Happy Birthday Treats

It's my birthday today. I know, it is not a Wednesday, but I worked yesterday in exchange to today's whole day off. Aside from I-am-still-sick-with-a-cold, and I need a break from wearing a mask, I deserve a day off on my day. That is why I am late posting in ABC Wednesday.

Here are my Hs this week.

  1. My teen daughter gave a bag of gifts with Hostess donuts, Hershey's candy, Half and Half Iced tea, a Happy Birthday balloon, and a Happy Birthday card. Paul gave me flowers and a box of chocolates. There is an h in chocolates, so it counts. 
  2. H is for ham. I am still enjoying the $6 half-ham I bought from Costco.
  3. My dryer broke so I have to add that I have to hang my clothes these days. Thanks for the rack that I kept from a long time ago. I thought I donated it.
  4. Speaking of donation, and enough about me, since yesterday was the beginning of Lent, I decided to do something different and declutter my home and collect some bags of things to donate. I am giving up stuff that other people can still use and donating them to my favorite group Vietnam Vets. Talk about dual purpose act--cleaning my home and helping the vets. Now that will make me happy.

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.
