Garden Supplies

My mom was looking for garden supplies last week among which is an organic crabgrass killer which she will use in our little front yard garden. She is on her crabgrass control project at home to keep herself busy when she is all done with the house chores. I agree that she needs to do something with those crabgrass based on the last time I saw the front yard. Taking off all of the grass is not something she really wants to do. She just wants to get rid of the crab grass and leave the nicer looking grass in place and continue to grow.

Well good thing these days, if you are looking as well for other organic pest control products, there is always something you can find at an online store that sells environmental friendly lawn and garden supplies. I was able to recommend one for my mom so she will tell my dad to look up to it. There are still other garden supplies I have yet to find, I'll go check back on that list she gave me last week now. Hope I'll find everything she needs within this week.

Guard and Part Time Waiter

We had dinner at Gerry's Grill Abreeza tonight and I was impressed with this guard who had become a part time waiter at the same time. Well not actually the first time I saw a guard acting like a waiter cleaning up the tables and taking out the used dishes. But I wonder if he is getting an extra pay for this. Maybe a tip for helping out. 

Actually the waiters/waitresses at Gerry's Grill were really busy tonight and they were not enough. One waitress was lifting and moving tables by herself just to accommodate the new diners coming in groups of five or more. Good job to those people who work more than for what they have been paid for.

Golf

I missed the chance to go and watch an old friend play and hit some balls on the golf course in the southern part of the city. We met him at a friend's little and instant get together a few weeks ago and he just came from a open golf tournament to which he was invited to by some of his office mates and friends. I asked him if he had a gps for golf course to which he answered he still has to get one though. I asked because he did mention it first. I have been reading about the product online so thus my little curiosity.

Anyway, I wanted to watch golf too out of curiosity to try to photoshoot sports that hubby and I once talked about. From just looking and browsing through photo galleries recently from a sports magazine online that showed some photos taken at various golf tournaments made me think that it would be nice to venture into it not as a sport but a sport to capture through photos as well. Okay enough golf talk for now. I might as well take a break and be back online later.

Saturday 9: Against All Odds

Have you ever tried to rekindle a past relationship against the odds? ::: Nope, never will.

Do you like your job, or daily routine? ::: Now I am liking it more compared to last year I think.

Do you find time to 'smell the flowers' so to speak? ::: We do not have flowers here to smell. *wink* But I try to find some time to stop and enjoy the day, or each moment or minute that I find precious. We know that time lost, will not return to you again.
 
Do you have any problems thinking of things to write about in your blog? ::: I have so many things that I want to write but I just do not have time to write them all down with a busy life offline these days too.

Do others consider you well organized? ::: Well I don't think so.
 
Do you always have a “Plan B” just in case? ::: Yup unlike my partner here which could be frustrating at certain times.
 
How do you find yourself adjusting to new situations? ::: There are times that it is easy, and there are times that it isn't that easy.
 
Are you happy with where you are in this point of your life? ::: Yes! I am blessed despite difficult times at certain times in between. I am thankful for life and being blessed even if we are not rich.

Do you find the aging process we all go through easy or difficult? ::: What I know is that I wish to age gracefully and so hubby help me with that! LOL! If he gets what I mean.

Steamed Rice Cake for Dinner

Steamed rice cake for dinner is all that I'll have tonight. I bought it earlier when hubby and I were at Abreeza. I usually buy from Jaltan in the food court on the third floor of the mall. It costs  only P21 and it is a rather big piece and actually heavy to the tummy already. But I stick to it for some diet as I think again of potentially taking diet pills as further step to losing weight. 

This rice cake is my substitue for rice with viand tonight. Hubby was wondering if I would be full already by just eating steamed rice cake for dinner. Yes I will be and yes I am since I ate it already as of this writing.I am just fighting the urge now to have an ice cream stick. Oh goodness stop me from opening the freezer and taking one ice cream stick we stocked up there. All I wanted was just the steamed rice cake for tonight.

Money Causes Traffic

Well people are really attracted to money and when they see money even those scattered on the road, they would grab the chance to get it even at the expense of their safety. Well I just heard in the news that there was this incident when fake money caused a morning traffic jam on a highway in Moscow, Russia. We are talking of a ten (10) lane highway. 

Well to make a long story short, the money which made people scarmble out of their cars to grab was found to be FAKE! From what I heard no one was hurt which is really a good thing to hear because if there were, it was really not worth it.

This is not the first time something like this happened. I have heard a few stories about this before and I have even seen scenes of this kind of thing in movies. Well it goes to show people go to some extent when they see money up for grabs. Only in this news, the money was not real at all. It was in fact a joke made by someone.

Invited

We got invited to a birthday party of the daughter of one of hubby's officemates. They got this nice and beautiful invitation. I have not taken a photo of it yet since hubby left it at the office. I love getting stylish and trendy birthday party invitations even for any other occasion! I have yet to ask the mom where she had her invites printed. I am surely recommending it to other mommy friends because it is really nice and trendy for a little girl's party invites. 

I hope hubby will be able to change his shift on the day of the party. If not we may not be able to attend with the little boy unless I have my sister with me that day. The venue is quite far and am not familiar with it. Let's wait and see but we'd love to be there to celebrate and I know the little boy loves to be at a party! He would surely say "I love to be in a party!" again just as he had said in the few parties we have attended this year.

So Many

So many things I want to blog about but it seems that there is just too little time to really sit down and write them down. It ain't an easy task with a little boy to take care of and no help in the house except when hubby's home.

We have to live a life too not only "online" but "offline" as well in the real world. My time now away from the online world is spent on teaching the little boy at the smae time doing other important things in life. In as much as I want to blog a lot of things to share, well as they say, time does fly. Plus with so many virtual homes, it can also be not as easy as it seems to others. I am not complaining. I am just letting people know wondering where I am, in case. LOL!

New Camera

My sister got a new camera and I noticed it during the baptismal of my two nephews. I am just not sure if it's new or second hand. The last time we talked about the topic of affordable digital cameras just for everyday and practical use for capturing memories, we mentioned of many brands of digital cams including the camera casio digital among others. It's 14 mega pixels which is better than our LX5. Plus it can also serve as a GPS. 

My sis digital camera has no GPS as far as I know though. As with the GPS, it is for accurate geo-tagging of images. Your photos can be labeled with the location and building name when available therefore making it a lot easier to remember where the shots were taken. That's one nice feature to have in a camera especially in a place that you are not familiar with or where you are traveling for the first time. 

Speaking also of new camera, how I wish we could get a new one for ourselves....soon! Well I am gonna cross my fingers. But then again, there are far more important priorities.
