A week and a half ago, we went to visit the 2014 Shell Eco-Marathon for half a day of fun and learning new things.
This is a photo of my husband’s hands (L) and my son’s hands (R) starting to assemble the son’s mini-SEM car which runs on saltwater fuel. Cool, I know.
I challenged the son to try to make his own mini-car and I would love to take him to a hardware store to get the tools and materials he would need. Yes, that is a store I prefer going and looking at this website gives me ideas on what to see whenever I have the chance to go to one.
Gotta love them sunset skies. I don’t know if it’s just me but I love December/January sunset skies than summer’s more vivid hues. Perhaps its those clouds that make the ski more dramatic. Perhaps because the weather is cooler and I can go out to enjoy the cool breeze.
Here was last Sunday’s sunset sky:
It would have been cool to cap off this evening with dinner while there is soft music (maybe not with classic emg), cool breeze and warm food. Wouldn’t it be great?

Our youngest daughter might go somewhere North next month for a few days of seminar together with other grade schoolers from other schools.
This early we are planning on her bringing her guitar and so we are on the lookout for a sturdy guitar case for her and perhaps a new guitar case at Musicians Friend would give us an idea on what to get her.
Right now, the daughter is adding to her repertoire on what to play for this seminar, just in case she gets to play in front of an audience.
Am looking at raymond weil watches but not for me though.
I have always wanted to give the husband a wristwatch. Why that and what does a watch symbolize for me? Because for me, time is very important. I tell the children that one of the things they can’t get back is time. Time is something we can spend with our family without spending a cent and this for me, is a timeless Christmas gift.
The current wristwatch’s strapped has been replaced. His other outdoor wrist watch is one that I use. So I guess it is just fitting that he gets a new one from me.
Will have to work hard for that though

Elsewhere halfway the world, snow is falling hard, making everything look like a winter wonderland. In our little corner of the earth, our “Winter tree” has started shedding and almost half the leaves are now gone. When all leaves are gone, it is Christmas time.
Makes it difficult telling the Manang that there’s no need for her cleaning services yet
