I was under the weather with a bad cold and just couldn't seem to focus on academics. Hackschooling makes me happy: Logan LaPlante at TEDxUniversityofNevada. Snegorotchka - A Russian Fairy Tale. The old wife sang merrily as she sat in the inglenook stirring the soup, for she had never felt so sad.

Snegorotchka - A Russian Fairy Tale

Many, many years had come and gone, leaving the weight of their winters on her shoulders and the touch of snow on her hair without ever bringing her a little child. This made her and her dear old husband very sad, for there were many children outside, playing in the snow. It seemed hard that not even one among them was their very own. But alas! There was no hope for such a blessing now. Snegorotchka The daintiest, prettiest little maiden they had ever seen. The old husband brought in a bundle of wood and set it down. 'Look, Marusha! ' As they stood together at the window, they laughed to see what fun the children got out of it. 'Let's go out and see if we can't make a little snow man.' But Marusha laughed at him. 'But only a little one, Marusha; only a teeny-weeny little snow man, - and I'll manage it that nobody sees us.'

craft + diy: Finger Knitting How-to

Well, this is anything. Sitting on the couch on a lazy Sunday, knitting with my kids . . . that beats gift-getting for sure. It is a gift itself. We just sat there side-by-side, for about an hour, feeling the warmth from each other’s bodies, listening to music from my computer and basking in each others company as the sun streamed through the windows. Ahhh . . .the experience was so delightful, it was hard to peel myself away to take the photos.

The two kiddos are finger-knitting, which I’ve written about before and again, but it continues to be a favorite activity. You end up with a long coil of knitting like this, that curls itself into a sort of tube. My son is using a finer and less expensive yarn, here.

Inspirational. November 2011. Snap by Fawwaz The first day of Aidil Adha was perhaps one of the most annoying time in my life. I had awake early before Subuh, performing solat and getting prepared for the Aidil Adha prayer. But then, I got too accustomed to the internet that I lost the track of time. That plus the fact I vaguely know the prayer time here, I ended up missing the prayer. Not a great start to my day. The lads then decided to go and snap pictures of us intake from MedicMesir. But that's not the hallmark of my Aidil Adha 2011. The hallmark, would have to be on the second day of the festive. In the last post, I mention that I was involved in ADHA '11 committee right? Well, here's a bit of overview of what had happen earlier today (7th November 2011). The day begin early for me, despite suffering a bit from fever, I push myself to arrived at the area around 7am.

More Jataka Tales by Ellen C. Babbitt

The king and his soldiers marched all morning long and then went into camp in the forest. When they fed the horses they gave them some peas to eat. One of the Monkeys living in the forest saw the peas and jumped down to get some of them. He filled his mouth and hands with them, and up into the tree he went again, and sat down to eat the peas.

As he sat there eating the peas, one pea fell from his hand to the ground. The king had watched the Monkey, and he said to him- [32] self: "I will not be like this foolish Monkey, who lost much to gain a little. So he and his men marched back home. What is education?
