Little Customer

How's your weekend everyone? I hope you had a wonderful one. Ours was OK. We ran some errands last Saturday. Early morning we went to Wellsfargo to get our Homestead notarized, but the banker was busy.
So, we left and drove to Chase. When we were at Chase, the line was super long...waaaaa! Hubby was getting frustrated. Anyhow, we got our document notarized at UPS.
Here's the little customer....patiently waiting in the lobby.

Baby Chicks

Up close with the baby chicks....
Too bad this little lady wasn't able to hold one. Photos were taken last weekend at San Antonio Rodeo & Stock Show. This is my entry for Camera Critters.
Camera Critters
Y'all have a wonderful weekend. Will pay a visit after the weekend. Thanks for dropping by!


Convenience as the end product of technology is what I see as one of the perks of living in the modern society. We are practically dependent on high technology to run our everyday lives, from our home that uses one-touch technology to create a meal, to our offices that uses income & expenses spreadsheet  to practically monitor a company’s financial performance with out delay. And if human resource is a problem there are now employee handbook template  that can be downloaded. There are practical ebooks available in just a click in whatever field you need it. All these come in a package that sets an avenue to make life easy.

On a more personal note, indeed our lives are practically stringed with technology, even the dumbest has the guts to utilize Facebook to communicate with the world, why worry when there’s this facebook guide  that will instruct you on what to click next. So don’t be afraid to try.

This phenomenon is inevitable; we are strained to ride with it whether we like it or not.

ABC Wednesday: Furry Friend

 He's not only my daughter's furry friend, he is my daughter's best friend.  
 Our furry chow dog is 10-years old, and his name is BUDDY. We got him five years ago from SPCA before my daughter was born. 
They're inseparable. They both sleep in the same!
When our dog got sick, my daughter was so worried. She was there at the hospital comforting her furry friend. She hugged him tight and told him "you'll be ok Buddy boy, I love you". I felt like I was about to cry when I heard her saying it. I thought it was so sweet!
This is my entry for this week's ABC Wednesday.

Chinese Scrolls

I bought a couple of Chinese scrolls during our visit to the Asian Festival weekends ago. I am very fascinated with Chinese writing. How I wish I know how to read them. I paid $45.00 for these two scrolls. I know it seems a little bit too high, but I just love them.
Hundred Happiness. A100 different ways to write the word 'Happiness'
I have no idea what this symbol means, anybody?

This is my entry for this week's Ruby Tuesday!

World’s Toughest Rodeo

How's your weekend everyone? Our weekend was awesome. We went to a rodeo show last Saturday and watched a concert show. Then Sunday we went to church and had a scrumptious barbecue dinner at home. How about you?
Btw, have you ever been to a rodeo before? I have seen it on TV, but nothing can compare with seeing live rodeo. Seeing a courageous and strong cowboy holding for his dear life on top of a wildly bucking bull is overwhelming. It was a lot of fun watching them. We would love to see it again next year.
Hubby said: Look at my pretty cowgirls!
After the concert we went to the barn to see some animals.
Photo not mine.
I was not allowed to bring my DSLR inside. So I left it at the costumer service. They said "any detachable lens or professional cameras are not allowed". I'm glad I brought my handy dandy camera with me. Here's a video for yah! Sorry for the "not so clear" result. 
I heard that "the bulls were tough this year, like the bareback bronc, only a few brave riders were able to hold on for what seems to be the longest 8 seconds in the world." Pretty amazing!

How's your weekend everyone? I hope you had a wonderful one. Ours was a well-spent weekend. Last Saturday morning hubby had a conversation on the phone with a friend regarding on upcoming trip this summer. Oh, I just can't wait for the big-O event. After talking on the phone, we went to the mall to pick up my glasses, then drove to the Rodeo Show. Sunday was a mellow day. We did not go to church because hubby wasn't feeling well, but on the afternoon we went to walmart to get some grocery stuff. How about you?

Coping With Debt

Americans of every class find themselves struggling with debt. The economy has been in a slump for quite some time now, forcing many Americans to deal with overwhelming debt. There are many reasons for increased debt such as foreclosing on a home, losing ones job, or losing money to the stock market. Whatever the reason for your debt, you should know you are not alone and visit for debt relief.

Hiring the right company to reduce and manage debt will bring a world of relief to anyone suffering from money management qualms. Such a company usually does not request money until results are seen, and can arrange for someone with debt to pay less they what they currently owe. It can take a lifetime to pay off a maxed out credit card with a high interest rate, and can leave one feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. However, credit card debt relief can help with credit card debt relief. As Americans we no longer have to wait a lifetime to be rid of credit card debt, but can be on the road to a better financial future in as little as 18 months. Depending on the amount and severity of debt it could take longer, but working with a professional will provide piece of mind and a solution to the problem.

Without help Americans find themselves falling deeper and deeper into debt. The problem seems, even with a secure income Americans are spending too much of that income to pay off their debt; therefore, these same Americans must use credit to buy groceries, clothing and pay other bills. It is a downward spiral for these people, but it must be realized that there is no shame in seeking help and the sooner one does the sooner debt relief is

A Grandeur Sunset

Honestly, you don't need to have a DSLR to be a good photographer, and having one doesn't automatically make you take better photos. Also, you don't need the DSLR to take good pictures. However, the flexibility sure can help. Take for example this grandeur sunset I took yesterday from our room window.

Not bad for a canon point and shoot camera right? I was going to use my DSLR camera yesterday, but I found out it needs to be charged. So instead I used my handy dandy point and shoot camera. I am very pleased with the outcome.

This is my entry for this week's Skywatch Friday.

Snow Flurry

I suppose to blog about this last Friday, but I was occupied on that day. Anyhow, we had snow flurry last Friday! It is a miraculous thing when we get the white stuff here in San Antonio. As far as know, the last time it snowed here was 26 years ago.
My entry for Blue Monday. Canyon street neighborhood.
Hubby did not go to work that day. Well he drove a mile away, but then he came back. He decided to work from home instead. It's always not safe driving on the first day of snow.
This is our backyard, and behind is the pond. The snow was not even an inch. It was just a snow flurry kind. I hope it won't snow again! Now we are back to 60's and up degrees.
Thanks for dropping everyone! How's your weekend? Will pay a visit tomorrow for sure.
