Look at that mess!


On the night of Cj's second birthday, his second cousins (my first cousin's kids) came over for a slumber party with us at home. Or it was just them because I sleep so well when I'm in Pinas I am useless when it comes to slumber parties. While waiting for dinner Cj's cousins had nothing to do and thought it fun to mess up his face with icing:

The mess on the following shot may be inconspicuous but it's Cj's messiest moment so far. He was evading bath like an adult evading taxes. Yaya was chasing him around. With hair unkempt and a shirt that needs changing, he's ready to run again:

He wanted to go with me to the Plenary Hall, and I wouldn't have minded, but kids aren't allowed in there. He lost his poise and had milk droplets all over. The marks kept me aware of the fact that when it's time to take off the black robe and high heels, it was also time to be a mom with a kiddo to deal with:

I will be honest with you, fellow mommies. While it's cute to observe kids in their messy glory, I don't particularly enjoy picking up after them, lol!

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
