Little Women

Last night my mom and I went to see the Civic Theatre muscial production of Little Women. I really loved it! The costumes were beautiful, the actors and actresses all had beautiful voices and even though none of the songs were especially memorable, or songs that you'd want to sing outside the play, it was still a wonderful production. As I was sitting there watching, I was thinking how nice it was to be on the receiving end, but at the same time, how much I miss our play Little Women and how I would love to be in another play like it someday!

Somehow I could see each of us in the sisters. If you can remember, there was a scene where Amy burned Jo's story and Jo becomes extremely angry at Amy. I think our fight was much better than theirs. We had so much more emotion and probably, actually scared our audience. Not that they didn't, I just think we did better. If you're wondering, yes I did cry when Beth died. My mom and I sat in the very first row, and I could see the tears in Beth and Jo's eyes. It was very sad.

this post is dedicated to one of my best friends Ruth. she loves to cook and wants to be a chef someday, so i thought i'd post one of my favorite recipes in honor of her. ;-)

three cups of fresh basil leaves
two large cloves of fresh garlic
half a cup of pinecuts, walnuts, almonds or a combination
threefourths cup of fresh-chopped parsley
half a cup of olive oil
one fourth cup melted butter
salt to taste

combine everything in a blender on low, then medium speed. throughly work everything into a smooth paste. toss or spoon onto hot drained pasta.

this recipe is something my family makes a lot of at the end of the summer. my mom grows basil in our garden every year, and my whole family loves it! :-)

Monday was my last day of work. I'm rather sad about it, because momentarily I have no job. I'm still doing estimates for my dad and his business, but I would like to get something else too.

Today at practice we ran all around Butler. We ran for almost an hour. Now my abs hurt. But that makes me happier. I got kinda lazy over the summer about exercising, so now I'm going to try to be really focused.

Biblestudy and Starbucks go well together. Actually, I think having food or drink available makes it easier to talk, no matter what the situaion because then its not quite so formal. Anyway, I've been doing a devotional for young women about finding my place in Christ. And I'm doing studies with Shannon, so far we've done quiet times and prayer. It's been good.

I love my Worldview class. The Divine Comedy's have been going really well. I've actually enjoyed reading and answering all the questions. Hopefully I can keep this attitude going throughout the year!

I'm so ready for fall and cooler weather. I wanted to wear a long-sleeved t-shirt so bad that today I wore one with capri's. I'm sure that's totally aganist fashion rules. But oh well.

And this is a weird post, but I'm having fun writing it.
