Almost His Birthday

My husband's birthday is coming up pretty soon and I literally don't have any idea as to what to give him for his special day. I might need to look up some gift ideas online, maybe it will help me to have an idea on something that he might like. My husband is one of those people who is so hard to find something when there is an occasion!

I Feel So Good That I Went To Church This Morning!

I feel so good right now knowing that I attended the mass this morning. Last night, I wasn't too confident that I would be able to go because I was really frustrated yesterday. It kinda affected my feeling about going to church in the morning and I thought for sure that I wouldn't be going. But when I woke up this morning, I felt really good thank GOD! I really don't like missing the mass on Sundays. Last Sunday I didn't get to go for my two boys were sick. I am just so happy that I made it this morning!

Health Benefits Of Drinking Wine

I am not a big wine drinker, I probably only drink it every once a year, that is if there is a very special occasion. Anyway, I heard that there are so many health benefits from drinking wine! Some of its benefits are: Reduces risk of a heart-attack, reduces the risk of a type 2 diabetes, lower the risk of a stroke and can even cuts risk of a colon cancer. Now those are just a few of the health benefits you can get from drinking wine MODERATELY, that means one to two four ounces of glasses a day!

Anyhow, wine is not hard to find at all. You can find it at a liquor store, grocery store and can even find wine online. There are so many people who loves to drink wine. They've been around for how many thousands of years. And the more they aged the better it taste, that's what I always heard! Anyway, below is a fun infographic about an argument of wine's health benefit. Please check it out to see the verdict!

Totally Exhausted!

I am about to conk out right now as I am typing this post. I have been so sleepy all day and I'm totally exhausted. I've been out almost all day. Went grocery shopping, left at 10:30 in the morning and got back home at 4 pm, so we were basically out all day! 

But I woke up about 6 in the morning to get my son ready for school. I usually go back to sleep after he leaves but this morning I didn't because me and my mother-in-law already planned last night that we were gonna left early which was around 10:30. So I did not go back to sleep, instead, I straightened out the house a little so when I get back from our errands I don't have to look at a messy house because I know I would be exhausted and yes I was and still am!

Anyhow, I'm very sleepy right now but I'm not ready to go to bed yet. So I think I'm gonna grab me a cup of coffee to help me wake up a little bit! Hopefully it'll help!

Everything Is Expensive

Everything is so expensive these days. It's hard to get your money's worth anymore. From Health Care Costs Through the Roof to the gas prices sky-rocketing again! I mean what is there cheap for consumers to buy? Hardly nothing!

Most of us are having a hard time making ends meet. Some people use their car titles to take to places like Title Loans in El Paso TX who accepts titles for money loans just to get through the day! And it is getting harder everyday. The economy is not getting any better. All we could do is hope for the best!

A Surprised Package For Free!

I didn't expect at all that I'll be receiving a package in the mail today and the best part about is, they were FREE! I got a pair of red tights and a pair of denim leggings sent by one of the paying blog sites that I am a member to. It is part of their product sampling. I remembered signing up for it when it was first started but that was about 2 or 3 months ago, so this was really unexpected!

But I am glad anyway for I got them for free, plus when they'll send me an offer next week to write a post about it, I'll get paid too! I am so looking forward for it! Blogging lately for me has been so scarce, I hardly got any tasks this week and the previous weeks. So I am definitely thrilled for this opportunity!

Gold And Silver Fever

Gold mining is so much fun. I knew because I've experienced it before. It is more fun when you find some gold. When we did some gold mining about 5 years ago, we found us a little gold and we still have it. With gold prices sky-rocketing almost everyday, that will be a perfect choice to invest your money in like buying gold bullion coins!

Anyway, you'll definitely get hooked once you find your first gold. It is very exciting indeed! I could not believe that I actually found a very tiny piece of valuable metal like gold. And it is very addicting, once you tried it, you'll want to do it more and more. That's what they called as "Gold Fever".

Anyhow, below is an infographic about Gold and Silver Fever. Take a look at it and you will be amazed of what people will do in the name of Gold and Silver!

Freezing Cold Already!

Yikes! Fall just officially started a couple of days ago but we're already experiencing a freezing cold weather. This morning when I took my son to the school bus it was just freezing! And I went outside with just flip flops, light jacket and a shorts on! I about froze my butt off! Well, I was gonna drive the car down to the bus stop but when I turned it on, the gas was almost empty! If I went ahead and drove it down there, we would not have enough to go to the gas station to fill it up. 

So I told my son to just get out of the car and we'll walk down to the bus stop! Of course he complained because it was really cold which I don't blame him at all! But anyway, I just hope that we it is not gonna be a bad winter this year! I really don't like it when it gets too cold!

Upgrading Patio

Who's to say that upgrading means that you have to literally buy brand new items to replace everything that looks old?. You don't necessarily have to buy everything new to replace old stuff, you can still salvage some of the old ones. For example, if you are upgrading your patio and have some old furnitures, you don't really have to replace them all. Doing an outdoor furniture repair is actually not that hard if you are already a handyman yourself and loves to do-it-youself stuff or you can even hire somebody to do it for you who specializes in refinish patio furniture!

I mean if you are a do-it-yourselfer person who has all the patience, the talent and into saving some big bucks then I guess you are very welcome to do the upgrading yourself. But if you don't have that talent because not everybody does, you can always hire the professional people to do the work for you! There are a lot of companies out there that can do the job for you but are they really good and you also got to look at the price as well!

If I were to recommend a company to do some some upgrading on someone's patio, I would be glad to recommend the Patio Guys! Why? Because first, they have been in the business for over 30 years and therefore have the experience to do all sort of repairing or refinishing all kinds of outdoor furniture. They've served over 30,000 satisfied customers since 1978 and refinished more than 30,000 pieces of furnitures! I don't know about you but that's a lot of numbers to me. The more is the better, because it can only means that they have the experienced to do such thing!

But if I were you, you shouldn't take somebody elses word for it. You got to check it for yourself. Head on to their website by clicking either of the links provided above and read more information about these guys. You can also see what kind of repairing and refinishing they do and products that they carry for purchase! Start browsing, they are definitely worth your time!

His Artistic Side!

My oldest son has always been so fond of painting since when he was just a little over a year old. I guess I can say that he got that from me since I love to draw and paint too. But it has been years and years since the last time I did one and I really do miss doing it! 

Anyway, I am pretty sure that if not all, most kids love to paint because it is a lot of fun to play with colors plus it's messy! LOL! I usually don't let my son paint anymore because I do not want to have to deal with the mess afterwards. Every time he ask me, I would make some kind of excuse to get him to stop bugging me about it. I know I sound cruel but I just couldn't deal with the mess! LOL!

Anyhow, last week my mother-in-law bought my son this kit to paint little pumpkins, it has 3 little pumpkins, one paintbrush and acrylic paints. My got son so excited when he came home the other and wanted to paint right away. I told him that if he does good in school and get purple (excellent) that he'll get to paint the next day since they didn't have school them, so he agreed finally after pitching a little fit. The next day he came home with purple and wether I liked it or not, I had to let him paint after he came back from his nana's house the next day because I promised him that I would let him if he gets purple.

And I am actually very glad that I let him paint because first, he didn't make any mess at all! Not a single drop of paint can be seen on the table or on the floor but of course I had to put newspaper on the table. Aside from not making any mess, my son had a wonderful time painting, he enjoyed every minute of it and I did too. I was snapping a bunch of pictures of him while he was painting which are some attached below...

I think he did an excellent job painting those pumpkins!!!

Celebrity-Like Make-Up

Who doesn't want to look like a celebrity? I think if not all, most of us women does! I mean look at them, their skin look so perfect, so smooth and young looking! It's like they don't age at all. Well, all of that because of high-cost cosmetic maintenance that I'm pretty sure they can very-well afford! 

But the fact of the matter is, not all of us can afford to buy expensive make-up or face cream, etc. But, there are an affordable alternative out there that you can find to achieve that celebrity-like make-up that you want like the Bh Cosmetics. They are not as expensive as the ones that celebrity use but they are as good! Anyway, below you can see an infographic of how much your favorite celebrity spends just to achieve the younger looking looks!

No More Tomatoes Left

Well it's official, our tomato bearing season is over! LOL! We harvested as much tomato fruits that we can get from our tomato plants! It was fun while it lasted and we sure had a good time and enjoyed every tomato fruit that we got. We are just so happy that our tomatoes did so well this year. 

We'll definitely plant some more next year and do exactly what we did this year. Whatever we did this time sure made a huge difference, unlike last year that we did not get to harvest a single tomato from our plants! So we'll see next year if we'll get lucky again!

UGHH! I have been suffering with this headache since I woke up this morning! I don't know if this is from dehydration or from not drinking coffee this morning. I get headache when I don't get to drink coffee, they call it caffeine withdrawal. For some reason, I just didn't feel like drinking coffee when I got up which was very unusual because I usually crave for one when I get up in the morning. 

So anyway, me and my mother-in-law went to the dump to throw the garbage, and as soon as I got home I made me a cup of coffee hoping that my headache will go away but it didn't! I am still suffering with it right now and I have been drinking a bunch of water. I hope this will go away by tomorrow because I have to go to church and I sure don't want to deal with especially when I am driving!

High-Speed Internet That's Not So Fast!

I don't know what's up with our so-called "high-speed internet" but it's been so slow for about a month now! I am really starting to get so irritable with this! Our satellite internet before didn't have this much trouble. Everyday, we get disconnected multiple times a day, webpage won't load right. It's like every time I click on the browser it'll say page not loading and it's really getting old! I am just frustrated right now!!! Grrrrrr! I am boiling inside and I could not help it feeling like this!

Investing In Gold

Most of us knows that gold is one of the most precious metals there is. It is highly sought to be used to make coins, jewelry and other things. There are so many people who are crazy about mining gold. There was a point where me and my husband got hooked up with it. Well, my husband had been so interested in mining gold since he was just a teenager. He taught me how to properly pan a gold. I remembered when I first found my first nugget, it was just a very small piece, hubby said about $25 value back then, I was static and amazed that I actually found a small nugget. After that, I was all geared-up that hubby actually took me gold  mining. We found a little bit of gold, we didn't sell it, we kept it for keepsake and who know that might come in hand in the future!

Anyway, with gold prices increasing almost everyday, about $1600+ an ounce, I think it is just smart for someone to invest their money in gold. There are so many kinds of gold that you can invest to, an example is American eagle gold coin. There are so many reasons why you should invest your money in gold, first is they are so valuable these days that if something is going to happen you can always use it to pay or trade for stuff, kinda like in the old days. Second, the idea of having it with you physically where you can take it with you wherever you go and not to worry about investing your money like in stocks where it can disappear in one blink of an eye if computers crash!

Anyhow, if you are already planning in investing your money in gold coins, the best place to get it is by clicking the link provided above. They have huge selections of gold coins! From American eagle gold coin to International gold coins like Mexican, Australian, Chinese, Canadian golds and more! They even have collectables and commemorative golds! Please check out the link and see for yourself the kinds of gold you can invest your money on!

So Much Leads But No Offers So Far

Yesterday I received so much leads on one of the blogging paid sites that I am member but so far I haven't received any offers. I received at least 8 leads, 2 each for my 4 blogs but no offers yet. I would be happy if at least I get one or two offers out of that 8 leads. I still have hope, they just sent it to me yesterday, sometimes it takes days for the offers to come. I'm crossing my fingers here!

More Sentimental

In my opinion, personalised gifts are more sentimental to give than just regular plain gifts to your loved ones. I think it's because you put so much thought of what to put on it. I always love giving personalized gifts to my loved ones or closed friends and so far they loved it!

What's Left Of Our Tomato Plants

Pictures above are what's left of our tomato plants. Although they look almost dead, they are still giving us beautiful fruits. These fruits are about ready to be harvested. My husband said about harvesting them later today. We are just so thrilled that our tomatoes are doing so good this year. We definitely got paid off from the hard work that we did!

Freshly Harvested Tomatoes

Pictures above are of our Brandywine and Roma tomatoes that I harvested a few hours ago. Don't they look so good and healthy? I am just thrilled that our tomatoes are doing so great this year! These are just half of what we have right now. These are the ripe ones that needed to be harvested since they're getting really ripe! 

We still got plenty left on the plants about to get ripe pretty soon too. I don't know if we'll be able to eat all of these tomatoes but we do eat a lot of them, they're very good especially since they are very fresh! We can always take it to church and share it with our friends there if we can't eat all of it!

I Love Working Online

I do not know what I would be doing if computer and internet didn't exist! I'll probably die of boredom just to be honest! Right now, about 40% of my time revolves around using the computer and internet. I use those times to bring in some extra cash a month. Aside from blogging, I also sell on Ebay and to this newly found group on Facebook called Yardsale where Filipinas can sell their unused things that they don't want anymore. I also have another sideline where all I have to do is search and click links on google, like pages on facebook, comment on articles, blogs or videos and get paid to do all that simple tasks. 

The payment is not much, I'd say the average payment is about 30 cents. Not much right? But if you work hard enough, those cents can turn into a hundred! Oh yes and a proof to that is my words that I just withdrew a hundred bucks earlier! In fact, it is my 3rd time to withdrew there. The first time I withdrew $28 and the second time $50. So I already earned almost $200 in 3 months from working there. 

That may not sound much but that is so much better than earning nothing while sitting in front of the computer! That's almost $200 that I did not have before! You can't blame me for loving my sidelines online and the best part for me is I can earn a little money, don't have to leave home and still get to spend most of my time with my family!

Copywriting Course

Just to be honest, I have never heard of a copywriting before until last night. I've heard of copyright but they're actually two different things. So I had to do some research online just to understand what copywriting means. Based on my research, copywriting is use for marketing or advertising a product, business and more. I also read that it is one of best paying jobs in writing industry...

Anyway, if you have passion for writing, did you know that you can improve it by taking a Copywriting Course? There is a lot of potential that you will get hired by big companies if you are very creative in your writing and get paid really well. Or you can be an independent writer and be your own boss. It's your choice!
