LTML29: Life With A Little Girl

I’m going to cheat just a bit this week for Life Through My Lens. You see, I had these pictures that I was going to share with you earlier (like a previous Life Through My Lens post) but I never got around to doing it. I’m going to say that these still count. I’ll be honest here, I was never a girly girl growing up. I wasn’t into jewelry, dolls and all those things girls played with. As I became older, I’ve grown interested in these things, but I don’t throw a fit if I walk to the store without makeup on....

LTML 28: All Aboard!

I did mention that I was a sucker for museums right? Okay, glad that you remember that.  Well, another spot that we always walk by, but never seem to go into is the New York Transit Museum.  This week of: Life Through My Lens, I take my family on a subway adventure ride! I think I have tried to take the kids here at least a few times this year, and then finally I said to myself I’ll just get them packed up and ready to go and tell them when we get there.  That worked! Everyone was excited and I love seeing their...

LTML 27: A Tree In Brooklyn

I love how I meant to post these up last week, but I just never got a chance to do it. Anyway, last week was week 27 of: Life Through My Lens This summer, we’re having a stay-cation for our summer. Since I’ve been in New York City all my life, I figured now it’s the time to check out all the favorite places that I love, and even venture to some places that I have never been before! I would love to travel to other places, but sometimes we just have to make due with what we have!  While entertaining ourselves...

First Signs of Grey….

First Signs of Grey….

It happened. I looked into the mirror and saw a wiry strand sticking up. When did it get here? How long has it been here for? WHY haven’t I noticed before? We all get older right? Grey hair is just part of it. But with dreadlocks, I’m supposed to have more time!! (In my very whiny voice). Breathe in. Breathe out. *I take that grey hair, and wrap it in the nearest dreadlock.* Whew. Crisis averted. No need to call in the national guards. I can go on pretending that I didn’t see it.   I’m guessing that the stray...

LTML26: A Diversion

First, I can’t believe that we are now in week 26 of the year, and I’m in week 26 of my project 52.  Things didn’t turn out the way that I expected, but that’s okay.  Since Linus is out of commission, I don’t mind sharing places that I have gone to with the family. Since it is July, that means home school has started for us.  If you haven’t noticed, I’ve not been that active on the web lately (I’m sure you noticed, because you DO care about me *stares at the screen*)....

LTML25: Seriously Serious

So…Mr. C and I have been talking about getting something new for LittleZ. You see, when your in the home of an older sister, you sometimes are surrounded by girl toys…a a lot. So we wanted to get something special for him. This special gift had special requirements. we didn’t want batteries for it, and we wanted to make sure that he couldn’t choke on it if it broke. We wanted an action figure in all of it’s action-ness (yes, I just made that word up) and we wanted something that he could love. Of course it had to...

5 Things To Do To Move Forward

We’ve heard it said before that we cannot let our past hold us back.  We should look forward, always, and keep our eyes on the prize.  But what about forgiving yourself for your past so that you can move forward? We’ve all made mistakes.  There are things that we’re not proud of, and things that we wished never happened.  Yet, at our moments of weakness and fear, these mistakes creep up and sometimes paralyze us. Ask any parent, we’ve all done something that we wish we didn’t do, or in a...

Sunday Reflection: Difficulties on Focussing on Prayer

“For your heart will always be where your riches are.” – Mathew 6:21 I’ve done this, day after day. I’ve sat myself down, and began to pray, but something always popped in my head. There was always something to do, always something to take care of instead of just praying. So, in my dedicated time to pray, I found myself fighting off the temptation to focus on anything else but my prayers. Praying seems to be the easiest and yet hardest thing for us to do these days. In an age where we want everything now, some of us...

LTML24: Becoming One With The Herd

Almost a year ago, I convinced Mr. C that we should get a wildlife conservation society membership.  I love the idea being part of a bigger picture, and showing my kids that they can do their part to help.  Well we got the membership, and aside from going to the Aquarium and the Prospect Park Zoo, I haven’t been using it much.  All that changed a few weeks ago when I drove to the Bronx Zoo!  Yup I drove there! From my home, it’s about an hour and change on the highway.  Now don’t laugh, but I’m...

Declining Drinks In Your 30s and Beyond

I would have never thought I would end up writing a post about this, but here it goes: I don’t like to drink alcohol.  Aside from the Sacramental wine at church, I don’t partake on the habit. This doesn’t mean that I’m judging you because you do.  I just hope that you don’t judge me too harshly because I don’t. Over the years, I have had my share of people who were “well intentioned” and wanted to make sure that I “fit in” by constantly pointing out that I don’t have an alcoholic beverage in my hand.  Of course these same...
