Why weather cannot make up her mind

It was 79 degrees Fahrenheit that day. It feels lot like summer though it is spring. The kids were enjoying the sun that day. They wear tanks, shorts and flip-flops. What an awesome treat that s from the weather.

The kids even take off their flip-flops and barefoot. They both have the white feet. It needs the sun very badly. Later we know, the weather cannot make up her mind again. The next day, it was snowing and back to the winter weather. The temperature was in the 30's. It went from 79 to 30 and back to winter coat and boots again.

winter is back the next day
Today feels like winter too. It is not snowing but it is really cold. You need to bundled-up if you want to get out. Tomorrow the highs will be in the 60's, that would be awesome.

How is the weather where you at right now?

It's raining and it's pouring

I woke up with a pouring rain this morning. I never thought that my day will like that too. I read my niece Facebook and that my younger sister will finally have her surgery. Everything went great with all her blood work done. I cannot stop crying. I feel so helpless because I am thousand miles away. I want to help her and her family. I cannot do that because I am very far.

I just write my emotions in my Facebook. I ask my friends to please include her in their prayers. I do appreciate all the comments and especially those wonderful prayers that come from their hearts. I cannot help myself crying. My eyes are really puffy since this morning.

The sun is shining now. I thank God for that. I feel a lot better too. I might shed some tears but not as bad when I woke up this morning. In few hours, my younger sister will have her surgery. I surrender everything to God. He is the best doctor that can heal my sister. I pray also to God that he will guide those amazing doctors that will do the surgery to my younger sister. I hope and pray that everything will be alright. Please continue to pray for my younger sister. I thank you all so much for that.

A monopoly game from our local grocery store

I love to do my grocery in our local store called Tops. I think their prices are cheaper. I have to makes sure that I shop the sales too. They always have a buy one get one. I love the local store because it is only ten minutes from where we live. I have shopped my grocery since I came here in America in the local store.

tickets for the monopoly games
A few weeks ago, they are having a monopoly game for their valued customers. I never win their big prizes yet. It is very easy to join the monopoly game. You get a ticket in each item they feature. The prizes are from cash, appliances, gadgets and trips.

I won a bag of frozen vegetable
I never win the big prizes yet. I only win free items. I won two free items last week that I need to redeem. Sometimes I won free monopoly tickets. I need to get my board to paste all the my tickets. Please wish me luck. It would be awesome to win the cash. I really needed it this time to help me younger sister who needs monetary help so bad for her upcoming surgery.

Thank you so much Ms. Rachelle Ayala for sending me the paperback signed copy of your new book TAMING ROMEO

The moment that Ms. Rachelle Ayala told me that she sent me the paperback signed copy of TAMING ROMEO in the mail, my heart never stop from beating. I am very excited and cannot wait for the book to receive it. I waited for three days and was disappointed that the book did not arrive yet.

A very cold but beautiful day after the blizzard
I took some pictures from yesterday. It is hard to see the backyard. The patio is covered with snow in no time. The next day school is back. I took this picture of my son on the driveway while the sun almost rise. We had enough amount of snow. It was very cold this morning. It was 7 degrees but feels like negative 10. Despite being cold yet it is still a beautiful day.

My K singing LET IT GO from the movie Frozen

We watched the movie Frozen at the movie theater with her niece last December. It was an awesome movie for the kids especially for little girls. It was our girls lunch date. We all enjoyed the movie very much. I cannot wait to buy the DVD when it will come out sometime this month.

Anyway, my little K loves to sing. She is just like her Mommy. We both share our passion for music. My little K is very shy just like her Mommy when I was a little girl. Mommy E shared a free link to watch the movie Frozen. I was really sleepy but the little K want to watch it. I let her use my new laptop.

I woke up because she was singing the theme song of the movie. I told her to sing again and will record it. Here she is singing Let it go. I am so sorry for the messy background. I hope you like her singing.
