Thrice :: come all you weary lyrics

Come all you weary with your heavy loads
Lay down your burdens find rest for your souls
Cause my yoke is easy and my burden is kind
I’ll take yours upon me and you can take mine

Come all you weary, move through the earth,
You've been spurned at fine restaurants and kicked out of church;
I’ve got a couple of loaves, so sit down at my feet,
lend me your ears and we'll break bread and eat

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Come all you weary, crippled you lay
I’ll help you along you can lay down your canes
We’ve got a long way to go but we’ll travel as friends
The lights growing bright further up, further in

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Rest for your souls

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls
Rest for your souls
Rest for your souls

 nice melons

 i love how each letter represents a fabric- fab. fabulous!
i'll take one of these over a mustache finger tattoo any day
all that we are is the result of what we have thought. if a man speaks or acts with and evil thought, pain follows him. if a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

How to make fried beer

We are cups, constantly & quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over & let the beautiful stuff out.

Why Are You Single? Perhaps It’s The Choice Effect

Why Are You Single? Perhaps It’s The Choice Effect

interesting read. i work at a restaurant, and it's hilarious (and sad at the same time) to see people buckle under pressure of ordering when there are too many options. we have a nice menu, but nothing crazy, but once you throw the specials of the day in there, i watch people physically break down. so the less options the better. this article is a nice example of that, and comes at ya from all angles. enjoy! happy choosing.

just the tip...

being that i am a member of the restaurant industry, and my livelihood is calculated each time some leave a a tip, i am now a big tipper when it comes to anything that involves service. i used to be a "i'll just double the tax" but realizing that just isnt good enough. 20% is ideal, unless that service was absolutely terrible. even then, i still make sure its well deserved. i came across this article, and loved it. check it out, and don't forget to tip your servers :)

what kind of tipper are you?

weekend update....all weekends of 2010 included


Thanks for stoppin by :) so much has happened within the last 6 months, I apologize for not much new material on here, and no items for sale on etsy, but SOON!

I decided to not have internet access at my house/studio so i could fully keep my attention on all things creative, and keep my mind clear. one of the best decisions in terms of cranking out (and selling) sairberry aprons! many other fun projects have been a brewing as well. good things.

my next plan of action is to have a photoshoot with all the fun new aprons i've created and post them on etsy. keep your eyes and ears open for that!

thanks for the love, support, and inspiration!!

all things are yours,

north shore, Oahu!
kara and I purchased relatively last minute tickets to hawaii!! (3 weeks notice..here we go!) and boy did we have a blast! :) stayed at camp erdman (filmed lost cabins there) kayaked, hiked, rode atv, ate poki, family fun days, beach, mai tais, bonfires, wailua bakery, waimea big waves, lived the life of island locals for 10 relaxing fun days!

dirt bike fun!

bright and early, we tried firing up the quad, but alas, dead battery. instead of 4 wheels, i graduated to 2. on a yamaha zx250f dirtbike! :) brandon was an awesome teacher, and what can i say, I'm hooked! this day we cruised around superstition mountain (which is actually the desert) and had a blast!

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
