Hello friends I am so back here after a very tremendous event this weekend. First of all last
April 23~~Thursday...was my loving husband's nth birthday!! I asked him the day before his birthday if I would prepare dinner or what. He told me not to prepare or cook anything or buy anything, he just wants us to have dinner at Blind Fish restaurant. So I told his eldest daughter to contact everybody and just meet at the restaurant at 5:oopm. At 5:00pm sharp we arrived at the restaurant and I could see he was so ecstatic all his children came with their wife/husband, his bestfriend/cousin who has a parkinson disease came with his wife too, and his one and the last Uncle came with his wife and their son with his Korean wife came too. Over all there were 25 people came and he was so happy about it. I am so thankful for all the blessings, good health (which is very important) that God showered to my husband. We retire that night with a simple prayer and a smile to our face.
April 24~~ Friday... for two days we had the best weather. It was not too hot nor cold it was just perfect so I decided not to do any computer business thing rather enjoying the warm weather outside. So I did a little spring cleaning here and there, checking my plants if they are sprouting new buds, checking my three peach trees and I asked my hubby to cut some trees that I don't like (box elder tree). After he is done cutting it was time for me to clean up and gather all the little and big branches and put it in my little John Deer tractor and put it in the fire pit. I never was done cleaning actually I still have so many things to clean up in our backyard, frontyard and sideyard jeez!!
April 25~~Saturday... I woke up a little bit early, I cooked immediately a binagoongan na baboy and pakbit to take with me to my friends house for it was time for our movie weekend get together. Hubby was already at his son's house helping him transfering all his things to another house so i was just all alone at home. I did some vacuuming, while cooking and chatting to my niece (multi-tasking moment). That morning the sun was shining and it is kind of another good day for Michigan. After lunch time the sky became dark and started to have wind. Unfortunately, I didn't check at the weather channel I was caught too suddenly because I was in the shower when the STORM hit our area!! The wind came right on us with a 70 miles per hour speed!! I was alone at the house and I was so scared I could hear a thumping loud sound, from everywhere! I came out from the shower and wrapped my body with a towel and I ran around the house trying to figure out what is going on. I tried to figure out where those knocking thumping sound came from. When I looked at the bedroom sliding door I saw our huge tall evergreen tree slump at the back of my CARRRRRRRRRRR!! Yes the huge evergreen tree was uprooted right there and as I continue to looked around I saw this huge branch from the Willow tree slump at the south side of the house almost hitting our house. I continued to look around our two garbage can that I stacked up at the back of our house was already across our neighbors driveway!! What scared me the most the electricity went out almost immediately. I was all alone.I couldn't use our house phone because it is VOIP, thankfully I just finished charging my cellphone but I was kind of worried to call my hubby because I was thinking he might be on the road or on the interstate highway and with the storm it is very dangerous for him to answer his cellphone. But I did call him and leave a message. He did came home before 3:oopm and he saw what the storm had left us. We checked right away the car if it was hit totally thankfully the tip of the branches is the one that hit the back of my car, and the big branch that almost hit the house landed just few feet from the house leaving a big hole on the ground. After hubby found out that everything was just fine except that we already don't have an electricity he brought me to my friends house for our get together date. When I came home that night some area had an electricity and some don't. I was already almost to our house, and everything was so dark, when my friends husband told us that it looks like we had an electricity. I already figured it out that hubby started the generator. Today hubby was so busy with his two sons who help him hooked up this huge wiring to the big generator at my MIL's house. While I was also busy picking up and raking the branches that fell down from the Willow tree. It takes me hours to raked the whole front yard I had blister on my right hand but I am so glad too that the front yard looks clean though I still have to work for the side yard and the backyard. Right now our whole house is generated by a generator that is why I am able to update my blog even if we don't have an electric power in our area at this moment of time. Here are some of the pictures:
Before the big generator was hooked up I cooked our food (my rice and heated the binagoongan na baboy) and boil water for coffee this morning with my emergency stove. I stacked up 20 ounces can propane just because of the purpose like this moment (sudden storm or hurricane). Overall, hubby and I are thankful that my car was not hit in the middle or else that would be a big problem, then the huge branch didn't hit the roof or the south side part of the house that would be a big problem too (financially), and we still could enjoy the tv, internet connection, refrigerator and freezer because of the generator. God is good!
