A Breath Of Cool Air

Jan 2019 4th #8 MONSO_001EDITPhotos by: Cherri Oh

♥ Happy 2020 Everyone! It seems like forever since I’ve posted! As so many others, I was down with a bout of yucky bronchitis after my busy and hectic holidays.

♥ There’s something about the winter and being cooped up that get gets my restless spirit going. It’s invigorating to be out in the chill of winter, skiing, skating or just taking a walk. Usually I have my window opened year round and winter is no exception I have one of my bedroom windows cracked a bit since I love the refreshing, cool, pure air. Funny how rooms can seem very stuffy, we always have a few windows cracked opened a little. To get away from the stagnant-like air, time to time I’ll just walk around our property or cul de sac, accompanied by Mr. Higgins of course just to feel the cool pure winter air on my face.

Delivering A Few Christmas Gifts

DEC 21th 2019 MONSO #3_001editPhotos by:Cherri Oh

♥ Earlier today I was busy delivering Christmas gifts to some of people I knew I wouldn’t be seeing on Christmas day. Just before I headed home I stopped at St. Michael’s to see what was left on the giving tree. On the first of December the requests/wishes by the less fortunate are hung on the Christmas tree as you walk into the church entryway. On that very first day my mom and I tried to choose requests that might not get chosen. It was no big surprise today, when I saw almost nothing was available, my parish members immensely generous had taken almost all of them. The seven that were remaining I grabbed without reading, shoved into my bag then I stopped at to Dunkin for a coffee and headed home.

Mr. Higgins of course greeted me as I entered the foyer making my homecoming warm and welcoming. Sitting in the kitchen I took the requests out on my bag and scattered them unmindfully onto the kitchen table and perused them as I sipped on my coffee. Four of the requests were simple toys, easy peasy,  two were small appliances and the last one just made my heart sink for some reason. The seventh request said “my own Toy Story dish and cup”. For some reason it made me choke up and I could feel my eyes welling up as I reread the little index card. It’s true I’m a bit on sensitive side but I’m pretty sure this request would have touch the hardest of hearts. My visual was this child wanted his/hers own set of Toy Story dish and cup because of  having to share the special one with his siblings. Suddenly I felt selfish for planning in my head all day what I was going to wear to the Christmas party my friend was having tomorrow and debating wether or not I wanted to buy another pair of shoes for the outfit.

Leaving my coffee behind I quickly threw my coat back on and drove off seeing Mr. Higgins staring out the front window looking confused as I backed out of the driveway. The Target was my very first thought I was able to find everything else but the Toy Story dish and cup. Frantically I called my mom, whom like I, is a die-hard shopaholic and asked if she had any ideas where I can find the dish and cup set, she suggested Big Lots (I would have never ever thought of Big Lots in fact I think I’ve only been there a few times in my life).

If anyone was watching me I think they might think I was a crazy person, almost breaking into a run in the parking lot and store. Only one thought ran through my mind  I had to find this dish and cup, I had to! The very first salesperson I saw I asked for help (almost pleadingly) the young man in his teens quickly walked up and down a few aisles with me anxiously trailing behind him. He pointing above my head to a rack and there I saw all kinds of character themed dish sets (the set each had the plate, bowl, little plate, and fork  and spoon, perfect!) behind the very first set one he pulled was the Toy Story one.  Taking it from his hands I bushed off the dusty box with glee! Yes! Thank you God! I gave his arm a little squeeze and he looked puzzled, yet had half grin as he looked at me and my excitement (I wonder if he thought it was for myself LOL). All the way home I had a warm feeling, not just happiness but something more, more like a “mitzvah” (a blessing to give/kindness). It’s a feeling we have when we give from the heart sincerely but this gift although small touched me deeply. Hopefully, the little gesture on my part brought a little happiness to that child, I know it has brought a huge happiness to me. 🙂

Winter Wishes

DEC 19th 2019 mooh #1_001EDITPhotos by:Cherri Oh

♥ Here’s to hoping all your winter wishes come true. For myself I feel very blessed and would only wish for health, peace and happiness for others this holiday season.

It’s a frosty night here in Massachusetts (24 degrees/burrrr!) as I write this blog, all of my family happen to be here at home which in itself is a miracle! My three brothers are all here (wife/girlfriends in tow) at my parents home being typically noisy as they play Xbox COD or some other shoot it up game :P. Mom and my grams are looking through a hope chest they started for me (hope chest for daughters/I think it’s an Italian thing) when I was twelve and adding more things in it. My gramps is helping dad bring in more wood for the fireplace, Bubbe and Zayde were here earlier watching an old Christmas special my dad saved from them to watch but just left twenty minutes ago.  It’s a warm feeling having my loved ones close by, sometimes I wonder how many more years I’ll be bless with this gathering of family all in one place. My Mr Higgins is curled up on my bed looking very comfy and I’m bit jelly I wish I could crawl up beside him. One person I’m missing dearly, Dave, 😦 he’s in Nova Scotia on another business trip but happily will be home by Christmas, thank heavens for FaceTime!  😀

Wishing all of you have loved ones with you during the holidays season making it a warm, loving and memorable one. ♥ ♥ ♥

*Snowflakes*

DEC 19th 2019 DREAMCATCHER #1_001EDITPhotos by: Cherri Oh

♥ Let’s put aside the modern meaning of “snowflake” as in The Snowflake Generation and talk a bit about traditional snowflakes. Well, first off, I LOVE snow! Like I mean, I really love snow, not just because it means skiing & ice skating but because of its sheer beauty. Mother nature truly does work her magic during winter “a blanket of snow” that covers the land is a sight I always cherish. To think all that snow are piles and piles of snowflakes always astounds me. We all know that snowflakes are formed in clouds and  happens when water droplets freeze and become ice particles. Then water vapor clouds congregate on the ice particle which effect it to stretch into a basic hexagonal prism that grow branches to create a more difficult and complex shape. Afterwards the snowflakes continue to change making them totally unique from each other. Awesome, huh?

Interesting & Fun Facts about Snowflakes

♥ Snowflakes can be categorized into six main types, plate (flat), column, stars, dendrite, lacy, needle, and capped column.

♥ There are 35 main varieties of  snowflakes which you could recognize from just looking closely at.

♥ Snowflakes are not frozen raindrops, frozen raindrops are called sleet.

♥ It’s extremely unlikely that two complex snowflakes will look exactly the same. It’s extremely unlikely; in fact, if you were to look at each snowflake in detail you would never find exact duplicates.

♥ According to the Guinness World Records, the largest snowflake in the world was 15 inches wide and 8 inches thick. It was recorded in January 1887 by Matt Coleman at Fort Keogh, Montana, he said that the snowflake was “larger than milk pans” wish I saw that & what are “milk pans”?  LOL.

Snowflakes

Frozen wonderment of nature’s gift,

Snowflakes like handwoven delicate lace,

Shimmering, glistening floating from the skies,

Caresses the land and sprinkles upon our face

Pure sheets of iridescent sparkles,

Visible for as far and wide as the human eye can see

Snowflakes disguise  familiar and humdrum into a mystical wonderland,

Take my hand, come meander through it with me

Falling, tumbling luminous like-stars,

Each frozen flakes of astounding magnificent unique beauty

On this Christmas day my heartfelt wish on each flake descending from above,

May it bestow on all world enteral love, peace and harmony.

♥ Here’s a little snowflake song my Grams sings, she told me around Christmas time the major television networks would each have a little short/ commercial (not an ad) as this one. She remembers it being on television throughout the season. Gosh, I wish they still played it.

Check it out below: Hope you like it 🙂
