Maru In Snow

I am not sure how much Maru actually gets outside but this is fun to watch. I bet if his owner put out a waxed cardboard box, he would be all over that!!

Still my favorite YouTube kitty!!

Pink Pussy Hat

I have never made a hat before, but the pattern I found on the PussyHat site made it look pretty easy. I added a bit to the pattern I got from it like the gray in the ears and the fold along the rim.

I am going to one of many Women's Marches across the nation on the 20th and made this hat just for that event. I am amazed it came out okay on my first try, I really didn't have to pull out much at all.

I know I don't talk about politics much on this blog, but I am very passionate about fair treatment of POC, women, the planet, and those that are marginalized based on religion, sexual orientation, and economic status in this world. The March is about standing up for the rights of those listed above. It is about telling the new "powers that be" that they are not going to take this country and this planet backwards without a fight. I am tired of being silent and accommodating...that time is over.

Eagle Cam

Harriet feeding E9 on the Eagle Cam right awesome to be able to see this up close!

Happy New Year to all!! We started out with some snow earlier but it has stopped and melted for now. We are expecting to get more though so we will see.

Now both parents are in the nest, must be time for the babysitting watch to change out for a bit. Looks like M15 is taking over for a bit so Harriet can go out and stretch her wings.

I haven't been as diligent as some watching the live feed but I do check in periodically as time allows. Just got lucky today that they were feeding and changing out.

Getting over a small chest cold this holiday season has slowed my activities but not so much that it hasn't still be a good season. The snow this morning on Day One of 2017 was a nice addition. Hoping the year is good for everyone...

Iron Man 2 MCU Timeline Project

And the project moves on. Watching Iron Man 2 today. It is next in the list for me on my project, and this one does a much bigger tie in with the Agents of Shield, Nick Fury, and Agent Coulson.

I am not that thrilled with the plot so far just because the bad guys are mostly in charge, winning and Stark is a pain the butt. I know this is part of the arc but still, I hate it when bad guys are winning...

So referring back to the list I am working from, Iron Man 2 is supposed to be the 5th, but Agent Carter isn't available streaming for free or on Netflix DVD yet so I have put off that side of things for a bit. I also am completely current on the Agents of Shield TV series, so those won't be worked into the timeline for me.

Next up will be Thor which I have moved to position 3 in my Netflix DVD queue.

Thai Green Curry With Chicken

Made this today for lunch with fresh organic eggplant from my father in law's garden.

It is called Gaeng Keaow Wan Gai in Thai and it is one of my favorite Thai curry dishes.

It is a little bit off my fitness quest but I had the fresh eggplant and needed to use it in something. I made sure to keep my portion in check.

I started on a fitness quest last week and managed to get through the first three days which were the toughest. Normally my eating isn't too bad, but with Halloween candy in the house, I had deviated off course big time. No more of that.

This dish is pretty easy to make...I already had the chicken cooked earlier in the week, and I just added green curry paste, fish sauce, sugar, keffir lime leaves, basil, coconut milk, and fresh eggplant. I steamed jasmine rice in the rice cooker.

So delicious!

The Incredible Hulk MCU Timeline Project

So the project moves on. Watching the 2008 version of the Incredible Hulk today. It is considered one that can be skipped if you want as it only barely touches on the timeline of Stark, Nick Fury etc.

I had forgotten that this version actually skips over most of the original cause and plot of the Incredible Hulk and picks up after Bruce has been on the run for a while trying to find a cure. It is a nice twist from the original story line and makes watching either version much more enjoyable.

So referring back to the list I am working from, The Incredible Hulk is supposed to be the 4th but Agent Carter isn't available streaming for free or on Netflix DVD yet so I have put off that side of things for a bit.

Next up will be Iron Man 2 which I have moved to position 2 in my Netflix DVD queue.

Iron Man MCU Timeline Project

Second movie of my MCU Timeline Project. I was actually supposed to watch the first season of Agent Carter before this and after I watched  Captain America The First Avenger, but the Agent Carter shows aren't available for streaming so I have to get them by DVD, so I will have to fit them in out of sequence.

I saw this movie when it first came out in DVD ages ago, but didn't really get to pay attention because we were at a friend's house socializing.

I really enjoyed this re-watch and think that Robert Downey Jr has a great delivery style. This was fun. Completely forgot that Gwyneth Paltrow was in it too. Loved the visits from Agent Coulson too from the Agents of SHIELD series.

Looking forward to the next segment of this little project.

Captain America MCU Timeline Project

Captain America: The First Avenger is the first movie listed in the timeline project that I am working on.

As I wrote before, after watching the Agents of SHIELD on Netflix streaming this summer, I found that I really wanted to know more about how things went chronologically since I was never a big comic book reader as a kid.

This movie didn't get great reviews but I still enjoyed it quite a bit and found that I liked seeing the background to some of the other stories I have seen in recent years. I thought they did an awesome job with making the actor look so small before he becomes Captain America, without it looking ridiculous.

I am supposed to watch Agent Carter's first season next but since I can't get it streaming, I might decide to re-watch IronMan which is actually 3rd in the list first.
