Being a Mom

Motherhood is the most rewarding career. For me, nothing can top the feeling of becoming a Mom, even the most expensive stone on earth couldn't pay the joy that a mother has.
Simple messages and notes  that comes from your children always makes you feel like you are th most richest person in the world.
Some might disagree with what I have stated above but it's just my own opinion, I will respect yours.
Motherhood is like using barcode labels because you use different strategy for different occasions.

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day everyone! We are attending a memorial service in town at 11 am. Enjoy the holiday and freedom bestowed on us by those men and women in uniform who died serving and defending the country.
Photo was taken yesterday beside the old fire station in Weirton.  Here's a bleeding heart bloom to celebrate the Memorial Day!
Whenever we go visit  my in-laws, I always find time for myself with my camera.  Photography is my way of  having ME-time.

Family Gardening

I mentioned at my other blogs that we put up a garden a couple of weeks ago.  We bought railroad ties at Busy Beaver and put it in the corner of our yard.
The kids helped us in digging the ground.
Our Burritos raking and hoeing the ground after I separated the grass from the soil.
We added some  gardening soil in it and planted the seeds the next day.
We planted beans, cherry tomatoes, regular tomatoes, and three different kinds of lettuces.
They are now  growing and we can't wait to see the fruit of our labor.

Wednesday Whites, our Honda Accord

I got invited to another meme on Wednesdays. Thanks Raya for hosting this and for the invitation. The photos w below were taken a couple of weeks ago after we attended mass. Hubby took some snaps before we came in at my FIL's home.
Our white Honda Accord and my white top that I got for free at Listia.
The shoes I was wearing that day  is not originally mine,  it's from a friend I met when we were still  in Korea.  
Hope we could meet again  Ms. E.  Regards to your son David, Rylie still remember him as his Korean friend.

Sand Boxes

We have two sandboxes at our backyard. The turtle (green) one was given by my SIL and the boat (blue/gray) was given by our neighbor.  We have to buy  another bag of sand to put on the other one so they can use it.
Sand boxes are fancy but nothing can beat the joy I had when I was a kid where sand in the beach is endless. I grew up in a coastal area in the Philippines so I  had lots of fun  playing in the sand  during my childhood.  That's what my kids remembered and missing of our place, the fun time they had when we first brought them there.

Speaking about  my place, I talked to my mother last week when she picked up the money I sent her.

Google Friend Connect, Google Page Rank, and Blogging

I would like to thank to all the wonderful people who are spending time to  read my blogs and  for sharing their  valuable thoughts all the time.  Today, the GFC follower of this blog hit the four digit, yay!  Thanks everyone.  

Followers (1000More »

On the other note, Google  decided to take away  this blog's page ranking the other day, what a bummer.  Oh well, I guess I just have to work on it a little harder again to gain it back.

Next month will mark my 3 years of blogging. I started blogging on June 1st, 2008. Would you like to see my very first post, mouse over the link and see.

Let's get  connected through GFC, follow my blogs and I'll follow yours.  This is just a quick  post before we hit the road.  The weather is getting warm so our car is going to be a hot rod once again.  I am leaving you with this beautiful message I saw at the park.

Below is the blooms that my clematis plant brings this year. I thought that she won't bloom this year because I transplanted her from one place to another but I was wrong.
It is now in full bloom (haven't uploaded the latest pic I took).
Not sure what kind of flower this one is but I love it.  The flowers are close in the afternoon and opens up again in the morning.
My pink roses are  getting ready to open up the buds too.  I actually one that is opened this morning.  Oh it smells so good!
I will be getting ready to go to church afterwards.  Here's wishing you a blessed day and a lovely week ahead.

Remember this sunflower that my daughter gave me for mother's day?
We kept it for   several days  inside the house for it to grow.
Last weekend,  she planted them in the yard already.
Thank you so much my dearest Burrito for being such a loving daughter.  We love you so much!

See Through

People in the play area at the mall is probably thing that I'm crazy because when I looked up in the ceiling and saw the sky, I took a pic hehehe.  Anyhow, just leaving you my two cents of thought before going to bed.  G'nite everyone, thanks so much for your visits!

Artsy Kids

On the eve of Mother's Day, my burritos were in the mood to draw something. Mr. Burrito started it, he hid in our dining room where the illustration board is and started tracing his hand, then he told me to come and see his surprise for me.
Ms. Burrito heard what he said so she  went  and started drawing something.
Here are their  art works.  Ms. Burrito's drawing isn't finish yet, she added something to it  and made 5 copies of it (will show it later).
We're off to church folks, thanks for visiting and for leaving your thoughts.

Red Dress

Hello there everyone, I am chubskulit in bloglandia. When I was in elementary, our principal used to call me ROSALIE.  Then when I was in high school, my science teacher used to call me ROSALIND. When I went  to college and graduate school, everyone calls me ROSE.  Anyhow, enough of my  name history hehehe.

Can you blame me if I love roses?  The necklace with a rose pendant was given to me by my husband while the rose pin was given to me by my father-in-law.
 I love color RED, and this RED dRess caught my attention when we went to the mall.  Too bad, there's no size that would fit me because I am way "TINY" as most people addresses me lol.  Sometimes, in order for me to buy clothes that would fit, I go to teens section wahhhh.
Hope you guys are having a blast!

Nature's Goodness

Try to look around and appreciate what God has made for us. A short stroll in your yard will help you ease some worries, so grab your camera and take photos of simple things that interest you. That's what I do most of the time when my mind is cluttered with so much stuff.  God  gave all these for us to enjoy, so appreciate it.
I don't know what this plant/flower is called but when it blooms, the fragrance is really good!
I am not sure if this is a butterfly bush.
Let's all thank God for this wonderful land and everything that surrounds it.
