Earth Hour at home

We switched off the Main Control Board at exactly 8.30
The kids were running around with flashlight in their hands, putting candles on the tables and lit them.

We then sat on the dining table and chatted and laughed, later on we began singing different songs.
It was a wonderful, different atmosphere. Quiet, cozy, warmed by the dancing lights of the candles. And there were only the sounds of our voices and laughter. Usually there's the sound of the TV or at least the humming noise of the refrigerator.

You know what? We should do this more often. Let our earth take deep breaths more often.

What was also amazing is that the children really enjoyed it. I guess we are going to do this more often...

cute presents for my birthday

I found these stuffs on my desk the morning on my birthday...

A small card, some small stars, bright silver and orange and a small origami

All these was handmade by Inka, my daughter. What a wonderful gift.

I don't know why she picked that particular drawing of the dog. Maybe she
thought that somehow my personality is reflected by it...
Hopefully I am not that serious, or am I? Thanks so much Inka... Anyway I really
appreciate it which is the reason why I put this on my blog as one of the
wonderful moments on my journey...
