Exit Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher..

So the curtain finally falls on Ashton Kutcher's and Demi Moore's union. I'm kinda sad. I know its ridiculous because they're part of the empty, vain, shallow life that is Hollywood. But yet am sad.

This breakup, makes me sad for so many reasons. First of all, they're people and it's tragic when a marriage ends in divorce. Then it just makes me think of how desperately we need Christ in our lives and in our relationships. When we see the world and others through the lens of God's Word, we rise above ourselves and our nature and like Christ, learn to lay our lives down for others. Loving them even in they're weakness and imperfection, God gives us the strength.

It makes me think of how frail and weak we are. Our femininity and masculinity is flawed. Therefore we constantly have to look to God to redefine us and write the story of our lives afresh.

This break up also saddens me because I liked them. Yes, I admit it, I was rooting for them. They were different. Defied tradition. I like different and tradition defying folks. Its just me. Normal bores me.

Anyway, these are just my thoughts.

Have a happy day people! And strive to walk with Christ, in the end He is the only Truth we have.

Vanilla/Cinnamon Pancakes for dinner

So today I was struck by this sudden, strong urge to eat pancakes for dinner. Yap, for dinner. And I thought why not. Life is blissful! But I decided rather than making them the old dull way, I would jazz them up a bit. The result was delish!! I can't believe I didn't try this earlier. So next time you're making pancakes, consider using milk only rather than water. Add a dash of cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. The result? YUMMYLIOUS!

Ni hayo tu kwa sasa :-)

Yummy, one minute breakfast!

If you're like me, then you often get stuck in the 'toast and tea for breakfast' routine. Its boring, I know but it's so darn easy! So imagine my delight when I came across something equally easy, if not easier, than my dull tired excuse of the most important meal of the day!

It's delicious and healthy, which we know, can be a rare blend :-)

I thought I should share it:

Banana Whips
(makes 2 glasses)

2 bananas
1 cup milk
1 to 2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, if desired
1 cup ice cubes

Place bananas, milk, honey, vanilla and cinnamon in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add ice cubes and blend until cold. Serve.

Time and flowers :-)

Boy have I missed this small space of mine! You would think now that am at home, I have more time on my hands. Well..wrong! I have very little time. No time in fact. You simply cannot pass a smiling, blabbing little face that loves kisses and cuddles and games! It's too hard.

He's sleeping now, so atleast I get afew hours to myself. Meanwhile, I have nothing much to report on, just this strong urge to type and post something.

Oh and since I have to leave something fab for ya'll. I leave this bouqet of beautiful flowers that I picked from my aunt's garden last Saturday. I don't know what they're known as but they're gorgeous! (Check above)

Thank you Tata Njambi and cousins for the hook up!
