Water World Wednesday

                                                                     Episode 18, year 1

After weeks of no rain few days ago we had two days of rain. I was loving it very much I could tell my flowers and vegetables including my birds are so loving it. In between when the rain slows down I sneak out and took photos. Here is what I've got.

Now it's your turn to showcase your photos. One rule is to blog hop as many site as you can and leave a comment. Happy Water World blog hopping and have a safe and enjoyable weekdays ahead. ^_^

Yellow Roses

My favorite color is yellow and when hubby and I went to a Rose Show I can't get enough taking lots of photos with yellow roses. They came in different sizes and shades which made me very excited as I went from one rose to another.

Miss it!

Last May I had a good time with my family back in the Philippines. I missed the bonding time with my nieces, nephew, SIL and brother. One place that we visited is this beach resort (forgot the name). We were all excited to be in the island but all our excitement came to a halt. The owner told us that they are not going to transfer any visitors to the island because there is a storm coming. But did not see the sky a dark clouds what so ever but the wind is very strong. And yes it was also in the news that a storm is coming so off we went home! ^_^

Happy Color

Now I do believe that yellow is a happy color. Every time I see my goldfinch I am happy. I am happy because they are still there still visiting my bird feeder. The other yellow which looks like an orchid or a lily is one of the flower that intrigues me. I saw these flower when I was in the flower shop and I like it immediately. I hope when I go to the store tomorrow this flower is on sale because I am going to buy this one. I also found out that I have more yellow flowers in my garden more than the other colors. Which when I  check my flowers every morning it brings smile on my face.

No Clouds just Blue sky

Today we were fortunate we had rain. It rain the whole morning and when it stops I check on my flowers and vegetables I feel they are excited and happy. But my photos are from my strawberry picking and Lavender Festival.

We had to ride this train to go where the lavender, red and black raspberry is located. This is also the farm were we go for apple picking.

                                                                   Here is a lavender for you!

Target Coupon

Today hubby and I went shopping. I found out yesterday while doing my laundry that hubby does not have any more good jeans. I told him to spare some blue jeans for going out and not to wear it while working in the barn or in the yard or cutting hays! Well he is sometimes stubborn he wore it he came home dirty that is when I discover he does not any good blue jeans. We love Target and it is the only store that he found his favorite brand. He had an odd waistline measurement and when he found that jeans at Target; he knew right away it is his kind of store. He was surprise when I pick five jeans for him he says he need only two but I told him I have a Target coupon and he does not have to worry about it. The next-door store is an electronic store few months ago, I want to buy a laptop but could not figure out what brand. Yesterday, I had an Apple promo code and I am so happy because it saves me a lot of money for a good brand.       Sometimes, we have to wait for a right timing to…

Water World Wednesday

                                                 The second week of July how time flies so quick we are in the middle of 2012! It's our our Episode 16, year 1!

                                                                 How do we gauge poverty?

"However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts. " Henry David Thoreau

Sailor Anime

Growing up I saw my mother collecting figurines of course I was young at that time I do not have any idea why I wanted to play with it but my mother reprimanded us not to touch it. We just looked at those pretty figurines and wish we could play it. We have toys growing up but sometimes those things that our parents say no touch are the ones that we wanted to touch.       I was already working in the 90’s when I start collecting figurines. I did understand why my mother collects her figurines because she likes it. I often stares my collection and do not like somebody to touch it since I know right away if somebody touch it because it is not align. I still have my collection but do not buy anything for me instead; I buy for my nieces and nephew. What they are up to these days is animes. At first I did not know what it was until they showed me how it looks and what it is. They even have a name the same as to their favorite anime. One anime that they like is sailor moon and in fairn…

Lavender Farm

Hello friends how's your 4th of July celebration? Hubby and I went to a Lavender Farm here in Michigan. I didn't know that we have a Lavender farm very close to my place. When I found it out last Tuesday I know by the next day we have to visit it so off we go. Arrived around 11:00 am at the parking lot we smell the fresh air of lavender scent. It made me feel calm and ready to sleep wish I brought my hammock ^_^ The area is a rolling little hills. I see tons of bees and butterflies I didn't know they love lavender that much! 

This is the area where visitors have time to relax and chill out. They offer lavender cookies, tea, juice but I choose Lavender Lemon ice cream and it taste divine!!!

                    I bought 3 potted lavender plants hoping next year I may have lavender of my own.

                                               The greenhouse surrounded with lavenders.

                                                        I found an old pump wheel.
