My Type of Beauty

There is such a variety of beauty in this world ... some types of beauty appeal to some people while others feel attracted to a different sort. Well in case you wonder what really pulls my heart strings take a look through Twig Hutchisons portfolio. I felt enveloped in soft and mellow clouds of bliss while flipping through her classic website.

Monastery Work Day 2009

The Clear Creek Monastery annual work day last Saturday was a great success and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time. There were several hundred volunteers from all over (many familiar faces and many new faces). Both my brothers and my dad were leaders - they had many groups stationed all over the monks very large property doing fence and repair work. I helped mostly in the kitchen where we had a large group of women and girls preparing food to feed the masses. Here are some photos from the monks picasa site: See photos

Celtic Spring Band in Pryor OK

Celtic Spring is an amazing family who do irish dance and irish music ... and often at the same time. They are preforming at the Pryor High School in Pryor OK on March 17th at 6:45pm, and I am so excited to be able to see a live performance of theirs! I know of the Elizabeth and her family through Thomas Aquinas College and common friends there. See Celtic Spring Band Tours Tickets are now sold out.
