Life is Wonderful!


I have found a song that I think is my favorite. Life is Wonderful by Jason Mraz. I don't think I ever really had a favorite song before, and I'm not sure if I do now. But I listened to it four times in a row as soon as my friend told me about it. Then I listened to it four times in a row yesterday. And I listened to it three times in a row today, and I want to go listen to it again.

I'm reading Oliver Twist. I've been reading Oliver Twist for about the past year. But now I really am. I'm into it. I'm loving it. Dickens is really fascinating if you remember you are reading Dickens. I love that the movie was different from the book. Usually I hate that, and usually I read the book first. But this time, I watched the movie before I got half way through, and I love that I don't know what is going to happen next, because they cut this part of the book out of Oliver!

We leave this weekend for a long trip to Tennessee to see relatives and South Carolina for the NCFCA National Tournament, which my brothers qualified for. I'm really excited. I'll also be gone for a while. When I come back, I'll be done reading Oliver Twist. When I come back, I'll have listened to "Life is Wonderful" 13, 487, 904 times.

I am newly in love with yellow.

Excepting the first two pictures, which were found on the internet and my windowsill, respectively, these pictures were taken from my Oliver Twist which I purchased at an antique shop a few years ago. Title pages aren't what they used to be. Is a four-leafed clover still lucky if you find it an hundred years after it was picked? Who is the Thorke Thimble Club? And what costs $3.00?

Life is wonderful! Wheeeeeeee!


  1. You have a way cuter windowsill than I do :) And your dickens book looks like a great buy with lots of character! I once tried to read Our Mutual Friend...I "read" it for about a year and then gave up. Perhaps I should pick it up again and see what wonderful things I discover!

    I am well on my way to listening to Life is Wonderful four times in a row...

  2. Hi!

    Yes, 1 Cor. 13 is a beautiful passage, I agree. It is also a passage that I need to get a grasp on! I'm afraid that sometimes I am not very loving. :(

    Yellow is a gorgeous color! I just bought some pretty yellow shoes, and I can't wait until I can wear them.

    Have a very bright, very cheerful day!

  3. I _love_ that bedroom. It makes me so, so happy. And the flower is so pretty and bright. And I've found four-leafed clover in several old books. :)
