Random jottings of a deranged mind.

I realised I haven't blogged for a little while now.  Perhaps life has just been too busy, although maybe not if the quote I read this morning is anything to go by.  "Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein." — H. Jackson Brown Jr.    Umm, interesting.

In the past month I restarted Driving Lessons after a 18 year break!  I am nervous but they are going OK; yesterday I got to drive on the open road.  I pray that the fear will go and I will actually enjoy the experience.  And as the Veggie Tales once sang maybe this will be my theme song for 2010 and beyond:  On the road again, just can't wait to get on the road again, the life I love is makin music with my friends and I can't wait to get on the road again.

I also decided to dye my hair- I had lost any tinge of red that I had.  I took the plunge and went to the hairdressers.  However, me being me and not having a clue what I was doing ended up with a dark reddish colour and not the copper that would have lightened up my barnet.  Never mind, I like it and can try for a different colour next time.  (Please, if I start talking about getting a tattoo or a body-piercing take me out and shoot me!) 

Alan and I are going to our first Ball on Saturday night.  It is for a Charity that is close to the heart of some of our friends.  I have managed to borrow a dress, scarf and bag but have had to buy the jewellery to go with it.  I will hopefully get a pair of suitable shoes this afternoon.  If not, I could always wear my Dr Martaens with the dress!

Last year I read through the Bible from beginning to end and wanted to something different in 2010.  I am reading Oswald Chamber's 'My Upmost for His Highest' and am finding it good so far.  I still need to find something that will make me think more but this is a good book to start with. 

So what else has this year brought so far:  More exercise, healthier meals (which have led to their being a little less of me), a more relaxed approach to life and not so much worrying, 2 daughters who are growing well in every aspect of life and a deeper appreciation and love for my husband.

I like your hair to and have been thinking about going reddish to - but it looks good on you.
