I cup

One more week and the kids will be out in school. I wanted to do my shopping done before my nieces and nephew visits me or else I will not be able to be done with my shopping. Today, hubby and I went to his Aunt and she happily told us that his son found a new job, which he likes very much. We were happy too that after he graduated his college education he landed to a new job. He is a very good kid and he deserves to have a good life and a good job. His mother told us before the company hired him they had many prerequisite especially about drugs. He took a drug screening using i cup and he told us he is amazes of how it detects if you are abusing drugs. For me a very cool idea people would not undergo any pricking just to know if a person is abusing drugs. For me I would recommend this to people who are in a way abusing drugs in there life and if they want to know if those drugs are still in there system this I cup they had to try.

Advent Wreath

          We are almost done with our first week of Advent. Do you have an Advent wreath at home? Here is my I like to show off. ^_^

I do the printing

     I have been browsing in the internet for something to give to my friends. I have been to many sites but still it is very hard to figure out what to give to them. I thought of giving them a cookies or cakes sometimes I thought of giving them just a gift card. However, lately I have been thinking of making homemade gift as a token to my friends but I also thought of making it really pretty. A friend of mine told me to look at web print solutions for my labels. I need labels for my homemade stuff and I have been searching high and lo in the internet that could provide a great printing job. Thankfully, I found one and it helps to ask to friends because they seem to know a lot.

Rubber Grommets

     Does anybody feel the pulse of holiday season? Hubby and I went to the mall today at first we walk around the mall after one round I started to look each store for good deals. I am very thankful hubby has all the patience for me. Then as we had our last walk around the mall he told me we had to go to another store because he is been looking for a rubber grommets. He forgot that his brother called him as we were heading to the mall to look for rubber grommets and it is been four hours since he called. I am thankful that my husband knows all these things or else every repair or work in our shop we have to hire somebody. Because he know most of the work we save a lot of money.

Pink Flower

 A friend of mine gave these flower to me last year. These year it blooms so much that I thought of dividing this next year for more beauty in my garden. I forgot the name of these flower but it is very pretty in pink right?

Is he lonely?

I spotted this kid at the lake. He is with his father fishing. He is very eager to learn how to fish and very eager to catch one. I so wish that day he catches one or two fish he will never forgot that experience. ^_%^

My kind of pillow

     Are you a pillow person? I do! I have five pillows with me and hubby has only one he he. I do not know when I started to like many pillows because when I was young I remember I only have two. I like to have a pillow under my feet, my sides and above me plus right under my head. That makes it five right? Sometimes I chuckled hubby started to throw away my pillows on his side but sometimes I get grumpy when I found out my pillows are not with me hehe. This morning hubby told me about a body pillow deals a deal for just me. He showed me the photo and like it that is what I need anyway. Any  kind of pillow make me happy I think I would include it in my wish list.

Wall Fountains

     Are you and observant person? If so, do you notice wall fountains in places that you go? For me, I like to look at wall fountains because usually they are unique. Oftentimes, I ask myself how they come up with the design and the name. Last three weeks ago, hubby and I went to a casino up north here in Michigan. As we enter the place, I noticed right away the log wall fountain and it is beautiful! It is not a small one but huge and it does capture the attention of every patron who go there. If you like to see more wall fountains click here for logo wall fountains and see for sure what I am talking.

Drawing from the Well

                     God is the real source of wisdom and strength.
                                            Job: 12: 13

What if you could go each morning and draw wisdom and strength from a pure and bottomless well? No matter how depleted you might feel as you close your eyes at night, you would know that you would soon be refreshed and replenished. There really is a well just like that.

God invites you to come to him each day, to draw from his never-ending supply of wisdom and strength. His resources are endless, and he's promised never to deny you when you ask for his help. he's always there waiting, ready to give you what you need to take on another day with grace and confidence.

Chinese Lantern

I do not know if these is considered a flower but it just look so pretty and colorful just right for a fall decoration. I planted this plant two years ago and now I could tell it has to be replanted in an area that could climb freely. Do you like the color?

Beach House for Rent

     Winter is creeping fast and hubby and I are discussing last night if we are going to Florida this winter. It is not only for just days that we are thinking about but for at least a month of stay. Because of that, I told hubby that we should start looking beach houses for rent in the area we want to stay. I prefer to stay close or very close to the seawater. It should be a walking distance and I should see the sunrise and if any case there is a place that we can see the sunset that is an extreme bonus for us. I would tremendously happy if we can find this place in Florida and that I also hope the cost is with in our budget. I am crossing my fingers to our plans.

Chinese Lantern

       My Chinese lantern is thriving well this year that I am planning to replant them close to the old barn and somewhere in the fence line. It is very pretty to take a good photo shooting with this plant it is blasting with colors.

Disk defrag

     Happy weekend everyone! It has been a cold weekdays thankfully it we had days that are decent I spend a lot outside cleaning the garden before winter come. Hubby was at his office the whole day and did not even get out for lunchtime. I went to see him and found out they are working on something in the computer. I heard him say about Disk defrag. Know what I do not have any idea what is that until he describe it to be a bit but it need for my little brain to take there language. I pick bits and pieces of information and in my little understanding; we need to defrag sometime our computer to speed up. I think disk defrag is what I need to do with my computer I have to suggest this to my hubby.

     I happen to find a website that has gibson melody maker. Hubby had one gibson guitar and he loves it. However, I have not seen him playing it but he loves buying guitars. I know how to play guitar but that was ten years ago though I have not forgotten some of the chords. Therefore, when hubby saw the gibson melody maker his eyes lit up I know he loves it I only wish I could afford it so I could give this guitar to him this Christmas.


     I just finished cooking my apple butter and it is my first time to do it. I have not put it in the jar I run out of jars. It was fun-doing things for the first time and in my cooking me always on a look out for new utensils that is useful in my cooking. I used sieves to separate the liquid from the solids and then I blend the solids so it would go through the sieves. A sieve is use in many ways it can be use in cooking, laboratories also use sieves and even farms used sieves. Of course, it differs on the size depending on what and how do you use it.

Bates Boots

     Today is super busy day for me I went to the mall to meet two of my friends for lunch. After lunch we went shopping for a bit and after that both of my friends went home. I was left alone in the mall so I went around and find a store for men. I was looking for a boots especially for winter. Here in Michigan it would be hunting season soon and that hubby needs a new boots for that. It is so hard to find a boots for him he has a problem with his left foot. So when I told him I was in this store he told me not to buy anything just to get the price and get a picture of it because he wants to fit it which is very understandable. When I got home I showed him the photos and he kind of liking some of the boots but not until he fit it that is when I could tell he really love it. We were at our patio while showing the photos when my brother in law came to our house. He knew what we are talking about and he told us to find Bates boots online. He always goes to this site to buy his boots and for him he likes it. Hubby relies on his brother so now he is looking at it.

Something White and Blue

Something white and blue. My very first time to wear white pants, off white shirt and blue jacket ^_^

 Linking to Faded Charm,

Fall is here!

Just like when I see dishes or knick knacks for the house I always told myself not to buy anymore but I end up buying some more. Well the same as the clothing, I told myself not to buy any for fall because I have many sweatshirts, blazers or jackets but I end up buying one or two. But hey, this is one thing that I am proud of I do not buy them in the regular store where you have to pay it for an arm and a leg. I bought them at a thrift store.

This one is so pretty when I saw this at the thrift store I grab it immediately and thought...you will come home with me! It is a Calvin Klein Jeans for sure this will cost around $30 or high but got this for $4.99 hehe

This is BCBG Maxaria and this is very elegant looking jacket, wohoo!

An old navy shirt I know what to put in with this one. 
I get so happy when I get good materials and dresses with less money. Do you also shop to thrift stores?
