LTML32: Not “That” Announcement…

LTML32: Not “That” Announcement…

I’m going through a photo.  I have had no wish to get behind my camera and take pictures (to share). Burnt out / tired out / uninspired…you name it, that’s probably what I’m feeling.  I’m going to work though this rut, because at least I can share what’s going on with me. Since I’ve decided to bring it back to me (and disconnect from a lot of things lately) I’m going to share with you what has been on my reading list lately….   The more I “look” for answers, the...

Back To School Prayer

Back To School Prayer

With everything that has been going on, I have missed my Sunday prayers on the weekend.  I am glad to have this moment to share my prayers with you.  I truly enjoy sharing my prayers with you, and I hope that you can find some comfort in them. This Sunday, my prayer is especially for the children.  Many of them started school, and others will begin in September, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t say a prayer for them!  Please join me in my prayer.   Dear Lord, Thank you for the wonderful summer that many...

LTML31: Bringing It Back Home

Things are starting to make sense around here, and I’ve started to get into a pattern with everything that I have taken on my plate.  So, for this week of Life Through My Lens  Thursday, I am gladly bringing it back home to me. I’ve run around doing everything for everyone else, that I have neglected myself once again.  It’s like a running theme in motherhood, we would gladly sacrifice ourselves, if it means its for the greater good.  But the greater good has not been benefiting from my...

For The Love of Books (A Personal Debate)

It seemed like it was yesterday where I realized that I needed show a better example for my daughter when it came down to reading.  I read everyday, all the time, but the thing is I read ebooks.  And not children friendly e-books (political science, history, keep our heads clean people!). So when I finally did realize that I need to have a physical book in my hand, not only did I realize that it as going to feel:  Awkward–I usually have phone in my hand, not a book.  I have to get used to reading print...

LTML30: Life With A Boy

Ever since Little Z was able to run and ride his bike (among other things) life with a boy is very different from life with a girl! Zee may dream of princes and parties, Little Z (at the moment) loves on crashing things and throwing things in the air.  He loves chasing and running.   It is a very welcome changed though, since it also exposes Zee to the many boy things that are so much fun (in my opinion).  After all, how many dolls can a child own?  (Mr. C and I do not buy the dolls since she usually gets them as a...

From The Top

  It feels like it has been forever since I wrote a post on Tuesday here.  It’s not that I haven’t had anything to say (quite contrary) I just haven’t had the time to sit down and say all that has been on my mind. I suppose, though, to “catch up” with everyone who reads my blog, I should start at the beginning of things.  My apologies in advance if this is “all over the place.”   Homeschool Began   As some of you know, we start home school in July, so the transition from...

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...
