here's my random story from yesterday. after the BBQ I was at and church I decided to drive around the lakes in my jeep...top off, music up, ballcap on, off I went. Somehow I ended up driving behind the park police and after about 5 minutes a police car ended up behind me...well, you better believe I was obeying the laws of the road at that point! so tooling around with the law enforcement of mpls was all of a sudden more interesting when the popo in front of me starts flashing his lights, pulls to a stop and gets out of the car to confront some guys with rap music blaring out of their car...so of course I have to stop behind him...top off, music turned way down so I could eavesdrop of course...didn't hear anything but as I was sitting their the cop throws his lights on too and climbs out of his car...so lights in front of me and behind me, cops..guns..power trips...what the..! basically it was a non-event...two seconds after the cop got out they both climbed back into their cars and off we all drove...but you can imagine what someone like myself with an overactive imagination was thinking...pretty much as soon as I could get a chance I turned off the road so I would no longer be sandwiched between these two guys any longer.
And that concludes my adventures.

yesterday I also bought a chimney cupboard for a ridulously good price, it matches my bedroom that I have been slowly trying to get put together perfectly. just lovely!
last night I left church and went to a friends house to help her with a major remodel of her brand new teenager's bedroom...I painted a huge hibiscus flower on the wall that turned out just lovely and helped hang ikea mirrors that look like waves and a few other odd projects. just lovely!
today I went to visit a few people from church who were having a huge yard sale and I found a darling bird house and an old weathered shutter and a window with the glass panes still in it that is distressed...just lovely!
This whole week I have brought a lunch with me to work and walked for half of my lunch hour each day plus I have been drinking water...something I normally don't like...just lovely!
tomorrow I am going scrapbooking and saturday I am going yard sale-ing and have a wedding and a wedding shower to attend...it is going to be just a lovely weekend!
Philippians 4:8 is a lovely verse to read if you are interested!

It reminded me of a funny thing that happened to me in college once. My friend Beth and I were always playing jokes on eachother and others...just a way to pass the time and to get a few laughs at the same time. Well, one morning as I was running to class and still wiping the sleep out of my blurry eyes...a guy I knew fairly well winked at me as we passed in the hall. Well, I was sure I had seen it wrong...he wasn't the type of guy to wink at girls so I thought it must have been a twitching thing or something...well, before long I notice that almost every guy I saw that day would wink at me and then laugh and keep walking...even guys I didn't know. I figured something was up and so I cornered one of them and they told me they had been instructed by their RA to wink at me on this particular day. So I cornered and RA and he said that the assistant to the dean of men had left a message on all the guy RA's voicemail about the winking and to spread the word. So I cornered the assistant to the dean of men and he informed me that my friend Beth had convinced him to send out the message about winking at me. From that day on I was nicknamed Jamie Baldwink.
