Mixed Bag, Mixed CD and more

So after one day and a half; medical checks over, all tests concluded, the doctor signs me a clean bill of health and proceeds to add that I have poor taste in music. This assumption is based on the fact that my favourite song is a hymn from the Methodist Hymnal. Last I heard, it's a free country and if my favourite song happens to be a hymn, what is so odd about that? I listen to all kinds and types of music; even in languages I don't understand, it just so happens I love the words of the hymn.
In heavenly love abiding,
no change my heart shall fear.
and safe in such confiding,
for nothing changes here.
the storm may roar without me,
my heart may low be laid,
but God is round about me,
and can I be dismayed?

Wherever he may guide me,
no want shall turn me back.
my Shepherd is beside me,
and nothing can I lack.
his wisdom ever waking,
his sight is never dim.
He knows the way He's taking,
and I will walk with Him

Green pastures are before me,
which yet I have not seen.
Bright skies will soon be over me,
where darkest clouds have been.
My hope I cannot measure,
my path to life is free.
My Savior has my treasure,
and he will walk with me.  
Words: Anna Laetitia Waring, 1850

I love the smell of rain- I love it when it is mixed with that of freshly cut grass- I love it when it falls on dusty ground and it brings up the smell of earth mixed with rain- That said, I repeat, I love the smell of rain.

Someone tell me why it rains when I leave my umbrella at home. Please? I have had my handy brolly in my handbag since the rainy season started and never had a chance to use it- today, I change my handbag and did not bother to take the brolly, then it rains. Have I told you I love the smell of rain?

Remember the mixed CD I am creating? I haven't updated the list in awhile because I have been quite lazy (it would have been so much easier to say I have been busy), plus, I have a whole lot of CD's to listen to since I can't remember the track number of the song I want (mp3s are so much easier, *sign*). I am about to take a load of CD's from friends to listen to and make selections too. Anyone care to do some shortlisting for me? It will be appreciated very much. So that's it on the mixed CD front.

Since I am healthy and all that, I take up a new appointment in October(so great). I just hope my new environment will be nice since I am moving from the private sector to the public sector(civil servant, y'all. :))

Enjoy these pictures of stickers pasted on vehicles.
