Its spooky celebration! I am strolling in the malls and many people are in costume for the scariest activity of the year. Different kinds of costumes from fairies, superheroes, angels, horror personalities, celebrities and many more persons or things to personify for this kind occasion. Though there is an office today I try to be in the occasion. I wear my black blouse with some named glitter in front and a see through back. Simple and fits for the Halloween theme. For me this kind of activity is all about fun, fun and fun. Happy Halloween!
I was given by a relative a box of organic coffee last weekend. Well she knows that I am a morning coffee person and I would definitely like drinking coffee especially that it is made of organic ingredients. The coffee tastes great with blends of herbs like ginger, mushroom, moringa and other organic ingredients. Each box contains twelve packs of sachets. I love the taste! It is not the typical sweet blend of commercial coffee. I do not feel the stomach acidity and it makes me feel good for the entire day. It pays to patronize organic products this time because of its good health benefits.
Mark 10:46-52As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a sizable crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging. 47 On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.”48 And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me.” 49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage; get up, he is calling you.” 50 He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus. 51 Jesus said to him in reply, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man replied to him, “Master, I want to see.” 52 Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way. The gospel is about continued faith and hope especially on this uncertain times. Each one of us has our own times of life. God is an all loving God who will never abandoned us. Keep up the faith and trust for He cares.
Our family had a get together last Friday as a welcome treat by our visitor, a family friend who flew in for a short vacation visit. She treated us for a lunch at a specialty restaurant in the mall. Foods ordered were spinach soup, moringa seafood noodles, crispy&spicy pork liempo, buttered prawns, stir friend vegetables, soft drinks and some desserts. An enjoyable day for all of and a good timing also because it was a non working holiday. Lots of chats and update about each other because it was not as often as we were doing this lunch get together. A great time to unwind and savor good food servings once in a while.
I was busy last weekend on some household chores. Bad thing was my bother just recovered from flu and my sister was starting to have flu also. Most of the household things were done by me. Too tired! I checked the wall clock and found out that it was no longer functioning so I decided to bought one size double battery from a store. My brother fixed it inside the clock and now it is functioning again. The life of the battery usually lasts for two to three months. Good service anyway because it is not the rechargeable kind but the disposable one.
I am using a ladies watch on my left wrist and it come to my mind at this moment to write a post about this quality kind of timepiece. My watch is about six years already and I can say that I invested in a good kind of watch so far. For six years, the battery was just replaced last week (for the first time) since my last purchased of it. It is two toned in colors gold and silver bracelet. Elegant to use whether I am at work or at any occasion. I do not have to be protect it from moisture like rain or to exposure in the sun because the protection is made of quality metal. If given an opportunity to buy another watch, I would see to it that I have quality timepiece.
Sometimes it is fun to do some window shopping even if you do not have any intentions at all of buying. One weekend afternoon, I was able to bought a green colored ladies’ top blouse. Green is my favorite color and the blouse immediately captured my attention. It is made from a known brand and I checked out the quality and design, I was interested and it fitted well with me. I immediately bought it at a sale price. Nice to pair with fitting skiny jeans with pumps, platform shoes or wedge sandals. Now I have a reserved outfit to wear for any occasion coming up especially that Christmas time is just a few months to go.
I love gardening at home. It is one of my favorite past time as it has many good benefits for me. A great form of physical exercise and at the same time a stress reliever after some hard days of work. This time is a perfect season for gardening because the weather compliments well for the growth of flowers and ornaments. I am planning to buy some fav planters from an exclusive garden shop. The planters are great organizer for plants either in the backyard, patios, gardens or even in the home interiors. It creates a neat look especially when arranged according to the kind of plants that are placed in it. I found this idea from my reading sources and it makes more fun and exciting for me to work in my gardens.
I want to give myself a simple gift for this year because for me my life begins now being at the mid age. Sometimes it is good to have some small pampering after hard work for many years. I bought a set of silver earrings for myself. It is a pair of simple but elegant design of clip on earrings. It has studded stones and can be worn at any activity and wardrobe that I have. I choose the one with a built in lock so that it would be easy for me to clip it and detached it when in use. The silver kind of jewelry for me is one versatile accessory. A nice item to deserve on my special day.
My birthday only happens once a year and I want to treat myself some delicious indulgence especially in my pasta dishes. I prepared some salad macaroni yesterday. A chicken macaroni salad actually because I added some shredded chicken meat on my servings. I always cook pasta at home with complete ingredients as always so that the taste will be more flavorful. Mayonnaise, salad dressing, fruit cocktail,crushed pineapple, raisins , nata de coco,condensed milk – these are my ingredients for the macaroni salad. It tasted so good and everyone at home just loved it especially that it was chilled overnight and the ingredients mixed well and created a great salad flavor. I hope to cook again some salad macaroni in the next coming celebrations.
