Blogger debut

I'm sitting here feeding J. Both kids are entranced by Transformers (1996) on TV. Once they are done, we have to send L to K. J & I have "Small World" class - something like a mommy and me class. Gosh, I sure hope J will get over this separation anxiety from me so I can stick him in a school.

These past few weeks:

1. A friend told me abt raw diet. So, I have decided to try it out but due to tight schedules, I can only eat raw salads for lunch and dinner. Anything in btwn will have to be quick and easy. The salads that I ate in the past were mostly "american" type - cheeses and creamy dressings over bland vegies which I didn't like. However, I've since discovered the world of fresh herbs and other flavorings that do not involve the cow. Oh, and avocado seems to taste a lot better now than before. Perhaps I'm getting old. Here is a recipe of the salad:

Organic herbal mix from Earth Bound
1 avocado
dates or nuts
mint
basil
cucumber
Need to try to add: grape tomatoes, shallots, pine nuts...

Dressing: squeeze some lemon over the avocados, drizzle of honey & olive oil, soy sauce. Sometimes I would add slivers of seaweed & sesame seeds

This could just be a phase or it could be permanent. Whatever it is, I know I feel more alert consuming pure vegetables than my regular diet of rice, meat and vegie combi.

2. Juicing
Supposedly carrot & spinach combi is good for asthma & eczema. I've yet to see any improvements. Book recommended by a friend:
Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices: What's Missing in Your Body? (Paperback)
by N. W. Walker, Dr. Norman W. Walker

I was desperate to try juicing b/c nothing is working for L. He's still dependent on his inhalers. I know alot of modern thinking parents who believe that you can control asthma through asthma meds. I agree you can do that but my goal is to be free of them. I cannot imagine life being tied to these medications esp. when they produce side-effects of long term usage.

His dr. wants him to go on Singulair. Found these websites abt the side effects.

http://www.askapatient.com/viewrating.asp?drug=20829&name=SINGULAIR

Since L cannot tell me if he experiences these symptoms, I'm not too inclined towards this product. I will stick to flovent and albuterol for now. And just pray that we find some alternative method of managing the dang asthma.

He's already staying away from his food allergens but it's the environmental triggers that are uncontrollable. Perhaps I ought to make him wear a breathing mask ...

So, I'll keep juicing until I get tired or my hands crack from constant washing.

3. Crocheting. Thanks to a close friend's gift of knitted scarf, she has revived my crocheting hobby. I made 5 scarfs thus far and given them to a few friends. Surprisingly scarves really help keep you warm. I go around the house in a single long sleeve t-shirt and a scarf. W/o the scarf, I'd need a sweater. Also discovered crocheting with thick yarns and big hooks really fun and well, quick. heh ...

4. Ants ... they always manage to find the teeniest of cracks to crawl through. Spray the openings with RAID or any insecticide and then spray soap water (or any cleaning solution) on the ants to kill them. Or, you can just stomp on them. Good therapeutic exercise.

I've ever liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to type of rightful spend in days of yore staring at it as a cut of catharsis.

The laser slight display with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather unique tiny that my friends have also been most amused with.

But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but virtuous save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also bonny amused next to it. Off it's meet to have fun toys on all sides the blood so that you can pull out the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you count prepare scoff or receive changed. The gyroscope is inseparable such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a taper exposition with red, downcast, and unripened colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser light show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that great but decorous sufficiency to consider any supplementary roomer to the house. The gyroscope is red and raven, making it look extraordinarily cold, and to some macho with that dragon imprint.

The music dismount attack show gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also utilized this gyroscope to their heels my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the b & b room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser insight register produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the light effects created a sort of romanticist atmosphere. She loved it, at near the going, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my oversight shopping placement for all gifts and ideas in behalf of fancied occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser go down playing gyroscope can maybe be a superb Christmas give-away looking for the toddler or even the humour! Alternatively, the gyroscope can simply be a polite summation to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can take it as given placing it near the Christmas tree and perchance spinning it when guests reach in the house.
