the cast list! and coffee . . . :)
































3:25pm

---That, my dear, is a window. :) And frost. Or ice. On the window. My goodness, I'm a friendly, detailed blogger. ;) hahaha

Daddy and I are doing something I haven't done before: our Lifetime tea kettle has an attachment to brew coffee with, [and since Anna took our good ol' Procter Silex coffee maker over to Grammy's house for the weekend] we're brewing the last of my beloved Trader Joe's Bolivian Blend. :)

What a lovely afternoon; Daddy and I are home with a napping Grammy, and Danny is also snoozing on the bed in the other room.

Ha, okay. We really need a cast list now. :)
[And I'm getting less and less afraid of smiley-faces, can you tell?]


So, inbetween: sipping my coffee --it turned out pretty good-- finding the "lost" library card that I used on Monday with Skylar, and running to get Danny from his screaming awakeness of being wrapped tight as a butterfly's cocoon in his blankie curtesy of Rach, Daddy leaving for the farm, Danny coming to me with a disturbed look on his face, hands out covered with coconut oil because Ii wasn't watching him, washing his hands and setting him in front of the Bible story playing on the tube. . . . inbetween all that, I'll introduce you to the main, important, lovely people in my life . . .

Daddy: he's my Daddy, and he's a farmer. He likes my coffee, he likes my focaccia bread. And I love him. :)
~
Mommy: she's my Mom, a SAHM and everything else under the sun--she wears a lot of hats, several of which don't include: . . . um, nevermind. :) Obviously, I love her, too. :)
~
Anna: my older sister, nanny to next door childrens, awesome main cook of the household, middle-of-the-night-conversationalist about deep and shallow things alike, I love her. :)
~
Ben: older brother, carpenter, pen-maker, totally rad brother. And quite handsome. :) I love him, too.
~
Me: midling, that's me. :) scribbler/writer, painter, guitarist, blogger, FBer, libraryer, (ha, i just created a new word! tell me I'm not brilliant.) bla-di-bla-di-bla. (quoting from the Sheriff in the BBC Robin Hood, haha)
~
Caleb: paintball and airsoft guru, remote-control freak, pretty cute. He would kill a squirrel if he knew I just posted that on a blog, for heaven's sake. ;) I love him, too. (wow, i love a lot of guys, haha)
~
Rachel: muffin-maker, Danny's main playmate and toter. She takes him everywhere around the house with her. :) She's very...unique. And yes, I love her.
~
Lydia: jewelery-maker, with more than a little pinch of tom-boy. {her bracelets are my main staple, and she makes awesome necklaces, all with stretchy thread and beads} She's a cutie pie. and I love her.
~
Danny: sweetie, babbler, adopted child. No, actually not technically. :) His mom is a single mom. We've been watching him a few times a week ever since he was like 10 months old, and so therefore obviously he's adopted. ;) hahaha
~
Skylar: story writer, acedemic who-knows-what, flirting addict, the other (funky) sister I never had. She used to be quite a fixture in our family, living next door for the past 5 years or so, but now that she's moved away and is going to a different high school altogether, we won't see much of her until she gets her drivers license. Normally we go on walks to the library with any number of the sisters listed above, but that's changed.
~
Grammy: I love her. She lives in a world of her own sometimes, skips words or mixes them up sometimes, is quite moody sometimes, {like me, haha} but goodness we all love her. :) She's lived with us ever since my 17th birthday two years ago. Life changed then, and, like life has a penchant to do, a lot of things have changed a lot in the space of time since then. Heck, yeah. We all have changed. But in the end, life is still good, it's hard but awesome, and above all, Jesus is with us through it all, and we live to honor Him.
~
Justin: engineer, daddy, joker, youth group leader, my other big brother. Every year we do ministry together at a conference; us on music and them speaking. It's always buckets of fun rooming together!!! hahaha
~
Sarah: organizer, mommy, fashionista, and the resident biggest sister to all of us. She's the one who told me black and brown didn't go together. She's the one who now tells me my outfit is adorable. She's Justin's wife, and they're amazingly sweet.
~
Eliyah: busy, blonde, the almost-crawling definition of cute, she is Justin and Sarah's little darling, almost a year old. We loves them all. ;)
~
Nathan: my brothers fellow paintballer, training in the Air Force, eater of all our different kinds of soups. Until October last year, he was a pretty steady fixture (haha) in our family, coming to hang out and eat dinner almost once a week. Ironically, 99% of the time it was some kind of soup, so we started joking about it. We write letters, and talk about soup, coffee, and life in general.
~
Ito: neighbor boy, Lyddie's playmate, sweetie. He's been around a few years, and he's quite cute. He plays Legos and goes sledding and all that fun kiddie stuff with my last three siblings. Oh, what a life. :)


So there's the cast list. I have to go get ready for church soon, seeing as it's 5:04pm, but I'll be sure to try to blog more consistently. {haha}

Like, wow, this is a record: 4 blog postings in one day? Yes, I know. I rock. ;)
Ya'll have a wonderful Wednesday evening.

{No, I'm not southern, but I do like my green tea kind of more than a little bit sweet, and yes I like putting accents on, in type and voice. So there. You know something new about me. :)}

I love the cast list! It is sooo cute! I'm gonna miss seeing you every time I went to Skylar's. :(

beka said...

Yep, same here. :( Oh well. Choices, choices. Darn it. :) But yes, it was sooo much fun writing the cast list up. hehe :)

LeAnna said...

This was fun to read! Four posts in one day, yes, you rock!

beka said...

:) Thanks, Leanna. It was fun, but will probably be kinda rare. Well...maybe. ;) haha

Flirting adddict??? That's a little harsh, despite the truth behind it. Hey... I'm doing great here. It's not the same though. I miss running over to your house every few minutes and eating your food when my mom didnt feel like cooking. I miss checking out your brothers when you left for church XD I miss my purple room, the one we spent HOURS painting. Rise Against will never be the same to me again. And I miss you, of course. Monday just cant come soon enough. Then I'll be back in your all-too-familiar kitchen, with all you guys I love so much.
