This coming 2014, one of the projects that I wish to undertake is to create miniatures. I do not know if a dollhouse is possible but I surely want to create more miniature food and maybe later, kitchen utensils. My daughter suggested that I create miniature things too for other rooms – a subtle way of saying that I should indeed build a dollhouse. And for the music room, she said that a miniature version of a tom delonge guitar at musicians friend will be perfect. Well let’s see. I surely have a long-list of projects that I want to do but it is the motivation and perseverance is what I surely lack. LOL! Hopefully, I can get a project or two done next year so wish me luck!
In between our chat about depression, struggles and worries as parents, detox opiate and other problems, my friend and I remembered that it’s Thanksgiving. And even though we don’t celebrate it here, we have to remember how blessed we have been and that we are ought to be grateful, thus, we started to count our blessings. Surely, life may sometimes be tough but certainly, our blessings outnumber our challenges and problems. And for me, I am very blessed with family, loved ones and friends. They surely top my gratitude list.
Now that the Christmas season is just around the corner, my daughter already made a wish list – a long wish list. It includes a lot of books which is expected, some toys, pens (she is my daughter after my own heart after all!), new set of linens and a fender dg-8s acoustic pak at guitar center. Apparently, all these rock star parties we have been attending inspired her to become a rock star! Haha! Anyway, her Dad suggested we buy her a ukelele for now and see if she really likes to play stringed instruments.
A week or two ago, it was declared that the cold season has finally started. As a tropical country, our weather does not become really cold that we’ll be needing heated jackets but just the same, it is an anticipated season for many of us. So, when the news came, some of us already brought out our jackets and long sleeves. However, just as I have dreaded, the weather is relatively warm – just like last year. I can still remember how hot it was that it felt like summer! But then, it got really cold when the year began, right after the holiday season and yes, I complained too. Haha! Anyway, this global warming has really affected almost everything and it is frightening. And we, as stewards of this earth should do our share to stop it.
Sometimes, it can be challenging to come up with catchy and fun Oktoberfest party invitation wordings. That is why it is good to know that there are online shops like www.Invitations-Shoppe.com that offers the largest selection of most stylish and trendy invitation stationery cards online. Here is one cool example:
I ordered our party invitations for Octoberfest last year and remember that the proof was emailed to me within one hour as it was a a business day. And they even allowed me to make unlimited changes for free! There is no doubt that I am buying from them again this year.
The long weekend just got longer as there is a suspension of classes in our city due to a typhoon. I am happy because it means I can sleep in but my daughter is happier and it is not surprising. Gone are the days when it disappoints her when classes are suspended. However, it is exams week so she needs to review her notes and practice her Math skills. I, on the other hand,needs to work too.
