A believing life (31): The Bag with Blue Dots

Little Lovely J’s 7th birthday tomorrow. Intended to make a card, but ended up writing a book. So amateurish. Nonetheless, tons of fun 🙂 So happy to see both Little Lovelys pleased with their moulting Mawsons. (I have one too

A believing life (29): Holy Surprise

“Always we begin again” What a lovely thought. “What we must never be encouraged to do, although all of us are guilty of it over and over, is to force Scripture to fit our experience. Our experience is too small;

A believing life (21): Draw me nearer

Got down to the swatch today. Some colours are different – in the pan, and on paper. I could never tell. Water makes the paint dance. The colours have a mind of their own. I don’t quite understand. In any case, was quite

Hard roads, Resonant hallelujahs

So the year comes to an end. December has been a wonderful month for me, long-awaited. A complete cutoff from work. Time to gaze upon God, and breathe the slow rhythms of grace. Time with people I love. Just being.

Bundtle of fun

The blueberries. Been sitting there forever. The muesli. FM said it was too hard for her to eat on its own. Thoughts of sour cream. Guess it was time to bake again. Modified a sour cream cake recipe lying around

Love Always Prevails (IX)… No. Absolutely Prevailed.

Quite suddenly, it’s over. Wow. Wasn’t supposed to be today, but a few surprises popped up. Coda. Ending with one of the best possible sessions. What a treat. But, so sudden. Pity about not being able to say a couple

Gingerly Yours

Today I learnt that one cannot randomly replace one ginger for another. Blame (or thank!) the supermarket for teaching me this lesson. Because it only had yellow and blue ginger. Neither were correct for what I was going to cook.

Heart-felt

Tonight I re-learnt an important lesson: Do what only you can do.  Read in one way, it also means that it’s good to know what your unique non-talents are! :p Here’s the story… ———- I think I’m in a felt

A nice stepping-back

The last few days have been a nice stepping-back. Felt like how things were, little more than just a year ago. I’ve put aside this bit of me for the better part of this year, for good reason. Yet, it

Growing Together

I’ve never had green fingers. Cacti have died under my care. That’s how bad it is. So I’m not sure what happened in the last 2-3 days. Maybe getting deep into the trenches can be lonely. Maybe it’s just the

Foiled

It was such a long day yesterday. Must remember never to pack it so tightly ever. Was ready to sleep when class began; voice already almost gone. And I was in good company :p WY wasn’t feeling well, so she

Poster Colours II

Such an interesting class yesterday evening. Ah, so this is how they get furry edges… interesting. If I had not seen it for myself, I wouldn’t have thought of using flat brushes to get such an effect. Plus, the pictures

Skunkwworks 07: Hand-eye coordination

There’s a good reason why I don’t drive, can’t cycle and dance with two left feet. Balance (rather, the lack of), and hand-eye coordination (yes, the lack of, too) :p Boo might just change all that.       Had
