Prayers Answered

More pictures, more gratitude. I did not post last week, so I am doing a make up.

I am thankful for more than ten things, I am sure. Here they are:

  • Desserts in a local nursing convention along with valuable learnings I picked up from many speakers. I can use them at work to improve patient care. The breakfast and lunch were tasty as well.
  • My grandson looks so cute with his dad here. They were taking selfies.

  • A music-filled night watching a Beetles tribute concert on a Valentine's night with friends. Guess where the group are from? Las Vegas, lol. They fooled us talking with an English accent all along until the end when they announced they are Americans. :) They were pretty good singing the popular songs of Beetles, though.
  • A Valentine's dinner before the concert in a new restaurant with all-you-can eat sushi. It is a new branch in our city called Sushi Katsu. 
  • Free champagne in red glass. We finished it fast and Paul might be too drunk making silly faces with it. :)
  • They have Taro dessert, an Asian cake, I like.

  • On a serious note, my auntie passed away after years of battling cancer. She is survived by one lucky son, and three lucky daughters who were blessed by her care, love, and support overy many years.
  • The flowers are from the gym my daughter and I go to. We exercise there and take our stresses out. It means a lot especially the week of the event that is best not to describe in great detail.
  • My son's trouble is over related to the event.
  • My daughter's trouble abruptly ended related to the event.
  • My prayers were answered related to the event.
  • The common denominator aside from the event is removed from our house. We will have a home again.
  • I thank God and the legal system for their assistance.
  • I thank the medical team who helped us.
  • I am happy and thankful beyond words. We celebrated with a family favorite cake--tres leches--for our freedom.
The lesson I learned here is not to take in any homeless person again. I should help some other way but to offer a spare room. It was not easy the last two years, to say the least. Thank God, it's over.

Have a good week, you all.

Ten Things of Thankful


  1. Oh, wow. I'm glad that the event is over and done.
    My condolences on the loss of your aunt.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. And I'm glad the event is over. Sounds like a delicious Valentine's day.

  3. Wow! Sometimes what seems like a way to help someone get out of a mess they are in, just instigates a bigger mess, perhaps for them and for others. But you tried.

    Your auntie looks like such a sweet lady. So sorry for your loss.

  4. Condolences on your aunt's passing.
    and, congratulations, (though surely not the correct word, I trust you take it's intent) on a satisfactory ending of a problem.
    Good TToT

  5. I'm so sorry for the loss of your aunt. She was a lovely lady and obviously loved.
    Glad your event is over and done with. I'm involved with an event as well, although not as bad as yours - mine is a deadbeat renter and the eviction process has begun.. Hope all of you heal from your event quickly!

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Sweet Times

Say hello to our new dog, Bando. He is an 8-week old boxer mix dog. We estimate he will grow and weigh up to 70 pounds. As my family got over the untimely death of our miniature poodle, Snowball, we all welcome this new baby, Bando, into the house. Josiah loves dogs and our dogs love him. They are all are very sweet.  We can't have too much sweetness in the house. So grandma got some cupcakes for them to decorate. Josiah decided to decorate his face instead though. It was a mix of cool nights and warm to hot days. It's nice to go out and be around the water, even man-made dams. We took a hike this morning. I am still growing plants, even indoors. Here is today's picture of my little aquaponics. Fish in the bottom, plants on top. I like these sprouts on my salad. I lost my father a few years ago. He died in the hospital after a few days stay. His passing, however painful to us, was a relief for him. I am thankful his suffering ended. I feel grateful for a good week. Happy

Week of Painting

I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
