Cheap thrills, you may call it.

Home gardening gives me time to think. Reflecting, as I pull out weeds or trim the plants.

Makes me eager to see new flowers or shoots or fruits...

With this I look forward.

Looking forward to something gives excitement.

This leads to simple contentment.

Then there is peace. No matter how fleeting.

Isn't that what we all look for?

place of we can take off our shoes and be ourselves.
Scratch where it itches; clutter stuff, pick up, argue, agree.

And most importantly, it is where we learn that imperfections of others and ourselves are acceptable.

Home is...

...where simplicity begins.

Simple pleasures come from simple things.

Vase hand painted by my daughter. Flowers came from the backyard, left in the wild by previous neighbors.

Mine to behold.

What do you think?

Are you a Brosix IM Client? Have you tried this new technology?

We are trying to research on this new technology. News has it that Brosix has increased its customers three times in the last twelve months. We are not yet new customers of this but definitely will do our part in trying to investigate how this new technology has increased in the number of customers despite lopsided economy.

My husband is an I.T. professional and web designer also. He likes to learn new things about technology. It is very natural for him to read technical manual and programming languages books every day. Maybe he has heard of this. Maybe during one of his lectures to his classes or students he has already mentioned this topic. Since it safe, secure and updated I am sure he likes his students to explore this new technology. If he finds this really reliable he will surely recommend it to his colleagues or even his students.

Aside from the fact that he is a practitioner of the I.T industry, he is also taking up his Masteral Degree in I.T. so one of these days, I am sure he will encounter this new technology.

Sometimes wishes do come true.
Long ago, i wished my kids would grow up fast...

Now that they are bigger, I miss the sticky kisses, innocence and baby antics, too.
There are times I want to just say: stop growing!

Number game has always been my waterloo.

When blessings to decode and decipher figures were vested upon humanity I guess I was asleep. Or was I busy doing something else?

I have long accepted the fact that if numbers were to mathematician, words were to me.Just give me something to read anytime, I will be most happy to oblige. Just do not attempt to throw avalanche of number to me. I will be lost in the myriad of those codes. Then someone has to slap my face to bring me back to my senses.

That is why financial management has always been a challenge to me. That is why I always struggle with the figures and how to put together the numbers that come with budgeting and the likes.
Help is what I need. I searched for financial wisdom high and low. I am forever a blog reader of financial geniuses' blogs and sites out there because I am perpetually struggling to comprehend and manage the family's finances.
Now that we are down to one income household, I am always on my toes regarding finances. There are, however, moments now that I do realize I have improved a lot than before. Learning is a continuous process and if ever I win the grand price in iLASIK Video Contest I will be the most happy being!


Anyone who looked like this last Halloween?

How about this?

It was fun treat or tricking! Did you have fun , too?

I lost my father when I barely nineteen years old. Sad but true.

I did not know at first that he died due to a bullet wound. I was away in the University earning my degree.

Being fourth in the brood of eight kids, I felt the blow and had the awareness of the loss.
Lucky me, I was able to spend my nineteen years with him. My youngest brother was only 9 years old then. He was barely aware of what was happening. He remembers the event, though. Now that he is 26, he spent most of his life with my mother.

The loss made me be aware how precious life is. It made me step back and prioritize relationships and cherish them as life-long treasure.

Cliche it may sound but it made me treasure more those people who matter to me. Most may not love me back or even value how I value them, but I will love them nonetheless.
Life after all is fleeting. Now you have arms that hold you, tomorrow you may not.

Who knows you may find the precious one you have been looking for all along!


Who will ever tire of taking pictures of their kids?

No hands raised.

Not me, either.

And she always asks: "Why do you always take pictures of me?"

"Ahhh...I am busy, Mother. I am writing my story"

"This is going to be my story and I will sell it to Papa."

"Are you my paparazzi?"

Yes. Make that lifelong...

I am back in the blogging groove.
Thanks to hubby who got me the new laptop I am using currently. However, being online all the time has its downside too. My eyes are often exposed to to glare of the computer monitor.
I need to check the new arrivals so I can pick which one can help. $8 Prescription Zenni Glasses come good enough for me.
We will see.
