Rainforest Trees At The Taiping Lake

My last trip away from home was the Singapore getaway in the middle of September, seems like a long time to me though it was only around two months ago. So when my friend suggested to go Taiping for a short trip, I didn't hesitate, after all, Taiping is just less than an hour away from Ipoh...



I started the journey early on Saturday and we had a nice stroll at the Taiping lake... due to the rain, the plants and the trees glitter and the lake is not "drought looking"…

This is one fear I don't think I'll ever conquer

5:45am



That's what time it is right now and I'm as close to wide awake as I can get with less than an hour and a half of sleep. 



I love the weather.



Rain?



Love it!  Walking in it. Sitting on a porch watching it. The scent of it. Everything about it!



Snow?



As long as I don't have to go…

Some Dreams Are Just To Bizarre To Explain

Sitting around with Matthew discussing prescription drug commercials and wondering about the various side-effects.



So many to choose from.  How do the patients know which to select? 




I mean, that's why they list them,…

Going on a Nature Walk

Step 1: Collection



On Friday, I handed two cellophane bags to my kids and we took a walk.  They each began collecting small items from nature.  Jellybean was way less selective than Buddy. She also listened better to the instruction: "Don't dump your bag until I get a picture!" …

Fear and Beyond

Last week I called the instructor at the local Ropes Course. We were set to attend with our homeschool group in a few days, and I realized that although it may be interesting to watch the older kids climb, zip and whirl, it'd be more fun if my two oldest could participate fully.



The answer I got: The harnesses can be fit on very young children. It's more about their personal will and interest.



So, we woke early a few days later, tossed our picnic in the car, and drove as…

Oh What A Night

We sat down last night to watch the movie "The Green Hornet". I wasn't too sure of this movie and hadn't really seen any previews or advertising for it. That to me is usually a red flag. If they don't promote it much, chances are it's not that good of a movie. Having Netflix, we opted to give it a try and added it to our queue. Was that a wise decision? Hmmmm.



About half way into the movie, our attention was caught by flashing lights coming from outside. We couldn't see exactly what it… Continue

Cursed with Parsel Ped

Yes, like parseltongue (from Mr. H. Potter). My oldest and I seem to be gifted with parsel ped. Infliction or gift of the foot, otherwise known as the ability to tread so lightly that you almost step on snakes (and sometimes lizards) during the heat of snake season. Which is definitely upon us now.…

How to Make Sunshine

Today we rose to a sun that was trying it's darndest to burn through the mist that shrouds the redwoods. It'd peek through momentarily, lighting up the whole living room, and within minutes hide again beyond the mist.



Finally at ten o'clock the…

Oh, the Bugs

This is our first year at our home on the Lost Coast. And our first taste of the seasons has been memorable.



Fall was splendid. The mosquitoes dwindled and finally disappeared. The gigantic Laurel out back dropped its leaves in great heaps. The light green moss on our wrap-around porch turned bright green with the moisture in the air. And the weather grew colder. Suddenly.



And then with Winter's arrival. Cold. Frigid. Frost. Ice. Snow. Wait, we didn't know it snowed here. Not… Continue

A Whole Lotta Gardening

Life has been full lately.



A beautiful, tasty, diverse kind of full.



But, so full that some afternoons all I want to do is nap. Curl up on top of my clean bed, babe in arms, and drift off. Not for a long while, just a half hour.



Alas, Reality Check:

Babe is hardly a babe anymore. He's 1 already. Wah!

Babe only takes one short nap a day. One very short nap.

And, twenty minute nap usually occurs before the afternoon lethargy hits.…

Seashore Learning

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. (Yes, pictures like this one and that one are from that bee-u-ti-ful city.) But, in addition to my dear and loving family and friends there, it’s the ocean that holds my heart. San

Diego’s ocean simply beckons one to interact. And not…

Science in Our Driveway

How cool to have a science experience just drop in our driveway...literally! I was pulling our driveway safety net out so the kids could play and I saw a cicada shedding its shell! Very cool especially because we had just watched a video about insects a couple of days ago and learned about how some insects grow this way. I tried to capture it in…
