Lyn's blog challenge. Lyne didn't actually tag anyone, but I thought this was a nice idea.
She says: Would you all be willing to slow down for just one second, and find one or two material items in your house that bring you joy/memories/sentiment?
Will you photograph them and put them on your blog, or write about them, if you don't have a camera?
It's not that I want to place excess value on material items. It's just nice to slow down and acknowledge those things that put a smile on our face. We need not to rush by them.
So here is a photo of one of the many things in my house that I particularly like:
I probably think best when I'm in bed, in those moments of insomnia or just before I fall asleep. I read in bed (curling up with a good book and eating chocolate while it's raining...man, heaven.). All is peaceful and quiet--I can just lie there, indulge in joyful and/or sentimental thoughts and bask in memories--until my lovely invaders come to join me, either singly or en masse. Then all hell breaks loose. But it's fun.

Before and After tag, from Zeroimpact: The catch is to list down anything with the before and after effect. Now, there are no rules set on what you are to write about, so let your mind work…
ZI, this is hard!!!
-You were only movement and a heartbeat before you came into this world. After cradling you for the first time in my arms, you became my life.
-Before I started blogging, almost none of you knew me. After starting this blog, everyone now knows I'm crazy
-Before drinking alcohol make sure you eat something. Or else you'll get drunk faster and then throw up after.
Anyone who wants to play, go ahead! :-)
