Summer Has Just Began

Summer has just began and I know you are all enjoying your summer vacation just like as I am with my family. Charles is having fun doing all his NASCAR, and Indy Car races with his aunts as his audience. Well today, I attended a wedding of Marla and Mike. The wedding was simple compared to what I have witnessed in the Philippines wherein hundreds of people are attending the wedding. 

Anyway, I’m still not feeling great as my back really hurts. Its always one thing or another. Though the positive thing was we got new sets of tires and changed the brake lights. But when we were driving on our way down here yesterday I heard some noise from the car and it scared the hell out of me. Of course I was worried even though the car had new tires. Anything possibly could have gone wrong and that was what I feared.

Clarinet Instrument

Doug’s sister Connie played clarinet while in junior and senior high school when she was a kid. Now her nephew, Charles is a budding musician and plays many instruments like drums, guitar, harmonica and keyboard. Connie was looking into giving Charles a clarinet and the one she likes the best is the buffet clarinet at wwbw, it is a great instrument with good quality and a decent price as well.

With Summer's Fast Approaching

Any thoughts on last night’s season finale of Game of Thrones? Well I have never watched the show since it started. Though I heard good things about the show from my husband as Game of Thrones is one of his favorite shows to watch on television. As for me I watched game 2 of the NBA Finals. It was a great game were the Miami Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs. Aside from watching the NBA Finals, I also watched Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and Real Housewives of New Jersey. And later today, I am going to watch my recorded show Princesses Long Island, that's been sitting in our DVR for days. 

Anyway, with summer's fast approaching I’ve been planning to grow some tomatoes, green and red bell peppers instead of buying these produce from the store even though they are not pricey. These types of produce are always on my lists when I cook soup which makes it very delicious. Since we are visiting my in-laws next week I will just have to plant them as soon as we get back home. Perhaps I can bring some soil from my sister-in-law instead of buying bags of potting soil from Walmart which could cost me quite a bit.

How To Earn Income From The Comfort Of Your Home

As a stay-at-home mom, I have always been wanting to work from my home for additional income. Today, there are so many ways to earn income right from the comfort of your home. Some work for a traditional business but have a stay at home office set up. With the advent of the computer age many tasks are as easily done from your home office as on site at the business. Some have began a wholesaling business from their home office. With a low over head and good tax right offs a store front is not always needed to run a small business.  

Outsourcing or individual contractor status is also very popular. With computer skills like data processing, programming and web design in demand you can sell your skills to businesses that need your proficiency. Lastly, there has been a swing upward in professional blogging and writing. You only need to connect with those willing to pay for your writings about their products and businesses. This growing trend of working from your home has shown no indication of slowing down.

Tasty Pandesal :)

I baked my homemade Pandesal this morning. As you can see it doesn’t really looked like Pandesal but it tasted really good. I only screwed up in measuring ingredients as I planned to make 2 cups of flour instead of 4. I added the mixture of milk and yeast into the flour when I realized I don’t need 1 1/3 cups of milk. The dough was lumpy so I added 2 cups of flour into the mixture. 


Unlike when I first tried to make homemade doughnuts they did not turn out so well. My so-called doughnuts were hard as a rock. Doug and I were both laughing when we tasted the doughnuts as it was really hard. While my Pandesal tasted really good all I need to do is perfect the shape and let the dough rise for 1 hour. And as they say  practice makes perfect.

Triple Crown Races

Just last month I watched the Kentucky Derby for the first time. While I had seen some horse racing movies like Seabiscuit and Secretariat I had never actually watched the race. I have since really began to love the beauty of the triple crown races. I love the horses, the color and the pomp and circumstance. I also love the spectacle of sport that is horse racing.

Geese Nearby

I had quite a busy day. Drove the car and I was a little bit disappointed because I had troubled backing out. Knowing I have plenty of time to practice driving the car I’m sure I will continue to learn through the summer. Though every time I drive the car I am nervous but I have be strong and confident. Doug is not going to drive us all the time as he has his own job do. But the most funny thing today was when Charles drove the car and he thought he won in driving. Charles is very competitive though he hates losing in every game we have. 


While I was driving today I saw some geese nearby so I took some photos. Nobody owns these geese so they are just roaming around.
