Long Weekend For Labor Day Holiday

It is another great weekend for us.  Long weekend because of the Labor Day holiday.  We are visiting my husband's parents right now and we are planning to have rib-eye steak for dinner tonight.  Woohoo!  My husband haven't eaten steak in a while. Of course, my family is having great fun here in Tyler again. 

After I finished packing for our trip yesterday, my daughter and I went outside for a stroll.  While she was having a great time riding on the swing, I enjoyed taking photos of the beautiful colors in my front yard.  Here are some of the pictures I took trying to use Macro feature in my digital camera.  I guess I did a good job. :)

Can you see the ant?  Find the ant :)

Love the lavender color

This flower looks big.  But it's not :)

Love the clear blue sky

Getting Ready For Fall

Being a stay-at-home mom requires lots of patience.  My daughter is getting more and more active each day.  And the time for chores, to me, is getting shorter.  But when I have free time, I get to use it to do some quick tidying up like organizing my closet because I want to put in my Fall clothing collection including this new little black dress I got.  This is a cute dress that fits really well on me.  And it is my kind of style.  I like wearing dark colors in the Fall and Winter.

There are lots of things I needed to do these days.  In the next coming months, my mind will be spinning around trying to accommodate the special occasions and travel plans.  Shopping for gifts is in the priority list.  This little black dress is a good gift idea too.

A Joyful Fairy Visited My Home Today

Oh!  Thanks much to the Fairy Hobmother.  He came and visited my humble home and sprinkled some pixie dusts on here.  I am very happy because he granted my wish.  I have been a good girl you know.  As a stay-at-home mother and full time housewife, I do all the chores in the house.  And laundry is on the Top 5 in my priority list.  Working on the laundry using an energy efficient washing machine is worth doing.  And included in the Top 5 Washing Machines reviews, I am proud. 
So stay nice and cheerful.  The Fairy Hobmother is roaming around the blogosphere spreading joy and happiness.  Who knows, he will be in your doorsteps any minute now.  To help you catch his attention, follow him on (@FairyHobmother).  For more chances, please leave a comment in this post together with your blogs letting him know he's welcome.

Weekend Snapshot: Spaghetti, Water Park, And A Souvenir

Delicious Spaghetti with Polish sausage
Waterpark in Garland, Texas
Remembrance from the getaway
It was a very sunny afternoon Saturday and our family was busy today.  First, we took my daughter to her swimming lesson at YMCA.  After the 30-minute splashing in the pool, we head home and had lunch at a pizza parlor close to our house.  I ordered my favorite Spaghetti with Polish sausage.  My daughter likes spaghetti too.  My husband had a medium sized pizza supreme.

Second, I had a swimming party in Garland with friends.  Though I was very late coming, I was able to enjoy the thrill slides and swimming itself.  We went to the Hawaiian Falls in Garland.  Because I want aware of the people behind me at the Wave Pool, I scraped my knee.  Injured.  Not cool!  I cleaned and put anti-infection cream on the wound as soon as I got home.  I hope it won't scar or it would be truly a souvenir from Hawaiian Falls. :)

New Fan In The House

So my husband bought a home fan to help the air conditioner minimize its running.  The summer heat is unbearable, I know.  The heat makes a person irritable sometimes.  In our house, we decided to add a fan.  It helped though.  The air circulates better and the air-conditioner does not run frequently.

What I don't like about it is the noise.  Yeah.  I cannot concentrate with my work.  Well, we put the fan in the dining area and I my computer is on the table.  So I am actually beside the fan.  Hah!  I guess I have to get used to it now.

Fixed Home Equipment And Appliance

So the microwave oven is fixed.  My husband came home from work with new fuse.  He replaced fuse in the microwave.  For two days, it was an inconvenience for me to use the traditional oven to heat food for lunch and dinner at that time.  Gladly my hubby found out the problem and fixed it this evening while my baby and I were gone to a Bible Study.

The kitchen appliance is eight years old and, I think, it needed some maintenance.  We are not ready to buy new appliances for the house right now.  There are plenty of things in priority.  So the thought of replacing new microwave oven is, maybe or will be in the next few years.

We had three solved problems as far as home equipment is concerned.  The air-conditioning is working properly because there were parts replaced.  The leaking roof was fixed because a roofer replaced some shingles correctly.  And, the microwave oven is functioning great now because new fuse is installed.
