Yesterday and Today

It was such a big change and I was amazed on how much the snow milted and gone for just over night. The first picture was taken yesterday (Thanksgiving Day) and I'm sure there was at least two inches of snow in the ground. But today (Black Friday)  this morning when I looked outside, the snow was gone, gone with the wind. Anyways, I found it interesting so I thought I'd share it with you guys. If you look closer on the first picture, you'll see several birds are in that tree and the squirrel eating.

Up for a Ride

These dogs were really up for the ride. They were so happy sticking their heads out and feeling the cold wind blow on their face. Although I found it not safe but they probably will not jump.
It was windy cold and this woman was up for a back ride. I found it interesting that this man was wearing shorts even though it was cold, not much snow on the ground but the wind made it so cold. Anyway, he was happily carrying this woman on his back.

Snow and Wind

Friday night, the wind was blowing and snow was falling hard, in an hour we had at least 2 inches of snow in the ground. I am kind of happy to see the snow, it reminded me of Fairbanks Alaska and my friends that I left behind. I guess the snow is staying for a while and the wind still blowing hard but it's okay I'm gonna be busy inside working on the house for this coming week.

Squirrel Domination

We have been enjoying our new friends in our back yard but I think they're going to get us broke. One bag of squirrel food only lasts for 2 days. Last week we only have one kind of squirrel (Black) but now there's two kinds and this one is so aggressive. They chase away the ones who got close to them even the birds, however, the black squirrels got along well. I guess, discrimination does exist not only for humans but for animals too.

I love watching them and could watch them for a long time. It's so funny when they run around and find a place to dig and hide their food. They're so cute but I wonder if they'll do harm in our yard. I'm just getting to know them and don't know much about them.

Wild Flowering Vines

I love this wild flowering vines but I don't know what it is. If someone knew what it is, please tell me, I would really appreciate it. Thank you

Red Maple

People change, season change, everything changes! First thing comes in my mind whenever I see this tree was the song by Sanctus Real "It's time for healing time to move on. It's time to fix what's been broken too long. Time to make right what has been wrong. It's time to find my way to where I belong."

Are you worried?

Do not be worry as the bible says in Luke 12: 22-26
Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?  Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

What God Wants?

Why do we usually wait for God to show us what he wants for us? Why do we keep asking God to show us what he wants? Doesn't it God already have what he wants? Doesn't it God gave us freewill to do what we wants?


Well, I have come to realize that it is my decision to start doing something, to make a difference in my life and others. I believe that He will supply our needs and that He will guide us every step of the way. So, I guess it is up for us to take the  first step and stop waiting for God to show us what he wants for he already have what he wants..Right?

Restless




You dwell in the songs that we are singing
Rising to the Heavens Rising to Your heart
Our praises filling up the spaces
In between and frailty and everything You are
You are the keeper of my heart

And I’m restless I’m restless ‘Til I rest in You
(Oh God, I wanna rest in You)

Oh speak now for my soul is listening
Say that You have saved me
Whisper in the dark
‘Cause I know You’re more than my salvation
Without You I am hopeless
Tell me who You are
You are the keeper of my heart

Still my heart Hold me close
Let me hear a still small voice
Let it grow Let it rise
Into a shout Into a cry
I am restless until I rest in You

Kiteboarding Playground

A playground for kite boarders. A view from our back yard when the weather turns windy and cold. I used to think that when it's rainy and windy outside, it's not a good day. But these kite boarders gave me a new perspective. It is like heaven to them, I think they even pray for the weather to be like that. I love watching them, especially when they jump few feet above the water. I also love watching them when they go so fast, I don't how many miles/hr, but it looks fast that if they're driving like that on the road they'll probably get a big ticket and even get in an accident. I think this sport is good for people who are speed maniacs, they can go as fast as they want and don't get someone hurt, just themselves.

Kiteboarding is one of the items on my bucket list. Hopefully I'll get to do it soon. I kind of hesitant though because of the cold weather.

Service Sunday

Yesterday was a Service Sunday at the church that we're attending. Service Sunday is where the congregation goes out to the community and does some community work instead of having a worship gathering in the church. The church does this twice a year. There were dozens of projects that they put out so the congregation can choose from; going to nursing home, cleaning project, winterize project, yard work and so on. My hubby and I had the opportunity to do some yard work for the family that have Lyme disease. I think it's a great thing that the church does this.
Last night there's also a Harvest Celebration Dinner. The congregation contributes and bring food to church and we all enjoy it together.

Fall Floral Arrangement

My first Fall floral arrangement and it didn't cost me a thing. I went to Bakerview nursery this afternoon and attended a free seminar for putting Fall arrangement together. When I got home, I went to our back yard and gathered all these leaves and twigs and put them together.

So here it is, I guess it's not bad and I'm enjoying it.
This morning I had the pleasure of  watching these birds just siting beautifully on the top of this bush.
