Trip to Fort Ransom

When we have some special place to go, I am always up bright and early. My husband usually wakes up first. He always let me sleep a little longer then I will wake up. It snowed the whole morning yesterday. I thought we're going to postponed our trip to Fort Ransom. However, after 11AM yesterday, it stopped snowing. The husband asked me if I still want to go out. Are you kidding me? Of course I want to go out and enjoy ourselves! So I got up, put on 3 layers of clothes, leggings and jeans, 2 pairs of socks and my boots.

I am so happy that the snow stopped. The temperature was in the 20's. Driving to Fort Ransom took us about 1 hour and 15 minutes. We drove around town, we saw more than 20 deer and more than 50 pheasants. I wanted to try a winter activity but the Bear's Den Ski Resort is close on Thursday. They are only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I would really love to try skiing, so next week I might get my wish!

Better Late Than Never

I got a Christmas card from my sister! It took a long time to get here from the Philippines because the greeting card passed through Singapore and stayed a while. I told her to send the card directly from the main post office in Makati City, Philippines but she didn't have the time. I don't know where she sent it but I am happy for the thought that she sent me a Christmas greeting card.

Icy Darkness

As usual, I woke up late again today. I can hear the wind whistling. My husband was watching the news when I came to the living room. It is snowing outside. I can feel the chill in the air and the wind whistle. A winter storm dumped about 5 inches of snow in our area. We are lucky that we didn't lose power. I just don't know what to do when there's no power, meaning to say that I don't have internet, no TV and all. It is just scary to think.

I heard in the news that with temperatures plunging, utility officials warned that it could be mid-February before electricity is restored to some of the hardest-hit places. The worst of the power failures were in Arkansas, Kentucky and Ohio. My husband called his son in Kentucky and he said that the storm wasn't really bad where he lives. I hope it stops snowing tonight so we can go somewhere tomorrow.

It Is Back!

I am exaggeratedly screaming at the top of my lungs right now! Why? I have the right to jump with all my joy and happiness. My page rank is back! I visited PayPerPost today and I have 12 opportunities, including the 4 opportunities, which I am not allowed to take. I clicked on one opportunity and one of the opportunity requirements says that the minimum Google page rank should be 1. I thought I am not qualified but when I checked my blogs, the page rank of this blog - A Place of Reflection is back!

What a lucky day! Now I have no reason to be frowned or sad. I am happy today despite the cold weather today and no sunshine again. A special thanks to all my friends who uplift my spirit and gave comments. I am very happy today!

My Simple Rants

I woke up around 11AM today. The sun shines so bright this morning. We are lucky to see the sun again. But the weather is still cold. As usual, we stayed home and bore ourselves watching TV and facing the computer and internet. I guess this is my everyday routine. I wish that the weather will get better on Thursday and this weekend. I can't wait to go to Fort Ransom when the weather warms up for a little bit. I just can't wait to see what activities they have there. The husband and I are dying to try one of the winter sports. Let's see about that!

I Cannot Take It

I have been constantly visiting PayPerPost everyday about 3-5 times a day. I am happy to announce that I have 4 opportunities in 3P but I can't take them. It says that:
  • Please do not take this opp if you have submitted a post for our URLS - in the last 6 months.
Unfortunately, I took an opportunity about paintball in the last 6 months dated July 15, 2008. I guess I just have to share it with everybody. I wish to get more opportunities before I get back to work by spring time.

Pink Heart Tag

The Pink Heart - Listen to what my heart says. I got this tag from Madz - The Pride of Hingotanan Bohol. She's just one sweet and adorable woman I just met in the blogosphere. Thank you for this tag Madz! I really appreciate that you remember me.

Please spend time to scroll down and take time to read every line, and ask GOD what does He want to tell you.
The 10 Commandments are not a multiple choice.
Your mind is like a parachute. It functions only when open.

One thing you can give and still keep is your word.
You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself,
you lack the courage to start you have already finished.
One thing that you can't recycle is wasted time.
Ideas won't work unless YOU do.
The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge.
Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
A sharp tongue can cut your own throat.

If you want your dreams to come true, you must not oversleep.
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.
The best vitamin for making friends is B1.

The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime!
It is never too late to become what you might have been.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the one's who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Friends are like balloons, once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems, that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right or wrong. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen, so I'm gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you.

What's Your Word?

Your Word is "Think"

You see life as an amazing mix of
possibilities, ideas, and fascinations.

And sometimes you feel like
you don't have enough time to take it all in.

You love learning.
Whether you're in school or not,
you're probably immersed in several subjects right now.

When you're not learning, you're busy reflecting.
You think a lot about the people you know
and the things you've experienced.

Where is My Page Rank?

Ouch! The word came out from my mouth when I discovered yesterday that I lost my page rank in this blog. I keep on wishing that I won't be affected when Google updated their system. I really don't know how things work out about page rank but I wish I can gain it back. I guess, I have to work hard to earn a page rank again. Any comments and suggestions?

Tomorrow Can Be Too Late

I got this from my e-mail. This was forwarded to me a long time ago. I want to share it with you. This message is really nice.
  • If you're mad with someone, and nobody's there to fix the situation... You fix it! Maybe today, that person still wants to be your friend. And if you don't, tomorrow can be too late.
  • If you're in-love with somebody, but that person doesn't know, tell him or her. Maybe today, that person is also in-love with you. And if you don't say it, tomorrow can be too late.
  • If you really want to kiss somebody, kiss him or her. Maybe that person wants a kiss from you too. And if you don't kiss him or her today, tomorrow can be too late.
  • If you still love a person that you think has forgotten you... tell him or her. Maybe that person have always loved you. And if you don't tell him or her today, tomorrow can be too late.
  • If you need a hug of a friend, ask him or her for it. Maybe they need it more than you do. And if you don't ask for it today, tomorrow can be too late.
  • If you really have friends who you appreciate, tell them. Maybe they appreciate you as well. That if you don't and they leave or go far away today, tomorrow can be too late.
  • If you love your parents, and never had the chance to show them, do it! Maybe you have them there to show them how you feel. That if you don't and they leave today, then tomorrow can be too late.

President Obama's Inauguration

It's all over the news! I know that some of you have watched it. We took a moment to watch President Obama's inauguration. He is the 44th and the 1st African-American President of United States of America. It was a wonderful moment for him. He's being serenaded by the "Queen of the Soul," Aretha Franklin. The singer bedazzled with her voice and did you notice her hat? I listened carefully on his speech. I watched the parade too which is very interesting, colorful and full of fun.

We have a new and fresh President. He will start office on Wednesday, that will be tomorrow after capping inaugural festivities at a national prayer service in the morning. The 44th President said, "We gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord."

Congratulations President Obama!

New Year, New Look!

Before shaving!

I just want to share the new look of my husband for the New Year. It is not yet springtime but the husband decided to shave his head. I told him to wait when springtime comes then he can shave his head, but he said, I couldn't wait anymore. I guess he will have to wear a bonnet to protect his head from the cold weather for the remaining wintertime.

After shaving!

Chicken Livers With Onions

How many of you eat chicken livers? Some people said it is good to eat but for me, it's not really my cup of tea. I don't eat chicken, pork or beef livers. I just can't swallow it. My mother said, I am fussy. My sister loves to eat it too. My husband cooked chicken livers with onions yesterday and I didn't eat anything he cooked. He ended up cooking the chicken gizzards with onions for me instead. How about you? Do you have any special recipe when cooking chicken livers or chicken gizzards?

Opportunities Strike!

I know that all of you are aware of what's going on with PayPerPost right now. I have read some bloggers who complain about the offer amount. You think it's crazy when you see an opportunity with an offer amount of $0.50! But in my part, I don't want to complain. It is still a blessing for me. Before, I don't get that much opportunities from them. I get lucky when I have 1 or 2 opportunities in a month. I think I am still a struggling blogger. I welcome every opportunity awaits me.

I just wish it will go back to its regular offer amount which is from $5.00 to higher amount. What do you think?

They Got It!

I can imagine all the happiness of my mom, my sisters and cousin when they got the balikbayan box I sent them November 18 of last year. They received the box late afternoon of January 14, Philippine time. It is my first ever balikbayan gifts for them. My mom sent me a message immediately as soon as they got the box. She was very happy to tell me the good news. For now, I don't have to worry for anything to send them. But for sure, before this year ends, they will receive something from me again. I just love to make them happy and see their smiles on their faces.

The 10 Commandments of Marriage

Good marriages don't just happen. It is not just because you married the right person and got lucky. Good marriages are built on more than passion. They are built on principle. In the scriptures, we find the best guidelines and principles for a healthy marriage. God's words and God's principles are never ever outdated. Never! I want to point us to principles that God has given us in a place you might not think was intended for marriage. That place is in the 10 Commandments found in Exodus 20.
  • The 1st Commandment of Marriage: Exclusivity
  • The 2nd Commandment of Marriage: Don't Love a Substitute
  • The 3rd Commandment of Marriage: Speak Well of Your Mate
  • The 4th Commandment of Marriage: Spend Exclusive Time Together
  • The 5th Commandment of Marriage: Honor Your Spouse by Showing How Grateful You Are
  • The 6th Commandment of Marriage: Don't Destroy Your Spouse But Learn to be Gentle
  • The 7th Commandment of Marriage: Do Not Commit Adultery
  • The 8th Commandment of Marriage: Be a Person of Integrity
  • The 9th Commandment of Marriage: Be Truthful
  • The 10th Commandment of Marriage:Be Content With What You Have

Bored and Restless

The boredom strikes again! For some people like me who lives in Northern Midwest, life here in the winter time is very depressing. It's a long winter days and nights, the snow never melts. The sun rarely shines. And we are preparing for our third blizzard tonight. You can't get out of the house and you can't see across the street.

Earlier today, my husband plowed the driveway because tonight and tomorrow we will get an additional 10 inches of snow. So you think it is cool living in the snow? You have to give it a try. My friends back home are telling me how cool I am experiencing the snow. But they really don't understand how miserable it really is. Tell me what you think!

Express Yourself in Gardening

I have no luck for growing plants but my husband is very good at it. He's been doing it since he was a kid. He's been telling me a story how he put his heart and all the hard work making a vegetable garden. He just loves gardening. In fact, just last year, he made a vegetable garden. We had all beautiful flowers and vegetables growing together. It was his masterpiece!
He will be celebrating his birthday on March 25, just after springtime opens. This will be a good start. Together with our couple of friends, my plan is, we will apply for the Project Orange Thumb grant. We want to be part of it. Fiskars Project Orange Thumb is a community gardening grant program. The project is open to any group of individuals concerned with greening, sustainable agriculture, horticulture education or neighborhood beautification. This will be a good chance to enhance and stimulate our own skills in gardening. We can also build and meet good friendship with our gardeners.

The good news is, Fiskars Project Orange Thumb grant is a great resource to provide the gardening tools to begin a garden or enhance a garden that already existed. How cool can that be? I am sure that the tools we are going to use are new and some of the best up-to-date tools available. What's your plan this coming springtime? Join us to make the world green and beautiful by signing and applying HERE. The application deadline will be on February 17, 2009. Who knows, you might be one of the lucky grant recipients of up to $1,000 in green goods and $1,500 in Fiskars gardening tools.

Cajun Shrimp With Vegetables

I was feeling hungry earlier and decided to cook the fresh asparagus we bought last Monday. The recipe I had in mind was to use scallops together with the asparagus. I didn't know that we ran out of scallops so I used the shrimp instead. I am thinking what would be the best recipe I can cook with shrimp and asparagus that is easy and I wouldn't wait long cooking them. I took the red and yellow bell peppers out from the refrigerator.

  • 1 pound of raw extra large shrimp
  • 1 bundle of fresh asparagus
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, slice into strips
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, slice into strips
  • 1 teaspoon of granulated garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sesame seeds
  • First, boil the fresh asparagus for 3-5 minutes, enough for the asparagus to be tender. Heat the skillet and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Add and saute the shrimp. Sprinkle the granulated garlic and ground ginger. Stir-fry until the shrimp turns red.
  • Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning over the shrimp. Add salt and pepper.
  • Put the asparagus, stir-fry and lastly, add the red and yellow bell peppers. Stir-fry until vegetables are cook.
  • Serve hot and sprinkle sesame seeds on top of it.
Note: You can squeeze lemon on top of it if you like. In my case, my husband doesn't like lemon because he said it's sour. So I ended up eating the lemon and it feels like I am drinking tequila.

Feel Sexy and Confident!

They always say, "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder." However, some people contradict to that statement, as they know how they really feel, left alone in the dark and lost their confidence. I myself was a witness for losing my own confidence. I do not feel sexy and confident enough to show off my body because I have big and bloated tummy. I am shy to wear sexy bikinis because I do not want anyone to see me with a big belly. That is not sexy! I felt troubled with that big problem.

I visited the website of Make Yourself Amazing (MYA), a cosmetic surgery that specializes in breast enhancement, but also offers a full range of surgical and non-surgical procedures. They also offer the best advice and to be able to produce an amazing result. They will provide all the details that you need to know to give you information on whatever procedure you will take. As I go over their website, I clicked on body reshaping menu and found out about tummy surgery. This procedure will trim unwanted fats from the tummy and tightens the abdominal muscles. For sure, it will give me back the confidence I lost for a long time. I will never hide my confidence ever again.

If you want to look good and be confident, visit the website - MYA UK and feel the amazing results you could ever have. Stop hiding yourself and gain back the confidence you once lost.

Picture Meme

Yikes! A picture meme. A tag from Amor - Here, There, Whatever!. I don't know what will I do when I got this tag. As all of my photos are stored in CD's so I won't have a problem deleting them when the memory of my computer will be full.

Here are the rules:

1. Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.
2. Go to the 6th Folder and then pick the 6th Picture.
3. Post it on your blog and tell the story that goes with the picture.
4. Tag 5 other glorious people to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog telling them about it.

Me and Melissa - the bride

The picture above was taken last December 14, 2006 during my friend's wedding and it was her groom who took this picture. Melissa and I were classmates in college on the same course (Business Management). We are also travel buddies. We have traveled from Luzon-Visayas-Mindanao. Our travel memories were unbelievable. We have traveled by plane, bus, boat, car, and MRT or LRT (the elevated train). I guess the only thing we haven't traveled by is the train. Since we don't have much railroad tracks back home.

She's been married for 2 years now and she will be celebrating her birthday on January 14. The good news about her right now is, she will be expecting a baby by the middle of the year. I miss her company and I am pretty sure that she misses mine too.

I am passing this Picture Meme to more than 5 people: Adin, Anne Bianca, Dhemcy, Donabel, Ivy, Joy-Anne, Lira, Richelle, Roche, Rowena, Sweetie Pie and Umma

Being Voracious!

It was just an ordinary day for me today. After paying all the bills we got, I am done paying them and I mailed the last bill today. We still have this annoying cold weather that I wish it will be totally gone in an instant. We went to country market in town and bought bananas and pork chop meat. We didn't follow what's exactly on our list and ended up buying more.

When we got home, my husband requested a pork chop meal. He started to grill it but the grill would not work and passed the cooking job to me. I cooked the recipe I got from Rowena - Ribs with Consomme Soup. But, instead of using ribs, I used the pork chop meat. I wasn't able to take a picture of what it look like because the husband was very hungry and ate it.

Around 9PM this evening, we were feeling hungry and decided to eat the leftover - Pork chop with Consomme Soup. My husband jokingly said, it won't be long now that we will look like a big fat pig. Can you blame us? It's the only thing we can do in this very cold weather.

Snow it Baby!

It's the first Sunday of the year. I woke up late this morning for the 10:30AM mass. I thought I can make it by dressing up so quick but the husband said we can't go out of the house because of the snow. So, you want me to blame the snow? I can blame myself too for not being up early in the morning. We ended up staying home instead and decided to take the 6PM mass.

The husband was patient enough to plow the snow from the driveway with his old tractor. And I am telling you that it wasn't easy being out in a cold weather. Aren't you going to ask me what I did while the husband was out? I was in-front of my computer doing EC dropping and visiting my friend's blog site. What a lazy butt I got! After facing the computer, I made my part as a homemaker. I did cook for our lunch and pampered my husband with all my love and care.

Double Awards for this New Year

Awards for the New Year? Wow! What a day! I am so lucky to have this 2 awards given to me by Umma - Happy Moments, Happy Thoughts. She's the adorable woman I just met thru blogging. I love to visit her page often as it is full of information and cute pictures about her family. Who knows, maybe someday, I may know all about her and meet her in person. Umma, thank you for this beautiful tag. It really made my day.

The second picture is just adorable to see. I miss my mother and 2 sisters back home (Philippines). It has been 2 consecutive Christmas and New Year that I am away from them. This picture reminds me of how I wanted to be with them at this very moment.

Now, I am passing this two awards to all my sweet friends who have continued to support me and keep on visiting me here. I am happy that we are friends.

A New Beginning

Now that this is the second day of the first month of the year 2009, I have so many things in mind. Still, the temperature didn't change for a while. We are still below zero degrees. Gosh! I can't even enjoy my winter time. I told myself before winter will start, I am going to enjoy the whole winter. But the weather will not cooperate with me. Give me a break! I have been a prisoner of our own home. My husband has been complaining as we can't go anywhere. Is this the new life we have chosen?

We can't go out of the house because we have 4-feet of snow. The snow is piled up around our house, and it looks like an igloo. They are forecasting that there will be more snow and very cold weather. We really want to go South. All we can do is eat, sleep, cuddle with each other and watch TV. Our life has never been boring like this!

My New Year's Resolution
