Changes

Wow. We have been married for a little over 7 months, and we adopted a cat, are moving to a new/bigger apartment and have a little one on the way. Never did I ever think so many things would happen in such a short period of time!

Theres nothing like new & overwhelming responsibilities to show you how little you know. I’m just so thankful that my husband  is so open-minded & loving. I would seriously lose my mind without him.

This week we are moving to our new apartment (Wednesday-Friday) and I am in over my head with all the packing and stuff. I have also been really sick this weekend and still am not feeling up to moving around much and don’t feel like eating much. Hopefully today I can make some progress so that we can actually find stuff in our new apartment at the end of the week. :)

I have some ideas I want to use in the new apartment:

– paint the wall behind our bed to make up for lack of a headboard

– paint the side table with chalkboard paint & use the cool green bucket I got on clearance at Michaels for knitting or books

– make that throw pillow I have all the materials for but have been putting off

We shall see if these come to pass….

Anyway, I will try to get some pictures of the move & new apartment to show you. Thanks for reading!


John 10:11

Come you broken, bound by sin,
And let your weary journey end.
Come and lay your burdens down
Where mercy rules and peace abounds.

What depth of love, what reach of grace!
Oh, how my grateful heart now aches
To sing it louder, the refrain;
Jesus died, my soul to save!
Jesus died, my soul to save.

“I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.”


theology

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines theology as: “the study of religious faith, practice, and experience; especially : the study of God and of God’s relation to the world”

I stated before that I want this to be a discussion. Also, if I ask a question or make a statement it is not because I do not have a strong opinion/belief on it, but rather I would like to hear the thoughts of friends & strangers who also enjoy thinking about these things and from whom I would not get to talk to due to distance.

On this first Thursday, would you please be so kind as to tip me off about the topics YOU would like to discuss or see discussed.

Hopefully this will work, but it largely depends on participation….so we will give it a try!! :)


A schedule of sorts….

So I am hoping that giving myself a schedule of post subjects will keep me going. :) I haven’t gotten in all figured out, but here is a rough sketch…

Monday – Married life and the things I’m learning…or funny things that happened…there are lots of those.

Tuesday – I don’t know yet. Maybe about pregnancy something or rather….if so, I’m sure it will get interesting as time goes on…lol.

Wednesday – Alll kinds of wackiness – comics or funny pictures …in other words, something to make you laugh.

Thursday – I know a lot of you will probably tune out on this day if I actually go with this, but I’m playing with the idea of discussing theology. And I MEAN discussing…as in I want your input.

Friday – FOOD! After a whole week of cooking meals (especially as much as I use Pintrest) I hope to share something I especially liked the past week.

Sunday – Song lyrics, a verse, devotional….something like that. Simple and hopefully encouraging.

Saturday – HA! I’m sleeping in and you should too! :) Maybe a DIY post since Saturday is the only day I will have time to do that.

So since today is Tuesday…I guess I’ll just work on tomorrow’s post due to my indecision. :)

Hope today has been a great one for you!


le chat mystérieux

wow…it has been forever since i have posted ANYTHING on this blog…shame on me! life has been super busy, but i suppose everyone’s life is pretty busy.

when i named this blog i was thinking of what my favorite author Edgar Allan Poe said…”I wish I could write as mysteriously as a cat.” but now my husband & i have adopted our very own “chat mystérieux” and named her….ZELDA. :o)

it is terribly difficult to get a good picture of her...she is like a sneaky ninja!

She is pretty much a little grouch, but the cutest one ever probably. :)

Also….TADA! Baby Robinson will make his/her appearance around August 9th, 2012! We won’t know the gender until March so we are knee-deep in suspense! We can’t wait to meet our little one!

Hopefully I will get back on track with regular entries as soon as I figure out how I want to do it. Hope you’ll stay tuned! :)


Our Home

He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Here are a few more pictures of the apartment…

The futon...:)

The..."living/dining/computer area"...lol :)

Self-explanatory....I should think...

Breakfast bar and kitchen...

Kitchen...

Our combined shrine to dark fantasy...one of our big common interests....;)

I tried to get the blue curtain, but it didn't work so well...

I love our little home.



I love the man who comes home from working hard every day.



I love waking up and making him a sandwich at 4am.



I love not getting to bed early enough because we were playing Halo 3


together or just talking way too much.



I love how he can read my mind.



 I love our home, not because of the decorations or possessions…but because I share it with my best friend.
