    One of my friends’ daughter is into musical instruments. I have read on the mom’s Facebook page how her daughter loves to play the clarinet. I like it. My kids like music and they love their guitars and keyboard but none of them really put fort effort to master anything. It is really a shame because I think they have potential. But, they are young still, perhaps there is still a chance as they get older. Anyway, I remember about my friend’s daughter when I saw a clarinet tuner at wwbw.com while browsing through different websites. I really like the fact that one does not need to go to the stores to shop anymore. Everything is within one’s fingertips.

    And it is almost time to garden. I am so excited! You might think I don’t have much going if I get excited over the change in season but this is the time when I garden. The long walks on the beach is something to look forward to, if I am honest. But the warm days to plant seeds and watch things grow is rewarding and worth all the wait. The garden is ready, we just need to make a little area to start seedlings so we can plant as soon as the last frost is over. We will try to grow our own seedlings this year, well except for the onions, which we bought from the store and are already in the ground. I will probably inundate you with nothing but photos of vegetables as they grow, lol. We bought compost from the landfill so we are hoping for better produce this year. It will be fun!

    With the advent of advanced technology, people are now able to get online not just on their laptops but also on any mobile device that are wifi capable. This was unheard of years ago. There were phones, yes, but only used to call and text. Those phones from long ago were not wifi ready so consumers had to have a computer if they want to get online to either read the news or shop. Right now, it is easy to get on online stores like m.guitarcenter.com full site on our smartphones. No more getting on computers. This is one of the things I like about the technological advance we are experiencing right now. Everything is accessible. The phrase “right in your fingertips” has never been this literal. I love it.

    This is my last semester at school. How time flies! I did not think it will happen this quick but here I am. I am already sending out resumes, hoping that I will get hired. I know it will not be easy considering my almost nonexistent work history but I believe that if something is meant for me it will happen. I will just have to be patient while waiting. While waiting, I will enjoy whatever time I have with my kids. I know that it will change once I start working. And too, I will enjoy my free time relaxing. I think I deserve that. If I have to spend my time reading about musiciansfriend switchcraft then I will, if it makes me happy. There will be a lot of reading in my future too, all fiction, of course. And since it is starting to get warm, a lot of gardening. I could not wait to not be reading textbooks anymore. I am almost there!

    These beauties were harvested from a calamondin tree I have bought online four years ago. It came in a box, looking so tiny and fragile that the husband laughed at how ridiculous I was for spending money on a plant that “will not make it”. He was wrong on that prophecy and has since atoned by helping me take care of said plant which has grown at least six feet tall. Such a feat considering it was supposed to be a dwarf. The tree has given us so much produce that it has more than made up for the expense and labor we put in it. These batch is our last harvest for the year. We are looking forward to more in the coming months.

    My kids sleep like to sleep with some kind of music playing in the background. I do not let the music play all night long, I turn it off as soon as they are asleep. We have found a channel on Youtube that has several videos of relaxing music and they have picked one that they have listened to for about a year now. It is so soothing that it does help you relax and go to sleep. It is on very low, sometimes even barely audible but it still works its magic. It does not use the likes of jupiter saxophone but it does the job well. I used to like to sleep with a relaxing music on but the husband dislikes the sound because he said it makes him unable to hear anything else. He wants to sleep with no sound whatsoever. So, even if I do like to listen to music to sleep or while sleeping, I cannot anymore. It is fine with me though, I am already used to it.

    img_0647Once upon a time, we went to a Jollibee here in the U.S. This was my first time to be at a Jollibee restaurant in a very long time. Nine years, if you want me to be specific. This trip was an anniversary gift from the husband. It was a cold day in January when it happened. And it was worth the five hours drive and traffic to get there. The food did not disappoint. Even the husband and kids loved their choices of food. I was in food heaven for a short while. If I could, I would have ordered all the food in the menu but there was the problem of eating it all by myself. The above photo was my breakfast. Yes, I eat fried chicken, rice and gravy for breakfast. The husband had rice and some meat with slices of tomatoes that he ate with gusto. The little man had yum burger and fries while the little girl got a toy. I guess I was wrong when I said everybody loved their food because the little girl did not eat but a few pieces of fries. She was more interested with the toy that came with the little man’s meal. All in all it was a good experience. I would repeat it every month if I could but I don’t think my husband is that generous. Lol!

    When my son asked if we could buy him new guitar picks, I wanted to let the husband buy it for him. I mean, I could but that would mean bringing the whole crew with me to the store and then run the risk of incidents at the music store. There is a music store by the mall close to our house but I did not feel like going. I thought if I could just get online and buy the items for him everybody should be happy. It is a good thing that stores like guitar center offers guitar picks I can order online. I do not have to know guitar center opening hours at all! All I need to do is pick what I want, pay for it, and it should be in my mailbox in a few days. And the best part, I do not have to brave the mall crowd to go to the music store. Winning! 😀
