How time flies, we are at the end of the month of April. This morning I have been nagging hubby to start plowing the ground for my vegetables. I have been germinating few weeks ago and because I used organic soil, the seeds become now tiny seedlings. I cannot believe how fast they grow I have to wish we have a sunny and not gloomy day here in Michigan. As usual, hubby always told me that frost might happen anytime. He  said he remember when he was young they started planting on memorial day but I am set to plant early because I am going home next week to the Philippines. Last year we do not have a garden. I was frustrated two years ago, woodchuck comes to the garden often and eats my vegetables I ended up nothing. Then hubby also notices that our vegetables at that time are not growing well. In fact, my eggplants were too small and my tomatoes did not produce any. I told hub…

First Day

Image
Yes! Today is the first day my niece go to school for a summer class. She is the one who took nursing but did not pursue the course. Rather, she took another course which is Criminology. My hubby told me she had to follow her dream if that is her choice so be it. So I accepted that she won't be a nurse but soon be a cop like her Uncle my brother. I too believe that if you follow your dream you will be successful. Last night, I told her I would challenge her. I told her she should be in the Dean's List and she told me she won't promise but she would study hard. Another endeavor another challenge for her I wish her all the best I know she could make it!! Love you ate!

I was born in the 60’s and growing up we have to be resourceful what toys or toy we are going to build. I think I was already working in the 90’s when I learn about toys played on TV. I am very impressed that time how the world could people invent such awesome games. Then came the 21st century and everything just surprises me. We can play anywhere we want to from our phones or tablets or in front of our TV.  I could not believe how technology rapidly evolves that almost every six months there is something new that is being launch. One that caught my eyes is AppGear. Actually, my nephew and cousins told me this because they are into new games and for what I know, and I am very impressed.  AppGear is an innovative line of apps that seamlessly interact with cool, collectible toys and shift the digital gaming world into a new reality….an Amplified Reality. As I visit there website I li…

Holy Week

Image
To those who live here in the USA we all know that Holy Week is not celebrated by all. It's only the Catholics who put a lot of emphasis to this week but still what they have here is nothing compare in the Philippines. Every Holy Week my thoughts and memories are in the Philippines. After Palm Sunday, the city or hometown starts to get quiet. People are flocking to come home to there respective provinces or hometowns. In my case, we start to go to the church and observe quite moments. On Thursday and Friday until Easter Sunday, it is celebrated by the whole family strictly. The procession, station of the cross, etc is what I  missed. These pictures were taken by my brother with my nieces and nephew in tow.

Been Here?

Image
I was very excited when we crossed this bridge. I saw these sign and below is a river. Now I forgot what river was that, anyone? My guess is Mississippi river but the state that is bordering the river is Illinois and Missouri pretty cool huh? If I was wrong here please correct me ^_^


 My eyes was glued to the second sign, guess what? Of course, the GIGANTIC American Flea Market Sign. I would definitely love to visit this place anytime! ^_^

Facebook No More

Image
Since I am far away from my family (live in the Philippines) I was happy Facebook is born. So I created an account for my nephew and nieces. My brother was into it too and because of that I could chat them when I see them online. Or we shared photos. Facebook does make family connected even if we are thousand miles apart. But then, nephew and nieces add to their account their classmates or friends at school. From the beginning I didn't mind but I noticed that there are bullying around. I even have to report some to Facebook authority and I deleted a lot of my nephew and nieces so called "friends". I told them I do not like these and that kid because the mouth is foul and I do not like the photos that are being tag. I was happy because they do not care as long as they can play the games on Facebook. Last week, I was very surprised because I saw a PORN photos on my nephews Facebook page. I was furious at the same time feel guilty because I was the one who make them an acc…

O God, who on this day, through your Only Begotten Son, have conquered death and unlocked for us the path to eternity, grant, we pray, that we who keep the solemnity of the Lord's Resurrection may, through the renewal brought by your Spirit, rise up in the light of life. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.


Easter is the feast of feasts, the unalloyed joy and gladness of all Christians. In the very center of the Mass, the great prayer of thanksgiving, from the first words of the Preface, expresses the unrivalled motive for this joy: if it is right to praise You, Lord, at all times, how much more so should we not glorify You on this day when Christ our Passover was sacrificed, for He is the true Lamb who took away the sins of the world, who by His Death destroyed our death and by His Resurrection restored our life. Easter means, then, Redemption obtained — sin destroyed, death overcome, d…
