{how can vampires be so much fun? :)}

i probably never would have bought these books. i got them from a friend of mine who happens to be a 60-70-year-old (i'm terrible at guessing someone's age) lady who's totally into vampires, teenage books and all sorts of movies. :) i would have never guessed that of her. what a fun friend.
anyways, she gave me these books and now i'm hooked. i'm reading the last one at the moment and i'm bummed there's no more of them.
these are the kind of books you don't want to put down as you want to find out what happens next.
not as great as twilight (nothing is! :)) but definately fun to read.
this same author wrote the vampire diaries which are now a tv series. i think these books are better than the vampire diaries ones. yes, i admit it, i read those too. the same friend lent them to me earlier. :)
i bet these will become a tv-series as well.
ps. these books are not creepy.

{true love}

"True love requires action. We can speak of love all day long - we can write notes or poems that proclaim it, sing songs that praise it, and preach sermons that encourage it - but until we manifest that love in action, our words are nothing but 'sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal'*."
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(*1 Corinthians 13:1)

{ :) }

i'm loving this quote at the moment:
"Several years ago I was reading the newspaper when one of my young grandsons snuggled up to me. As I read, I was delighted to hear his sweet voice chattering on in the background.
Imagine my surprise when, a few moments later, he pushed himself between me and the paper. Taking my face in his hands and pressing his nose up to mine, he asked, "Grandpa! Are you in there?"
(Elder Robert D. Hales)
don't forget to be there for the people you love :)
happy long weekend :)

circus themed kid's room by kate dixon

lovely wee summer houses via google image search
swimsuit by juicy couture.
yes please, plus the model's body as well. :)
you should see the huge green & purple bruise i have in my arm. i had the worst bloodtest ever this week. did it ever hurt. my arm was sore for hours afterwards. sometimes you barely feel it. sometimes it's like this.
our front yard looks like it snowed a bit. our bird-cherry tree flower pedals are falling down. too bad the flowers don't last for weeks and weeks. they look so beautiful plus smell nice too.
happy thursday everyone! :)

{some flowers for ya}

i just had to make some. not a clue what i'll do with them. they're doublesided. any suggestions?

vuoden ensimmäinen hellevalitus. pakko valittaa vaikkei saisi. keho ei vaan kestä tätä hellettä (+28C, huomenna +30C). auto on kuin sauna ennenkuin ilmastointi alkaa vaikuttamaan. vaikea löytää energiaa mihinkään. en todellakaan ole mikään helleihminen. minulle riittää +20C ja vähemmänkin täysin. pitää aloittaa hedelmä smoothien teko. ruuaksi grillattua lohta. hellaa ei laiteta päälle ei sitten pakollakaan. :)

ollaan piirrelty
leikitty barbeilla
(minun pukemat barbit :))

ihailtu hanhia
(niitä oli yli 20 läheisellä lammella)
nautittu keväästä (+20C taas)
arvostettu etupihan tuomen kukkia
muokattu valokuvia
valokuvattu pilviä
hypitty tramboliinissa
kiipeilty kiipeilyleikkikentällä
kasteltu kukkia ja pensaita
kitketty rikkaruohoja
syöty kanadan lettuja kermavaahdolla ja mansikoilla/banaanimurskalla
tehty mosaiikkikuvia
leikitty leikkipuistossa
ostettu vaatteita
ja muuta sellaista
kaikkea sitä mahtuukin muutamiin päiviin
we have enjoyed...
playing with barbies
watching canada geese
warm spring weather
admiring bird-cherry tree flowers
taking cloud pictures
photo editing
jumping on a trampoline
making mosaic pictures
playing at a playground
(i don't know why there's a white line in the above picture. it's driving me nuts. too late to change it.)
