I had one of those days when my teeth are aching for some sweets. I saw a delicious photo of flan, and I had to make it. After looking over the ingredients and the process of cooking, I thought it was easy enough for even me to attempt. So let's get to it, shall we?

The weather here in Michigan hasn't given any opportunity to take pictures of the sky. It has been gray and gloomy for many days now. So I play with some old pictures, layering the moon photo on top of a red sky. I like how it turned out. I hope you like it too and have a fantastic weekend!

What You Will Need:
  • 1 box of Toi San Imitation Noodle (you can find this at Asian market, and Meijer)
  • 1 lb of lean pork, or shrimp
  • A few slices of ginger root
  • Green onion, or cilantro
  • A handful of pea pods or bean sprout (optional)
  • Lemon wedges
  • Salt and pepper to taste

You probably know by now that many parts of the US Midwest went through storms and tornadoes on last Sunday. Although we was skipped but we got rain, strong wind, and gray sky.

What You Will Need:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh squeeze orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 6 tbsp sunflower oil or canola oil or cooled melted butter
  • Grated rind of one small orange
  • 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries

The colors came up so pretty in the photo above at around 6:30 AM. I thought we will have a great sunny day, as it usually does; but I was wrong. After dropping my son off at his school, the colors were all gone.

Fifteen minutes later, we had a grayish blue sky that promises some more rain with the wind kicking up high. I suppose we are going into winter for sure pretty soon. Have a wonderful weekend..

― Albert Einstein

Around here, we are going into colder temperature, and it is time to build your immune system to stay stray from the cold the flu!

I cook all my meal with added herbs and spices. Ginger, garlic, lemongrass, and onion are the common ingredients in my dishes.

If you are fond of having soup on chilly days, make a pot of soup with the ingredients below to boost up your immune system:
  • Cabbage-(it increases your body's ability to fight infection)
  • Shiitake mushrooms-(contain vitamins and minerals to help your immune function)
  • Any type of seaweed-(seaweed cleanses the body)
  • Any type of squash
  • Carrots
  • Fresh ginger slices-(ginger helps your digestion)
  • Oregano
  • Onion
If you don't like eating it as soup, then just make a pot to use as broth. Drink it every few days to build a strong and healthy immune system.

Presenting to me was this beautiful sky painting when I took my son to school in the morning. At 7:15 AM, it was still dark out there, but it made the colors stood out quite better.

Yes, this scenery was in my neighborhood, and when I saw it; my jaw dropped almost (I said almost) to the ground. It was just unbelievable! I did not care who was watching me out of their window. I was just happy being a fool walking this way, walking that way trying to find an empty spot to take these photos.

I signed up at RedGage about two years ago when friends asked me to, and then I forgot all about it because I was swamped with too many things to do. However, I recently checked back in and decided to use this website to share my photos just for fun since I have so many in my archives.

I still have these gorgeous mini cornflowers blooming in the garden, and I might add that they are doing well despite the strange weather we're having. Since the weather changes, I have also neglecting my little garden, and whatever grows, just grow.

Our Varsity soccer game usually started at 6:00 PM, and the cloud often put on a pretty display in front of our eyes. Though there are many cameras on the bleacher, there is only one that pointed at the sky :-)

Somehow in the open, the sky always seems much prettier to see without the power lines and such. Daylight disappears very quick nowadays, and most nights we get home when street lights have already been on for a while.

In 2007, I wrote this article, Five Signs That Tell Your Relationship is Over based on how I felt, and experienced. I'm not one to gloat about how many views this article has received, or how much money it has earned me. However, I just know that this article is still circulating very strong, and I've received a number of requests through email for advices on when to throw in the towel.

However, I am not trained as an expert in relationship. I can only offer my own experiences as stepping stones for those that need a little road map.

I came across these photos of lilac buds taken some time in May, and like the lighting on these branches. As you all know, lilac season was over a while ago, and my archives come in handy now!

Looking forward to new growth next year will keep us all content while taking new shots as the season changes.

May your new week be filled with blessings!

My oldest son discovered an authentic Polish restaurant in our area called Celina's Polish Kitchen, and it was voted Macomb County's "Best of the Best" Reader's Choice Awards in 2010.

Above are the potato perogies, topped with chopped sautee' onion! Prices are reasonable and the food is fresh.

I don't like to see the power lines when I take photos of the sky, but somehow these pictures came out just perfect for me not to mind them. The colors were amazing even through the busy power lines in my neighborhood.

It starts out with this beautiful yellow flower on a crawling vine, behind the wall of mama's house. It was not planted intentionally, but was meant to be composted when the left over was tossed there!

Upon entering the High School parking lot to pick up my son from away soccer game on the bus, this sky literally took my breath away. The cloud and the colors married harmoniously in a dance over the entire area.

Since this was the parking lot to the sport field, and the foot game was in progress; there was only one way out. I am happily strolling down the lane taking shots of the sky before making my exit.
