Easy Moneymaker

If you are in need of some extra cash, how about move to Taiwan and collect dog waste for some spending money? Apparently, dog waste is a huge issue in Taiwan that the government is willing to pay $3 for every kilo of dog poo collected. In areas where dog poo is even more abundant, they will pay $3 for every half kilo. More on this story here...

Life Updates

Today I had the pleasure of having a free afternoon to begin the scrapbook project I have been waiting to do for the past 4 months - the wedding scrapbook. A few months ago I had a dream of a perfectly organized set-up of the scrapbook materials to make scrapbooking more efficient. I remember waking up and trying to apply the dream to reality, and today - with the apartment to myself, I turned it into a fantasy scrapbooking workshop. With paper color coded and everything in its appropriate categories, I was able to whip out 5 pages, without any back pain. I was also excited to be able to use bits and pieces of wedding cards and novelties that came with them.

It's great to look back on the wedding day and remember the feelings and excitement that came with the big day. That day proved to be the best decision of my life, for being married to David has been the best thing that's ever happened to me! :) Definitely looking forward to the coming months and holidays. Its been fun figuring out what our family culture is going to be like - discovering what rituals and habits we have and partake in. The molding of our two worlds have thus far been blessed with unity and peace. Definitely thankful to God for that!

This month is a busy one. Many birthdays in the community, the Compassion Connect Banquet, and figuring out ways to stay warm this winter. We attended a weatherization workshop last week and got hooked up with some essential home improvement materials to make sure we are as energy efficient as possible. We are also working on getting some thick curtains for our sliding doors to maximize warmth.

Oh and shall I not forget to mention that AT LAST after years of thinking of the perfect boots, David and I found a pair and bought them!

We are definitely equipped for the season. Here's to warmth :)
