That's what's by our front door yesterday afternoon...around 5:30. It's something I've never seen before here in our neck of the weeds. Well, there's one time when it hailed here but it was teeny weeny hail like the size of a grain of rice and it only lasted for a few minutes. We had to search for good sized hail then so we could take a picture of it. Yesterday, we didn't have to search for it as you can see.  This time around the hails were much bigger, maybe the size of a quarter for the most part but some were bigger. It lasted for a good 15 to about 20 minutes. It was kinda' fun and exciting at first but when it started to drop like we're being attacked, it got a wee bit scary. It felt like gravel was being poured on our roof at one point. I didn't know where to go to get a good look at it because it was also raining hard. Our polonia tree in front got pelted so bad that a lot of its leaves have holes on them now. Its usual perky demeanor i

S-O-R-E All Over!

It maybe from my "weeding regimen" every morning. Yep, I now call it regimen. I used to call it 'weeding addiction' but regimen sounds a lot better don't you think? I'm on my second week of doing that and so far I've done maybe a quarter of the front yard. Slowly but surely I must add. The part that I've done so far is the area right in front of my home office so I can sit back and admire my 'work of art' when I'm not busy doing other things. LOL! I do enjoy doing it...more than my regular morning walks on the Mobia anyway. At least with this I see some kind of a result. You know the fruit of my labor kind of thing. Ha! Anyway, days have been flying. We're almost halfway 2014 already. How did that happen? Aside from my little project in the front yard, there is nothing much keeping me busy nowadays. I still have my usual gigs and of course the little one's schooling but other than that there's nothing new. Well, I'm actual

Yard Plans

So I'm back doing my favorite past time...weeding! Yep, I've been doing that since last week. I usually do it early in the morning, around 7:30 to about 9:30 everyday. Instead of walking on a machine every morning, I now go out there with a weed roller and weed picker to 'conquer' the front yard. Weeds have taken over our yard in the last couple of years. We originally planned in hiring professionals to re-sod it but we decided not to anymore. Hubby started buying plug-in sods and he's been plugging it on the bald spots of our yard. I decided to help by pulling out weeds thus creating more bald spots. Ha! Anyway, that's the plan for the front yard. As for the backyard, we have a whole other plans for it. We want to put some fixtures there like maybe a gazebo or a swing set. Hubby already saw a swing set in chesapeake va  for sale that he's interested in. I don't know if it's a good idea to order something from out of state but we may just give it a

It's Time....

This is probably the longest I haven't posted on this blog. Don't get me wrong. I tried. In vain. I think I drafted a post 3 or 4 times already and they all ended up in the trash bin...well, virtual trash bin that is. So what have I been up to? Not much actually. Life's going. Ups and downs just like the usual. Everyday is something I'm thankful for just being around. Last month the little one turned a year older. She's getting closer to being a teen. And so I ask what every parent like me asks...where has time gone? Of course we know. We just can't believe how fast she's been growing. Everytime I look at her I can't help but be very grateful for having her in our lives. She's definitely the BEST THING that happened to me and my husband. I can only wish she continues to grow up to be the fine person that she is right now. Other than that nothing much [important stuff that is] happened. I guess that's basically the reason why I haven't h
