Caring for Your Pets at Home

My friend is so fond of her pet and sometimes you’ll think that she’s caring for a real kid and not a dog only. She takes care of her dog Sophie like her own kid as she will not miss any vaccination for the dog and once in while she takes Sophie to grooming salon and have her hair cut. When she cooks she always think of what’s good for Sophie to eat so they choose food sometimes on the kinds that her dog can eat. 

What’s amazing is that she has bought special bed for pets so her dog would be extremely comfortable in her small house while sleeping. During colder days she makes sure that Sophie is warm and convenient in her dog house because she experienced hearing Sophie making sounds that she’s not at ease with the cold weather. Now with Sophie’s new bed my friend will not worry anymore that her dog will get cold or uncomfortable. Such caring for a pet.

Music Ministry

We always have a meeting every Sunday except for the youth afternoon fellowship every 5th Sunday. More and more the members of the youth ministry are showing maturity over some important things in the Church like their youth activities and I’m happy about it because my two daughters are already one of them. Some of them are also interested to be part of the music ministry in the coming years to come while others are content already in hearing what they want to play. Because of such enthusiasm the elders in the music ministry discussed about the replacement of the instruments in the coming months if they can save enough money for the new instruments. 

For now they should maximize the use of the instruments they have already until the day that they will again purchase new sets of musical instrument and some accessories. I wonder when they will buy such things as m-audio fast track which works great and has good sound quality or other accessories that will help them when they’re playing in worship and praise. It’s vital that all instruments are in good working condition when it’s time for praising songs because it inspires us when they do background  for our beautiful music.

Perfect Time to Improve Our Homes

We had a spring cleaning of the house and it’s fun because we all worked for it including our dear little boy. Anyway he’s nearing 10 years of age and he really wants to participate and help. Since I did all necessary cleanups in the kitchen and bathroom he finds it necessary to help in that area too. He always wants to be near me just like any other youngest boy to his Mom. DH did the heavy tasks as expected and it’s good that his summer schooling is finished. Now we have all the time not just for family bonding but family projects too. 

We’re actually looking for something like an l clamp to use in fixing the kitchen pipes and faucets. I already asked my brother hoping that he has one in his construction site. I know he could find one in his warehouse and can also assign one of his workers to fix some needed problem areas in the house. Summer vacation is indeed a good time for repairing and improving the house because we have more time.

Learning Various Mixes to Enjoy Coffee More

 Image from Wikipedia

I love drinking coffee while I’m writing article or reviews. It somehow relaxes my senses and gives me creative ideas and thoughts. If others get nervous whenever they drink strong coffee well it’s the other way for me. When I need anything to calm me down and feel relaxed I just need a cup of my favorite coffee to bring me to the mood I love especially if I received whole bean coffee from our hometown which has a different fresh taste for me. 

I’m used to drinking instant 3-in-1 coffee because it’s so accessible to have as you can buy it anywhere but I still want freshly brewed coffee at times. My niece who is studying Barista course promised to teach me how to mix special coffee broths in espresso machine when she graduates from the short course. She knows I love coffee and would love to learn mixing cappuccino, mocha frappe and others.
