January 2 – Truth And Consequences



Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” (Genesis 3:13)

Read: Genesis 3:1 – 4:26, Matthew 2:13 – 3:6, Psalm 2:1-12, Proverbs 1:7-9

Relate: The idea of a clean slate was a good one. What happened? I loved the concept of a new beginning. Has it already been marred? I’m not even halfway through day two of this new year and already I’ve sinned. I’ve messed up. I’ve failed. This year began with such high hopes. It began with such promise, but my stupid pride, my foolish ambition, my lazy apathy, my fallen humanity already got in the way. Now I’m stuck sitting here wondering why I even bother.

Pike Place Paradise~

Cindy Knoke

Seattle’s Pike Place Market is a browsing, and eating paradise.
Could you resist buying from this cow? I couldn’t. I think the bedazzled pink tennis shoes are an especially nice touch and I think all cows should have them. 🐮🐮🐮
The quantity of stunning flowers, particularly the dahlias, are incredible.
The produce, fish and food stalls, will keep you occupied and eating for hours. Don’t eat before you visit here!
There is a Miss Biggy-Piggy for messages,
and lovely places to eat outdoors and watch the ships sail in to port.
Don’t miss The Giant Shoe Museum (actually you could, but don’t tell anyone I said this).
There are many stalls to explore filled with handmade art like these detailed miniature flowers in their tiny pots (click to enlarge and see the detail).
Cheers to you from the enticing Pikes Place Market~

Last Friday, we celebrated my friend’s Birthday at Amici, an Italian restaurant located at SM Megamall Atrium. That was the first time I tried the restaurant so I decided to make a review about it just to document the event and to practice writing as well.

I came from work that sunny afternoon, it was about 3:30PM, the sun is blazing hot as I walk my way to Megamall. I’m really excited about it because it’s Italian, and I love pasta and pizza. Me and my friends decided to meet directly at the resto, so we did and I am glad that the resto is not jam-packed. There’s only a few people dining that time so I thought, yeah maybe the resto is not that good, or too expensive or whatsoever. I know you think I did judge the resto beforehand, but definitely No. As a matter of fact, I…
