Times are changing.

Turned 25 today.. seems like only yesterday I was enjoying the simple childhood life. Woke up today and realised times have definitely changed.

As the song goes..It's a new dawn, and a new day and a new life for me
.. - if only I were feeling good right now instead of having a cold and feeling sick *sigh* such is life I suppose.

Well.. to all of you Scorpios out there and to myself.. happy birthday..

Its been 7 Months..

To my faithful readers I apologize for not posting in the past 7 months... life's just been so busy I barely check my email..

I've been quilting like mad lately and working as usual the trophy shop. I need a full time job if anyone is hiring: I have an English degree which means I can read and write and think so feel free to throw job options at me!

My sister is recovering nicely- we just celebrated her 7th month post surgery- and hoping to be med-free in another 5 months :)

I will throw some pics of my recent quilts up on here as soon as I can get my cell phone to let them go...

Now for more exciting news :  I'm Engaged!!!!

Yep that's right, it finally happened :) On September 27th in Niagara falls... We were attending a Conference put on by Branches Catholic Ministries called Regernate(d) and the Holy Spirit inspired my beloved into action. I am now the proud of wearer of a wonderfully nontraditionally gorgeous aquamarine stone <3 Will put up a pic or two soon I promise!

Hope you got your fill of Turkey... I can't believe Winter is Coming :(

<3 C

My sister Tania..

Today my sister Tania underwent brain surgery to make herself seizure free.. it was a success! The surgeon even commented that he wished all of the cases were like hers, everything was so perfect and right. Thank you Lord Jesus for all the gifts you give us.. for the love you have for us.. for the surgeons intelligence and steady hands.. for my sister's courage and strength.. for her husband's understanding and patience.

Father grant them both peace tonight. Amen.
God is so good! So great is our God! We bow down to You gracious Lord and thank you with all our heart's.

Join us in continuing to pray for Tania and Pedro her husband, during her recovery this week.

First post of the new year..

Well it's February 1st 2014 and I can't believe how quickly we transitioned into this year.

I didn't give you a 2013 Christmas recap like I usually do each year.. things have just been too busy. I spent most of my time quilting and even then, I still haven't finished some of my pre-Xmas projects. I've also been working and writing since this past November and let me tell you I could use a vacation!

Things in the trophy shop are alright.. my boss went away again to someplace hot and I was dealing with the shenanigans of customer service again. Thankfully my coworkers are great *respect to the UT crew especially the after dark bunch* and we pulled through with minimal scrapes. If this week has taught me anything, it's that it really pays to be organized, and that you can't trust two things in the world of customer care: technology and customers. Our shop printer broke finally and had to be replaced at the end of the week, and we reached our 100mb storage space on the email- did you know that those still exist? If true.. certain companies (c****o) haven't come into the gigabyte age yet for email storage space. Incredible! The only bonus about technology this week is that I was able to click three times and a new printer was delivered to the shop and 10 clicks and a CD run set up later had it printing and behaving like a good lil' Brother should. Customers on the other hand aren't as easily fixable or replaceable. There's no point trusting them either.. it's like my boss says "nobody dies if  they don't get their trophy on time".  Why bother with setting a pick up date then? You're not go die? Why should I bend over backwards if they're not concerned?

Anyway.. it's been a long January and from the looks of it I'm gonna be hanging 'round the ol' scrap heap a little while longer.. seems no-one wants to hire an English major for a job that barely requires highschool. I need to find full time work though.. guess I just gotta keep trying. They've raised minimum wage were in ont. from 10.25 to $11 but it won't take effect til June. I'm hoping to find full time work for higher pay than that by then. *fingers crossed*

Well I guess that's all for now, Its time to sleep before my usual weekend insanity...

5 masses between now and 9pm Sunday night. Am praying I'll wake up without a voice tomorrow morning but I'm just not that lucky.
