Looking Back 2013 Part 1

I have been reading blogs about memories of 2013. I like to do it too for the first time I will do it this year. Thanks to Anni whom I got the inspiration and I am doing memory lane through photos it is much easier I think and fun ^_^

January 2013
                              We had foggy, slushy, cold winter month good to start the year huh!

February 2013
                                    One of my kid at school had this on his shirt. It is funny though.

March 2013
                                                            Attended friend's wedding
                                  This month also I went to Philippines to visit my family there.

April 2013

                                                   Went to Singapore for several days..

                               In the Philippines to get the fresh coconut wine somebody has to climb it for you.

           Some people who live along the coastline fetch their water right on the sea when it is  low tide.

                           Rooster is a common sight in the Philippines cockfighting is common there too.

                It was summer when I went to the Philippines the common pastime kids do in summer is to fly a kite. My nephew and his buddies make their own kites which is very cool. It is made from a bamboo stick and garbage bag then a long nylon or strong thread then you are set to go and have fun.

                           These building fascinates me I was at the bottom of this building looking up it is huge. Aside from that me and my friends could feel droplets from above well we found out that above is a swimming pool. My regret is not to go up and see what it looks on top of this beautiful building. If I have lots of money I would like to get a suite here I think this is a condominium.

                   They call this in Singapore Supertrees which is indeed supertrees. So happened we went to the place almost night time and they had this light show it was amazing theser supertrees change colors and it is just so beautiful!

                                             Starting to plant seeds for my garden

                                            This time I see blossoms from our peach trees.

                                                                       My birding

June 2013

                                          This is the month when I could see again my Irises

        Another bird I like to take a shot. My pastime in winter is birding and it is very cool to see birds while our surrounding is starting to get some colors from flowers and trees.

             I planted this plant Lantana this year and hope to see more flowers next year. In the Philippines this become a shrub I wish mine do too so I could plant more. Bees likes this plant and so I thought I would plant more of this next year.

Blue Ice

Last Sunday we had our first snow/ice storm it was bad. We lost our power thankfully we had a generator but then our heating system didn't work so no furnish to warm us up. We opened our stove and let the heat comes out it did warm part of the house though. By Tuesday night the power was back and I was happy. I cannot imagine in Christmas time not having a power with all the cooking and everything it is hard. So I am thankful to all the hard working people of DTE putting themselves in terrible cold and danger. I took these photos yesterday the sun was out and the ice glistened like diamonds it is beautiful!

Last Sunday we had a snow storm but the night before that we had rain. Combining the two rain and snow it became ice. We woke up the next day the sorrounding is like in a halt everything is ice but I took my camera put on three jackets and snow pants and boots and took off. Though I did my photographs just in the backyard it did not take me long to stay outside it was so cold. Here are some of my photos that I took last Sunday.

Ballroom Dancing

I love to dance. I remember when I was young my father used to teach us how to dance the waltz. My father and mother loves to dance they are the one who teaches us to love dancing. However, it was in college when I know about ballroom dancing. As a Filipino, in general, we love to dance and ballroom dancing is common to us. When I get here in the US I found out in our township they offer  a ballroom dance lessons and their are Inspiration2Dance.com that you can pick whatever time you prefer to do it. Now I am almost in my fifties and still I so love to dance and sing. What about you do you have a talent in dancing if not better discover it dancing makes you feel young.

Blue Sky & Snow

Thankfully, Mother nature is not damping all the snow "yet" in our area. Took this the other week when we have a little snow fall. When you live in Michigan flurries or a bit of snow is nothing ^_^

Check The Card

Two more weeks and it will be Christmas and as far as I know, people are busy. It would also be very busy soon when the school ends for the holiday. For me for now I have not shop yet, I did the other week for my godchild and some exchange gifts but not for my hubby yet. I told him I might not give him one this time because I will let him see theUSHealth Group  because of what I heard about health insurances. Many of my husband side family are in Texas and this group base on that area too. So I thought why not send them a card and putting the site on the card for them to check. It would be an awesome topic to discuss in dinnertime perhaps.

                                                                    Episodes 86, Year 1

Went to the library the other day to borrow some cd's and books when I found out there is something going on in their function hall. So I asked somebody what it is all about, well, I found out it is a talk about reptiles the little creatures around us. So I came in and seat down and I have lots of fun. After the speaker finished his talked he pass his little friends to us. I love to see the frogs and the snappers but I have a hard time touching and looking at the snake. Don't you know he observed us and he sees me teary eyed and squirming when it was time for the snake to be passed around. Some kind of weird a snake to be pass hehehe but I never touch it because just by the look of it I am already almost to passed out ^_^ Here are some of my photos minus the snake hehehe.


Again, watching my backyard birds this morning. And as I was watching a small cutie pie Bluebird passed the window. I grabbed my camera and ...
