who watches the watchmen?

Stay with me to guide this dream
before they bury me.
I'll be waiting up all night for you
in a nightmare that was made for me.

it's cupcake monday and i'm not going to post pictures of cupcakes. Instead this post is for pix [just because I miss you] the quote underneath reminds me of you- maybe its because this is what we have done together [&what i want to spend more time doing with you]

In the dark they watched us from here beyond the grave.
To bare the mark of His work are the Watchmen of our ways.
That which we feel untrue, if it's me then it isn't you.

in other news: its less than a week until I leave for Durban [researches 'simple and painless ways to break your leg'] also, today i watched the watchmen. Goodness, you're going to have to ask G what I thought of it- although I do agree that the soundtrack was amazing.[kidding]

What you thought once was yours is ours now.

goodnight. sleep tight x

Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.
he is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed.

[happy beautiful sunday. Today is a day for braaing ('i' or 'ii'? darn you afrikaans language) and daydreaming in the sunshine and for studying. bleh]

By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place;
by his knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew. -

a winters tale

Friday morning - i love study days; you get to wake up late, mill around, make lovely breakfasts,go for a run, watch all the movies you have saved on pvr, read. Anything but study
[some pretty friday pictures]

In two weeks time its ministry week again-this year I'm going to Durban- I'm super excited about it. But the week following that, oh heck no [takes several deep breaths]

[is distracted by the weather] today is one of those winter days where, from inside, it looks like summer outside but the moment you go outside your face goes numb from the cold.

listening to: adele [a new obsession]
eating: my third orange this morning
painting: my nails dark red, sitting in the sunshine
feeling: happy [im seeing G later and really,
to see this much sunshine in winter in capetown would make anyone happy]

peace out x

beautiful things

[one of] the best feelings in the world: finishing an exam & leaving & feeling like you can breathe again (even if you have an exam the next day)

when I've finished an exam I "celebrate" even if that just involves,as it did today, sleeping. I slept for a solid amount of time, waking up [in my mini-coma] to shove handfuls of sour cream&chives flavoured popcorn into my mouth and then retreating back into my was a good afternoon.
[the most amazing cupcake]

in other news, the most shocking thing happened to me today. sad really- for years i have been so upstanding about the type of shoes that i wear but today that all ended. today i wore ugg boots-infact im wearing them now. I feel like i'm letting a lot of people down but i can't bring myself to take them off [and they match my brown wool dress so nicely]maybe ill get a pair and secretly wear them around the house.
