Water … a precious resource in my country.

Being an island state, the sufficient supply of drinkable and usable is always a concern of the government and people.

Here is my entry.

My little missy is fond of playing in water, whether during her shower or playing by the beach or soaking herself in her tub. This picture was taken while she was having her water-play at a fountain.

Love her expressions while she was enjoying herself. 

Her simple joy.

This week’s WordPress Challenge is Today.

The challenge came with the extra rule that the photo you take should be taken “today.”

Well, I must admit that I was going to do this challenge yesterday.

I didn’t, as it turned out to be a reflective day.

One of my family members has some health concerns

…and I thought a lot about her and her family yesterday.

I was thankful to hear that, bit by bit, she is doing better.

Today, in her honor I took a picture of one of my favorite Willow Tree Angels,

the Angel of Courage.


As a result of my reflections about family

I also decided it was time to do something that I hadn’t done in a while.

I wrote a post a while back where I mentioned that, for a number of reasons, I hadn’t played any music recently.

Well, since yesterday…

1. Oh Oprah, sometimes you just know what’s up. Life’s too short to not surround yourself with people who will encourage you, build you up, push you toward your dreams, and lift you higher.

2. If I could have lunch with anyone in the fashion industry right now, it would hands down have to be Tim Gunn. He always has things to say that make me grin and he wins most fashionable award for an older gentleman. And, like in the above tweet, I love how he can so eloquently say someone’s attire looks bad.

3. Pajamas by 7 = story of our lives. Not only do we always want to be in yoga pants by 7 pm every night we’re home, but I’m pretty positive Char hated the fact that in college I would go to class in sweats ALL THE TIME. I want to hug the person that…

17 Bites

Pay no attention to the dark green swirling around amongst the noodles, the walnuts bumping against the zucchini. There’s cheese! And it’s on top! Slices of beautiful parmesan delicately placed right where a four year old sees first- the top. “It’s green!” he says. “Oh nevermind that silly green. There’s cheese! Do you see it? Not only is it on top, where you can even lift it up with your fingers, but it’s all around the noodles, too! Like macaroni and cheese, except with ‘slurpy noodles’.”

note: “slurpy noodles” = spaghetti, because you slurp them up (sound effects are involved here.)

Skeptically, cheese is picked up.

Slowly, four noodles are slurped.

Even a walnut is licked.

Bread and butter and pear slices follow. One more attempt at a noodle.

Meanwhile, the adults are on their second bowls.

All are happy.

Pasta with Sauteed Greens, Walnuts and Goat Cheese

Talkin' Shit

As I get older I am realizing that I am becoming the creepy old guy that talks about things from the past.  I am 34 years old but my job puts me around a decent amount of people that are 10+ years younger than I am.  I can’t even count how many times a day I have to stop in the middle of the conversation because the person has no idea what I am talking about because it happened before they were born.  Whether its movies, music, fashion, tv shows, cartoons or whatever, I pose this question; Do you remember when…
