To watch or not to watch

Just done watching The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008). This movie is a type of fairy tale medieval movie is quite a few in a series dating back years ago. Basically the movie as far as I could see was trying to regain the kingdom of Narnia back into the hands of the creatures of the forest. The only thing that I couldn't understand is why they would have a human as their king instead of one of the creatures. But if you don't want to have your kids see a lot of violence then don't take them to see this movie. I really enjoyed the animation myself even though the battles were constantly on going in the movie. All in all I like the movie just a little tough to follow.

How is it like to ride a snow mobile at night

We were out tonight for a snow mobile ride. It's the first time that Daddy brought me and Jarred to the woods which find it so different. We usually ride on daytime. Tonight it was snowing and it is so neat to see the snow in the headlights. Not a lot of wind so it was a nice ride. That cool air will surely wake you up. We started to go down the long hill and Jarred being he is sitting in front says weeeeee eeeee eeeee, hold on! Daddy feels Jarred's hands tightened around his legs as he holds on more. He loves the ride and that makes him a born New Yorker.

The wonders of antiques

My husband inherited an antique Damascus sewing machine from his grandmother. I was happy and sad when I looked at it. The sewing machine just sits in one corner and no one is paying attention to it. On the other hand I'm happy thinking that I can make it run.

As I look into the belt it looks ratty and falling apart from old age and years that it hasn't been used. It needs a belt replacement but then again I was so excited to try it now to see if aside from the belt being useless if there's anything more that could be replaced.

So I took my jogging pants belt and tie it on both ends and replace it to the old sewing machine belt. I was so ecstatic when I made it work that way.The machine runs fine only a little bit of cleaning to do. I also oiled every nooks and crannies to condition the sewing machine.

My husband was laughing when he saw my jogging pants belt that I put into the sewing machine and me using his good old grandma's sewing machine. I said hey it works and I'm glad about it.

Have you ever heard of a plant most commonly known as silver dollar?

Winter, spring, summer, and fall comes and goes. The first four words reminds me of the song "you've got a friend" but no this post is not about that song. I love plants and watch them come alive in spring. So beautiful it is to live in this world surrounded with natural beauty.

I have never seen a beautiful plant commonly known as silver dollar in my country until my mother in-law gave me a dried arrangement and seeds to sprinkle in our backyard. She had so many of them growing in her garden and every year she sold a lot of them in the market. It's funny how many people ask them for more. The seeds that she gave me have grown about half foot until winter made them disappear from the ground. I was upset about what happened to my plant but I am hoping for the best that this spring they will show up again.

If you were curious how it look like you can easily spot them. Who knows maybe you have it in your backyard too. :-) The plant has a deep purple flower and has a dollar-like seed pods. When dried, these pods with seeds make attractive decorations. Check out two year old silver dollar plant decoration that my mother-in-law gave me. Very pretty..

Winter : coldest time of the year?

Yes, that's true. Winter may be the coldest time of year but what's hot today everywhere from TV, magazine, newspapers and many other media information is how you handle your new years resolution. One of the hottest this year is exercising which benefit personal health. Making resolutions for the New Year is an excellent way to set up personal and professional goals. My New years resolution is to keep physically fit. It's so funny when my husband is teasing me how my belly is sticking out sometimes specially after eating. (hehe) After giving birth I admit I get lazy to exercise and now I just need to get rid the few pounds that I gained.

What to expect in winter driving in New York

I bet a lot of you have heard of brown outs and black outs but, have you heard of a white out? Coming home the other night, we experienced high winds with tree limbs falling all over the road. Along with freezing rain and then it started snowing. Do you know that snow is mesmerizing? As it hits the headlights of our car, you have to keep on turning away and re-focusing your eyesight. And then across wind comes up blowing snow so it completely blinds you. I feel the cars slow down because visibility is about twenty five feet until the cross wind goes away. This is a true white out. It's so bright in the headlights that it's blinding.

Have you seen the show on monday night?

Have you seen the Bizarre Foods show hosted by with Andrew Zimmern? It's amazing that we come to our own country with our own specialty food. I could never even try what this guy tried. From fried cricket to pig's brain. They even had one lady slicing up a stingray mixing it up with garlic and onion like it's a stew. I think my main favorite one is where they crack open what looks to be bamboo tree and take this long live worms out of them and he sucks it down like spaghetti. The cricket's he said were really crunchy salty and hot. My stomach is doing flip just thinking about it but all and all it's an interesting and fun show to watch.

Let's Play Pretend

Last night Jarred, our two year old grabbed the flash light and shine it on mommy's mouth. He was indulged in his little world pretending like a doctor. He said "say ahhh mama, say ahhh" he goes "ewwwww mama". It's a good thing that Jarred thinks he is suppose to brush his teeth at least once an hour. He just likes the taste of the toothpaste. At any rate, this is good for us and shows good habit and will make his teeth last a lifetime.

Candy Counter

All kids are explorer by nature. They love searching high and low. Jarred is now two years and four months old and on this stage is where he likes to reach and climb on things. Locking things up that are dangerous makes me feel more secure but he still looks for the candy in the counter. He know what he wants. Good thing mommy and daddy were there to supervise.
