Making Your Weekend Worthwhile

Staying at home with your family is such a relaxing moment especially if the whole family is present. At home you can do anything to make your weekend or holiday a worthwhile respite from usual activities. For most mothers like me they can try their cooking skills and serve the best meals for their family. Some can try their green thumbs in gardening and others can say enjoy a good movie to make the best of family togetherness. Enjoying time together with the family is not just relaxing but making such good memories as well. 

Music is also such as a great way to make the weekend something to look up to especially if you have kids like me who can play musical instruments with ease and inspiration. Well my son just mentioned cobra clutch and how good it will be on music playing. He’s such a good searcher and he googles everything he needs to know just like his favorite musical instruments and accessories. I know he’ll make a nice musician in the next years to come.

The Calming Effect of Music to Our Home

Last weekend is such a nice long weekend because we all had a rest; we didn’t plan to go anywhere so we just had a good family time together in the house. Well my girls, as expected have some college papers and drawings to do so they’re glad to have some day off the university. They both go to the same university so it’s easier for me to monitor them. They’re taking up two quite different courses; the eldest in Hospitality Management dealing with hotel, restaurant, resort, cruise and transportation management and the younger daughter pursuing Industrial Engineering. I’m lucky to have two dedicated students who want to reach their dreams. They’re both inspired with their chosen career and will study hard to achieve their goals. 

Well life is not all work and no play as with my girls they also relax and take a break from studying and when they do they manage to tinker their favorite musical instruments to unwind and have some nice sounds. Gen is playing various instruments but her favorite is guitar. She’s actually pining for an electrical guitar these past few weeks especially when she gets to see charvel san dimas. Playing guitar is such a nice respite for her from many pressures of taking up Engineering and when she does it she’s also making me feel serene and happy. That’s the effect of hearing her play a guitar or keyboard to me, a calming effect.

Outdoor Home Decor Lightings


We love staying at the patio or at our terrace in the house but when it's dark outside we never stay late there as it's not so conducive to chatting and bonding.  We don't want to stay in a place where the lightings are not enough to create a cozy and warm ambiance.  Well I've seen plenty of light effects on some of the houses that my brother has built and I can say that these lights are a lot different from what I saw.

These clusters of light located in patio corners are ideal lights for the outdoor area in your house where you can feel the warmth of the golden shades of light, just enough to make your stay worthwhile and pleasant.  At first I thought that it's a DIY project only but when I took a closer look I realized it's meant for patio corner's lightings to bring some life into the corner of the patio.  And life indeed because the lights in the image above added attraction and respect also.

Saw these bubble caged glass lanterns from potterybarn.com.

My little boy saw this and he loves this and imagines playing in their school play as a pirate. This school year they were trained and taught different roles to play. He played as a politician, engineer, fireman, street boy and many other roles. He excitedly played them all and got good grades. With all of those plays we did some really hard to do props like fire truck, car, armor of God and a lot more.

His Dad contributed a lot in his school works arranging all costumes and things to use and even spent over nights. Anyway Josh just told me that this pirate playhouse is really cool and nice to play with his school friends with pirate costumes of course. Boys are boys and they really are excited over playing things they see on movies. Now if you're ready to play in this playhouse get ready with your costumes.

Plans for New Bedroom

I’m excited by the plans hubby has made for the construction of a new bedroom for us. Since we’ve renovated our ground floor last year to make way for Ruth’s debut we haven’t planned where to construct our new room. Our old bedroom was removed and turned into a new dining area which was suggested by my brother since it has a not-so-nice vibration. It was found out that it stands on an old septic tank and according to Feng Shui it should not be made a sleeping area as the area should be open to invite a good ambiance. True enough blessings came pouring in when the old room was removed and now the open room seems very cool and has a friendly ambiance. 

Now we’re eyeing the area at the top of our kitchen since it’s the only area in the house with no upper floor. We’re going to save for slab and hopefully we’re going to start the construction next year. Since it’s a big area we’re planning a big room with extra space for my growing up boy’s musical instruments. He really wanted a separate room for the instruments so we’re saving some space for his request. Lately he’s been looking frequently at an online shop for piano music and for some of his most wanted musical accessories and instruments, wondering when he can buy some of the stuff there. Well for now he can’t buy all those things but maybe in the next few years we can invest on some.

Green Thumb for Gardening


Mom always has a green thumb in planting any flower, tree or plant in our garden and backyard. Every single thing that she plants grows abundantly. Since she’s old now and we don’t want her to do any task in the house she concentrates her time on gardening with the help of my husband who does the hard tasks. She would smile every time she sees a bud that blooms and a root that produce stems.

She loves gardening so much that I want to give her some nice garden gifts as I know she’ll appreciate it so much. She’s been telling me few days ago that maybe we should buy more pots so she can distribute her growing flowers on different places. Her enthusiasm is infectious as my husband is into gardening too much to my surprise. Just imagine my astonishment that after 20 years of marriage he’s learning the gardening skills. His brother is a landscaper so maybe he’s got talents too.
