Without any doubt, I am going to do vegetable gardening again next year and I will even plant more vegetables and I will start early also so that my tomatoes and peppers can bear more before extreme summer heat starts.

Everyone I know is already looking forward to Fall. My family and I can't wait for the temperature to cool down so we can start doing outdoor activities like camping, hiking and gardening. Few days ago, I already started looking for some camping and hiking gears for my husband and the kids. I found great tourmaster dri-mesh gloves in a discounted price and I think I will get one for hubby and the kids. I am also looking into bags or backpacks that we can use to store food, drinks and medicine kit during hiking.
Cool weather , where art thou? Rain, please come sooner so that the grass and the plants will be green again, the lakes and rivers will be filled again and the temperature will cool down. One thing is sure y'all, I can't wait for Fall to come!

I was driving in Hwy 360 today southbound when I saw an overturned car in the northbound. The wheels were still rolling and there were paramedics and firefighters who were on the scene. My heart began beating so fast. I had goose bumps; I was scared looking at the scenario on the other side of the road. I don't know what causes that horrible accident but I hope no one got seriously hurt if not lost their lives.
The accident that I saw reminds me of two things. First, be a safe driver to yourself and to other drivers on the road. Always take precautionary measures and not just drive as if you are the only driver around. Second, accidents or unexpected circumstances could happen in just a wink of an eye. Stay calm and focus; in most cases, these great characteristics can save yours and other people's lives. I know it is normal to get panic when things turned out the other way but try to stay as calm as possible.

If someday, we will have the money to buy one we will definitely buy one. We love outdoor activities and camping and a small RV will be perfect for us since we are only a small family and there will be less maintenance and RV repairs.
If you own one, don't forget to buy mechanical breakdown insurance for future RV repairs.

Why we love Houston's? We have a simple answer to that. We love the food, the people and the ambiance. They have the most delicious homemade smoked salmon in town. It is our all time favorite and one of the reasons why we always and will always go back there!
Here is hubby's homemade smoke salmon and dip. It taste just like Houston's.

Okay, I have to admit that I have been spoiled by my husband with beautiful flowers and gift baskets during special occasions. During Valentines, Mothers Day and our wedding anniversary, I received beautiful roses and other kind of flowers in my office. It was really a great surprise for me. Yes, I know my husband will always do something special during special occasions but the timing and the way he will deliver the gifts is something I still can't predict. I think it is very romantic and full of excitement and I love it so much.
My husband will always pick a flower or gift to my liking and wishes. He knows me so well that he already knows which floral arrangement value I would love the most. Actually, the price of the gift doesn't really matter; what matters most is the thought and the note that goes with the gift.
As my husband and I continue our journey to the future, I am sure there will be more flower and gift deliveries during special occasions. I think later on the flower company that hubby always buy the flowers and gifts will give him a membership for a lifetime and hopefully discounts as well.
I love flowers and I crave and appreciate surprises and excitement! Don't you?

Unfortunately, we don't have extra in the house so hubby has to go to the store to get one. It was a quick trip for him though because there are a lot of stores close to our house. When he was back, I noticed that he bought extra tv cables just in case we need one for the other TVs in the house.
After hubby put up the TV on its new location, the family room upstairs looks even nicer and more cozy. Another job well done for my personal home decorator/interior designer. LOL
