As Happy as Can Be!

Here's wishing everyone a lovely day. I hope that EJ's smile would somehow bring a smile in your face too. Have a lovely Wednesday everyone. The domestic helper aka domestic Mommy is a little bit bsy right now so I wouldn't be able to visit you for now, maybe later tonight when my partners in crime are all sleeping hehehe. Thank you very much for dropping and for leaving your valuable comments.

Pear Tree.. Asparagus.. flowers, etc.

I love to visit at my sister-in-law's house as I enjoy roaming around at her huge backyard. One thing that make me smile when I see plants here in the States is the plants that we use to grow in the Philippines to eat such as camote (sweet potato) and gabi or (taro plant) are being planted here as ornamental.
She has a big vegetable garden, I just took shots of the asparagus (left) and the lettuces and spinach.
She has two kinds of pear tree. One has gree fruit and the other has color maroon.
Hope you guys are having a good Tuesday. Thanks for visiting and commenting.

I Can Do it!

My daughter has been begging me to let her give Chelsea a bath. I was hesitant to let her do it at first because the iron sink at the laundry room in our basement is too deep and tall. I let her try to do it last week and she enjoyed it so much.

Pardon for the undesirable background hehehe, our laundry area isn't done yet. That's the part where we left unfinished with our renovation.

Thanks Rye for helping Mommy take care of the doggies. I am proud of you!

iPod Accessories

Do you own an iPod? I don't, coz I can't afford it hahaha. Seriously speaking, whenever you need an ipod accessories for your ipod, what place do you go to shop? I bet you have a favorite store to buy it. If I ever own one, I'll go online and compare prices for it's accessories. I don't really need an iPod but it would be great to have one. I am a very practical person so those things that I really don't need are set aside.

Weed or Plant?

There's one green living thing that grew in my flower bed and I am not sure if it's a plant or a weed. It looks exotic so I did not bother to pull it out. Now it has a bloom and it looks like a dandelion a little bit.
This is her. does anyone know if it's a plant or a weed?
Whatever it is, it's pretty, even the old one is gorgeous!

Fern

I adore this fern that Michelle (my SIL) has in her garden. Isn't that gorgeous? I have seen so many of this when I was growing up in the Philippines but I never paid attention as they were lots of them in there. I just now had the chance to appreciate its beauty.
Thanks for visiting and Following, will visit and follow you back tomorrow.

Half Awake Moment



These shots were taken a couple of weeks ago when we visited my FIL. Our son fell asleep on the way so we let him nap at my FIL's bed when he woke up, I tried to capture his half awake moment.

Have a fruitful week everyone!

Bright Orange & Dark Fuchsia Lilies

These lily plants are not mine but I adore them dearly as it always brightens my day every time we visit my FIL. These are not his either but his neighbor's.
The bright orange is very pretty and so is the dark fuchsia (not sure about the color lol).
Which color do you like? The Orange or the dark fuchsia?
Have a lovely weekend to y'all and happy Father's day to all the Dads! We'll go to church and proceeed to my father-in-law's house, so I'll visit you back tonight. Thanks for leaving your trail.

Daisy for Rose

I would like to greet my SIL Chris a happy happy birthday. She is celebrating her birthday today, unfortunately we weren't able to visit her because of my husband's school schedule and a friend had visited us also. We wish you good health Chris and lots of happiness!

I posted on my main blog the gerbera daisy that my father-in-law gave me for my birthday. Well, when our family and my SIL's family got together last weekend, she also gave me a pot of gorgeous gerbera daisy.

Something that grows on a Tree

Whenever I am out in the woods, one of my favorite subject to take pictures with are the trees. There's something about trees that seems to take to you every time you look at them. Weird eh?
What I love is that, you can see pretty organisms/living things growing in 'em too. Like this one (not sure what it's called) that I saw in Tomlinson Run Park.
I find it gorgeous! Do you?
Have a nice weekend everyone!

Hollyhocks?

Below is a picture of a gremlin. This is exactly what is playing in my mind when I first saw the hollyhock (not sure if that's the name of the flower but that's what I've been told) the grow in my flowerbed.
Do you see the resemblance? I took this shot when the hollyhock was getting ready to bloom.
But anyhow, before I creep you out, look how beautiful its bloom is.
This flower to me looks like a crepe paper.
Hubby said it looks like a fake flower hehehe.
So there is my beautiful hollyhock turned into gremlin nyahahaha. Just kidding.
Alrighty folks, it's time for me to go to bed before i get a nightmare about the gremlin lol. Thank you so much for visiting and for leaving your valuable comments all the time, I love them! Reading comments is like my coffee time in the morning, so keep it coming folks..
