldnt have turned out to be the exact same.  No one can possibly know how things would have turned out if done differently unless they have some magic time machine and have tried every single possible outcome. 

I like to think that no matter what I could have changed, or would have done, I think that I would still be where I am today.  Things happen for a reason, and things turn out a certain way for a reason, everyone has a destiny and its up to you to go after it, and pursue it, or wait around for it to find you. 

No matter where you start out or what kind of pit stops you make along the way you will still end up at the end of the same race you started, you arnt going to end up somewhere different because you hung around at that rest area a little longer then the rest.  Which is why fate exists, if we didnt have fate, where would we be?  Lost with no direction, we wouldnt know where we were supposed to end up, or what we even wanted out of life.  I may not have much faith but I am a firm believer in fate.  I have faith in fate.

I like to wonder about the what ifs in life, often wondering if I had stayed at U of O, would I still have met Jerrod and fallen in love, and found my soulmate, and I always come to the same conclusion.  He is my soulmate, and the other half to my puzzle piece, neither of our lives could be complete until we found eachother, and it may have taken longer then it did had I stayed, but I strongly believe that we would have found eachother eventually.  I think that by moving home, I started to sort out the pieces to finish my life puzzle, and had i stayed, I would have still been in the box with the rest of the 10,000 pieces, instead of on the table, sorted out into piles of similar pieces.  I'm thankful that our pieces were in the same pile, and got placed together. ♥

A fresh start

Haven't blogged in a while. 

I used to be so avid in posting every day and keeping up with my blog, back when live journal was the thing to do, but since i've grown up a little, and left the bustle of highschool, I have let my online diary fade away. 
                                                                        But I have truely missed this.
