I was thinking about the word grow for the scavenger hunt.
When I was pondering this word I thought of 2 things:
how nicely the flowers have grown through the frost and flooding
and how my cats have grown up and grown old.
So my pictures for May 23 are of:
the flowers beside my house
Theo on one of the first days we got him
and Tom and Theo last fall (before the never ending snow we were cursed with!)

They look so grown up and I can't believe flowers can grow in Manitoba this year... our rhubarb is also ginormous! I don't really like rhubarb though... its good in cake and jam but. yuck!

Today is tuesday for all you who didn't know that. It feels like it should be friday, I wish it was. Maybe I don't lol I don't know, this week wont be a very hard/ busy week but still... This morning when I was eating breakfast my mom came to me and was like,
"Jess I will be at school at 3 o'clock so be ready!"
"Ready for what?" I replied, clearly confused, partly due to the fact that it was 8 in the morning and also because I had no idea what she was saying or why she wanted to pick me up. She just stared at me probably thinking LORD help this poor child, because clearly I was loosing it. lol Not my fault I don't look at the calender! Anywho, so she tells me I have an optometrist appointment so we are leaving at 3 SHARP. lol

I LOVE the optometrist they have such interesting things to read on their walls! They even have a slide show about your eyes and how they focus light inside for you to watch while you wait and its cool. They show you what happens in your eye if your far sited, if your near sited, if you have an astigmatism, which I do have so... INTERESTING! I think that would be an easy job and it would be super fun! I love looking at peoples eyes... so pretty.

That's the first thing I look at/ notice when I meet someone their eyes and their teeth! lol That sounds kind of weird but its true. Its probably because I make eye contact when I talk to people. I hate it when people don't look at you when they talk to you. Its very annoying!

Now on to a slightly more exciting topic, I know its hard to beat the optometrist, but here we go! ROBERT PATTINSON! Mmm... sigh... LOL ok. So hes hot, hes famous, he acts and get this, HE SINGS. lol He says he is book for like the next year because he is composing music for a movie and hes making New Moon ( the second movie in the twilight series). He has some other movies out too How to Be and Little Ashes.

How to be is an indie film made in the UK. Its comedy and looks like it would be a GREAT movie. Its about a guy (Robert) who wants to be a musician but it isn't working to well for him, so he hires an author of a self help book to come and help him get his life together. The previews look really good!
lol I think I'm in a quarter life crisis. Wait how long does that mean I'll live... 68... only... hum that's to short lol ok I'm having a pre-quarter life crisis lol. ( I don't know what to do with my life after I graduate). Then there is the movie Little Ashes. Here he is an artist, Salvador Dali, and there is something about a war and I don't quite know whats going on but I think he's gay and... I don't quite know. I showed my art teacher this preveiw and she was like "Salvador Dali!!" and so she wants to see it because he was like a famous artist or something, but I don't really know (the only reason I'd want to see this movie is because of Robert Pattinson). HAPPY TUESDAY!!

ok so here are my chicken pictures....

These two are from the Hutterites (its the same chicken) mmmmmmmmmmm

Then there are yummy chicken breasts, good for stir-fry!!!

and then chicken strips!

I was going to take a picture of real chickens, but I was to afraid of getting wood ticks. I know their out and their saliva has all sorts of diseases. Like lime disease and so I decided against it, but I do know people who have chickens... they are cool yet VERY evil creatures! Waaaahahahaha. That is why all my chicken is dead.

the definition of love

This is a poem by Andrew Landon. It is kind of wordy and I think I could re wright it and make it better but then it wouldn't be mine and it wouldn't be his ... so it would be nothing I guess. It is really sweet and I hope my husband to be will some day read this ( if I get married) because its true. Even if you think this poem is written bad ( I don't but I know people who do) read it, please. There are some REALLY good lines and phrases it there!

Love is a funny thing.
You expect it to be easy.
You expect it to be a world of roses
and laughs and perfect moments
that you find only in movies.

You expect her to
always say the right thing, and
always know exactly how you feel,
or exactly how to react to it.
You expect her to calm you down when you're yelling
or to chase you when you run away.

You expect so much
that you feel entirely, and utterly defeated
when something doesn't exactly match up to all your plans.

But that's the thing.
Love isn't a plan.
It doesn't have a certain beginning
and it certainly has no end,
or a visible finish line to those deeply in it.

Love happens;
it is so incredibly messy.
People around you can't comprehend
why you do the things you do,
or why you fight so hard
for something that seems to cause you so much pain.

Because simply, they can't see.
They can't see the invisible ring of insanity
that surrounds you when you're in love.
It's inconvenient
and painful
and devastating at times,
but we can't live without it.

What you don't learn is how hard love is.
How much work it takes.
How much of ourselves we have to put into it.
How it isn't worth it until we are complete and utter idiots about it.

Love isn't her calming you down when you yell.
It's her yelling, just as loud, just as hard,
right back at you, right in your face
to wake you up and to keep you grounded.

It isn't her or him bringing you roses everyday
or cute things that make your relationship appear more presentable.
It's right after a long fight,
that drains the life and bones right out of both of you,
and yet her or him showing up at your door the next morning anyway.

It's not her saying all the right things
or knowing exactly how to handle you.
So no, it's not her caressing your hair
and telling you everything is going to be okay.
It's her standing there,
admitting she's just as scared as you are.

You have to remember that with love,
you're not the only one involved.
You've unknowingly put your life, your heart
into the palm of an others hand and saying,
Do what you will.
Mash it into a million pieces, mash it into meat.
Or forget I ever handed it to you in the first place.
Just as long as you have it.

It makes reality invisible
and it erases all the lines
that we shouldn't cross.
Because love isn't about fencing ourselves in;
feeling safe,
feeling sure about the future.

It's about scaring the shit
out of every nerve in our body,
but pushing forward anyway.

Because all the fighting
and all the tears
and all the uncertainty
is worth it.
And it's a hell of a lot better,
than being 100% happy without someone to show us that
there is a world of a difference
between feeling 'happy'
and feeling whole.


So I haven't blogged in a while. I guess I've been a little busy, but nothing has happened. Lets see, I got a job at Co-Op as a cashier YAY! now my mom will stop bugging me lol and I'll get more then $5 an hour like i did for babysitting. Actually most times she gave me more any way... My beloved iPod drowned and so now its not working and that makes me want to cry... I always listen to my iPod... if you look at all the pictures I take of my self I'll be listening to my iPod probably 70% of the time. So this loss hit hard... I'm hoping it works when it drys out... you never know... I guess I'll keep you posted... I didn't do the scavenger hunt word UP. I did think about it though. There are SO many ways to use the word UP I didn't know how to choose what angle to go from. This weeks word is Chicken lol I wish I would have known that one day sooner... I would have taken a picture of supper yesterday... mmmmmmmmmmmm Chicken!! lol We buy Hutterite chicken its the best... lol they make good cheese too Mmm ;) lol Anyway that's it for now!

I got a job
I broke my iPod
I need to take a picture of chicken
I summed my whole blog today into 3 lines!
(They probably would have fit on one though)
