Start of A New Beginning

After all the struggle, I am finally back here! I can't describe how happy I am that my babies are back running now. I truly missed everyone and my friends in the blogosphere. I missed my blogs and I missed reading the updates of my friends from all over the world.
I know I was gone for a long time and I have a lot of updating and upkeeping to do but I am determine to get back in sync with everything little by little everyday using the most of my spare time.
Merry Christmas belated and Happy New Year everyone!

Modern Healthcare

I think one of the advantages of living in a first world country is the availability of all the modern and state of the art medical equipment. I know healthcare without medical insurance can cost you a fortune but knowing that anytime you need emergency and intensive care, it is available. For instance, if you have a heart problem like unexplained chest pain, the ekg, electrocardiogram, can be used to determine what the problem is. EKG is a test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. EKG is just one of the many breakthroughs in medicine that helps people find answers to their health problems. It is always important to take care of your health and take any precautionary measures especially if you aren't feeling well. Talk to your doctor if you need professional opinion about your situation!

Need New Laptop?

I think it is time for me to start looking for a new laptop. The laptop's battery is drained. I have to plug it while using or else it will shut off. I started looking for new battery in the stores but I would like also to look online to see where I can get the best deal. Is there anyone who know where can I buy batteries online? I want to know another online stores other than ebay and amazon. Of course I want an inexpensive but great quality battery. A battery that would last for a sometime while I am looking for another laptop to buy.

Fruits of Labor!

I am very pleased to share to all of you how my vegetable garden is doing well especially my okra. I can't believe how many okra I harvested everyday. Most of the time, I can get 4-5 okra everyday and this okra aren't small, they are very long and big. I guess, everything is really huge in Texas, huh!

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.

Here is a picture of my okra and other vegetable that I harvested from my garden.

Weather Check

Per record, this is the longest stretch of 100-ish temperature that we experienced here in Texas. At peak of the day, temperature usually reaches 100-106F. It is burning hot. If your work or activities require you to stay outside more often, make sure you are drinking a lot of water to keep yourself hydrated.

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!

Eye Witness

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.

Outdoor Fascination

If you and your family love camping, then maybe it is time for you to consider buying RV. It is costly compared to putting up a tent but it sure does offer more convenience and comfort. It is indeed worthy of your money and investment. You don't have to buy a huge RV, just enough to give your family enough space.

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.

Festive Days

On special occasions, hubby and I always make sure to dine out in our favorite restaurant, Houston's in Addison, Texas. The last time we were there was last month for our 4th wedding anniversary. As always, it was a blast.

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.

Sunshine In My Life

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?

New Face

Hubby has to re-positioned the TV in the family room because he needs to hang 2 movie pictures on the side of the wall where the TV is. Since the TV is kinda far from the outlet so we need more tv cables.

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
