To ALL Dads...

My father is no longer with us so I only have my brothers [and my husband] to greet on this day. But I found this poem online by an Unknown Author which I want to dedicate to my Father who I dearly miss!

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died
In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

Productive Weekend!

Finally! A weekend without much rain so we were able to do the things we wanted to. It wasn't completely free of rain though. It did rain a little on Saturday just after the husband finished mowing. We originally planned of planting some bottlebrush trees along the property but it had to wait because mother nature decided to sprinkle the newly cut grass.

Sunday was a totally dry day though. Tree planting was done as planned. We [more like 'he', the husband] planted 6 bottle brush trees. We thought we would need a couple more but we decided to stick with the 6 we already have. Hubby bought them last weekend. The only glitch we had was we ran out of plant food and dirt. But super hubby flew..err, drove to Lowe's and got what we needed and then some.

I tried to pull some weeds while he was planting while the little one helped him by 'watching'...LOL. We helped him by putting mulch around them. It was a fun experience for the little one of course. We're planning in planting some more plants this weekend. Maybe around the big trees in the backyard. The little one sowed some flower plants a few weeks ago and some came out victorious while the others decided to 'perish'. The plants are now ready to conquer the big world, yard, so we're going to let them loose soon.

Here's a picture of the before and after of our planting activity this weekend.

Now we just have to wait for them to grow....with a lot of watering involve of course. Well, let's hope it rains enough so they can be watered without me moving a finger. Ha!

Nothing Much....


...going on around here. Life has been pretty boring as usual. The weather is still as unpredictable as it has always been. We were spared of rain for the past few days. It did rain a little bit last night but it didn't last long. It's very hot outside though so even if it's not raining, we don't go out much because it's just way too hot.

Other than the 'exciting' weather we have around here, nothing much has been happening. Work is at a standstill. Not sure when it will be busy again but I'm hoping it's going to be soon. You would think I'd be updating this blog more now that work is slow but I'm not. Ugh!

Anyway, it's midweek again and weekend is of course just around the corner. No big plans for us. I'm thinking we can go see a movie or something this weekend. There's a few I want the little one to see....Up and Night of the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.

Up is on 3d I believe so it would be neat to let the little one see it. We saw Aliens vs. Monsters in 3D and she loved it. We didn't see Night of the Museum 1 in theaters but we caught it on FX this weekend and she also liked, it would be great for her to see the sequel. Hopefully, the weekend will be dry so we can do that.
