il neige

I made huge tissue paper snowflakes as it was snowing outside. I love the huge flakes we get here. I wish I could catch a few in a jar and keep them like cotton balls.

it's all too much

this song is stuck in my head. really tangled in there. blue meanies are a little creepy. for the song, >> to around 4 minutes

It's all to much
It's all to much

When I look into your eyes, your love is there for me
And the more I go inside, the more there is to see

It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around you
Everywhere, it's what you make
For us to take, it's all too much

Floating down the stream of time, of life to life with me
Makes no difference where you are or where you'd like to be

It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around here
All the world is birthday cake,
So take a piece but not too much

Sail me on a silver sun, for I know that I'm free
Show me that I'm everywhere, and get me home for tea

It's all to much for me to see
A love that's shining all around here
The more I am, the less I know
And what I do is all too much

It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around you
Everywhere, it's what you make
For us to take, it's all too much

It's too much.....It's too much

with your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue
you're too much


I had a LUSH bath bomb with flake glitter inside. it was so beautiful to me. it either floated or sank to the bottom. glittery bathwater seems so magical.

behold the heavenly stuffed pasta goodness:

I made gluten-free ravioli from scratch! successfully! I didn't think it could ever come out right after being discouraged before but this recipe is amazing! it's genius even! stuffed pasta was the biggest casualty of being gluten-free. I have ordered them at Da Luciano and they were so good so I knew I could do it. I just had to get bored and patient enough to try it. it really is so easy to make them. I may even ask for a pasta roller attachment for my Kitchen Aid or ravioli maker for Christmas! I have to do my research and find the best brand. does anyone have any advice on this?
I'm going to try making other pasta from scratch too. maybe even tortellini? I'm feeling super ambitious!

running out of adjectives

The Swell Season created magic last night. They were so full of joy and energy. They were so endearing and charming. Glen told great stories just like any good Irishman. I never wanted it to end. The concert was absolutely extraordinary!

i want pink cotton candy colored hair


i know why

a free bird leaps on the back of the wind
and floats downstream till the current ends
and dips his wing in the orange suns rays and dares to claim the sky.

but a bird that stalks down his narrow cage
can seldom see through his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.

the caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.
