Refreshing Home Ideas

One of my brother’s residential projects is on its finishing stage and he’s excited about his design on the kitchen. He has already installed built-in oven and in the process of polishing cabinets. He added some undermount drawer slides full extension on the cupboards so he can show it to the owner if that will suffice to the required specifications. His client is a little bit conventional on some designs and he needs to check if those installed accessories and equipment conform to his taste.

Well my brother’s designs are always commendable and suits the needs of his client that he’s always referred to their friends. Now that his daughter is taking up Architecture he has someone to help him come up with new fresh home design ideas. In fact his current residential design was made by his daughter and it was well accepted and praised by his new client. We’re glad that some of my brother’s kids have the same flair and inclination as his.

Loves Being at Home

Mom stays at home most of the times as she loves being in the house reading and doing some gardening rather than going to the malls. On some occasions we coax her to join us when we eat in restaurants or shop in the malls but she insists that we do not stay long as her knees wouldn’t bear it. We understand her as she’s already 80 and though she’s very healthy for her age she has arthritis that strikes most when the weather is cold, the reason why she didn’t want to walk for long on malls. 

Last weekend she told us that she’ll rather stay home than go shopping so she just listed all she needs at home which includes home decors, new place mats on the table. She also told my sister that she need a new watch and if my sister could choose from the citizen watches she saw in the mall last month it would be perfect for her. She prefers the old time style of gold watches and even at home she still looks like her profession , a teacher. She still has the dignified and respectable look and character of her old job which makes me think that a teacher will always be a teacher no matter how she grows old.

Changing Eating Habits and Lifestyle

Since it’s the first month of the year people are having reflection about their life and many seems to be thinking of changing their eating habits and lifestyle. One of my close online friends chooses to do juicing of fruits and vegetables to remove excess pounds for a healthier weight. She has a daily maintenance of 5 various medicines for her rare disease but now after taking healthy juices for several months her health improved a lot.

Her doctor decreased her intake of medicine and she couldn’t be happier. Now if you would ask her for the best cigars to recommend she’s not that sure because she has given everything for her health. She wouldn’t know now what’s the best as her priority now is maintaining and keeping herself fit and healthy.

Fun in the City Circle Park

We had so much fun in the City Circle Park where we spent our first day of the year. Not much to prepare as we just brought our New Year’s eve feast and share all our food with our church friends. I remember being there when my second daughter was just an infant and now she’s turning 14 on Saturday, time flies and I can’t believe those years passed without giving that place a visit. Well the place is very different now than before as various restaurants lined one part of the park and there’s a nice amusement park on the other side of the place. We’ve rented a small place in the most quiet part of the park and we there we had our little games and some singing. 

We just wanted to start the day with us together and with happy thanksgiving to God for keeping us safe, healthy and protected all year round. We already had our gift giving and exchange gift in the church where we each received one or more gifts like bags, clothes, home decors, toys for the kids, some personal stuff like pens, hankies, acrylic cups with straws and many other things. 

I promised my kids that we’ll come back there to enjoy the amusement park where they can ride and enjoy various games, of course when it’s not a holiday because the park is jammed with people and everything you want to ride you have to fall in line and wait for some time. Since we have some church programs we can’t be away for more than an hour because we will not be able to enjoy the company of our church friends.
