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.

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.

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.
