No smoke

Image
Here in Michigan it is already a law not to smoke inside a public place. What a relief to those people who do not smoke. What I also read is that if you inhale the cigarette smoke you are more vulnerable to get sick too. A friend of mine had a fight with her husband because he smokes inside her car. My friend never smoke when he smell it she goes ballistic. I told her to be calm anyway it will be gone soon just open the window and the smell will be gone. However, she told me it is not that easy it sticks to the carpeting and it is hard to get rid of the smell. I did not know that since hubby and I do not smoke. One time we were at my husband’s nephew and I know that his wife smokes. But there house do not smell cigarette smoke it amazes me I thought they really clean the house well every week or do some thing that get rid of the smoke but I was wrong his wife use e cigarette it was my first time to see an e cigarette and it  amazes me. I ask her many things and she gladly answer…

Tweet Me

I was at my friend’s house yesterday for lunch with bunch of friends and we talk about internet and social networking. We were laughing as we compare notes about our childhood. I grow up in a city but we do not have electricity until in the early 80’s. I remember at night specially if it is full moon, we kids go to the street all the neighbors gathered and we play. If it is not a full moon we stayed inside the house and we listen the radio drama or if my father is around he share stories of his childhood too. I remember it as one of the best moment of my childhood. Fast forward now every kid knows how to operate a cell phone and browse the internet. My husband still amaze of how I communicate my family in the Philippines it is by tweeting. Then I have blogging that they could peak and see what is going on with my life. The past weeks I was more into tweeting. Before I find it, hard to do it but then a friend showed me how to do it and now I am hooked. I did not know that there i…

My wish

Image
I love to cook it is one of my passion. The person who teaches me how to cook is my father. I remember I would rather stay in the kitchen with him than cleaning the house with my mother he he. So growing up as an eldest in the family I am mostly assigned in the kitchen and marketing which I gladly like to do. But in the country where I grow up our cookware is limited. We do not have cookware shops that offer huge range of products. I grow having only one fry pan and one pot for cooking rice.       When I get here in the US it was very different I see so many cooking utensils and tools in different shapes and functions. It got me excited right away I wanted to learn more in baking and get to explore more on my cooking style. I found so many cookware that are beautiful and colorful but I was looking on something that is dependable easy to handle and it will hold on to many functions. I found cookware fisller has it all. The first time I saw it online I know it is what I wanted. Fo…

Thanksgiving is done..

Image
So Thanksgiving is done and gone but for sure thanking God for everything is a day to day event of my life. Thanking for having a very good husband is a day to day prayer, thanking for family and friends is part of my daily prayer as well.
So thanksgiving is not only for a day but it is a 365 days event. But hey did you do Black Friday shopping? For me, I did not start this tradition yet. I'd rather lounge in the comfort of our home after Thanksgiving day. I do not have anything that I want that I have to go gaga and bustle every person in the store to get a thing. Today is cyber Monday I may take a peek of some good deals over websites that I like to purchase some things for my camera ^_^.
Sunday is the first day of Advent and last night I was preparing for my advent wreath. Advent means "coming" and in this season who we are anxious to celebrate his birthday but Jesus! So take a good look of your priorities do not let the shopping and acquiring material things overwhel…

Black Friday 2012

Image
Black Friday 2012 is here and is you done shopping if it is not then it are time for you to go and get Target coupons and Best Buy Black Friday coupons. I am very happy of what I have this time. If it were not with a friend of mine who thought me how to hunt coupons before going to store then I would not save a lot of money. If going shopping on Black Friday is already a saving you could have more saving when you know how to find and use store coupons. I have what I wanted for now and still looking for good deals last night I told a friend to look for coupons because she has more presents to buy and her list is longer than mine. She was impressed of how much I save this morning and how many I got from budgeted money. Even if we are in this time when money is scarce, it does not mean we cannot do our shopping because coupons are there and almost all the stores have coupons available everywhere. What we only do is to find it and use it. I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving dinner. Ma…

Welcome to Water World Wednesday
                                                            Episode 34, Year 1

Last Sunday we had a pretty good weather here in Michigan. It was a pretty good day to take a walk and enjoy. I decided to take a walk at the park it is about three miles from our house. I was glad I went out because the sun is warm thinking I might not get this privelege when snow come to Michigan. I brought my point and shoot camera and took some photos too.




Your turn to post your photos blogger friends. Do not forget to blog hop too. Have a Happy Thanksgiving to all!









Light yellow mum

These is one of the mums I bought this year. I planted this already and hoping next year it will bloom beautifully because the mums that I bought last year created a smile on my face. I used my mums this year as my cut flowers and decorate it all over the house.

Signtronix

Image
Do you wonder those signs along the highway? Where it came from and who does make it? I do wonder about it because it is one of my fascinations every time hubby and I go road trip to read all the signs along the highway. Some are very fancy some are already old some are very high tech. Then as I was browsing one day, I found out that Signtronix make those signs. They are the leading manufacturer of signs for 50 years! They have designed 6000,000 signs across America since they started in 1963. To learn and to know that a certain company can make such beautiful signs is amazing! One thing that I learn too the costs for signs are low but the quality is not and that makes it awesome! Signronix is the answer of all businesses who wants to boast their business and I am sure of that. 




Pet Care

Image
We are in the middle of the holiday season and I see people are buying gifts for their loved ones. Hubby told me to write my wish list and I did. Last night I erased some of my “wants” because a thought come to me. I wanted to have a dog and a bike for Christmas. Hubby told me he wish Santa could carry a dog and a bike it might be too heavy for him he he. PetCareRx is an online pharmacy for your pet supply needs and pet medication how cool is that! A friend told me about this PetCareRx few months ago but I did not care that much I do not have a pet. This time is different because I am certain I will own a dog soon. ^_^

Abilene Veterinary Clinic

Image
My brother and I were chatting last night and our topic is about our dog when we were little. We are not that little actually I think I was in high school at that time and so my brother. Our neighbor gave our dog to us and since then we fell in love with him. He grows up very beautifully and he never comes inside the house just lying at our porch. People are scared to come to our door because that is what we spotted right away a huge dog. He is much closer to my brother they are friends but then some things happened he got immediately sick and we do not know what happened in the beginning. Abilene Veterinary Clinic is a good clinic if this clinic was close to us at that time I think our dog survives. We found out later that he was poisoned by one of our neighbor a kid and my brother got mad at him. There was some kind of fight between my brother and this neighbor but our dog is already gone. A cousin of mine who know about Abilene Veterinary Clinic says we should immediately bri…

TGIF

Image
Thanks God it is another weekend I cannot believe we are almost to Thanksgiving day! Right now I am thinking if we are going to have a Thanksgiving dinner since I do not have time to cook all the food I want to cook. Anyway, I still have time to think about. I was browsing today the photos I took last few weeks ago and I missed the color of fall. Fall is pretty season it exudes the uttermost beauty of nature. Winter is soon be here and it also has another beauty that the rest of the season do not have. I am thankful that living here in Michigan I have a chance to see the four seasons. God is good!


A Help

Image
We all know that our economy is not doing well and many small businesses choose to fold their business for good. Hubby and I went to these gathering and one of our relative told us that next year they are going to close their business. It is somewhat sad because they had at least five employees and even if that is a small count of employees, it does generate economy too. There problem is the high tax, cash flow is hard to keep. I realize then that big and small business needs Alliant Group  to represent them. Because I believe that if business people are, happy with their business everybody will be happy too.





New Ways

Image
We are in this new generation that shopping is much easy.
