patterns in nature
In response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Patterns in Nature, I have been pondering patterns. In nature. Through the week, I peered through hedges, looked up towards the treetops, squinted at little critters.Continue reading “patterns in nature”

Small Pleasures: noodle pancake, seed bank, serenity
In the spirit of experimentation, I schooled my face as best as I could when Adventurous Younger Daughter wanted to try a recipe for Noodle Pancakes.
I had my doubts about the enterprise but I dutifully procured the ingredients called for and served as Sous Chef. We took the recipe from New Wok Cooking, although I did find variations online. I substituted wholegrain rice vermicelli for the plain noodle. As it turned out, they were rather delicious and pronounced a success.
Older Daughter and I popped into the Singapore Botanic Gardens Seed Bank which had seed displays and workrooms on view.
It was an interesting & entertaining hour, which sparked off tangential conversations about the need for seed banks, global disasters and private enterprise stepping up.
It has been raining a great deal this week, so I enjoyed numerous cool and serene runs in the mornings.
I am inspired to gratefulness by Laurie’s Friday Favourites (NotesFromTheHinterland), ThistlesandKiwis’ This Week’s Small Pleasures, and LittlePiecesofMe’s Grateful Fridays.
I am not an early bird by nature. But necessity finds me up before the sun rises on most days (I drive Loving Husband to school so I can have the car – he likes to be in school round about 7am). Despite being heavy-eyed, I do enjoy my runs & walks before the heat becomes uncomfortable.Continue reading “early”
Small Pleasures: sculptures & yummies
I have been following Laurie’s Friday Favourites (NotesFromTheHinterland) for a while now. I find her weekly updates informative (I am a busybody) and inspiring (joy that comes from gratefulness). So I have decided to join in. Check out also ThistlesandKiwis’ This Week’s Small Pleasures as she shares the things that bring her joy.

Adoring fans crowded to gawk & cheer. Fortunately, they moved on as I approached. Apart from me, he had two other spectators, twirling & swirling around him, perhaps hoping he would decide to share breakfast.
We’ve had a spate of cool wet mornings.
